Engagement Photo Blogs

     Long before you walk down the aisle to exchange your wedding rings, there's a crucial first step in showing your friends and family how special your relationship is with the person you'll soon call your husband or wife. That step is the engagement photograph.

     Are you a fun, care-free or traditional couple? Do you have shared interests? Is there a place that holds a special significance for you? If so, don't you want your photos to show who you really are?

     These are the questions I ask the couples I work with as I strive to shoot an engagement photo session tailor-made for their unique love story. And I've been blessed with some truly amazingbrides and grooms over the last few years who embrace this concept fully.

     Whether it's a winter, snow-filled trek through the woods in Connecticut or a sweltering summer night on a bridge at Ryan Park in North Kingstown, the tales we tell on these shoots is so unlike any other photography I do ... and it's so much fun.

     That's why, beginning in 2017, I decided to write about these shoots much like I do my wedding photography. Below, please check out some of my most recent engagement shoots and be sure to check back in this space regularly as I'm looking to really expand this line of work for the 2018 wedding season. 

     Want to do an engagement session for you and your special person? Contact me today to set it up. I'd love to tell your story the way I've helped these couples tell theirs.
