Of all the ways I love to get the know a couple, I think my favorite one by far is spending an hour or two walking around with them and talking during an engagement session as it really gives you an opportunity to see a future bride and groom in a relaxed setting where they can let their guard down and, unlike a wedding day, there's little to no stress about being at a certain place at a certain time and no one else around trying to distract your couple.
These sessions tend to bring out a lot of the personality of a bride and groom and nowhere was that more evident than with Alison and Gary, whose engagement session I photographed back in September in downtown Providence.
Even though I had just met Alison and Gary a few weeks before their session, spending two hours with them walking through the Providence area proved invaluable as I could see the way they interacted with each other and get to know how serious they DON'T take themselves.
To say it was fun is an understatement. This was a session that was a treat in every way possible.
So, if you're a fan of cute couples and the city of Providence, check out Alison & Gary's engagement session here.
As always, thanks for following along and let me know what you think!
