This engagement session was so awesome! It was actually broken into two....we knew that we were going to be shooting in and around the North End, but as we neared the end of the session and walked by a building that was enjoying the weather on their roof deck, Amanda and Patrick came up with a great idea! They have spent the last year and a half renovating their condo, here in the North End and although it was a long and painful process the one thing that made things worth it, was their amazing private roof deck with gorgeous views. They were kind enough to share this space with us a few nights later at sunset to make their engagement shots even more meaningful.
Before the madness of renovating this story began with this adorable couple meeting during senior week of college, after being assigned the same group by a mutual acquaintance. Fast forward to June 2013 to a family vacation in Santa Rosa Beach, FL. Patrick had been planning a time during the week to ask Amanda's father's permission to marry her, but the right moment didn't come until the end of the week. The day before they were set to come home, Patrick somehow convinced Amanda that a run in the 90 degree humidity was a great idea! She was not thrilled with that notion, but afterwards he asked if she wanted to take a walk on the beach to cool down. Just a short distance down the beach he got down on one knee and proposed! She was completely surprised and of course ecstatic! They can't wait to marry each other, but most exciting to them is their location. They love spending summer weekends in Rhode Island at the beach and were able to find the perfect locations. St. Mary's Church in Bristol, RI and the Newport Officer's Club in Newport for their reception with DJ MaShane getting the party going with the music! We can't wait to see the images we will be able to create on your Wedding Day!
For the engagement session, they were going for a casual, yet preppy look which reminds them of summer and the beach, especially NEWPORT! On their overall engagement photo experience they had this to say, "The experience was awesome and went better than we both expected! It was the first time either of us had gotten professional photos taken so we weren't quite sure what to expect. You guys made us feel more at ease and before we knew it the shoot was over!".
That is always our goal, for you to forget the pressure of taking the photos and use this time to get to know us as your photographers and just have fun and celebrate your engagement together before the craziness of your big day! Now you guys will be pros for your Wedding Photos! We can't wait....we hope you enjoy your sneak peek! :)
