Couples and engagement sessions in Newport
YAY! You found your special person to love! Book a couples and engagement session in Newport to celebrate your victory! Most couples book a photography session to remember a special time together. However, they also book for more practical reasons. Many couples need pictures for “save the date” cards, wedding announcements in the media, and a wedding website. An engagement session is also a good time to “try” a photographer before the wedding day.
Couples and engagement in Newport FAQ
Where should we take the pictures?
You have a few choices here. I am a huge fan of backdrops in nature for couples and engagement sessions in Newport. Some couples have an idea of where they want to go. Communicate to me if you have a sentimental location in mind. Some couples need an “activity” to feel comfortable. Make a list of things you like to do together and we can come up with a location idea from that. View my list of Favorite Photography Locations in Rhode Island.
What should we wear?
Couples should wear something that they’d wear on a date night. You want to look your best, but you also want to look like yourselves! Of course, you could wear a suit and formal attire if that’s your style or if you want formal looking images.
Will you pose us?
Yes! I will “pose” you. However, my goal will be to get you to interact naturally. I’ll use silly prompts and guide you to place your bodies in flattering positions. We will do a lot of walking around absorbing the atmosphere and each other’s company. It should be casual and fun. If you need an “activity”, we can plan a trip to a coffee shop, bookstore, record shop, or ice cream parlor. The options are limitless! Just have fun with it. You like each other!
What should we bring to our couples session?
You should travel light! If you want to bring your dog or child, have someone tag along who could be a handler. Most of the images are going to be just the two of you. If you want to include a prop, let me know. We can get the prop shot first and move quickly to the other stuff. Let’s focus your couples and engagement session in Newport on you!
Should I get my hair and makeup done?
Your couples session should be a reflection of you. I’m a fan of you showing up as you would on a date night. If you need a little help, I am more than happy to be of assistance. A full-glam session is not necessary for an engagement or couples session. However, I do recommend you glam it up if you are taking pictures in formal attire. Also, some brides double dip their engagement shoot with their trial run hair and makeup.
