Quintessential Summer Beach Engagement Session

July 29, 2016

Dreaming of the quintessential summer beach engagement session? Then meet us at Third Beach in Newport {well actually Middletown} at about 7 pm on a July evening and this is what you’ll get…

Of course, you’re going to need the right outfits. I love Amelia’s breezy gauzy white dress and Tim’s baby blue shirt to match those blue eyes. Perfect!

So the beach portrait… here’s my thoughts on that… the beach itself is kind of boring. Flat sand, flat water, flat horizon… not much of interest going on there. That is why I LOVE a spot like Third Beach as an alternative. Tall beach grasses, rickety fencing, shabby little cabana buildings, meandering paths, marshes… the textures, colors, and quality of light is just so dreamy. We barely stepped foot on the beach because all of the interesting stuff is happening around the parking lot and on the side of the road!

Amelia and Tim were adorable. They drove from CT for their engagement session so I was so happy they were rewarded with this perfect summer evening. Amelia doesn’t love to be picked up, but she was willing to give it a go because she trusts the Snap Girls. Besides, when you have a nice, tall, strong fella like Tim why not? Getting a little lift now in then makes you feel very extra girly!

P.S. We have a trick for picture perfect lift and kiss moments- we’ll teach you! Tim didn’t need much instruction, he’s got it down!

Amelia and Tim- We hope you enjoyed your romantic rendezvous with us at Third Beach. You were fabulous subjects and we can’t wait for your wedding next month! I’m crossing my fingers for another evening like this. We’ll have a different kind of white dress and {lucky for all the girls} those blue eyes will be there too! XOXO Mariah and Trish

    We had the best time at our engagement shoot!! I get nervous in front of the camera but Mariah and Trish made me feel so comfortable. Not only did we have a ton of fun, but the pictures came out better than I could have ever imagined! So excited to have them “do their thing” at the wedding and see how they use their amazing creativity and talent to capture our special day 🙂
