I met Aurora and Tim down at the Cliff Walk in Newport, RI on a chilly Spring day (I had hoped it would have been warmer!) for their engagement session. They got engaged on New Years and are so excited to celebrate and were such good sports braving the wind, and boy was it windy! During Spring time Newport celebrates Daffodil Days, when the thousands (millions?!) of daffodils bloom all over town. There are lots of festivities (including a rhode race and a doggy parade!) and beauty of viewing the daffodils in bloom. Besides the iconic Cliff Walk, I wanted to take these two to stroll though the Daffys! The field of blooms at Easton's Beach was in full color, bright and cheerful. There are small paths through the field that allow people to walk through them and experience being surrounded by flowers. Congrats Aurora and Tim!
Every Spring I'm forever driving by beautiful pink and white trees blooming all over Rhode Island. Most of them tend to be on the side of the highway or street, which isn't the prime location for photography. So this Spring I made it my mission to find some gorgeous cherry blossom trees and set up an engagement shoot. I drive by Roger Williams Park all the time, and knew it had a Botanical Center and lots of beautiful garden grounds. So I took a ride through and found the Japanese Garden fully blooming! There were plenty of trees and all of them were in full bloom and lovely. Unfortunately they don't last long, so I knew we had to act fast. Thankfully, Sara and Andrew were totally game to dress up in my vision of blush and pastels and have their engagement session among the blooming trees! They were complete naturals in front of the camera as well, and so much fun to walk around the park with. Congrats Sara and Andrew!
