Beach Photos

"No matter where you travel, you will never be able to shake the sand out of your flip flops, nor the ocean from your soul...." -anonymous

Mr. Newport wanted to get some shots on the beach. Not just any beach, but the beach where he proposed. It is beautiful, romantic and secluded which helped since we didn't have to work around people on the beach. It was practically empty.
This wasn't by coincidence. We actually planned our shoot around Newport's busy schedule.I went online and looked up all upcoming events on the Go Newport* calendar, I then checked Salve's graduation date, Salve's summer session start date, and then we had a one week time frame to get the photos in! We chose May for the lack of students and the lack of tourists, which left us with excatly one week to get the photos without the hassle. The beach was pretty secluded, no tourists yet!

Did you plan the timing of your engagement shoot around other events?

*Go Newport is a website that gives tourist information related to Newport, RI. The calendar gives information on everything from events like the Boat Show, Restaurant Week, to plays in the area. It is a great resource, if you plan to visit

Very pretty pictures!!!

We planned our engagement shoot around when the leaves were going to turn at the college that we met at. We had a two week window of opportunity!

These are so great! I'd love to do shots on the beach but we don't have a beach that means a lot to both of us! Maybe I should get off the couch more. Maybe.
