This past Sunday I met Kait & Andrew at Third Beach to kick off their Newport Engagement Session! When we scheduled the session for mid-April I was a bit nervous - i.e. April showers bring May flowers! - but as I pulled into the parking lot, the breeze was blowing, the sun was out, and the birds were chirping. We couldn't have asked for much more, regardless of the season. After all, this is New England!
As we walked along the beach I got to know Kait & Andrew (my favorite part of engagement sessions - learning people's stories!). These two are HIGH SCHOOL sweethearts! And honestly, that is super impressive and cute to me. I remember who I was in high school and A LOT has changed since then...so I find it so cool that Kait & Andrew have weathered a lot of different life stages and remained in love with each other!
They love Newport and visit often from CT which is why they chose to do a Newport Engagement Session. Kait & Andrew were adorable in their boat shoes and striped top strolling down Third Beach! I love the nautical flair and casualness of this session. These two were nervous in front of the camera at first, but they soon realized how to be themselves and have FUN with it!
As the sun started to set at Third Beach, we raced over to Fort Adams for some more formal shots and breathtaking views of the Newport Pell Bridge at sunset. It was cool by this point but Kait rocked that dress and we grabbed some great shots before the sun set over the sea.
I think Kait & Andrew already have the foundation for a strong marriage - an understanding of compromises, respect for one another, and the recipe for how to make each other laugh! I think that was clear in these images from their Newport Engagement Session!
Can't wait for December 31, 2017 in Newport!
