I had the great pleasure of shooting Madeline and Devin's engagement session this Sunday at a beach-side mansion with beautiful botanical gardens. Newport is always a great choice for engagement photos, especially with all the great mansions. They add such a a unique character to the photos and most of the grounds are so expansive that finding awesome items and backgrounds to work with is a no brainer. The child size animal rocking chairs were a personal favorite of mine along with the wooden swing.
We had a great time finding secret nooks on the seaside train tracks. Watching Devin and Madeline was like capturing a moment from bed-knobs and broomsticks, when the main character dances down the train tacks in a dream, combined with a Van Gogh ballerina painting.
The botanical garden animals carved from hedges weren't the only plants that livened up the gardens. We were able to duck into a large grove of bamboo shoots and get up close and personal. It was truly a great day. Truffle Sauce fries in Newport followed by a great shoot! Thanks Madeline and Devin for a great Engagement Shoot in Newport. Can't wait for the wedding in September!
