I've been lucky enough to travel with several couples to Bristol, RI for their Colt State Park engagement photos. That place is HUGE, and if you haven't been there it's pretty easy to get lost. If you know it well, the vast property is a treasure trove of nooks and crannies - an endless possibility of spots to work from! I tend to stay away from the heavily trafficked footbridge and and instead have my seasonal favorite spots. For a little more peace and quiet, we can schedule your session for a weeknight in the off-season. Heading over in mid-summer will ensure that the park is bustling with people and it may be difficult to find a quiet place.
Being from New England all my life, I am always drawn to stone walls. This one is pretty for sure, but the light that was shining through on just a portion of it grabbed my attention and we worked with it for several minutes. I added a little contrast in post, but the scene was really this dramatic in person. I wanted the couple's faces to be close together, and utilized the wall to even out their heights.
If you love stone walls, or water, or interesting trees and creative spaces, contact the studio and let's schedule your engagement session at Colt State Park!
