Block Island Engagement Session

Block Island Engagement Session | RI Engagement Photographer

I first met Mary and Phil at Laura + Mike’s wedding in Cape May last June. I loved meeting Mike and Phil’s family and couldn’t contain my excitement when Mary reached out to me about her own wedding! Getting to photograph other couples from past weddings is one of the highest honors for me. They are two of the sweetest souls I’ve ever met and I’m just thrilled to be sharing their day with their families again. Mary and Phil knew they wanted their photos done at their favorite place in the world, Block Island. I immediately did a happy dance and we started planning their Block Island engagement session!

If you know me, you know I love travel. I have never really explored the New England states so I was super happy to be going to Rhode Island. This is their home away from home. Mary and Phil try to get out here every year to enjoy the quiet island, and I can totally see why. Block Island is a quaint little place off the coast and it’s full of beautiful trails and even more beautiful beaches. During summer, this is quite the destination!

Block Island Locations

bloDuring planning, we narrowed down some of their favorite spots and planned the day out by hopping to each one. We also let the light guide us and we stopped at a few locations we saw along the way. One of their favorite aspects of the island is the Glass Float Project, and Phil actually found a float during this trip! It had been a goal of theirs with every trip but they had no luck in the past. With this being my first time here, I didn’t anticipate finding one of my own. Surprise, I did! There’s so many little quirks to this place, AND some of the best food I’ve ever had

Rebecca somehow made us both relaxed and produced absolute magic! She instructed us while still making the photos look candid, reliably captured our "good sides," and brought her unique eye for lighting and settings (pro tip: do whatever she says even if it seems funny or in a different location; it will look utterly amazing). Photos can be an investment and I'm glad we did the research and found the perfect photographer for us.

"The best (esp if you're awkward in photos)"

- Lauren + Hunter

I can't even put into words how amazing Rebecca is. We knew from the moment our engagement photos began that we made the right choice. She is so professional, charismatic, and excited to be a part of your big day.  I would recommend her over and over again!

"Speechless."

- Bianca + Kyle

Rebecca was such a joy to work with, our experience with her was absolute perfection from beginning to end! Even from our first conversation, I could tell that she genuinely cares about getting to know her clients and what they prioritize and want to capture on the big day. She was always so responsive and available by phone or email, communication was a total breeze. Rebecca is not only incredibly talented, but a wonderful human being, and we loved working with her. I wholeheartedly recommend her to all future brides!

"Rebecca was a dream!"

- Casey + Kofi

It was truly a pleasure working with Rebecca. She is so sweet and easy to work with, we felt so relaxed and comfortable throughout the entire process. Communication is timely, prices are reasonable. She listened to us and did such a perfect job capturing every moment on our special day. And most importantly - the pictures turned out ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!!! I can't recommend her enough.

"Love love love Rebecca!"
