ENGAGEMENT | Bookstore Themed Engagement Session with Max and Shannon

Totally in love with this adorable engagement session we photographed last weekend! The couple is planning their vintage {book themed} wedding at Glen Manor House in Portsmouth, Rhode Island for June 7th of next year. The bride loves books and is actually making their wedding invitations out of old books! She brought one to their session and it’s a really nice touch! For save the dates, she is creating a book mark so it sets the tone for their wedding.

The couple selected Cellar Stories which is a rare bookstore located in Providence; it also happen to be her favorite bookshop! We called ahead to see if they were OK with us taking a few photos and they were. We ended up giving them a framed print from their generosity.

See below for some favorites!
