ENGAGEMENT | Rhode Island Engagement Session with Elizabeth and Chad

Temple of Music RI engagement session
First location: Temple of Music at Roger Williams Park
Meet Elizabeth and Chad. They are planning their July 2017 wedding at Harbor Lights in Warwick, Rhode Island. Elizabeth and Chad wants to split up their engagement session into two locations: Roger Williams Park and Rocky Point. Elizabeth’s Mom lives right near Rocky Point so she was able to bring their two dogs {Leo and Bailey} over for some photos. Elizabeth and Chad insisted the dogs would be horrible for photos but we got the images we needed on the first try!
Read below to learn more about Elizabeth and Chad and to view their awesome photos!
Q: How did you meet?
A: “We actually met on match.com, but honestly I knew Chad was special on our second date because we went to some duckpin bowling alley and were literally the only people there, and I’m pretty sure they weren’t even playing music.  This bowling alley wasn’t our first choice but it was league night everywhere else  and we were determined to go bowling.   We joke that the bowling alley was something out of an old goosebumps book and that Chad wanted to impress me so he rented it out, but the date was pretty great.  We still laugh about it.”
Q: How did Chad purpose?
A: “Chad proposed on the night of a snow storm by making me dinner. He put together a very thoughtful book with pictures of all the places we have gone together and some of our favorite memories.  He also included pictures of our two dogs, at the end it said “will you marry me”.  He teases me because he says I just said yes before he could actually say the words.”
Q: What did you learn during your engagement session that will be helpful on the wedding day?
A: “This is cliché, but just have fun! Don’t wear shoes that are too high, and make sure you’re comfortable and relaxed.  I’d say some of our better pictures happened after we relaxed.”
Q: What did you learn about us during your engagement session?
A: “We learned that you and Paul are easy to work with and are very accommodating in regards to setting, suggestions, what we wanted etc. also you are easy to get along with and have a conversation with.”
Q: Any tips you can give other engaged couples who are looking to hire a wedding photographer for their event?
A: “Make sure you feel comfortable with the person you’re choosing because you might not like a photographers personality just because your friends do. Go meet the photographer and get a feel for them.”
