Janelle and Julian's Narragansett Engagement Session | Rhode Island Wedding Photographer


When I met Janelle and Julian, I felt like we already knew each other. We met on the campus of URI where they met, grabbing coffee and talking wedding planning as if I had been a part of the process all along. While we wandered the campus and neighboring beaches (Narragansett and Scarborough) I could see nostalgia taking effect in the most wonderful way. While Janelle and Julian now live in Boston near me, this is where they met, where they took chances, and where they fell for each other day after day. 

Wandering places like this alongside my couples is not only extremely intimate, but a huge privilege. We literally walked down memory lane, and it was easy for me to see how Janelle and Julian cared for each other, both now and then. We talked about the things they wish they had known, and the things they could never have known. Janelle's smile is infectious, and the way Julian looks at her is enough to make this photographer tear up.

I am so grateful for these two welcoming me into their love story, and I am counting down the days until their wedding in Newport next June!
