A Twilight Engagement: Scott + Sara

Sarah McClutchy and Scott Buchanan are a perfect match. As longstanding friends (since high school) I joked they were high school sweet hearts. Both lovers of the outdoors…Scott is an environmental scientist and herpetologist, it was a natural choice to shoot outside. Though they had hoped for snow, the adorable couple braved frigid temps during this December twilight engagement shoot at Sachuest Point in Middletown, RI.

With a few clothing options in tow, Sarah and Scot were able to quickly switch their ensembles to accommodate the weather and vary the look and feel of their photos, from cozy to a bit more formal.

Anchored in Pink - RI's Lilly Pulitzer Signature store

Located down on lower Thames, in Newport, Rhode - Anchored in Pink is Rhode Island's first Lilly Pulitzer Signature store.  Known for it's bright, colorful, floral print wares, Lilly Pulitzer evokes the feeling of summer no matter the season! 

Set on the docks behind famed IYRS at sunset, all the girls and ladies involved were adorned by the season's latest fashions.  

Swartz Family - Glen Park

The Swartz Family of five are a fun and playful bunch!  With a clear picture in mind, mom Emily really wanted to have a farm-like setting to shoot in.  Just short of cows roaming in the background - I think we nailed it.

Although Newport, Rhode Island is known for it’s amazing sunsets on the water, we made a late afternoon trek to Glen Park in Portsmouth to enjoy the new green grass of summer and countryside feel of its bucolic surroundings.
