Providence, Rhode Island Engagement Session // Sarah + Gabe

Ahhhh Sarah and Gabe! The power couple! It’s so crazy to have known someone as “my friend’s little sister” and see her grow up and fall into a relationship with someone that winds up being their soulmate. I have known Sarah and Gabe for an eternity (or like…9 years). They’ve always been a package deal, completely and totally suited for eachother. I can’t imagine them with anyone else. I was SO thrilled when they got engaged while on vacation in the Bahamas and even more ecstatic when they asked me to be their photographer. Of course, it’s always an honor to be chosen as a wedding photographer - it’s such a huge day! But it’s something a little more special when friends choose you to be such a massive part of their day.

Sarah and Gabe chose the heart of Providence, Rhode Island for the backdrop to their engagement photos. Waterplace Park is THE place to be on a summer night on the city. It’s the site of Waterfire, a summertime event that is a staple of Rhode Island. Every other time of the year, it’s a surprisingly secluded, peaceful place just to take a walk. You can wander around the bridges, watch some ducks, and in the instance of this Saturday afternoon, a group of teenagers attempting some kind of parkour. Something for everyone! In fact, this is site of my first ever engagement session.

I can’t even tell you how excited I am to document Sarah and Gabe’s wedding. August can’t come soon enough!
