Meet Tara + Ryan

I recently met up with up with Tara and Ryan at the Ocean House at Watch Hill in Westerly RI for their engagement session and, my oh my, this session didn’t disappoint. Between the copious amounts of navy blue sports coats and Sperry top siders on location, and Ryan + Tara who were total pros in front of the camera…this engagement session went down in the books as one of my all-time favorites.

Tara and Ryan are having their wedding at the New Bedford Whaling Museum next year and, with the help of Paula at Marrero Weddings and Events, I know their wedding is going to be off the charts phenomenal.

Meet Tara + Ryan.

I was super lucky to have my main man along with me for this engagement session at the Ocean House at Watch Hill, because when I have him with me he gets images like these two. :)I was super lucky to have my main man along with me for this engagement session at the Ocean House at Watch Hill, because when I have him with me he gets images like these two. 🙂wedding at ocean house at watch hillWe got to the Ocean House at Watch Hill in the knick knack paddy whack of time as the sun was setting perfectly on the horizon over Westerly, RI, which provided some awesome light for Tara and Ryan’s engagement session. engagement at ocean house at watch hillThis was the view from the back porch of the wedding at Ocean House and at watch hill it was absolutely lovely!This was the view from the back porch of the Ocean House and it was absolutely lovely!Westerly RI wedding photographerswedding at ocean house at watch hillAnother great shot by AdamSeriously, could the Ocean House at Watch Hill engagement session be any more beautiful?Seriously, could the Ocean House at Watch Hill be any more beautiful?westerly ri wedding photographersOcean house at watch hill weddingocean house at watch hill picsAs we made our way from the front of the Ocean House at Watch Hill, the sun began giving off this amazing buttery golden light which made their engagement session THAT much more beautifulocean house at watch hill engagement sessionThere literally is no end to the beauty at this venue.
