Our 7 Favorite Engagement Locations (Right Now)

The most common question couples ask me is where to meet for their engagement session. There are so many factors to consider (see this post for more) but I do have a few locations that I always enjoy returning to. Here are my top 7 favorite spots right now.

  1. Nobska Light – This beach is super gorgeous with rocks out in the water and the lighthouse in the background. We can get lovely greenery, stunning views, and pink sunsets on the ocean – totally dreamy for your engagement session!
  2. The Knob – The best of both worlds, this location has a small hike to the point overlooking the ocean. Perfect for couples who love the beach and the woods, and are up for a little adventure.
  3. Bradley Estate – Gosh, this place is a hidden treasure! Pretty gardens surround this brick estate, creating an ideal spot for your classic New England engagement photos. And not far from the Cape or Boston!
  4. Newport Mansions & Cliffwalk – Be sure to wear your walking shoes to this spot, as you will want to explore the entire 3.5 mile walk, although you don’t have to because there are literally breath-taking photo spots all along this path. Mansions and oceanside cliffs make this a super romantic engagement session location!
  5. Bourne Farm – Looking for a rustic barn on Cape Cod? Bourne Farm is the perfect location for your engagement session! Rolling fields and a gray shingled barn are just some of the charms. 
  6. Ocean Edge – For couples looking to have gardens and beach photos, Ocean Edge is a good fit. The architecture totally looks like a fairytale, and there is the most beautiful tree in the front yard. A small (pretty) boardwalk brings you to the ocean for a completely different photo feel. 
  7. Colt State Park – Located in RI, some features of this location are a gorgeous stone bridge, ocean views, as well as plenty of green space to explore.

BONUS – Onset Bay

Okay, full disclosure, this is literally my neighborhood. And oh my goodness, it is PRETTY. It is a great beach location that is *typically* not super busy even in the summer months. Plus, I know all the secret spots. ; )


I totally love exploring new places, too! Let me know if you have a spot that is special to you and your fiance, as that will make your photos even more meaningful. *swoon*
