Newport, RI Engagement | Haley & Greg

December 21, 2017

When we were asked to photograph Haley & Greg’s session in Newport, our hearts swelled!  Winery, Beautiful Beaches, Historical Mansions along the coastline, what is there not to love?!

The love story of Haley & Greg begins on the grounds of their alma mater, Connecticut College. It was fall of 2007 when Greg was awestruck in the midst of a dorm party as he noticed a gorgeous brunette in a stunning red shirt… He remarked to his friend that he had to introduce himself… the rest, as they say, is history.

They became fast friends; studying, partying, watching the Chili Peppers at Slain Castle on repeat and playing cribbage; until their Junior year when they realized that there was more than just a friendship between them.  They started dating after a Spring Break trip to Puerto Rico, and moved to Boston after graduation.

Two years later Haley moved down to Providence, RI to start her Ph.D. at Brown. Greg followed one year after that and they moved in together. In their down time they travelled the country, hiking, skiing, exploring and falling more in love despite their subtle differences, like Greg’s distaste for vegetables & cardiovascular exercises and Haley’s objection to naps & lazy Sundays.

The two were ready to take the next step, so after countless months of begging and flooding Greg’s inbox with pictures of puppies, Greg finally gave in to Haley and the two brought home a golden retriever, Brady. B made their apartment a home and on her 2nd birthday during a walk at Chase Farm, Greg asked Haley to marry him!

Alisha knocked it out of the park with this beautiful engagement session.   Which part did you love the most? Winery or Coastline?!
