Nautical Newport Engagement Session with Carla Ten Eyck


Hold on to your hats everyone, and get ready for some chemistry and love and just an overload of handsome! And boats! Big boats, small boats, some champagne and a sunset! And maybe some bourbon…. maybe! When I got the first email from Mike about his upcoming wedding to Michael (yes, Michael + Mike!) I was over the moon. I mean, come on! They are photography lovers, and are dancing the night away at one of the most elegant venues, Castle Hill Inn in Newport Rhode Island! Add to that their love of design and all things beautiful and I am one happy photographer…! OK ok, there’s more..! These two were also so comfortable and easy in front of my camera, it was magical. There is little else any photographer needs than a couple who are so in love and easy together, the locations don’t even matter at that point! But I’ll totally still be fine with working on a yacht, or in a sun drenched seaside town in New England like Newport… I mean – twist my arm!


The owners of The Stoneacre Pantry in Newport were so sweet they let us in before they opened so we had the entire place to ourselves to have one of the best cocktails I have ever had… I mean photographed..! All I know is it had bourbon in it, and it was nice!


The International Yacht Restoration School in Newport was the most stunning location for some portraits, and I got to see up close the renovation of a ginormous boat, Coronet. It was a sight to see!

To say I am excited for your wedding Mike + Michael, is the understatement of the year!! XOXO
