These two, so so so sweet and so much fun! The way the weather played out (we had to move our first date due to rain) and our schedules, we actually had their engagement on Friday before Christmas Eve. These two met me at Hopkins Vineyard to start their session before heading over to Angevine Farm for the other half! I had a great time playing in the snow on this warm December day. We walked around the vineyard, and caught some beautiful light there. Hannah and Nick really have a great connection that shines through their personalities and during their session. Nick also enjoys cool architecture and buildings so when we arrived at Angevine Farm, Mr. Angevine was able to tell him about the Christmas barn and it’s structure. Such a fun afternoon, can’t wait for their October 2017 wedding in Pennsylvania! 


Melissa & John are a super sweet couple with plenty of things in common with each other! Melissa’s diamond engagement ring is one of the most beautiful and unique rings I have seen yet!  I met them on a beautiful fall morning at Kent Falls. We walked and talked around the park and Melissa has some skills hiking in her fun high heels! When we left Kent Falls, we headed over to my favorite local farm, Angevine Farm, in Warren, CT. It was such a warm, sunny, perfect fall morning to play in a field of Christmas trees! Here are my favorites  from their engagement session, I can’t wait for their Fall 2017 wedding!

These two sweethearts met while studying at UCONN in a class they had together. Their engagement session with me was a peaceful walk around town in Newtown, CT. We started at the iconic Edmond Town Hall where the marble columns and stairs with antique finishes really stand out. We took a walk down main street to the Library. It was important to them to capture some of their engagement session in their UCONN attire since that was where their story started (and would also look great published in the alumni magazine- just saying!). After walking the streets of Newtown, we headed to the overlook on Castle Hill Rd. It is such a peaceful place to take photographs and there is a stunning view of Newtown from the top (this is one of my all-time favorite places in the town I grew up in). Here are my favorites from their session with me, I can’t wait for their December 2016 wedding!

This sweet young lady is super special to me. When her parents would come to CT to visit family and friends her I would babysit her and take her places around CT so she was not always stuck with the adults. I have truly enjoyed watching her grow, and as a 5 year old reading a book to me, I knew she’d be destined for great things in her future. Her whole family is very near and dear to my heart and I could not be more excited to be a part of their wedding day scheduled for 2018!

I met up with Emily and Eric at a Virginia Winery. If you have never experienced Virginia Wine, I suggest you take a trip out there! The scenery and the vineyards are such a great combination!,… and if you didn’t know, the slogan is “Virginia is for WINE lovers”. We started their session with a yummy wine tasting, followed by sipping some champagne as we wandered through the vineyards. The weather could not have been more perfect! Enjoy a few of my favorites from their engagement session with me!
