Samantha + Travis’ Engagement Session

Can’t decide on where to have your engagement session? Flowers? Beach? Mansion? There is a perfect gem of a spot located on Long Island Sound in Waterford, CT called Harkness Memorial State Park! This park has panoramic views of Long Island Sound, an elegant summer mansion of the Harkness family that is set on over 230 seaside acres of sweeping lawns, with stately trees and spectacular gardens. Making it the perfect location to fit all of your dreams!

Samantha & Travis are a beautiful couple and they decided to have a late summer engagement session at Harkness Memorial State Park. Having it at Harkness at the end of summer means flowers, and cooler sunset weather. So Samantha was able to wear cute dresses, and then change into jeans! Sounds like the perfect outfit combination if you ask me! 

Congrats Samantha & Travis!!

No matter what the season you choose, your engagement session will always be beautiful, creative, and 100% uniquely yours! This is the time to celebrate and capture your love for one another.

Christina + Bill’s Engagement Session

Did somebody say wine? Would you ever think to have your engagement session at a vineyard? If you love wine and vineyards, Connecticut has more than 40 wineries to choose from!! Gouveia Vineyards in Wallingford, CT is one of our favorite wineries to photograph at! This winery is located atop 140 sun-kissed acres. Built of stone and old timbers and has panoramic views of woodlands, open fields, and over 32 acres of flawless vineyards, making it one of the most perfect backdrops for photographs.

How beautiful and unique is this engagement session at Gouveia Vineyards? Christina & Bill had a perfect summer day in August for their mini engagement session. We were able to capture some really romantic moments between them. They were fun, relaxed, and easy to pose and you could really tell this couple has so much love for each other. And it’s always such a blast to incorporate a location that is unique to each couple!

Congratulations Christina & Bill!! We can’t wait to photograph your wedding next July!!

Jackie + Joe’s Engagement Session

What type of location comes to mind when you think of the word “fancy”? Mansions of course! So when engaged couple Jackie & Joe came to me wanting a “GLAM” engagement session to set the tone for their black tie upcoming wedding, I immediately thought of Wadsworth Mansion in Middletown, CT.  A nineteenth century Beaux Art style mansion, is the quintessential country estate. Graced by expansive lawns and surrounded by 103 acres of wooded parklands the Mansion reflects an era of grandeur and elegance. It was the perfect backdrop for Jackie & Joe’s dream engagement session.

Elegant. Classy. Glamorous. Romantic. Those are just a few words that describe Jackie and Joe’s engagement session at Wadsworth Mansion. They had an absolute blast and we made them feel like a king and queen of the day!! They were so easy to pose and I especially loved the sassy and sexy shots of them! There is so much love between these two and it was beautiful to see! 

Congrats Jackie & Joe!! You had such a beautifully glam engagement session, we can’t wait to see how gorgeous & classy your wedding will be next July! 

No matter what the season you choose, your engagement session will always be beautiful, creative, and 100% uniquely yours! This is the time to celebrate and capture your love for one another. Let’s set up a time to chat, and dream about your glamorous engagement session!

Erica + Glenn’s Engagement at Harkness Memorial State Park

All I can say is, “Wow”.

I couldn’t be happier with the way Erica and Glenn’s engagement shoot came out. They are absolutely stunning.

Let me know what you think.

Becky + Michael’s Engagement at Harkness Memorial State Park

Becky and Michael are such a cute couple, aren’t they? They look really good together. ::lol::

We met up at Harkness Memorial State Park in Niantic. We hit it off really well and got to talking about a lot of things, which is always great.

We started off by a rock wall and then moved to several of our favorite spots. But when Becky changed into her dress…. oh my. Boy did we see some creative shots to take. All in all, a lot of fun and energy!! Take a peak and let me know what you think.

Is this a spot you’d like to go to, yourself? Leave me a comment below.
