When I first met Gily at a bridal show she just had this glow about her. I knew she had a deep love for Justin after our conversation and I couldn’t wait to hear from her to discuss the wedding plans. When we picked to have their engagement session in down town Mystic I knew right were I wanted to start out. The boat docks by Red 66 are always so full of gorgeous light and then making our way over to the iconic bridge that had the words Mystic printed the light got even more gorgeous. Between the three of us I don’t think we stopped laughing at all the entire time. Gily really wanted a light house in the background so we headed over to stonington which is another fun scenic spot with old history in Connecticut. We played around the light house and made even more gorgeous memories for this sweet couple. They were total naturals in front of the camera and I can’t even believe their wedding is in 2 weeks. I am so beyond excited for them and I can not wait to have just as much fun at their wedding as we did doing this session.

This Harkness engagement sessions love story started at a friends bbq back in 2013. That would set the seen for Colleen and Matt to start dating and now they are building their life together a day at a time. When I asked about the proposal I kinda melted with pure excitement when I heard the story. Imagine your sitting in a nice restaurant in Dublin Ireland. Yes you read that correct they were on a trip to Dublin Ireland. This is so on my bucket list of places I want to visit in my lifetime. It was the very first night on their trip and Matt was treating Colleen to a super romantic fancy dinner at The Bank Restaurant. While eating dessert, they were talking about their future, and how excited they were for their move and and the future. That’s when Matt grabs the ring from his jacket pocket, gets down on 1 knee and proposes. I am a desert girl and I of course wanted to know what was for desert and hello what a romantic man Matt is. I don’t even think I would be able to eat my desert after that because I would be full of excitement so I hope he at least let Colleen eat a little before dropping to one knee. I can see it all over his face the way he looks at her that she is his everything. I can’t wait for their wedding to finally get here already. June seems so far away yet so close.
After our first date was completely rained out I was so excited for the gorgeous light we had for Sarah and Jim's engagement session at Harkness Memorial State Park. I could not have asked for a better fall sunset filled with gorgeous colors and a beautiful couple. One thing I always love when my couples show up with a personal prop that mean so much to them. When Jim told me he brought his family guitar I jumped with excitement and knew just what I wanted to use for the ring shot. These two are naturals in front of the camera and it truly showed during their session. We had a blast together. This engagement session was filled with lots of laughter. Sarah & Jim are so in love and it really shows how much they care for each other. I can not wait to photograph their gorgeous fall wedding next September. If its any indication of how much they care for one another I can only imagine the day will be filled with so much laughter but also tears of joy.
