I maybe be biased but I am a little obsessed with this session at Devils Hopyard from this past spring. Erin and Lee nailed it from the perfect outfits to every pose. I mean they are our naturals in front of the camera. You will see more of that when I blog their wedding here soon. I was so excited when I saw her ring because this girl LOVES rings. It was simply beautiful and I must say Lee did a fabulous job picking it out. I just love how they met at the local bar that Erin worked. Lee would come in with his friends for nearly two years before he finally asked this beautiful lady out. I secretly think he had to work up the courage but she gladly excepted and now they get to spend the rest of their lives making memories. He took her out on the greater banks on vacation and during a moonlit stroll he wrapped his arms around her and whispered sweet words into her ear. Little did Erin know what was about to happen when she turned around and he got down on one knee and asked her to spend the rest of her life with him. Its like a fairy tail and I am so honored to be their photographer and I get to share in their love story.

When your couple tells you they want their engagement photos with their favorite sports team on it and they show up with your favorite teams jersey you grin ear to ear with excitement. I mean I didn’t think the session could get any better until mom brought out the most adorable dog ever… He was such a champ and it was like he knew he had to put on a show. I can’t lie I almost wanted to take the little guy home to my kids. Shannon, Andrew and I had so much fun exploring one of my favorite parks together. Harkness Memorial State Park has so many little secret hidden gems around the property that I can shoot there everyday and still manage to find a new fun spot to use. The lighting is always so gorgeous and this day was particularly one of my favorites with this beautiful warm glow we had. I am so excited and can’t wait for Shannon and Andrews wedding which just so happens to be in a short few months. The count down has begun…
Save the date for this super fun loving couple. When Lisa had the idea of having their engagement photos at the same location as Sachin's proposal I got super excited and jumped at the chance. The light is always so amazing in down town Mystic in the winter and I just knew we would create magic. When Lisa showed up with matching coffee mugs that said Love Madly I got was in heaven and they even brought the beautiful sign I sent them with their soon to be new last name. when my brides get creative with their engagement sessions and even bringing the little things to make it their own just melts my heart. We laughed our butts off trying to stay warm with the wind over the water but they were good sports and you would never know how cold it was outside. Their love shined through and made it feel like it was 80 degrees that evening. I just love having fun with my couples and catching those little looks that they give each other when they don't think I am looking or taking a photo because those moments are my true favorite and I just get giddy inside when I catch those. I can't wait to photograph Lisa and Sachin's wedding this fall at the beautiful Bill Miller's Castle. These two are going to light up the night and I just know its going to be an absolute blast to be a part of. Thank you Lisa and Sachin for trusting me to be your photographer.
When I first talked to Nicole and Jadian about their wedding I knew right away they would be a perfect couple for the J.Parsons Photography family. The sweet story about how Jadian proposed in Florida on a sail boat just melted my heart. They were away for vacation and little did Nicole know that he planned it all out. He rented a boat just for the two of them to enjoy all day. It was just them and the captain. We all know how that story ends because surprise they are engaged!!!
It was so great to finally meet them on their last trip up to CT for a venue walk through. It was perfect timing I just happen to have that day off from my crazy wedding season and we planned a fun morning shoot. I promised to keep it short since they were going to have a really long day filled with like a 9 hour drive home back to Pittsburg but I like I always tell my couples its so important for us to meet and have an engagement session so we can get to know each other before the big day.
Knowing that they both love adventures and the outdoors we planned to start the session at The Wadsworth Falls before ending at their wedding venue The Barns at Wesleyan Hills. To our surprise there was the cutest little tree farm across the street from the falls so we of course made a pit stop. I mean who doesn't love some photos with gorgeous Christmas trees. I think my favorite part about the session was right from the start they both seemed to read my mind and know what I was thinking next. Its like they've been doing this forever. They were even brave enough to climb on the wet rocks to get super close to the beautiful falls for one of my very favorites of their session. Jadian was so funny he saw me looking at the little jetty of rocks and before I could even say anything he's like yup we will totally go on that. We finished our morning off at the beautiful barns under the weeping willow trees and even explored the fun tunnel. I just love the variety of images we were able to capture in such a short amount of time. I truly can not wait to celebrate Nicole and Jadian's wedding with them next June! Until then happy wedding planning...

I knew from the moment I first met Jackie and Brian at our consultation that this couple was going to be a blast to work with and I was right. I lost count of how many times we laughed during their engagement session. The light was amazing at Baldwin Brook Farm that night and I probably could have photographed them all night long had the sun not gone down. you can clearly see how much love these two share especially when Brian looks at his beautiful bride to be. He gets this special sparkle in his eye and I think his smile literally goes from ear to ear. Jackie is so bubbly and I just LOVE her. We just seem to get each other and I mean come on anytime one of my brides tells me they just want to eat ribs in their wedding dress on the most important day of their life just makes me happy. I'm a southerner and love ribs. I always drive by these gorgeous spots in my town and when Jackie said she loved the idea of following me around to shoot in my secret spots I got very very excited. It truly makes me happy knowing my couples trust my judgement and are willing to follow me anywhere to make gorgeous photos for them. I am so happy to have the most gorgeous Farm just around the corner from my house with a beautiful brook and covered bridge. Even better the owners are super nice and let me use their gorgeous farm. I can't wait to try out their syrup and eggs.
Thank you again Jackie and Brian for choosing me to be your photographer and I look forward to your wedding next year at Wrights Mill Farm!

What I love most about this adorable couple was watching them interact with one another. I had so much fun at Gouveia Vineyards with Megan an Mike. I can't tell you enough about how perfect of a choice to have their engagement photos at this venue was. Megan good call on using the Gouveia vineyards in the fall. That dock overlooking the water and vineyards was so stunning. I was dying over the gorgeous lighting as always. Thanks for trusting me enough to follow me to a random red barn on the side of the road. Those images turned out magical and I can't stop staring at them. When I first met with Megan & Mike I knew instantly we would be a perfect fit. I mean hello Megan has such a great heart and teaches children for a living. I have a special place in my heart for teachers who work so hard and are way under appreciated for what they do. Also Mike has some amazing taste in sports teams. Who knew that he would love the NY Giants and the NY Rangers as much as my husband does. I know that their wedding at the Webb Barn next year is going to be stunning and such a fun party. Thank you again Megan & Mike for allowing me to take part in this special time in your lives! I had so much fun trekking around the Gouveia Vineyard with you.
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.
