Farm Engagement Session | Stephen + Joel

Where to begin with these two handsome guys. When I first met Stephen at the hair salon I knew right away I wanted to have the opportunity to photograph him one day. His smile is just infectious and his out going personality lights up any room. As sad as I am that he literally moved to Florida the day we took these photos I am super happy he found his soul mate. I will forever miss our fun and hilarious conversations while sitting in his chair getting my hair done. When Stephen called and said lets get some photos done before me move away I was so honored. He left it up to me where we wanted to shoot but with one thing in mind he said I love something with nature and old barn looking buildings. So of course I had the perfect place in mind and it just happened to be right by my studio. One of my favorite places to photograph year round. Some people don’t realize the history in our small town of Canterbury and I kinda like it that way. Its always so quiet and a relaxed atmosphere when I bring my clients here to shoot. Next time I get to see these handsome guys will be for their wedding day. Now hurry up you too and get to planning that big day!!

Buttonwood Farms Surprise Proposal | Conor & Becca

When I first got the call from Conor with his plan to pop the question to Becca and he wanted to do it on the first day of Buttonwood Farms Sunflower for Wishes. I was over the moon with excitement. I mean who doesn't want to be a part of something like this. Sharing this very special time with Becca and Conor was so much fun. You can just see how much love they have for one another. Before leaving them I felt like I was an old friend. The best and most favorite part of our portrait session was when they decided they had to take a photo in front of the cows because Becca is going to be a large bread vet. Well little did we know that one of the cows was going to become the focus in the background and photo bomb them. It was so great and perfect timing. So earlier in the week Conor and I made the perfect plan on google maps. lol Best thing ever when your planning something from several states away. Conor told me he would be flying in the night before the big proposal so I would go there a few days before and check out the lay of the land. We were able to walk the route he would eventually take Becca on that Saturday morning. It was a gorgeous day. The two of them walking through the path enjoying all the beautiful sunflowers which by the way is Becca's favorite and then right before they reached the end of the walking path he turned her and dropped to one knee. Instantly Becca burst into tears with excitement. It was simply magical and I couldn't hold back my tears watching it all unfold before my eyes. He picked out the perfect ring for his sweet bride to be and she LOVES it. Thank you again Conor for choosing me to create these beautiful life long memories for you and Becca to cherish for years to come.

Denison Homestead Engagement Session | Nicole & Dylan

So when Nicole told me we had to plan her an Dylan's engagement session around his leave I was happy to work them in at a moments notice. The best part was Dylan really really wanted a snow session this winter and low an behold someone was looking out for us. We had a crazy ride that week and got the biggest snow storm of the year here in CT. Thirteen inches fell the day before we were supposed to have Nicole and Dylan's session at the Denison Homestead in Mystic. Let's just say we were all very excited to go play in the snow. I even got so excited for one shot that I almost forgot there was a creek where I was standing being covered by all the snow and literally almost fell in. But I didn't care one bit because the photo I took while falling was purely magic. I want to thank Dylan and Nicole for the sacrifices they make to keep us safe and free. I had so much fun with them during our session that I just know we will have a blast on their wedding day this coming October at The Mohegan Sun golf club. I'm so honored they chose me to be their wedding photographer and can't wait for the big day to get here.

So here are some highlights of us laughing and having a good time in the snow this past February. I even loved that they did the traditional navy kiss while in his dress blues.
