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.

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.
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.
