Fairfield County Engagement | Alyssa & Mike

Published in Engagements
For Mike it felt like that gorgeous diamond ring was b u r n i n g a hole in his pocket from the moment he picked it up! He couldn't WAIT to give it to Alyssa and ask her that beautiful question, "will you marry me?!" So later on the very day he picked up the amazing sparker he got down on one knee and asked the love of his life to spend forever with him!  
 
The thing about Mike and Alyssa is that you can't help but just feel their energy and have a constant smile on your face just being around them. Like for real. My face literally hurt from smiling and laughing so much from hanging out with them during their engagement session! Their happiness is truly refreshing and oh so sweet. They are so excited to just be with one another regardless of what they are doing, whether its going to their beloved Cheesecake Factory and getting lost in the menu or finding and exploring a new part of town, together is their favorite part!  
 
You guyyssss their wedding this winter is going to be amazing - we feel so luck to be the ones who get to document it!! I met Alyssa years ago when she was a bridesmaid in one of our couple's wedding and hoped one day I would get to photograph her wedding! Ah can't wait! Here are a few of my favs from their engagement session last week!

Connecticut Newborn Session Baby Ella

It seems like just yesterday Kelly and Tim were newly engaged and we were at Tod's Point Beach in Greenwich for their engagement session chatting about their wedding plans so far as the sun went down over the water. They sat on the sand drinking rosé as the tide came in (faster then we thought!) There was love, hope, and anticipation for what the future would hold. 
 
There is such an unexplainable joy and honor I feel to meet any couple's sweet new baby, but it's extra special meeting one of our past wedding couple's little one! What an honor it is to step into their quiet little corner of the world and meet the one that changed it completely. There is a vulnerability, a sweet calm and two people that now see everything differently because they are parents. 
 
Baby Ella was hoped for, thought about and loved before she took her very first breath. And now this sweet love is here! Sooo many favorites from her in home newborn session!

Central Park NYC Engagement | Ashley & Patrick

Central Park NYC Engagement | Ashley & Patrick

Published in Engagements
I have to admit, I was all kinds of excited when Ashley and Patrick said they wanted to do their engagement session in Central Park in New York City.... at sunrise. Those early morning hours before all the tourists and the hustle and bustle are just magical. When Chris and I lived there it was probably our favorite time of day in the city. 
 
From the moment we met Ashley and Patrick you could see their chemistry and know that they are soul mates. It's hard to put into words exactly what it was, but I guess that's the beauty of chemistry between two people that are meant for one another - it's kind of indescribable. But it was that chemistry and pull that made the two fall head over heels for one another years ago, and Patrick get on bended knee and propose to Ashley. The two were at the country club that they frequented together and Patrick had arranged the whole thing with lots of planning and coordinating! With views of the beautiful and pristine golf course in the background and their family inside to surprise her and celebrate the exciting news afterwards, Patrick asked Ashley to spend forever with him! Annnnd their wedding is going to be at that very same, and now super sentimental, place next year!  
 
These two are smart, funny, driven, and have the kindest hearts. And boy did we have a blast with them walking around Bethesda Fountain in that early morning golden light. There are not many things that could get us up and excited at 3:30am, but the chance to hang out and photograph these two in our favorite city did just that! 
 
Their wedding next year is going to be ah-mazing and we can hardly wait! It was so hard to pick my favorites to share from their sunrise NYC engagement session, but here are a few!

Rosecliff Mansion Wedding | Janelle & Michael

Published in Weddings
If you ask them to tell you one thing about themselves, it would be that they are, from the bottom of their hearts, so thankful... thankful that God brought them together. And truth be told, if you ask those who know the couple to describe Janelle and Michael, they too would say thankful. The thankfulness for God bringing them together, the joy of marrying their best friend and the excitement of journeying through this life now as husband and wife was evident in every aspect of their wedding day.  
 
Janelle & Michael both went to college in Boston and met six years ago through a mutual friend. Every summer they spend time in one of their favorite places, Newport Rhode Island, so they didn't have to think twice when deciding where to have their wedding festivities. They wed at Our Lady of Mercy at Salve Regina University in an absolutely beautiful ceremony and then danced and dined the night away with their loved ones at one of the breathtaking historic Newport mansions... Rosecliff Mansion. With views of the water dissolving into the sky, hand painted ceilings, marble, gold and crystal detailing, Rosecliff was a perfect setting for their epic champagne popping celebration! 
 
Janelle & Michael - Your incredible wedding was truly an amazing celebration of love, blessings, and joy. The words spoken, the details crafted and the excitement felt were indescribable. We loved meeting your sweet family and friends and WE are immensely thankful that you invited us to be part of your special day! Congrats again to you both!

Fairfield County Newborn Session Baby Rosie

Six and a half years ago our paths first crossed with Annemarie and Brooks when they met with us about photographing their wedding and the engaged couple told us all about their exciting plans for their big day! Five years ago we were honored to document their beautiful wedding at a historic mansion and witness the very first day of their marriage. Last week my heart nearly burst as I met their adorable children, living representations of their marriage and love! It was sweetness upon sweetness to talk to their son about his new baby sister Rosie and get his take on things. The love and kindness that was so apparent when I first met this couple 6.5 years ago manifested in their two little ones and it was a joy to document the beginning of this new chapter as a family of four! :)  
 
I have so many favorites from their newborn session, but here are a few! :)
