Waveny Park Engagement | Kim & Andrew

Published in Engagements
Going off to college is a time that is full of excitement and definitely marks a new chapter in someone's life. It is a time of new beginnings - new classes, new friends, new surroundings. When Kim went off to college, she had all of these expectations, but one thing it's safe to say she didn't expected was meeting her future husband right away! But as fate would have it, that's just what happened. Kim and Andrew met in the psychology class they had together freshman year and have been together since!  
 
Being around them you can't help feel the unique chemistry these two have and how much they compliment one another. And it's no secret they have a shared love for Martha's Vineyard, lobster rolls and their adorable pup Lucy. So it was only fitting that on one of their trips to Martha's Vineyard, Andrew proposed to Kim on a beautiful private beach!  
 
I loved spending every minute with these two during their engagement session at Waveny Park! Can't wait for their wedding next year!

Harkness Park Beach Engagement | Kim & Mike

Published in Engagements
It was the forth of July that will always be the best one there ever was... ever. Kim and Mike were at a family friends annual July 4th party, enjoying the company of friends and taking in the warm summer air. Mike's heart was racing though, and his mind was focused on what would be the main event that evening... and it wasn't going to be the firework display! Taking Kim's hand they decided to break away from the party and go for a walk along the beach. It was the very beach they had had their "unofficial" first date and that day just so happen to mark their five year anniversary. Mike held her hand and spoke from his heart about how much he loved her and wanted to spend all his days with her. And then, right there on that special beach, Mike got down on one knee and asked Kim to marry him! Fireworks started going off instantly... no really they did! They lit up the sky and sparkled in celebration as the two embraced! 
 
I had so much fun spending time with Mike and Kim and their adorable pup Dexter during their beautiful engagement session! They are the kind of fun-loving couple that is up for anything and down for whatever. Being around Mike and Kim just makes you wonder how two people so perfectly matched actually found one another in the billions of people in the world. They are such a fun and sweet couple and I cannot even wait until their destination, which I know will be epic!

Gouveia Vineyards Engagement | Ashley & Lou

Published in Engagements
What happened in Vegas didn't stay in Vegas. I mean how could it when it involved a gorgeous diamond ring and two people head over heels for one another getting engaged?! That's right, Lou asked Ashley to make him the happiest man in the world and marry him on the first night of their vacation in Vegas this past November!! What a way to kick off a celebratory vacation! And you can only imagine my excitement when Ashley contacted me when they got home later that week to share the awesome news and book their engagement session! I couldn't wait! 
 
So to be honest, I don't think I can quite begin to explain the connection and chemistry between Ashley and Lou without sounding like a complete cheeseball! But these two, they have something so special and uniquely their own. I think they could vacuum or rake leaves together and have a ball just because they are together. My face hurt from laughing so hard with these two during their engagement session at the gorgeous Gouveia Vineyards! Lou claimed to know exactly the right things to say to Ashley and Ashley's response was a pointed finger and a "you... oh you!" They are just so much fun to be around! 
 
These are some of my favorites from their engagement session!

SNEAK PEEK: CT Vineyard Engagement

Published in Engagements
One of my favorite places in Connecticut to photograph an engagement session is here. Right here. The rolling hills, vineyard vines and that LIGHT just never seem to disappoint. I had ridiculous amount of fun laughing and photographing Ashley and Lou and I can't wait to share more from their engagement session TOMORROW! But until then, here is a little peek! :)

NYC Highline Engagement | Joanna & John

Published in Engagements
Every year Joanna and John go to the wine and food festival in New York City together. How awesome is that? Now that is an annual tradition I could totally get into - so fun! It was something they looked forward to every single year starting the moment they left the festival each year. And last year would be a year they would never forget - their favorite time at the festival. Ever. 
 
Before going in and tasting and sampling the all the yummy food and drink, they decided to walk along the Highline and take in some of the sights and sounds of the city. Hand in hand they walked to the very spot where John knew he wanted to propose. It was at the very end of the Highland, at an area with beautiful gardens sponsored by none other then Tiffany & Co. The two of them sat on a bench and just as John began to pour out his heart to Joanna with the intention to propose right then and there, an unknowing tourist came down and sat down right next to them on the bench... and proceeded to take selfies!!! So, John continued to tell Joanna how much she meant to him... how much he cared for her. He continued to pour out his feelings and he was beginning to hear his heartbeat in his ears his heart was racing so fast as he tried to stall a little!! To John's relief, eventually the tourist got up and walked away and John ceased the opportunity to ask Joanna if she would spend the rest of her life with him! He put the most gorgeous Tiffany & Co diamond sparkler on her finger and the two jut couldn't contain their happiness! They enjoyed the festival that year like they hadn't before! With amazing wine and some of the most exquisite food, the festival felt like a party and celebration just for them!
