Mystic Seaport Winter Engagement | Alexis & Ian

Published in Engagements
Before they even saw it, other people did. They saw their chemistry, the spark and just knew Alexis and Ian had something so very special. And boy were they right - their friendship bloomed into a beautiful romance and these two fell head over heels for one another. So when Ian proposed to Alexis, before he could even get the question out, Alexis said "YES!"  
 
Before Ian headed to his hometown in Ireland, we planned to do their engagement session at the seaport in Mystic which is seriously beautiful any time of year! The clear water, the old drawbridge and seagulls flying overhead make you feel like you stepped into a beautiful painting. But let me tell you, I am not even going to pretend this wintery February day at the seaport wasn't fah-reezing. Like finger numbing cold! However being around these two, hearing them reminisce about how they met and watching them having fun and laughing with one another, I didn't really notice the cold! And you would never know how cold it was looking at the two of them! They are such a sweet and fun loving couple, and I know their vineyard wedding next year is going to be one for the books! I can't wait! 
 
Here are some of my favorites from their seaport engagement session!

Fairfield County Fall Engagement | Tiffany & Bradley

Published in Engagements
Each year that cold crisp New England air and bright gray skies mark that December has arrived to Connecticut and so has the time for the tradition they look forward to every single year. It was that time last year when Brad and Tiffany and their adorable Goldendoodle Nashville set out with their family to find the perfect Christmas tree. All bundled up they walked through the rows of trees and took in the beautiful views from the hills of the tree farm. The sweet scent of evergreen was a welcomed memory from the years before and finding THE tree. But this time, the annual tradition was going to be different and one they would remember for the rest of their lives. Right there with views that stretched for miles, all bundled up in scarves, boots and gloves, Brad declared that he had found THE one that was his best friend, his other half, his forever. The one he wanted to grow old with and couldn't live without. And right there and then he proposed and surprised the love of his life Tiffany with a gorgeous diamond sparkler! Tiffany was shocked to see her long time love and best friend on one knee asking for her heart forever. Pure indescribable happiness and joy! Their annual tradition of cutting down their Christmas tree would now be even more sentimental, special and cherished! We are so looking forward to their wedding next fall - caaaan't wait! 
 
You guys, can we just all agree that their pup Nashville is beyond adorable?! I mean seriously. Oh my goodness and he is so sweet! Here are some favorites from their recent fall engagement session! :)

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!

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!

Fairfield County Engagement | Courtney & Chris

Published in Engagements
How they met and fell in love has all the makings of an award winning blockbuster... The Notebook can move on over! Chris' family was dinning at Il Palio, which happened to be the Italian restaurant where Courtney worked as the hostess. Not even in her wildest dreams would Courtney have imagined that a passing comment to her friend who was a waitress result in some matching making occurring shortly there after! Courtney mentioned she thought the guy dining with his family and relatives there in the restaurant that evening was cute. Wouldn't you know somehow the family got word as they exited and raved about how amazing that cute guy, Chris, was. Chris had already left the restaurant when his family worked their match making skills and asked Courtney for her number to pass along to Chris. Now Courtney didn't think anything would honestly become of it and definitely did not think that Chris would actually call her, buuuut a few days later she got a call from that cute guy. Truth be told, Chris hadn't even seen Courtney that day at the restaurant so he went on blind faith when his family raved about the sweet and gorgeous hostess and gave her a call! The two ended up going out on a date and the rest is history! End scene... and the beginning of the next! This duo is set to tie the knot next spring and ohhhh we are beyond excited! We adore this couple and love every single time we get to photograph a wedding in their sweet family! :)  
 
Loved hanging out with these two while they were here in town from Alabama for her cousin's wedding (coming to the blog this week too)! Here are a few of my favs from their engagement session!
