Milford CT Engagement Session | Heather & Ed

When Heather and Ed told me that they wanted to do their engagement session at Woodmont beach, I was excited! I had been there a long time ago and remembered layers of gray toned rocks and just the wide open water. I mean, what's not to love?! But then when they told me why I loved it that much more. The place held a special place in their hearts. Heather grew up not far from there and as a kid on more days then not, would climb the rocks and play along the water. Summers were spent playing at the shoreline and gazing out across the water at the boats. This little beach really is a kid's dream with so much to explore. 
 
As we walked around Heather would point out the "Potato Rock" and the perfectly named "Umbrella Tree." Now, I thought these were cute little names straight from a child's imagination, but no. No, these are the actual names of these landmarks. And just to prove she hadn't made the names up, a little package arrived at my door a few days ago from Heather. It was a little history book with postcard photos from decades ago of the very beach and these silly named landmarks. It was so cool to step back in time and see what the beach looked like way back then.  
 
Through the storytelling and laughter, I had so much fun spending time with these two... reminiscing about childhood adventures and watching the storm clouds roll in. Here are a few of my favorites from their engagement session and some then and now photos! :)





One of my favorites! You are stunning Heather!




Signal Rock then and now!












The famous Potato Rock. :) This is the old postcard pic of the rock... See it in the next photo? So cool.






The Umbrella Tree that I totally thought Heather had made up the name for! LOL

Mystic Engagement Session | Tiffany & Jeremy

They met in high school and it's safe to say that Tiffany had a huge crush on Jeremy. Like huge. Like she may or may not have kept a photo of him in her backpack huge. It was that kind of huge crush. :) But it was only years later when they both had gotten put of relationships when that crush turned into something more. They ran into one another at a local bar they both love to go to with their friends. The two struck up a conversation that would be the beginning of "them." Now if you ask them who asked for whose phone number first, Tiffany swears Jeremy asked for her number. If you ask Jeremy his eye roll combined with a huge grin and "come on" answer says it all. He says Tiffany asked for his number first. After chatting at the bar that night they hang out again and again and soon became inseparable.  
 
She is clearly head over heels and he is totally and completely smitten. Their Mystic seaport engagement session was so much fun and I was SO excited they brought along their adorable goldendoodle Bentley. The sunset light was golden and downtown Mystic was the perfect spot to hang out and photograph these two! And we started off at a very special place, the restaurant Azu. It's where they had their first date!  
 
Can't wait for their wedding next summer! Here are a few of my favorites from their session!

Brooklyn Bridge Engagement | Diane & Will

The excitement for their wedding day was at an all time high... It was the week before Diane and Will's I Dos when we headed to Brooklyn for their engagement session. Their wedding day was one that overflowed with a love and closeness that could be felt by all those there. During one of the toasts, Diane's uncle said something that spread smiles throughout the room. He said that Will doesn't just love Diane, he adores her. Everyone who was listening knew exactly what he meant. Diane and Will do indeed love one another. But they also simply adore one another. Their love and respect for one another is at the forefront of all they do. They treasure and cherish each other and what they have. They truly know how lucky they are to have the other and it shows in the little moments in between... the hand squeezing, the sweet kissing, and the holding each other close as they sit side by side.  
 
Their Brooklyn Bridge engagement session was full of love from two people who just adore one another. Here are a few of my favorites from their session!

Central Park Conservatory Garden Engagement | Kira & Omari

It was the second night of their trip to Turks & Caicos to celebrate Omari's birthday in mid October. Omari told Kira he had made dinner reservations at 7:30pm, but that was a straight up lie. Their reservations were for much later, but Kira got all dolled up and was ready to go right on time (or so she says!). Once they were both ready for dinner they decided to enjoy some cocktails in their hotel room before heading out. They sat down on their couch next to one another, with not a care in the world and not a place in the world they would rather be then right there. Omari told Kira he had written a poem for her to thank you for planning such an awesome trip for his birthday. That's right, he writes poetry and can cook a killer chicken parm and she plans amazing trips for them to go on. I know. They both totally hit the jackpot! :) Omari began reading what he wrote but about three lines in she quickly realized it was not a thank you poem! He then got on one knee and proposed to the love of his life! On cloud nine, the two headed out for an amazing celebratory dinner, and wouldn't you know their table had menus with their names on them and had one of Kira's favorite lobster dishes made just for her. So incredibly sweet! 
 
Every time I photograph a couple, for me it's more then just posing, good light, and great backgrounds. Although these are important, what's super important to me is capturing the couple's chemistry and their beauty of their love. The candid in between moments. And what an amazing time I had doing just that during Omari and Kira's NYC engagement session at the beautiful Central Park Conservatory Garden... The beautiful garden where Omari's parents wed years ago! So excited for their wedding this spring!  



Complete gorgeousness!









GAH! Just love this one!





FAVORITE!





Champagne picnic complete with a vintage gramophone in the middle of the garden lawn?! LOVE.

CT Beach Engagement Session | Bianca & Mike

When Bianca and Mike first mentioned they wanted to do their engagement session at Bianca's family house at the beach, I have to say I was super excited! I love photographing couples at unique and special locations and I'm totally a sucker for the beach. And let me tell you, the location did not disappoint! Some of the kids that lived in the houses next door said hi to the three of us as we walked by and told Bianca how beautiful she looked. Neighbors waved as they strolled by on the sandy shore. Sunshine poured over the water and the flags on the houses lining the beach blew in the warm breeze. Their family smiled and took in the view of the water as they sat together on the porch. It was breath taking. And then as if it couldn't get better, there was Floyd. He stole my heart within the first five seconds of meeting him. Floyd, their golden doodle, was beyond adorable and clearly loved being at the beach!  
 
Bianca and Mike are one of those couples that appreciate the small things: sunshine, kisses from Floyd, holding hands, and walking along the water. But they appreciate the big things just the same: one another, their families, friends, the love that surrounds them. During their engagement session, I felt like I was photographing them celebrating all of these things. They were so in love and truly happy. Happy with today, and excited for what this next chapter holds for them!
