New England Beach Engagement | Rachel & Mike
After a stretch of wet weather over the past few days before their session that would make anyone living here on the Connecticut coast feel like they lived in Seattle instead, the day we headed to the beach for their engagement session was perfection. There was a sunset bursting with pastel hues of pink, purple and gold that looked like it was taken right out of a painting and splashed across the sky, seeping into the water below. It was one of those warm summer nights at the beach that you hope never end, but especially when you are hanging out with such a sweet couple and their seriously adorable puppy golden retriever!
Rachel and Mike held hands and walked along the water's edge, letting their toes sink into the sandbar. They left behind a trail of footprints that would soon be erased by the incoming tide. Watching them, you can't help but smile seeing how these two best friends are clearly the love of each other's lives. As they leaned into one another they were full of smiles as they soaked in the quiet moments of just being together. The anticipation and excitement for the promise they will be making on their wedding day swirled in the air and floated up into the painting above. What a joy it was to spend time with these two and their insanely cute pup Reese!
Here are a few of my favorites from their summer beach engagement session!
