Engagement sessions are such a beautiful thing. They are a great way for me as the photographer to get to know the couples I work with before their wedding day. In a relaxed and intimate environment we have the chance to get comfortable with each other and being in front of the camera which for some people can be intimidating.
Starting my career as a landscape and nature photographer and travelling extensively throughout Connecticut provided me with a knowledge and familiarity
with Connecticut's many beautiful state parks and scenic areas. Plus, free engagement session planning is included in all my sessions. I discuss with my couples the style and type of engagement session they want and offer suggestions and guidance on suitable locations. Erin and Mike wanted a more wooded feel for their engagement session so shared photos from a few locations and they decided on this one, Kettletown State Park. I chose a time in the late afternoon during the "golden hour" when the lighting was perfect. I really love spending this relaxed time with my couples where they can be in the moment and enjoy their time together. Because this together time is so important, I allocate an hour for all my engagement shoots and include varied terrain, backgrounds and areas within a local to provide a diverse collection of photos. I provide over 50 edited high resolution photos per session with printing rights as well as an online gallery. Let's take a journey with Erin and Mike on their engagement session.
