Sarah and Matthew's Engagement Shoot-Southford Falls State Park, Oxford, Connecticut

Southford Falls State Park

Oxford, Connecticut


I always work with my couples to help pick the perfect location for their engagement session.  Every couple is unique and have different preferences to their shoot.  Some want their session to take place on the beach, some in the forest at a state park, some in an urban center etc.  When I spoke with Sarah and Matthew about their engagement session location Sarah mentioned Matthew wanted to do their session at a waterfall.  Fortunately Connecticut has many waterfall locations. I suggested Southford Falls State Park in Oxford, Connecticut. I directed them to my engagement portfolio which has the location names of engagement session locations   Sarah loved the photos of Southford Falls so we chose that as their location. On the day of their engagement session we were blessed with a nice warm summer day during the week at golden hour when the lighting would be just right.  Sarah and Matt were very comfortable during their shoot in front of the camera.  I took them to some interesting parts of the park including the lower gorge.  Sarah and Matthew laughed a lot and had a lot of fun as well as having time for more intimate moments. The falls were running and that made for lots of great shots with the falls as their backdrop.  Great job Sarah and Matthew.  You crushed it!!

Best choice!!!

"We chose John Munno for our wedding in April 2021, and we just had the pleasure of doing our engagement photos with him at Southford falls. It couldn’t have gone better. We did our shoot on a Thursday and he had over 200 beautiful photos back to us by Saturday afternoon. All our friends and family were extremely impressed by the quality and it’s been tough narrowing it down to just a few pictures for the save the dates.

John did a great job finding good lighting and gorgeous scenery for our pictures and we’re excited to see what he can do for us on our wedding day. Besides for the excellent pictures, one of the best things about him is that he’s been like a mini wedding planner. He has multiple recommendations for DJs, florists, and more. He’s also been very helpful planning out the timeline for getting ready and taking photos on our wedding day. Overall, he’s been fun and fantastic to work with. He seems like an awesome, genuine guy and you can tell he puts a lot of thought and care into his work. I would recommend him to anyone."  Sarah L
