Harkness State Park

Waterford, Connecticut


Meghan and Anthony had their first date at Harkness State Park and so when it came time to choose their engagement shoot location, Harkness State Park was the perfect spot.  Meghan and I spoke before the shoot to get a sense of the lighting she wanted and when I saw a break in the weather we set the date for the most awesome lighting.  Meghan and Anthony did a great job on their shoot and felt very comfortable in front of the camera.  We strolled around the beautiful grounds of Harkness State Park, starting at the mansion to take advantage of brighter light and then working our way down to the beach as the sun set.  I took advantage of the many spots along the way looking for great light and backgrounds.  Meghan was into photography so I'm glad I could put together this large collection of photos capturing the many facets, characteristics moods and styles of light. Light can be a very delicate and subtle thing in its expression of color, tones, highlights, shadows etc. Unfortunately many wedding photographers blow out or overexpose their images washing out the natural colors and extinguishing these beautiful elements of light and photography.  This shoot speaks volumes of the beauty that is found in the intricacies of light and well exposed images. It is a symphony of light's many expressions.
