Gouveia Vineyards, Wallingford, Connecticut


As the summer starts to switch so fall, this is a great time for engagement sessions.  September and October are some of the most popular months for engagement sessions with the cooler weather and of course fall foliage. Finding the perfect place for your engagement session is very important so I meet with clients prior to their shoot to determine the best time and location to fit their personality and style.  Engagement sessions are a great way to get comfortable in front of the camera as well as for us to get to know each other.  My engagements sessions average an hour and their is plenty of time to relax, enjoy, laugh and have a great time away from the pressures of the day and everyday life.  

Devan and William chose Gouveia Vineyards as the perfect engagement session location.  We picked a day with great lighting and weather in early September.  Gouveia Vineyards is an awesome location with many acres of mature grape vines, a pond, neighboring farm and fields with stunning views in all directions and great sunsets to the West.  I used a combination of natural light for the beginning of the shoot and some off camera flash for shots later in the day as the sun was setting. Devan wanted her shoot to incorporate a field and we were able to take some shots toward the end of their session at an adjacent farm.  After the shoot, is a great time to visit the bar and outdoor patio for some great wine and watch the setting sun.   It was a great time Devan and William!!
