Meadow and Mike's Engagement Session-Harkness State Park, Waterford, Connecticut

June 14, 2021


Harkness State Park, Waterford, Connecticut


Harkness State Park is one of my favorite places to do engagement sessions.  The interplay of light that occurs there is magnificent. Also the wide variety of settings and scenes makes for a smorgasbord of photo opportunities and backgrounds.  As you know, photography is so much about light.  Meadow and Mike's engagement session was a great example of the many varied ways of lighting in photography.  Their session took place during the golden hour so we took advantage of that in many of the photos with back and side lighting to create highlights and rim lights around Meadow and Mike. Engagement sessions are all about fun and love and Meadow and Mike brought that with them plus their enthusiasm to make their engagement session over the top!!  We had a wonderful time together strolling through the gardens, and exploring the beautiful architecture at Harkness.  For the later part of their session we went down to the beach and took advantage of the golden hour lighting and subtle colors of sunset.  Fantastic job Meadow and Mike.  I really commend you on your enthusiasm, playfulness and love that all came together for stunning engagement session.  Looking forward to your wedding day so we can do it again.
