CT Engagement Session at Belltown Hill Orchards.

I had the honor of photographing Erin and Robert’s CT Engagement Session at Belltown Hill Orchards in Glastonbury last weekend.  Since this beautiful couple lives right in the Orchard neighborhood,  they arranged permission with the Orchard owners for us to photograph where no other people were.  Plus, we were able to stay after the picking hours for the golden evening light and had the whole orchard to ourselves.  How special is that?!? If you follow my blog, you may know how much I love photographing CT Engagement Sessions.  Not only do we have beautiful landscapes in every corner of the state, but there is so much variety such as:  farm country, cities, small quaint towns, beaches, and hilly trails and woods. Here are the  4 most important reasons why I love photographing CT Engagement Sessions: 1) Besides the fact that I have been a lifelong resident of this beautiful little state and I know many cool areas and beautiful spots for a CT Engagement Session, this is an important time for my couples and I to get to know each other better.  I learn a lot about them from their session.  For instance, I can see how self-conscious (or not) […]

Engagement Session at Chamard Vineyards & Hammonasset

I spent a lovely evening with Rachel and Mario at Chamard Vineyards in Clinton, CT.  It was a great break from the rain and the heat as the cool breezes at the shore were glorious.  Mario works there so I had a grand tour of the whole place – including the wine cellar!  Check it out if you have not… the smells from the kitchen were yummy and they grow their own herbs and veggies, too.  After the Chamard ‘experience’ we went down to the beach at Hammonasset for the sunset.   It was a great time and I cannot wait to photograph their wedding in August at the Guilford Yacht Club.   I hope you enjoy these photos!

Engagement Session at Gillette Castle

Two extraordinary people, Priya and Andy are planning an August wedding at the Riverhouse at Goodspeed Station in Haddam, CT.  So, for the engagement session, we had a great time exploring the grounds of the Connecticut landmark, Gillette Castle.  I am happy we postponed the first date we set, because the weather could not have been more perfect! The castle has some beautiful light in the evening and when it reflects off the stone of the castle, it is really pretty. Even in B&W there is plenty of interest there.  Thank you Priya and Andy for such a fun afternoon.  I look forward to the wedding coming up soon!
