I loved photographing this gorgeous couple’s Engagement Session on the Storrs Campus at UCONN. The UCONN campus is a park, a botanical garden, full of new and old architecture and a working farm! So many photographic opportunities here, especially in the spring. The trees were in full bloom, the grass was finally green and the skies cleared for us that day! Good light can be found anywhere. The trick is finding it with interesting backgrounds. UCONN’s Storrs campus is great for this as well. On this day we photographed between 4:30 -6:30 pm. The light was soft due to some fine clouds which diffused the sun, and the quality of light was warm because the sun was low in the afternoon sky. This helps to create pleasing skin tones and I can get ‘catch lights’ in the eyes. Open skies (not too many big trees or buildings to block the light) is important as well. I had good light reflecting on the faces. No flash or reflectors were used here, I just found some good open or directional light. The last photo is back-lit as the sun was very low.

I had the pleasure of photographing Heather and Eric on Horsebarn Hill on the campus of the University of Connecticut. They are engaged to be married in July! Congratulations to them both.

What is an engagement session and why do I do them? This is the question I get asked most when I meet with my newly engaged couples. It is simple. This is the opportunity for you as a couple to see how I work, feel what it feels like to be in front of the camera, and for both of us to get to know each other better and establish a relationship before the wedding day. For me it is a great way to explore and see how you photograph and what angles make you look your very best, so that I can give you my best when it really matters on the big day! AND, last but not least, it is fun and you both have a great experience with great images of yourselves to remember this time in your lives forever. Here are a few of my favorites images from Erika and Steven’s session. These were taken on a spectacular day at Horsebarn Hill on the UConn campus in Storrs.
I had the honor of photographing two stunningly beautiful people this weekend. UConn students of Engineering, Zahra and Sina came to me for their photo session before their engagement/wedding party on Saturday. I wish you both the best!
