Nick and Holly – Engagement in the Woods


“Look for the red SUV covered in mud” I said, and Holly responded simply “Okay.” See, we had agreed to meet at a Scantic River State Park. Now I had never been there, but I like to think that with any area, you can make great photos, just have to figure out how. Anyways, I had said to meet on such and such road, well I did not do my research because that road used to run through the park, so Nick and Holly were on one side of the park and I was on the other. So we figured that out and I drove to the nearest main road and told them to look for that muddy truck. I enjoy off roading, and I don’t always get around to washing my truck afterwards! It was definitely surprising that her reaction was simply okay, but I quickly found out Nick was an off road enthusiast as well. It was love at first sight with these two, I knew we could definitely be friends. So we explored a little section of the park, and boy it was cold. Poor Holly was taking her jacket on and off for every photo, and I was cold in a coat! But they both were troopers and we got some great photos because of it. After Scantic, we went to a park that was my 2nd choice to shoot some photos at, but I couldn’t find any info on it, so I decided to go to Scantic. So when Nick and Holly wanted some photos with their beautiful pups and they recommended that park, I got excited! And boy was it beautiful! We definitely could have done the whole shoot there. At the end of the day, I met two really awesome people, that I could definitely see hanging out with on the weekends! And not only that, BUT I get to shoot their wedding this fall! And that has me seriously excited! I can only hope that they hire a driver and drive in Nicks jeep instead of a limo!!!

Kristin and Alicia – Old Sturbridge Love
I hadn't met Kristin and Alicia prior to their engagement shoot as they live quite a distance away, and our schedules never seemed to line up. When the time finally came to meet up, we embarked on an engagement shoot, IN OLD STURBRIDGE VILLAGE! Now I hadn't been to the village since I was in middle school, so of course I was super excited to get the chance to go back! And boy did it pay off, such a great grounds for a shoot! Now enough about how much fun I had, lets talk about how much fun Kristin and Alicia are. You may notice that many of the photos you will see below, are photos of them laughing. I couldn't tell you how much fun and love I ...
Steve and Karen – Waterfalls and Kaley!
I LOVE Steve and Karen. Like seriously, I cannot be happier to be shooting their wedding this summer. Steve and I played phone tag for about 3 weeks, but finally we were able to get on the phone together and book their engagement shoot before it got too cold. The leaves were off the trees, and it definitely wasn't warm, but these three made it warm! I really had a blast jumping in and out of waterfalls to get their shots. Now if you don't know Steve and Karen, you should, because they are too much fun. I have to admit, I couldn't use many of the photos I took because we were all laughing so hard. Either I was shaking the camera laughing, or I ...
Luke and Kara – Mystic Engagement
I made a long trip down to Mystic, Connecticut for the engagement shoot of Luke and Kara. It was well worth the trip, not only for these beautiful photos, but for the laughs! My goodness these two perfect for each other! Sometimes, watching a couple, you just know. And the fact that there are plenty of photos with Luke having a goofy face and Kara laughing, only goes to prove it. I mean, I even have a photo of Luke flexing some muscles shortly after I asked him for a slightly more masculine stance. Seriously, I cannot wait for your wedding! We are going to have a blast!
