Mike and Lily – City Love in Hartford

Uncategorized

I met Mike and Lily in a coffee shop in Old Saybrook. They found me through some photos they had seen of a couple from the same venue they were getting married at. I knew as soon as we sat down, we would be a perfect match to shoot their Wedding! These two radiate happiness. Like really, I don’t think I asked either of them to smile once for this whole shoot. This is just them being happy that we spent two hours wandering around Hartford. I mean really, it doesn’t get better than that.

What really seals the deal on how amazing these two are, is that we were aiming to do this shoot in Bushnell Park. As I pulled into Hartford at 7:30am, I noticed something was odd about the city that morning. As I got closer to the park, I was diverted by police. Of all days we decided to shoot the park, it happened to be the day that the Puerto Rican Day Parade was going right through the middle of it! Instead of letting that rain on the Mike and Lily Parade, we wandered around and had our own amazing parade celebrating these two. I must say, I think a year is far too long to wait to shoot these two again! Good thing it will pass in the blink of an eye!

Mike and Melissa – Devil’s Hopyard Love
Mike and Melissa had found me through a previous client who recommended me. They had reached out for their wedding for the summer of 2014. It was getting to be late fall, but with every wedding package, an engagement shoot is required! I do this because it helps me not only get to know a couple and what they like, but it helps me know what images are going to appeal to you the most. So with the last of the trees losing their leaves, we headed to Devil's Hopyard State Park. It was a stunning location that I had wanted to shoot at for quite some time. What was even more stunning, was how awesome Mike and Melissa are! I know I say great things a ...
