Napatree Point Proposal and Engagement Session

Engagement

There’s nothing quite like a frigid February day at the beach – and despite these photos looking beautiful and sunny, I’ll tell you that wind was cutting through us as we walked. Nonetheless – Francesco’s proposal to Ashley, and subsequent engagement session at Napatree Point made for a beautiful evening.
Located near Mystic, Connecticut just across the Rhode Island border, Napatree is a stunning conservation area and beach. With only a few other people at the beach; we had the wide expanse of sand and dunes nearly to ourselves for a beautiful private session. The sun was definitely a paid actor, and the insanely gorgeous sunset was a perfect background as Ashley and Francesco danced on the beach, walked together, and cuddled in the sand dunes…

A Foggy Southbury Engagement

Engagement

When I asked Max & Haele to meet me at sunrise at the Bent of the River Audubon Park in Southbury, I knew I wanted sunrise, but I didn’t even let myself hope for fog. Late winter mornings are the best chance of fog, but there’s never a guarantee, so imagine my delight when we woke up and it was a heavy layer of beautiful fog blanketing the entire park…

Edgerton Park Greenhouse Engagement

Engagement

Just one week before we photographed this stunning engagement session in New Haven, CT – Dhiene reached out to a local Facebook group looking for a photographer who could photograph an engagement session fairly quickly. I had some free time in my schedule, and responded (along with several other local photographers), and within a day I’d connected with these two…

Connecticut Pride Session at Platt Park | MJ + Angela

Portraits

It’s June … and for those of us celebrating – Happy Pride! I knew coming into this year that I wanted a session that was incredibly romantic, soft neutral tones, and gorgeous landscape. I put out a model call in a local LGBTQIA+ social media group asking for a couple who might want to participate in my session – and I met MJ and Angela through that group…
