Lindsey & Travis – Connecticut Engagement

A few months ago I had the pleasure of working with Lindsey and Travis for their Connecticut engagement session! Travis was here on work for a few months and the two of them decided it would be a perfect time to have an engagement session. Lindsey and Travis were so much fun to work with and total troopers despite how chilly it was outside! Their wedding is planned for later this year in Virginia and I wish the two of them all the best!

 

Jaclyn & Tim – Inn At Mystic Wedding

Jaclyn & Tim - Inn At Mystic Wedding


 

Over the summer I had the wonderful opportunity to work with Jaclyn & Tim for the second time at their Inn at Mystic Wedding! The weather was absolutely gorgeous the entire day and we couldn't have asked for anything better to celebrate the marriage of this truly wonderful couple. The Inn at Mystic is truly a stunning wedding venue and did a wonderful job with everything!

Jaclyn & Tim – Mystic Engagement Session

Jaclyn & Tim's Mystic Engagement Session


If you have ever traveled through the adorably quaint town of Mystic, Connecticut you would definitely understand why it's become one of my favorite locations for any kind of session! I met Jaclyn and Tim for their Mystic engagement session the Friday before their wedding so we could get a good feel of how pictures would go the day of the wedding. I have to say, I love it when my bride and groom decide to have an engagement session with me. It really gives us a great opportunity to work together before the wedding day, to get to know each other a little bit more and to share some laughs! Jaclyn & Tim's mystic engagement session definitely didn't lack any of those things! I knew as soon as we met that these two were not only perfect for each other but that their wedding in mystic was going to be absolutely perfect!

Jinny & Ryan – Mystic Seaport Wedding

Last September I had the absolute pleasure to photograph a beautiful Mystic Seaport Wedding! Jinny & Ryan had a morning ceremony and opted to do a first look right after the sun came up and let me tell you how thrilled I am they chose to do this! As soon as we walked outside from their venue we saw nothing but a thick layer of fog that covered the Mystic Seaport grounds. It made for some absolutely incredible pictures! It stuck around long enough for us to get some great shots before their ceremony began. Jinny & Ryan's Mystic Seaport wedding was full of laughter, dancing and great fun!

Aubree’s Cake Smash – The Love Family

Last week I met up with the Love family to take some very special pictures of Miss Aubree for her first birthday! Working with this little girl was a total breeze and she was such a happy little girl! We ended the session with her epic cake smash and as you will soon see from that last picture she was pretty thrilled!
