Early in October, as the leaves were just starting to change and the air was just starting to turn crisp, I met Christine and Jeff and their adorable dog Jet at a private farm in their town just minutes down the street from their home. They had driven by the farm many times, and thought it would be a perfect setting to take their engagement photos. We all made friends with the owner, who so kindly welcomed us onto his property, and told us all the best places to explore and had one of the most beautiful golden sunsets. Jet was the perfect model! Tagging along and sniffing everything out, he perfectly posed for me several times when I asked him “Jet do you want to look at the camera?!” The perfect model, and the perfect Fall session to start off my October!
As summer comes to an end and the gorgeous Fall wedding season begins, there is nothing more exciting than a bohemian inspired bridal shoot with amazing vendor collaborations! Our shoot took place at Coogan Farm in Mystic, Connecticut on a balmy summer evening. The farm will soon be hosting weddings and events, and has miles of walking trails and fields perfect for photography in any season. Getting to shoot one of my favorite couples again, collaborating with awesome creative minds, and exploring new places is the ideal way to end the summer. Time to get cozy in sweaters and boots and all things pumpkin spice and kick off the Fall season!

I met Michelle when we were both freelancing as graphic designers last year, and we bonded instantly over our obsession with Harry Potter! When she asked if we could incorporate wands and a Wizarding theme into their engagement session I was more than happy to oblige! I've been wanting to do an engagement session at Buttonwood Farm in Griswold, CT since last year, but unfortunately I was too late and the sunflowers were no more when I went to check out the field. I knew this had to happen this year and that Michelle and Brian were the perfect couple to frolic through the flowers with! We had the most beautiful weather and delicious ice cream after as well! Congrats guys, you are completely magical!
