Engagement Session at Harkness Park's Eolia Mansion in Waterford, CT :: Julia and Robert

I have to admit that I've been behind in showing off all of the great engagement sessions that I've been able to capture over the past couple of months and I want to fix that. I absolutely love getting to have an engagement session with a couple. Not only do we get to capture some incredible images together.. photographs that can speak to your daily lives, hint at an inside joke, incorporate a favorite hobby, show off where you had your first date, have a casual feel, or give you an excuse to get all dolled up with a new dress or suit! We also get to know each other. We work past some of the photography jitters, most of us aren't used to being infant of a camera.. I know that I'm not! Pick a place, a garden, the beach, your first home together, they city you met in, a cafe.. wherever! Then spend some time wandering around, feeling out what lets you feel the most natural for photos.

This past Sunday I got to photography Julia and Robert's engagement session around the Eolia Mansion at Harkness Park in Waterford, Connecticut. And it was one of those fun evenings.. with the laughing and the stories. It has me so excited to be a part of their upcoming wedding later this month!
