We recently got the chance to create some magic of our own at one of Connecticut’s all-time favorite State Parks, (Eolia Mansion at Harkness Park). Not only was the light at this sunset shoot magical and “Golden”, but Kate & Chris’ Golden-Doodle was just as perfect as the rest of their engagement session.
Have you been to Harkness Park? Do you love it as much as we do?
Ah… the beauty that is New York. From the skyscrapers to the subways. I love so many parts about photographing an engagement session in Manhattan. Grand Central Station is perhaps the most iconic location in my opinion. When I see this building, I immediately see a vintage photograph, perhaps of a bygone era. Can you tell that influenced the 15 second exposure of the following picture?
If you haven’t seen the beach at Harkness Memorial Park, you are missing out on some of the cleanest, softest powder sand in all of Connecticut. The Eolia Mansion property has a small section of fisherman friendly beach, which proved to be (more…)

I had no idea. All the times I’ve been to Block Island for engagement or wedding photos; I’ve travelled via the ferry. The long… slow… ferry… Don’t get me wrong, it is a perfectly good way to get there, but now that I’ve flown there… things will forever be different.
Kelly and Jon wanted to do their pictures of their engagement series on the island of Block Island. Since so much of their time together is spent there, it seemed only fitting. The only problem was, I couldn’t commit the whole day necessary to accomplish it during the week they needed. I’m not sure if it was Kelly or Jon mentioned it, but they said; “Oh it only takes like 15 minutes to get there” Wait what? Long story short, they are frequent air travellers to Block Island and showed me the way. Now I’m not sure I can sit through a 2 hour boat ride ever again.
The famous cliff walk with stunning views, even with early spring dormant vegetation.
The cool part about being out on the island in April, is; look how many people are all around them….
