Candlewood Lake Engagement Shoot: Laura & George

Happy Friday!

We are off to shoot our LAST wedding of 2014! Whew! I can't believe how fast this year has gone by & what an amazing year it has been! Just this wedding & one more anniversary shoot to go!

But before we head out, we just wanted to share with you the adorable engagement shoot we did with Laura & George all around Candlewood Lake! Laura went ALL out for their shoot, bringing the cutest props (hello s'mores!) and planning the most adorable outfits! We started out at one of their favorite wineries and had the most gorgeous sweeping views of the Connecticut hills and this amazing red barn. Then we did a quick outfit change to walk among the vines, before heading out to take a boat over to our own private island where we did a fire on the beach! Incredible!

These two are such a sweet couple & I loved watching how they love together! They are planning a gorgeous wedding for next year at a dream of a venue & now I'm even more excited for the big day to get here!!

NYC Washington Square Engagement: Jenn & Jon

Happy Friday!

Today we are so excited to share Jenn & Jon's NYC engagement shoot! These two met on the very first day of law school at NYU, when on a small group scavenger hunt they realized that they were the only two people who had ever lived in New York before. And since this was the amazing city where they first fell in love, we decided that there was no better place to do their shoot!

Justin & I have shot in NYC about a million times before, but we have actually never been to the Washington Square part of the City. So it was so cool to walk around with these guys & see NYU for the first time, meander through the arch at Washington Square, hang out by the fountain, and end over drinks at one of their favorite local places! It was an amazing day and these guys are an amazing couple! They are so easy going and kind and so much fun to be around....they are the kind of people who instantly put you at ease & make you feel like you've been friends with them forever. We are seriously the luckiest people on the planet to have couples like them!

Jenn & Jon, we can't thank you enough for such an incredible day! And we can't wait to see you for the really BIG day next year! Here are just a few of our faves from the day!

So much love!

Chicago Engagement Shoot: Sophie & Zach

Happy Thursday!

We got to hang out with this amazing couple, Sophie & Zach, when we were out in Chicago earlier this month and we had the BEST time with them! Not only are they so great together with this natural ease between them that made shooting them a DREAM, but they are also just a ton of fun too! After our shoot all around the planetarium and natural history museum, we hung out with them over fried pickles and wine and talked about everything from amazing movies to good books to them introducing us to the incredibleness that is Postmodern Jukebox (google them, trust me you won't regret it!) Sophie & Zach are just the kind of couple you want to be friends with and hang out with on the weekend! And that's our favorite kind of couple to have! So now we are even more excited than ever for their BIG day next year! Until then, here are just a few favorites of our time with them. Enjoy!
