Paulette & Mark–Reservoir Engagement Shoot

Mark and Paulette Blog - 18

Paulette & Mark
West Hartford Reservoir

Jake and I were super excited to do an engagement shoot with these two. We have known Mark and Paulette for years. We have even celebrated a few holidays together. They feel like family to us, so it was nice and special for us to help them document their engagement. We joined them at the reservoir off Rt.44 to take advantage of a setting with a few different things to offer. The trees were full of color and the reservoir added a nice water element to the photos. It was a fun time with both of them. We are so excited and honored to be a part of their wedding day next May. We hope you enjoy checking out some of their photos.

Laura & Steven–Up On The Hill

Laura and Steven
Engagement Shoot
Lyman Orchards

We met Laura and Steven a few weeks ago at Lyman Orchards for their engagement shoot. They live not far from the orchards and thought it would be a great backdrop for photos. It was awesome! However, for those of you who have not done the Lyman experience, it is massive! There are acres and acres of land, fruit trees, and even a golf course. Laura and Steven were open to our suggestions on photos, yet we had no idea where to even begin! Jake and I were there early looking around and getting ideas, when we met our angel of the orchard. I decided to ask this sweet looking girl who was shutting down the farm stand if she had any ideas. I figured who better than an employee to give us the scoop on great photo locations. Gracie was excited and eager to help. She hoped in her SUV and we followed her down paths we would have never explored on our own. She walked us to her favorite spots in the apple and peach orchards. And she showed us some incredible views. We took it all in and used many of the locations she showed us. The light was gorgeous, Laura and Steven did great with the camera, and we LOVE the photos. So Laura and Steven, thanks for choosing such a great location and being awesome subjects. And Gracie, thanks for the tour. It wouldn’t have been as fun and successful without your help!
