Topsmead State Park Engagement
Litchfield, Connecticut

Meeting Kristen and Dan in person was so joyous! They live in Massachusetts and getting married locally to me and found my services on Zola (that site is really great connecting me to amazing couples)! We met at a halfway point in a new location for me, Topsmead State Park. It could not have been a better choice - there were ponds, hillside cottages, views of the foliage and long cobblestone roads. It was like we were in Holland! I always go through some standard poses with my couples and each one as a signature they are great at...and their's in the LIFT! Was pulled off perfectly so kudos!

We talked a little football, their fur babies, some wedding plans and just got to know each other a bit. Now it will feel familiar and friendly when I show up on the big day which will be next October. It will be here so soon and I am so excited to see them again on their family property! It will be the perfect day!

All smiles,
