Gillette State Park | Alyssa & Sean

September 3, 2017

Alyssa and Sean were an adorable couple whose wedding I can't wait to photograph next October. They are big into the craft beer scene and brought along their favorite beverage to celebrate the session. I always encourage my couples to bring along something personal to add to their session. They love the craft scene so much that they will be married at the rad The Hops Company in Derby which is gonna be new!

We met at the beautiful Gillette Castle in East Haddam. We had some amazing autumn views of the river and this area is where my husband grew up so it is super special to visit. My couples always say "oh we are awkward in front of the camera" but end up crushing it!

See you soon lovebirds.

All Smiles,

More About Mariel

This blog is a small representation of my most current sessions, my clients love stories and all the adventures I am privilaged to go on! Ways to my heart include coffee, feeding me before I am "hangry" and anything shabby chic/rustic. My vintage camera collection grows everday and I am usually smiling and quoting random movies. Most importantly Mariel O. Photo celebrates love in all forms regardless of race, religion, or sexual orientation & gender identity.
