There are so many things that I love about this engagement session with Ryan and Caity. So. MANY. You may think it’s the location. Gouveia Vineyard in Wallingford CT has quickly become one of my most favorite places to to not only photograph, because like- DUH-have you seen it? But it’s also a really wonderful place to go with my family and friends, pack up a bunch of appetizers, sandwiches, chocolate… and go enjoy the grounds, let the kids run around , enjoy the big fire pit and live music and watch the sun set over the hill. But even beyond that, what I loved more was seeing how these two be so incredibly present for each other. They had this stillness about them that was so settling and calming and wonderful. We all shared this symbiotic chemistry together… them being, and me seeing them, understanding them. It took my breath away then, and it still does, months later looking through these images again…!
To say I can’t wait for their wedding is the understatement of the year… to meet their families, and friends, to watch them exchange their vows, and commit themselves to each other will be a beautiful and emotional thing.
And man, I cannot wait!!
