The hardest part about editing this session was narrowing it down (I pretty much couldn’t, so they get a LOAD of photos in their gallery). Tony and Alyssia make MAGIC in front of the camera, and the thing is, they were just hanging out, playing with their dog Bear, giving piggy backs, but it all is so natural on camera. Plus, these two have all the moments in between that any photographer could want–the hand touches and the glances, you know, the kind of stuff you can’t just pose.
We wandered in a gorgeous open meadow, with stone walls, trees and woods nearby. They dressed perfectly casually for their woodsy session, complete with the cutest possible add-on, their dog Bear. Add in some of my favorite kinds of details (super-cute bride-to-be with a red mug of cocoa? Check!) and this is pretty much one of my favorite sessions all fall. Thank you for coming to see me in Stonington, you guys–I could photograph you all day long!
