Engagement Session Hartford CT
We are in the heart of the holiday season, and I am so excited about all the Christmas cheer coming from everyone. If there is anyone who has the most Christmas spirit, it is Andrea. Andrea and Danny’s Engagement Session Hartford CT was just the right amount of Christmas! I absolutely love this holiday, but is there anyone who loves it more? Andrea and Danny are the right people. Although, I think Andrea likes it a little bit more than Danny does.
We traveled up to Dzen Tree Farm, located around Hartford, CT, for their engagement session. It was worth every minute of the drive! When I got there, I was greeted with a blanket of snow from the weekend, and it added SO much to the aesthetic of the session! The Christmas/Winter vibe Andrea and Danny had wanted to come to life with this location and session. Engagement Session Hartford CT
But the star of the show was Phoebe! Their 4-month-old lab puppy! She is the cutest thing and super excited to be there. All she wanted to do is run around and eat everything in sight. She kept getting dirty, so we decided to use her more for the truck because their outfits were more casual.
Tree Farms have become my favorite place to shoot around the holidays. They really bring a festive feel to the images. Most couples don’t like shooting around this time. They either want a beach in the summer or a park in the fall or spring, so shooting during the holidays and at a Tree Farm is a nice change of pace. Engagement Session Hartford CT
We started with their formal outfits. Andrea wore a beautiful maroon dress and Danny wore black pants and a white shirt. They complimented each other perfectly, adding to the green and white we had as their background colors.
Andrea told me that they wanted a beautiful photo for their living room of the three, so naturally, we got Pheobe ready, with her chicken treats, of course, and got an amazing shot of the three of them.
One of my favorite shots from the shoot was when Phoebe came crashing into Danny’s shoes and looked right at the camera as she did so. It’s so cute! Engagement Session Hartford CT
We made an outfit change, decorated the truck, faced it towards the sun, and started creating magic! This part of the session was near perfect! I say near-perfect because nothing in life is perfect, but if perfect is as good as this part, we definitely achieved it.
It was very casual and laid back. We didn’t do anything fancy except drink some beer, dance in the bed to Feliz Navidad, and put a Santa hat on Phoebe. She did not like that very much! Engagement Session Hartford CT
We got snuggly with the blanket and wrapped up in Christmas lights. You could tell Danny was FREEZING by the time we ended, as were we all. Andrea brought her sister and best friend to help with Phoebe and to be there for moral support.
These two absolutely killed it, and I can’t wait for you to scroll down and see the photos! Engagement Session Hartford CT
Andrea and Danny will be tying the knot in December 2021 at the Aria in CT. Congrats to the future, Mr. and Mrs. Jernigan. Engagement Session Hartford CT
