Darlene + Eric | Cove Island Beach Engagement Session

When things are meant to be, it’s just that – they’re meant to be. That’s exactly what happened when Darlene was set up on a blind date with Eric. Not know what to expect she told her sister that she would call during the date if things didn’t pan out. However, that night the stars were aligned and when Darlene saw Eric, she knew there was no need to worry. And the rest, as they say, is history.    We had such a good time during their engagement session on a warm Sunday evening.  These two are soo laid back and so much fun to be around.

Here are some of my favorites. Enjoy!!!

We kicked off the session where their story began, at Bobby V’s in the booth where they had their 1st date!

How ironic that they spotted this bottle cap, which is the 1st beer that they had together.

Samara + Marty | Westport Estate Wedding

Samara and Marty had an absolutely PERFECT day for their backyard wedding.  The weather was perfect – the sun was shining and it was wasn’t too hot.  This was the 3rd daughter getting married at the family home.  After months of planning Samara got her wish and walked out the french doors down the steps into the backyard to marry the man of her dreams.  Weddings like this remind me why I absolutely love what I do – I love documenting one of the happiest days of my couples lives surround by the love of their family and friends.    Samara & Marty thank you SO much for inviting Raf and I to be a part of your day – it was such an honor for us to be there.

Enjoy a few of my favorites and be sure to check out their SLIDESHOW to view more images from their wedding day. Enjoy:)

When I walked into Samara’s bedroom and saw this Monique Lhuillier waiting for me, I wanted to die!!!

Sophia + Chris | South Norwalk Engagement Session

I can still remember the first email that I received from Sophia – “Finally being able to unite as 1 under God, witnessed by our family and friends.  We are finally ready to start a life together after being together for 10 years!”  Yes, their love story was 10 years in the making !  I was so touched by her email and I knew, I just knew this was a love story that I wanted to document and preserve for them.  We spent a recent Sunday afternoon with Sophia and Chris walking around South Norwalk for their engagement session and it was soo easy to see how these two just adore each other.  He’s the yin to her yang – they complete each other.  We’re so excited and honored to be documenting their wedding at the end of this month.    I CANNOT WAIT!!!!!

For now, enjoy a few of my favorites from our afternoon together!

YES!  Mr. and Mrs. Guzman coming soon!!!!!
