Engagement Shoot At Nichols Enders Falls and Barkhamsted Reservoir In Barkhamsted, Connecticut

Elaine and Stephen were a curious and cute couple who wanted to know what they would look like on their wedding day, which eventually led them to decide to take an engagement shoot with me. 


We went to the Nichols Enders Falls and Barkhamsted Reservoir to shoot their cute engagement photos. It was a bummer that we were not able to witness a large drop of water on the waterfall during our engagement shoot, but we were able to take magnificent shots of water views in the background. Stephen kneeled in front of Elaine to remake his proposal regardless of how awkward it felt to relive the memories of the first “yes.” 


Elaine and Stephen posed sweetly and stunningly as we moved along the Barkhamsted Reservoir. Our engagement shoot at the Barkhamsted Reservoir lasted as quickly as ten minutes since the sun was about to set. Even though it was short, the sunset gave Elaine and Stephen elegant silhouette photos. 

Thank You

I loved shooting this engagement session so much!  This couple were fantastic to work with and a ton of fun to be around.

If you’re planning an engagement session soon get in touch!
