Liz + Scott | Sailboat Engagement | Candlewood Lake, CT

A sailboat engagement shoot is my new favorite way to photograph couples in love. It's a beautiful, intimate setting and allows you to find out a great deal about your couple. The scenery changes around you constantly and pushes you creatively. This was the perfect setting to photograph Liz and Scott. Their personalities are relaxed yet poised. They are goofy and very well put together. I want to work with more couples like them!

We spent a gorgeous summer afternoon on Candlewood Lake in Sherman, CT, laughing, drinking wine, and telling stories. This was my first shoot on a sailboat so I had to be a bit adventurous with how to shoot them. Hanging off the mast while speed boats were flying by gave me one serious rush of adrenaline. Liz and Scott were incredibly sweet to work with and I loved them so much that we've already planned a second engagement shoot for the spring! I can never get enough of photographing real love. Thank you Allie for introducing me to these two!

Liz and Scott, I cannot wait to photograph your wedding. I know it will be just as beautiful and fun as you both!
