For this Southport engagement session, my couple who live on Nantucket had to make some changes to their plans. When Covid restrictions weren’t making it easy to venture out to meet each other on the island, we came up with the next best thing. We would have their engagement session in Coastal Connecticut. Which is perfect, because Southport is not far from where their families are from and where their June wedding will take place. This location was the perfect backdrop to showcase their connection to not only each other but their roots in this small town on the shore.
We began our session among the quaint streets and enjoyed the varying colonial architecture along our walk. The beautifully manicured lawns and curb appeal of the gorgeous homes were the perfect touch. Our session ended on the beach as the sun set. Quintessentially New England, this session takes in all the colonial charm of the region.
The Harbor that overlooks the sound was the perfect place to spend a warm summer night together. With my couple dressed in perfectly preppy chic fashion, we played up the aesthetic. We worked with the textures and tones in their attire to convey a sophisticated sense of relaxation. We played into the casual feel and channeled their Nantucket roots in the location and posing inspiration. That strolling by the shops feel is captured beautifully in these images.
At the end of the evening, as the sun was setting, we changed into a beach casual look and took in the last drops of sun. The cotton candy skies, the pink and blue hues, were the perfect patterns against their easy and gentle way with each other. If you want to feel like you’re on a summer stroll in New England, look no further.
