An Engagement Shoot is an excellent opportunity for the clients and photographer to get to know each other in a more intimate setting, such as @topsmeadstateforest. It provides an opportunity to get to know each other a little better before your wedding day. This always helps in creating a more comfortable and relaxed environment once your big day arrives. We got to know Samantha & Richard after taking their engagement photographs which really helped once we photographed their wedding day @hawkslandingcountryclub in Southington, Ct. Here are some samples from our engagement shoot in Litchfield, Ct at Topsmead State Forest. \ https://portal.ct.gov/DEEP/State-Parks/Forests/Topsmead-State-Forest.
Topsmead State Forest is a Connecticut state forest located in the town of Litchfield. It was formerly the summer residence of Edith Morton Chase, daughter of Henry Sabin Chase, first president of the Chase Brass and Copper Company. She left the house and its grounds to the state of Connecticut on her death in 1972.
Here is a review from Samantha & Richard:
Todd was very knowledgeable about some great local spots (Topsmead State Forest) to choose for our photos, and was able to capture the kinds of photos we were hoping for. He made us feel comfortable throughout the photo shoot even when convincing us to move outside of our comfort zone. Todd arrived early for the shoot and it was obvious he was well prepared. He has always been prompt in responding to our questions and concerns when we were working on getting the shoot set up. Overall, it was a great experience and we are very happy with our engagement photos and are excited for the wedding!!
