Classic Mystic Seaport, Ct. Engagement Photography by Della Bella Photography

May 7, 2016

Jesus proposed to Jackie at a bench just outside Mystic Seaport overlooking the harbor. After speaking with Jackie and Jesus they wanted to do an engagement shoot and to try and recapture that romantic day with digital stills. We figured a late afternoon shoot in and outside Mystic Seaport and Harbor was are best shot to recreate that special proposal.

Mystic Seaport has the single largest collection of maritime photography in the world, the Photography Collection at Mystic Seaport includes the Rosenfeld Collection, depicting America’s Cup and other yacht races, sail and motor yachts; the Carlton Mitchell collection, documenting yacht races and Caribbean travel; and historic photographs spanning more than a century and half of American commercial and recreational activity,from New England shipbuilding to Arctic exploration. I arrived early to this location and had a chance to look at some great maritime photographs.

Just a little digression, back to the engagement shoot, here are a small sample of images from Jackie & Jesus’ Engagement Shoot and I will see you soon for your wedding at Anthony’s Ocean View in New Haven,Ct.
