Hartford City Hall Engagement Session

September 6, 2023


Lizzie and Kevin had their engagement session at the beautiful Hartford City Hall. While I usually love photographing outdoor sessions, in this session I got to be a little more creative and really play with the stunning architecture that Hartford City Hall had to offer.

I always love knowing my couple’s stories and asked Kevin and Lizzie to share their proposal story with me. Here’s their story in LIzzie’s words:

“Kevin and I were first introduced by mutual friends at a New Year’s Eve party in 2013. We started dating that spring once Kevin came home from college and have been inseparable since! On a random Saturday in May, Kevin surprised me with a proposal.  While we were out, his family had decorated our whole house with pictures, flowers, candles, and luminaries that said “Will you marry me?” Even our dog had a new bowtie on for the occasion. Of course I said yes, and both our friends and families were on standby to come celebrate with us. It was the best day ever, and we can’t wait to tie the knot on NYE 2023!”

Here are a few of my favorite images from this beautiful Hartford City Hall engagement session! Make sure to come back in early 2024 to see their New Year’s Eve Wedding!

I’m a New England and destination wedding photographer with an insatiable desire to be seaside. 

Even when I’m not documenting love stories, I’m likely still settled behind the lens taking photos. Whether I’m walking the cobblestone streets of Italy with gelato in hand, dipping my toes in the North Sea of the Netherlands or wandering down the street for a New England lobster roll, I’m pushing the shutter — freezing — moments in time. Having traveled to over 15 countries and counting, I am passionate about creating experiences that feel well-lived in and well-captured. 

While adventures abroad can certainly awaken the soul, there’s really nothing quite like home. For me, that’s seaside alongside my 75lb. Goldador — and a glass of cabernet.
