With almost exactly a year to go until they tie the knot, I met up with Rachel and Artem at Harkness Memorial State Park in Ct for their engagement session. It was a brutally cold and windy December day, but they loved being there and were true champs showing off their style and love for each other and their new pup Brie (who I totally fell in love with). Rachel and Artem will be married next December with an outdoor ceremony at one of our favorite venues, the Saltwater Farm Vineyard. I am so excited about them having an outdoor ceremony in the winter at a gorgeous vineyard! There's something incredibly romantic about braving the elements and celebrating your love for each other in the cold of December. I'm also incredibly curious as to how the vineyard will look and what I can do with it in images. For the session they brought a couple of blankets that we used to keep them warm, and Brie, the wonder pup.
