rockin the park & the town













On Friday I had the distinct pleasure of photographing Heather & Steve at Hartford's Elizabeth Park- yes, I said HARTFORD! West Hartford needs to stop taking credit for it, it's totally ours. It is also the oldest municipal rose garden in the country, super beautiful and a place that engaged couples LOVE to be photographed in! And why wouldn't they? It has so much character and so many nooks and crannies in it- there is this one part that really reminds me of the Lord of the Rings*, minus the orcs, of course! Heather & Steve were so super relaxed and did such an amazing job of getting comfortable fast. We talked about how they check out my blog (hi Heather!) and she said that it helped give her ideas and direction for her shoot, since she could see what I have been doing lately with other couples. Also I think that once people hire me they want to keep checking back to make sure that I am still, in fact a good photographer! ;) No worries there, can I get an AMEN!! Just a girl patting her own back here. So stop being quiet stalkers, girls! I KNOW you're ON! POST!! Show yourselves!

*side note on LOTR- Orlando Bloom- cuter as the elf Legolas or as the super hottie in Elizabeth Town? Pirates? Don't like him with facial hair? I want to know!! Seriously. And Paul & Stevedepino.com I already know your votes!! ;)
