Pete & Kim’s Stonington Engagement Photos

Last week I met up with Pete & Kim in Stonington for their engagement shoot. Kim and Pete are getting married at Jonathan Edwards at the end of October and their wedding will mark the end of my 2010 season – I couldn’t have chosen a better couple 🙂
This was the first time we’d met in person but we’ve been following each other on Facebook and chatting back and forth the past few months – Kim & Pete are the proud parents of Charlie who is a rescued beach dog from Puerto Rico. Unfortunately Charlie couldn’t join us for the e-shoot but he’ll be there for the wedding and I can’t wait to meet him 🙂
I had SO much fun with you both – enjoy the photos 🙂
This was the first time I’d been to Stonington and it didn’t disappoint – it’s a perfectly charming and beautiful little New England town.
Like most of my couples they claimed that they would need a lot of direction and were not that comfortable in front of the camera and like most of my couples they were wrong…total naturals 🙂
This was someone’s garage door but the house looked empty and we didn’t think they’d mind us borrowing it 🙂
They were troopers and thankfully didn’t suffer from allergies – they gladly tromped through a garden to get to this spot.
Love these.
And this one. Yeah. I have a lot of favorites 🙂
Come on how cute are they??!!
Bling bling on some pretty rocks 🙂
Their laughs were the best – some of my favorite pictures are of people laughing
We found this pretty field on the way to Jonathan Edwards….there probably won’t be Queen Anne’s in October but we may have to visit here with their bridal party!
And a beautiful stone wall (Stonington, eh??!!) right across the street
The vines at Jonathan Edwards were covered with netting to protect the grapes from the birds but we all thought they provided a unique backdrop
This was a first 🙂 Pete is a great photographer so he couldn’t resist taking some snaps of the vineyard. He apologized but I thought it was hilarious and appropriate 🙂
A few more before we headed out to dinner!

Kim & Pete – you both are the best and I can’t wait for the end of October!!
