James and Jessica’s Country meets Beach Engagement Session in Fairfield, Connecticut

Hi friends! Excited to share this beautiful fall engagement session with you today of the sweetest couple.

Jessica and James are Fairfield locals so they had a few special spots in mind for their engagement session, they also knew that they wanted to include their beloved pups, BB and Zazu! So, I met them over in Fairfield, Connecticut at a local spot that is very special to them. They love to go there and walk their pups along the big open trails in the countryside. When we started walking around I quickly understood why they love going their so much – it’s pure Connecticut goodness hidden away for locals to find and enjoy.

Jess and James have been dating for 15 years and truly grew up together – when you hang out with them, you quickly see that they vibe so well off of each other and play off of the others jokes and energy. These two LOVE animals (especially their pups!) and as you know by now, I get along reaaaal well with animal people. 🙂 So of course, immediately we connected and had fun! Side note: they love Disney and are including some Disney decor to their wedding – can’t wait to see what they come up with!!

Our next spot was Southport, Connecticut! This is another local spot that they love to go and hang out at. If you haven’t been to Southport yet, you have to check out – it’s such a lovely small coastal town!

How fun are these custom beer glasses?!

These two tie the knot in a little over a week and I’m so excited to get to see them again and document the biggest day of their lives! One things for sure, good people and sweet pups make for one great engagement shoot. 🙂
