Carla + Mike – Middlefield, CT Engagement Session Photos

October 21st, 2008

 This past Saturday Erik & I met up with Carla and Mike for their engagement session. We met at Lyman Orchards in Middlefield, CT, which is an absolutely perfect fall location! Carla and Mike’s story began at school. No, they weren’t students, but teachers. They met briefly and didn’t get to know each other very well, until a year or so later when Carla was looking for a roommate. Her friend suggested Mike be their third roommate. Although Carla was a bit nervous about having a guy for a roommate, she agreed. And for the next year they became fast friends – watching each other date and sharing their experiences. Carla told me that she realized that she wanted to be with Mike when she was on a date with someone else, and had to leave early because she had made plans with Mike to bake cookies. How sweet is that? Baking cookies – that is one of the fun things they still do together.

And now they are getting married! Sometimes what you are looking for is right in front of you.

A little flare:

They are just so in to each other…

And they crack each other up:

It was so gorgeous at Lyman Orchards – love the reflections in the water:

Ultimate trust!

So cute!

The sky was so blue! This is my favorite:

We headed down by the apple trees and had a little fun!

The ring:

Love this one too:


As we were leaving I had to get this last image – the trees in the background were glowing in the gorgeous light!

Carla & Mike we had so much fun with you! We are really looking forward to your wedding!
