Jessie + Sean – Westport, CT Engagement Session Photos

January 28th, 2009

Jessie and Sean met while working at an herb nursery. Sean was Jessie’s boss. After a few months, Sean asked Jessie out on a date, and they have been together ever since. I can only imagine what it must have been like to be around them before they started dating. When Erik & I first met them we instantly felt the chemistry between them, and it felt even more intense when we met up with them on Saturday at the Longshore Ice Skating Rink in Westport. Erik & I decided to protect our gear and our bottoms by not getting on ice skates, since we are super klutzy! Jessie and Sean were a bit nervous about falling (and us capturing it no less), but they were both so graceful – we were really impressed. We saw many people falling, but not Jessie and Sean. They were skating around like they were pro’s.

Putting on the skates:

Love this shot of Sean tying Jessie’s skates:


So cute ; ) Jessie has the best smile.

Things started to steam up…

Seriously! Can you feel that??


I love this one:

The ring.

I LOVE this one that Erik captured.

See what I mean about being coordinated? I was very impressed that they pulled this off – it came so naturally!

Jessie & Sean are beach people, so we made sure to take the time to go to “their” beach – Burying HIll Beach in Westport.

It was really cold – but they kept each other warm.

The light was gorgeous!

I was loving the rocks at low tide – the colors and textures.

Really gorgeous light.

There were these cool wooden posts scattered everywhere.

; )

Beautiful sunset

We found the spot where they had carved their names

Then we went to Starbucks to warm up!

They had some cuddling time

Thank you Jessie & Sean! We had so much fun with you guys. We are really looking forward to your wedding!

    Awwwwwwwww! I feel like a voyeur during these sweet and intimate moments. What an adorable couple and I must say that it is a testament to the photographers to gain as much trust with these two. I ADORE the ring shot. It is just such a perfect moment…sweet and natural. I just know that Jacob will want to see this session over and over and over because he loves the pictures that his aunt and uncle shoot…weird for a three year old but magical because he GETS it.
    Beautiful couple and fantastic pictures.
