I love photographing elopements for two simple reasons. First, they give me the opportunity to develop a deeper connection with the couple. Second, it allows the couple to relax, unwind, and be present with each other without the schedules, timelines, and the typical craziness of a traditional wedding. These are the reasons that most couples make the decision to elope. For Jackie & Chris, it was. It was such an amazing time being their Westport photographer for their summer elopement at Sherwood Island. Really, it was magical! the weather was perfect, not hot nor cold, a bit cloudy to protect us from the sun and for a summer day at a beach, not many people around!
Jackies’s beautiful bouquet is from the talented team at Arcadia Flowers in Mamaroneck and the dress from Justin Alexander!
While Connecticut is not a well-known state for elopements, this area is filled with beautiful locations – both known, unknown, traveled, and off the beaten path. Sherwood Island in Westport is one of them! It’s beautiful, it’s clean and not crowded.
Check out this elopement I photographed between Jackie & Chris at Sherwood Island in Westport, CT, and let me know if you have any questions. If you are planning to elope, I would love to be your elopement photographer.
So, what do you think? Aren’t they just a gorgeous couple? They, I am sure, will make beautiful babies one day! If you are planning a wedding in Connecticut or an elopement, feel free to contact me. I am here to help.
