Jessica + Michael | Foxwoods Engagement Session | CT Engagement Photographer

Jessica and Mike met during their sophomore year at Bentley University. Their dorm rooms were right next to each other but they didn’t realize it until they started chatting at a party. The rest, as they say, is history!

Mike proposed while vacationing in Bora Bora with Jessica and her family. Jess’s parents pretended to “win” a private boat ride over to a small island and they invited the couple to tag along. While taking pictures at sunset, Mike got down on knee and proposed! Jess was very surprised and obviously said “Yes!” The ring couldn’t have been more perfect as it incorporated her favorite gemstone: emeralds.

We shot Jessica and Mike’s engagement session at Foxwoods, first in their hotel room for an intimate feel, and then we ventured out to the main areas of the casino for a few fun and unique photos! Jessica and Mike’s wedding venue is at Lake of Isles, so we thought it would be special to incorporate the location for their engagement session as well!

We really enjoyed this shoot and can’t wait for your June wedding!
