Gouveia Vineyards // A Wallingford Connecticut Engagement Session

When Christine contacted me months ago to photograph her engagement session, she knew right away that she wanted this special time captured at the Gouveia Vineyards in Wallingford Connecticut.  Right away I was excited, because I knew that this time of year would be incredible for light and foliage, but I had no idea just how amazing it would be.Never having been to the Gouveia Vineyards, I didn't know exactly what to expect.  Vineyards are generally gorgeous, so I was eager to scout out the best (and least populated) spots. But the moment I pulled up onto the narrow driveway, I knew I was in for something spectacular.  The vineyard sits at the top of a hill overlooking the Connecticut valley - and the view was amazing.  Bright orange, yellow and red trees stretched out for miles in the distance.  The smell of seasoned firewood burning in the fire pits was all-encompasing.  And since it was a rather chilly day, most of the crowds were inside, sipping the wines made from this year's harvest - leaving us to our own devices!I'm not a huge wine-drinker (set me down with a bottle of Arbor Mist and I'll be perfectly happy), but I know I'll be back soon to get a spot on the tasting-trail and take in those amazing views again!Here are a few of my favorite images from this incredible Vineyard engagement session!
