Harkness Park Engagement: Felicia and Kenny


Friday evening was spent at the beautiful grounds of Harkness Park, in Waterford, CT. The weather was just right, as we were able to enjoy one of the last few days of summer weather. There was so many great areas to capture their love. The best part of the evening was catching the amazing sunset along the beach.
Felicia and Kenny met through a mutual friend, 8 years ago. Kenny couldn’t deny the initial attraction to her, but I mean, come on, look at Felicia, she’s gorgeous! They hit it off and been together ever since. The crazy thing is, they actually knew one another since they were little babies, as Kenny’s mother found a childhood photo of them together. What are the odds of that?!?!

They both are such hard working people, who love their careers. She spends most of her time helping Oncology patients as a Registered Nurse, and he is always working with his hands, in cooling and heating. But don’t be fooled, these two love their down time together with their two Pit Bull’s. There is nothing they find more relaxing on a day off, than fishing on their pond, and floating on the water. And sprinkled donuts are definitely a must for most days.

I’m sure after much pressure from friends and family, they were excited Kenny was finally going to propose! He decided to do it along a special beach in Silver Sands State Park, where they loved to go. There were many nerves and much contemplation on the right place to do it. It came as a shocking surprise, but of course she said, “yes!”

Their beachy, summer wedding will be so beautiful and these are just a glimpse of how gorgeous their wedding photos are going to be.

Look at the little rainbow sun flare!🌈

They’re too cute.

Felicia, you are beyond gorgeous.

Kenny is always making some silly joke or something, kept us all laughing.

Those blue eyes. 😍

So stunning.

Absolutely in LOVE with this ring.

The sun was about to set and we hurried over to the beach to create this magic. ✨

Felicia, you are so beautiful!

They are too cute together!

In love with how the sun hits her beautiful, long curls.

Haha, too cute.


That sun though!

Just look at these two. Stunning.

Sandy feet, ocean breeze, a summer sunset and lots of kisses. No better way to end your engagement session. 💕

Felicia and Kenny, thank you so much for such a fun evening!!! I enjoyed our time together so much. It has been amazing getting to know you both and I am beyond excited for you two. I know that your special day will be amazing, and personalized to you both well. I think I am most excited for the donuts 😍. But don’t worry, you will get your special PVD Donuts, before you say, “I Do,” I will make sure of that! 😉

Much joy,

Charity HOPE
