Cheryl and Andrew’s Wethersfield Engagement

Cheryl and Andrew’s Wethersfield engagement session was my first in this historic Connecticut town. Located just minutes from Manchester, Hartford, and Glastonbury, we took full advantage of this cozy, downtown area. Here’s how it went…

Lovers of Boston sports, cats, and getting out to do stuff together, Cheryl and Andrew inquired with me to be their wedding photographer during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Wethersfield was an easy choice for the location of their CT engagement session. I recall them telling me that they love the area and thought it would be perfect for fall photos before their spring wedding. I couldn’t agree more.

Sights to See in Wethersfield

As far as where to go during a downtown Wethersfield engagement session, here are some must-see attractions in this historic neighborhood:

Heirloom Market at Comstock Ferre

One of the most popular locations in downtown Wethersfield is Heirloom Market at Comstock Ferre. This indoor and outdoor natural food market and café is full of New England charm year round. The string lights they decorate with outside add a nice touch.

Main Street Creamery

If your engagement session in Wethersfield is in the spring or summer, be sure to get a cold treat at Main Street Creamery. Besides, it’s well known that including ice cream in your engagement photos is a top-notch choice.

Lucky Lou’s

This is such a good restaurant and bar. Call ahead to Lucky Lou’s, make a reservation, and ask if they would be OK with you having some Wethersfield engagement session photos taken on the property.

Webb Deans Stevens Museum

A splendid museum and home to an awesome barn wedding venue, the Webb Deane Stevens Museum is a perfect option. Be sure to call ahead and ask about hours and buying tickets, if even just to use the outdoor grounds.

Engagement Photos at Wethersfield Cove

When I was with Cheryl and Andrew for their session, they asked if we could leave the downtown area for a few more pictures. If you know anything about me, you know that I hardly ever say “no” when couples I work with ask if we can take more pictures!

We headed to Wethersfield Cove for more engagement photos. This historic inlet, which is open to the public, is an awesome hidden gem for Wethersfield engagement sessions. This location is a marina that’s really nice backdrop for engagement pictures, including the 300-year-old Cove Warehouse.
