mike, soon to be baby daddy

As many of you know- my boy Mike is expecting the arrival of his little guy this coming Wednesday… and all of us couldn’t be more excited for him and Kim!! Now, I LOVE surprises…. and I especially love surprising the self proclaimed unsurpriseable- not to mention that it’s just fun to do something nice for someone…! So it was inevitable that I do something for my buddy as he is about to enter into a whole other realm of life as he knows it!
Here are some fun shots from the surprise shower I threw last Thursday for Read More

my Super sweet sixteen on MTV

…well, not MY super sweet sixteen! Sunday brought the third super intense day of shooting this past weekend for Mike and I. Kiva Sutton asked us to second shoot this ‘super sweet’ gig with him, and of course we had to say yes!
This party was completely over the top- and a lot of fun as well! I really enjoyed the behind the scenes stuff we got to shoot as MTV was there as well shooting this for their popular show ‘My Super Sweet Sixteen.’ I have to say I was prepared for Cristina to be the Read More

liz + pepsi wedding at St. Clement’s Castle Portland CT

Saturday brought part two of our wedding adventures with our clients turned friends Liz & Pepsi. We had the most beautiful day for the outdoor ceremony on the grounds of St. Clement’s Castle. We started the day back at the Inn at Middletown, where we were the night before shooting their traditional Laotian Ceremony. While the girls got their hair and make up done by the very talented and super nice Dana Bartone (who I finally met face to face!) Mike and I shot some details in the bridal suite.
The ring shot is very simple and clean, for sure! Read More

liz + pepsi traditional laotion wedding

So Friday started with Liz getting prepped for her traditional Laotion wedding ceremony- where everything was new for her (and me and Mike, and honestly most of her family as well) It was incredibly interesting for me to see what everything symbolized and how everything meant something.One of the things I loved the most was the color- there was so much of it and it was just beautiful.

Gershon Fox Room Wedding

I shot at the old G Fox Building now called the Gershon Fox Room last night for the first time and I LOVED it! One of the reasons is my old Hartford pride… I am a Hartford gal through and through and SO super proud of all of the good things that my little Hartford has going for it!
And THIS is most certainly one of them! This room is just full of art deco splendor and the interior design of the space is so different from anything out there that I just had to pre-empt my wedding post Read More
