wedding at the cradle of aviation museum long island

Once upon a time there was a wedding that I had the absolute joy of photographing… in the unlikeliest of places- The Cradle of Aviation Museum in Long Island. There were many other stops in between, their first look, the church and finally the museum. G was the most radiant, happy and calm bride, and her bridesmaids were equally as beautiful and awesome to work with! I started the day at G’s family home and photographed her getting ready with her ladies…

Her Vera Wang gown and Stewart Weitzman shoes were such a beautiful pairing

i want your input!

Have you ever attended a workshop, seminar or photography related get away and left thinking ‘I wish they had offered _____’ or I loved this, but they could have done ____ better…. come on, you know you all have! I know I sure have!

katy and kyle’s newport wedding sneak peek

Katy and Kyle!!!! I miss you guys already. There are some clients who achieve a certain status in our studio for some reason or another- where we feel like we are BFF’s with them and we chat about them all the time! Maybe it’s having their guest books in house, where we see their faces for a while, or I had such a great engagement session with them and I tell stories about it- not sure of the what’s or why’s but these two are those kind of clients for us!
I wish you both lived closer!!!

johnny and leigh ann’s hartford engagement session

While I would be lying through my teeth if I said that I didn’t enjoy traveling all over the world- any chance I get to shoot in my beloved hometown of Hartford gets me right…. HERE. Right in the heart. This engagement session with Johnny Lobo and Leigh Ann was one of those shoots for me for several reasons. I have known these two casually for years- I met Leigh Ann from when Mayor Mike’s restaurant first opened and I used to have the Mayor Mike’s Nine displayed in their dining room- we would have a big party every year Read More
