nelya and chris wedding at the farmington club

Hey there! Graham and Ashley comin’ atcha’ from way down South. This month we had the pleasure of shooting Nelya and Chris’ gorgeous wedding. The day began at The Gallery Salon in Farmington Connecticut, where Nelya shone from the inside out as her hair was pinned up and her makeup was applied:

She continued to shine as she slipped into her gorgeous Maggie Sottero gown, and as her veil was put in… and the radiance stayed, not waning one bit, for the entire, beautiful day.

It’s So Ranunculus did a beautiful job with the flowers:

alison and nick wedding at the fox hill inn

Alison and Nick had one of the most outrageously fun weddings this summer- with emotion to spare!! I started the day off with Allison at home. Her shoes, were amazing Christian Louboutin’s!!
Her engagement ring is one of my all time faves!

When Alison saw her grandmother for the first time, she was in tears! They were so adorable and sweet

Did I say it was hot? Well it was HOT! So hot, in fact, that a cold pack of peas didn’t do much to cool anyone down!

I know Mike was just secretly hungryRead More

kelsey and jeff wedding on the ct shoreline

July brought the heat- in more ways than you can imagine! From the weather, sure, of course- to my couples! Kelsey and Jeff are not only the sweetest, most beautiful couple- yes, Jeff is pretty beautiful too! But they are FUNNY and they appreciate random, photo bombing crazy-right-up-my-alley-type-of-humor- so to say I was having a great time with their wedding is the understatement of the year! Just watch!!
To add to the line up of greatness was the mastery of beauty that is Dana Bartone and Company– Miss Amy, worked her brushes like a master here on Kelsey (again, not Read More

Danielle and John’s seaside wedding at the Saybrook Point Inn in Old Saybrook, CT was one of the most outwardly emotional, colorful, and just plain old wonderful days ever. Ever!

buttonwood farm studio shoot

Those of you that know me, or my studio personally, impersonally, close or from far away may know of my obsession / love of the Buttonwood Farms sunflower farm in Griswold CT. What’s not to love?? It’s a bunch of random fields FULL of ginormous sunflowers! Need I say more? Each year it comes around I secretly and publicly obsess over what I want to shoot there, and no matter how much I plan… most of what I do takes a rather serendipitous turn.
This past winter Katie Slater, our amazing associate photographer for the studio- had the brilliant idea Read More
