Grab a glass of iced tea and sit yourself down! This is a big one, and I am so excited to show you all of my favorite images that we got from Margy and Mike’s wedding at Battell Chapel on the Yale campus and the New Haven Lawn Club in New Haven CT.

Here Margy, Mike’s mom (on Read More

Lisa and Ben’s wedding is a visual feast, with DIY details like you’ve never seen before at the Barns at Wesleyan Hills. Combine Lisa’s details with portraits at Wesleyan University, a family whose love you can feel and a wedding party that doesn’t stop dancing, and you have one heck of a wedding. Congratulations Lisa and Ben!
Kudos to Athena Blude for shooting with me, and don’t miss cameo appearances by VIPs and photographers extraordinaire, Tony and Steve.

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

mariah and dan greenwich, ct engagement

I don’t know where to confirm this, but I’m pretty sure that the day of Dan and Mariah’s engagement shoot back in July was officially THE hottest day of the summer. Even in the early evening when we were shooting, the temperature was still in the 90’s and the humidity almost unbearable. These two were troopers though, and I think you’ll agree that it was totally worth the extra sweat. Their Greenwich engagement photos have a little bit of everything – from urban downtown photos, to the beach and even the firehouse (Dan is a friend Read 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
