caitlin and scott’s wedding at the waterview

As the fall geared up here in CT, we headed to the southwest corner of our little Nutmeg state for the wedding of our sweet couple Caitlin and Scott at the Waterview in Monroe. We had amazing weather and a great group of people to help make their day the best! Along for the ride with me were my trusty two: Mike Romano and Greg Lewis, who never fail to keep me laughing all day long!
I started the day off with Caitlin getting ready at her family home, where she grew up.

Caitlin’s flowers had a Read More

paul and krystal’s ct backyard wedding final chapter

I’m sad to see the final chapter be here for Paul and Krystal’s crazy amazing 10-10-10 wedding… Let me just say that I have been there from way back when. Back when Paul KNEW he was going to ask Krystal to marry him, and gave him the tip on the place where he got her ring- AND! was even going to be there when he popped the question! But, sadly my schedule was too crazy and rather than be a selfish gal, which I TOTALLY wanted to be! and have them wait for me to be available to be there, Read More

catherine and scott’s urban decay-ish anniversary session

One of the ultimate compliments to me is when I get asked to photograph my fellow photographers… it is such an honor. But the pressure! LOL Well, with fellow photographers Catherine and Scott Dove of Dove Photography in New Jersey the only pressure is how to not pee in your pants from laughing so hard while shooting! Now THAT is some pressure!! I met the Doves a few years back and have run into them about once a year since- and every time we laugh and enjoy each others company and curse the fact that we live so far away! Read More

A year ago I took one of the coolest trips ever: I traveled to Mexico with my dad for Day of the Dead. While it was amazing I also missed Halloween- a very sacred holiday in my household- with my kids. So this cool trip came at a cost! I’m serious! We love Halloween THAT much.
