barns at wesleyan hills wedding middletown ct

In May Mike, Jasmine and I had the pleasure of photographing a sweet barn wedding at a sweet rustic venue, The Barns at Wesleyan Hills in Middletown CT. Nicole and Todd had bright pops of color mixed with rustic details to help brighten a sky that threatened to open up at any moment! We managed to dodge some rain throughout the day and get some pretty fun and colorful pictures! See for yourself! Nicole’s dress was by Jim Hjelm and was so elegant and beautiful!

Nicole got her bridesmaids Tom’s shoes to change into during the reception. I love Read More

martha’s vineyard family vacation

I have unofficially-officially decided that 2012 is the year of the vacation! The past few years have given me a taste of what it’s like to truly tag out of my life with those nearest and dearest to me and just… be. Somewhere new, somewhere exciting, or sleepy, or sunny or sandy… just someplace different than where I have been. This year we partnered together with some of my most favorite people in the world and rented a big ole’ house on Martha’s Vineyard for a week. You all know there are friends you have in day to day life Read More

winthrop estate lenox ma rainy day wedding

This spring- yes, spring! We had the absolute pleasure of photographing Melissa and Mark’s wedding at the beautiful Winthrop Estate in Lenox MA.

There were so many bright pink flowers to help put some color and sparkle in the day, along with our super adorable couple Melissa and Mark, of course!
Melissa’s super sleek dress was by Victoria Sdoukos and bought at her shop, Boutique Victoria in Chicago! Those sweet  pink florals were by Crocus Hale!

rustic webb barn wedding, wethersfield ct

This is exactly what the winter is for… catching up on long overdue blog posts of my favorite weddings! This particular  summer wedding at The Webb Barn seems like ages ago… back when it was over 100 degrees in July! As I am sitting here freezing in my studio, just the thought of how hot Erik, Julie and I were warms me! Or maybe it was Gigi and Joseph and their families that really make me happy when i think back on their wedding day! Gigi and Joseph are both such crafty, artistic people. Their whole wedding was made by Read More

watch hill rhode island engagement session

what better way to spend a sunny, blustery winter afternoon than on the beach with some pretty brave clients?! The best part? We were completely alone! To have this amazing stretch of beach all to ourselves was such a special treat and a welcome change of scene from all of the typical dead-ness that takes over New England in the winter. It was a crisp day with some pretty clouds- Callie and Miles and I had a great time and enjoyed the break from the holiday craziness!

 

The light was hitting us at just the right angle Read More

golden lamb buttery engagement session

These two. I don’t even KNOW!! These two crazies- aka Dawn and Justin- are two of my most favorite people on the planet. I met them almost 4 years ago? at a wedding where Justin was a groomsman and Dawn was his super fun girlfriend. As it turns out, Dawn is an art director for a big company based in Boston…and was looking for a photographer and viola! A beautiful relationship was formed! We have worked together since then, traveling the country to San Francisco and Sonoma each fall and have gotten to know each other really well. We laugh, Read More

lynn and gary’s eolia mansion at harkness state park wedding

Lynn and Gary’s wedding at Eolia Mansion at Harkness State Park in Waterford, CT was nothing short of emotional, heartfelt, super fun and just all around fabulous! Harkness State Park is one of my most favorite places to photograph. The number of different nooks and crannies that you can photograph in are basically endless, (I’m going to go out on a limb here and say:) it is hands-down one of the most magnificent places to have a wedding in all of Connecticut!! (But hey, that’s just my fancy, humble opinion!!!) Alison and I had a fantastic time shooting it!
