pond house at elizabeth park wedding

I could not have asked for a better couple to finish out my 2012 season.  Rebecca and Stephen are the type of clients who make you feel like you’ve known them for years, and working with them is less like work and more like hanging with good friends.  Both of their families welcomed me and Anna with open arms, and their good vibes and positive energy come through in each and every photo we took.  With locations like Hartford City Hall and Elizabeth Park to boot, this wedding was no doubt one of my favorites of the year.

meet my C10 studio management team

I am so excited to announce a partnership with a studio I have long admired. A few years back, Eric and Amber of RAW Photo Design burst onto the wedding photography scene. They were, and are, quite a force to be reckoned with. Although their edgy and highly stylized way of shooting is completely different from my more natural light approach, they kept me on my toes! We would collectively laugh when the same clients would meet with us both for their weddings because stylistically we are nothing alike. Our friendship grew over the years into a very deep Read More

Yale Divinity School Wedding

One of the sweetest, most intimate, and loving weddings last year took place at the Yale Divinity School!!!

saltwater farm vineyard wedding

What a perfect day MaryBeth & Joe had for their wedding!  A crisp Fall day was the backdrop for this gorgeous outdoor wedding at Saltwater Farm Vineyard.  This couple is also seriously cool, laid back, and fun too.  With rock n’ roll details and a classic black and white color scheme, how could you go wrong?  I loved that MaryBeth and Joe chose to do a first look too which allowed me plenty of time for creative portraits.

Hey, How’d you do that???

This blog post is something a little different, a little more on the nerdy/tech side for the photo geeks out there or for the peeps who appreciate photography and might want to learn a little something new.
Many of you know me from my landscapes and I am constantly trying to fuse my wedding work with my landscape style.  A few weeks back, I photographed a gorgeous wedding at Saltwater Farm Vineyard on a beautiful Fall day.  Since MaryBeth & Joe decided to do a ‘first look’, we had ample time before the ceremony for creative photos.  I love first Read More
