family portrait beach session with carla ten eyck

Aren’t we all feeling a little wistful for summer? I know I am, as much as I love fall in New England, man do I!! But I feel like this summer just..happened! And POOF it’s done and gone…! This summer I had the joy of spending a late afternoon on the beach with a friend and colleague, Cheyney and her adorable family. I had photographed her sister-in-law’s wedding a while back and remembered how adorable I thought Cheyney’s children were… so to be able to have some one on one time with them was a blast! And at my Read More

Nautical Newport Engagement Session with Carla Ten Eyck

Hold on to your hats everyone, and get ready for some chemistry and love and just an overload of handsome! And boats! Big boats, small boats, some champagne and a sunset! And maybe some bourbon…. maybe! When I got the first email from Mike about his upcoming wedding to Michael (yes, Michael + Mike!) I was over the moon. I mean, come on! They are photography lovers, and are dancing the night away at one of the most elegant venues, Castle Hill Inn in Newport Rhode Island! Add to that their love of design and all things beautiful and Read More

Wedding at The Ocean House in Watch Hill with Carla Ten Eyck

One of the perks of traveling a lot is getting to see some pretty amazing places all over, many in the far corners of the world! But even better than that is when one of those amazing places is so close to home..! One of my favorite spa resorts  is The Ocean House in Watch Hill, Rhode Island… and any opportunity to photograph there is something I get so excited to do!
When Deb + Frank contacted me to photograph their wedding this summer I was over the moon… not only was it at one of my favorite places but Read More

Zeke and Po’s publicity shoot with Carla Ten Eyck

One of the things that I love is the ability to have just super open just flat out fun with my camera and my friends and their friends and for reasons other than fun but for actual, like REASONS! Take these two- Zeke and Po! Zeke is basketball legend Isaiah Thomas’ son and a breakthrough DJ paired up with Po, a reality TV star / singer who recently collaborated on a track called ‘Monsters (Be Brave)‘. So logically they needed some publicity shots of them together and when asked by my good friend Ed of Gorilla Records to do the Read More

Back to Basics Photography Workshop with Carla Ten Eyck

This September I dove back in to something I love second to photography: teaching photography! A long, long while back, I started teaching monthly workshops on a variety of topics ranging from the camera basics to lighting to posing to how to shoot details to the business of photography. There is so much to being a photographer. So much to even just doing this for fun, let alone as the main source of income for your family! There are so many ways to see, so many ways to interpret your subject and your idea and I just LOVE helping Read More

gershon fox marquee hartford wedding with carla ten eyck

Scott + Allie’s wedding at The Gershon Fox Room / Marquee Hartford this summer was something that I had been waiting a long time for…! A year before, I had conspired with Scott on their actual engagement… we secured a location (The Rose Garden in Elizabeth Park in Hartford!), timing, the plan for the day, all of it! It all went off without a hitch, everything was perfect! I felt so connected to them both during this entire process since I was there from the very beginning, and to tell you I couldn’t wait for their wedding was an Read More

yale engagement in new haven CT with carla ten eyck

Before leaving Yale for good and making their big move out west to the rolling mountains of Colorado, Christina and Nick wanted to say goodbye to their home and most importantly Yale before heading out! So we meandered around the campus to places that meant something to them both- dorms, secret hallways, libraries, halls… it was so much fun to explore this beautiful old campus, riddled with history and stories, but most importantly their memories with each other. I love hearing how people met, when they knew that they were ‘the one’… I am a romantic at heart and Read More

downtown hartford elopement by carla ten eyck

Intimate, mid-week weddings seem to be my JAM this summer!! Not sure how or why… but I’ll take it!  There is something so…dare I say intimate..? ha ha about them! That I am only one of three people or less present at such a big day is something so special to me. The focus becomes so much more on the couple, their vows and the sheer act of getting married. Lauren and Patrick were married on their actual Anniversary of August 1 in a city they, and I, love to pieces.. downtown Hartford, CT. Hartford is one of the Read More

intimate summer woodland wedding by carla ten eyck

When I first met Lauryn and CJ, they showed up at my workshop to be my models for the day for a posing workshop I was teaching. I knew right from the start that they had something special together… the way they looked at each other, how kind and gentle they were with one another…it was so beautiful to watch! To add to this…? They were absolute magic in front of my camera! So comfortable, so relaxed… they just knew what to do! I offered little to no guidance- well, except for the fact that I was teaching an Read More

new photography workshops with carla ten eyck fall 2014

It feels weird to see how long of a hiatus I have take from teaching. After teaching for almost 7 years, every month straight! Especially when in the throes of teaching I am in my element- happy, alive, challenged, excited, electric, pumped, and just… at home. On some level my whole life I knew I wanted to teach, but never felt at home in a classroom. I hated the pressure of papers and tests and having to sit still! Although man I loved the smell of chalk on the chalk board! Except when it would squeak, then I didn’t enjoy Read More
