Eyes up, heart open
Eric and Dani celebrated their wedding day at Gallaher Mansion at Cranbury Park recently with their wonderful family and friends. The day was perfect and the energy and mood was awesome too. The groom is an art director so he actually designed the custom signs throughout the venue and all of the invitations and paper. At the end of the reception we were graced with a little bit of rain that allowed for one of my signature style atmospheric portraits. Like I’ve said a million times; if it rains on your wedding day, embrace it and have fun! You will Read More
Who says you can’t have an amazing DIY wedding on a budget? Elizabeth and Megan sure debunked that myth, that’s for sure. With friends from all over the country pitching in to decorate, helping with planning, and setting up everything themselves at the venue, that is how it’s done! Complete with handpicked Connecticut wildflowers, a taco bar, lots of love from family and friends, and natural chemistry from this amazing couple, this wedding was smashing and heartfelt. When I have couples like Elizabeth and Megan, my job becomes so much easier as you can truly see with their strong connection Read More
Melissa and Justin recently celebrated their love for one another at the beautiful Lord Thompson Manor in Thompson, CT. Melissa started her day getting ready at The Spa at The Cottage House (I love the light there!) while Justin prepared at The Manor. I really enjoyed the energy of this wedding, so many smiles, laughs, and happy tears! What a great couple to work with as well as a sweet group of family and friends they have there to support them. Sit back and enjoy some of the images from their wedding day!
Shauna & Mike celebrated their love for each other at The Old Field Club in East Setauket, NY. Their wedding was sprinkled with unique elements including a traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony, which was super cool for me to photograph because everyone was dressed in traditional Chinese attire. They had a Polaroid camera on hand all day long too that guests used to document the festivities, along with a display of the instant prints at the reception. This was such a fun couple, here are some of their photographs of their awesome wedding day!
Last week I had the absolute pleasure of working in Cancun at Nizuc Hotel, Resort, and Spa with an amazing team of photographers Lead by the one and only Carla Ten Eyck. We were the official photography team of Engage!15, the premier conference for wedding industry leaders around the world. The experience was overwhelming and it was a ton of hard work but I will cherish the friendships I made with these amazing people. While there, I spent some hours going back to my roots and enjoyed creating some landscape images of the unique Nizuc Pier. There is so much Read More
Heidi and Michael are both classically trained musicians and they met in NYC, while studying music in college. It’s apparent that music is a gigantic force in their lives, in fact they hand picked all of the songs performed throughout their wedding day. I had the pleasure of working with these two (and their amazing and kind family) a few weeks back in Brooklyn on a beautiful Saturday. It was sunny all day but there was a small chance of rain, which happened to show itself at the end of the night and it allowed me the opportunity for Read More
When I read the questionnaire that Kelly filled out in our initial contact form, I knew right away that her and Colin were my people. It was filled with sarcasm, wit, and a little bit of saltiness. When I read further and she mentioned The Big Lebowski and more importantly, The Dude, I knew I had to meet them. I was right, they are a rad couple! I am so grateful to all of my couples that find me because I’m so lucky that when I connect with them on this level it’s makes my job a dream! I could Read More
I had such a blast photographing Kristi & Vince’s wedding, when they originally inquired with me I was already booked on their wedding date. It was a huge honor for me when they actually moved their wedding date just so I would be their photographer on their big day, wow! They were married in my hometown of New Milford, CT where I had some cool locations in mind (what’s up trestle bridge!) that I had always wanted to shoot for wedding day portraits. With a great wedding party, some of whom were already friends of mine, the mood was light Read More
Jess and Rob were recently married on their gorgeous family farm in Pawcatcuck, CT. This wedding was absolutely phenomenal in every way, amazing couple, beautiful details, excellent weather, and the atmosphere was rustic and charming. When my couples have chemistry like this, it makes my job easy. You can just feel their love through the photos. Many of the details were handmade by the family seen throughout the event including all the quilts and little touches sprinkled in. A vintage Studebaker truck served as the beer truck, what!?!?!? The event was designed by Sarah Taggart of A Polished Plan and Read More
Allison and Dan were recently married at Lake Of Isles in North Stonington, CT. The weather was perfect, the mood was just right, and there was plenty love in the air. After getting ready at the Grand Pequot Tower, we moved onto the ceremony at St. Patrick’s Church in Mystic, followed by formal portraits in beautiful downtown Mystic. Here are some of my favorite moments from their wedding day. Enjoy! The Team:
