Eyes up, heart open
Classic New England b&b turned stunning wedding venue, The Inn at Mount Pleasant exudes charm. The Inn is a restored 18th century farmhouse on 40+ acres of land. The property has beautiful views to the south and west. There are meadows, wooded areas, stone walls, a historic barn and trails to the Nickel Brook creek. You know, the stuff you need for a quintessential New England wedding. Bob and Maggie, the owners of the farm, are downright fantastic people. I’m relatively sure they are the one’s responsible for this ridiculous rainbow.
The creative team could not be beat. It’s so much Read More
What do I do if it rains on my wedding day? The truth is; You really only have one choice. EMBRACE IT! Listen, I know it’s a scary thought. You’ve spent endless hours and even months planning your dream wedding right down to the tiniest of details. And now it’s a week before your wedding day and you’ve been checking the wedding forecast incessantly hoping the forecast will change. Unfortunately there is nothing you can do to make inclement weather go away. What you can do is, welcome it by going with the flow. After all, is there anything more Read More
I recently had the pleasure of photographing an editorial shoot to spotlight Connecticut’s newest wedding and event venue, 19Main, in historic downtown New Milford on the green. Perched on the corner of picturesque Main & Bank Street on the green, sits 19Main, a former bank restored to all of it’s glory to now celebrate weddings and events. The building was originally built in 1903 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It features 3 original bank vaults, each one unique and amazing on their own but (get this!) the vault in the bridal suite was converted into Read More
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
After our first shoot together, Jazz and I pulled over on the side of the road to look at our images. We squealed like loonatics in my car, we were so proud. That was 4 years ago. It’s been a wild ride, guys. Filled with love, laughter, whiskey, wigs, tea, adventure, light. For the past 4 years I’ve spent my time meeting some of the most wonderful and talented friends, mentors, couples, teammates, soul mates. This isn’t goodbye, at all really. But a way to honor our silliness as my new adventure begins.
I hope you all laugh so hard, that you snort a Read More

From the training right up to the actual race, running an ultra marathon is a journey. Let’s take a step back and clarify something. A marathon is 26.2 miles. No longer, no shorter. An ultra marathon is any distance longer than 26.2 miles. Generally distances are 31 (50k,) 50 miles, 100k (62 miles), and 100 miles. There are stage races where you run set distances over the course of three days (i.e. 25, 50, 25), and there are adventure ultras (Not even remotely fun adventures).
If Yogi Berra were to describe an ultra marathon, he would say 90 percent of an Read More
A few weeks back I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Josh Rossi, creator of fulltimephotographer.com a site dedicated to helping and educating photographers looking to go and stay full time. A lot of what I do I used to do myself, until I had enough business to support bringing in a support staff of the most amazing people to help me run my studio like a well oiled bee hive! Many photographers do pretty much everything for their businesses… from taking the pictures, to designing the albums, the website, their branding, managing their studio, booking their clients, shipping Read More
Diane & Mike were recently married in a very intimate ceremony at Harrington Farm officiated by Mike’s daughters, Amy and Nicole. Diane’s daughter, Amber, was her Maid Of Honor. I love non-traditional weddings and this one was as unique as they come. After the ceremony, the families held a quaint gift exchange following a nice lunch. The afternoon was completed with a sundae bar for the guests to enjoy. Here are some of the photos from their wedding, enjoy!

No words can express how sincerely grateful I am to have been able to spend the day capturing those priceless moments when a couple “ties the knot”. But Ben and Tara’s wedding was different in so many ways and certainly one I won’t ever forget. Their private Pot Island (Part of the Thimble Islands) intimate family wedding was highly emotional, personal, and simply story tale-esque. From the fact that they only had 30 or so people attend their wedding which overlooked Long Island sound, to the undeniably positive and rock-solid bond that Ben has with his nieces and nephews. And Read More
