Carla Ten Eyck


maternity session with carla ten eyck

One of my favorite things about my job is being able to reconnect with my clients after their wedding. Many times it’s through social media, I see they got a new house, or they moved to another part of the country. Maybe they changed jobs or changed careers. And many times, it’s them having a baby. When the stars align and I am able to photograph my brides pregnant, it just makes me so happy.
Sarah and Mike are two of my all-star faves. Like. Legit. They are always good for cracking a joke, spouting off gangster rap lyrics Read More

portsmouth new hampshire engagement with carla ten eyck

When Kate + Richard said they wanted to do their engagement session in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, I was like … whaaaaat! That means an aggressive yes, as this little gem of a town on the coast of New Hampshire was always on my radar as a place I wanted to visit! I only wish I could have stayed longer and poked around the shops, eaten at like ALL of the adorable little restaurants that dotted the windy streets… it was the cutest little spot to go and I am so glad that we shot there! Kate, Richard and I Read More

Spotlight on CT’s Newest Wedding & Event Venue – 19Main – New Milford, CT. by Dave Noonan

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

silver sands engagement session with carla ten eyck

There is no time I enjoy more than the tail end of summer, right as fall starts to kick in and change the leaves, and the temperatures, and our mindset as we start preparing for fall and the holidays. It’s when kids go back to school, boots start coming back into our daily wardrobe and sweaters make their way out of the closets. I love this time of year so much, and any chance I get to be outside and enjoy a warm day with clients on the beach, well. That is just the icing on my seasonal cake! Read More

Engage 15 Nizuc Riviera Maya with Carla Ten Eyck

What started off as a spur of the moment, let me grab you and create a portrait of you because I am super inspired and I can’t control myself whim, has morphed into an official offering at my most favorite industry event, the Engage Luxury Wedding Summit that happens every six months in high-end resorts all over the globe! That entire sentence made me so happy to even think about in private, let alone have it be something that is actually a reality…! I still can’t believe that I get to attend each Engage not only as an attendee Read More

engagement session at the ocean house with carla ten eyck

One of the weddings I am looking forward to photographing so much this year has got to be Christopher + Tyler’s. And not just because the countdown has been more dramatic and drawn out than say, Kim and Kanye’s! Because that has been super fun to watch on Facebook (since we are all friends and we ‘like’ each other’s gym pics!) But it’s also because I get to see Chris’ family again, all together celebrating. I met Chris in 2010 when I photographed his sister, my home girl for life, Liz Krankowitz. No. That is not her real name Read More

portland wedding at barn at walnut hill with carla ten eyck

I met Vanessa a few years back at one of the most amazing industry conferences there is, called Engage Luxury Wedding Summits. We circled around each other for a few conferences before really seeing what great friends we were going to become. You know how that is when you make friends in the industry, you try to maintain some level of professionalism and fanciness and do the square dance of .. professionalism and fanciness! Well, we do-si-do’d right into bestie country when she stepped in and designed and printed the beautiful prayer card for my good friend and employee Read More

forty year anniversary session on the beach with carla ten eyck

While vacationing at The Caribbean Club on Grand Cayman (one of my most favorite places in the world..!!!), I was able to spend some time with an industry friend of mine who I met last year at two conferences –  Grow Brand Camp  in Maine and Engage!  in Cayman – Linda Mitchell of Luxury Travel Pro. Linda specializes in luxury concierge services in both Cayman and Bermuda (not a bad gig!!) and was celebrating her wedding anniversary to her super adorable husband Ken of FORTY YEARS!!!
Not sure if that kinda big time match sunk in with you all…I said, and I Read More

harkness park engagement session with carla ten eyck

Last end of summer / fall (my most favorite in between season in New England!) I got to spend a warm and beautiful afternoon with Kirsten + Thomas at one of my favorite places to create images for both weddings and portrait sessions Harkness Park in Waterford CT. It’s the best combination of gardens and beach and a mansion! What could be better than that? Especially when the gardens are just about exploding with blooms, and the sun is setting in the most magnificent spots and then Kirsten + Thomas were just both so… laughy and expressive and gave Read More

hopkins vineyard vow renewal with carla ten eyck

March 16th may have just seemed like an ordinary Monday to some, but to our Connecticut wedding vendor community it was a super special and beautiful day. On this Monday, we gathered around one of ours in a tight, cozy group to help her and hers celebrate their 10 year wedding anniversary. Ever since I met Val, she lamented over how she and her husband Jack didn’t get the amazing wedding photographs from their wedding. As a wedding photographer herself now, I can’t imagine how awful that must feel. Beyond that, life has thrown their family some pretty big Read More
