classic hartford wedding with carla ten eyck

Carly + James are two of the most easy going and fun clients turned friends I have had in my years of working as a photographer! Easy with a laugh for me and my super corny jokes (I’m here till Thursday, try the veal!) Add to this the fact that Mr. James just loves to have his picture taken and flip me over, I am DONE! We had all of that and the best creative partners for the day- my bestie Beth Chapman provided the amazing lace gown that Miss Carly absolutely rocked! Then! Oh! The floral goodness that Read More

mystic seaport wedding with coastal gourmet and carla ten eyck

Emily + Brad were two of the most laid-back and go with the flow people I have met, which I can’t lie is like the cherry on top of my favorite type of client. People can love my work, or love me, or be so fun and energetic or kind and thoughtful on the phone when we meet, but the wedding day, as we all know, can bring out all kind of emotions! Add rain to that mix and Lord knows what can happen to the emotions of all involved on a wedding day! The one thing I love Read More

wedding at south farms with carla ten eyck and sixpence for your shoe

Jessica and Chris had their wedding, designed and planned by Nicole (Jessica’s sister!) at Sixpence for Your Shoe – at one of the coolest venues in CT- South Farms in Morris. From the beautiful rustic interior to the rolling hills and fields that surround the property, this place is just a magical space to celebrate your wedding or event! Especially in October, I am not sure I could pick a more magical month! The colors of the foliage, the feel of almost rain the whole day, to the palpable love, excitement, and revelry that was in the air just made for Read More

autumn ct wedding with carla ten eyck

When I met Kris + Brian, I knew I found two people who value photography on such a level that I just knew we were a match! They were happy to give me all the time I needed- and more! to ensure I have plenty of time, and the right light to create images they will treasure for years to come. They gave me a preview of what I could expect with them at the engagement session at Harkness Park in Waterford a while back, and to say that I was excited for their wedding is an understatement! Normally Read More

same sex wedding at lord thompson manor with carla ten eyck

Brendan + Ryan were married this fall at Lord Thompson Manor, one of my very favorite places in Connecticut to work, of so many reasons. The way they treat everyone just makes me never feel like I am ‘working’ it feels more like a family all pulling together for our friends. Brendan + Ryan are also two of the most open and loving people, with such style and attention to detail it made my heart and eyes sing so loud! No detail was left out- and between these two lovelies and the staff at the Manor AND the ladies Read More

I knew when I met Paige and Geoff we were going to be a great fit- for many reasons. Yeah, they are in love, and so sweet to one another and their wedding at the Longmeadow Country Club this summer was awesome in so many ways! But tell em that Paige doesn’t remind you of Lucille Ball? Can I get an amen!? Paige is so funny and expressive and so incredibly fun to photograph!! Each image has something touching or funny about it- I mean who high fives people as they walk down the aisle to their groom? PAIGE! Read More

tokeneke club wedding in darien ct with amy champagne events + carla ten eyck

Mallory + Wes’ wedding at the Tokeneke Club in Darien, CT with the ever-amazing Amy Champagne Events was one for the books! Not only was it THE hottest day, like ever, but it was also the most beautiful. The day was filled with so much laughing (Wes and his groomsmen were like a pack of puppies in the best way) there was hugging for everyone, and men crying at emotional and moving moments and uniforms and gorgeous flowers by Carrie Wilcox!  The venue was one of the most interesting places to work in. It has a retractable roof!! and Read More

inn at woodstock wedding with carla ten eyck

 
When I get the entrusted to photograph a colleague’s wedding it is one of the highest highs for me. Like, what a total compliment that a fellow industry friend wants my take on their big day! I have known Hope for quite a while now. We have collaborated on many styled shoots, on real weddings and on shoots for my book (The White Dress in Color: Inspiration for the Modern Bride– available on Amazon, y’all!) and also for our second book, due out next year! But Hope and I have an even deeper connection. Our previous marriages ended around Read More

wedding at the webb barn with carla ten eyck

 

When I met Stephanie and Mike at my studio I knew instantly that we were going to make a great team! They are so open and in love and able to just be themselves with me, I knew it would be a photography-power-team-home-run! And after looking through this post, I am sure you will agree! Add to this our creative team of some of my favorite people in the industry (I always feel so so lucky when I have a lineup like this!) an absolutely gorgeous day, and we were just destined to have a spectacular time!

Cancun Mexico Wedding with Carla Ten Eyck

This July I had the honor of photographing my cousin Stephanie + Greg’s wedding in Cancun, Mexico. It was so much fun to bring my family there with me, and to see them partake in the festivities that, in my normal day to day world, is considered ‘work.’ It was a welcome break from reality for me to refocus my perspective and be a part of the fun, while photographing it at the same time. Surreal, for sure! There is a distance that a camera can create for you as a photographer…. a much needed buffer where, when brought Read More
