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

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

wedding in old saybrook ct with carla ten eyck

A fall wedding in Connecticut is one of those things that just about makes me sing inside! Add to it a couple in love, warm afternoon light, crisp fall air, gorgeous flowers and happy family + friends and I am just about over the moon excited! Elena + David epitomize my clients in the exact way that you simply cannot pigeon-hole who my ‘typical’ client is! I love people in love! And lucky for me, they love me too…! Couples who value photography, and value the time it can take to create beautiful imagery are my ideal, if I Read More

love is love: new haven lawn club same sex wedding with carla ten eyck

Chris + Tyler and their clan of crazy fun family and friends (some of which I consider my own Family) partied the day away with so much emotion, love, laughing and dancing at The New Haven Lawn Club in New Haven CT. I met Chris years before when I photographed his sister (and my now family and ride or die) Liz + Greg’s wedding. She was married on my 10th wedding anniversary, and decided to have the wedding she did because her Dad was fighting a valiant fight with cancer. He ended up losing his fight after years of being Read More

saybrook point inn wedding with carla ten eyck

Matthew + Allison had the most stress-free, gorgeous wedding day at The Saybrook Point Inn and Spa in Old Saybrook CT. Joel and I had the best time with their outgoing wedding party- there were fun socks, man buns and Fireball to spare! Allison was the most laid-back and trusting bride and we pretty much floated through the day with big smiles and breaks for burrowing our faces in the absolutely over the top crazy beautiful bouquets..! Can you even?? Hello Jennifer from Fleur de Lys!! Not only is she a great friend of mine but also a super Read More

artists for humanity wedding in boston with carla ten eyck and whim events

This blog post has been a long time coming! It was two years ago that Kristin + John tied the knot in Boston at one of the coolest venues I have worked at, The Artists for Humanity building in Boston. It is filled with character, gorgeous light and artwork for days and made just the most epic space for me to spend a day capturing the love that these two have for one another! Their event design was flawless and coordinated so many personal touches mixed with vibrant color! I loved discovering all of the little visual treats Kristin Read More

Glastonbury Boathouse Wedding with Carla Ten Eyck

Last fall, I had the pleasure of photographing Galini and Brian at Hartford City Hall on a crisp fall day, when the sun was still warm in the sky and the leaves were just starting to flutter elegantly to the ground. You can see their engagement post HERE! That afternoon I got to see first hand how kind and gentle they were with one another. I saw how respectful they were, and then how easily they could make the other laugh. Watching these interactions is always a special peek for me, and gives me something to look forward to Read More

wolffer estate vineyard wedding in the hamptons with carla ten eyck

I met Robyn + Richie through a mutual friend who we both adore, shortly before their wedding. They were getting married in the Hamptons and I just so happened to have their day available! Boom! It was a done deal before it was a done deal. They trusted our friend Kathleen to know we would be a fit, and man oh man was she right! Since their absolutely gorgeous and perfect wedding day, I have grown close to Robyn + Richie and have seen them many times since (even for Kathleen’s wedding a few months back!) This two had Read More
