belle mer wedding with jubilee events and carla ten eyck

This last, blustery push that Winter is having (even though it is technically Spring now!) has me longing for the summer, with it’s long days filled with warm sun and weddings at Belle Mer with Jubilee Events! This last wedding we al collaborated on was one for the books! Libby had the most amazing team assembled for Kate and Richard’s wedding on the water as the sun set, complete with a fly over by an airplane with a sign that said ‘Congratulations on your wedding Kate + Richard!’ that literally flew over at the exact right time, just as Read More

bliss celebrations magazine styled shoot at blithewold newport

One of my favorite creative outlets I get as a photographer is doing styled shoots with my creative partners. One of my favorites is Bliss Celebrations Magazine. I have known Amy Blau, the publisher since she started the magazine, and had the absolute honor of having my work on three of their six covers. They are so loyal to me and supportive and this translates to them giving me freedom to show up at a styled shoot for their magazine with nothing but a smile on! Well, trust me, I am still rocking my nerdy fanny pack camera bag, Read More

donna morgan campaign shoot at the hamptons

Last Summer found me in the Hamptons surrounded by a team of creative professionals that I am also lucky enough to call my great friends, sisters even! This team was assembled for the second year in a row to photograph the Donna Morgan campaign, led by the amazing Kathleen McFeeters, who has come to be a dear friend of mine thanks to the Engage Luxury Business Summits! I met Kathleen in Grand Cayman as she sat for me while I was ‘portraiting’ with some of the attendees at the conference and she patiently waited for me and then we Read More

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

Mallory + Wes’ wedding at the Tokeneke Club in Darien, CT with the ever-amazing Amy Champagne Events was one for the books!

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
