Winter St. Clements Castle Wedding Preview with Carla Ten Eyck

Oh, yesterday. I am still processing my feelings from Rachel and Gabby’s wedding but am so excited to share a few of the images from their super emotional, super amazing day.  Gabby and Rachel are the most eloquent writers, their vows just about blew the roof off the church, there was not a dry eye in sight. I was literally stopped in my tracks to the point where I set my camera down so I could absorb the words better. I felt completely transformed. I plan on writing so much more when I post their full post here so Read More

bee and thistle wedding old lyme ct

Brianna and Sam were married at one of my very favorite Connecticut venues, The Bee and Thistle Inn in Old Lyme on a gorgeous Saturday in September. It was threatening to rain most of the day, and the skies were gloomy and dark and dramatic, and while I kind of loved the light it was giving us for our portraits I was sending little prayers to the universe to please just let them get married outside by the river like they had envisioned since booking this charming spot for their wedding! We had planned the schedule with perfection and Read More

Backyard CT Beach Wedding with Carla Ten Eyck

When I heard my friend Chris was engaged I was so excited. Not only for the fact that he has been Hartford’s most eligible bachelor for like, ever, but also because a party by the Peters family is always a good time, and I knew this one would be one for the books. I’ve known Chris since I was in fifth grade and became instant besties with his cousin Bethany, who is still one of my very best friends to this day, 34 years ago. So we have been through some things in our lives together, as you can Read More

I met Tosh while photographing a wedding at her place of business, The Bee + Thistle Inn in Old Lyme CT and from that experience on we knew it was a love like no other.

Same Sex Wedding at the Pond House Cafe with Carla Ten Eyck

When Stacy reached out to me for her wedding to Jenese, I was beyond excited. Not only was I pumped that I was available for it (I was not for her first wedding) but also because she had found her true love. I knew it as soon as I saw them both together. They just… clicked. The way they looked at one another, the way they were so gentle with each other, how easily they laughed with one another. It’s the stuff that I can’t wait to have , but delight in seeing my friends, clients and family have. Read More

Backyard CT Tented Wedding with a Puppy Surprise

This amazing backyard tented wedding in Glastonbury CT was perfect in so many ways, the weather was hand picked from my list of perfect weather for weddings and there was a PUPPY SURPRISE! Let’s start with the weather… The last time I had been at their home, where the wedding was, it was for their engagement session, you can see it HERE. Unfortunately it down poured like crazy, so I wasn’t able to see their yard in its full glory, although I still created some romantic imagery with them both. Their wedding day made up for that in spades! Read More

Classic Branford House Wedding with Carla Ten Eyck Part One

This classic Branford House wedding with the crazy talented ladies that are Jubilee Events was so filled with beauty and amazing-ness I had to do a two-part blog post!

They had been living the long distance dream for a while and this was the only quiet time they had with Read More

Latitude 41 Mystic Seaport Wedding with Coastal Gourmet and Carla Ten Eyck

After fifteen years of photographing weddings, I have come to the conclusion that intimate weddings are something super special. A small, curated group of the most meaningful members of your life, all there supporting your choice to join your life to your partners life, just gives me the feels. Each person is hand picked to be there, each person has a unique and special connection to the couple. There is nothing quite like it! Peter and Tori had such a powerful and loving connection with one another before the wedding and especially on the wedding day. When they Read More
