Eyes up, heart open
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
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
TIMELESS. A black and white photograph. There is just something I adore about looking at all the various shades of grey, white, and black that make up the frame. It’s simple, elegant, and often times it carries a deep nostalgic tangibility.
Melissa told me during a conversation, before the wedding day, that her and Craig really have a love for black and white images. While I didn’t produce the entire wedding in black and white, I chose to present this entire blog post if the monochromatic format. This is something I have thought about and been Read More
Liz and Josh were recently married at the historic Lonetown Farm Musuem in Redding, CT. It was a beautiful day to celebrate their love for each other among friends and family. Their dog, Ruby, was even incorporated in the ceremony which always makes for a fun time for all. The band was also a super unique outfit called The Blue Vipers Of Brooklyn. Enough babble, check out some of my picks from Liz and Josh’s wedding day!
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!

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
Family. This was my first experience working with, and in front of my people, my family. It was a bit surreal doing what I do for a living with characters I had already known deeply before the wedding day. I had a blast photographing my nieces wedding for many reasons and I also got to enjoy the reception because my right hand dude, Dorian, took over the photo duties so I could get down with friends and family and also be IN some of the photos for once. It was also my Dad’s 70th birthday so Read More
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
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
This wedding. Oh this was such an amazing wedding, one of my favorites really. Everyone thinks when looking at my posts that everything is just perfect on wedding day. The truth is, it was. Even if things do not go exactly as planned, you hired the best professionals who have dealt with most of the scenarios that can put a damper on your plans for a perfect day. I rarely check the forecast on wedding day anymore, what’s the point? We are going to roll with it because let’s face it, the weather plays a major role in your wedding Read More
