Carla Ten Eyck


mystic ct tented wedding with carla ten eyck

When Caity + Ryan first reached out to me to do their engagement session, it was just for that. They didn’t have firm plans for their wedding laid out and wanted to make sure they had time to get some photographs taken in the height of fall in CT and I was more than game. We met at Gouveia Vineyard in Wallingford CT (you can see their blog post here) and spent the afternoon literally frolicking around the property, laughing and shouting (with glee!) because we were so, so happy to me creating such amazing images together, it felt Read More

Lighthouse Point Park Wedding- Dorian Patrick

Gray skies, a cold wind and rain most of the day couldn’t dampen the spirits of these two Southern California kids on their wedding day at Lighthouse Point Park. Kelsea and Scott are two of the most genuinely awesome people I’ve met, not to mention had the pleasure to work with.  They are such a laid back couple they just rolled with the punches mother nature threw their way. I am such a fan of this handmade ring box. Designed and constructed by Kesea’s dad.
Mules were the name of the game and the signature drink. 
The carousel is a must Read More

ocean house wedding with carla ten eyck

Jessica + Jeremy had the most intimate, perfect wedding at one of my favorite resorts, The Ocean House in Watch Hill, Rhode Island. I have done many weddings there, and they vary from the whole shebang of 150 people and all the bells and whistles to an intimate dinner for 20 or even more intimate ceremony for 6! I love the variety of celebrations I have been able to experience here, and this one is by far at the top of the list. They had their ceremony in the herb garden overlooking the ocean, and we could hear the Read More

Styled Wedding Shoot at 19Main – New Milford, CT. by Dave Noonan

Check out this new wedding inspired styled shoot I photographed with CT’s most talented team of wedding professionals.  These types of shoots are super fun for all as it allows the top local wedding vendors to showcase their talents and have some fun together in the off season.  This shoot features models Viviann, and Nyiah from The Beauty Within Model Management.  We shot the series at one of my new favorite venues, 19Main in New Milford, CT on a Sunday afternoon this Spring.  Of course, my garage built 1970 Honda Brat vintage motorcycle makes a little cameo with bride, Viviann, Read More

surprise wedding at the madison beach hotel with carla ten eyck

There are very few things in my line of work that have surprised me, really. I mean, when you photograph weddings regularly you pretty much have seen it all! But. When you get a call from a couple who are planning on surprising their families with a wedding when they think they are just showing up for dinner together? Well, that is something new and I am all over it!
Nick + Brit had everything planned- and we talked a bit about how they were going to tell her Mom. They knew how mad she would be if Read More

Nicole and Steve’s Marquee Wedding – Hartford, CT

Ah Hartford. The good and the bad it has become my city. And one my favorite spots is the former G.Fox building. As a kid I remember visiting the building, which had sat vacant for sometime, but around Halloween time each year it was transformed into a haunted house. It’s a far cry from that now. It’s home to a community college and the city’s Board of Education office. But, the gem of the historic landmark, is The Marquee– a venue that seems written out of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby.
This was the setting for Nicole and Read More

Jenny & Jim’s Blooming Hill Farm Wedding – Blooming Grove NY – by Dave Noonan

Jenny and Jim were married at one of my all time favorite venues, Blooming Hill Farm, last Fall.  What makes it it such a cool venue?  How about local fresh farm to table ingredients for all of their meals, a beautiful rustic farmy atmosphere,  an incredible backlit sunset for portraits, and an amazing owner and staff.  The images speak for themselves for sure so I won’t drone on and bore you with all of the details.  Jenny and Jim are a great couple and their family and guests were all amazing as well!  Special thanks to my good friend and Read More

colorado springs wedding at the broadmoor hotel with carla ten eyck

I met Christina + Nick during their engagement session at Yale a while back, knowing that they would be marrying in Colorado the next June, but they were all set for a photographer. They wanted to poke around Yale and give it a last go-round, as they would be moving to Colorado after graduating, and I was more than happy to be a part of their farewell tour to a place they called home. After our session, they loved their images so much, and had so much fun laughing and popping all over New Haven together that they Read More

wedding in rockleigh nj with carla ten eyck

I first met up with Lindsey almost two years before her wedding. We ‘met’ on the phone, as most of my clients and I do these days, and instantly hit it off! We talked for a few hours and could have literally still been on the phone if we didn’t have to hang up. I’m serious! Lindsey has such a passion and love of the arts, and works for a really amazing company called The Caliber Collection, that uses serial number from illegal guns and metal from shell casings to create a unique line of products. They donates 20% of the net Read More

Sara & Mike’s Backyard Wedding in Goshen, CT

My oh my am I excited to share this little gem with you. I really clicked with Sara and Mike the first time we met. Maybe it’s because me and my husband are another Sara(h) and Mike team too. Maybe it was just because they are such chill and awesome people. Last September these two through an amazing Backyard Wedding at Sara’s childhood home in Goshen. Her mom keeps AMAZING gardens and the space just goes on and on. It was honestly such a perfect evening.
In spending time with their families, it was very clear that Sara is Read More
