Eyes up, heart open
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
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!

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
Last week I attended my ninth Engage! Luxury Business Summit conference at The Cloister on Sea Island, Georgia. I am what we refer to as a Nine Baller, and I proudly wore those nine balls around my neck until I broke my name tag with my (not so) smooth dance moves and they all went squirreling all over the dance floor, pell-mell and I sunk my head in sadness. Oh well! A girl does not need the actual nine balls to prove how in love with this conference I have become, that is a fun fact for you!
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! 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!
