“I’ve loved you since I called you lovely on the beach.”
“I’ve loved you since you sang Gangster’s Paradise.”
If I could spend every single day at the Golden Lamb Buttery with Zach and Jess, I would. Their day was filled with the sweetest vows, minty bouquets, local honey ice cream, hayrides, family, and laughter.  We were kindred spirits, and photographing this sweet wedding was right up my alley. I wish I could go back.
Zach and Jess, I can’t wait to hear all about your adventures together!  Thank you for having us along for the day, it was lovely, just like you.
Special thanks to Read More

downtown hartford elopement by carla ten eyck

Intimate, mid-week weddings seem to be my JAM this summer!! Not sure how or why… but I’ll take it!  There is something so…dare I say intimate..? ha ha about them! That I am only one of three people or less present at such a big day is something so special to me. The focus becomes so much more on the couple, their vows and the sheer act of getting married. Lauren and Patrick were married on their actual Anniversary of August 1 in a city they, and I, love to pieces.. downtown Hartford, CT. Hartford is one of the Read More
