Eyes up, heart open
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
Matthew + Allison had the most stress-free, gorgeous wedding day at The Saybrook Point Inn and Spa in Old Saybrook CT. Joel and I had the best time with their outgoing wedding party- there were fun socks, man buns and Fireball to spare! Allison was the most laid-back and trusting bride and we pretty much floated through the day with big smiles and breaks for burrowing our faces in the absolutely over the top crazy beautiful bouquets..! Can you even?? Hello Jennifer from Fleur de Lys!! Not only is she a great friend of mine but also a super Read More
This blog post has been a long time coming! It was two years ago that Kristin + John tied the knot in Boston at one of the coolest venues I have worked at, The Artists for Humanity building in Boston. It is filled with character, gorgeous light and artwork for days and made just the most epic space for me to spend a day capturing the love that these two have for one another! Their event design was flawless and coordinated so many personal touches mixed with vibrant color! I loved discovering all of the little visual treats Kristin Read More
From the get go, I knew MikeSkelly was my people. Unless he was completely nuts. It could really go either way… The subject line of his initial contact email was “Please shoot my future Wife”. These two amazing humans who I’m now honored to call my friends spent the 31st of July at Saint Clement’s Castle in Portland confirming for the outside world what they had long known. They are the absolute perfect matches for one another.
I’m going to let them tell their origin story as only they can.
it started with hashtags. their mutual sarcasm and love Read More
Last fall, I had the pleasure of photographing Galini and Brian at Hartford City Hall on a crisp fall day, when the sun was still warm in the sky and the leaves were just starting to flutter elegantly to the ground. You can see their engagement post HERE! That afternoon I got to see first hand how kind and gentle they were with one another. I saw how respectful they were, and then how easily they could make the other laugh. Watching these interactions is always a special peek for me, and gives me something to look forward to Read More
I met Robyn + Richie through a mutual friend who we both adore, shortly before their wedding. They were getting married in the Hamptons and I just so happened to have their day available! Boom! It was a done deal before it was a done deal. They trusted our friend Kathleen to know we would be a fit, and man oh man was she right! Since their absolutely gorgeous and perfect wedding day, I have grown close to Robyn + Richie and have seen them many times since (even for Kathleen’s wedding a few months back!) This two had Read More
