Eyes up, heart open
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
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
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 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
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
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
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
There is nothing quite like a wedding in Connecticut in the Fall… can’t you almost just smell the crisp air and hear the leaves crackle under your feet as you walk? I am a CT girl through, and through and when I tell you there is nothing quite like it… trust me! Sarah and Peter got married at the Heritage Hotel in Southbury CT on a drizzly Autumn day which did not dampen our spirits at all! In fact, it actually added to the romantic feel of the portraits and made them a little more romantic, in my opinion… Read More
Thank you all for the kind welcome to Carla’s team. I’m so excited to be working with a friend who happens to be a pretty kick ass photographer. While I may be new to the C10 team, I’m not new to weddings (2001) or Connecticut (1983).
For the next few weeks I’m going to highlight some of my favorite weddings, venues, and couples. Lauren and Jeff are kicking things off with their stunning wedding last summer. No detail was left to chance as Lauren was one of the most organized brides I have ever met! From the relaxed start Read More
Castle Hill Inn, in Newport Rhode Island, is quickly turning into one of my most favorite wedding venues to photograph at…! From the amazing staff there (who doesn’t love Jeremy?) to the epic, sweeping views of the river, to the killer sunsets you are treated to like the best gift from above… I mean honestly, why wouldn’t you want to work here? Kristen and Matt had the most perfect day for their outdoor wedding at Castle Hill. We had the wonderful Stephanie Frasier-Grimm from Couture Parties in Newport as our spirit guide for the whole event and we Read More
