Lighthouse Point Park Wedding New Haven CT

Danielle and Victor’s intimate wedding at Lighthouse Point Park in New Haven CT was amazing. The weather was so perfect I kept pinching myself to make sure it was real. Can you look at those blue skies? For Danielle and Victor to be able to have their wedding during this Covid pandemic on such a brilliant and perfect day felt like a gift, for us all. This year has been hard, for me, my family, my business, my clients, so many people. Having these intimate micro weddings feels like sunshine on my face after a long, hard cold rain. Read More

Intimate Backyard Wedding

Lauren and Brian’s intimate wedding in Brian’s parent’s back yard, was the perfect way to spend a gorgeous Saturday! Like many of my couples this year, Lauren and Brian have had many ups and downs with postponing their bigger celebration until 2021. Also like many of my clients, they have decided to get married this year, and move their bigger wedding celebrations to the following year, when things will, hopefully- fingers crossed! be much safer for us all.
Long before Covid-19 struck I have been wanting more intimate weddings on my calendar. They are so… for lack of a Read More

Chatfield Hollow Inn CT Engagement Session

Alexa and Alex’s golden hour engagement session at The Chatfield Hollow Inn in Killingworth CT was incredibly magical! I arrived a little early to The Chatfield Hollow Inn and the sky was ominous; while one side featured bright blue sky with big puffy clouds the other side was dark grey and a little scary looking! A guest at The Chatfield Hollow Inn stopped when she saw me and said rain was about 7 minutes away, so I took a deep breath and started scoping the area looking for reprieve from the impending storm.
One of the things many of Read More

Lake Waramaug CT Engagement Session

Lake Waramaug in New Preston CT is one of the most special places for an engagement session! I hadn’t been there for years, but when my clients Rachel and Glenn suggested it for their engagement session a few weeks back, I was instantly on board. I remembered it being peaceful and quintessential Connecticut. Not only that, but the location that Rachel and Glenn chose was super special to Glenn. He and his family have worked at the beach club on Lake Waramaug for years, so literally every nook and cranny of the space carried memories. The beach club on Read More

The Greenbrier Dorothy Draper and Color

Before working at The Greenbrier in West Virginia I had never heard of it before. Ever since learning about The Greenbrier a part of me has not stopped thinking about it. Perhaps it’s mostly for The Greenbrier’s absolutely insanely beautiful and colorful and daring decor by famed interior designer Dorothy Draper.
When I stepped foot inside The Greenbrier, my heart stopped for a second, then absolutely IMPLODED inside of my chest. WOW! I had never been inside such an inspiring and whimsical space. It was fancy, but so so fun. I felt out of place but so at home Read More

Rustic Micro Wedding

Rayne and Colin’s micro wedding during the current Covid-19 pandemic was about as perfect as a wedding could be. After photographing weddings for almost 20 years, I have made my way around the wedding dance floor, so to speak. Their wedding was absolute perfection. It was laid back and relaxed, despite the impending rain and nerves surrounding having an event during a pandemic. How could that be possible, you might ask. I would have to say that Rayne and Colin just wanted to be married. They met on the campus of Wheaton College (where my son is headed to Read More

Engage Summits Kensington Palace

The final day of the Engage Luxury Wedding and Business Summit was hosted at the historical Kensington Palace in London. Kensington Palace is one of those spaces in the world that I honestly never thought I would visit, let alone have backstage access to! What a treat to be able to work in such a grand space as Kensington Palace in London. Literally a dream come true, was a bold enough to even dream it in the first place!
My great friend Sarah Haywood produced such an over the top event this entire week, I was blown away by Read More

Summer Milford CT Engagement Session

Lauren and Anthony’s Milford CT engagement session was amazing! Despite the heat, they happily snuggled and enjoyed some sense of normalcy surrounding their wedding during their socially distant engagement session. After not being able to work, and even now, this isn’t really working… it felt so normal to get back ┬áinto the flow together. We met at their boat dock in Milford and popped around the docks and area for the amazing view. Thankfully there was a nice breeze on the water while we established some comfort together! I always explain to my couples that the first few minutes Read More

Engage Summits Banqueting House London

Day two of the Engage Luxury Wedding and Business Summit in London was maybe my favorite day. For lunch we got to enjoy an amazing lunch at the Rosewood London while the Juke Joints strolled around serenading us! I had the pleasure of meeting these gentleman this past summer in August on the Belmont Royal Scotsman as we journeyed across Scotland for a week long 50th birthday adventure produced by Sarah Haywood. My first introduction to these fellas was after a rainy hike through rolling hills filled with heather in bloom. We returned to the train platform with waiters Read More
