tented wedding in ct with jubilee events and carla ten eyck

What a WEDDING!!!  Our day was absolutely filled to the brim with such love and light and happiness from the moment we showed up to literally the moment we left! Amanda + Joe and their families were the most welcoming people ever. They made our whole team feel like a part of the day and just let their personalities and love for one another shine through. From every single detail thought out and taken care of by the lovely ladies Diana + Libby of Jubilee Events, to the literal send off with a bang (courtesy of some family friends!) Read More

nyc wedding at the pratt house with carla ten eyck

When I got the request to photograph Allie + Chris’ wedding this spring I was ecstatic! Just last summer I had the absolute pleasure to photograph Allie’s sister Kristen’s wedding at the Castle Hill Inn in Newport (you can see their full gorgeous wedding post HERE) and got to know their family really well over both of their wedding planning periods! Allie and Chris’s wedding at the Harold Pratt House in New York City was the definition of pure city elegance! They got ready at the downright gorgeous Loews Hotel in Manhattan, what a stunning place for a bride Read More

southport engagement session with carla ten eyck

Amanda + Joe and I spent a sparkly and sunny and just about perfect late afternoon together in Southport for their engagement session… we poked around corners and streets and chased the light and laughed and created some magical portraits full of laughter and their cuteness! There are many charming seaside towns along the Connecticut shoreline and Southport is one of my favorite ones to spend time photographing in!  I love the feel of the seaside without being just about the beach… And did I mention there was snuggling? So much snuggling! Never enough snuggling! All of the snuggling! There Read More

twenty year anniversary session with one of my first wedding clients

When I was but a wee lass back in 1996 and had just graduated from RIT and was studying photojournalism with the high hopes of working for a newspaper when I graduated. Wedding photography was not even on my radar. Wait. Strike that. Reverse it! .. As Willy Wonka Would say! It was on my radar but not very highly regarded. In fact, I do believe that you would be ridiculed if you ever even uttered the words ‘wedding’ and ‘photographer’ in the same sentence! So to say this was not a dream job of mine way back when Read More

mt. hope farm editorial for bliss celebrations magazine with carla ten eyck

There are publications and teams that I love working with, and these ladies are at the top of the list! My good friend Amy Blau is the publisher of one of the most super gorgeous magazines ever ever in the world AMEN! called Bliss Celebrations Magazine. When she puts an idea out there for me to collaborate on with her I immediately start drooling because I just know that what she will put in front of me will be the stuff that dreams are made of! This shoot we did at Mount Hope Farm in Rhode Island? Was no exception!!! Read More

mystic ct tented wedding with carla ten eyck

When Caity + Ryan first reached out to me to do their engagement session, it was just for that. They didn’t have firm plans for their wedding laid out and wanted to make sure they had time to get some photographs taken in the height of fall in CT and I was more than game. We met at Gouveia Vineyard in Wallingford CT (you can see their blog post here) and spent the afternoon literally frolicking around the property, laughing and shouting (with glee!) because we were so, so happy to me creating such amazing images together, it felt Read More

ocean house wedding with carla ten eyck

Jessica + Jeremy had the most intimate, perfect wedding at one of my favorite resorts, The Ocean House in Watch Hill, Rhode Island. I have done many weddings there, and they vary from the whole shebang of 150 people and all the bells and whistles to an intimate dinner for 20 or even more intimate ceremony for 6! I love the variety of celebrations I have been able to experience here, and this one is by far at the top of the list. They had their ceremony in the herb garden overlooking the ocean, and we could hear the Read More

woodbury ct autumn engagement session with carla ten eyck

I was so excited to meet up with Megan + Tim for their engagement session last fall. The day was perfect, the light was working for me and I was so inspired by the location! We poked around their property in the rolling hills of Woodbury, CT and it was just filled with so many little nooks for creating some magical images, I could barely contain myself! We got to ride around in a tractor to get to the fields and can I just say how much FUN that was?? That is so not something that I do in Read More

surprise wedding at the madison beach hotel with carla ten eyck

 
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

colorado springs wedding at the broadmoor hotel with carla ten eyck

 
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
