saybrook point in wedding with carla ten eyck

 

When I walked into the suite where Courtney was getting ready I just about fell over. She was absolutely GORGEOUS and her gown just about knocked me off my feet! Way to go Amsale! It was the best way to start their day and I was in it and beyond excited to spend the day with Courtney and Pete and their families! Despite the rain which seemed to follow us from their engagement session (no matter! we still got amazing photos!) we had a wonderful time showcasing the weather and how in love both Courtney and Pete are Read More

bohemian wedding in new york with carla ten eyck

 

When a photographer asks you to be their photographer for their wedding… well. It’s a huge honor. But when it’s also someone who you have known for years, someone who you have grown with as a person and as a photographer with, that’s got even more of a heart achy-GAH-I am so flattered and excited and shit I hope you like what I do vibe to it! Like, I just want you to love how I see your day, how I see your closest friends and family and the love of your life. I hope you like how Read More

Lord Thompson Wedding with Carla Ten Eyck

There were so many things that I loved about Kirsten + Thomas’ wedding at The Lord Thompson Manor this summer. So many!! First off, and most importantly, I just adore Kirsten and Thomas and how easy going and light they are! Nothing seemed to stress them out, not during our engagement session, or during our pre-planning meetings and come the day of the wedding with all of the moving parts that a wedding day has in it… nothing fazed them! And why would it? When you have the beehive of efficiency that is the staff at the Manor, nothing Read More

Sperry Tented Private CT Estate Wedding with Carla Ten Eyck

A tented wedding at someone’s home is always one of my favorite locations for a wedding.┬áIt’s like a bit of a blank canvas, with a tent (and a Sperry tent at that! My favorite!) you can create something that is truly a reflection of the couple and their taste, mixed in with the personal, with it being at a family home and all. I love it! Seeing the magic that Sarah True and her team at True Event put together on this blustery and quite rainy day was spectacular to watch! Everything went off without a hitch, and we Read More

Bushnell Memorial Hartford Wedding with Carla Ten Eyck

This year has been the year of just, soul-mate clients! And I am not talking about for each other, because, like, DUH if you’re not..! Then we have bigger issues, am I right? I am talking about my clients being my soul-clients. And not all of them are, which is, (in the real world anyway) the norm, am I right? But there is something magical about this year’s lineup… something really deep and real, and I am so happy about it!
Enter Laura and Rob. My first clue that they were something special should have been the fact that Laura Read More

michael and michael’s castle hill wedding with carla ten eyck

 

I can’t say enough about the Michaels. From our first chat on the phone (where I feel like I was squealing on the inside, and quite possibly it was on the outside!) after hearing how excited they were to marry each other with the love and support of their friends and family at one of the most beautiful venues in Newport… Castle Hill..(!) I just couldn’t wait to see how it all unfolded. How dashing they would look in their tuxes. How they would so tenderly look into each others’ eyes as they exchanged vows. Read More

Lauren + Vanessa, The Barn at Walnut Hill, Portland Maine
I have recently started to listen to and appreciate country music. Big share there! Not like super hard-core twang-fest country music, but more the kind that gets you in the feels. Brandi Carlile, The Zac Brown Band, always Willie Nelson, always. You feel me. Or maybe you don’t. Here’s the thing. For me, as an artist, I need to find clients who see my work and can feel it resonate within them. Much like these country artists to me, I need my clients to feel the emotion Read More

Engage 15 Nizuc Riviera Maya with Carla Ten Eyck

What started off as a spur of the moment, let me grab you and create a portrait of you because I am super inspired and I can’t control myself whim, has morphed into an official offering at my most favorite industry event, the Engage Luxury Wedding Summit that happens every six months in high-end resorts all over the globe! That entire sentence made me so happy to even think about in private, let alone have it be something that is actually a reality…! I still can’t believe that I get to attend each Engage not only as an attendee Read More

engagement session at the ocean house with carla ten eyck

One of the weddings I am looking forward to photographing so much this year has got to be Christopher + Tyler’s. And not just because the countdown has been more dramatic and drawn out than say, Kim and Kanye’s! Because that has been super fun to watch on Facebook (since we are all friends and we ‘like’ each other’s gym pics!) But it’s also because I get to see Chris’ family again, all together celebrating. I met Chris in 2010 when I photographed his sister, my home girl for life, Liz Krankowitz. No. That is not her real name Read More

portland wedding at barn at walnut hill with carla ten eyck

I met Vanessa a few years back at one of the most amazing industry conferences there is, called Engage Luxury Wedding Summits. We circled around each other for a few conferences before really seeing what great friends we were going to become. You know how that is when you make friends in the industry, you try to maintain some level of professionalism and fanciness and do the square dance of .. professionalism and fanciness! Well, we do-si-do’d right into bestie country when she stepped in and designed and printed the beautiful prayer card for my good friend and employee Read More
