Eyes up, heart open
There is so much I get excited about with my work, and one of the things that gets me fired up is being able to show my work the way that I think it should be shown. What better way to do this than by teaming up with my favorite designer like… EVAH… my bff Nichole Michel of Coral Pheasant Stationery and Design! Nichole has a way of seeing my work and laying out each page of my e-zine with such care… I look through this and forget this is my work each time!
I love sharing some of Read More
When I met Lisa and Jay for their engagement session in Mystic I was so excited. See Jay here is like the Mayor of Mystic. And while I thought I knew Mystic pretty well after spending years going down there Jay showed me areas of Mystic I just didn’t even know about! We started at my new favorite place for Happy Hour- The Oyster Club right on Water Street. They have $1 oysters! ONE DOLLAR! I am a huge oyster lover so this was (obviously) where we would end up after our shoot was done for some oysters and Read More
Brooks’ and Kevin’s Guilford Yacht Club wedding is one of my all time favorites, even to this day! The weather was absolute perfection, the mood for the day was happy, and light and everyone was just in the most happy mood all day! The colors kept me feeling pretty happy and bright too- who doesn’t love navy and yellow for a seaside tented wedding on the Connecticut shore? I know, right! Brooks designed the most perfect day and I just loved photographing every well thought out detail, from the picnic basket centerpieces filled with happy yellow flowers to the fun Read More
What can I say about Miss Gillan and her husband Mike? They are two of the most kind, and funny people I have met, and spending time with them from their engagement session to their wedding was so… easy. Effortless. Like we were old friends! We all laughed easily, and man-oh-man they were both so incredibly comfortable in front of my camera! OK, so they are also both actors, so yes, that has a little to do with it… lucky me! Their New York City wedding at the Manhattan Penthouse was so beautiful and was filled with well-wishing family and friends. Read More
Ashley and Ray are the epitome of what I hope all my clients are: energetic, emotive and just head over heels in love. We can talk for hours, and I feel like a part of their family! Maybe photographing Ashley’s sister Jessica’s wedding a few years back broke me into the family a bit…! From Jessica’s wedding, I just was one of them. It was a given that I was going to be there for Ashley and Ray’s big day, and man I was counting down the days! Their families are so warm, so welcoming and I felt so safe Read More
Over the past few years I have spent quite a bit of time doing styled shoots with some pretty amazing friends and vendors in the industry. These shoots have taken us all over the world, and honestly it’s part of my job that I just LOVE. I love brainstorming ideas and shoot locations and trouble shooting and thinking on the fly and trying not to throw a tantrum when security denies us access to the Eiffel Tower to shoot but then come up with something even WAY better than I thought I could! I love to DIG DEEP and Read More
Happy 2014! What better way to start off the year than with a blunt, honest and heartfelt blog post about weddings, love and why I do what I do..! I couldn’t think of better clients to help usher in this new approach to blogging and business than Jessica and Ben. See, I met Jessica after she booked me to photograph her wedding and we just clicked on such a deep level. Not only that, but Ben and I did as well, I swear I could feel the love from them both. They were so open and honest in front of Read More
Melissa and Jeff and I and their super cute doggies Jack and George!!!!! Yes! You heard me correctly, those are indeed my kids names!!…. had the most fun on a brisk fall afternoon a few weeks back doing our engagement session in Shelton at the Historical Society! The air was crisp and sharp, and the light was soft and pretty! There were nooks and crannies to be found, and these two were so natural and comfortable in front of the camera! I can’t wait for their wedding this June at Harkness!!
Like. Please. Melissa, you are killing it!
Erika and Darren were married this past July and had their ceremony and reception at The Inn at Long Shore in Westport CT. My trusty second shooter Mike Romano was with me for the day, alongside our buddy, Jim Altieri of Vintage Cinema! We always have such a blast working together, and let me tell you that day was no exception!
Erica’s lacy dreamy super beautiful Rivini gown was from my favorite shop The White Dress by the Shore in Clinton CT! I loved her belt!
Dana Bartone and Company was on beauty duty! They looked so Read More
Any chance to photograph at L’Escale in Greenwich is always a YES. Roseanne and Iain were married on gorgeous and unseasonably warm October day with a wedding at L’Escale in Greenwich, CT, and they were no exception! It was a hearty YES for us all from the start! Both the bride & groom got ready at the super beautiful Delamar Hotel in Greenwich, CT. I spent the morning with Roseanne and her family, while my trusty second photographer spent some time with Iain and his family. Even though rain – TONS of it!- threatened to fall all day, it never did Read More
