Eyes up, heart open

Carla Ten Eyck


My most important job as your  photographer is to tell the story of your wedding day while making you and your family and friends comfortable.

I believe the more comfortable you are, the better your pictures will be.

My typical client loves their family + friends over anything. Always, always. They value time spent together, and are able to appreciate the quieter moments in their relationships, that strung together, share a story of deep love.

They appreciate beautiful photography, art and design. Someone who lets me do what I do best, and trusts my many years of experience in the industry. Whether you are the most camera-shy person or the biggest ham, there is no cookie-cutter approach to every client.

I will get you comfortable in a way that is best for you.

Here you can view my most recent weddings, events and other fun sessions. Grab a cup of coffee and get comfortable, I have been happily blogging since 2006, so there is all of the content to do a deep dive and see if I am the right fit for you and your event.

I pride myself on being a welcoming + inclusive photographer + human being and embrace everyone. I am so happy you are here to view my work, stay as long as you’d like and please feel free to leave a comment or share any posts! XO Carla Ten Eyck

scott and nicole new york city engagement shoot

Last week my good friend Paul and I ventured into New York for an engagement shoot. Great, right? Only thing, it was in the middle of a TORRENTIAL DOWNPOUR! But we soldiered on!
Now many of you who know me, clients and friends alike, all know how adamant I am about NOT rescheduling my engagement shoots because of rain. Why not, you ask? Well, what if it rains for your wedding? We can’t reschedule that, can we? And don’t you want a photographer who is comfortable and confident in all weather conditions? I know I would!

baby evie day one session

As many of you know, my incredible teammates Graham and Ashley Scobey were pregnant, for what seemed like forever. Last week they welcomed their precious baby daughter Evelyn Grey Scobey, or Evie into the world and I was honored to be there and document part of her second day in the world.
I walked in to this: Graham, and Ashley’s parents watching their children watch their little daughter get her little heel stuck for tests. I remember so clearly what that felt like to watch your little baby get poked and prodded- it was agony, and I cried every time. Read More

And on the 12th of June…..IT WAS SUNNY!!!!
And so, she cried…. See, every major event in Chelsea and Chris’ lives together had rain involved. So for their wedding? Well, it would rain of course!

On the 6th of June, which in our studio is a Holiday (I will tell you later why) we had the pleasure of photographing the lovely Ashley and Jordan at the Saybrook Point Inn in Old Saybrook, CT. We started off at their home where the lovely ladies of Dana Bartone were there to work their early morning magic… Did I say this was a morning wedding? Oh it was. E-A-R-L-Y!!
Here the flower girl was just thrilled to be in the room with Ashley. They said ‘you can come in as long as you don’t peek!’ Sorry, sister but Read More

The third and final installment of our triple play weekend took place at the incredible Branford House in Groton. Beth and Paul had their ceremony and reception there so it was a once stop day of photographing some lovely people and details. Our first stop, however, was at a salon in Mystic where Miss Beth got her pretty on…. Here she models a fun ring that one of her close friends brought for all of the girls to wear in celebration of the wedding.

june ten eyck tuesday

Well. Things are going full steam ahead here at the studio these past few months, and honestly, I couldn’t be happier! I mean, it would be nice if I had a pause button every once in a while- so that I could just stand back and….pause everything for a second. And take it all in. And marvel and how crazy my life is, but also how wonderful. How happy I am to work with such wonderful, honest and true people. But I know that once I un-paused the pause, things would go rushing by even faster…
