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 is a lover of photography, art and design. They are someone who has to have beautiful photographs. 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 and inclusive photographer and 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

Life Milestone: Our First Home Together

‘I’ll light the fire
you place the flowers in the vase
that you bought today
staring at the fire
for hours and hours
while I listen to you
play your love songs
all night long for me
only for me’
Our House – Graham Nash
When a client inquires with you about photographing them, it’s a bit of a wild card. Do they love your work and can see what makes you…you? Are they price shopping and just looking for the best deal, as long as everything is in focus? Did they speak to a past client of yours Read More

Same Sex Wedding at the Pond House Cafe with Carla Ten Eyck

When Stacy reached out to me for her wedding to Jenese, I was beyond excited. Not only was I pumped that I was available for it (I was not for her first wedding) but also because she had found her true love. I knew it as soon as I saw them both together. They just… clicked. The way they looked at one another, the way they were so gentle with each other, how easily they laughed with one another. It’s the stuff that I can’t wait to have , but delight in seeing my friends, clients and family have. Read More

Backyard CT Tented Wedding with a Puppy Surprise

This amazing backyard tented wedding in Glastonbury CT was perfect in so many ways, the weather was hand picked from my list of perfect weather for weddings and there was a PUPPY SURPRISE! Let’s start with the weather… The last time I had been at their home, where the wedding was, it was for their engagement session, you can see it HERE. Unfortunately it down poured like crazy, so I wasn’t able to see their yard in its full glory, although I still created some romantic imagery with them both. Their wedding day made up for that in spades! Read More

Classic Branford House Wedding with Carla Ten Eyck Part One

This classic Branford House wedding with the crazy talented ladies that are Jubilee Events was so filled with beauty and amazing-ness I had to do a two-part blog post! Because, I simply could NOT fit all of the details and emotion into one post without feeling like I watered down the whole experience! I officially met Kara and Victor at their rehearsal dinner pre-shoot that we did, and the wind was soft and the light was just right. They had been living the long distance dream for a while and this was the only quiet time they had with Read More

Latitude 41 Mystic Seaport Wedding with Coastal Gourmet and Carla Ten Eyck

 
After fifteen years of photographing weddings, I have come to the conclusion that intimate weddings are something super special. A small, curated group of the most meaningful members of your life, all there supporting your choice to join your life to your partners life, just gives me the feels. Each person is hand picked to be there, each person has a unique and special connection to the couple. There is nothing quite like it! Peter and Tori had such a powerful and loving connection with one another before the wedding and especially on the wedding day. When they Read More

New York City Hall Wedding with Carla Ten Eyck

 
A big perk of my job as a professional photographer is the education and travel portion of my job. Three times a year I attend / speak or photograph at the renowned Engage Luxury Business Summit, that takes place in high end resorts all over the world! It is a place to learn, network and connect with like-minded wedding industry professionals at the top of their game. My favorite part of this is really getting to know these creative partners as people, not just for the work and accolades that they have achieved. One of my favorite people Read More

Wedding at the Surf Club with Carla Ten Eyck

Photographing a few of Ali’s friends led her to me, and being her wedding photographer – but it was their friends that set them up at a bar in Fort Lauderdale and brought them together! Despite being long distance, their love hold fast. No matter that it was a New York / Florida love, which is FAR! Once Ali and Adam realized how happy they were when they were together the deal was done, and despite Adam saying he would never leave the Sunshine State again, here he is, back in New York! Love will do that to you…! Read More

Mansion on Turner Hill Wedding with Carla Ten Eyck

Phyllis and Dan’s wedding at the Mansion on Turner Hill in Ipswich MA was one for the books! The day started at the mansion and from the second I walked in, and took in all of the beautiful light filled spaces and rooms, I was beyond excited for the day to begin! Little did I know that when I saw Phyllis’ wedding gown by Eve of Milady I would  nearly faint with excitement! Add to THIS how sweet and beautiful Phyllis and her bridesmaids are and I was in complete and total photography heaven! At every turn I was Read More

Stormy Skies Glastonbury Engagement with Carla Ten Eyck

Is there anything more romantic than Stormy Skies a warm summer rain, cuddling with the one you love at home? Even if it’s outside at your home and you’re supposed to be having your engagement photos done and then all of a sudden a big Stormy Skies sweep in and it gets super dark and stormy and maybe even a little bit scary (the cats were hiding!) You bet it still is! If there is one thing you should know about me, it’s that I am not afraid of photographing my couples in the rain. I find that rain, Read More
