Eyes up, heart open
Lauren and Anthony’s Milford CT engagement session was amazing! Despite the heat, they happily snuggled and enjoyed some sense of normalcy surrounding their wedding during their socially distant engagement session. After not being able to work, and even now, this isn’t really working… it felt so normal to get back into the flow together. We met at their boat dock in Milford and popped around the docks and area for the amazing view. Thankfully there was a nice breeze on the water while we established some comfort together! I always explain to my couples that the first few minutes Read More
An engagement session at the famed Ice Hotel The Hotel De Glace in Montreal, Quebec? YES PLEASE!A few winters back I was so lucky to have my close friend and colleague Tammy Swales, a Rochester NY based wedding and event photographer, invite me to join her on a trip to Quebec to photograph her couple at the infamous ice hotel! I had heard about this place and was super intrigued and curious and instantly on board for the adventure. It just so happened that I was going to be in Vermont not too far from where we needed to Read More
Valley View Farms was host to an engagement session for Rayne and Colin and is one of the most beautiful properties I have been on in a long time. My friend Michelle works at Valley View Farms in Haydenville MA and reached out to me about coming up for a site tour and visit and I jumped at the chance. Enter Rayne and Colin and our need for a rustic farmy type location and I was so excited to connect these dots and bring them to the amazing Valley View Farm!
I have known Rayne since before she was Read More
Danielle and Victor’s engagements session at the UCONN Law School in Hartford’s historic West End neighborhood was beyond perfect! I mean, maybe I am biased because we started off in my wee little creek known as the Hog River (or Park River as it is currently known) that literally bubbles happily in my back yard. Or maybe I am biased because I have photographed at the Hartford Seminary campus and the UCONN Law School campus many many times before- because I really truly love to! I can say with complete confidence that making the choice to photograph any couple Read More
Ellen and Ken’s CT engagement session in Elizabeth Park in Hartford CT was filled with Benny the Vizsla and so much laughter! We met up at The Pond House and meandered our way around the park, guided by where the light was calling me. That’s just how I work when I do engagement sessions and have no hard and fast time limit with my couple. We have the freedom to roam where we want, and to be inspired by what looks great. One perk is that I know Elizabeth Park intimately, I grew up just down the street Read More
When I met up with Kristina and Joe for their summer CT engagement session this summer, it was warm but thank god it wasn’t as scorching as the one that got us up to 107!
No matter! They still brought the heat to their engagement session and my new Nikon Z6 camera was EN FUEGO the whole time! Not to be a nerd but to kind of be a nerd, I decided to give a mirrorless camera a go and decided today was the day, after months researching and picking the brains of my smart peers (thank you Gigi Read More
Kristin and Chris’ golden engagement session at Hartford’s famous rose garden in Elizabeth Park was just so beautiful! We met at the absolute perfect time on the longest day of the year and also the very first day of summer. The light was perfect and despite both Kristin and Chris being a little nervous to start- which honestly everyone is!- we segued very quickly into our flow state! When I start each session I make it clear to my couples that it is totally natural to feel… unnatural. I mean honestly, who has their photographs taken professionally on the Read More

Autumn engagement Harkness Park Waterford CT: Mackenzie and Steve’s autumn engagement session at Harkness Park in Waterford CT yesterday felt like a dream: a dream in vivid technicolor and soft neutrals paired with the warmth of an Indian summer day. Mackenzie and Steve arrived to our session with the energy and warmth that matched the unseasonably warm November day. We chatted so easily, much like we did when we first video chatted for their initial meeting and immediately hit it Read More
Last week I got to explore a rustic farm in Connecticut for my engagement session with Sarah and Jim. Being able to venture into parts of Connecticut that I don’t get to see on the regular is one of the highlights of my job. When Sarah and I set up their session she mentioned wanting to start at her fiancé Jim’s family farm and I was more than game to explore a place that was not only beautiful but meaningful to the both of them. There were fields, and a barn that Jim built (oh my gosh!) a gorgeous Read More
During this last little heat wave here in Connecticut, one would think the last thing anyone would want to do is get all gussied up for their engagement session in a field at Heritage Homestead in the sun, with like, a bunch of animals. You would, however, be super wrong! Jill and Mike (and both their Mom’s, and Mike’s sister, and their two dogs and Jill’s horse!) all made the trek out in the heat to meet me and my Nikon for a date in the sun. When I showed up, it was absolute chaos. What might look like Read More
