Tully and Justice Richard Palmer Get Married in Elizabeth Park

When I got an email a few months back from Nancy Goldstein, from Amazing Celebrations and Events,  for a wedding that was going to take place in my ‘hood, Elizabeth Park, and I was excited. And then when I found out if was for a dear friend of mine, Tully, I was elated! Tully and I go way back, to the early years before I had children. We used to hang out and travel with our ex-husbands and laugh, have cocktails and dinner and… laugh some more. See, Tully is hands down one of the funniest people I have Read More

Tammy and Jason’s Joyful Rainy Wedding in the Finger Lakes NY

 

How do I even begin to write this post for this wedding, and tell you all about every little and big meaningful thing here? This feels like a big task so I am going to just jump right in. I met Tammy way back in 2006, the now ‘old fashioned’ way. We met online. This was way before Facebook and Instagram and any social media platform that united us. This was back when us photographers blogged on our souped up Blogger Blogs, we didn’t even use Word Press back then. We knew there were others like us Read More

The 3 Best Intimate Wedding Venues in Connecticut

As a wedding photographer and event photographer in Connecticut, I have the opportunity to see a lot of different wedding spots, from intimate wedding venues to massive ballrooms.  I witness them in pre-action and in full action. After sixteen years photographing every type of wedding and event over the years in all of the places you can imagine, as far away as Scotland and Costa Rica, I have seen some events!
Despite all of the amazing travel (which, trust me, I love love love) one of the best parts of traveling is coming home. I hail from Hartford, Connecticut Read More

Katie and Jake’s wedding at Tyrone Farm in Pomfret CT was a stormy, rainy amazing day for the books!

Lynn and Dan’s Rustic Wright’s Mill Farm Wedding

Lynn and Dan’s joyful, rustic Wright’s Mill Farm wedding in Canterbury CT was everything I had hoped it would be! I love that dance we all do as small business owners in the wedding and event industry; we field a call or email from a prospective client, we reach out, we meet. And then we either connect, or we don’t. So much these days can get lost in translation via email or text, and there is nothing quite like a face to face meeting, where you can read the emotions that play across their faces as you ask them Read More

Whimsical Garden Party Wedding at Eolia Mansion in Harkness Park

I photographed a whimsical garden wedding in the amphitheater at Harkness Memorial Park in Waterford CT with Chris and Beth and my heart could not be more full if it tried! When I first spoke to Beth over the phone about her wedding, we connected instantly over our shared love of gardening and all things floral. Peonies full and lush? Ferns? FERNS? A floral chandelier? Once I knew that my good friend Carrie of Carrie Wilcox Floral Design in Fairfield was the creative genius behind crafting the floral design, I knew Chris and Beth’s wedding was going to be Read More

Saltwater Farm Vineyard Wedding with KLW Design Co.

Katya and Neal’s epic wedding at Saltwater Farm Vineyard in Stonington CT yesterday was heaven-sent. There were cherubic adorable little flower girls and ring bearers floating around angelically all day, and an abundance of romantic and ethereal details that set the tone for their wedding day! I have known Katya forever- since she was in grade school, and I coached her and my cousin Stephanie in soccer when they were little, and I have loved watching her grow into the amazing young woman that she is today. We got to bond recently when Stephanie married Greg in Mexico and Read More

InterContinental Boston Wedding

Christina and Ryan’s Greek meets Irish wedding at the InterContinental Boston (in, you guessed it, Boston) was filled with color and family and THAT GOWN! and just all of the things that make doing what I do as a photographer soul-fulfilling. Christina and Ryan’s obvious love for their families and the hustle and bustle of a busy wedding day kept the day moving at full speed ahead, and just made the day fly by! I knew the ceremony would be emotional, as both Ryan and Christina have lost their fathers, and I know not having your Dad there to Read More

The Riverview Simsbury CT Wedding with Carla Ten Eyck

Here is a quick peek from yesterday’s CRAZY FUN wedding of Mia + Brian at The Riverview in Simsbury, CT. There were tears, and so many funny antics by the kids AND the adults, I couldn’t stop laughing and saying out loud ‘is this really happening’? It was such a pleasure being welcomed back into the Siracusa Family Fold – I photographed Melissa + Mike’s wedding ages ago- but it felt like yesterday since I saw them all! Their ability to just be who they are, loud and proud just attracts me to them all, and I laugh right Read More

Tyrone Farm Pomfret CT Wedding with Carla Ten Eyck

Jessie and Zack’s wedding at Tyrone Farm in Pomfret CT was the stuff that my dreams are made of! Romantic, beautiful, with every little touch point thought of… I was in pure heaven from the moment that I showed up on property until I left! Jessie did her research, and was relentless in her quest to assemble a group of creatives who spoke to her vision for her wedding to Zack. I would have to say, she done GOOD! The second those flowers – crafted by the uber talented ladies of Stems Floral Design- showed up… I just about Read More
