Intimate Wedding at The Bee and Thistle Inn

 
Annie and Chris’ wedding at The Bee and Thistle Inn, in Old Lyme CT was one of the most emotional weddings I have ever photographed. Maybe it was the connection I made with Annie before, or maybe it was watching the love and adoration that Annie and Chris had for one another during their engagement session in New Haven that made me even more excited for their wedding? I’m not entirely sure, but what I do know is how openly Annie and Chris showed their love and adoration for one another, every smile, every tear, all of it. Read More

Harold Pratt House NYC Wedding Sneak Peek

Yesterday’s wedding at the Harold Pratt House in New York was SO MUCH FUN!! I adore Zack and Polly (they were my rainy day Hartford engagement session that I posted on my insta story about!) and just knew after their engagement session with me in the rain and cold, that we would be fine on their wedding day, no matter what! I couldn’t have been more right! There was 100% trust in me from the start of the day until I left, and I felt free to create some magic with them with zero worry or pressure. Here is Read More

William H. Buckley Farm Wedding with Carla Ten Eyck

When Kat and I FaceTimed for our first meeting, I felt like we could stay and chat all day, despite her business as a Landscape Designer at her company, Staghorn NYC, in full bustle all around her. She was so passionate about what they were planning for their day, and passionate about securing a photographer who she connected with, and we hit it off, instantly! I showed up to their venue in the rolling hills of Ballston Spa, NY and was just filled with excitement for the day. What a gorgeous property! Kat + Michael had their wedding party Read More

Winter St. Clements Castle Wedding Preview with Carla Ten Eyck

Oh, yesterday. I am still processing my feelings from Rachel and Gabby’s wedding but am so excited to share a few of the images from their super emotional, super amazing day.  Gabby and Rachel are the most eloquent writers, their vows just about blew the roof off the church, there was not a dry eye in sight. I was literally stopped in my tracks to the point where I set my camera down so I could absorb the words better. I felt completely transformed. I plan on writing so much more when I post their full post here so Read More

ct winter seaside engagement session

Last week I had a winter engagement session on the beach in Stratford CT, which sounds super fun, and looks even better than it sounds, am I right?? What you can’t tell here is that Coco + Joe, affectionately known as CocoJoe and I were freezing our faces off pretty much the entire time! All I can see when I look through their images is warmth and love. I can still hear Coco’s laugh, inevitable no matter how serious she starts off, erupting like a volcano on a tropical island, so warm and full of life. Joe is like Read More

bee and thistle wedding old lyme ct

Brianna and Sam were married at one of my very favorite Connecticut venues, The Bee and Thistle Inn in Old Lyme on a gorgeous Saturday in September. It was threatening to rain most of the day, and the skies were gloomy and dark and dramatic, and while I kind of loved the light it was giving us for our portraits I was sending little prayers to the universe to please just let them get married outside by the river like they had envisioned since booking this charming spot for their wedding! We had planned the schedule with perfection and Read More

Backyard CT Beach Wedding with Carla Ten Eyck

When I heard my friend Chris was engaged I was so excited. Not only for the fact that he has been Hartford’s most eligible bachelor for like, ever, but also because a party by the Peters family is always a good time, and I knew this one would be one for the books. I’ve known Chris since I was in fifth grade and became instant besties with his cousin Bethany, who is still one of my very best friends to this day, 34 years ago. So we have been through some things in our lives together, as you can Read More

I met Tosh while photographing a wedding at her place of business, The Bee + Thistle Inn in Old Lyme CT and from that experience on we knew it was a love like no other. She is such a professional, knows her stuff and is HILARIOUS. I get so excited when  i find others like me who can switch into work / professional mode on a dime and then be silly the next. Read the room, people! And Miss Tosh is a pro at it! So naturally we love working together creating amazing experiences for our shared clients and 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
