Kat + Steve: Woodwinds, Branford

Kat and Steve are one of the most endearing and equally attractive couples I've had the chance to spend a wedding with. Their Stony Creek and Woodwinds wedding was highlighted with a 72 degree October wave of warmth and it was perfect. 

Special thanks to Nick Caito Photography for second shooting and shout out to East Coast Imaging working the video. 

Nicole + Steve: Mansion at Bald Hill, Woodstock

A stunning bride. A handsome groom. Warm families and an outrageously attractive and fun bridal party. Slightly overcast day and the hues of Autumn. If only every wedding could be like this! Congrats Nicole and Steve. 

Chrissy + Thomas: Lighthouse Point Park, New Haven

When I stepped out of the car at Lighthouse Point Park in New Haven, I was greeted with temps in the 70's, sun, and a beautiful sea breeze. For late September, it was a welcome surprise and a perfect start to Chrissy and Thomas's wedding which only got better as the day went on. Congratulations to the happy couple and enjoy the photos!

Hillary + Eric: Mansion at Bald Hill (Video)

Starting "Blog 2.0" and having no content is somewhat ironic so let's kick this off with a wedding video I recently completed with the help of Michael Zaritheny

Hillary and I go back to our days at ECSU (which is referred to as Eastern now, not ECSU, because... branding...despite the fact that they went through something like three mascots/logos in my time there). We stayed in touch on Facebook and I was thrilled when she reached out asking for me to do her wedding video.

The Mansion at Bald Hill is always professional and beautiful and it was a pleasure to shoot on their grounds again. It also helped that the rain cleared out in the morning and we had a splendid summer day to film on...great vibes! 

Hillary and Eric were so fun to work with. Their families were equally delightful and the bridal party was an absolute riot. We couldn't have asked for a better place to film or better people to celebrate with. Enjoy the teaser!

Nicole and Steve: Engagement Shoot in Glastonbury

This session took place around the Glastonbury Ferry on a misty morning. I love the neutral tones in these images and the candid smiles of Nicole and Steve...they're such a playful and fun couple in front of the camera. Enjoy the images.

Eminet + Jeff: New Haven, CT

I think it was the determined warmth of the spirit of this wedding that pushed the rain away after the ceremony, just in time to walk around Yale for some of my favorite wedding photos ever! Jeff and Eminet's day was so much fun and was filled with an abundance of joy and two amazing families. Guests were treated to an array of food later at the Old Lyme Art Association, including some authentic Ethiopian food! Congrats you two on a beautiful wedding, many blessings on your marriage!

Ashley + Derek: East Haddam, CT

Rain has never been more beautiful.

When we pulled into her driveway, Ashley came running out in her jacket, hood up, all smiles and that smile never left her face all day. It only grew wider as she walked with her father down the aisle towards Derek. The mood of the wedding was warm and people danced hard, no matter how wet their boots were! Thanks Ash and Derek for such a great day, congratulations!

Danielle + Justin: Lighthouse Point Park, CT

Two gorgeous people. A gorgeous location. Fair weather and a…lighthouse??? Yes, please! I've had the pleasure of knowing Danielle and Justin for a while, through mutual friends and from previous photo shoots. I knew that the day was going to be great as I listened to Danielle over coffee about the carousel, local food trucks and lawn games. The wedding was every bit as beautiful as imagined and showcased lots of DIY finishing touches. Congrats to the happy couple, may your marriage be blessed!
