Because of the many discussions I have with my newly engaged couples and the advice I find myself giving, I thought I would start a series of “tips” for brides and grooms here on my blog. These tips, not necessarily on wedding planning, but on anything that I have observed to be helpful to avoid pitfalls either the day of the wedding, before or after. So, here is the first one! Tip# 1. Quite often during the formal family portraits at a wedding it can be difficult for the bride to focus on the photos happening at the moment. She may be worried that she doesn’t see a certain family member for the next portrait and she ends up looking tense and distracted. I suggest to my couples that they pick two people, one from the brides side and the other from the grooms side, who know all the folks on that side of the family and will round them up for the photos.

I thought I would begin a blog series of wedding album designs. This way you can see what I do for my clients after the wedding. All my albums designs are custom, made specifically to match the couples style and the wedding day feel. No two albums are ever the same! The style I chose here was simple and traditional. Meet Amy and John. They were married in June 2010 and they planned an intimate garden wedding. Check back soon as I will be showing you more designs from this years weddings. Thank you for stopping by the blog!

What a beautiful day for two incredible people, Elisabete and Andrew. They were married yesterday at the Harding- Allen Estate house in Barre, MA. It is a spectacular setting for a garden ceremony and indoor reception. This was my first time there and I highly recommend it! Here are a few of my favorite images from the day.

What a weekend it was! Erika and Steven, a couple since their high school days were married in the beautiful town of Woodstock, CT, at her church where her father is the minister! He gave her away and married them! They rode in a hay wagon pulled by a tractor to the reception at the ‘Pink House‘ up the road! The cupcakes were incredible! I cannot remember the name of the baker! Please comment here if you know- he deserves recognition. Each one was a work of art. Here are some highlights! Erika and Steven are both very talented musicians, graduates from the Dept. of Music at UConn. Wishing you the very best in your bright future together!
Amy and John were married in a beautiful backyard setting. Family and friends enjoyed the glorious evening – the weather could not have been more perfect for their special day. Here are a few images to preview. The Harvest, from Pomfret, CT catered the event. The food was super! Congratulations to Amy and John! I hung out a window on the second story of the house for this one!
