It was a brilliant day out at Case Mountain in Manchester, where I met my new friends Amy and John for an engagement session last weekend! We made some great images and got some great exercise too! I really like this shot… Amy and John are planning a backyard wedding at their home in Connecticut. This is very popular these days to put together a cost effective event at home! Stay tuned for the highlights at the end of June!
St. Clement’s Castle right here in Connecticut is one of my favorite places to photograph weddings! The setting is spectacular and the inside and outside of the building is perfect for all kinds of formal and informal images. Besides the views and architecture, the staff there is so helpful and accommodating that it is a pleasure to work there. My brides and grooms have all had wonderful things to say about their experience at St. Clement’s as well. I highly suggest this wedding venue if you can book it.
The natural light of garden weddings can make all the details look so beautiful. I love how the light here was so soft which complimented the roses and the details of this brides dress. I made this image recently after a garden wedding ceremony, just before sunset. Think about ‘time of day’ for your garden wedding. Late in the day is usually the best, as it is cooler and the light is perfect for your photos. You will look your best as well without the harsh sun on your face or on the white dress.
