Amarante’s Seacliff Weddings in Connecticut – 5 reasons I love this place.

I do have the best job in the world.  I love serving my clients and thinking up cool ways to create something really special for each couple on their wedding day.  There are many wedding locations in CT where I love to work.  One of these is Amarante’s Seacliff in New Haven.  Let me tell you a little about why I enjoy this place so much. #1:  Grace and the whole team at Amarante’s treat their clients and vendors like family.  (I am a preferred vendor there so I know!)  They really care about your wedding day.. and they work with you as if you ARE a member of their own family.  This is for real and not something you find anywhere.  Trust me. #2:  The food is awesome.  I love to eat great food and when I photograph weddings I get very hungry so, it is always a pleasure to eat their fine food.   Amarante’s does an awesome job at their Client Tasting events twice a year, too! #3:  The service is wonderful.  I have NEVER I experienced a hold up in the meal coming out or a glitch in the time-line that makes the guests fidgity wondering when […]

Engagement Session at Chamard Vineyards & Hammonasset

I spent a lovely evening with Rachel and Mario at Chamard Vineyards in Clinton, CT.  It was a great break from the rain and the heat as the cool breezes at the shore were glorious.  Mario works there so I had a grand tour of the whole place – including the wine cellar!  Check it out if you have not… the smells from the kitchen were yummy and they grow their own herbs and veggies, too.  After the Chamard ‘experience’ we went down to the beach at Hammonasset for the sunset.   It was a great time and I cannot wait to photograph their wedding in August at the Guilford Yacht Club.   I hope you enjoy these photos!

Walking the Dog….

It was a great beach week, wasn’t it?  A real summer preview.  I had the pleasure of going to the beach with Ann-Marie and Chris, plus Kenzie, their dog.  They will be married the 1st of May and these are some of my favorite images from their engagement session.  Ann-Marie and Chris, you are a wonderful couple.  And Kenzie, a great little dog!  Thanks for sharing the day with me and I can’t wait until your wedding day!

Love those Beach Portraits

Feeling very lucky with the weather on Cape Cod!  What a week!  We combined family vacationing with beach portraits this year and it worked out well.  I could use that backdrop all year round!  Thank you to my husband Peter who acted as my assistant for the first time!  He did a great job, especially entertaining the kids while I got ready to shoot. This beach is my favorite National Seashore Beach, Newcomb Hollow.  We have been going there every summer for the past five years.  This beautiful family from Connecticut is a family I have photographed before in Connecticut, and as it turned out, they spend a great deal of time on the Cape, too.  So we met up at the beach and had a great time making portraits and goofing around.  If you spend time at a beach or at Cape Cod, let me know and next year – you could have beach portraits, too!
