A Wickham Park Wedding I had the honor of photographing Andrea and Jim’s Wickham Park Wedding at the Log Cabin in September. It was a bright sunny day with big puffy clouds so they could not have asked for weather. Joined by their family and friends, their vows were exchanged high on a hill overlooking the spectacular view of downtown Hartford. Great reasons to choose a Wickham Park Wedding. The Log Cabin at Wickham Park is one of my favorite places at the park to photograph a wedding. This location has a spectacular view of the city and sunsets. There is a resident Moosehead over the stone fireplace in the cabin for those who care! The white tent attached to the Log Cabin helps with larger events, rain, or hot days so this is a definite added advantage. The Guests and newly weds are able to enjoy the gardens for lovely photo opportunities or simply the ability to relax outside on the benches. On top of all this, the formal flower garden and outdoor ceremony patio (yes with a spectacular view) is a wonderful place for ceremonies. Andrea and Jim planned a day that was totally reflective of their interests and personalities resulting in a great time for everyone. Here are some photos from the day. We started photographing […]
What a year this was. We probably all need some time to reflect on it and that is what I have been doing as I end my wedding and portrait season this week. Hence, my End of Year Review! This year, 2016, there was disruption, excitement of all kinds, plus many wonderful things, too. In my business – my wedding clients were the best ever, all of you so interesting and creative how you planned the perfect wedding celebrations to share your love with family and friends. I am grateful for my returning clients who’ve come back every year or so to record life’s milestones. Thank you. I have enjoyed every minute with you all! This year stretched me and challenged me to see familiar things in new ways. There is always something new to learn and this year came with opportunities to grow. I decided early in 2016 to have a word for the year. It was – ‘Effortlessness’. I did manage to find moments personally and in my work that became effortless. Quite amazing, actually. I will find a new word for 2017 that will inspire and push me forward again. I decided to limit this End of Year Review to 8 photos. It was definitely a challenge. […]
I had the honor of photographing this Mystic Seaport Wedding of Krisann & Tim. What an awesome couple! Krisann just happens to work at Mystic Seaport so she knew how wonderful it would be. Plus she is so creative and talented that she made her own veil and arranged all the flowers bouquets and arrangements! The ceremony took place in the Greenmanville Church and their reception was at Latitude 41 the restaurant right next door to the Seaport. It was a lovely day for a wedding however very hot and humid, so we stuck close to the air-conditioned Latitude 41 and took photos around that area of the Seaport. Here are some photos from the day.

December 22, 2014 in Pomfret, CT Last week in the beautiful rolling hills of eastern Connecticut, I photographed this Tyrone Farm Engagement Session with Julie and Chris. Their wedding will be next August, but December was the best time for their Tyrone Farm Engagement Session since they live in Dijon, France and were here for the holidays.
The day was cool and crisp and the fall foliage was at peak color. Family and friends gathered together to celebrate Chelsea and Peter’s Wedding at The Waterview. It was an honor for me to photograph their special day. They will create a fantastic life together. This was a brilliantly fun and elegant affair, as is the norm for a wedding at The Waterview. The details reflected the autumn colors with hints of Halloween everywhere giving it the feel of an old fashioned masquerade party. The Waterview has two wonderful settings for outdoor wedding ceremonies. Set on Lake Zoar in Monroe, CT, the grounds are well manicured with patios and well landscaped gardens. A wonderful setting for the photography. Here are some favorite photos from the day to share with you. Congratulations Chelsea and Peter! Best wishes to you both. This wedding at The Waterview was my last wedding of 2014. What a wonderful way to finish the season. Thanks for stopping by the blog. Please leave a comment so I know you were here. 🙂 Vendor Highlights: Dress: www.dessy.com; Tuxes: Mens Warehouse; Flowers: Main Street Florist & Gifts, Ridgefield, CT; Hair: Pure Platinum Hair Salon in Oxford, CT; Nails: […]
Today I am happy to share with you this recent Pomfret School Chapel Wedding at the Pomfret School of eastern Connecticut. Erin and Rob could not have had a more perfect day. It started out a little foggy but, as Erin’s father exclaimed after the ceremony, “The skies cleared as soon as they kissed!” The sun was bright and we had a beautiful, dry September day of celebration. Erin and Rob are two very special people. I met Erin a few years ago at a chamber of commerce meeting. She took my card then, and now many years later, she called when they decided to marry! I am thrilled that she did, as they planned a really fun and beautiful wedding and I had a chance to get to know them both a little more. One of her relatives had a Stanley Steamer car, so she arrived and departed in this cool old fashioned vehicle. The Pomfret School Chapel is a gorgeous place to be married. In fact, Erin’s parents were married there, too. I think that is pretty special. Erin and Rob included all her nieces and nephews as an integral part of the wedding party which made some […]
I had the honor of photographing Erin and Robert’s CT Engagement Session at Belltown Hill Orchards in Glastonbury last weekend. Since this beautiful couple lives right in the Orchard neighborhood, they arranged permission with the Orchard owners for us to photograph where no other people were. Plus, we were able to stay after the picking hours for the golden evening light and had the whole orchard to ourselves. How special is that?!? If you follow my blog, you may know how much I love photographing CT Engagement Sessions. Not only do we have beautiful landscapes in every corner of the state, but there is so much variety such as: farm country, cities, small quaint towns, beaches, and hilly trails and woods. Here are the 4 most important reasons why I love photographing CT Engagement Sessions: 1) Besides the fact that I have been a lifelong resident of this beautiful little state and I know many cool areas and beautiful spots for a CT Engagement Session, this is an important time for my couples and I to get to know each other better. I learn a lot about them from their session. For instance, I can see how self-conscious (or not) […]
Here is a sneak peak of last weekends wedding which took place at the historic and beautiful Wright’s Mill Farm in Canterbury, CT. It is located in the northeast corner of the state. A rural area with covered bridge, a pond and old barns. I wonderful place for a June wedding and for couples who make the photography a priority. This wonderful couple, Ashley and Jeremy, created a beautiful wedding ceremony and reception here at Wright’s Mill Farm. Take a look and stay tuned for more images to come. Congratulations to Ashley and Jeremy on marriage.
