~Brian & Heather - Lighthouse Point Park, New Haven, CT. - CT Wedding Photographer~

Brian & Heather are an incredible couple with an incredible story!  When they told me about their first date I just knew I had to share it!

"Our first date is a funny story, we had been corresponding over the phone for a few weeks and then we decided to meet for the first time at a restaurant half way between where we lived to grab a drink. I pulled into the unfamiliar place slightly nervous and received a text that he just parked. I looked over at the car next to me that pulled in and watched a guy get out. So trying to get over my nerves I got out of my car and introduced myself and asked if he wanted to go in. When we sat at the table I quickly felt like I had once again been set up on a disaster date as my date wouldn't make eye contact and looked extremely uncomfortable. To break the ice I asked how the gym was, since Brian had told me that's where he was coming from. My date gave me a strange look and said he doesn't go to the gym. It was at that moment I realized I had gone on the wrong date, so I quickly left. When I exited I checked my phone to see Brian was texting me wondering where I was, I then saw my true date emerge from his car. I couldn't stop laughing as he approached me and it seemed like my predate was the perfect ice breaker for my real date. My awkward predate didn't scare him off and the rest is history"

Is that not the best story!

Lighthouse Point Park Engagement

I love learning the story about the couples I photograph, things like Brian proposed in Milan (how romantic is that?), the best date they had was a walk outside on a rainy Christmas Eve, and that Brian writes thoughtful little Valentine's on sticky notes.


Brain & Heather are getting married July 2017 and I can't wait!  Just like Heather I am excited about Brian seeing her as she walks down the aisle (I hope he cries, I love it when my grooms cry).  Take a look at the other images from their engagement session at Lighthouse Point Park and bask in the love between these two.

~Orrin & Emily - Nathan Lester House, Gales Ferry, CT. - CT Wedding Photographer~

I recently photographed Orrin & Emily at The Nathan Lester House in Gales Ferry, CT. This soon-to-be wedded couple will be getting married on March 31st. I am definitely looking for to photographing the wedding next year.  Just look at that puppy!

Orrin and Emily met their junior year of high school when they were both on the track team.  They got engaged in February when Orrin popped the question as they began sailing away on a cruise to the Bahamas. Isn't that the sweetest?

The wedding will be at the Publik House in Sturbridge MA.

I know it's going to be a gorgeous wedding!

Future wedding details aside, let's get to the present: Orrin & Emily's engagement session! These two are real naturals in front of the camera. Their good looks, fabulous outfit choices, a sublime location and their genuine love for each other made this photo shoot a truly enjoyable experience!

Here's to many, many happy years together!

~Jose & Sara - Ledyard, CT - CT Wedding Photographer~

This is a very special couple for me. And deserved a very special location.

This is my daughter Sara and her fiance Jose. They haven't know each other long but when you know, you know.

We have had a short time to get to know Jose, but it is clear he loves my daughter dearly.  I couldn't have asked for a better son-in-law.

I loved being to create these memories for my daughter, however her wedding will be a different story.  I will enjoy the day and let a friend and fellow photographer take this job from me.

~Brian & Debbie - Engagement - CT Wedding Photographer~

Let's all give it up for one of the happiest couples I’ve ever seen: Brian & Debbie

My job was so easy with these two, hardly any direction was needed as they couldn't stop looking at, smiling, and kissing one another.

Their wedding date is set for October 14th, 2017.  They're excited to spend the rest of their lives together. It's so clear that this couple is head-over-heels for each other!

Just check out the pictures if you don't believe me!

~The Mermaid Life - CT Professional Photographer~

Doesn't every girl dream of being a mermaid?  From those of us old enough to remember Daryl Hannah in Splash, to those little mermaids singing about whosits and whatsits and thingamabobs.

When I put out a call for someone to be transformed into a mermaid Aimee jumped at the chance.  Playing dress up is always fun no matter your age, and Aimee rocked her mermaid session.

~Suzanne - Seaside State Park, Waterford, CT. - CT Newborn Photographer~

The photos I'm sharing with you today turned out so beautifully. As I was editing all the preview pictures for this blog post, I kept getting more and more excited with how they all turned out.

Before I post the pictures though, I want to first tell you about my model. Suzanne is a fellow photographer who graciously agreed to model for me when I finished sewing this maternity gown.

Suzanne looked stunning in this gown. The purple complimented her gorgeous blonde hair beautifully.

Overall, we had a really wonderful time together and I even had a few extra models who agreed to get into the frame with mom.

Check out these gorgeous photos!

~Ryan & Kathleen Buttonwood Farms, Griswold, CT. - CT Wedding Photographer~

Ryan & Kathleen were another couple that answered my model call.  I love photographing couples, especially when they look this good together!

We did the session at Buttonwood Farms in Griswold Ct, during the height of the Sunflowers for Wishes Event. It was crazy at this location, people everywhere, but I was able to give them some amazing images that made it look like wewere the only people there!

Every summer Buttonwood Farms grows fields of sunflowers, as far as the eye can see. At the end of the event the spend a week selling as many sunflowers as they can and all the proceeds are donated to the Make a Wish Foundation.  As crazy as it gets up there, it is all worth it.

Check out these gorgeous images and if you get the chance check out Buttonwood Farms' Sunflowers for Wishes Event!

~John & Nicole - Nathan Lester House, Gales Ferry, CT. - CT Wedding Photographer~

I put out a model call for couples in love. John and Nicole answered that call, and I am so glad they did!

The Nathan Lester House is one of my favorite places to shoot a session.  There is so much variety between the house, the barn, the garden, and the trails.

I had so much fun shooting this session, we laughed, they kissed, and I shot.  They are such a great couple and are clearly very much in love with each other.

~Siana - Mystic, CT. - CT Newborn Photographer~

Little Siana was a calm little one.  She loved being wrapped and snuggled by the soft white fur.  She could have slept for hours just like this.

Siana's newborn shoot was done in the comfort of their home.  I wasn't sure how the little one would do once we unwrapped her but she slept soundly just long enough for us to get some really amazing shots.
