Sally & Jason chose the Warner Theater as the backdrop for their winter engagement session. After braving the cold for some fun outdoor shots (Torrington has some great spots nearby) we headed in to utilize the theater’s beautiful patterns & textures. I’m looking forward to working with this awesome couple again soon!
Brian, Alison and I had just about every kind of light to work with for their fall engagement session at Chamard. What a great location -the wine cellar, foliage and expansive grounds provided plenty of photographic awesomness! Thank you Alison & Brian for being yourselves and helping put together some great photos. Looking forward to [...]
What a day! After a morning shower, perfect weather rolled in for Kathleen & Austin’s wedding on the Cape with a Sandy Neck Beach ceremony followed by their reception at The Brookside Club.

Alison & Mik …a Riverview wedding! What a great way to end the 2012 season. Alison & Mik’s winter wedding was full of great moments from start to finish.

It’s been the year of “almost stormy” weekends! Hillary & Anthony timed it right at the New Haven Country Club.

Pumpkins, guns, processional dance jams…what didn’t this wedding have….Friday the 13th Crystal Lake re-enactment? …oh wait, that happened too :) Jes & Rocco planned a super fun & entertaining event at the Pavilion at Crystal Lake. There was definitely not a dull moment! I had a great time capturing and documenting this not so traditional [...]
Melissa & Joe- thank you for having me as your photographer. From the prep, to the special moments on the dance floor – I had a great time capturing your images. I love the B&W’s in this edit….thanks for taking a few minutes to sneak out from the reception for the moonlit shot- definitely worth [...]
Had a great time with Melody & Alex at Chamard Vineyard & Hammonasset State Park! Loved the engagement session romance in combination with good ol’ silly fun! Can’t wait to work with the happy couple at their Branford House wedding!
What a day! Rain indoors but not out….a first for me at a wedding :) Despite a ‘small’ leak from the roof on their wedding reception, the party went on! Chris & Jess are an amazing couple and I had a great time spending the day photographing them. I loved the non-traditional tweaks they gave [...]
Planning your wedding out of state? No problem! Ann Marie & Kevin have their wedding planned out of state but wanted to use some areas of New Haven as the backdrop in an engagement session.

Christine & Matt at the Riverview! Christine & Matt planned a great winter wedding and did things right with a stop at Hartford City Hall for photos in between.

I love shooting at the Webb Barn. The beautiful gardens and intimate setting were perfect for Danielle & Jimmy’s summer wedding. Thanks for having me as a part of the day & congrats to you both! Your wedding definitely gets the ‘best socks’ award :)
A little rain in the forecast? No problem! Melissa & Mike laughed through their mid-wedding day monsoon (see photo proof above) that decided to show up during our river side portrait attempt. I figure if they can laugh through a wedding day down pour, they can make it through anything. The crazy weather allowed for [...]
Had the pleasure of working with “Z&K” in this Easthampton, Mass. park for the afternoon. Got some awesome photos with some awesome kids! Love the range in these photos…from serious to straight up goofs!
Lori & Mike had no shortage of locations for photos at their Farmington Club wedding. We had some time in between the ceremony & the reception so we took advantage of it! There was a stop along the CT river and even a wine tasting stop at Arrigoni Winery in Portland, CT. Big thanks to [...]
A perfect summer day at Elizabeth Park for evening engagement photos! An especially suitable location seeing as Alison & Mik got engaged here on the park bench seen in the photos. Can’t wait to shoot their wedding later this year!
What an awesome day for an outdoor wedding. Lindsey & Marannie celebrated with family and friends on the new 360 State St. 6th floor rooftop. I had a great time photographing the day and it’s unique schedule, complete with a Capoeira performance and modern dance piece during the ceremony!

I had the great opportunity of working with the Heart Gallery in Connecticut again last week. It’s an awesome program set up through DCF that partners with photographers to help some of the local youth out. Here’s a couple shots from our shoot at Edgewood Park in Hamden, CT. Because “J” is still a minor, [...]
Big thanks to Lindsay & Dave for having me at their Society Room wedding in Hartford, CT. An amazing location for an amazing couple- Congrats! From the bar photos at Vaughan’s, to lighting up Pratt St. for some fun night shots…it was a great day to capture!
Devil’s Hopyard was an great backdrop for Patrice & Will’s engagement session. Risking their lives on rock cliffs and wading through rivers, they pulled off a great photo session! (as did the kids who came along to laugh….I mean cheer them on!)

I had the opportunity of shooting this event as a second shooter with Jesse Anders -another great photographer whom I often shoot with in CT. Check out Jesse’s blogsite at: On Point Images for more great [...]
Had a great time with Jess & Justin for their engagement shoot. Yale was a great choice and we ended up having amazing weather to work with. The architecture and surroundings are so diverse and beautiful- it’s more like narrowing down where to shoot, as opposed to looking for places to shoot! Jess & Justin [...]
A great sunny day wedding in August. Other than a close call on the beach, (nearly melting) we all survived. With St. John’s church, Harkness state park, and the Old Saybrook Point Inn….there was no shortage of scenic spots to photograph at. Erica & Greg, you were great to work with (and your HUGE wedding [...]

So this was definitely the first time I’ve seen a bride walk the aisle ON horseback… dress poof and all. Jenni-Rae pulled it off with no casualties! Harkness is a great spot with beautiful architecture, gardens, and water views. Jenni & Brandon thanks for having me join you in capturing your day, you both rocked [...]
What a beautiful day we had. This June has been the rainiest I can remember, but Emma & Bobby had no such weather. This was great as it allowed us to take full advantage of the great grounds at the Branford House in Groton, CT. The wedding was full of life, laughter, tears, and special [...]
What a great day with Nicole & Ken at the Holcombe House. The bench in the last photo has special meaning as it was a gift from Ken to Nicole. I believe the story is that it’s the bench he proposed to her on…and went back to purchase, refinish, and give as a present. Awesome!
Loved capturing this wedding and it’s vintage feel. Christa & Joel put together a great day at Lyric Hall in New Haven, CT. Previously a theater, the venue was perfect for their event vibe which was complete with speakeasy style bar and fake mustaches to go around.
Anchor beach in Milford was a great setting for this fun fam. shoot! Love the little one rocking it in the first action shot! A great day for photos with this great fam!
This was my first time out to Block Island for an engagement session. What a great location! So many awesome spots for photos….only thing better than that is having a great couple to work with. Thanks Melissa & Mike!

Amazing light for an amazing day at the Waterview with Emily & Scott. The Waterview has great big windows to let it all in, and we were able to sneak outside during the reception for some more dramatically lit night shots!
Tiffany & Michael braved the rain well at their Amarante’s wedding in New Haven, CT. Good thing about Connecticut is that we rarely have days where is straight downpours all day. We were able to sneak out for some fun portraits on the deck with umbrellas in tow….and this was the first time for me [...]
What can I say -Block Island is gorgeous! Lauren & Brian set up an amazing event at the Sullivan House for their special day. Great views of the harbor + great couple & crowd = super fun to photograph. A first for me at this wedding- riding a bike to the event! Gotta love the [...]
The Hartford capitol building provided a great backdrop for Sabrina & Phil’s wedding portraits. The reception followed at the Hartford, CT Marriott. I love when a day is spread out with lots of diversity for photographic backgrounds and lighting. Thanks Sabrina & Phil!
Congratulations to Sara & Mike! I joined them at their Rocky Neck State Park Pavilion wedding. This was my first time at this location….what a great place! The building was so unique in look and shape -and the surroundings were beautiful as well. All the best to you both in your new life together. Props [...]
