Kate & Ryan’s Riverhouse wedding in Haddam, CT! With spring hibernating this year it was a bit of a cold one. That didn’t keep us all from grabbing some moments outside throughout the day. We grabbed a few shots along side the river after the ceremony and the rest up on the Riverhouse deck. The reception kicked off with heart felt speeches and remained full of love, laughter, and a dancin crowd in to the night. Congrats Kate & Ryan and all the best to you!

I had the chance to explore a bit of Stonington, CT with Marianna & Will for their coastal engagement session over the weekend.

A beautiful Priam Vineyards wedding in Colchester, CT. What a great venue! Kim & Scott put together a gorgeous event with their ceremony amongst the grape vines while the sun set in the background. I love the light we were able to capture at the end of the day and the amazing fall colors that surround the happy couple. They partied into the night with friends and family under the tent with a few breaks in between at the big bon fire that Priam had stoked. All the best to Kim & Scott in their new life together!
Sometimes I get a little choked up myself while viewing an event through the camera. Chrissy & Maegan’s wedding was one of those days. So grateful to be a part of and photograph such a special day.

A sunny ceremony overlooking the Hartford city skyline was followed by heartfelt speeches and super fun dance jams into the night. Congrats Chrissy & Maegan!!

A Bank Street Events wedding in Stamford, CT. Carissa & Brandon put together an amazing day!

Elizabeth and Anthony celebrated their big day at Aria in Prospect, CT. A bit of rain came, but thankfully Aria’s front lobby provided amazing window light that we utilized for some indoor portraits. What a great space to shoot! The ballrooms also are surrounded by windows for excellent natural light to work on the dance floor. Congrats to the happy couple. I had a great time capturing their Aria wedding!
One of my favorite aspects of weddings is seeing different cultural backgrounds & traditions come together.
