At Home Engagement Session | Connecticut Engagement Session Photographers

I feel like I’ve known Mary Beth forever, even though it’s probably only been the past few years of working together. When she met Will, I was so incredibly happy for her and thought they were a perfect match! My husband and Will were able to travel with Mary Beth and I as we photographed a destination wedding in Cancun, Mexico! Their engagement session began in downtown Wallingford, CT and ended at their home, which was a great way to celebrate their love. You’ll see a mix of laughter, sweet moments, edgy style, and SO MUCH FUN with their dogs and a bottle of champagne to share! Who wants to break out the next bottle of champagne at a session??? Got dogs??? All of a sudden it seems like all of my clients have dogs and I couldn’t be happier to photograph for them now that I’m a self-proclaimed converted cat lover. Haha!

To Mary Beth and Will,

Thank you for trusting us to capture these moments for you, and for being your genuine selves. You are relationship goals.

XOXO,

~Kathy

Dreams Riviera Cancun Mexico | Destination Wedding Photographers

Laura & Brian’s destination wedding at Dreams Riviera Cancun Resort & Spa was A-MAZing. When we photograph destination weddings, we’re able to meet our couples up in the U.S. beforehand. Laura & I sat at the studio together so she could tell me all about their wedding plans while I asked questions about travel, timeline, and style for the day. Mary Beth Morrissey accompanied me for the trip to Cancun as a second shooter for this wedding, and we had so much fun getting to know Laura & Brian’s friends and family throughout the week we spent in Mexico.

Destination weddings are always both so unique and laid-back, with friends & family coming from all over the world. Each destination wedding photography package is designed to cover what the couple needs for the wedding day, as well as time for photography scouting and meeting with the event coordinator beforehand if there are questions. We absolutely love destination weddings.

Maternity Session | Connecticut Maternity Photographers

There is nothing better than when our clients come back to us after their wedding! It often feels like our clients are good friends after we've gotten to know them through the wedding process. Heather and Ricky had a Boston engagement session and we photographed their wedding in Middletown, CT (which was GORGEOUS). We stay in touch a little via social media, but it was so nice to see them again to photograph a maternity session. Heather and I share a love for Outlander and Harry Potter (really, all reading...), traveling, pets, and I can't wait to follow her and Ricky's parenting journey! 

Backyard Tented Wedding | Connecticut Wedding Photographers

My first wedding in Ellington, CT!!!!! I was so excited to photograph Jessica & Eric's wedding because Ellington is my hometown. This was a beautiful backyard tented wedding at Jessica's parents' home, overlooking the town from the hill. Seriously - the view was a stunner. For those of you familiar with town, we were close to the Ellington Airport and could see much of "downtown".

Jessica's gown had delicate lace and beading, and her reception dress was perfect for both dancing and mingling. It had hints of blush pink, matching her bridal party perfectly. We photographed their outdoor wedding ceremony along benches overlooking the view, where they performed a sand ceremony that included Jessica's daughter. It was such a sweet moment and one of those emotion-filled portions of the day that we love capturing.

Between the bridal party portraits and the tented candlelit reception, there was no shortage of fun moments, but my favorite was probably The Cupcake Bug! Luann's Bakery in Ellington, CT provided the cake and desserts for the wedding, sending the cupcakes in a VW Bug during the reception. 

Thank you for choosing us as your wedding photographers! We had fun with you two and your entire day was absolutely wonderful! XOXO, Kathy
