Old Wethersfield Fall Engagement Session | Connecticut Wedding Photographers

As most of you know, we have a soft spot in our hearts for Old Wethersfield. I was married at The Webb Barn and our studio was located just down Main Street for years. We’ve spent many afternoons window shopping and grabbing lunch at Cove Deli, and The Webb Barn is one of our favorite rustic wedding venues to photograph! So of course I was excited when Amanda told me that John proposed to her down at the Cove and that they wanted to have their engagement session there! There’s nothing like fall in New England, and Old Wethersfield is small town perfection. We’re excited to be photographing Amanda & John’s wedding at The Lace Factory in 2019 - congratulations, you two!

Harkness Memorial State Park | Connecticut Engagement Sessions

Victoria & Mark's engagement session at Harkness Memorial State Park was lighthearted and fun, with a little bit of adventure mixed in. I love a good rock skipping session, and that little peninsula made for some beautiful reflection shots! Here are a few favorite highlights from this springtime session...

The Waterview | Connecticut Wedding Photographers

Sarah & Nick's wedding was one of those days where everything just goes perfectly. They chose to do a "first touch" before the wedding ceremony and exchanged handwritten letters with one another, in lieu of a first look. The grounds at The Waterview were a gorgeous backdrop for their ceremony and their ballroom provided a mix of elegance and whimsy through the floral design. It was easy to find little touches of their personalities and their relationship together, but my favorite has to be the LEGO bride and groom in front of their cake! We ended the night with a few night photos outside near the fountain before saying goodnight. XOXO, Sarah & Nick! We are so happy for you both and hope you are able to reminisce over your day and remember all of the moments that made it truly yours!

Butternut Farm Golf Club Wedding | Massachusetts Wedding Photographers

I was so excited when Becky and Ben chose us to photograph their July wedding, because I've known Becky for years and knew it would be a beautiful day. We began at her family's home in Leominster, MA with getting ready photos before the ceremony. It's funny when you've been somewhere to visit so many times, yet you notice new things that you've never observed before. Things like the pattern on the dining room chairs, the wicker textures in the sun room, or the way the light comes in so pretty through the windows in the front living room. I guess it's the photographer in me - so many details and seeing things so differently.

One of my favorite parts of the wedding day is almost always the ceremony. It’s usually short and sweet, but there are so many once-in-a-lifetime moments that happen between the couple. For instance, the moment Ben saw Becky and her dad walking down the aisle, or the way they were smiling at each other while holding hands on the altar. Witnessing that moment of excitement when they’re pronounced husband and wife, and seeing their guests look so incredibly happy. Becky and Ben chose to recreate a photo from her parents’ wedding, with their bridal party and parents on the steps of the church, which I love. It’s such a meaningful photo, created with thought and sentiment, and one of those photos that will likely be looked at and truly treasured through the years until you are sitting with your children someday and planning their wedding days. You’ll show them your wedding album and talk about style, planning, trends…but then you’ll come across that photo and explain to them the sentiment of recreating something from the past, and it will be so special.

Once we arrived at Butternut Farm Golf Club for their reception, I couldn’t have felt more welcome. Carol gave us a little walkthrough so that we could see a few different spots to choose from for their group portraits. By the time the toasts came, I was laughing over Becky’s twin sister, Chrissy’s toast (that included a story about a spatula) and couldn’t believe that their wedding day was flying by so quickly. Guests danced to music by East Coast Soul, and the dance floor was packed the entire night.

To Becky & Ben – I feel honored to have been chosen to photograph your wedding, and I’m so incredibly happy for the two of you! XOXO
