Summer Wedding at The Waterview | Connecticut Wedding Photographers

You know sometimes when you just have one of those perfect days? The kind where everything goes right and you just smile through the entire day? That’s what Cody & Ben’s wedding at The Waterview felt like. We started with getting ready photos in the bridal suite, which has these huge windows and tons of natural light. Cody and her girls hung out there together for gifts, champagne toasts, and to get dressed for the ceremony. Oh, and did I mention she did a first look with her dad? Always a great moment when we get to capture it amidst the chaos of the anticipation before the wedding ceremony…

Cody and Ben chose to see each other at the ceremony for the first time, where Ben couldn’t take his eyes off her as she walked down the aisle with her dad. Their ceremony included their adorable ring-bearer (who ran down the aisle), a heartfelt reading by Cody’s sister (also her Maid of Honor), a wine box with letters (my favorite wedding ceremony tradition), and a first kiss with a huge dip! Cody’s brother officiated their wedding, which gave such a personal touch. Their smiles were infectious as they walked back down the aisle after being pronounced married.

We spent cocktail hour with their bridal party and closest family members to take group photos overlooking the water, then began the reception with their entrances, first dance, and toast. Their reception included the Hava Nagila with the chair raises, which is always such an exciting moment to photograph both the couple and the crowd’s reactions.

Thank you to Brenda De Los Santos for being such a wonderful second shooter for this wedding!

Congratulations, Cody & Ben!

XOXO

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!

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!
