She made her way down the stairs toward her Dad, and the tears started flowing. For both of them. This moment was one he spent her whole life knowing would eventually come, but it was a moment he never could have fully prepared himself for. He pulled her in closed as he wiped his tears away, wrapped his arms around her, and managed to get out little more than “You remind me of your Mother on our wedding day. You’re just so beautiful”.

She made her way down the long aisle of grass toward the love of her life, and the tears started flowing. For both of them. This moment was one he spent his entire life knowing would eventually come, but it was one he never could have fully prepared himself for. Amanda radiated. From the top of her head to the tip of her (Jimmy Choo- clad) toes, she was nothing short of breathtaking. He held his breath and choked back the tears. It was evident to all that, in this moment, Mark was speechless.

Their wedding day was straight out of a storybook – that perfect 68 and sunny September day that every bride dreams of. A cool breeze blowing in off the water, champagne poured in the sunshine, and friends and family gathered around with the biggest smiles on their faces. Truly, it could not have been a more perfect day. From the moment I first met Amanda and Mark, I knew that their wedding was going to be epic. Effortlessly planned and fabulously coordinated by Hannah of Eloquence Events, and carried out by the amazing staff at Belle Haven Club, their wedding is one for the books. The only regret for everyone involved was that their absolutely perfect day flew by far too quickly.

Amanda and Mark, I can’t thank you enough for choosing us to document your wedding day. Not only was it a tremendous honor and privilege, but it was an absolute blast!! Here’s to many more shoots as you continue to choose to love each other year after year, and as you eventually start a family together 🙂

Upon learning that I would be visiting Ireland this summer, I knew I had to set up a couple shoots in the iconic parts of Ireland. I love the Irish countryside with it’s castles, moats, and windy roads (though driving them was certainly nerve wracking!) but nothing steals my heart like architecture. One look at my website, and you’ll quickly notice how obsessed I am with some of the older European cities. After borrowing a stunning Truvelle gown from Everthine Bridal in CT, I met up with Sophie and Roy to photograph them int he courtyard of Trinity college in the heart of Dublin, Ireland.  I shot this session entirely on medium format film, because I knew that these cobblestone streets of Dublin, Ireland, begged to be photographed on film. The rain fell down here and there during our session, but it didn’t stop us from having an AMAZING time!

As Jennifer stepped into her delicate gown made of lace and chiffon and her mother looped the buttons, one by one, a stream of golden light flooded in.  It poured through the large wall of windows and engulfed every inch of the room where the magic was happening.  The bride’s hair reflected yellow tones as she floated gracefully about, getting ready for her dramatic and anxiously awaited debut.  Her skin, like precisely painted porcelain, glistened as she shifted her attention to her bridesmaids. It was almost time.

        As her doting groom stood at the end of the aisle patiently awaiting her arrival, the sun shone on.  A photographer’s dream, it highlighted soft beauty in all the right places. Nothing was immune to its touch as it beamed down on an act of great love. Friends and family alike could feel its comforting warmth and see its dazzling affect as they watched Jennifer make her way to Xavier, who was waiting for her under a lush gazebo.

        The sun provided the dreamiest of light throughout both ceremony and cocktail hour. And when it was time for it to retire, it did so in sublime fashion.  As it set, and prepared to say goodnight, it left a sky of cotton-candy colors. Pinks, purples, oranges and yellows all working together to create the most treasured of skies. The sun’s warmth and light was constant throughout their wedding day, never leaving their side. A bright reminder that the commitment Jennifer and Xavier shared with one another was strong enough to illuminate anything it touched.

 

Jennifer and Xavier got married on the most beautiful late-summer day at the absolutely stunning Lord Thompson Manor in Thompson, CT. We LOVE work at LTM for so many reason, not the least of which is that their grounds are breathtaking. They go above and beyond for every one of their clients, and treat them like family. Ever client of ours who has ever gotten married their has raved about their experience….and it’s one we, too, can attest to as photographers.

It was the absolute most perfect summer day as Lauren and Jon promised forever to either other. From the moment we first met these two via Google hangout, we knew that they would be so much fun to work with. They are carefree and laid back, clearly in love with each other, and just a ton of fun to be around. From their engagement session in Boston, to the emails back and forth, we knew all along that hanging out with them on their wedding day was going to be nothing but a good time. There wasn’t the slightest bit of tension or stress during their wedding day. Lauren planned every single detail to perfection, dotted every “i” and crossed every “t”, and when it came time for her wedding day everything went off without a single hitch….exactly as she had hoped! Surrounded by the best group of people they know, they said “I do” at the Essex Steam Train station and then too a train ride with all of their friends and family up to the AMAZING Lace Factory in Deep River, where they danced the night away.

 

Lauren and Jon, our hope and prayer for you is that your marriage is even more beautiful than your wedding day…which is going to be really hard, cause your wedding was nothing short of perfection 😉

I first met Andrea yearsssssss ago when we attended bible school together. We didn’t know each other terribly well and had different friend circles but, as she recently commented to me, “I don’t know why we never got close enough to see how awesome we both are”. And years later, having now shot her wedding and their anniversary session in Ireland, I would say that I have to agree. I first met James when I photographed their wedding, and it was clear that he was the perfect match for Andrea – Able to keep up with her quick wit and humor, but also steady and strong. I don’t remember which came first – Andrea jokingly asking if I would be in Ireland this summer, or me saying it was an option on the table, but as soon as I made the decision that I would be going to Ireland, i reached out to see if there as any chance we would be there the same time. As luck would have it, our paths crossed by just a couple days, which was enough for us to meet up on the set coast or Ireland, and do an epic anniversary session. it was POURING rain that morning. Like. Downpouring. Monsoon style. But, always up for an adventure, Andrea and James put on their happy faces and made the most of it. And i’m so glad they did, because we had a fantastic time poking around Corcomroe Abbey in the rain.
