The Comstock Covered Bridge in Colchester was the perfect setting for Ashley and AJ’s engagement session. When Ashley said she wanted something very rustic and woodsy I was all for it. I think my favorite part was that they brought Aj’s pride and joy old truck. I can’t wait to photograph this sweet couples wedding next fall because we had so much fun in the short time just walking around the bridge. I lost count how many times we had to stop because we were laughing so hard we snorted. Yup you read that correct. I was so excited that they chose me to be their photographer after shooting Ashley Matron of Honors wedding last year. Its the biggest form of flattery when your new brides come from your old brides. It means so much to me. Thank you Ashley and Aj for having a fun evening with me!
These two are among the very best men and woman who give their lives to those who are in need without hesitation. I was so honored to have the opportunity to photograph Kaci and Larry’s engagement session at the local fire station they both volunteer their time at together. We had so much fun running around the fire station and then we were so lucky that Kaci’s relative grows grass. Yup you read that correct he grows grass so we got to use the really pretty fresh lawn to finish there session. The colors of the gorgeous fall tress where to die for and mixed with the dark green grass I was in heaven. We laughed and played games and Larry even gave Kaci a piggy back ride to end the night. I am so excited to photograph this sweet couples August wedding this year. I can’t believe its right around the corner already.
Preston Ridge has the most gorgeous grounds for a wedding. The ceremony overlooks the most beautiful part of their property and my favorite section of the vineyard. Sunsets here are out of this world filled with beautiful light that makes anyone fall in love. Christina and Nathan said their I do’s right as the sun was setting and boy did we have a gorgeous one that day. They chose to do a first look which all my couples know how much I truly love doing first looks. It really gives you as a couple the time to just relax and take in the moments before all the hustle and bustle of the day begins. Once the ceremony happens the day flies by in a blink of an eye and before you know it your off on your honey moon. This beautiful DIY rustic wedding finished the night under the big white tent filled with lots of love and laughter. Dancing and a little cake smashing into each others face was the highlight of the night. Before we left I snuck this adorable couple out for some end of the night portraits with the venues famous tree on the property. I just love all the twinkle lights and how they are meticulously layered up and down the whole tree. I can’t wait to share more wedding with you soon so come back and check in often!

Getting ready in your childhood bedroom with your mom is every little girls dream when we grow up. Well Lauren had this dream come true on her wedding day. Meanwhile with the guys Casey’s dad showed everyone how to be a true gentleman and put his wife shoes on for her when she could not reach her straps. Lauren and Casey chose to hold their ceremony in a local church in Mystic CT followed by a romantic reception at Latitude 41. That moment when Lauren got ready to walk down the isle to her groom in waiting the anticipation with the biggest smile on her face. Did we have a blunder of yes we did… As her handsome groom looked at her from the front of the isle as her custom veil made by a sweet family member got stuck in the church doors Casey could not help but have the biggest smile on his face wondering what was going on and why she was not walking to him. Lauren is such a go with the flow bride she threw the veil to the side and continued on to her groom in waiting with a smile. After saying their sweet I Do’s we proceeded to the Mystic Seaport for bridal party portraits. Oh the many places to use at the Seaport. I could play there all day but we had to get them to their party. Details are one of my most favorite parts of every wedding day. As all my couples know from seeing my portfolio I spend a lot of time on details. So when you give a tons I giggle with excitement. These two shared an epic first dane filled with a dip and laughter and then onto the fun! Their band did NOT disappoint and had the party going all night long.
