‘I Pick You’ to spend the rest of my life, is what Joe and Kim will say to each other in August of 2015! I am so excited for their wedding. These two are creative, passionate and so totally in LOVE!
Here’s a peek at this adorable apple orchard inspired creative engagement session at Blue Jay Orchards in Bethel, CT.
Oh I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am for this wedding next July! Congratulations Clare and Joe!
This bride is so creative and I love how unique their session was. Love and Football baby! Our bride wanted a rustic, natural setting as her backdrop and our football coach groom wanted to go to the football field. Now since our bride is this coach’s biggest cheerleader, heading down to the ol’ Blue and Gold field was no problem at all! We had so much fun! I love the props that we used too. The huge ‘&’ sign was provided by my favorite boutique shop in Southbury, Respond if you Please and the bride wrote out the most awesome save the date on the football. I can’t wait to see what we’ll do for the wedding!
Jenna and Jon choose one of my favorite areas to in CT for their session. The greater Litchfield area is so picturesque and I love that this area held sentimental value to this couple. We started out at the most beautiful flower farm I’ve ever been to called White Flower Farm in Litchfield, CT. The gardens were unbelievable and the staff so sweet! They were so excited to share with us the beauty of their family owed flower farm and we were grateful to have received it. We then went for a little hike and explored a nature preserve boardwalk through the wetlands of Litchfield. Didn’t see any amazing birds fly over head, but defiantly witnessed some sweet moments with Jenna and Jon as they snuggled in for some sweet hugs and kisses. Then we were off to our favorite place of the night, Sunset Meadows Vineyards! We had just enough light to fit in some really great shots of these two love birds!
I love that we got so collaboratively creative and really thought out and planned our session so perfectly with not only the light, but with the sentimental value that each place held for this couple. If you have some ideas of your own and are interested in an engagement session or just one for fun with your hunny or family, give me a call. I want to hear all about your love story and how we can help bring it to life.

A romantic picnic in the park was the perfect setting for our creative engagement session with Nicole and Brett. I love how fun and adventurous this couple is, hiking up to the lake, climbing on trees, and even rolling around in the grass for a few really great shots.
Congrats guys! Can’t wait for the wedding!
3 locations, 3 events, 1 amazing couple! An engagement session at Southford Falls, a private wedding ceremony on the green of Southbury Town Hall and the perfect venue to celebrate it all, The Heritage Hotel. Many congratulations to Emily and Stephen! It was a true gift to witness and capture such special occasions in their lives.
Here’s to a lifetime of Love and Happiness!
Locust Grove is such a magical location for a wedding and especially this engagement session! We had such perfect lighting and a really fun loving couple to work with. I am so looking forward to their wedding coming up later this … Continue reading
Since moving to Newtown, CT earlier this year I’ve made it my goal to really explore my new stomping grounds. When Dayna and Mike described their vision for an engagement session I knew the perfect little hidden spot to bring them. We started at the covered bridge down the street from our new house and worked out way to Main St. in Newtown for a little stroll down the prettiest street I’ve ever seen! Then it was over the a little hidden park where the setting sun provided us with some incredibly dreamy light! Working with these two was a blast and I can’t wait for the wedding!
Joy, laughter, happiness and Love fill me up during every newborn session and this little precious one was no exception. Had a great time working with 3 generations of this family and am looking forward to watching baby Milania grow up and to capture all the wonderful milestones that are coming your way.

I’ve had a lot of inquiry’s from my brides lately who want to do their engagement sessions on the beach, and I am all for it! I love the water and it was such a treat to photograph such a beautiful couple at such a beautiful place. The weather was a little gray, but not us! We laughed, watched from a distance a wedding at the mansion, and avoided the seagulls as we walked the whole park. So much fun! Congratulations Stephanie and Kenny!
What a night! It’s been over 10 years since I was at my last prom, and I was so honored when asked to return as the Photographer for such a fun event.

Oh I can’t wait for this couples wedding in May! So not only are they having their reception at the Waterview, but we’re doing their portraits on the mountain behind the Waterview. That’s where we started today, at the couples home. What an amazing dream location! Beautiful light, hand forged stone steps, walkways, gazebos and archways. As a Photographer… can I ask for anything more? So excited to work with you Linda and Joe! Congratulations!
I met with this couple just about a year ago when they booked their wedding with me, and my how things have changed. They now have a beautiful 6 month old daughter who is such a joy to be around, and it’s only 3 months till the wedding! This family is a dream to photograph and I can not wait till their wedding in July at the Wadsworth Mansion. It is going to be such a special occasion! Congratulations BJ, Beth and Maddy!
