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!
Sun shine, love and landscapes… a picture perfect May wedding! When discussing where to take family and bridal party pictures with the Bride and Groom, my heart instantly knew that Tarrywile Park in Danbury, CT would be the perfect place to take them. We started the day at the families home in Ridgefield, CT and headed down to St. Peter’s in Danbury for a beautiful wedding mass. Tarrywile was our next stop on the list. The background was just brilliant and we couldn’t have been blessed with a better day. For the reception we headed to the Salem Golf Club in North Salem, NY. The outdoor patio overlooking the green was filled with gorgeous natural light and it was a rare treat to see the bride and groom enjoy cocktail hour with all of their guests. Onto the first dance, toasts and a packed dance floor all night long, this couple knew how to throw a party! Congratulations Trina and Mike! It was a privilege to be part of such a special day!
**To a Lifetime of Love and Happiness!** Cheers

There are so many wonderful things to say about Jess and Devin! These two LOVE like no other! They were surrounded by all of their family and friends for their Ridgefield/Greenwich, CT seaside wedding at l’escale Restaurant and the Delamar Hotel and Harbor. There was so much adventure! Jess and her 13 bridesmaids first traveled from her childhood home to St. Mary’s in Ridgefield, CT via trolley! Then, as if that wasn’t cool enough, once we got to the reception location the entire 28 person wedding party, my team and I sailed for 2 hours aboard the Prudence. Delamar’s very own Yacht! Then it was onto the party which had no off switch! I’ve never seen a dance floor packed for so long! However, when guests weren’t moving and grooving on the dance floor there was still plenty to do, taste and experience. They enjoyed snacks from a vintage candy bar, ice cream cone station, fresh made popcorn, caricature portraits done by a professional artist and cotton candy! Seriously amazing! Jess and Devin, I loved working with you both and really enjoyed feeling like one of the family! Here’s to a lifetime of Love and Happiness where all your dreams come true! Love ~K
I just love Lauryn and Jared! Congratulations to you both and your families! It was such a wonderful day and we thank you all so much for sharing it with us! We started the day getting ready at the brides child hood home with mom, dad, grandma and all the bridesmaid. Makeup was done by the talented Candee Caldwell. We headed over for a beautiful ceremony at St. Mary’s in Bethel, CT and our reception was at the ever fabulous The Fox Hill Inn! DJ Dave Parks from Spin Doctor Entertainment kept the party rockin’ all night long and the staff at The Fox Hill Inn is just spectacular! The best part of the day for me was to photograph the bride and groom in front of a vintage 1950’s F-150, once I tracked down the truck and we hid from the rain it made for some GREAT shots of this bridal party!
Many Congratulations and a lifetime of love and Happiness goes out to our bride and groom!
Enjoy this little sneak peek from an amazing day!
