I had such a wonderful time with Danielle and John on their CT Rustic Engagement session. We started off at Huntington State Park in Redding CT, and then headed to a friends Barn practically across the street. Red cowboy boots, a red truck and a real working horse farm… can’t get much better than that! So grateful that the light was just perfect and their wasn’t a cloud in the sky for this happy couple. I can not wait till their wedding this fall! Many Congratulations!
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!

These two sweethearts were made in the heaves for each other! What a perfect match! They met first on one of the top online dating sites, Christian Mingle, and after their first ‘super date’ they knew it was forever. (check out this BLOG post about their first date, and how we re-created it for their engagement shoot) The wedding was nothing short of amazing. The Lounsbury House was one of the first places I ever shot a wedding and is one of my favorites. So much love, prayer and happiness poured out from every person there. Aimee and Mike, I can’t say enough good things about the two of you and your wedding. I am just so honored that I was the one who got to observe and receive all of the goodness out of the day. I wish the both of you a lifetime of love and happiness!
What a great show! Thank you to all the faculty, dancers, parents, volunteers and friends of Lathrop that make each and every event such a success! Here are just a few of my favorites from the show, to check out the rest please take a look at the ONLINE GALLERY. All I can say is I LOVE LATHROP! What an amazing family I am so blessed to be apart of!

Beautiful wedding rain or shine, and trust me… there was a lot of rain. No amount of rain, snow, or bad weather will keep me from getting the perfect shot. Thankfully the Fox Hill Inn has an incredible covered deck on their second floor and you would never know it was pouring out. Thank you to my beautiful bride and handsome groom, I was so happy to be part of your special day!
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!
Congratulations Linda and Joe, what a beautiful spring wedding it was! I just loved all the little DIY touches you put into your day. The gorgeous floral arrangements were designed by Floral Designs by Nancy in Danbury, CT. This cake was probably one of my favorites of all time though! The Waterview did a GREAT job! Linda and Joe love the great outdoors and their enthusiasm for all things ’natural’ was posted right on top of the cake itself! How brilliant! Vivid Events kept the party rocking the whole night too! It was so much fun! Thank you for sharing your wedding with us Linda and Joe, we loved being part of it!
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. The theme of the prom was ‘Arabian nights’ and boy did we deliver. The students, staff and even my staff just loved having fun in front of the camera. Thanks Danbury High School for choosing Karie Peterson Photography as your studio of choice. We can’t wait till next years Senior Prom! Big Thanks to Garrett, Jon, Chalise, Joe, Mrs. Pardalis and Ms. Teel! With out your help, none of this would have been possible.

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!
I spent such an incredible day with this couple, I can not wait for their wedding in October! We started at their families home with hair and makeup by the amazingly talented Sara from Bella Artistries and really got a chance to relax and do a pretend wedding day trial/walk through. We moved into the foyer for our first set of portraits. Such beautiful natural light was pouring in through the front door making it impossible to get a bad shot. The love and energy that these two share is beautiful to witness, they hugged and kissed all day long! Exactly what an engagement session should be! Then we headed over to a great new restaurant in Danbury called Market Place Kitchen and Bar for a little more dramatic look. These two have a passion for good wine and great food and this new modern American restaurant located in the heart of Danbury’s dining district was a perfect fit. The interior of the Market Place is compiled of sustainable and local materials, utilizing beautiful 300 year old barn wood from the Gurski Farm in Brookfield, CT. They also ‘celebrate and encourage local, organic, and sustainability harvested food‘. Amazing location, great food, huge wine selection and a phenomenal staff makes it one of my new favorite go to places. We then finished off our day at Spasi in Danbury. It’s where they had their first date, and we thought it was too cute and special not to stop by for a coupe of pictures. Many thanks to the couples family for inviting us to use their home, The Marketplace and to Spasi’s. We are so happy to share these images with you all.
