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.
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!
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!
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 love spring weddings! Especially at one of my favorite place to shoot, Tarrywile Park and Mansion in Danbury, CT. This wedding was a perfect kick off to the 2013 Wedding Season! We’re gearing up for our busiest year yet! Congratulations Maureen and Tom! Wishing you a lifetime of Love and Happiness!
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 was thrilled when asked to accompany this entourage to NC for some very special nuptials. North Carolina was beautiful in the late fall. We attended our first Southern Thanksgiving and Wedding all in the same weekend! We enjoyed beautiful weather, great locations and created some fantastic memories. I am so please to share a sneak peak into our first on location wedding down south. The ceremony was held at the amazing Pullen Park in Raleigh NC and the reception was an intimate affair held at the couples home.
Rustic, timeless and stunning are just a few keywords that describe this wedding. We started the day getting ready at Shampoo One in East Hartford, CT. The girls popped the first bottle of Champagne at the salon and that was it… the party was officially started. Ceremony was held at the historic First Church of Christ in Wethersfield, CT. The reception was held down the street at the impressive Webb Barn. The gardens were amazing, full of bright vibrant colors and all of the little DIY Projects that the bride created made all the difference in the ambiance of the evening.
Many Thanks to the good folks over at Newtown Savings bank for honoring me as the featured business of the month in the months of September and October. It’s great to feel the support and encouragement from a local successful business pushing you to concur your dreams.
This couple is very special to us here at Karie Peterson Photography! I was thrilled when I heard that Mike proposed! I couldn’t get on the phone fast enough once that infamous ring shot was posted to Facebook. I have known the Bride-to-be my whole life and of course knew the story of how this couple met, so we thought it would be hilarious to re-in act that fateful night and give Famous Pizza in Bethel, CT a little shout out too! The story goes, that one late Summer evening a group of friends were hanging out and here comes Lissa with her hot Famous Pizza’s. She goes to her hot rod of a Civic turns up Country music and sits on the roof of her car and starts chowing down. Now to everyone else there… that’s normal.. That’s just Lissa being Lissa but not to Mike… oh no… just as she had stolen his pepperoni right from off his pizza…she also made it off with his heart that night too. I can not wait to attend there wedding next year! It’s going to be filled with love, laughter… and hopefully… some Famous Pizza J
The love that this couple share for one another was evident the moment I met them. I just knew this wedding was going to be special! It was as if magic was in the air all day. It was a miracle when the pouring rain stopped the second the girls were done getting ready! There was so much warmth and positive energy that just radiated out of every person at this wedding. I felt as if I was attending a wedding of a close family member. It was a true honor to bear witness to such a true love story and am so pleased to share the memories and moments that captured your Wedding Day. I wish you both a lifetime of happiness and love!
What a special Engagement session we had at Cranbury Park in Norwalk CT. This park is where this Bride-to-be’s late parents took their wedding portraits. This is also the same spot that her groom-to-be asked for her hand in marriage. We had a perfect day walking around the park, reenacting the special proposal and really getting to know each other on and off camera. I am really looking forward to their wedding, I have a feeling its going to be something really special!
