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!

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!
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!
Congratulations to two of my most favorite people in the world as they welcome their second child into the world. Welcome you sweet girl! I can not wait to be apart of your life, watch you grow and capture all of your life’s special milestones.
So happy to share baby Bella’s Easter Portraits with you all. Check out the fun card we designed! Who wouldn’t want that cutie face on their fridge? I’m keeping mine up all year long! Happy Easter Everyone!
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.
Happy Wine glass! We just love how the wine bottles make the shape of a smiley face!
Watch out cover of GQ! I think we have found your next model!
Another great session! Showing off personality, confidence and success. This client was looking to update his about us page for his company’s website and these images are just absolutely perfect for it! They really show off his style and personality, making him even more approachable to prospective clients. If it’s been 10 years since your last professional portrait, or your using a cell phone picture of you at a bbq for your business page… it’s time my friend… time for you to invest in you and your company‘s image. Email me Info@KariePetersonPhotography.com and tell me about your needs for creating more online exposure and I’ll let you know how I can help you achieve your goals.
We had such a great time with this local professional here at the studio. Our goal was to provide our client with incredible head shots that she would be proud to show off on her website, blog, social media sites and her business card. As a photographer it is my goal to create a comfortable, safe, and trusting atmosphere for my clients. I want you to look as comfortable and feel as confident as possible about yourself always, but especially in front of the camera. Our session began with hair and makeup artistry by one of my favorite artists, Beauty by Christine. She has perfected the art of creating you as you are, just the 2.0 version (as she says). Her talent and technique is top notch and creates such a polished finished look that you won’t even need any unnatural retouching in your final images.
When you are your business, like so many local professionals are, you should 100% make the investment into putting your best face forward. Online advertising, marketing, profile pictures, business cards… this is what is in the hands and minds of your clients. Lead with what you believe in… yourself! I can help you create the look, style and professionalism in your business portraits. Put your trust in the hands of a professional. Email me for event dates and individual sessions for the Re-do-you-do sessions. Event dates coming in April and May. Info@KariePetersonPhotography.com or 203.885.5597

I am absolutely in love with baby Q’s portraits! He was such a dream to work with! Enjoy some precious moments from our afternoon spent together.

12 Year old Sommer is on her way to the cat walk and newsstands around the country! What a knock out! She is defiantly bound for success in the modeling world! Great personality, amazingly beautiful and so kind hearted! All the traits that you need in this industry to be successful! I had a great time with Sommer, her mom and sister during our session. We were shooting for the intended purpose of creating a composite card to send out to modeling agencies in the City. The card is simple, clean and timeless. I love how I can already envision her in a fashion catalog sporting all the latest teen trends!
Our new Mama is so stunning! Her Pre-natal glow just radiated throughout her images and all the happiness and excitement filled the room during her session. I am so honored to have captured such a precious time in her life. I can not wait to meet baby Q! Stay tuned for a precious little newborn session happening very very soon.
Isn’t this so much fun! So happy she brought Baby’s first Picture!
Aimee and Michael are a match made in internet Heaven. Both were looking to meet the right person when Michael came across Aimee’s profile on Christian Mingle. After several emails and text messages, they finally decided to talk on the phone. That quickly led to an obvious next step – to meet in person. The first get together, or “super date,” was an all day affair. It started with church (a pretty safe place to meet a virtual stranger) and from there they went on to lunch, Barnes and Noble, Starbucks, shopping at the mall and a movie. Neither one wanted the date to end – it was love at first site. From day one they have been inseparable. By the end of that first date Michael knew he had met his future wife. (She was pretty sure too!)
So for such a special couple, I decided we had to pull out all the stops and recreate their ‘Super Date’. We started with some coffee and creativity at our favorite new roasting company, Redding Roasters in Bethel CT. Then stopped in at The Rainy Day book Store, right next door. Coffee and a Book… genius!! I love natural light and all things outdoors, so we made a quick stop where the light was just right, and warmed right back up with a trip to Molten Java and Byrds Books in Bethel, CT. It was so great to capture such variety within the same theme. Loved all of our locations and am very Thankful that all of the owners were thrilled to have us visit for a few portraits!
I can not wait for Aimee and Mike’s Wedding! I am thrilled to be apart of it!
Enjoy a taste of our session, and if you have any creative or unique ideas for your engagement session, I can’t wait to hear them! Email me: Info@KariePetersonPhotography and tell me all about it!

It’s so hard to plan when the weather is going to leave you with perfect picturesque mornings. It’s not like Mother nature send us reminder email or text messages. So this bride-to-be and I had a plan to out smart mother nature. We decided that if the weather report said that it was going to snow over night and be clear in the morning, than no matter what we were going to shoot for an early morning photo shoot. Thankfully God was on our side and we pulled it off even better than I had expected. The conditions were perfect, other than the fact that it was FREEZING! The Hot coco warmed everyone up though! Such a beautiful scene for an amazing couple! I am so looking forward to your wedding in October! I hope the fall colors are just as spectacular as the winter whites. Hair and Makeup artistry was provided by Sara Keo.
