Ever After Bridal Photoshoot | Metropolitan Building, NYC

  If you’ve been following our work this past year, you’d know that we have had the honor of working with the always amazing Jen from Ever After Bridal before and when she messaged us to ask if we wanted to be the photographers to bring her next styled shoot to life, we didn’t hesitate to jump at the opportunity! And boy, our new photoshoot was the complete opposite of the previous one! The last time we worked together, the Mayflower Grace contributed a soft, pure white background to the elegant and lovely nature of the wedding gowns. The photoshoot this past November at the famous Metropolitan Building in NYC, we were going for a staunch juxtaposition of grime and beauty which really made our lovely brides pop. The crudeness and mismatched nature of the 3rd floor provided the perfect location to show off the timeless elegance of these beautiful Veluz Reyes dresses!   This shoot was every photographer’s dream! We had a beautiful venue, a talented cake artist, an incredible florist and to top it all off, Jen invited the beautiful Kristen Taekman from the Real House Wives of New York City to model for us! She also wanted […]

Heather and Will | Waterbury Country Club

We’ve had the pleasure to work with this family many times over the years and their weddings are always a blast – Heather and Will’s was no exception! We had some fun on the family farm, got our bridal party photos photobombed by Heather’s horse and ended the night with an awesome party. Couldn’t have asked for a better day! Congratulations, Heather and Will!

Denise and Charles | The Aqua Turf

Denise and Chuck are the perfect example of a pair that are absolutely made for each other. From their weekly softball games, getting dirty participating in mud runs to relaxing on the couch and binge watching Netflix, these two do everything together and are always in search of an adventure. (Check out their awesome baseball themed engagement shoot) Being a very family-centered couple, Denise tells us that “our family is first, second, and third in our lives, and we enjoy every moment of it. Its a great feeling to know that as of 9/25/15 that our families just got a lot bigger!” Denise and Chuck were married in a lovely church ceremony followed by a rockin’ reception at The Aqua Turf in Plantsville, CT. It was a beautiful day with a wonderful couple we wont soon forget! Congratulations, Denise and Charles!

Jessica and Marcus | Popponessett Inn – Cape Cod

Jessica and Marcus were married in the lovely coastal town of Mashpee in southern Cape Cod Massachusetts. It was the perfect beach wedding which is no surprise because the bride is a wedding planner by trade! Jessica’s infectious laughter and enthusiasm for life really set the tone for the day and emanated through every one the couple’s friends and family. You can tell by the look in their eyes that Jessica and Marcus are deeply and truly in love and we were honored to be a part of their special day. The couple were engaged over some delicious NoRA cupcakes, so it makes sense that the Middletown, CT company catered the deserts at their wedding! Yum! Congratulations, Jessica and Marcus! Here’s to many years (and many cupcakes) together!

Melinda and Charles | Saint Clements Castle – Port Hampton Marina Club

Melinda and Charles are such a fun couple and we had so much fun getting to know their friends and family! As we’ve said in the past, we love working at Saint Clements Castle but this was our first time shooting at their new venue on site, The Port-Hampton Marina Club. This location photographs really well, has some great lighting inside and out and with it’s close proximity to the Connecticut River, those iconic CT waterfront photos are only a few paces away. Congratulations Melinda and Chuck, here’s to many years of happily married bliss! Look at those beautiful bouquets – Melinda designed and put them together herself!

Elena and Bill | Mystic Boat Shed

Elena and Bill had a lovely, nautical wedding at the Mystic Boat Shed run by Coastal Gourmet Catering. This couple was super fun and the event went off without a hitch. While we love every shot from this wedding, our favorite part is definitely the bridal party photos where we got creative with some bouquet tossing, the boats in the harbor and this great group of ladies and gentlemen that came to celebrate the love of this awesome couple! Congrats Elena and Bill!

Megan and Marc | Anthony’s Ocean View

Megan and Marc were married in our home base city of New Haven, CT, having their ceremony in Dwight Hall At Yale and their reception at Anthony’s Ocean View Catering. It’s always fun to run around and shoot in all the historic locations around Yale University’s campus! Anthony’s waterfront location boasts some impressive ocean views complete with palm trees on site so it’s really hard to believe that we didn’t hop a plane mid-day and set out on a tropical adventure for the second half of their wedding day. These locations are only a few miles away! Congratulations Megan and Marc – here’s to many years of happily married bliss!

Kelly and Phillip | Saybrook Point Inn and Spa

Saybrook Point Inn and Spa will always be one of our favorite venues and the PERFECT location for that nautical-themed wedding. There’s plenty of photo opportunities on site with it’s close proximity to local beaches, access to Saybrook’s own personal dock and even a lighthouse which the bride (and bridesmaids) can use to get ready and glam up for the wedding. It was the perfect summer day and one these two wont forget for the rest of their lives. Kelly and Phillip met in September of 2012 at (you guessed it) the beach! These two teachers spend the majority of their summers off lounging in the sand and enjoying the sun of the gold coast, dreading that first week in September where flip flops and bathing suits are traded in for dress shoes and glitter-covered cardigans. All the little beach-themed details perfectly accented their love of the sea from the tables to the favors and even the cake had a slight touch of the seacoast! These two will have plenty of great stories to tell their students when asked how they spent their summer vacation! Congratulations, Kelly and Phillip! Here’s to a lifetime of summers lounging hand-in-hand in your beach […]

Renee and Gerson | Aqua Turf Club

This wedding WAS A BLAST! From the moment we walked in the door, these two welcomed us as part of their family. Renee’s beaming smile never left her face all day and, paired with her ruby lipstick, perfectly matched the vivid red and white colors of the wedding. These two are absolutely perfect for each other! They share the same values and aspirations, have a shared sense of humor, enjoy eachother’s company and are the perfect, well-oiled team. After over 7 years of being a pair, the two tied the knot at Aqua Turf Club in Plainsville, CT. The windmill on the grounds made the perfect background for bridal party and first look photos and the groomsmen got to have some fun with Luchador masks for the perfect wedding keepsake. We couldn’t be happier about how these photos turned out! Congratulations, Renee and Gerson! We’re so glad we got to be a part of your special day! On to the party!

Collette and Kevin | Newagen Seaside Inn

We got the opportunity to travel up to Southport, Maine to photograph Collette and Kevin’s elegant seaside wedding at Newagen Seaside Inn on the most beautiful summer day. This couple met in the state so lovingly called “Vacation land” and they couldn’t think of a better place to tie the knot! We got a chance to really explore the grounds and take advantage of the woodsy atmosphere of The Pine Tree State for their bride and groom shots. For the reception, every little detail was elegantly designed from the lovely glass table settings to the cute little succulents used for the seating tags and favors. It was a great weekend and nice to get away from the city! Congrats, Collette and Kevin! On to the details:
