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 […]

Michelle and Peter | Woodwinds

Peter proposed to Michelle on a cold winter’s day after she triumphantly crossed the finish line of the Savin Rock Half Marathon. She, exhausted and in shock, gathered up the energy and nodded her head yes. A little over a year later, they tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony at WoodWinds in Branford, CT. The day was perfect, the little details were lovely and we had an amazing time with this fun-loving couple! Congratulations, Michelle and Peter!!

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!

Rachel and Mike | St Clements Castle

Rachel and Mike were married at one of our favorite venues in the whole state, Saint Clements Castle in Portland, CT! For this wedding, Kiva and crew not only photographed the event, but did some filming to create a Fusion Video. For those of you who don’t know what that is, a Fusion Video is a short movie of the day that combines photographs from the event, interviews with the couple/friends and video snippets from the wedding day all set to music of the bride or groom’s choice. This is an inexpensive and creative way to save your memories without spending a fortune on a videographer and rids the clutter of too many cameras at the event! Check out our YouTube Channel to see some of the videos we’ve done in the past. Stay tuned, Rachel and Mike’s video will be up in the next month or so. We started the day with Mike at his brother’s Barber Shop – can you think of a better location to relax with your groomsmen before the biggest day of your life? Shortly after, we headed to the hotel where Rachel was getting ready and when we finally saw her, we were all […]
