Luke & Alanna – Gillette Castle State Park, East Haddam, CT

Luke and Alanna made the trip from their home in Massachusetts to do their engagement session at Gillette Castle State Park. It was a beautiful afternoon and a little foliage still existed in the woods around the castle. They are an absolute joy to be with. I can’t say enough about how fun and caring they are. Luke was always kissing Alanna and they just naturally snuggled in while posing for pictures. They both have a great sense of humor. I believe in the saying “the couple who laughs together stays together” and I know they have many, many years of laughter and love ahead! I can’t wait to document their wedding next year at The Barns at Wesleyan Hills!

Rob & Jodie – Riverside Yacht Club, Riverside, CT

Jodie and Robby had a beautiful wedding day. Their ceremony was held at Christ Church Greenwich and reception at Riverside Yacht Club. Nothing could stop the day from being beautiful, not even a little rain. I love how Robby & Jodie are so laid back that the rain didn’t ruin their day. They were so happy to be married and enjoy having all their friends and family around them that they didn’t even care. The two totally compliment each other and it was fun to hear the great stories that were told during the reception about their time dating. There were so many laughs had by all. The dance floor was full all night and the bride and groom danced until the last song was played. It was truly an honor to document this special couple!


Jodie wore her sister’s wedding dress and just had it altered to change the look a bit. It was breathtaking on her!

15 Year Vow Renewal – Hartford, CT

I was honored to have the opportunity to document Nick and Beatrice’s vow renewal in July. I loved hearing about their 15 year journey and meeting their boys. We have so much in common being at the same point in life – achieving 15 years of marriage and having kids the same age. I thought it was just wonderful that they celebrated how far they’ve come as a couple and as a family. Beatrice planned the whole party herself. Every detail was beautiful!

Kyle & Kelsey – Wickham Park Manchester, CT

Kelsey is passionate, caring, fun loving and has a very big heart. I’ve known her for quite a few years now and she holds a special with me. You may remember back some time ago when Kelsey was assisting me on family shoots while she was studying photography at Paier School of Art. I was honored when she asked me to document her wedding with Kyle. I’ve gotten to know Kyle while they were dating and from some photo sessions I’ve had with them. He is the perfect other half to Kelsey. They are friends first. They respect each other. They love each others family. They don’t take themselves too seriously – which I love :) Their wedding was filled with some happy tears, some rain, and a lot of laughs. It was my privilege to be there through it all. The day couldn’t have been more perfect. All their close family and friends at were at the ceremony in Wickham Park and then back to Kelsey’s brother’s house for a beautiful tented reception in Middletown. I wish you guys all the best in married life. I know you two will have many, many happy years together!

Jordan & Olivia – Danfords Hotel & Marina, Port Jefferson, NY

They say April showers bring May flowers, but not on Olivia & Jordan’s wedding day! We totally lucked out with the weather that late April day. They were married at Dandfords Hotel & Marina in Port Jefferson, NY. The air was a little chilly but the sun was shining out over the Long Island Sound and it was just perfect. I would highly recommend taking an afternoon and jumping on the ferry in Bridgeport and riding it over to Port Jefferson. It drops you off right on the doorstep of Danfords. They have delicious food at their restaurant, Wave, and outdoor seating facing the water.
Olivia & Jordan started the day with their outdoor ceremony, complete with their beloved dog and ring bearer, Pharoah. He stole the show :) They both wrote their own vows which were so heartfelt I was shooting through tears! We were able to capture some photos on the dock at Danfords and then everyone headed inside for dinner and dancing. The band Kick had the dance floor full all night long! It truly was a fantastic day and I don’t think Jordan & Olivia stopped smiling. They compliment each other so well. Missy & I thank you for allowing us to document your day!

Pittsfield, MA Maternity Session – Kelly & Brett

Before this winter storm came through, I was VERY lucky to be doing an outdoor session in January. It doesn’t happen very often – maybe never! And I was VERY lucky to be doing the session with this beautiful woman! If you can believe it, this is baby #4 for Kelly. I have done her maternity and 1st year pics with all 3 of her kids and now will do the same for baby #4. When I arrived at her house chaos was erupting. Kids were playing hide and seek on me and the dog was running off with one my shoes. And despite all this, she was ready to go and looked amazing! Literally glowing. We did some pics inside with the kiddos and then just Kelly, Brett & I headed to the nature trail area down the road. I am honored that they call me back time and time again to capture their family with each growing step. I am so lucky to have such wonderful clients who value photography and make it a priority for themselves and their children.

Tips for Writing Your Own Vows

I came across this great article featured on Style Me Pretty the other day. Writing your own vows can be a tough task because you want to say the perfect thing. I mean, it’s your wedding day and you’re professing your love and intentions to your soon to be husband or wife and all your family and friends. No pressure! I thought this article gave some great advice. I’ve photographed plenty of weddings were couples have written their own meaningful vows. It’s so special and unique. If you’re considering this I highly suggest this article!

Heritage Hotel Wedding Southbury, CT – Jay & Kate

As I mentioned last week I’m going to be doing weekly posts to share some of the fantastic weddings and sessions I’ve had over the past year. And this wedding was nothing short of fantastic! Kate and Jay had a gorgeous spring wedding at the beautiful Heritage Hotel in Southbury, CT. I just adored their first look. Kate looked absolutely stunning and when Jay got a glimpse of her, it brought tears to his eyes!
It was my first time shooting at the Heritage and I was very impressed by the grounds and photo ops we found. The Heritage does a beautiful job curating the area they have set up for outdoor ceremonies. It made a great backdrop for the photos. Thank you Melissa Ball Photography for 2nd shooting this wedding and to Kate & Jay for allowing us to document their day!

Kate spent time collecting vintage brooches for all the bouquets. Each bridesmaid had a pin of their initial on the burlap of their flowers. I thought it was a special touch!

Middletown Engagement Session – Olivia & Jordan

Happy New Year everyone! It’s the perfect time for fresh starts, resolutions and setting goals for the new year. I have been busy setting up my business plan for the year and looking ahead at the wonderful couples I’m working with in 2016. I can’t wait to get the wedding season started! My first wedding is with Olivia and Jordan. They’re getting married at the beautiful Danfords Hotel & Marina in Port Jefferson, NY. I thought I would share some of their engagement photos that I took at the Barns at Wesleyan Hills in Middletown, CT. Funny story, the first time I met with them at their consultation we found out quickly that we all live in the same neighborhood and bring our dogs to the same dog parks, etc. (small world!) So the Barns seemed like a perfect spot since it’s in our hometown. Speaking of dogs, their little guy stole the show :) I can’t wait for their spring wedding!
P.S. My first resolution this year is to blog on a weekly basis. Yes, yes… I know. I’m setting tall expectations. But I figure if I actually tell you all that I’m doing this then someone is holding me accountable, right? I have a catalog of photos of my fantastic clients that I NEED and WANT to share. This is not like my diet resolution I make every year that ends by February 1st. I promise.

This is one of the photos they chose to put on their save the dates cards. I love it!
