Anniversary shoot in The Hamptons

Last week Jared and I took a much needed vacation to The Hamptons (sounds so fancy). We stayed in a small town called Hampton Bays with our dear friends Andrew and Tiffany. Its no surprise that when on vacation with a photographer there would have to be a photoshoot right! Well, these two celebrated their anniversary this week so we did an anniversary shoot! The sunset was amazing and the light was unbelievable. Congratulations on 4 years you two! Check out some of my favorites from the shoot!

Family Session: Clinton, CT

Last summer I met up with an amazing family and dear friends of ours from Connecticut for a family session. We couldn’t have asked for more perfect weather! It was so great to have a few generations together for this session. What a great way to celebrate family by having a photo shoot!

Here are a few of my favorites from the session.

Batel and Norm’s Wedding Saint Clements Castle, Portland, CT

Batel and Norm are one awesome couple. They are some of the nicest, most caring people that I know! They are both becoming doctors, what lucky patients they will have!

We had a great time photographing their wedding at Saint Clements Castle. I love the ceremony location at Saint Clements as you overlook the Connecticut River. Its just beautiful! Here are my favorites from the day!

Congratulations to you both! We had an amazing time at your wedding! xoxo

Antonia and Jimmy’s Wedding, Astoria, NY

You might remember this weekend, October 28th. This was the weekend that everyone was glued to their TV’s listening to any piece of news about Hurricane Sandy. While everyone was at home preparing for the storm we were shooting a wedding! It was so much fun to get our minds off the approaching storm and do something fun and meaningful. It was very exciting as we thought about maybe getting stuck somewhere and what a story THAT would be!

We started out with some getting ready shots in Norwalk, CT at Antonia’s parents house.

Then we headed into the city to a super cute Greek church in Astoria, NY. It was an amazing experience. The entire ceremony was in Greek in a very small church with only candle light. It was so special.

We headed down to the water to take some portraits. It just felt like a storm was coming in the air.

I love these of the NYC skyline in the background.

Boy did this family know how to PARTY!!! It was non stop dancing the entire night!Antonia and Jimmy, congratulations to you both! We had an amazing time waiting out Sandy with you guys!



Karina and Tim’s Avon, CT fall wedding

I love fall weddings. They are just the best for great warm weather and crisp nights and Karina and Tim had the best day. We headed over to the Avon Old Farms Hotel for some getting ready before the ceremony and reception at Belle Terrace in Avon. What a fun wedding with lots of sweet little details that Karina did. I loved the colors and the vintage feel to their day. Hair and makeup by the extremely talented ladies at Dana Bartone and Co! Here are some of my favorites!

Karina and Tim, thank you so much for having us at your wedding! We wish you all the best as you journey through life together!
