NIc’cole + YAssine=NIYA!!

Niya’s Newborn Photos

It hasn’t been very long since these Nic’ole and Yassine appeared on our blog. Athough you won’t see the in these photos, you may remember them from their maternity photos just a couple months ago. While these two were actually present for the photos, they were behind the scenes. As new parents will attest, it isn’t fun to be sleep deprived and feel camera ready. Instead the photos were all about Niya. They welcomed their daughter on October 24th, and she is adorable. I love her name and origins behind it. Since she is a product of NIc’cole and YAssine, so is her name. We had the pleasure of spending some time with everyone at their house. Niya wasn’t always a fan of the camera, but she did a great job! Check out some of her adorable photos below.

Bethany & Chris–Cheers To Your Marriage, Beers All Around!

The Lace Factory

Bethany and Chris planned a fantastic wedding. The time of year perfect for the foliage and the weather cooperated for their outdoor ceremony. We were super excited to check out the venue. Bethany had told us awesome things about the Lace Factory, and we had yet to see it. We were not disappointed. It is a cool old space that is the brainchild of the owners who live on the premises. It has a cozy, personal feel since they are there along the way to make any couple’s day perfect.
Bethany and Chris did a great job enhancing the decor. They had fun personal items added throughout that were a great compliment to the day. Since the family name is Beers, we especially loved the pint glasses as seating cards. Guests and family were treated to a fantastic evening of fun and great food from Cloud Nine Catering.
For their ceremony, Bethany and Chris chose an outdoor ceremony on the Academy at Mount Saint John. They exchanged vows overlooking the rolling hills on the front lawn of the school. It is here where we took all their formal photos. They used a trolley to shuttle guests from the venue up the hill to the school, so Jake jumped on board to get a few photos with Bethany and Chris. The Lace factory is Deep River, which is a quaint and interesting area. There were endless photo options. We were able to get a great variety of photos with old stone work, a water background, and the steam train all in one place. The conductor was even nice enough to add a little more steam for the photo!
Bethany and Chris congratulations again. Thank you for introducing us to the venue and being so much fun to work with. We had a great time at the wedding. Enjoy!

Vernon, CT

Jake and I really enjoyed photographing Katie and Kent’s wedding. It was a different kind of day for us. It reminded us a bit of how weddings were when our parents were married. Katie and Kent asked us to come just for the ceremony and to capture some photos of family and friends. Katie arrived at the church and stayed behind closed door until the ceremony began. Kent saw her for the first time down the aisle. After they were officially married, they greeted guests and posed for photos. The church was beautiful and bright and the grounds were impeccable. It was the perfect place for their photos. Katie and Kent, we really enjoyed meeting both of you and learning a little bit about your history together. We hope you like the photos.

Delamar Hotel, Southport, CT
Maritime Aquarium, Norwalk, CT

Jake and I captured an amazing wedding this past Saturday at the Aquarium in Norwalk. The event had such a cool vibe and interesting details. Guests ate dinner in a room with seals and shared cocktails and hors d’oeuvres next to the shark tank! So, you definitely need to check back for the full blog. In the meantime, here are a few photos of this stunning couple. Emily and Chinh opted for a first look since, as we know, the sun sets quite early in November. We took these two to a private area of the Delamar Hotel for a few photos on their own. Emily looked amazing! It was nice for them to have a moment to take each other in and share a conversation before the excitement of the day kicked off. Enjoy the preview.

Jake and I had not met this couple until the day of the wedding. It didn’t take us long after meeting them to absolutely love them! They are sweet, easy-going, warm hearted people. We were so honored to have been a part of their first of two weddings. They had a beautiful afternoon to get married on the lawn of the yacht club.
