Bridal Prep: Private Residence, Farmington, CT
Ceremony: First Church of Christ Congregational, Farmington, CT
Formal Photos: Eagle Landing State Park, Haddam, CT
Reception: Riverhouse, Haddam, CT

Jake and I really enjoyed being a part of Ali and Jason’s wedding day. They are a fun, easy going couple who exuded happiness throughout the day. They had a gorgeous wedding that began in Farmington, CT. The church on Main Street is a historic, quaint, and an idyllic CT location to tie the knot. From there we headed down to Haddam for photos and the reception. A little way down the road from the Riverhouse is Eagle Landing. It is a great spot to capture photos overlooking the CT river and the Goodspeed Opera House. Ali and Jason were willing participants as we moved them and their bridal party around the park.
The reception was an awesome time. Ali and Jason have moved down south, so it was a nice reunion with friends and family. Ali and Jason attended college together and met through soccer. There were plenty of mutual friends, and we heard a couple great stories from their early days as a couple. The personal touches to the wedding were fantastic as well. We loved the bottles of wine for guests to sign and Ali and Jason to enjoy over the next years and decades to come. The cigar rolling table and sparklers were a nice addition to the summer evening on the deck. And the band was great. We had an awesome time being a part of this special day. Ali and Jason, thank you for choosing us to capture your wedding day. Enjoy!

Bridal Prep: Private Residence
Formal Photos: Capitol Building, Albany, NY
Ceremony/Reception: Crystal Cove, Averill Park, NY

Being a part of Mike and Maribeth’s wedding was a fun and special day for us. Jake grew up in the same town as Mike, so there were plenty of familiar faces at the wedding. It is always nice to have a personal connection to the wedding. Although we had yet to meet the girl Mike had been telling us about, the moment we met Maribeth, it felt as if we had known her forever. She is warm, sweet, and a ton of fun. She and her family opened the doors to the house and treated us as if we had been there a hundred times before.
After Maribeth was in her dress and ready to go, we headed over to the Capitol Building in Albany for Mike and Maribeth’s first look. We had to do a a quick change of plans from the park to the Capitol thanks to a road race. However I think the change worked out amazing. The old building is gorgeous and was an incredible spot for photos. There were some many places amongst the architecture to take photos that it was hard to leave. However, we need to get these two married!
The ceremony and reception were at Crystal Cove. Mike told us that it would be like going to camp for the reception since they wanted something laid back and fun vibe. The venue looked beautiful, the day was exactly what they had hoped for. Mike and Maribeth were married outside overlooking the lake. Then guests were sent up the hill inside the open air structure for dinner and dancing. It was an beautiful night in upstate NY for a wedding, and everyone had a fantastic time. Mike and Maribeth, thanks for including us in your day.

Bridal Prep: Lis-A-Lis Salon, Guilford, CT
Ceremony & Reception: The Woodwinds, Branford, CT

Jessica and Rockwell were a sweet, fun couple, who were so easy to photograph. We met Jess at the salon. She sat patiently through her makeup as we snapped away. From the start she let us know that she was up for anything, excited for the day, and completely relaxed about everything. Jake was quickly inspired by the salon and the surroundings, and Jess was willing to take a little walk about. I absolutely love some of her photos in Guilford.

Sarah and Kyle had a beautiful day and a gorgeous wedding. They both grew up in Bolton and brought that home town charm to their wedding. They introduced Jake and me to an amazing location for photos. Sarah and Kyle opted for a first look on local farm land. Formerly known as Rose Farm, Heritage Farm, now a part of Bolton Land Trust, is a historical treasure perfect for an afternoon stroll or wedding photos! We can’t wait to show you more of this wedding, but in the meantime enjoy your preview.

Engagement Shoot & Family Photos
Location: At Home & Southford Falls

Sandra and Jason are not only joining their lives together in marriage, but they are joining their families together. They each have two children and together a son. It is a true blending of families, and we could not be more excited or happy for this couple. The are warm and welcoming duo. From the moment we met them, we felt like we had known them forever. And that feeling was reinforced when we met up with them for photos last week. Sandra’s daughters and their son were present for a few family photos at the house. Like any children, they wanted to ham it up for the camera. After some group photos, we stole mom and dad for a few photos of their own. We headed over to Southford Falls with Sandra and Jason for some beautiful photos to commemorate this joyous time in their lives. We can’t wait for the wedding in just a couple weeks!
