Alessandra–Newborn Photos At Home

Alessandra
Her First Photo Session!
At Home In Her Nursery

Here are more adorable photos to this new little life. We had a great time documenting Alessandra in her adorable room. She was an amazing subject. She was well behaved and happy behind the camera. We could already see how sweet this little girl is going to be. Hopefully she will be a great friend to our daughter since the girls are just a few days apart. We wish this family all the best. We can’t wait to see Alessandra as she continues to grow. It is incredible how quickly babies change. We were honored to have captured this special moment in time.

Lake Of Isles

Sarah and Matt were married during the height of our foliage season. The October colors were beautiful for this wedding. The attire for everyone looked fantastic as well as Sarah’s details. It was a perfect compliment to all that mother nature added to the day. The afternoon was perfect for a fall wedding.
Lake of Isles is a great venue for people to come and celebrate. It is directly across from Foxwoods Casino and hotels. The hotel on the property is great. We had fun with both the men and ladies before the ceremony. After a few getting ready photos, we all headed over to New London to get these two hitched. St. Mary Star of the Sea is a beautiful and large church. The Reverend always has a great service, and Sarah and Matt’s wedding was no exception.
After the ceremony, we headed to a small little park on the way to the venue. It was a cute little spot along the way for photos. It was a perfect place to take advantage of some of the foliage before heading to the reception on the golf course.
It has been said that rain on your wedding day is good luck. I think this is exactly what we were all saying when we got stuck in the pouring rain. We headed out in golf carts with the newlyweds for some photos. The clouds rolled in and the rain came down hard. However these two were troopers. The rain went as quickly as it came and we were able to stay out on the course for some gorgeous photos. This was a day that had it all. It was full of fun, laughter, tears of joy, surprises, and excitement. The party was a perfect end to a great day. Sarah and Matt, we thank you for including us.

Saint Clements Castle

Fall is beautiful, brief, and a gorgeous time of year for a wedding in Connecticut. Laura and Steven chose a perfect date because they had the day that all couples dream of when planning an autumn wedding. The weather was warm, sunny, and full of vibrant color.
Family and guests joined Steven and Laura at Saint Clements Castle for both the ceremony and reception. The grounds were green and colorful amongst the trees with changing leaves. The ceremony overlooked the river and looked amazing. Both inside and out the castle was beautifully decorated with sweet details and beautiful floral arrangements. The flowers and attire were the perfect compliment to the day. Not only did the details look amazing, but so did Laura and Steven. Neither Laura nor Steven realize just how photogenic each of them is. They both looked great and were such a pleasure to photograph. Laura and Steven exuded happiness and a fun-loving spirit throughout the day. It was a perfect wedding day. And we enjoyed out time with their family and friends. Laura and Steven, thank you for including us in your wedding day. Enjoy!
