Elegant Garden Wedding

How Elegant is this Gorgeous Garden Wedding?

This Sweet Couple followed their dream and actually got married in Big Sur, CA.

When they got back to their Hometown in the Cozy New England Corner of the world they had a wedding reception for their family and friends to celebrate their marriage.  And what a celebration it was.  Their family threw them a Beautiful Backyard BBQ with gardens, games, speeches, dancing, dinner, and of course cake! Anyone can tell how loving and supportive their family and friends are of their vows to love each other and start a new life together.

I felt privileged to be a part of their Special Day and wish them all the happiness they deserve in their future to come.

I just had to share this action shot I captured of the Groom’s nephew playing wiffle ball in the gardens.  Too Cool!

Twilight Portraits

Can you tell the last half of the wedding portraits were taken after Sunset and into Dusk? Twilight Portraits are a fun genre of wedding and portrait photography.  Typically great portraits are taken during the Golden Hour which is an hour before sunset.  Then comes Sunset, Twilight, Dusk, and Night.  After the sunsets there is still enough light during Twilight to capture really cool photos.  Then comes Dusk and then Night where if you have a pretty good flash system you can still get great portraits even in the dark believe it or not.  Also the Moon is still letting off a good amount of light which is why everyone loves taking photos of the moon.

Check out some more of my Twilight, Dusk, and Night Portraits below.

Stunning Senior Garden & Beach Session

We had so much fun on the beach and in the gardens for this gorgeous girl’s Senior Session.  My favorite part was that we snuck in a Mini Mother/Daughter Session.  Since I have been friends with this beautiful mom since kindergarten, these portraits were near and dear to my heart and I felt so blessed to provide both lovely ladies with a lifetime of memories to cherish.

Fall Senior Portrait Session

This gorgeous high school senior photo session was taken during the class foliage months in New England.  Believe it or not this located at an exclusive golf course here in Connecticut. When this young lady shared her Autumn Artistic Vision with me I knew it had to be here when I saw these naturally vivid colors and romantic dreamy settings.

Rustic Fall Senior Portrait Session

How great is this Rustic High School Senior Session?!  Nestled in a fabulous New England Tree Farm, this setting was perfect for what this Mom and Daugther had in mind.  With barns, lanterns, pine trees, and blankets, creating the scene for cozy sweaters and adding a few frames with Mom and Brother, it made for the perfect portrait day!

My Family Session

Weren’t these guys great to humor me for our yearly family photo session??!!  Of course it wouldn’t be our family photo shoot without my youngest giving me rabbit ears!  Even after I bribed him to come and pretend to be happy.  Fifteen years old, YES he has to pretend. LOL.  I was still super grateful to all three of them for these photos.   It’s so important to me that I have these photos.  I LOVE Photos.  Obviously…  For me its a documentation of the past, present, and future of our family.  Have you ever looked at an old photo album of yourself with your parents or even your grandparents.  Aren’t you so grateful for those photos and memories.  And while your looking at old memories your making new memories, right?  Those are such precious moments in time and you will always remember them.  Its so important to document these years because someday you are going to be the parent or grandparent that your children and grandchildren are looking through old photos with.  Yes I think about that.  That’s how special those memories have been for me with my parents and grandparents and even with my aunts and uncles.  When your laughing and having fun in real time, one day you will be laughing and having fun while remembering about laughing and having fun.  Sounds crazy I know but I don’t want to miss a single second of it.  I hope you don’t either.  Get your family together.  Get those portraits taken.  Get those albums made.  You will be so grateful for it all one day.

Photography is the only real time machine.  A photograph is your own personal journey into the past.  A photo album is your own Story, Science Fiction Novel, or Comic Book.  A photograph is evidence that time existed, life was lived, places were traveled, people were met, laughs were had, and adventures were experienced.  Karrie Knowles

Dancing Princess

This little dancing beauty was full of fun and sass and it was a blast to photograph her dance portraits.  As an on location portrait photographer it was so much fun for me to change things up a bit and take dance her portraits in a park as opposed to in the studio with a backdrop.  A fun location would also be an urban setting.  With Dance Season coming upon us I’d love to do more of these on location dance portraits.
