Winter. December-March: I am currently taking bookings for Winter Sessions at Geer’s Family Tree Farm. I love photographing there because the lighting is so beautiful. There are also a variety of scenes to work with including Lovely Lanterns, Blankets and Trees, and Rustic Barns. As always I am happy to come to your home and do a lifestyle session as well.
Spring & Summer. May-September: Starting in May I will begin photographing Garden Glamour Sessions at Harkness Park in Waterford, CT. My favorite section of Harkness Park are the beautiful gardens. There are a variety of flowers, stone walls, vintage gates, green vines, and columns. If you book your session an hour before sunset we can head down to the beach as well.
Fall. October. In October I shoot at the Saw Mill in Ledyard, CT. It is a rustic location with a pond and beautiful trees which makes for perfect fall portraits.
I can’t wait to capture and create gorgeous portraits for your family, making history as you make it!
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!
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.

I photographed this stunningly beautiful wedding in the Massachusetts’ Seacoast Town of Scituate for Josi Photo. I love working with other photographers and gaining their artistic insight and learning from their photographic knowledge and experience. It’s always so much fun to talk shop and take an interest in others in the same field as you. As artists and professionals we all have something different to bring to the table and I love seeing another professional’s take on photography. This particular photographer has a special gift for lighting up the night with her evening wedding portraits. Check out her website for a peak at her work.
This particular wedding started off with the ceremony set outdoors in a beautiful gazebo. Wedding portraits were taken in the exquisite gardens and then we headed indoors for an outdoor themed reception with a birch tree wedding cake and nautical themed decor. Can you tell how much I loved all the floral details. I had fun with the dark romantic mood of the first dance and the documentary feel of these black & whites. We ended the evening with a fun yet tasteful cake cutting ceremony. It’s always such a delightful feeling to have captured the first moments and memories of a loving couples dream day.
This gorgeous evening wedding took place in an outdoor country setting with a beautiful rustic theme. Earlier in the day we had so much fun capturing the First Look at beautiful Harkness Park mansion and barn here in Connecticut. The ceremony was in a sweet little historical church and I love the documentary effect these black and white church photos created for a perfect wedding gallery. We were able to capture some great sunset portraits after the ceremony at this little forest-side gazebo next door. The reception had a small barn tastefully decorated with twinkle lights and antique accents for it’s backdrop. Guests enjoyed toasting s’mores over the cozy country bonfire. To top off the charming country character of this evening, family and friends danced in the heart of the lovingly manicured flower gardens overlooking the glistening pond. This wedding was particularly sentimental because these Highschool Sweethearts were off on an adventure as the groom is enrolled in the Army as a Lieutenant and the bride is off to start her career as a Veterinarian Technician. After the wedding they will travel to Virginia and then Alabama, temporarily leaving their New England roots behind. Knowing that I am responsible for creating one of a kind artwork of this adorable couple for family and friends to cherish forever fills my heart with joy.
Set in the Downtown New London Waterfront of Connecticut this wedding was designed with a contemporary beach theme in mind. The turquoise and black lanterns mixed with orange and white flowers set the perfect romantic evening around this fun-loving couple’s special night. However, at the end of the day this wedding was all about FUN! They were more excited about their guests having fun, then their formal portraits. They managed to make time for romantic piano portraits and urban styled outdoor photos before everyone danced the night away. They also helped me embrace an appreciation for the true art of documentary photography. I loved catering these wedding photos to the special couple, the family, their friends, and all of their personalities combined. Photographing according to the energy of the crowd personalized the wedding gallery for this bride and groom. I was privileged to witness such an energizing evening with loving family and friends supporting and honoring these newlyweds.
I felt so honored when this bride told me she saw my website and just knew she wanted me as her photographer!! I knew immediately I had to photograph her wedding! It was such a blessing to be a part of their quaint romantic garden wedding with the couple’s close family and friends. You would never know it was pouring rain right up until the bride walked down the garden isle. The rain let up, they had a beautiful ceremony, and they loved their portraits!
This couple knows the true meaning of lasting love and that family is forever.
I loved photographing this classic New England wedding. I was especially happy to find the perfect Enchanted Forest location for their formal portraits. It’s not just the photographer that creates the entire photograph. The people on the other side of the lens, their relationship, their love for each other, their inner glow, their heart and sole is what photographers can only dream of capturing. When you photograph people that truly care about each other and have a sincere connection the photographs take a life of their own.
