New Canaan Engagement | Sebastian & Lauren

Published in Engagements
]Sebastian and Lauren usually spend New Year's Eve together with her family - and last year was no different. They went to the beautiful Robert Sherman Inn for dinner, champagne and celebrating the end of a year and a beginning of the next. It was during this dinner that Sebastian said he was going to step outside to call his parents and wish them a happy New Years. Lauren agreed they should go call them before it got too late, so she followed Sebastian outside onto the Inn's outdoor patio. It was a beautiful night out and the patio was decorated with strings of twinkling white lights. Sebastian took out his phone and pretended to call his parents and said they weren't answering. Thinking nothing of it and still having no idea what was about to happen, Lauren just smiled as Sebastian began to tell her how much he loved her and was excited for the next chapter in their relationship. And with that Sebastian proposed to Lauren, asking her if she would marry him! Lauren was so shocked and burst into tears while repeating over and over "Are you serious?! Are you serious!?" Lauren's sister who was watching from afar and photographing the beautiful moment finally called out "say yes!" and a surprised and completely happy Lauren did just that. The newly engaged couple were on cloud nine as they walked back into the Inn and shared the exciting news with their family. Now she understood why Sebastian had been acting a little nervous and why her mom had convinced her to get her nails done and get a new dress for the dinner! They gave "ringing" in the new year a whole new meaning! :)  
 
For their engagement session we went back to the town they got engaged in and had so much fun walking around one of the beautiful local parks. Can't wait for these two to tie the knot! Here are a few of my favorites from their session!

Aria Wedding | Tiffany & Jeremy

Published in Weddings
There are amazing moments on a wedding day that despite any noise or surroundings that do exist, everything fades into the background. There is a beautiful silence that fills every corner of a moment and the surrounding walls and windows seem to dissolve into the beauty of what is taking place. These moments are ones that can't quite be described, but once you have witnessed them you realize how lucky you were to have done so. This quiet, surroundings-giving-way to the happy tears and time standing still happened during Tiffany and Jeremy's wedding when they saw one another for the first time during the First Look. It was a private intimate moment when the realization that they were about to marry their soul mate overflowed with joyful tears, I love yous, and a sweet embrace. And after what could have been a few minutes or an hour, sound began to seep back into the moment and the rain lightly tapping on the windows could be heard. You could hear the laughter of the bridal party in the distance and just like that time began again.  
 
Tiffany and Jeremy held hands in front of their loved ones gathered and spoke of their love and devotion to one another in a beautiful outdoor ceremony. The clouds and mist rolled in creating the literal expression that the happy couple was feeling - on cloud nine. The low clouds made it seem like they were being wed in the sky surrounded by gorgeous views and soft beautiful clouds. It was breathtaking! 
 
Tiffany & Jeremy - Thank you for allowing us to document the amazing moments of your wedding day and the beautiful love that you two have!

Waveny Park Engagement | Kim & Andrew

Waveny Park Engagement | Kim & Andrew

Published in Engagements
Going off to college is a time that is full of excitement and definitely marks a new chapter in someone's life. It is a time of new beginnings - new classes, new friends, new surroundings. When Kim went off to college, she had all of these expectations, but one thing it's safe to say she didn't expected was meeting her future husband right away! But as fate would have it, that's just what happened. Kim and Andrew met in the psychology class they had together freshman year and have been together since!  
 
Being around them you can't help feel the unique chemistry these two have and how much they compliment one another. And it's no secret they have a shared love for Martha's Vineyard, lobster rolls and their adorable pup Lucy. So it was only fitting that on one of their trips to Martha's Vineyard, Andrew proposed to Kim on a beautiful private beach!  
 
I loved spending every minute with these two during their engagement session at Waveny Park! Can't wait for their wedding next year!

Part Of The Bits And Pieces

Published in Personal
Every year Chris and I meet, spend time with and photograph couples that are truly amazing - each in their own way. Our brides and grooms are one of a kind, and after each wedding season I tell Chris I hope that all our future couples are just as awesome. And as cheesy as it sounds, each year they are. Their stories inspire us, and we are better artists for knowing them - they color in more of the world, showing us another bloom of true love. 
 
So I was completely surprised and at the same time not really at all when I received an amazing stop-in-my-tracks email from one of our brides last month. She's just that sweet, nice and thoughtful kind person that any photographer would be lucky to have as their client. To have my hand written note be part of the bits and pieces that make up her collage of everything she loves and looks forward to is such an honor. Having brides that are just as excited about you being their photographer as you are about being the one who gets to be a small part of their life during this exciting time is something I don't take for granted and will forever be grateful for. 
 
Below is my bride's email and the photo she sent along with it (thankful she let me share this since it meant so much)!
