Fairfield CT Engagement Session | Karen & Eric

Published in Engagements
It truly felt like the last day of summer with the golden sunset, warm breeze and views of the Long Island Sound that reminded us why we love the beach so much. The tide had gone out and in the distance were folks digging and filling their baskets with fresh clams. It was like a painting and the perfect day for Karen and Eric's engagement session. These two are truly just so easy to be around. They walked across the sandbar, taking in the beauty all around them and talked about their story. About how they met. About how Eric was waiting for the perfect moment to propose to Karen when Mother Nature brought a flock of white swans their way and deer in the background at that moment. About how the proposal was magical and Karen was sosurprised. About all the things they are looking forward to. But as they talked, it was the undeniable happiness on their faces that was so so sweet to see. These two are getting married next summer along the Sound here in Connecticut and I can only imagine how incredible and beautiful it will be. We can't wait to document it! :) 
 
Here are some of my favorites from their Fairfield beach engagement session!

Rock the Dress Anniversary Session | Courtney & Ryan

Published in Anniversary
Walking along the rocky shoreline in Connecticut not far from where they have set down roots, Courtney and Ryan recalled the amazing day that had taken place just two years earlier. Two years ago surrounded by love ones who had travelled to picturesque Newport RI for their wedding day, they became husband and wife and celebrated all that was and was to come. Now they have their sweet baby son and thousands of memories since that day they said "i do." Their love and excitement for their future as a family has only grown since that beautiful day! 
 
Their anniversary Rock the Dress session on the coast was surely one I won't forget anytime soon! SO much fun spending time with these two and hearing them reminisce about their wedding day. Here are a few of my favorites from their session!

Gouveia Vineyard Engagement | Kristi & Lou

Published in Engagements
If you know Kristi and Lou, then you know they are one of the sweetest couples and just so fun to be around! I met them at another one of our couple's weddings last fall and I am so glad I did! What a delight it was to walk around Gouveia vineyard with them while talking bout their amazing wedding plans, their sweet pup Jameson, and everything and anything in between. With the cool breezes blowing through the rows of grape vines, an amazing golden sunset and the chemistry between this soon to be husband and wife, their engagement session was equally beautiful and fun. It was truly such a treat to hang out with and photograph these two! 
 
Krisit & Lou, I am so excited for you guys - congrats again on your engagement! Here are just some of my many favorites from your vineyard engagement session!

Saltwater Farm Vineyard Wedding | Alexis & Ian

Published in Weddings
I have always said and still believe there is something magical about winter weddings... the crisp cold air, the bright sky, and sometimes the fresh snow on the ground. This wedding had this winter magic along with the kind that comes from being with the one that your soul was meant to be with. The love between Ian and Alexis and the joining of two hearts and two families was a beautiful celebration to be a part of!  
 
Their loved ones flew in from around the world to the gorgeous Saltwater Farm vineyard to be witness to them becoming husband and wife and raise their champagne glasses to the newlyweds. There was dancing under twinkling lights, toasts of heartfelt words and memories made. Oh, and s'mores enjoyed at the end of the night! What's better then that?! 
 
Alexis & Ian - Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for allowing us to share in the joy of your wedding! We had so much fun and felt so lucky to be a small part of it! Congrats again you two!

Country Club of Darien Wedding | Ashley & Patrick

Published in Weddings
I am so excited to finally share this beyond gorgeous wedding at the Country Club of Darien from earlier this year now that it was featured on Carats & Cake! In case you missed it, click here to see the feature!  
 
The story of Ashley and Patrick's wedding day was written with moments that bring tears to your eyes (literally) and leave a mark on your heart. The pages of their celebration were full of memories equally if not more breathtaking then the next. Two of my favorite moments have to be when Ashley saw her father for the first time and when Ashley & Patrick had their First Look before becoming husband and wife! 
 
Everything about this wedding celebration was so beautiful, from the carefully picked out and planned details, to the words spoken and the love felt. It was one we will never forget! 
 
Ashley & Patrick - From the bottom of hearts, thank you for choosing us to be your photographers and a part of your amazing wedding day! We adore you two and couldn't be happier for you both!
