Two Brides Wed at Red Maple Vineyard with Carla Ten Eyck

Liz and Maya’s wedding at Red Maple Vineyard was perfection on every level: from the giddy + happy wedding party (not to mention FUNNY!) to the perfect weather, to the many many gorgeous places for portraits (wow wow wow!) and all wrapped up in their families and friends love and support. It was a day to be remembered! And guys: THERE WAS A SWING UNDER A HUGE GORGEOUS TREE! Yes, I totally had to yell that! Because… look! (you gotta scroll down) The vistas, the laughing, the sneaky spots to work in, the light, and Liz and Maya just Read More

Winter St. Clements Castle Wedding Preview with Carla Ten Eyck

Oh, yesterday. I am still processing my feelings from Rachel and Gabby’s wedding but am so excited to share a few of the images from their super emotional, super amazing day.  Gabby and Rachel are the most eloquent writers, their vows just about blew the roof off the church, there was not a dry eye in sight. I was literally stopped in my tracks to the point where I set my camera down so I could absorb the words better. I felt completely transformed. I plan on writing so much more when I post their full post here so Read More

Same Sex Wedding at the Pond House Cafe with Carla Ten Eyck

When Stacy reached out to me for her wedding to Jenese, I was beyond excited. Not only was I pumped that I was available for it (I was not for her first wedding) but also because she had found her true love. I knew it as soon as I saw them both together. They just… clicked. The way they looked at one another, the way they were so gentle with each other, how easily they laughed with one another. It’s the stuff that I can’t wait to have , but delight in seeing my friends, clients and family have. Read More

same sex wedding at the webb barn with carla ten eyck

One of my favorite weddings of all time has got to be the wedding of Diane and Susan. Their love story started 30 years ago on the day they decided to make it official, and forever linked their hearts and souls to one another, officially, anyway, since they had long since given in to loving one another wholeheartedly years ago. It was beautiful weather, and they were surrounded by the most loving and excited group of friends and family. I took special note of this, because I have photographed some weddings where the family doesn’t approve of same sex marriages Read More

same sex wedding at lord thompson manor with carla ten eyck

Brendan + Ryan were married this fall at Lord Thompson Manor, one of my very favorite places in Connecticut to work, of so many reasons. The way they treat everyone just makes me never feel like I am ‘working’ it feels more like a family all pulling together for our friends. Brendan + Ryan are also two of the most open and loving people, with such style and attention to detail it made my heart and eyes sing so loud! No detail was left out- and between these two lovelies and the staff at the Manor AND the ladies Read More

love is love: new haven lawn club same sex wedding with carla ten eyck

Chris + Tyler and their clan of crazy fun family and friends (some of which I consider my own Family) partied the day away with so much emotion, love, laughing and dancing at The New Haven Lawn Club in New Haven CT. I met Chris years before when I photographed his sister (and my now family and ride or die) Liz + Greg’s wedding. She was married on my 10th wedding anniversary, and decided to have the wedding she did because her Dad was fighting a valiant fight with cancer. He ended up losing his fight after years of being Read More

martha’s vineyard same sex wedding with carla ten eyck

 
One of my favorite things about living in Connecticut is its proximity to some pretty amazing locations! We have New York City, Boston, Newport, Vermont, The Hudson River Valley and one of my favorite places: the island of Martha’s Vineyard! Once you step foot off the ferry it’s like you are transported to another place and time… add to this the most loving and amazing couple and just hit me over the head with a frying pan I am done! Sarah + Beth are two of the most happy and roll with it people I have met- which Read More

michael and michael’s castle hill wedding with carla ten eyck

 

I can’t say enough about the Michaels. From our first chat on the phone (where I feel like I was squealing on the inside, and quite possibly it was on the outside!) after hearing how excited they were to marry each other with the love and support of their friends and family at one of the most beautiful venues in Newport… Castle Hill..(!) I just couldn’t wait to see how it all unfolded. How dashing they would look in their tuxes. How they would so tenderly look into each others’ eyes as they exchanged vows. Read More
