downtown hartford elopement by carla ten eyck

Intimate, mid-week weddings seem to be my JAM this summer!! Not sure how or why… but I’ll take it!  There is something so…dare I say intimate..? ha ha about them! That I am only one of three people or less present at such a big day is something so special to me. The focus becomes so much more on the couple, their vows and the sheer act of getting married. Lauren and Patrick were married on their actual Anniversary of August 1 in a city they, and I, love to pieces.. downtown Hartford, CT. Hartford is one of the Read More

lace factory wedding | sophie + geof

My sweet friends Sophie and Geof got married this summer, and it was simply beautiful. Surrounded by their favorite friends and family members, they exchanged thoughtful vows, laughed with each other, played in the sunset, and danced the night away. It was a truly perfect day, and I am so glad that I was able to watch it all happen. My darling friend Ali helped me capture the day, and here are some of my very favorites.
Sophie + Geof, Thank you for having us along, it was so, so lovely. Enjoy each other, and all of your adventures to come!Read More

intimate summer woodland wedding by carla ten eyck

When I first met Lauryn and CJ, they showed up at my workshop to be my models for the day for a posing workshop I was teaching. I knew right from the start that they had something special together… the way they looked at each other, how kind and gentle they were with one another…it was so beautiful to watch! To add to this…? They were absolute magic in front of my camera! So comfortable, so relaxed… they just knew what to do! I offered little to no guidance- well, except for the fact that I was teaching an Read More

loomis chaffee wedding | corie + pat

My friends Corie + Pat got married on a sunny day in June, and I could not have been any more excited to document their day. I fell in love with these guys this winter when I photographed their engagement shoot. Ever since then, I’ve been dreaming of their sweet wedding. Photographing these two was a dream. They just fit together, perfectly. They make each other laugh, hold each other just right, and snuggle like nobody’s business. My dear friend Jasmine was there by my side to photograph them, and we looked certifiably insane, hootin’ and hollerin’ at every little move these cuties Read More

tralee farm wedding | beth + shane

Beth + Shane. You guys. This day was just the most beautiful day ever. It started with the loveliest  drive to New York with my darling friend Ali, listening to hippie music and drinking strong coffee. Little did we know we were about to drive right into FARM LAND! We were met by some angry looking cows, but kept on trucking to meet our new friends, Beth and Shane.
We were greeted with such love, that we knew this day would be something special. And it was. From the love-infused ceremony, to the thoughtful, handcrafted details, and daisies, to the giant Read More

Blooming Hill Farm To Table Wedding – Monroe, NY. by Dave Noonan

Can I just tell you how much I loved this wedding?  Cayce and Laura are from Brooklyn and own Buddha Chocolate, an organic, raw and unprocessed chocolate company in Williamsburg.  They were recently married at Blooming Hill Farm in Monroe, NY.  What I really loved was that this was a true farm to table wedding where all of the food served was locally grown and prepared right there on the farm by their talented chef.  Be prepared to see some amazing food in this post, but be warned, it may make you hungry.  Another highlight of the night was the Read More

Inyoung and Jonathan’s wedding at L’Escale at The Delamar Hotel in Greenwich, CT this May was an intimate and emotional day that I was so happy to be a part of!
