Eyes up, heart open
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
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! Their families traveled from far and wide, and many were meeting for the first time at the wedding. It was sweet watching all of the hugging and camaraderie all day, and everyone made me feel like I was part of the family! The day was steeped in many traditions from both sides, and photographing them all made me so incredibly happy…!
Ryan and Tina were recently married at Saint Patrick’s Church and had their awesome reception at Farmington Gardens. What can I say about this couple? I’m sure you will see from their wedding photos just how happy and in love they really are. I love when my clients are the laid back type, like these two, who give me 100% of their trust and let me create for them! Here is a gallery of some of my favorite images of this beautiful couple’s wedding!
Danielle & Casey recently got married and had a really fun wedding at The Riverhouse At Goodspeed Station. My favorite moments of their day usually included their son, G, who was just the cutest, most polite kid ever and an awesome Ring Bearer. The weather was also perfect, can you say big puffy clouds!?!?! Shout out to Matt Fink of DMO Films, who I always have a blast working with and also my second shooter, Mike Romano!

Melissa and Jeff’s wedding at Harkness Memorial park in Waterford had it all…a beautiful, perfect day, a big group of happy family there to celebrate Melissa and Jeff’s vows to one another all in a gorgeous setting! What more could you ask for? Melissa had a smile on her face the entire day, and was calm and happy and so ready to marry Jeff. Mike got to spend the morning with Jeff and his guys in Mystic while me and the ladies spent time at Harkness before the ceremony taking pictures and enjoy the beautiful day. Read More
Carole + Stefan are darling, and their day couldn’t have been any more beautiful. These two are so very much in love and it was so sweet to witness. Surrounded by their friends and family, Carole + Stefan wed on a perfectly sunny June afternoon.
I wish you both a lifetime of happiness, and Harry Potter adventures. Thank you so much for having Ryan and I there with you for the day, it was just perfect.

“Maybe there isn’t enough music,” I said to Greg a couple weeks before the wedding, as we were finally deciding on what would happen during our ceremony. “Music is important. What if there isn’t enough?”
“There’s enough music, Julia,” Greg said, knowing that he would surprise me with a song during the ceremony; guessing correctly that I would be surprising him with a song during the reception; planning a little flashmob Muppets-song-and-dance with our improv group; having just emailed our friends to play bluegrass and sing opera as part of our vows; pretending that Read More

Debra and Christopher are such a great couple! Fun, happy, classy, and in love are a few words that describe them perfectly. Their wedding day was nothing short of perfect, it included an elegant First Look at the Inn At Middletown, a double rainbow all the way, (What does it mean?!?!?) a beautiful unplugged ceremony at The Pavilion On Crystal Lake, and a fun night of dancing afterwards. Here are just a few of my favorite photographs from their day. Deb and Chris, congratulations and all the best!
