DAN & GINA ARE MARRIED!

Dan and Gina are very special friends of mine and my husband (Steven).  Dan and Steven work together and are two of the funniest men I have ever known.  When the four of us are together we spend so much time laughing and the rest of the time is spent with Gina and I rolling are eyes and them mimicking us!

 I was lucky enough to spend the early afternoon with Gina and her bridesmaids as they were getting ready for Gina's big day!   Gina was so relaxed and you could tell she was enjoying the process, no stress for this girl!


Dan and Gina wrote one another letters, and being able to watch them both read it privately was one of my favorite moments from the day. 


Special thanks to Gina's cousin, Dylan, we were able to hang her dress in the most perfect spot for it to shine!  Also...those SHOES!!!


Once the boys arrived at the Farmington Club we knew it was safe to sneak Gina over to their bridal suite. When I arrived Gina's uncles and cousins were turning the reception area into everything Gina and Dan had envisioned. 




Before we knew it it was time to tie the knot!  




Gina and der dad as they begin their walk down the aisle.  The Farmington Club is such a wonderful backdrop.


Dan's face when he saw Gina.....his smile could not have been any bigger!!


Officially husband and wife!  Congratulations you two!!


Following the ceremony, after the guys were done snacking ;), we spent time doing formals.  




I always love when there are couples in the bridal party, and these two were SO much fun!


When Gina, Dan and I snuck away from everyone to do their portraits they could not stop smiling, I honestly don't think they've ever been happier!





When I tell you the reception was fun...I mean F.U.N!! The guests at this wedding brought their dancing shoes and were not afraid of the camera!  My kind of people!!








What a wonderful opportunity to photograph your wedding, Dan and Gina.  Thank you!  I hope you enjoy this teaser and I can't wait to watch your marriage blossom!  Always remember- cookies for dinner.

Surprise! Mallory & Brian

It was last Sunday when my phone buzzed...I had a new Facebook message from an old friend who is also a regular client.  It was a message like no other!  She and her fiancĂ© had a master plan to surprise their family and friends.  They were planning to have a secret wedding ceremony and wanted me to be a part of it!  They would also be celebrating her 30th birthday that night.  The party was supposed to be  a surprise for her ... but in reality the surprise would be on the guests!  Mallory and Brian would be announced as Mr. & Mrs!

When I arrived to the Mansion at Bald Hill, in Woodstock, CT Brain was a little nervous and Mallory was a ball of energy.  I went up to the suite where Mallory was putting on her finishing touches.  





It wasn't long after that we headed down the ceremony.  
Brian's face lit up when he saw Mallory for the first time!  


Brian and Mallory exchanged personal and beautiful vows.  There was laughing, funny stories and most importantly the promise to raise Harper, their daughter, to the best of their abilities. Tears I tell ya!!




Once vows were exchanged we explored the grounds to take portraits.  How stunning and happy are they!!










A few hours later we met back up to pull of the surprise of the night!  Mallory's friends and family were throwing her a surprise birthday party.  Little did they know Mallory and Brian had the biggest surprise for them!!  








Brian & Mallory-  Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of this incredible day!  It was so hard keeping the secret but it was so worth it!!  Wishing you a lifetime of happiness!

love love love

[Engaged} Kristin & Brian

These two are in L-O-V-E! Whenever I told Kristin to get closer to Brian she smiled so big and snuggled right in, it was so wonderful to see.  Kristin, Brian and I met up at Elizabeth Park, which I had never been to.....I KNOW!  How is that possible!  It was stunning and these two made my job so easy!  Here is just a sneak at some of  my favorites from their session:









THIS RING!!!  Brian did GOOD!


Kristin and Brian- Thank you for choosing me to capture this very special time in your life <3
