As the season’s cycle ends, we briefly pause to reflect on the previous year. We have come to the conclusion that it was definitely one of the best. From one stunning location to the next, and with the wonderful couples that we’ve gotten the chance to work with, there have been great strides in what we’ve accomplished working in the intimate field of wedding photography in CT. Our art continues to grow; and every wedding is better than the last one.
The old world feel of the smaller East Coast communities lends itself to creating gorgeous photos. With our work from previous years in these fascinating locations, we’ve been able to develop a focus of prime locations within each of these venues. We are convinced that wedding photographers in CT give the best results because the artist knows and understands the nuances of locations such as these. In reviewing our work from this previous year, we are proud to say that we have this one aspect dialed in.
From the tip of Maine to the more southerly states of New York and New Jersey, we’ve traveled quite a bit this last year to give each of our wonderful couples the attention they deserve in the location they desire. We’ve walked sandy beaches, explored majestic historical sites and country clubs, and viewed breathtaking scenery. Not too bad for a small wedding photographer in CT. And with the memories of this previous year’s amazing opportunities still in our mind’s eye, we can’t tell you how much we are looking forward to next year. Between the new folks we’re going to work with and the grand locations we’ll visit, we’re excited to see what this New Year brings us.
Lizandra and Braulio were excited to get married and we were excited about having one of our first weddings of the season be held at the beautiful Riverview in Simsbury, Connecticut. The Riverview is a dream venue for any wedding photographer. The wedding was set on a sunny day in April with a mild winter chill still clinging on into the spring season. With ample lighting, we were able to take the Braulio and his groomsmen outside for some natural shots on the beautiful landscape.
The ceremony took place inside the magnificent ballroom of the Riverview. The ballroom had plenty of light from its lamp fixtures, but what I found pleasing as a wedding photographer was the ability to take shots with more natural light coming into the room from the huge windows. It was the perfect time of day to capture the beauty of natural light juxtaposed within the confines of the indoor ceremonial room.
Lizandra and Braulio were very fun to work with and I especially enjoyed the spin they took to the decor of the room. From the table napkins, to the groomsmen’s ties, to the bridesmaids dresses and shoes, green was everywhere!
I love what I do for a living. You see, I am in the business of watching people come together and documenting it for future days. I take a record of the most wondrous of events, the uniting of two individuals for love’s sake. I am a CT wedding photographer and I am proud of the service I provide.
Take for example the recent wedding of Stephanie and Gregory. The setting was a private residence in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, which is one my favorite places to visit outside of Connecticut, my own home state. This beach wedding was simply stunning, with the “I do’s” being mingled with the sound of crashing waves, and slight ocean breezes keeping the witnesses nice and cool. Many smiles and laughs, along with a few tears as well, were recorded through my camera lens. With the beach and ocean as a wondrous backdrop, this CT wedding photographer was able to catch some wonderful moments in time. The happy couple even wished to end their day with a playful jump into the ocean fully clothed, which brought about an impromptu photo session with a mock “trash the dress”.
All in all, it was a beautiful day and I felt privileged to be a part of it. As Stephanie and Gregory grow old together, they will have the photos I captured of their wedding day to bring back memories. Traveling from Connecticut to Cape Cod is a very small price to pay to provide that essential service. And it is my honor to do so.
The day had finally come for Ryan and Danielle to tie the knot. Both inside and out, this couple matched each other with their beauty and kindness. They defined the words “perfect couple” and chose a location that reflects it, the Riverview in Monroe, Connecticut. Filled with well-manicured greenery, and the occasional bright flash of color from flowers, there couldn’t be a better backdrop to unite these two as husband and wife. Nature herself seemed to understand what a sacred and special day this needed to be and provided them with beautiful weather for their wedding. I was fortunate enough to be the CT wedding photographer who had the chance to capture it all on film.
There were so many brilliant moments that presented themselves for my camera lens. While capturing poignant photos of family and friends, dancing, cake cutting, and the like, the real focus was the ceremony itself; this one was proved to be stellar. The Connecticut sunlight created a marvelous backdrop as she walked down the aisle. She was absolutely stunning in her long dress and veil, the very essence of beauty. With Ryan at her side at the altar, the ceremony was both touching and moving.
Some folks may wonder as to why being a CT wedding photographer has become my chosen profession. The truth is because I get to witness days such as that one. I get to capture on film the uniting of two souls that have found each other in this big, old world of ours. To be honest, I couldn’t be any happier.
Picture the perfect Connecticut summer day; warm but not too warm, green rolling hills heading off into the distance. Simply the perfect time and place for a wedding. The setting was the Farmington Country Club. As Michael began to speak his vows to his gorgeous bride Robin, a quick moment of gratitude crossed my mind. Being in the Connecticut wedding photography business, I have the great fortune to capture all of this through the frame of my lens. And I couldn’t be more honored to be a contributor to special days such as these.
Both my wife and I teamed together for this particular wedding. It was necessary to not just have one CT wedding photographer, but two instead so that we possessed the ability to capture all of the day’s endearing moments. She focused her efforts on the bridal party as they began their walk down the aisle. This allowed me to be attentive to family member’s reactions and capture all of the smiles, along with a few happy tears. Both sides were covered and we got some incredible shots. On this beautiful Connecticut day, we saw it as our responsibility to give the family a myriad of moments in time to hold and treasure.
With that in mind, we do our best to approach all weddings with the same care and sense of responsibility. To photograph these wondrous events go far beyond a simple paycheck. Ultimately it is an honor and a duty, one that we take pride in having the ability to do.
