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.
There’s nothing better than an East Coast wedding. It’s the sense of history that this area possesses and the aesthetic eye that allows new structures to embrace aspects of the old that help make it special. Take for example the Woodwinds, located in Branford, Connecticut. I adore this place and look forward to shooting a wedding there every time.
Having a wedding at that location provided many different backdrops for all sorts of portraits and shots. It made my job as a CT wedding photographer that much more creative by having multiple elements to work with for a shot. From the rocky and dramatic beaches to the gentle and minutely manicured lawns and landscaping, this place has everything needed to take memorable wedding portraits. Granted this spot might be a bit unique in what it has to offer. However, as previously mentioned, it is the aesthetic of Connecticut, embracing the past and paying homage with the new.
Recently, I was privileged to shoot a wedding at The Woodwinds for a wonderful couple, Ashley and Ryan. We utilized every aspect that the property had to offer. And yes, the pictures turned out beautifully. But that’s what you get when you bring me on board as a CT wedding photographer. I will use every opportunity to my advantage and any backdrop necessary to bring the most out of my client’s wedding photos. I take pride in what I’m able to accomplish. However, I can’t take all of the credit. I mean, I am shooting in the state where the best weddings happen. Like I said, there is nothing better than an East Coast wedding.
When Sherri and Robert planned their wedding day, they searched high and low for a special location, and with a summer ceremony in the works, there could be no place better than a pristine white beach with shimmering blue waters in the distance. Fortunately, Connecticut had just the location. From a photographer’s point of view, places such as Anthony’s Ocean View are optimum in bringing about the best in our craft.
I have had the honor to shoot many weddings across this great state of mine and it is a craft that I treat with the appropriate mix of creativity and responsibility. Being a CT wedding photographer is something I treasure, especially since my job allows me to be in the presence of so many wonderful treasured moments, with Sherri and Robert’s wedding being a brilliant example. It was the perfect balance of sacredness and celebration. While beach weddings, especially on the Connecticut shores, can bring about an air of casualness, this wedding retained that sense of the gravity concerning the power of love and the strength of commitment. Its signature can be seen in every photograph that I was fortunate enough to take that day.
The subjects were more than willing to work with me, their families were open to the experience, and the landscape was as glorious as it should be for this type of day. Being a CT wedding photographer on days such as these are what I live for. A perfect beach, a sacred ceremony, and a gorgeous summer’s afternoon. I must admit, I really love what I get to do for a living.
Connecticut Wedding Photography: Best Job in the World
Imagine getting to spend your day visiting some of the most elegant and beautiful locations that the upper East Coast has to offer. Not only that, you also get the good fortune to be among wonderful celebrations where the focus is love and commitment. And finally, you get to be the one that documents it all. There are many reason as to why we chose a career involved in Connecticut wedding photography, but if the truth were to be told, it is combination of the above elements. The sights, the emotion, and the art; that is a winning combo in anyone’s book. Allow me to offer an example.
Our most recent excursion brought us to the delightful and gorgeous Water’s Edge Resort and Spa, in Westbrook CT., to document the wedding of Jessica and Tom. Already, I knew this was going to be a wonderful shoot due to my love of this location and the people involved. The wonderful place lends a lot to the art in Connecticut wedding photography. While it’s true that the day started out quite windy, it wound down and presented us with one of those majestic East Coast sunsets. Needless to say, we took advantage of what nature had provided us with.
From the wonderful couple to the fun bridal party in tow, they were the very essence of lively and enjoyable subjects to work with. While a client expects good things out of Connecticut wedding photography, which of course we do our best to cater to, it helps when our clients are having a good time. This day was no exception, with a fun and happy couple, surrounded by loved ones and friends. All in all, it was a very good day.
There are many places within my home state that possess many beautiful traits that can catch a photographer’s eye. From the cityscape to the lush East Coast countryside, there are sights that can excite the creative spark that rests in my heart and mind. With that being said, one of the brightest creative sparks within the borders of Connecticut is the Woodwinds Reception Hall in Branford. It embraces the best of the old with the aesthetic of the modern; an ideal place for a wedding. I’ve been fortunate to have photographed many nuptials at this wonderful location and it is the perfect backdrop for two individuals to come together as man and wife. Being a CT wedding photographer, I have seen a great deal of what this state has to offer. This location is simply one of the best.
Not too long ago, I had the extreme fortune to document the wedding of two wonderful individuals, Diana and Mike, at this incredible place. We chose to use one of those gorgeous Connecticut sunsets for the backdrop of the bride’s photo shoot. Diana, in her beautiful white wedding dress, looked like a goddess as she was framed by all the warm fall colors as the sun touched the horizon. Working with both families was nothing more than a positive experience. It was obvious that they were invested in helping me bring about some memorable moments for both the bride and groom. There really wasn’t much more that this CT wedding photographer could have asked for. These are the days that I especially love what I do for a living and am counting the days until I get to return to the Woodwinds.
