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.
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!
