I always recommend we carve out 20 minutes in the hour-ish before sunset, even if you’re doing a first look. That way we can get some photos of the two of you when the light is nice and soft. Shooting in midday sun (or night photos!) can be fun in a different, funky way, but for those flattering, glowy photos we want to be shooting a little later in the day. Especially if you’re getting married in a more rural or open, grassy area with trees. In the city there’s a bit more flexibility because of the tall buildings. This is all stuff we figure out when planning your photo timeline.
Booked a few new brides today ! But I do have a few dates left for the fall !

That moment when you fully lean into marriage and it sweeps you off of your feet.
First dance tip to those of you who are getting married and don’t like being the center of attention (me some day so I promise I know what I’m talking about): look at your partner who you have just committed yourself to, and nothing else. Try to ignore everything - the lights from the photographer (ayo I will be crying so it’s fine), everyone with their cellphones, all of the distractions. Even if you think you dance badly, you’ll dance beautifully because you’ll be dancing with your love. And that’s CUTE and beautiful. Mostly beautiful, I just like calling things cute 😉❤️

Happy Friday!!!! I know there is a big debate about cell phones at weddings .... As someone who has photographed, but also attended, a lot of weddings I am like most things I believe in in the middle. I do see the frustration... For the wedding, I shot last weekend someone stood right in front of me as I went to get a full shot of the ceremony. I also have taken pictures at friends weddings with my phone... I love taking pictures and preserving memories ... I just dont get on a soap box because your guests want to be a part of your day or else they wouldnt go... I dont get upset because I know the photos on my expensive camera and years of training will be a lot more beautiful then your friends dark phone pic... With that being said if your guests take photos thats fine just know if the stand in my way I may become the next Youtube sensation ;) #ctphotographer#weddinginspo#ctweddingphotographer#newenglandwedding#connecticutwedding#weddingphotography#blackandwhite#unpluggedwedding#maywedding#ctbrides#ctbridestobe#connecticutweddingphotographer
In LOVE with our 4 Year Anniversary photos that @courtneymorganphoto captured for us in the OBX 💕 Sharing more of my favorites on my stories!
Annual anniversary photos is one of my favorite traditions! I love printing them on canvas wraps and displaying them in our home.
Since it is #fridayintroductions I thought instead of just sharing some random facts about me I would share some about us instead!
1. We met our first year of college. Andrew asked me out 3 times before I agreed, but after that first date we have been together ever since.
2. We are both very entrepreneurial and love working together. Ever since waiting tables together in college we knew our goal one day was to work together. Our strengths and weaknesses really balance each other in that way. We are always throwing around new business ideas and have loved doing photography together and breeding our dogs.
3. We are both very competitive and love playing sports or games together. Our newest obsession is our foos ball table and it is how we determine who does the dishes every night 😝
That is a little about us, share something with us about you in the comments! ☺️
These two amazing people are getting married today!! It’s going to be a day full of @pete.manke cracking dad jokes during the most inappropriate times and @lbiale shaking her head while trying not to burst out laughing. What more can you ask for, right?! I can’t wait to celebrate with them!
Big thanks to @adventures_of_the_bagoongs for the recommending me to them!
I’ll be back with some wedding photos!

Man, was I looking forward to this day... Not only are @megan_sue1121 and @roland737 some of the most genuinely nicest people you'll ever meet but, when I met them and they told me where they were getting married, I instantly got excited!
Lighthouse point holds a special place in my heart. This is the spot My wife and I walked into and said "THIS IS IT....This is where we want to get married"
It's a beautiful rustic building. It's bright and beautiful. And to top it off, there's the most amazing carousel in there for everyone to ride the entire night!
What an amazing night it was. So full of love, laughter, friends and family!
✨ you've never looked so inviting as tonight babe⠀
glad it's me who takes you home ✨⠀
serendipity doesn't just exist in a John Cusack//Kate Beckinsale movie. this week, the stars aligned, and a team of incredible vendors and one BEAUTIFUL couple came together and made a long-time dream come true. no, i didn't just wish upon a star and make it happen - it took a lot of hard work and a lot of coordination but damn, was it worth it. many thanks to the vendors who helped this vision come to life (listed below).⠀
today i'm at The Knot Pro Workshop, learning from some of the industry's best and brightest, like the ever-fabulous @jovemeyer . i'm so excited to see what my next decade in the wedding industry looks like! stay tuned for some sneak peeks from the day! ⠀

Happy Wedding day Mike + Amanda ✨ although it may be the hottest day of the year and these two are straight steam pots, we’ll be rocking a camelback on both our backs all day and daydreaming back to their perfect winter Vermont engagement session, while holding ice packed to the back of their necks in between shots ❄️🤘🏽 TEAMWORK 👏🏽
