Real Weddings

Romance never goes out of style. As people’s tastes change, and fad’s come and go, at the end of the day we remember the feelings we had during the milestone events in our lives, as well as the little things we do for one another so that they know just how important they are to us. From the moment we first met with Jessica’s mom who filled us in on the whole back-story of her daughter and Nils, we knew that they are hopeless romantics. This was confirmed by their beautiful...

When they were both undergrads together at Duke University, Melissa had thought she knew Russell. He was a frat guy, she thought, not serious. Then, two months before she graduated, Russell offered to walk her home from the bar where they had both happened to be. On that walk home, they talked. They talked about a number of things but when Russell told Melissa about his favorite violin concerto, he spoke about it so eloquently that Melissa felt as though she was finally seeing Russell for the very first time....

The classic, ideal Western wedding is sort of a palindrome: you start the day slowly building to the heights of finery, hoping to look better than you ever have in your life, culminating in the stunning formality of a wedding ceremony … and then you let it all go in wild revelry, a mash of joy and sweat and hairpins. It’s how we squeeze every last bit of happiness and camaraderie out of a single day, and Jackie and Corey’s wedding was an incredible expression of the form. Beauty? Well,...

5.28.2011 – Ashley and Scott These two are adorable and we had just seen them the month before for their engagement session in NYC so shooting with them was still fresh and we all had a blast!  As a wordie, can I call myself that, like a foodie but with words, one of my favorite parts of their marriage is that Ashely only had to change one letter in her name to have his last name!  So fun! They are also super easy to photograph, totally in love, adorable together…that makes our...

You might remember Katie and Ben from the wintery engagement session we posted–we were beyond excited for their July wedding because it was happening with one of our favorite families at one of our favorite places!  I cannot say enough wonderful things about Lord Thompson Manor in Thompson, CT.  It is the perfect country estate for a whole weekend event where friends and family can stay and be together for more than just the wedding reception.  The gorgeous Cottage House, right up the street from the Manor is perfect for getting...

This is one of my absolute favorite places to photograph–if you want glamor and elegance and an all in one place affair with an all hands on deck staff who make the event perfect than a Lord Thompson Manor Wedding is the place for you.  The getting ready space is all white on white on white…which, I’ll be honest, is a photographer’s dream, and sometimes I find myself daydreaming of decorating my own house with all white floors, furniture, walls, linens, decorations, etc…anything you put in the space after that...

When Stefanie & Chris asked me to photograph their wedding, it felt like eons away. Both of them were studying to be doctors and they decided on a long engagement, focusing on their careers and putting in long hours at the hospital. So, I've been looking forward to capturing their wedding day for quite some time now and was over the moon about their gorgeous venue, the Lord Thompson Manor in Connecticut. I was so inspired by Stef's vision of deep hues, fruit on the table, and really cool objects like...

Bridget and Mike had the most flawless summer wedding at Lord Thompson Manor in Thompson, CT. The bridal prep was bright and white with touches of sparkles. The groom and groomsmen dressed in classic black and white tuxes. I absolutely love the combination of a stunning mansion but with a short walk beyond the ceremony space you’re walking in the woods (and a walk you could do in heels!) We got most of the portraits out of the way before the ceremony so everyone could enjoy the cocktail reception with Bridget...
