New York Botanical Garden Engagement | Anne + Javier

Friday, February 24, 2017

I couldn't think of a more perfect escape from winter than the New York Botanical Gardens.  Turns out Presidents Day was unseasonably warm at 50 degrees. From the moment I met, Anne + Javier, you could feel the immensity of their love. We were instantly intoxicated with the heavy scent of orchids and welcomed into the conservatory with plants that embraced us.  I was immediately transported to my memories of Costa Rica, that lush tropical environment and I soon forgot it was winter.  We joyfully wandered our way through the expansive gardens and took in each botanical gift.  From witnessing their laughter, dancing, kissing and hugs, there is no shortage of passion.  At one moment, I asked Anne to see her ring and that's when Javier, popped the surprise!  He gave her a beautiful giraffe ring!  Something only these two can share with you, that is near and dear to their hearts.  We wandered our way through the plants, ducking and pausing in the rays of light and shadow and snuck away from the holiday crowd just long enough to catch a glimpse of their love.  I felt like I was on vacation following these two sweethearts through the jungle on their adventure.  We skipped the main course and went straight for desert transporting us to that honeymoon feeling.

I'm more than excited to photograph their wedding next month in Mystic.  We shall see what Mother Nature has in store for us.

Engaged | Kayla + Matt | Lake Mohegan

Tuesday, February 14, 2017

I hope cupid's arrow hits you right in the heart. This story is about to melt all this snow. Kayla and Matt met on Valentines Day three years ago and their love for craft brews grew!  Soon after they met, these two adventurous spirits went on vacation together to Florida, where Matt proposed a couple years later.  Their love has since grown and have two sweet dogs together, Brady and Brewski who joined them on their winter engagement session.  If you are a dog lover and live near Fairfield, CT visit Lake Mohegan for a leash free hiking experience with your pups.  Happy Valentines lovers!  See you in September. xo

Wedding | Stephanie + Kyle | Copper Beech Inn

Sunday, December 18, 2016

What a way to end my wedding season with fond, loving memories.  Stephanie and Kyle are seriously some of the kindest people I’ve ever come across, not unlike many of my other couples. I have a deep connection to these two and love them a bunch.  Stephanie's endless laughter is contagious and her wonderment and appreciation for every single detail made my heart skip a beat.  Their loving kindness serves yet another testament to how undeniably lucky I am to do this for a living.

If there’s anything I want folks to take away from this love story, it’s that these two are the sweetest and I really care a lot for them. From our first meeting in my studio, they welcomed me into their lives without hesitation.  I will say it again, I am very fortunate.
