John & Zakia: A wistful wedding in West Hartford!

On July 18, 2009 I had the honor of photographing John & Zakia's wedding in West Hartford. It was a romantic & beautiful event, with their closest friends and family in attendance. John & Zakia are such a gorgeous couple, and so in love. I had a wonderful time capturing this special moment for them!

Michael & Betsy: A marriage made in Massachusetts!

I had the wonderful oppertunity to second shoot a wedding with my sweet and dear friend Nicole Taylor of Nicole Taylor Photography. This beautiful wedding took place in a gorgeous garden & gazebo in Massachusetts. Nicole & I had so much fun doing this wedding together! The bride & groom, Betsy & Michael, were such a loving & amazing couple. I enjoyed photographing their love for one another, and their family, so very much. Here are a few pics from Sunday:

Look at this fruit basket! How creative - little mice!

Wishing all the best to the happy couple! Congrats!

Ben & Kristie

My brother-in-law Ben met Kristie at Tunxis Community College this past Spring. I remember how nervous and excited he was when he told me he was planning on asking her out. As you can see, they hit it off and are the sweetest little couple ever. Ben asked me if I could take some simple pictures of him & Kristie. I of course said yes! Here are a few pictures from our mini-session at Hillstead Museum in Farmington. Aren't the cutest? :)

David & Tiffany's Engagement Session

Meet David and Tiffany! This couple was so much fun during their engagement session. They are super-cute (as you can see from the pictures below) and I just couldn't get enough of them! Even though their wedding isn't until next year, they wanted to take some pictures at my secret graffitti spot ;) We parked on the side of the road by the woods and followed a hidden, narrow path onto some train tracks. We then trekked through the forest until we got to our destination. It was worth it! Take a peek at some of the images:
After we were done taking pictures here, we decided to stop by Rockwell Park a few streets away. I found myself saying "awww!" a lot because they are just so in love ♥ It was sweet watching them tease each other. I can't wait to photograph their wedding on 10/10/10! Here are a couple shots from the park, enjoy!:
