Workshop with Carla Ten Eyck – City Hall, Hartford, CT

Last month, I took a workshop with the incredibly talented, Carla Ten Eyck (CT’s very own master wedding photog). This workshop came right in time before I kicked off my wedding season…and it focused on posing! Carla provided us with all of the key elements: a stunning couple, gorgeous flowers, beautiful makeup & hair, and my new favorite location ever…the Hartford City Hall!

Although I had so many favorites, but here are just a few.






These last two I grabbed while Carla was doing her thing, but I still loved my point of view on it!


Thanks to our Models Brooke & Jeremy, and to Erin of  Simply Gorgeous for Brooke’s look!

Trash The Dress with Lauren – Hamden, CT

Unfortunately I am a little behind on posting some of the shoots I’ve done with other photographers last year. Last spring the fabulous Suzanna of Suzanna March Photography let me join one of her trash the dress sessions.


All of the gorgeous bouquets were provided by Pygmalion Design




I had too many favorites from this session…



Sheena & Jeff – Day After Session in Providence, RI

I couldn’t wait to do Sheena and Jeff’s Day After Session because they are so much fun to be around…oh and because I love taking their picture, but most importantly, they are a blast!


Their session was a perfect example of doing a Day After Session (Trash the Dress) without actually trashing it! These sessions are my favorite because it is a crazy, fun, exciting excuse to wear your dress again and play around a little more with out the hustle and bustle of your wedding day!


Even Sheena’s mom and her boyfriend got in on the action!



Trash The Dress with Alicyn

The wedding day is over, now what to do with the dress? Why box it up and put is away when you can wear it AGAIN?!

This Trash The Dress session was so much fun. Thanks so much to the beautiful Alicyn for spending the afternoon with me and to Kaylie for doing all of the makeup, hair and styling. Also a huge shout out to Amiee of Flowers by Amelia for making such a gorgeous bouquet for me!
