Napatree Point Proposal and Engagement Session

Engagement

There’s nothing quite like a frigid February day at the beach – and despite these photos looking beautiful and sunny, I’ll tell you that wind was cutting through us as we walked. Nonetheless – Francesco’s proposal to Ashley, and subsequent engagement session at Napatree Point made for a beautiful evening.
Located near Mystic, Connecticut just across the Rhode Island border, Napatree is a stunning conservation area and beach. With only a few other people at the beach; we had the wide expanse of sand and dunes nearly to ourselves for a beautiful private session. The sun was definitely a paid actor, and the insanely gorgeous sunset was a perfect background as Ashley and Francesco danced on the beach, walked together, and cuddled in the sand dunes…

A Jane Austen Inspired Bridal Session

Portraits

I have wanted to photograph at Topsmead State Forest since I stumbled across their website in early 2023. Somehow, I never had the opportunity, so this winter I decided to make one. Topsmead has everything that makes my heart pitter patter – a stone wall against a tree covered lane, a beautiful English style cottage, and a pond with a small thicket of forsythia nearby…

A Branford House Wedding in Groton, CT

Wedding

Almost 18 months of planning went into this insanely beautiful wedding – and I got to be there every step of the way – as photographer, coordinator, florist, and friend. Kayla and I worked hand in hand, along with Tim’s frequent input, to put together their perfect small wedding at the Branford House in Groton, CT. Simple elegant florals that only highlighted the buildings beautiful architecture, as veritable feast, and an intimate get together that focused on who the couple was instead of just following tradition…

Tori & Steven’s CT Backyard Wedding

Wedding

Our team member, Seran, photographed Steven and Tori at their intimate backyard wedding, held at Tori’s parent’s house, on a beautifully soft rainy day. The couple had planned for the probability of rain, so the clouds and drizzle didn’t even give them pause – and their closest friends and family met in a large white tent in a yard decorated with buckets on buckets of wildflowers that brightened up the day, and umbrellas for the wedding party.
