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…

Portraits

Kayla & Tim’s Connecticut Micro-Wedding

Wedding

Kayla and Tim decided they wanted to have an intimate micro-wedding the week before their bigger wedding, at their Southbury home. So, on September 15, I met them at their gorgeous house tucked away in the woods on the edge of town – where I spent an hour with this stunning couple documenting their backyard wedding with their immediate families and closest friends. They had flowers from the bride’s grandmother, got ready in their own room, and legally exchanged vows in their yard, right next to their garden…
