Emily and Ben became family this past weekend. There was significant anticipation for this event for there were so many great friends/vendors on board. Also this groom, is a brother of a previous groom who happened to marry his wife’s best friend who met at their wedding. A lot of the same wedding folk and similar guests too. In addition and even more importantly, there was a deep reverence for God, very strong family relationships, and a couple who really complemented each other oh so well. Saltwater Farms Vineyard shared in the festivities of celebration. Gourmet Galley fed us ALL so well. Delicious – those lobster rolls rocked! Power Posse Productions pumped us up with good beats. Yumiko from Hana Floral continues to impress with some of the most beautiful flowers ever. Sarah and Caitlin from True Event contributed in peace and design. In my book, very highly valued contributions. Thank you Emily and Ben for having our team help to tell your beautiful beginning as husband and wife! More to come in the upcoming weeks.
Michaela and Joe shared their love this past weekend. They are so good for each other. Beautiful to see the way they care for one another. This family hugged and hugged and hugged. I walked away feeling so loved and with a new HUG vocabulary. What a gift! So many friends and family came to celebrate. Thanks so much for having me there to make pictures for you. Here’s a little glimpse. More to come soon!
Many folks have asked how they could make a gift of my photography. For the person who has everything, or one who’s not interested in things, or one who would simply appreciate it, here are some FUN and UNIQUE gift ideas for last minute shoppers. Perhaps this is the gift you have never thought to give or the one you haven’t been able to find. These gifts are different, beautiful and perfect for your lovely someone. Plus, they come at a great savings:
All gifts come with a lovely frame or ornament wrapped with care as a token of the commission that awaits. Orders will be taken through the 22nd of December. Let’s get shopping!
Consider giving a CHILD’S PORTRAIT COMMISSION – a classic heirloom portrait in black and white that perhaps catches the soulful gaze of a young one. I regularly take this sort of portrait of my own children and they are always adored by my friends and family. I extend this offering to all of you because these are my most prized treasures. Regularly priced
350.00, but now 175.00 ( includes 8 files from the shoot).
Or consider a FAMILY ADVENTURE COMMISSION – This idea comes from my heart. I have these moments when– as a family– we are hiking together, planting/harvesting our garden, taking a morning at the beach, visiting the local orchard, chopping down a christmas tree, sailing, sledding, or just sharing any kind of good time. This is when I think to myself– WOW!!!– this is simply gorgeous. I wish I had a photographer here to see all this yumminess! I have long since stopped doing organized portraiture with matching outfits and grumpy kids. In my own family, once a year is enough when we take THE family picture. It’s often an artificial, forced interruption of activity. Let’s face it– it’s simply not much fun. But when a family does what a family loves most, it’s pure joy. And guess what? A family having fun and being together is photo worthy! As an example, the pictures below were made when we went to the flower farm to pick flowers for Grammie’s birthday. Regularly priced
895.00, now 495.00 (includes 75 files from the shoot; local destinations preferred).
Or, for the recently engaged, all WEDDING COMMISIONS through the month of January are 10% off. Maybe this makes it possible to have a professional photographer at your wedding. Or maybe it frees up some of the budget to get a wedding album. Whatever the case, I hope this will create a new possibility for you.
Whatever package you choose, take this as a gift from me to you! But remember to act quickly, as orders are only taken through the 22nd of December. Merry Christmas!
Married on one of the prettiest fall days, Juliette and Andy came together and shared vows. Heartfelt and sweet vows. There are so many parts of a wedding day that I love and certainly way up there if not the top is the time of promises. Chaz Zezulka always brings a lovely and inspirational message and we all joined together in celebrating the coming together of Mr. and Mrs. Parker! A big thank you for the gorgeous flowers from Charlotte at Thames River Greenery and also to Jen with coordination and yummy morsels with Gourmet Galley.
Keith and Laura became family amongst the most dearest people on a lovely fall day with warm weather and yes – flip flops and a carousel! These gestures of ease and fun say a lot about them. They breathe in and breathe out loving and celebrating. It just comes naturally to them. Not so much being at the center of it all, but more so letting their friends and family being the center of their lives! Truly awesome! But much more than that, these two lovelies who let me into their awesome story of being married are part of my family. Cute flower girl – my niece! Thank you for having Amanda and I share in the FUN! We had a blast.
Beautiful fall weddings are something else! Rose and Mike, two dear and lovely people became family at the Litchfield Country Club on one of these gorgeous days. What a day! What a party!
Thank you so much for having Steve and I there to capture such love and beauty. More to come soon with all the fun fall tent decor !!! Stunning!
