The Riverview, Simsbury CT / Wedding / Drew & Stefanie

This is a story about life long friends who over time found their true soulmate in each other. Surrounded by a multitude of many high school friends and family this young couple exchanged vows and rings at a truly elegant and beautiful location.  This wedding held a soft spot in my heart as they grew up in Wilbraham and went to the local high school. It was wonderful to see so many friends and acquaintances on this special day.  I wish you both many, many years of wedded bliss and as always…..sprinkled with a little fairy dust and a dash magic! Congratulations!


Castle of the Knights, Chicopee / Wedding / Derrek & Alyssa

As I was thinking about how to write this blog I began looking for quotes on love and patience.  Alyssa explained to me that she and Derrek had been engaged for quite sometime.  It seems that the mantra for the wedding day was “Finally”.  I found this little quote which I thought was extremely appropriate and lovely.

“The beauty of marriage is not always seen from the very beginning…but rather as love grows and develops over time.” —Fawn Weaver

Congratulations Mr & Mrs Santucci…..FINALLY:)

Fountain Park, Wilbraham / Wedding / Brian & Jadig

Brian and Jadig got married in a fashion that was both very private and intimate. Surrounded by immediate family and officiated by Brian’s grandfather they said “I Do” in the red barn in Fountain Park. The barn is presently under construction and looks to be a fabulous venue location once it is completed. Both the bride and I fell in love with the rustic charm and unfinished walls while under construction. We couldn’t have asked for a more charming location for this sweet wedding. Many wishes to this young couple as they start their new life together.IMG_0048B2015-03-16_0002IMG_00292015-03-16_0006IMG_0116-2IMG_00362015-03-16_00032015-03-16_00042015-03-16_0005IMG_00522015-03-16_0013IMG_0083IMG_00722015-03-16_0015IMG_01912015-03-16_0007IMG_0123B2015-03-16_0009IMG_0210IMG_01562015-03-16_0010IMG_0152IMG_0134IMG_01432015-03-16_0008IMG_01842015-03-16_0011IMG_0199IMG_0190IMG_0245IMG_0261IMG_0267IMG_0276IMG_0280IMG_0278

Simsbury, CT / Hop Meadow Country Club / Wedding Joanna & Ivan

Welcome to Joanna & Ivan’s wedding blog. It is with great pleasure that I am able to write this blog so quickly after their wedding.  I began as a film and slide photographer in the early years of my career which affords me the luxury of “getting it right in the camera”.  My editing is already complete without spending countless hours in front of the computer.  Phew, I would much rather be behind my camera working with my next client than in my office looking at a monitor.  So, our story begins…. It was a beautiful day this past Saturday for a wedding. It was not too warm or humid which is a rare luxury for July in New England. The bride was beautiful and the groom so dashing. Their wedding sermon focused on love and respect for which this couple are truly a role model. The love and friendship they displayed towards their friends and family was evident in the images taken that day. I feel so very blessed to have been a small part of their spectacular day. Enjoy their love story and fairy tale wedding.
