Best Photobomb Ever!

My favorite part of weddings (aside from the dress and decor) is the antics from the friends and family.  On September 12, 2015 the Garthwait family did not disappoint!  Usually I expect a pet, a random object, or "the comedian" in the family to interrupt the "serious" photos after the wedding, but in this case it was the groom.  In fact, he (the groom) was suppose to be in this shot but was socializing elsewhere until he heard the shouts to come and join...and this was the result.  All must be forgiven since, well he is the groom!  Congratulations to Jeannie and Stephen Garthwait!

Cross Country 2015! I'm back!  I had a great trip to and from the east coast to the west coast!  This was my little chipmunk friend that couldn't stop laughing at me apparently!  For more photos of my trip check out my "Most Recent" gallery.  I will continue to post new photos there over the next few weeks as I sift through the hundreds I took.  Enjoy!

Baby Tristan, Coming Soon!

It's not every day I get to capture a mom to be that's due any minute!  Arieanna and Trevor were so much fun to work with.  Baby Tristan has two incredible parents that are eagerly awaiting his arrival.  Dad even saved his cowboy boots from his childhood for his son.  Love love love!

Introducing Mr. & Mrs. Wasick!
The weather was perfect, not too hot, not too cold!  The trees at Gillette State Castle park just started to bloom so we had a lot of really rich colors that enhanced the energy all around this beautiful ceremony.  I'm thrilled to be able to congratulate Mr. & Mrs. Rich Wasick and wish them the best on their new journey together as husband and wife.

Mom & Son
After 93 years Grandma is still kicking butt at cards.  I love working with families because you can read their relationship(s) in every photo.  The emotional range is so broad: love, pride, respect, and of course humor.

Nova Scotia Colours!

Every time I travel somewhere I always seem to be a few weeks too early or too late to enjoy the "magic" advertised for that location.  Not this time!!  Nova Scotia was incredible!  Incredibly nice people, fantastic music (Celtic Colours International Festival), lots of nature to take in, and whoa colours!!!  The travel books don't lie, you have to go and see this!

Henry and K.K. McLane Society Leadership Reception

Named for the first donors to Our Companions, the Henry and K.K. McLane Society celebrates the critical role that leadership supporters play in helping to fulfill the mission of doing the right thing for animals regardless of the challenge or the cost.  It was a celebratory evening, with lots of laughs, a few tears of joy, and great hosts (Linda & Mark Hatten plus four legged stars Archie and Annie!)

"Go Eve!"

I was thrilled to be able to shoot promotional photos for Eve as she prepares to compete for the Mrs. Connecticut America title this coming March at Foxwoods.  Gorgeous, intelligent, and a great representative for the married women in the state of Connecticut.  Help me send the good vibes out her way so she can bring home the crown!

"Una boda en Ecuador con mi familia" (26 Octubre, 2013)  

What an awesome experience and opportunity I had in taking part in my cousin's wedding in San Rafael, Ecuador over the weekend.  I've been traveling to Ecuador for decades but this was my first wedding down there!  South Americans love color so it was completely appropriate that a rainbow of balloons came out for the second portion of the festivities that night.  In the U.S.A. we book our venues for a certain period of time and then the party is over.  In Ecuador you book your venue and only when the last person is dragged out of the hall by family members, is the party actually over!  And yes that did happen.
