Kamp Kyle Football Clinic- Kyle Arrington, Duron Harmon & Patrick Chung

Thursday, July 24, 2014

I had the extreme pleasure of getting to photograph New England Patriots' Kyle Arrington's Kamp Kyle which took place this past Saturday in Plainfield, CT. Kyle brought fellow Patriots' players Duron Harmon & Patrick Chung along to help out, as well as members from the CT Gamblers semi-pro team. Not only was it great to photograph some sports for a change, I just can't say enough about how awesome all of these guys were to hang out with. They really gave some helpful tips and authentically had fun playing with the kids. It was really refreshing, as the players truly had fun playing & teaching these kids. Here are some of my favorite photographs from the mini camp...I think you can get a pretty good feel for the fun and learning that was had by all involved.

Lisa & Mario - Farmington Gardens Wedding at Farmington Gardens

Wednesday, April 23, 2014

I was fortunate to photograph Lisa & Mario's wedding at Farmington Gardens, but by a weird twist of fate. Unfortunately their original photographer Craig Freeman was admitted to the hospital a couple of weeks before the wedding! I was so glad that I happened to be free that day and could step in and cover for him. This is why belonging to professional organizations such as CT Professional Photographers Assoc. is important for a professional wedding photographer. As much as we are all competitors, we are also peers and are always there for each other. Craig has since recovered, and as hey say...all's well that end's well! Now onto the wedding photographs!

Aldrich Mansion Wedding at Aldrich Mansion - Kate and James

Thursday, April 10, 2014

Kate and James Royal Wedding - An Aldrich Mansion wedding affair.


The Aldrich Mansion in Warwick, RI has to be one of my favorite locations to photograph a wedding. The old world feel, historic charm, and oceanfront location make it truly one of the elite wedding locations in RI. Whenever I photograph a wedding there, I feel transported back in time to the Gilded Age. I can't help but imagine the gala affairs that have taken place there over the century. The movie "Meet Joe Black" was also filmed there, which adds to the old Hollywood Glamour that the building already speaks of. "Kate and James" sounds regal..doesn't it? :)
For those who have not heard of the Aldrich Mansion, the mansion is situated on 75 acres on the cost of Narragansett Bay. As you will see by the photographs, ornate paintings and woodcarvings adorn the halls. Italian marble, was used for fireplaces, floors and bathrooms. The gilded vaulted ceilings in the entry/lobby make an immediate impression. There are 2 dining halls, as well as a music and fine arts chamber and library on the main floor.

Nautical Wedding at Essex Yacht Club-Wedding

Thursday, July 26, 2012

I am in love with these wedding images from Laura & Eric's wedding at the Essex Yacht Club in Essex, CT. Not only does the wedding have character to spare, Laura & Eric were so awesome and easy to photograph. In a word...fun! The interaction between them is really what make their wedding photography shine. Laura's beautiful smile and personality combined with their love for another are at the heart of the images. Brides and grooms...please take note. It's not me that makes the magic...it's you! Be in the moment on your wedding day. Enjoy each other and enjoy your day. It goes by quick..
