Kevin and Michelle

It's always interesting how our Clients find us since we don't do any advertising. Kevin and Michelle came to us since Kevin sold us our new Infiniti G35x. What a great couple they are! So relaxed with each other and very playful! We took some engagement portraits the week before the wedding. And for a Bride who was so concerned about the weather on her wedding day, they had the most gorgeous day (and sunset!) on the beach on the north shore of Long Island. Thanks Kevin and Michelle for being so much fun!

Jeffrey Gaines

"You can sing for millions of people in your career; or maybe just one. You can sell millions of records, or none at all. You can win awards, or never win a damn thing; it doesn't really matter. If you play music with passion and love and honesty, then it will nourish your soul, heal your wounds, make your life worth living. You will have made a difference." These words written by Jeffrey Gaines are in his album jacket "Jeffrey Gaines Live". And I have to say it is very rare to see a performer with such intense passion for his music and for his fans.
After a long weekend of shooting, we hurried out to the Green in Danbury to catch Jeffrey wrapping up the Hat City Music Festival. He had the ability to make you feel as though you were the only one there to see him play. From on stage it seemed as though he made a personal connection with each of his fans. And after his show, he greeted everyone and signed autographs. He even was so kind as to talk to one of our good friends (who is a HUGE Jeffrey Gaines fan) on Steve's cell phone! What a down to earth, kind hearted & talented performer. He signed a CD for Olivia and wrote "Olivia, Make your life extraordinary". I'd say that's the best advice I've heard in a long time. Thanks Jeffrey!

Portugal Favorites

Here are just a few of my favorite photographs from our trip to Portugal. We were lucky enough to take a few days before Tom and Olga's wedding to visit Lisbon and Sintra. But most of my favorites are of our little peanut, Olivia and my amazing husband, Steve.

Wedding In Portugal

We were very humbled when Tom and Olga hired us to photograph their wedding in Portugal a few weeks ago. We knew it was going to be a beautiful weekend but never could we have imagined what was in store for us. Our base city was Porto, in the northern part of Portugal (famous for Port wine). Their festivities started on Friday evening with a welcome dinner for all to attend. Saturday was filled with a trip to Fatima. And the wedding took place on Sunday in a beautiful church built in the 1600's with a reception at Quinta Ferreirinha next door. The party included lots and lots of food, waiters who played trumpets as they brought out each course, a mexican hat dance, and fireworks as Tom and Olga cut their cake. Just when you thought the party was over, the grills started up to cook up some late night snacks. Sausage flambe was among my favorite! We were so excited to be a part of this special trip. Here's a link to the slide show we put together for them. Thank you Tom and Olga...God Bless You!

Engagement Session

I recently had the pleasure of photographing an engagement session for such an awesome couple. Mark and Cheryl were attendants in a wedding I photographed almost 3 years ago and now it's their turn to get married! I am so honored that they want me to shoot their wedding coming up in August. We met up in Greenwich on their 8th anniversary to get these shots. It's so nice to work with a couple who is so much in love. Can't wait for the big day!
