Meg + Jackie’s NYC Engagement Session

by on Feb.07, 2014, under Wedding & Engagement

Hey guys,

Today I have something really really cool for you  ***drum roll here ***:  Meg + Jackie!

They are among those rare and super sweet people you can chat about almost anything with, and it’s s truly amazing how easy and enjoyable the conversation is.  We met in December and immediately hit it off, on so many levels. Music, travel, cars(!), houses, wine, decoration, family, schools….. you name it, it goes on and on. I can’t tell you how happy I am for them, and our new friendship.

Meg and Jackie wanted  to have their engagement session somewhere else. Some place that would stand out in their pictures. We brainstormed about it and came up with a few ideas. West Hartford…? Boston…? New York City…? New York City! Definitely. Decision. Made.

I have to admit, I don’t photograph same sex couples every time, but it was so incredibly easy to photograph these two – I had not one, but TWO hot girls in love, who came out with me, had a ton of fun, and let me capture the beauty of their relationship in the most open and sincere way. We went to Grand Central Station, Times Square, Brooklyn Bridge – all of them NYC landmarks and must have locations – and look at what we got. I am so stoked with the results! Enjoy.

BIG hugs guys, I am even more excited for the wedding! Can’t wait!

Kayla & Nick’s Winter Wedding at the Waterview – Monroe, CT

by on Jan.13, 2014, under Wedding & Engagement

Few things are more exciting than a wedding around Christmas. This one was no exception.

Everyone around Kayla and Nick was so happy and emotional. Throw in a gorgeous church and a beautiful venue, and you got the formula for the perfect wedding.

We started off at the hotel where Kayla and the girls were getting ready – and captured some truly priceless moments there. The church had its Christmas decoration – with splashes of white red and green everywhere. You’d look around and you’d find something interesting in every corner. But to be honest, the ring bearer and the flower girl stole the show for me. They were soooo adorable, easily the cutest I have seen in quite a while. I took so many photos of them, but even that’s not enough!

Due to the low temperatures outside we took the majority of the photos inside the Waterview. The architecture of that place is quite remarkable, and lighting and photographing it was a ton of  fun. But none of that would have looked that good without Kayla and Nick, or happy couple. They were the main reason everybody was had such a great time, and I was so honored to be a part of their celebration.

My sincere congratulations guys, and CHEERS!

BIG hugs,

Nick & Kayla’s Engagement Session – Diana’s Pool, Chaplin CT

by on Nov.01, 2013, under Wedding & Engagement

Hola everyone,

Nick & Kayla!!!

Not too long ago they came to my studio to chat about their upcoming wedding in December, and we clicked right on the spot – what a sweeeeet couple! When we talked about  the e-session, they mentioned their puppy Jasmine, and I immediately said “Heck yeah, what a great idea!” They adopted Jas all the way from the Carribean, and oh boy, what a sweet puppy she is! So it just seemed the natural thing to start the session with a couple of sweet doggie kisses – and it could not have been a better start – Jas loves her humans soooo much!

For the main part of the session they were looking for an outdoorsy setting, and they really wanted to have the fall color as a primary element. We decided to go to Diana’s Pool in Chaplin CT and walk up the trail along the river. Some exposed tree roots, a maple leaf, tree bark, and a trusty mirror came in handy for that part. When the sun went down, Nick collected some leaves and built this heart with them on top of a rock. I had both of them go in the middle of the heart, then colorized everything with some applied flash magic and voila! Check out the goodies.

Guys, give Jas a big kiss from me. Mmmmmwah! Can’t wait for December! I am soooo excited for you!

BIG hugs,

- Your Pal Val

Leah & Ryan’s Engagement Session – The Berkshires, MA

by on Oct.22, 2013, under Wedding & Engagement

Heyyyy guys,

I’d like you to meet a very special couple I had the privilege to photograph recently. Leah & Ryan. Leah is so in love with Ryan – you can see this beautiful glow in her eyes every time she looks at him. And the way he holds her and talks to her – oh my!

We had a big discussion about the places to photograph this session – Leah and Ryan wanted to have the colors of the fall, but a bit more jazzed up. We decided to drive to Rte 2 in Mass and took the first couple of shots around one of the bridges over the Deerfield river. From that point we drove off to our main location –  Cascade Falls – and for some more variety stopped by a couple of more spots along the way.

Cascade Falls is a magical place I was super lucky to discover on a casual hike with my family four years ago. It is located in North Adams, MA, kind of hidden in the woods – even the locals don’t know much about it. Back then I snapped a couple of photos which I put on the blog over HERE. Wnen Leah & Ryan saw all those leaf swirls in the water, the decision about the shoot location was pretty straightforward. Fast forward two weeks, and here we are. We got the natural beauty of that waterfall, along with the happiness of two wonderful people in love. Could I ask for more? I absolutely LOOOOVE what came out of this session. Check ‘em out.

P.S.  By the way, Ryan is a fellow photographer, and I am SO honored he chose me for his wedding – this doesn’t happen to me every day.  Thank you so much my friend, and my sincere congratulations, can’t wait for the wedding!!! Super excited for you two!

BIG Hugs,
