Jeremy & Shereese’s Wedding – Branford House @ UCONN Avery Point, CT

by on Sep.25, 2014, under Wedding & Engagement

Hey folks, your pal Val here,

I have a stunning outdoor wedding for you this week – with so much emotion and beautiful memories. And I want to say a BIG Congratulations to our happy newlyweds, Jeremy and Shereese! No matter how you’d look at it, it was absolutely gorgeous – from the venue choice to the dress, the accessories, the food, the decoration, down to the smallest detail. I had a blast photographing everything – and ultimately had a really hard time picking my favorites for the blog.

From my experience through the years though, I can tell you that what makes a really beautiful wedding is not any of the above. It’s the spirit – driven by the actual people – the bride, the groom, their families, guests and everybody else involved, directly or indirectly. And in that department we nailed it. BIG time. We had such fantastic newlyweds – with such wonderful families. And the vendor team was entirely in the AAA category – all great friends of mine, people I have worked with for years. The result – well, take a look yourself.

Jeremy and Reese, I am SO SO HAPPY for you guys, and I can’t wait to show you the rest of the pictures – they are ready and waiting for you.

Cheers, and BIG hugs,

Val

Kim & Derek’s Wedding – Gershon Fox Ballroom, Hartford CT

by on Aug.25, 2014, under Wedding & Engagement

Ladies and gentlemen,

Derek & Kim are now husband and wife! Yaaaaaay!

What a sweet couple! It was such a pleasure meeting with them and I had so much fun photographing their Big day at Gershon Fox Ballroom a few weeks ago.

We started shooting at the hotel room where Kim and the girls were getting ready. The fun moved on to Hartford City Hall where we took some of the formals. I have to say, out of the numerous weddings I have photographed, this one was so relaxing and everything seemed to flow so seamlessly from A to Z – and I have to give Kim HUGE credit for putting everything together so well – and she did it all by herself!

The highlight of the event was the beautifully decorated and lit Marquee – it was nothing short of stunning! How do you take a bad photo in a venue like this? When I was done, I walked out of the building with a big smile on my face, and something in my heart was telling me: “We ROCKED this wedding”!

Enjoy the eye candy,

And last, but definitely not least, I MUST say a BIG thank you to the ultra talented vendors I knew and worked with who made this event one of a kind. The suspects:

Flowers: Helena Willis – perfectprincessevents.com

Makeup: DD NIckel - ddnickel.com

Venue: Gershon Fox Ballroom - www.marquee-ct.com

DJ and out of this world lighting – Mike Tierney & team – audiomediasolutions.net

Congratulations Kim & Derek! LOVE you guys! Cheers!

See you around,

Your Pal Val

Christina & Lyle’s Wedding – Maneeley’s, South Windsor, CT

by on Jul.30, 2014, under Wedding & Engagement

Hey folks, Val here.

Today I have something really special for you – Christina and Lyle’s beautiful wedding. Going through the pictures and picking my faves was not an easy task  - the newlyweds have such wonderful families, and there were so many memorable moments we captured.

The entire day was such a glorious celebration – and you can tell how happy Christina and Lyle are with each other. The smiles on their faces never went away – from the moment I got to Lyle’s house all the way till I left Maneeley’s.

Christina is Greek, and we had an authentic Greek band playing live for us almost the entire night… what a treat!  Watching 100+ people dance together – and taking those photos – was an absolutely unbelievable experience.  Once again, the great staff at Maneeley’s rocked the entire event from A to Z. I LOVE working with those folks, every single one of them is super sweet and friendly. The icing on the cake, the one and only Mike Tierney from Audio Media Solutions, colored every nook of that huge room with magical shades of pink, purple, blue and orange lights  - and everything in between. This was one of a kind wedding – and I am so honored – and thankful – to be a part of it. My sincere congratulations guys!!!

Take a look:

OOOPPAAAaaaaaa :)

Shereese & Jeremy’s Hartford CT Engagement Session

by on Jun.02, 2014, under Wedding & Engagement

Hey gang,

I am super excited to show you the engagement session of another happy couple I recently photographed – Shereese and Jeremy!

Their story started in Hartford, where they  have so many sweet memories from, so it was a natural choice to make when we were chatting about this session.

We started shooting around the State Capitol, and went on to Downtown Hartford to jazz it up when the sun went down. Hartford looks absolutely stunning at dusk from the bridge above the Connecticut River, and we really wanted to capture that vibe in our photos.

Regardless of the backdrop though, what looks much more beautiful than anything else, is Shereese and Jeremy’s love – they way they talk to each other, they way they walk together, the glow in their faces when they are together. And to be honest, with a couple like them, things just flow by themselves – it was so natural and easy to photograph them. I could do that every day and be excited and looking forward to each session every single time.

Take a look at what we got.

BIG hugs from me, I can’t wait to show you more!!!
