We had no idea what we were in store for this past fall when Brian, Dominique and myself took a little drive into NYC for Lawren and Walter’s engagement session.  Having never met them before and corresponding mostly through email, we knew they were a great couple, but after meeting them in person we all were excited to spend a day with them and even more excited for their wedding (which is today!) Both Lawren and Walter are musical and apparently have neighbors who love their musical talents as well, so we started off in their apartment and outside their building.  We then ventured around the city making stops in random places and Long Island City to shoot back at the Manhattan skyline.  And we’re pretty sure it was the coldest and windiest day we all had experienced in awhile.   After a quick stop for a delicious and quaint lunch and a break from the cold, we then wrapped up at Cello Wine Bar, the location of their very first date.  It’s even better when you get special permission to photograph before they open too!

If we had this much fun at their engagement session, we can’t wait to see what today brings when you’re surround by your family and friends!

Yesterday a group of die hard Nick Fradiani fans were able to have an amazing unforgettable experience.  Connecticut native Nick Fradiani performed his first show since becoming the winner of American Idol just two weeks ago.  This intimate Acoustic Cafe was put together through 96.5 TIC.  Winners listened to him sing his new single, a couple of cover songs and an original song with Nick Abraham and Ryan Zipp, who are both members of their band Beach Avenue.  We can’t wait to see where this journey takes him!

Tonight as guests are getting ready to celebrate with Cara, the Bat Mitzvah girl, we wanted to share some of our favorite photos from Cara’s photoshoot a few months ago.  The theme for Cara’s celebration tonight is based around french bakeries and there was no better place in the area to go than La Petite France in West Hartford.  It also happens to be a favorite spot that Cara and her mom go to!

Macarons, croissants, baguettes, lattes (getting hungry yet?)…she even got to make a crepe!  And it’s banana nutella if your sweet tooth’s were wondering.  Congratulations Cara and we can’t wait to see you enjoy your evening surrounded by your friends and family!

Over the past few years we have been honored to photograph for NFA in Norwich, CT.  When taking photos for their view book, website, etc the school chooses a variety of students/volunteers who want to participate in photos and be a spokes-student for the school.  One of those wonderful students was Loriann.  Loriann was very involved in NFA and we were so excited when she contacted us to take her senior portraits.  Loriann loves to read so chose The Book Barn in Niantic.  If you’ve never been there you have to go!  It is one of the neatest places.  Loriann’s mom and brother came along so naturally we snuck them in a few photo.  And Loriann’s mom’s best friend has a daughter who is Loriann’s best friend so she came along too!
