As we clamber back on top of the great big pile of work we call our “to-do list”, we want to acknowledge a drought of blog posts and state of incommunicado during the storms that have hit the East Coast. While losing power for a week was a setback, it was nothing compared to what some of our couples, and so many people living on the shores of NJ, NY and New England faced. Our thoughts and prayers went with them and continue to do so, and we are grateful for our health and well being when others did not fare so well.
With that being said, we are pretty excited to be back in the swing of things and to share the first of what are many, many blog posts to come in the near future! We have so many great sessions, events and weddings to share, and we happily start with Trista & Brian’s wedding at the Inn at Longshore in Westport, CT. We absolutely adore these two. Love, love, love them! Not only for their sweetness and humor, but also for their creativity and terrific fashion sense. It just doesn’t get better than having the pleasure of photographing two people made for each other who are as easy to be around as they are to photograph. And there was lots to photograph!
Trista’s drop dead gorgeous gown by Enzoani framed her perfectly, accompanied by her beautiful flowers from Just for you Floral Design. We would be remiss if we didn’t mention the always flawless work of Dana Bartone & Company that made sure Trista looked as gorgeous the minute she got out of the make-up chair as she did during the last dance of the night. We even managed to sneak in a “whiskey!” or two during the day (much to our delight), and it all happened at one of our favorite venues for a wedding. All in all, just perfect .
