Mike and Melissa Sottile at The Waterview


Mike and Melissa reached out to me to do their engagement shoot and wedding last year. We caught the very last autumn leaves left on the trees on an early morning. It was a fun shoot then, and it was awesome meeting these two, and becoming a part of their lives for forever. This wedding went straight to my heart. Watching Mike choke up during his vows, and Melissa’s joy and laughter throughout the ceremony. Sometimes you just know when you are a part of something special. And this was one of those special ones…

I want to say thank you Mike for his service. I remember during his best man’s speech, everyone hooted and hollered for Mike feeling blessed to have him safely home and a part of their lives. It was such a touching moment.  Thank you Mike for all you gave, and all you have done for our country!

Jono and Hayeons Wickham Park Wedding
I met Jono and Hayeon last year at Jonos Brothers wedding. Let me tell you, the Pilattis know how to throw and awesome wedding, and my second Pilatti wedding was no let down. Jono and Hayeon are an amazing couple, so amazing in fact they had 2 Weddings! One here at Wickham Park and a second with all of Nicks family flying around the world to join them! The most memorable moment for these two of their day was setting eyes on each other for the first time. With the scenic backdrop of Hartford behind Jono and the lovely gardens of Wickham Park behind Hayeon, I can't blame them! The rain held out just long enough for a perfect ceremony, and when ...
Jose and Ianina – A Wedding in Peru
Jose and Ianina are such a fun couple. Ianina is my mother in-laws boss, so anything other than perfect was not an option (well it never is, but this time even moreso!). Now I have hundreds of edited photos, seriously, narrowing it down to these was the hardest of any wedding so far. I have so many favorites! I might even post more, definitely going to make a separate post with their civil union and engagement shoot! We got 30 minutes in a park in Barranco, Peru to do their formals. The reception was about 1 hour away from the church, so squeezing a shoot in on the way meant limited time and limited options. Barranco is a beautiful area, but ...
The Wedding of Kyle and Cara
I was lucky enough to shoot the wedding of Kyle and Cara Kilroy. For those of you who don't know. Kyle has been my friend since I was all of 3 years old. This wedding was heartwarming and beautiful. When I watched Kyle shed some tears as his beautiful bride walked down the aisle, I had to do everything I could to stop myself from doing the same. Nothing makes me happier, than seeing one of my oldest friends this happy. When Kyle and Cara first approached me to shoot their wedding, I was hesitant, I was worried my feelings would get in the way, wanting nothing more than to share their special day with them. The more I thought about it, the mor ...
