Wedding Photography at Lighthouse Point Park in New Haven, CT | Leah & Brian

There are too many favorites from Leah and Brian’s wedding at Lighthouse Point Park in New Haven, CT, I have to just roll with chronological order…I couldn’t quite figure out how to put them ALL at the top of the post.

But I did choose the next 2 images to start with for a reason. Why, you ask?
Well would you believe me if I told you that they were taken within 5 minutes of each other, at the exact same location?!
Ah…that dynamic power of that FLASH photography that we just love – some may say we are obsessed. I’m not offended AT ALL.

Eric shot Leah getting ready at her parent’s home in Milford, CT, while I covered the guys at the hotel. The prettiest pink Badgley Mischka shoes.

Now I don’t want to make any weather predictions this early in the wedding season, but so far we have had rain at more than half of the weddings we have photographed, which…is what it is. I love this shot of Leah still smiling, despite the record low temperatures and rain forecasted for her whole day.

I arrived just in time to help tie Leah’s awesome bow, I have a little OCD control freak in me that takes over when it comes to a perfect bridal bow…weird I admit.

While it rained, we had lots of fun shooting indoors on the carousel at Lighthouse Point Park.

When the rain subsided we could not resist a night shot outside with the moon peeking through the clouds.

Wedding Photography at The Matrix in Danbury, CT | Greg & Christina

Greg and Christina’s wedding was the first time we got to shoot a wedding at The Matrix, and we are always thrilled for a fresh, new location to explore. We both grew up in the Danbury area, and currently live just a hop skip and a jump away in New Milford. So needless to say we are super pumped to have a new venue pop up in our backyard that utilizes the former Union Carbide building.

Here’s a little geek-out info for any fellow photo nerds out there. I’m trying really hard this year to not always do the same-old dress shot in the window thing that we all do each and every week so of course I freaked out when I saw this gorgeous light spilling into the hallway from the adjacent bathroom. So I rigged the dress to hang from the attic pull-down, went to the end of the hallway, composed my shot and…. LET-DOWN! Totally didn’t expect the light to not reach the top section of the dress. Since it took me at least 10 minutes to rig the dress to the attic hatch, I couldn’t give up on it.

The light source from the bathroom was coming through a skylight, bouncing off all the white tile and spilling into the hallway. But the top frame to the bathroom door blocked all that yumminess from reaching the top half of the dress. So, in true Eric style I got busted out my gaff tape and got creative with a silver reflector and toiletry drawers. Bam! Was able to bounce that light past the door frame and up into the hallway to the rest of the dress.

I know, I know…”it’s just a dress shot” you say to yourself but hey, it’s pretty cool when you put the extra effort in to try something just a little different from the usual monotony of a dress shot. The one on the left was before I set-up the reflector and the shot on the right is obviously my professional grip set-up..haha. The bottom shot is the final result.

Very cute first look, at Greg & Christina’s home in Bethel, CT, where Christina also got ready. Love her hair and makeup done by Rena of Dana Bartone.

A gust of wind came at the right time during portraits to blow some loose magnolia petals into the shot, and it looked so pretty, Eric recruited the bridal party to shake some more from the tree while he shot for such a pretty, romantic Spring portrait.

The Matrix is not like any venue we’ve ever seen. The architecture is unique. Modern. Lots of glass. Lots of light pouring through the skylights. Loving the metal gridwork and clean lines.

After reviewing the reception photos, I can’t help but to interpret the space as the quintessential venue for a Saturday Night Fever themed wedding. And I mean that in the most genuine, best idea ever, way.
