Selfishly I’m going to talk about myself as a photographer for a minute! Working with a couple like Beth and Jason was a photographer’s dream. We started with an amazing engagement session at Harkness Park which really helped us get to know each other and get comfortable with the camera. They also did a first look (which I highly recommend!) and planned lots of time for bride and groom portraits. Beth was so considerate of my need to make amazing pictures, she even asked me which color of uplighting would photograph best! All this attention to detail made for a seamless, fun day, with once in a lifetime photographs that will make amazing heirlooms for generations to come!
Beth and Jason sat in my office about a year ago and I knew I wanted to work with this couple. You could see there was a connection that was built on mutual respect and love. During our short meeting, I could see Jason’s respect and love for Beth as he deferred to her on every wedding decision (smart man!) and Beth’s love for Jason as she gave him smiles that said everything to him. They are the kind of couple that knows what they have is special, and won’t take their love for granted. Whether it is an opening of a door or a sweet look from Beth, they are always showing their love. These are the kinds of things that amazing couples build their marriages on.
Their wedding day was perfection! It was the perfect Connecticut summer day with a warm breeze and blue skies. We started out at the Avon Old Farms Inn and celebrated their wedding at The Riverview in Avon. There is so much to think about on your wedding day, but Beth and Jason left much of that to their vendors (smart couple!) and soaked in their moments from the first look to the first dance, they were always present. This is a modern love story in that they met online, but is truly a classic love story, filled with chivalry, fun, and friends that fall in love. Congratulations to Beth and Jason! What an honor for me to capture your love story! Enjoy your honeymoon and all the chapters to follow. This is a marriage that will be for the books.
