CT Photographer ~ Taylor Brooke Winery {Woodstock, CT}

    You’ve done an incredible job capturing the essence of the wine experience in your photos. Not many get to experience the process of wine through the harvesting, fermenting, bottling, and tasting of the finished product. And Dick & Linda are the best of people, oh yes, and let’s not forget their wines…ReplyCancel

Look at those smiles…what a happy bunch of kids!  They truly are and I had a wonderful opportunity to be with them while photographing the family last weekend.  I can’t wait to share more with you from this photo session at Snipset Lake…a beautiful place to photograph in the fall.
