CT Photographer ~ Taylor Brooke Winery {Woodstock, CT}

I love taking trips to “The Quiet Corner” of Connecticut as it is know.  On this day, my long time friend Sandy from Rhode Island and I decided to meet in Woodstock to attend the “Artists in the Country Juried Art Show” and explore other happenings in the area. One of our must have visits […]

Thank you so much for capturing the “essence” of Taylor Brooke Winery! So glad your visit coincided with one of our harvest days…always a great experience for any of our visitors. Dick & I hope you will visit us soon (, but be sure to come when you are ready to taste our delicious wines!

Great pictures (of course!) and I love how you captured the entire process, from harvesting to processing to bottling to packaging to TASTING!!! (my favorite part!)

I know CT has the Wine Trail; I’ve been to a few but I’d love to be able to stop at each one …maybe next year that’ll be my mission! I like the cranberry Riesling … I wonder how it tastes!

Wonderful photos…looks like a place I would love to visit!

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…

CT Engagement Photographer ~ Matt and Sarah {Ellington, CT}

A happy engaged couple on an October afternoon with soft perfect lighting….that’s just what we had.  Matt is the nephew of a very good friend of mine so when she asked if I would do a small engagement session for them I was delighted.  It’s obvious Matt and Sarah are very much in love with […]

These are gorgeous Catherine! Love the location and my favorite is the groom dipping his fiance in front of those gorgeous doors. Love it. I really like the ring in the word “forever.” Clever idea!

Jen Schulten - October 27, 2013 - 8:52 pm

Catherine, these look great. They look really happy together and you did a really nice job capturing it. Nice!

Pretty pictures with the nice backgrounds of the wrought iron and beautiful doors. Great job!!!

Ed Daley - October 27, 2013 - 9:22 pm

Clever the way you used the engagement ring to spell out forever. I also liked the shoots with the champagne glasses and the romantic kisses. Was this shot in front of a church? You captured some sweet tender moments.

Sandra Collins - October 27, 2013 - 9:33 pm

Fun, sweet, stunning images Catherine…just love your fun ideas..they shine through in your images.

Irela - October 28, 2013 - 7:13 am

What great memories for this beautiful couple. You captured their love perfectly because these totally portray love. Setting is perfect, couple is perfect, these images are wonderful. They must be thrilled with these. Good luck to Matt and Sarah on your engagement.

Cathy Testa - October 28, 2013 - 9:23 am

Love the photos with the rings and fall leaves, and little words spelling out forever. You are so very creative with your photo shoot and this couple is looking like they are so in love in every shot! Love your work Catherine.

Arelis Cintron - October 28, 2013 - 2:01 pm

They are a beautiful couple! May they have a beautiful life together!

Renee - October 28, 2013 - 3:12 pm

These photos are beautiful. especially loved the creative touch of the Scrabble letters with the engagement ring as the ‘o’. The bride-to-be being dipped in front of the gorgeous door and archway was lovely!

Carrie @ poet in the pantry - October 28, 2013 - 7:11 pm

Love the dip! Beautiful couple and such lovely photos!

Bonnie - October 28, 2013 - 10:06 pm

Aww, they look so happy! I love the close-up of their hands, and the ring with the leaves.

CT Family Photographer ~ Mullin Family Sneak Peak {Ellington, CT}

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.
