Connecticut Garden Wedding

We beat the storm!! There was a lot of concern whether we would beat the weather. Hurricane Henri was on its way and it missed us by a day. Unfortunately my Sunday event wasn’t so lucky but I am told they will be rescheduling it soon.

Allison and Bobby were married during Covid-19 so they chose this past Saturday to have friends and family celebrate with them. The father and mother of the groom held the event at their beautiful home on the Westport, Fairfield border. The gardens were gorgeous and we chose to take the “posey” shots there. Friends and family wandered the grounds which included a pool and a barn that was converted into a lounge.

After a tiny misting, everyone entered a tent where the party continued. I used a variety of lenses for this shoot. My favorite portrait lens is an 85mm 1.8 fixed lens, I really enjoy how you can blur out the backgrounds with it.

what a great garden
mix of natural light with fill in flash
getting candid
love my 50mm 2.5 I can get pretty sneaky with it.
getting natural images and framing nicely.
getting passed and I will get it.
the grounds were so nice here is the barn window where the lounge was.
I am invisible when I photograph candids.
timed it perfectly with the dj’s light.
