Jenn & Cliff’s Aria wedding was luxurious and timeless…and insanely amazing. It was “beauty, with an edge.”  Their wedding day had it all; a private photo session with an elegant horse and stables, under the most dramatic blue New England sky, and one very unique backdrop… the abandoned Fairfield Hills Insane Aslylum. I was thrilled to walk the grounds and capture some drama at the abandoned buildings… they had
character…..bold, different, edgy and hip.

Jen and Cliff celebrated their wedding day with family and friends at beautiful Aria, in Prospect CT.  A romantic beginning for a couple sure to celebrate many more perfect days ahead.

Congrats and Enjoy!

This New England Barn wedding was the perfect blend of classic elegance with a modern twist of luxury and hip fashion. Becks’ amazing dress was a show stopper with classic beauty and fabulous feathers! Brian’s custom embroidered tuxedo was awesome, and with the coolest hipster shoes, the men looked killer! The day was a fantastic mixture of modern romance, hip fashion and fun!  This Barns at Wesleyan Hills wedding was as chic and timeless as it was dramatic and elegant.

Enjoy the pics below, for some favorite moments of ours… From the nervous “first look” of Beck in her dress, to the ring bearer boys walking down the isle…. crying.

It was a blast and an honor to be asked to photograph Kristen Taekman (Of Real Housewives of NYC fame), at The John Casablanca’s Modeling agency last week.  Kristen is absolutely stunning and charming and funny and sweet. The event was a blast, with gorgeous styling by CT’s premier event planner Paramount Wedding Designs.  Cool details such as vases of fresh green apples complimented the sweetness of NoRA gourmet cupcakes which were a huge hit.  Dj Kenny Q and Kenedi had the crowds dancing and grooving’.  Enjoy,  and special thanks to all involved!

This wedding had it ALL!  Amazing looks, hot shoes, tough guys and red hot fashion girls!

The bridal party ladies were on fire… with custom robes for hair and makeup.  The Residence Inn Downtown Marriott set the scene for the pre-ceremony “getting ready” shots, and WOW that hotel has newly remodeled rooms which scream for photos! A perfect backdrop for some modern photography.

The guys were cooler than ice, in their formal tuxedos, and they brought their energy to the coolest photos! The tough guy attitude was at maximum overload! Love that shot of them with the teal wall!

Cheri & Jacob had an emotional “first look” at Hartford City Hall, and then it was time for the guys to run past in an epic motion capture shot!  Tender moments were shared in the awe inspiring stairwell of the classic architecture of one of Hartfords coolest buildings.

Soon it was time for a suave and sophisticated ceremony at The Society Room of Hartford, where purple uplighting complimented gold ceilings.

Consider this a “Teaser Blog” with more to come in the weeks ahead!

Congrats again to Cheri and Jacob!

Cheers:

OMG Angelina Jolie will be starring in a new Disney Movie this summer! She will portray one of my all time FAVORITE characters…Sleeping Beauty’s arch nemesis “Maleficent.”   For those of us not obsessed with Disney; Maleficent is the witch with who casts the sleeping spell on the princess.  Trish and I were inspired by the story and the dramatic looks, and we hatched our concept: “Maleficent deconstructed”… not a virtual copy (too easy) but rather a re-imaging of the edgy modern queen on her wedding day!

We soon set out to create some visually dramatic,  modern fashion images, with the “Maleficent deconstructed” concept in mind.  We were joined by some of the most creative professionals in the wedding industry to create the final images, so sit back and enjoy this very different, dark world of Maleficent’s wedding, photographed at The Hartford Society Room, and Pratt street; Hartford.

“Like and follow”… and Check us out at the upcoming FUSION UNION; “not your mothers” Bridal Show March 22, 2014 at the New Britain Museum of American Art!

Last week was amazing, and we were honored to photograph comedian Lisa Lampanelli (The “Queen of Mean”…who is really super sweet).

It was an honor once again to be the official photographer and listen to the speakers, and capture the emotions throughout the event. Lisa Lampanelli was coming to dedicate a plaque, in honor of the exclusive partnership between Bristol Hospital and The WLSFA (Weight Loss Surgery Foundation of America).

When Lisa arrived she quietly entered the back of the room almost undetected. Her small petite frame is still filled with witt & banter that only “America’s Bad Girl Comedian” can deliver.  All in attendance listened as she spoke from the heart, and laughed at the jokes she told…as only she can.

Thanks for the laughs Lisa!
Airen and Trish Miller
