Hartford City Hall Wedding Glam Styled Shoot

We had a great time collaborating with an amazing team of wedding professionals on the Hartford City Hall Wedding Glam styled photo shoot last month. The shoot was conceived by the super talented Namoi Martinez of Naomi’s Studio & Salon and was brought to life with beautiful styling and design by Erica Powell of Ambiance Luxe & Reverie Gallery. Our gorgeous bride and groom were Miss USA 2013 Erin Brady Capasso and Tony Capasso. Erin and Tony are newlyweds and were the perfect models for this glamorous shoot.

Naomi’s Studio & Salon created two gorgeous looks with Erin’s hair and makeup.  The first look was elegant and sophisticated…

 

The beautiful bridal styling, gowns & accessories were by Mariella Creations.  We loved the intricate back on this gown by Allure Bridal. Tony looked handsome in a tux from Formals By Antonio…

 

The furniture rentals for the set were from General Eclectic including the high back love seat, ottoman, books and a wolf pelt…

 

Admire Design created the romantic invitation inspired by the colors and interior of Hartford City Hall…

 

Naomi’s Studio & Salon brought up the glam for Erin’s second look…

The Lincoln Bar topped with real pennies from General Eclectic was a unique touch…

 

Just for You Floral Design Studio created the gorgeous florals with a beautiful mix of peonies and roses…

 

Hartford City Hall’s majestic architecture, domed skylights and winding staircase provided the perfect backdrop for the shoot…

Deanna + Steven’s Wedding – Aria – Prospect, CT

A beautiful couple, a gorgeous venue and a perfect day…it was the kind of wedding that photographers dream of.  We had been looking forward to Deanna and Steven’s wedding since the day we first met them.  They are an amazing couple and we knew the day would be just as special as they are.   After preparing separately with their bridesmaids and groomsmen in the morning, Deanna and Steven met at Booth Park for an emotional first glance.  We took advantage of the location to take portraits of the couple and bridal party before heading to St Marks Church where they exchanged their heartfelt vows.  Following the ceremony, it was on to Aria in Prospect for a gorgeous and fun filled reception. Congratulations Deanna and Steven…thank you for letting us be part of your special day!
