When I first met Martine of This Modern Love Events over coffee two years ago, I had no idea where adventure would take us, or that she would become a dear friend! We have collaborated on styled shoots, hunted down wedding gowns together, and explored New Haven’s restaurants.
And now, she has relaunched her business with a brand new site highlighting her amazing talent for planning weddings and events. When she asked me to photograph her headshots for the site, we realized that Chamard Vineyards was an all-too-perfect location…and of course, we ended the day with lunch!
Ladies and gentlemen, the beautiful and talented: Martine!
Last Sunday I hosted my very first workshop over at Chetstone Studio in New Haven! It was small, but it was awesome. Leah Brasile-Koenig of Brasile Beauty provided hair and makeup for our gorgeous models, and Martine Boursiquot-LaConte of This Modern Love Events provided us with the gowns for the event. It was a day of fun had by all, and I hope we get to do it again soon! Until then, here are some favorites from the day!
Thanks so much to everyone who came out – and especially to our models!!
This month has been the busiest so far this year! I finished up a wedding from the beginning of the month, and jumped right into holiday sessions! And now, the babies are coming! I cannot wait to meet the newest additions to the N* and K* families within the next few weeks! Things are definitely in full swing, but that’s no deterrent!
Last weekend I had the opportunity to photograph an amazing event hosted by Homes with Hope at the Westport Country Playhouse, an incredible organization which provides safe and stable housing and supportive services for the homeless in Connecticut, giving them the opportunity to get back on their feet. They hosted the event in an effort to raise money and awareness with a live auction, and featured in the evening was a stellar performance by Saturday Night Live’s own Darrell Hammond! It was an incredible night, and the organization was able to raise the money needed to continue their great service to the people of Connecticut.
Here are a few images from the evening! Please take a moment to check out the Homes with Hope website and read about all the wonderful things they’re doing for our community!
