The Harding Allen Estate | Barre, Massachusetts | Laura & Brian's Harry Potter Themed Wedding | November 11, 2017

Laura and Brian chose the perfect venue for their Harry Potter Themed Wedding. As soon as you walked through the doors of The Harding Allen Estate you were immediately transported into Hogwarth's. No really. The music, the decor and the attention to detail that Laura and Brian put into each and every item truly encompassed their love for the famous Harry Potter novels and movies. 

In front of very close friends and family Laura and Brian vowed their love for each other in the Fountain Room located within the historic estate. I loved being part of such an intimate wedding filled with love and smiles. I loved getting to know Laura and Brian and their quiet and comforting love for each other. They have truly found love that you only find once in a lifetime. 

Thank you Laura and Brian for making my last wedding of the 2017 season so memorable. Enjoy some of my favorites!

Lawton Family Sugarhouse | Williamsburg, Massachusetts | Sabrina and Cory's Hillside Wedding | October 8, 2017

Sabrina and Cory's Wedding Day was something so special and dear to my heart! My husband and I have known both of them for as long as we have lived in this beautiful rolling hill town of Williamsburg, Massachusetts. The rain came to visit us on and off throughout the day but held off long enough for us to capture some beautiful views of our hometown.

It was such an honor to be a part of one of the sweetest celebration of love I have ever witnessed. Cory and Sabrina met while they were both serving as first responders. Cory, a firefighter, and Sabrina, a police officer. Oh yes....Red meets Blue and falls head over heels in love!! Cory is the kind of guy that would do anything for you and has the biggest heart and Sabrina is exactly the same. Her giving heart and ability to brighten your day with just her smile has to be why Cory is so smitten with her. 

Every single detail of this day could not have been more thoroughly orchestrated. The outpouring of collaboration and hill town love was so heartwarming. Relatives came from near and far to celebrate Sabrina and Cory's union of love. They were serenaded by Cory's grandfather "That's Amore" and I totally knew that there was moments like this that you just have to soak in and feel the incredible love that surrounded Sabrina and Cory's wedding day.  I wish I could say that I did not cry at this wedding BUT I literally broke down and had to recompose myself during the precessional.  When I saw the absolute emotion of Cory's face when he first set eyes on his beautiful Bride Sabrina walk down the aisle - I got so choked up. OMG....It was truly the most sweetest moment. THAT is TRUE LOVE! And why I love these two so much.

To add to the most memorable wedding this year we were given an incredible ending of amazing firework display hosted by Sabrina's father and his team of professionals. All of the hill towns celebrated with Cory and Sabrina that beautiful evening. I could write at least 10 more paragraphs but instead I want you to enjoy a little sneak into my favorites of Cory and Sabrina's Wedding Day! Enjoy!

The Phelps-Hatheway House and Garden | Suffield, Connecticut | Hannah & Sinjin's Intimate Wedding Celebration | October 7, 2017

I want to start by saying that I love old historic homes. Growing up in Connecticut myself I lived in a lot of them across the state. When Hannah and Sinjin told me that their venue was being held at The Phelps-Hatheway House and Garden in Suffield, Connecticut I knew I was in for a treat. The charm, the history and the beautiful gardens created another favorite of my many weddings this year!

The intimacy and love was so apparent throughout Hannah and Sinjin's wedding day. Especially with the elegant details of their venue setting inside the historic home's barn. You seriously felt like you were stepping back in time. I have to really give kudos to my couple lately....Do it yourself weddings are no joke and the amount of blood, sweat and tears that went into the curation was so present. 

Hannah and Sinjin did not opt for a First Look for their ceremony so the excitement to see each other for the first time was so special. I love how much they laughed together. Truly the best advice I can give my couples...Keep laughing....How they met in high school in "Chorus". How they have waited for this moment and made it their own.....and more importantly how they seem to complete each other and have the sweetest true love!

Thank you Hannah and Sinjin for sharing your beautiful wedding day with me. Enjoy a few of my favorites.

The Warfield House Inn | Charlemont, Massachusetts | Ashley & Mike's Wedding Celebration | September 16, 2017

One thing I can say about Mike and Ashley's wedding day is that I felt like I was part of the FAMILY. I have known Ashley and her family for over 5 years so I guess you could say I am FAMILY.  I loved being a part of such a beautiful and happy day. 

The Warfield House Inn is a gorgeous venue nestled in the hills of Charlemont, Massachusetts. With the breathtaking views of Berkshire East Ski Area and the quaint farm setting it really complimented Ashley and Mike's personalities. When Ashley told me that her grandfather was bringing his 1934 Ford Sedan I knew we needed to incorporate it into the scenic landscape during their bridal portraits. 

So much work, love and patience went into Ashley and Mike's celebration. You could just see how much attention to keeping it simple but also classy went into their day. What an absolutely perfect day filled with Ashley's adorable laughter and smiles at Mike. I am so humbled and deeply honored to share a glimpse into their beautiful and sweet love. 

Happy Honeymoon to you both! Enjoy every minute of your married life! 

Lots of love,

Tiff

Valley View Farm | Haydenville, Massachusetts | Jess & Matt's Wedding Celebration | September 15, 2017

Oh where to begin with Jess and Matt's Wedding day celebration....Honestly I am trying to keep my happy and joyful emotions in tact as I write this blog. But I just can't stop swooning over their lovely day.  Jess and Matt celebrated their love on a beautiful farm located in my hometown in Haydenville, Massachusetts last Friday. The weather gave us beautiful skies and that Indian Summer we all love.  

When I first met Jess and Matt a few months ago at their Engagement Session I knew that we were going to be fast friends - not just a photographer and her clients.  They both have such giving hearts and incredible sweetness that I felt like I was one of their best friends. Also - I think what makes Jess and Matt so incredibly special is their love story. I am a total sucker for a beautiful story of how my couples fall in love and theirs is just so awesome. See they both meet over three years ago when they were attendants of their best friends's wedding day. Matt was a groomsmen and Jess a bridesmaid.  As I have gotten to know Jess and Matt - I just giggle when I hear the many versions of who made the first move. The sparks flew. History was made and true love was found!

So much attention to detail went into their wedding day (mostly done by Jess, Matt and their family and friends - DIY Awesomeness) and I loved every single part! Most of all I was absolutely thrilled that the one thing Jess wanted more than anything was to have photos with the gorgeous field of Sunflowers at Valley View Farm. I may have posted a little more than usual because I love them just as much as she does.  I will admit - I could have stayed in that field all day with her and Matt. AND I think their love for each other made the sunflowers even prettier! 

My heart and soul is so bursting with love for these two sweethearts and I am so thrilled to share a glimpse into their wedding day story. Jess and Matt you both have a love like no other and I am so lucky to be a part of your worlds.

Historical Congress Park | Saratoga Springs, NY | Emilie & Sal's Engagement Session | September 4, 2017

I am so incredibly lucky! The beautiful couples and gorgeous locations for engagement sessions lately have been so perfect. This particular session was so dear to my heart since I was born in Saratoga Springs and Congress Park is smack in the middle of this beautiful city! Emilie and Sal brought all of this beautiful dreamy sunshine too. 

As we explored the park I loved getting to know Emilie and Sal. Mostly I admired how Sal looked at Emilie with such sweet love. Seriously he adores her and my heart just melted throughout our session! In addition to them being just so adorable together - they are cat lovers so they immediately won me over. 

Congress Park has so much to offer but more importantly it has a carousel. If you know me....of course we had to make that carousel part of our session. Oh the smile on Sal's face....Just like a little kid. So it took little convincing. All he had to do was look at Emilie with that childish grin and she was game. You are never too OLD to ride a carousel. I highly suggest you do it at least once a year! Also, I will have to admit that I have never rode a carousel while taking photos. Little did I know how motion sickness can set in very quickly but I rallied through it. It was worth it and I will do ANYTHING to make my clients happy! Their smiles and laughter was priceless!

Emilie and Sal - I am over the top excited to be a part of your special day in May 2018! Thank you for being so amazing to photograph and I loved getting to know both of you better! Enjoy a few of my favorites!

P.S. Don't forget - work on that "dip and kiss" for the wedding day :)

Norwich Lake | Huntington, Massachusetts | Mike and Sami's Lakeside Engagement Session | August 22, 2017

I just love when I get to be a part of a really special and sentimental place with my couples. Sami and Mike both met at Norwich Lake one summer day when they were just teenagers. Be still my heart...Summer....Young Love...Its the best! I love hearing their Love Story and especially enjoyed being able to share their love for each other back where they met.

OH! How I am smiling from ear to ear from our adventures that beautiful summer evening. Sami and Mike have this kind of love that you makes you feel loved when you are around them. Seriously its so amazing. We started our session out on a very shaky dock just as the sun was starting to get that soft golden light. My favorite kind. I swear they were mostly laughing at me at this point because the wind was making the dock move and I had very little room to move around without falling in. Hey - anything to make my clients laugh.  What impressed me the most was that these two had their session all planned out. MIke's dad pulled up his boat for us to ride to the Rock in the Lake. This was such a fun idea but especially meaningful as Mike just finished his service with The Air Force over the last 4 years. We even had a beautiful sighting of a bald eagle...SOOO cool...Such an awesome honor to photograph them enjoying the summer sun and their sweet love on that rock.

We finished our session back at the rolling hills of beautiful Huntington. The views were just breathtaking and really was the perfect setting for the rest of Sami and Mike's Engagement Session. After a quick change of outfits  - we enjoyed the remaining streams of sunshine and the fantastic summer night. I especially enjoyed that Mike and Sami are huge New England Patriot fans. I always encourage my couples to wear what they feel comfortable in or that portrays who they are.

As twilight approached us - we wrapped up the session with Mike's Harley and his sweet love Sami. These two were not only full of adventure but embraced every creative moment I wanted to try. I am so excited to be a part of your love and journey Sami and Mike and I am counting the days till your wedding next year. Enjoy a few of my favorites!

Private Residence | Ellington, Connecticut | Leigh & Dan's Engagement Session | August 20, 2017

I remember meeting Leigh for the first time when she welcomed me to her and Dan's home to chat about wedding photography. She was so energetic, confident and sweet. I knew right away why Dan fell in love with her. They are truly the sweetest together and you will see what I mean in some of my favorites featured in this blog.

On a perfect summer afternoon Leigh and Dan invited me join them on Leigh's father's gorgeous and historical property settled in the farmland of Ellington, Connecticut. OH Gosh...Where to start with HOW MANY amazing features of this property we got to explore with each other. My creative mind was on OVERLOAD....and I had to keep pinching myself and taking big thankful breaths for having this wonderful opportunity with Leigh and Dan.

The summer sun, a classic chevy truck, the historic home and the collection of vintage neon signs developed so many beautiful moments documenting Leigh and Dan's sweet love. Their smiles and interactions with each other were so heartwarming. I wished the session would never end. Enjoy a preview of our summer sun filled afternoon. 

Leigh and Dan I cannot wait for your wedding next May. Thank you so much for being such a blast to work with.
