Get to know all things about getting married in CT from Connecticut wedding photographers! There are so many fabulous CT wedding venues, from Thompson Manor to Guilford Yacht Club, Connecticut offers a wide variety of Connecticut wedding venues and wedding vendors. We're big fans of working in CT alongside so many incredible Connecticut wedding vendors like Virginia Gale of Resurge Beauty Bar, and Dewitt Planning.

Getting married in CT is a breeze — you don't need any serious letters after your name, but you do need an officiant and you don't need any witnesses, making it an easy state to elope in if that's your jam. If you're thinking of a CT elopement, some of our favorite spots to elope are in CT. 

As CT elopement photographers, we are big fans of just kicking it locally for your dream wedding. Sail away on a private charter for your ceremony at sea, and retreat back to the Whaler's Inn for water views in Mystic CT, or head into Litchfield CT for a perfect forest elopement in the rural countryside. If a more urban feel is your jam, check out the Hartford City Hall, one of our favorite spots for your special day!

When looking at CT wedding vendors, make sure to read some reviews! CT has tons of options for wedding vendors, so feel free to be a little picky if you have a bit of time before your wedding day. As part of your love story, your wedding day should be magical, and everything you've dreamed of.

When choosing CT wedding photographers or CT engagement photographers, you should look for business registration, licensing, insurance, and any organizational wedding photography memberships. This will tell you if a wedding vendor is a tried and true, or maybe someone not taking it all that seriously. All CT wedding venues do require insurance to operate as a professional photographer in CT.

Although we are not a husband and wife team, we are a very close, bonded team of professional wedding photographers, and videographers. All of us often work together, learning each of our own ticks, and ebbs and flows. We all know the standard to which we are to be photographing, supporting, and learning from one another. And while we're definitely a favorite for local weddings, we're also the perfect team for wedding destinations.

Choosing a wedding photographer in Connecticut comes down to a few things. You're going to want someone you can get along well with on your big day, that's certainly priority #1 in my mind. You can find tons of great quality wedding photographers, but can you find someone you can jam with for 12 hours on your wedding day and not want to strangle? 

From there, look at the quality of their work: have they photographed weddings similar to yours in style, location (golf course, country club, castle...), and needs? How are their indoor wedding photos? How are their outdoor photos? Ask to see full galleries from a few weddings before making a final decision.

Let's talk some of my favorite CT wedding venues:
Branford House
A beautiful estate in Southern CT, the Branford House is a picturesque step back in time.  The perfect place for a beautiful summer wedding, this venue does book up early.

Whaler's Inn
Although the Whaler's Inn doesn't host big weddings, it is a darn amazing spot in Mystic CT to have a rehearsal dinner, or small wedding.  Their hotel rooms are also too good not to talk about.

Glastonbury Boathouse
Looking for a nautical wedding venue? Don't look any further! Glastonbury Boathouse is the perfect spot for a nautical CT wedding.

Guilford Yacht Club
One of our favorite venues, it's like coming home every time we drive in. The best spot for a fully outdoor wedding on the CT coastline.  Bring your boat, and sail out on a private cruise before you say I do!

Saltwater Vineyard
If you're looking for a little California in CT, look no further. Get married amongst the grapes, and grab a bottle for your anniversary.

Tamarack Lodge
The perfect indie CT wedding venue for a non-traditional wedding, the Tamarack Lodge is a perfect little getaway CT wedding venue in Southeastern CT.  The CT wedding venue offers tons of environments and diversity to choose from for your ceremony and reception.

The Lace Factory
One of the best CT wedding venues, the Lace Factory is a beautiful warehouse wedding venue in the more central region of CT. Exposed brick, large open windows make this place easy to dress up or dress any way you like.

Hartford City Hall
One of our favorite locations for a CT elopement, the architecture lends itself to something out a movie.

Elizabeth Park, Hartford CT
 One of the prettiest places to get married in CT, the beautiful park has incredible flower gardens that bloom from late April well into September.

Harkness Memorial State Park
One of the best CT wedding venues, get married in the beautiful gardens of Harkness, while watching the sun set over the beach. A beautiful property with an estate for weddings, it's a venue you must tour!

Are you wedding planning in ct?

As a photographer based in New England, we love working with Connecticut couples to photograph their dream day.  Wedding photography isn't just about editing photos and delivering dream images, it's helping make the big day filled with joy.  It's supporting you on your special day to feel confident, and at ease while we take gorgeous wedding photos.
As a team of professional wedding photographers, we love to provide a more documentary approach to your love stories — capturing the essence and little things that make you you.  Creating fine arts quality work, you can have your love stories captured digitally or on film, and printed on heirloom and archive quality prints, and wedding albums.
With lots of experience at numerous CT wedding venues, we have the skills to photograph indoor or outdoor wedding, with challenging lighting, or darker rooms. We often arrive early to weddings to give us time to review the property and locations if we cannot location scout prior or aren't already familiar with the venue.  With team members who are Part 107 licensed, we have the capacity to operate drones in Connecticut for wedding photos/videos.
We bring back up cameras to weddings, shoot on multiple cards simultaneously, have multiple microphones used for video, and have a team backing up our folks to ensure your day and wedding content is protected, and goes off without a hitch.
With every package you do receive an engagement session for photo or video that allows you to get to know us, and see what your wedding photos or videos might look like.

Thank you! We will be in touch with you shortly!  Check out our blog while you wait.
