This couple had the absolutely perfect day for an outdoor summer wedding -- not too hot, no rain, perhaps the best day of the summer to have an outdoor wedding (at the Water's Edge in Branford). Krista and Pasquale were fun to photograph, they mainly wanted candid images, captured using our photojournalistic style, mixed with a tad of classical portraiture in order to record their families in a maner that is timeless, artistic and unique.
Their ceremony, in English and in Italian, was right on the water at the Water's Edge. Wow!
Krista and Pasquale wanted a lot of candid images, making it easy to photograph them. Their reception was full of laughs, smiles and fun!
Malek and Shakira -- what a wedding! It was very customized, had a LOT of "them" in it, had a lot of traditions in it. They had African drummers during the ceremony, what can I say, be still my heart, Wow!
Shakira was standing in front of the mirror in her parents bedroom and I asked her to look down for a second and captured this...wow!
What an amazing ceremony, what an amazing couple! We always feel honored to be rpesent when two people in love say their vows, but this ceremony was especially touching, steeped with tradition and emotion! The attention to detail was everywhere and the processional started at 3:59 for her 4:00 ceremony
The beautiful flowers were done by
Maria Pedreira of Rosa's Florist

The sound of the drums was...
Malek's vows were every woman's dream, so much so that when he was finished Rev. Dr. Anthony Bennett proclaimed that if Shakira didn't want him that he would marry him!
As you know...I just love Black and white and color...
These two images were amongst Tom's favorites from the day. His wonderful 70-200mm f 2.8 lens just threw the background softly out of focus and allowed the happiness of Shakira and Malek to shine through!
We had a lot of time at the Waterview outside on their patio which enabled us to capture a plethora of images of the wedding party, family, and of just the two of them.
We had so many favorites of this couple, here are just a few...
The people in the wedding party were a lot of fun
What a fun group!
Their cake was beautiful and its colors called to me to create some more black and white and color photographs.
Their reception at the Waterview was wonderful, attention to detail evident everywhere. And I loved that each table had a framed photograph, I am hoping to use some of these in their wedding album as backgrounds.
OK, I love, love, love this last image!
The tree of love growing right of their heads, which are making a heart shape.
This photograph captures their intense love for each other.
Martini is the most adorable dog! I have always preferred larger dogs myself, but this dog was an exception. I could have brought him home in a heartbeat! He was sooo adorable, sooo snugable and so well behaved!
