Tara & Dave

Okay so I know I have been slow on the blogging but I am trying real hard to catch up. I promise! So many weddings this past month but that is not an excuse shame on me! With the kitchen redo going on, my Mom turning 60 and trying to spend time getting the new website done I have lacked on the blogging. But now that Megan is working with me......MY NEW OFFICE MANAGER....things will be better!

So anyhow to the title of this blog. Tara & Dave got married June 3rd at the Branford House at Avery Point. I love it here! the view is spectacular and the house is so intimate. Not to mention the wood work in there is amazing!

The sky that day looked like it was going to rain but held off until later in the night. But it did not matter cause Tara had bought water boots and an umbrella so they could take photos outside either way!

And guess what....when it started raining Tara comes to me and says can we go out in the rain and they are my favorite photos!

I AM SO EXCITED! Rob and I are redoing the kitchen and the cabinets are finally here! I can't wait for them to be put in any quicker....but I will have to cause it wont be till tuesday . :(

Here are a couple of pics with it being in demo......the cabinets are the original from when the house was built in 1965. The house was Rob's Granparents house but he bought it about 3 years ago and now I get to redo it with him YIPEE! I love to redecorate!

Oh btw Rob's granfather passed away this's strange my granmother about 2 weeks ago and now his granfather. Whats next they say thing happen in threes?

Oh also we have been living like this for about a week or more cause we have been waiting for the cabinets to come in...CANT WAIT TILL TUESDAY! YEAH CABINETS!

Once everything is complete in another 2 weeks i will put up before and after photos!

I am off to a wedding have a great day!

You Did it Marla & Jared!

Last night Marla and Jared got MARRIED!

A couple of weeks ago we went down to the shore and did their engagements and we had so much fun! Marla was up for anything as long as she looked good! By the end of the shoot Jared was like...Hey That was Fun! So I knew when the wedding day came it would be a blast!

So the day had finally come and it looked like a beautiful day! Windy, cool and sunny! It was perfect! I was even more excited cause the reception was at the POND House in Elizabeth Park, West Hartford. This time of the year the rose garden is in full bloom and stunning.

Okay so I got off track this is how the day went...sunny awesome then about 4:15pm rain.....stopped at the end of the ceremony....did groups...went to elizabeth park sunny but raining right after bridal party photos....stopped then rained again! It was wacky.

But Marla and Jared were such good sports doing photos in the wet grass ,in the rain with an umbrella and without!

Thanks guys for being such good sports!

Oh BTW the reception rocked and everyone was dancing the night away!

Well here is one of my favorites..I do not do the dip very often but this was a perfect place and the perfect dip I have to say!
You guys ROCKED!

The reception was at the The Pavilion on Crystal Lake . It is such a beautiful view there of the lake and a cute spot for pictures.

Below are a few of my favorites and at the end is the slide show!

Jen & last its up!

MAY 18th is the big day which jen and kevin tied the knot. Itwas such a privilege for me to be able to photograph the wedding. I have know kevin since maybe junior high and to be a part of his special day it was awesome!

The day went off with out a hitch...despite the rain in the early part of the day and the misty rain when we went for photos everything else was spectacular. The reception was at Watersedge in Westbrook and Shark Entertainment did a faboulus job with the party music.

A big thanks to Krystal for coming along and helping capture the day girl you rock.

Below are a couple of favorites from the day!

These were taken at City Hall in Hartford..Love that place for indoor photos!

Well most of you have seen my website and it's time to say goodbye to it. The current site has been good to me for the past 2 years but now it's time for change. As Nikki Nicole Photography is growing so is the look and feel.

In the next couple of weeks I will be working on a new site and a new look. I will let everyone know closer to the launch of the site exactly when it will be. With this change the 2008 prices will be posted. So for all you 2008 brides that have been thinking of booking now is the time to still get 2007 prices!

Here's a sneek peek of an image that may be used on the new site! on of my fellow photographers took it for me at the PUG shootout! Thanks!

Portrait Time!

So in between all the weddings and engagements I have also ben doing family and children sessions. Below are my 4 fav form 2 different sessions.

Isn't he cute? He loves his tiger!

Jusr couldn't stay still...thats what i love about kids you never know what they are going to do next!

Always a bounus when the dog comes

There seems to be a theme

So as I am posting lots of new photos there seems to be a beach theme today! This engagement shoot was for Marla and Jared. Their wedding is next friday at the Pond House in Elizabeth park. Love that little place it has so much character!

An evening on Fairfield Beach

When Meghan and Chris called me for their engagements i asked them what is an important spot to the 2 of them. Meghan mentioned the fairfield beach. They 2 of them met at fairfield college so they have spent many days at this beach on the private section of the beach. So I went down at my favorite time of the day about 6pm to catch the sunset light which is always gorgeous at the shore. As usual by the end of the shoot I was wet head to toe for I decided to lay in the wet sand and the tide decided to come in. But it was worth it for the shots I got!

Just playing around!

Val and Joe had chosen Hubbard Park in Meriden as their choice for their engagements. We were walking around when I ran into the playground. I love playgrounds! The slides, swings, sand what else could you ask for! I was having so much fun running around and laying down in the sand to get that shot! Val and Joe are getting married this fall and I also have the privilege of doing her sister Marci wedding next year. I am so excited to be a part of their family now! Thanks girls!

Fun in the Sun!

So I am finally starting to catch up with all my phone calls and editing from last week. And one thing is to catch up with blogging!

A couple of weeks ago I was down at Hamanassett Beach with Hilary and KJ. Their wedding is coming up in September! I love to photograph at this beach. There are so many cute spots that I keep finding each time I go there. From the beach to the boarwalk to the signs and much to use! Kj was funny for he was not sure if he was doing anything right he kept sying but I told him there is never a wrong way to pose, laugh or do whatever. Just as I thought we were done Hilary pulls out these awsome sunglasses and I was like wait a couple more. Those last few shots are my favs which are above.

We had a blast that morning and what I did not realize is that I forgot the sun block. When I got home my nose was all red!
