J+T | 2019 On The Rocks at Fox Hopyard Wedding | Connecticut Wedding Photographer East Haddam, CT
“Fantastic photographer, we loved working with Jess! She was so personable and easy to communicate with, flexible with our schedule (working full time and getting married about an hour from our home). We loved that she had many full galleries on her website, which made us confident in her photography throughout the whole day, unlike some photographers that only show you their “best of” shots on their websites. I also went back to the galleries a few times, before our engagement shoot and wedding, for some ideas of what kind of poses and types of photos I liked. She delivered sneak peeks very quickly, which was exactly what a bride wants, and our photos were edited in a reasonable amount of time–especially since she was probably trying to get out tons of work before her maternity leave. She did our wedding about 6 months pregnant and didn’t miss a single beat the whole day!”
Tim and Jess met the old fashioned way–the internet. A friend picked his profile out of the many with Tim’s answer to the question, “What do you like to do on a Friday night?” to which Tim answered, “go out to a bar with friends or watch Netflix with my dog,” and that quickly sealed the deal.
Early in their relationship, Tim had brought Jess to a Paint Nite, and they had gone again with friends a year later. Tim saw that they were sponsoring a Paint Nite at the restaurant they had been to on their first date, around the time he was planning to propose. He had corresponded with the event organizer, told her his plan to paint “willl you marry me?” on his canvas, and she was excited. He was really pushing Jess to attend that Paint Nite, but when she went to book the tickets, she told him, “That night got changed to Uncle Buck’s bar at Bass Pro Shop. Do we have to go to that?” Tim was furious, and brought Jess to their first date restaurant, to propose the old fashioned way. When they were seated in the back, there was a full house–at least two or three times as many patrons as there usually were. Tim suffered through the whole meal, snuck the ring to the Irish owner, who brought it out with dessert, and Tim got down on one knee in front of at least 50 people.
The bride is an architect, which meant that finding a venue that fulfilled her as-of-then unknown vision was no easy feat. On the Rocks brought everything they wanted in a venue: a view, a rain plan, tons of New England character, plus a great team.
