K+J 2020 Wedding Sneak Peek | Connecticut Wedding Photographer Newtown, CT

“Planning a wedding in 2020 was anything but easy, with the exception of working with Jess. When COVID-19 hit and it looked like we would need to change our original wedding date, Jess was the first (and only) vendor that reached out to me preemptively. She worked with us to reschedule and was gracious and kind throughout the whole process. She even met with us on our original wedding date to take engagement photos, which really helped brighten a day that was bittersweet! Although our plans changed yet again for our 2nd date and we had a backyard wedding with 16 guests instead of 120, we decided it was important for us to still have photos of that day and I’m SO glad we did. My husband and I don’t take a ton of photos of ourselves, and I am not generally comfortable in front of a camera, but I am so in love with the photos Jess took of our wedding day. It’s been wonderful to be able to share them with our family and friends who could not be with us, so they mean even more to me than I would have anticipated. I would recommend Jess to anyone in a heartbeat!”

Engagement Session

Katlyn’s best friend Shayna was living in NYC, and Katlyn went to visit her. Jeff is Shayna’s third cousin and came to visit at the same time. We were engaged 6 years to the day later!

COVID-19 🙂 We were meant to have a 100+ person wedding at Great River Golf Club, on May 30th, but postponed until August 21st. After a while it became clear that it would not be safe for our family and friends to have a 100 person wedding, but after almost 7 years together we did not want to wait any longer to get married. Katlyn’s Aunt Lindy and Uncle John lovingly agreed to have our wedding in their beautiful backyard with our wedding party and parents. It is the site of many years of family celebrations and happy memories, so it felt like the perfect spot.
