The last time we saw Nicolette and Tom was back in June 2015 for the engagement session that resulted in one of my favorite pictures of all time. I stated then that I was pretty sure you could put Nicolette and Tom in front of the most horrific backdrop ever and they’d still make it look good, and I stand by that statement despite continuing to only see them in front of really beautiful scenery. Maybe we’ll meet them in a random road-side Waffle House at some point to test my theory. Anyway, this time they brought us up to their home turf of Connecticut (her family’s from Danbury and his is from New York) to photograph their serious stunner of a wedding. This is our second time photographing a wedding in CT, and it is a tremendously beautiful state. Lots of trees, big rocks, water, adorable houses. So then you put these two really good looking people in front of the really good looking scenery and everything’s just really Zoolander-level good looking. Also – this wedding, which was incredible in terms of solid planning, decor, and fun family+friends, was Tom’s first ever wedding he’s been to. He set the bar pretty high for himself, eh?! Congratulations to some of our favorite people ever. Thank you for being so sweet and wonderful. We cannot wait until you join the ranks of North Carolinians!
