Chris & Erin's Wedding

It really is a small world! I met Chris and Erin for their wedding consultation back in early 2008. Erin had been referred to me by one of my brides, who is also Erin's co-worker. So, we met to go over my services, packages, etc. As we are talking, Chris says, "Are you related to Dave Fiereck?" I said, "Yes, he's my husband." Turns out, Chris and Dave went to elementary school together and played soccer together. I am always meeting new people and reconnecting with others through my job. It is a reminder of how interconneted we all really are. Anyways, Chris and Erin tied the knot on 5.16.09. It was a beautiful day and they were a wonderful couple to work with. And the wedding party was a fun group, too! Congratulations to Chris & Erin!

Mike & Janet (and Rocky and Casey, too)

Mike and Janet are tying the knot this August. We photographed their engagement session at Wickham Park in Manchester (one of my favorite places to shoot). They brought along their two dogs, Rocky and Casey. We went on a weekday in the morning, so the park was pretty quiet and the two pups could run around. It was pretty cloudy, which was nice for portraits. Check out more of my favorites on J. Fiereck Photography's Facebook page.

I Love Love!

This blog entry is dedicated to my husband, Dave...my rock, my best friend, my favorite everything.

So, I photographed a beautiful young couple, Elder and Tara, for their engagement session recently. We just walked around the streets of New Haven, starting at St. Mary's where they are getting married in October, and captured some pretty sweet moments for them. I just love seeing two people so in love. This makes my job incredibly easy, because they really didn't need much direction at all. My husband, Dave, and I celebrate our 6 year anniversary this month and it reminds me how amazingly blessed I am to have found my soul mate.

Here's some of my favorites from Elder and Tara's session. I love love! :)

Cousins: Grace & Ella

I photographed my friend's daughter and her little cousin at Williams park in Glastonbury. One of my favorite places to photograph kids because the playground is nice and shaded. Here's some of my favorites. Enjoy!

A Place Like No Other: CT Children's Medical Center

One of the things I love most about being a photographer is that I am afforded the opportunity to meet so many new people and visit some pretty cool places. So, while I am providing a service to my clients, they are also providing me with some incredibly, inspiring learning experiences. Case in point...Yesterday, I did a photo shoot for the CT Children's Medical Center in Hartford.

I photographed a portrait of Dr. Christopher Carroll in the PICU, otherwise known as the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (Imagine calling a special place like this your office?). Then it was off to get some candids of the staff working with patients, where I met "Kevin," a handsome young man who was at CT Children's for an outpatient visit. We hit it off, as you can tell by his message on the Etch-a-Sketch thingy...

Business Champs Breakfast

I covered the 2009 Business Champions Breakfast yesterday for the Hartford Business Journal at the CT Convention Center. Great event, great venue and impressive companies who are doing some pretty great things, despite this economy. Hats off to the winners. Check out more images from the event on the J. Fiereck Facebook page.

Engagement Session at Gillette Castle: Mark & Sara

I really enjoyed capturing some moments for Mark and Sara at Gillette Castle for their engagement session. The weather was gorgeous and we went at the end of the day, when the park was quiet and serene. The happy couple ties the knot in September (on my birthday, actually). Looking forward to celebrating and capturing their big day, too! :) Here's my top pic(k)s from the engagement session.
