Lisa+Brett @ The Riverview, Simsbury CT

Lisa and Brett were married on October 15th in Hartford with a reception following at The Riverview in Simsbury, CT. It was a SUPER windy day—as you will se from one of my favorite images below—

this was adorable – the little ragged bear to the right is from when Lisa was a kid—so CUTE!!!

Dana Bartone working her hair magic!


as a surprise, Lisa’s family arranged to have a dove release afterwards!


OK – so THIS is a riot. Im standing there talking to Lisa getting ready to take a shot, the crazy wind whips up – her veil stands straight up on her head—POPS right out of her head and attaches itself to the side of the church stonework!!! An intrepid groomsman was able to rescue it. Luckily she had a great sense of humor about it. i said, “I think that’s the funniest thing I have seen all season!!”

and NO – I was NOT fast enough on the trigger to GET it flying out of her hairdo–who expects THAT to happen??!!


since it started to rain, we went to the train station in downtown Hartford and kinda–well—took it over for photos! They were really cool about it and even asked if i could send them come images! (I thought for sure I was going to get yelled at and asked to leave!!)


I know now if gift checks are missing why that is—   🙂

    Robert~ Your work is amazing! I truly enjoyed looking through all these photos! You truly captured their special day! The couple should be thrilled with the images! Love the veil stuck to the church!!! OMG…too much!

    Robert, you have outdone yourself once again. These photos are absolutely beautiful, and certainly captured the essence of the day amazingly well. Since I am fairly close to Brett and Lisa, I can also say without a doubt that you also managed to capture their personalities perfectly. Bravo!

    I may be a little prejudiced since I’m the new mother-in-law but I think that every photograph is beautiful and captured how happy everyone was for Brett and Lisa !!! My expression when the doves were released was priceless !!!!! Robert – again thank you – for those of you who don’t know it – this was the 3rd wedding that Robert has done for our family in the last 4 years !

    The shot with the doves flying off is spectacular!

    I just LOVE the photos! Every picture truly tells a story….I really like the fact that they are not the typical wedding settings. Candid yet some semblance of formality….a very artistic eye….Everyone looks happy! Brett and Lisa should be on the cover of “In Style” or “Vanity Fair”
