Alyssa and Josh

Anthony's Ocean View New Haven, Connecticut

We met Alyssa and Josh through or dear clients/friends, Sarah and Joe. We photographed Sarah and Joe’s wedding a few years back, so their referring us to Alyssa and Josh meant the world to us AND getting to spend the day with them at the wedding was a huge bonus!!!

Alyssa and Josh are such a sweet couple. The way they interact with each other and their love for Alyssa’s daughter, Madelyn is prevalent. Josh is the sweetest stepdad, and the song he and Madelyn danced to didn’t leave a dry eye in the house T

We started off at Silver Sands which was full or sunshine and burrs! I was happy to be on burr patrol though and remove them from Alyssa and bridesmaid’s dresses lol I also thoroughly enjoyed meeting Alyssa’s dad who loved to tease me and is a super awesome guy!

Their sunset wedding was straight out of a tropical paradise. I kept questioning if I was in Connecticut or Florida…but the chilly weather sadly reminded me. You’d never tell by the photos though! It was an absolutely perfect and gorgeous night!!! We had a blast playing with silhouette photos with the stunning ocean sunset.

Tim had a blast hanging out with Josh, Joe and the other groomsmen. He mentioned a few times how Josh had the best laugh and personality, and after meeting him, I can see why! They’re both truly wonderful people.

We’re so happy for them and grateful we got to capture their perfect day! We’re so excited for their expecting baby (who is due on my birthday!!!)!!! I can’t wait to meet him and see them again h

Congratulations, Alyssa and Josh!!!
