Your Connecticut Wedding Photographer
I am an award winning, published, New England wedding photographer originally from Wisconsin, now located in Farmington, Connecticut. I love LOVE, humor, true crime, red wine, breweries, romance, coffee, John Hughes movies, horror films, Halloween, adventure, travel, my little people (Jace and Isla) and my dog (Mosby the doodle bug) and now a tortie cat named Wisco. I'm also only 4 degrees from Kevin Bacon (so that officially makes you 5 if you book us!).
I'm the photographer that might climb a tree to get the perfect shot. I'm the photographer that might have to calm your mother-in-law down when the groomsmen pose naked with nothing but bridesmaids' bouquets in front of them. I'm the photographer that is going to go out of her way to capture the perfect moments, not just the posed ones.
I am going to capture the look of love in your eyes, the genuine giggle of a child and the raw emotion of a groom when he sees his bride for the first time. I'm not about copying another "jumping" bridal party photo. I'm not about making you pose in a cheesy formation. I'm about making you feel as comfortable as though your best friend was behind the camera taking your pictures. I'm about real. I'm about genuine. I'm about creativity, and I'm about art. I will capture your most celebrated moments with a piece of my artistry. I have a creative twist, a unique one and something canvas-worthy.
You will love what I do.
"Is it weird to be OBSESSED with your photographer? Because I totally was/am! Rayleen was a DREAM to work with from day one. Kindred spirits immediately. After a terrible experience with a prior photographer, Rayleen swooped in and saved our day. She is super creative, super communicative and ridiculously talented. I would also like to shout out her partner Katie who was incredibly creative and an absolute joy to work with as well! We had a themed wedding and both Rayleen and Katie embraced the fun and came in costume lol! We received so many compliments from our guests about these two and Ken and I would recommend them a million times over! Truly grateful for everything they did and we don't even need to get the pics back yet to know they will be out of this world." -Niki, 2023 bride
