Smiley & Spirited
Photography serving Connecticut
I am a teal obsessed, chocoholic, wife, and new mom who can’t get enough of capturing love stories!

Photography has been a passion project for many years but after my own 2014 wedding, I decided to parlay my years of experience in child portraiture and transition to the amazing world of wedding days! It's been 5 years and I never looked back!

My goal is to not only capture bright, bold, natural images but truly share in your love story!
“She is a joy to work with and has so much talent”
“Mariel was the best!”
