Candace Jeffery Photography's Blog bio picture
  • Welcome to our blog!

    We believe in love. Real, passionate love that lasts a lifetime. For the past 12 years we've been lucky enough to have the privilege of freezing special moments of love for many happy couples. We find it extremely fulfilling to be able to photograph couples during this time. It is our goal to develop lifelong relationships with our clients. The love that we share as husband and wife for each other and our 3 children inspires us to photograph other couples in love.

    Some quick technical stuff: Candace graduated from Hallmark Institute of Photography in 2002. Josh began photographing weddings with Candace in 2006. We are members of Professional Photographers of America, and the ever exciting CT PUG group. We limit ourselves in the number of weddings that we take on per year, so that each of our clients to feel like they are the only ones we have. We believe that the beauty that we capture on your most special day deserves to be displayed only with the highest quality products. We never want our clients to be anything less than 100% satisfied with our talent, professionalism, and passion for excellence. We are based in CT and are available and excited to travel internationally to photograph your event!

Old Lyme Country Club Wedding – Lindsay and T.J.!

Lindsay and T.J. were lucky enough to have a beautiful, sunny day for their wedding a couple weeks back.  We were all pretty nervous about a potential downpour, but the sun stayed out.  We loved the preppy, nautical feel to this wedding, including the navy and pink color scheme, as well as the locations for the portraits.  After getting ready at parents’ homes in the area, the ceremony was at The Old Lyme Congregational Church.  We traveled over to Fenwick for portraits, and then back to The Old Lyme Country Club for their fun reception.  Lindsay and T.J. we had such an nice time working with the two of you, really you are both so very sweet.  We hope that you love the photos!

A Rainy day wedding at Mystic Seaport – Chelsea and Bill!

Remember that crazy stormy day a couple weeks ago?  That was Chelsea and Bill’s wedding day, at Mystic Seaport, with flash flood warnings coming in!  We loved so many things about this Nautical themed, multi-colored wedding.  Check out how cute the invitations, flowers, mismatched shoes and cardigans and clear umbrellas are.  After getting ready at the Mystic Marriott in Groton, we headed over to Latitude 41 for some rainy day wedding portraits.  Their ceremony was held under the tent over over looking the water, and their reception was inside the River Room at Latitude 41.  We hope you enjoy the photos, we certainly had fun at the wedding!  Full list of vendors at the end of the post.

La Bella Vista Wedding – Sarah and Steve!

Josh and I had really been looking forward to Sarah and Steve’s wedding ever since their beautiful, sun-filled engagement session last year.  Although it was almost 100* last Friday when they got married, everyone was in very good spirits and it made our job very easy.  We loved their colors, coral and grey, and especially loved the location they chose to do their portraits: Taft School in Watertown.  Their ceremony was held at St. John the Evangelist and their reception was at La Bella Vista.  Please enjoy the photos!  (Complete list of vendors at the end of the post.)
