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!

A Harkness Park Wedding – Jen and Jared!

Jen and Jared’s wedding was so full of love, romance and pure beauty!  After they all got ready at the Mystic Marriott, their traditional ceremony was held at St. Mary’s Church in New London.  All portraits and the reception were held at Harkness Memorial State Park, in Waterford CT.  This wedding had it all: a beautiful bride and groom, a fantastic venue, and an amazing party!  We loved every minute of this wedding, and hope that you will too!  Enjoy the photos!

A Glastonbury CT Elopement – Melonie and Stephan!

There is always a lot of excitement when we get commissioned to photograph a last minute elopement ceremony!  We haven’t met the couple yet, however we are honored to be the only guests at their wedding:) Melonie and Stephan traveled from NYC to A Cardinal House in Glastonbury CT to exchange vows.  Enjoy the photos!

A Water’s Edge Wedding – Leslie and Martin!

Leslie and Martin had such a perfect wedding day!  The weather was great, everyone looked amazing, and the whole day just flowed seamlessly.  Everything was held at Water’s Edge Resort and Spa, in Westbrook CT.  After a lovely first look, we were able to photograph all the group photos, including bridal party and family portraits.  Their ceremony was held on the field over looking the ocean, and the cocktail hour was outside as well.  The blue and green color scheme was great, and the flowers were perfectly beach-y:) We hope that you enjoy the photos!

A Cascade Wedding – Melissa and Wayne!

What a beautiful wedding Melissa and Wayne had earlier this month!  We really had a great time with this super fun group of people, regardless of how hot and humid it was!  They chose Cascade because of the chandeliers and the elegant feel when walking in, and their black, purple and green color scheme really worked well.  Melissa decided to have a “sparkler get-away” at the end of the night, and it was a fabulous idea, loved it!  Enjoy the photos!

A St. Clements Castle Wedding – Rebecca and Chris!

Rebecca and Chris were one of our sweetest couples all year!  They planned their wedding all the way from Florida and did a fantastic job keeping everything organized.  This wedding had a very feminine and romantic feel to it, helped with the lilac colored bridesmaid’s dresses and the gorgeous vintage bouquets.  Their ceremony was held at St. Sebastian Church in Middletown, and their daytime reception was held at St. Clements Castle.  We hope that you enjoy the photos!
