Best Wedding Photographers in Connecticut

Par La Mer Photography





Hello, I'm Tonya! I am a documentary wedding, boudoir & lifestyle photographer with an editorial approach based in Northern Fairfield County, Connecticut. At the heart of my work, you will find authentic connection & composition, some of the most important things to me as an artist. I build on that with honest storytelling with a more editorial approach. Any one can pick up a camera and learn how to technically use it, but an artist’s eye is unique to them. My inspiration lies in authentic human connection & emotions, pockets of light, vintage film, movement, honest interactions, vibrant colors found in nature, fog after a rainfall. Finding beauty in the most ordinary things.
