Connecticut Based Wedding Photographer

Hi, I'm Brittany!

Every session and wedding I capture is a dream come true for me. It took me a long time to find the courage to begin but, now, I’m making the most of every moment – capturing the magic of your love story in romantic, classic images that mark the beginning of your happily ever after. 

Photography has been a lifelong passion. But it wasn’t until I found myself stuck in an uninspiring 9-5 job that I realized how much I needed to be behind the camera. My passion lies in capturing the beautiful love stories of couples like you.

Whether it’s during your engagement session or on your wedding day, I’m dedicated to creating portraits that authentically reflect your unique relationship, transforming each image into a work of art. My approach focuses on elements like composition and lighting while guiding you into natural poses. It’s incredibly rewarding to witness your transformation from camera-shy to fully embracing your inner model during our time together!

I began Brittany Graf Photography in 2019 once I discovered my true passion for capturing the love between couples, families, and especially on wedding days. I find so much joy and fulfillment in my job. Even when I’m exhausted after a wedding or engagement session, I’m filled with excitement and happiness from the day.

Everything finally clicked.

2019

After my own wedding, I fell back in love with wedding photography. Through the guidance of my own wedding photographer, I started gathering portfolio images, taking workshops and truly started to develop my craft of wedding photography.

2018

I worked as a school portrait and dance studio photographer. I traveled all around New England, including NYC and New Jersey daily! I learned to appreciate long commutes and how to make the most of my time in my car. I also traveled to Maryland, Tennessee and Alabama a few times. I caught the travel bug for sure!

2015

I did an internship with a wedding photographer in Northern MA. I learned much from this experience, how to speak with couples about their wedding day, marketing and newsletters, curating my portfolio and photographing weddings. 

Wedding Photography INternship

2014

I pursued photography education at Fitchburg State University. It was here that I learned how to see light and capture it with a film camera. After college, I explored various genres of photography, including portraits, editorials, advertising, sports, and weddings.

My photography education continued

2009

I attended the School of Creative and Performing Arts (SOCAPA) summer program in Brooklyn, New York. During this program, I learned the ins and outs of both digital and film photography while traveling to various iconic locations including Time Square, Coney Island, DUMBO, and Central Park.

My passion for photography solidified.

2008

I picked up my dad’s camera on the National Seashore Park beach in Cape Cod, MA, and the stunning sunset reflecting in the crashing waves left me in awe. I knew I had to capture it in a photograph. From that moment on, I was hooked.

My love affair with photography took root.

THE QUIZ

Family is everything. Spending time snuggling on the couch or taking adventures with my husband Nate, our son Carter, and our Aussie shepherd Ozzy are my favorite moments. Motherhood is a daily gift of joy I’m forever grateful for.

Disney is the happiest place on earth. It brings back childhood memories and makes me feel like a kid again. I love the atmosphere of love, adventure and joy. One of my favorite parts of my Disney trips are the evening fireworks over Cinderellas's Castle in Magic Kingdom. I cry every time, tears of joy of course.

Your wedding photos should reflect your authentic love story. My wedding photos are some of my most cherished possessions. It’s a privilege to capture the classic images that become your family’s heirlooms, celebrating your love’s legacy.
