Ethan Kociela // I'm a freelance photographer based in Fairfield, CT that was brought up in a small town in Western Massachusetts (Montague Center). I discovered my love for art and photography at a young age and continued that passion through studies at the Hartford Art School, University of Hartford. There, I learned the pricipals of photography as the base of my skillset today.
I love camping, backpacking and the outdoors which naturally lead to a love for landscape and wildlife photograpy. As my enthusiam to improve grew, I began to photograph family and friends every chance I got. It wasn't long before I recognized how rewarding it was to capture authentic moments of people connecting.
I aim for a candid feel at all the weddings I shoot because I think the best photos are the authentic ones. When the moment is genuine, the image is strong. That is what I strive to capture and why I love what I do.
