Defining Studios is a professional photography and cinematic film production company located in Hartford, Connecticut.

Lead photographers Heather and Roger Castonguay and lead videographer Kevin Lee Huss provide local and destination wedding and event services of the highest quality, emphasizing strong technical quality and unmatched interpersonal skills.

Our photographers and videographers do everything to make your wedding or event into everything you’ve imagined and more. 

For weddings, we are available to help in venue and vendor selection, as well as create your wedding itinerary so we can keep time on your wedding day.  We help you to organize your family session ahead of time, and most of all, we’re there to make the photo and video process fun for you and your guests.  We’re always careful to give you your moments and be as discrete as possible during your ceremony, first dance and other select moments.  But when it comes to engaging with your bridal party ahead of time and joining your guests on the dance floor, we’re at our absolute best!

We are not a seasonal company that only caters to weddings from spring to fall.  We keep our skills sharp and are producing new work throughout the year.  Commercially, our photo department offers a wide array of services, including food and product photos, senior portraits, lifestyle and baby portraits, head shots, engagement sessions, and especially coverage of large events and weddings. 

Our video department offers on-site live video streaming, as well as video of engagement sessions, corporate functions, and of course large events and weddings with movie-quality artistic shooting and editing.

View our work.  Meet our team.  And book your wedding knowing you’ve got the most dedicated and energetic team working with you when it counts.


Thank you for visiting our website, we look forward to working with you!
