I remember Stephanie & Joe’s wedding at the Glen Island Harbour Club in vivid detail – it was an incredibly hot summer day, and I remember doing our best to keep the family and bridal party cool by staying under a canopy of trees in the Glen Island Harbour Park. That, combined with the occasional breeze coming off the marina, we were definitely able to create some photo magic! Joining our merry crew were a bunch characters who were super-dedicated to their role in the bridal party, and were all too willing to volunteer for pretty much anything at the drop of a hat. To date, I’d never seen a man scale a stone wall so quickly in my life, and whether liquid courage was involved, I cannot definitively say. But in any case, we had such a great time documenting Stephanie & Joe’s magical day, and we sincerely wish these two the very best!

It was unusually chilly in Westhampton that morning, despite a heat wave that had overtaken most of New York for much of the previous few days. The light drizzle over the ocean didn’t really help matters much, as the the waves relentlessly pounded the empty beaches along the The Ocean Resort at Bath & Tennis (formerly Westhampton Bath & Tennis). Despite our plans for an outdoor ceremony were dashed, Alex & Mike were still in high spirits, as they prepared for their beautiful indoor tent wedding with their closest family and friends. That afternoon, the weather gods did offer us about 10 minutes to snap some outdoor photos before we had to rush back inside (because pneumonia on your honeymoon is no fun!). From the bride’s killer dress, to one of the most unique bouquets we’d ever seen, to the groom’s sick dance moves – we had an incredible time documenting this beautiful Hamptons wedding from start to finish.

Having photographed several hundred weddings over the years, we’ve seen all kinds and flavors of every type of wedding imaginable. When clients ask me about our shooting preferences, or about our favorite venues, the honest truth is that none of that really matters. What matters most are the two individuals who are about to make a lifelong promise to each other – and that’s it. As their photographer, it’s my job to capture exactly that (along with a number of important details & moments of their day, as any good photographer should). Whether the tone of the images take on an editorial vibe, or one that is more documentary, or whimsical – whatever lights their creative fire, we’re simply there to throw some wood their direction and document what happens. There is beauty in authenticity, and there is power in being present in the moment. For this reason, we’ll never try to sway our clients to project themselves a certain way, or to have certain items in their itinerary. This is their special day, not ours. Case in point: many of our couples (excluding present company) are undecided about doing “first looks” for their own wedding day, as they’re afraid this would take away the impact of seeing each other for the first time as the bride is coming down the aisle. Jasmine & Mike’s gorgeous outdoor ceremony at The Tides Estate disproves all of that, as there was certainly no shortage of emotions that afternoon :).

Jasmine & Mike come from a very, very long line of previous clients (most of whom I can trace back to 2010!), and we’re just floored to be in such familiar company even after all these years. Jasmine & Mike’s summer wedding at The Tides Estate was nothing short of spectacular, as they muscled their way through one of the warmest summer days I’d ever experienced. Luckily, we budgeted plenty of down time, and found ourselves in some of the newly renovated (and thankfully, air-conditioned!) spaces on the property for some more “GQ photos” (as our beautiful bride likes to call them).

I don’t care what anybody says, but ya’ll look fabulous, GQ or not :).

This was not your average weekday wedding, not by a long shot! It’s been a few years since we’ve last had the opportunity to photograph a wedding on the luxurious grounds of Oheka Castle, but working through all these images reminded me why this is one of our favorite wedding venues in the universe. From the carefully manicured landscape, with its fountains and ivy-covered gazebos, to the towering mansion itself: it was the perfect backdrop for Sayuri & Barney’s perfect wedding celebration. Friends and family (along with their beloved human disguised as a dog) joined them for the evening’s festivities, which would likely be one of the most memorable nights they’ll ever experience in their lifetimes :).

There are two things in life that make me a little queasy: heights is one of them, and the other is being a passenger in any kind of moving vehicle (boat, plane, bus, etc). Perhaps it’s that inner dictator in me who needs to be in control of everything at all times, or that I met my grisly end in a thrill-seeking adventure in a previous life. Whatever the case may be, on this particular weekend, I found myself on a limo bus full of happy revelers playing air drums and air guitar to Queen, while cruising along a (thankfully) not-too-bumpy road in rural upstate New York in the drizzling rain. Thankfully, the ride was relatively short, the limo bus was fully stocked with ginger ale (along with other hoppy adult beverages), and seriously – who doesn’t like jamming to Queen while en route to a wedding reception?

Brady, Michael and their friends happily brought their party to the wedding reception at West Hills Country Club. We were thrilled to see them all in high spirits, rocking out with their air drums and air guitars for the rest of the evening :).
