I happened to be available for a last minute wedding this past September and was excited to book Kate and Josh’s wedding to be held at the bride’s mom’s home in Montauk. Montauk is the end of Long Island’s south shore and is known endearingly by locals as “the end”. The wedding was being hosted at the bride’s moms’ newly built home, that was an architectural beauty! Once I walked in I could not stop shooting, everything was light and bright, a photographers dream! The couple asked me to please keep the photography casual, we don’t want a lot a posed photos, ok, I said, but we will need a few couple and family portraits, is that ok? They agreed, but to just a few. With a backdrop over looking ditch plains on a beautiful sunny day, the sun and sea was a perfect backdrop. We kept it casual and just continued shooting everything, all the happiness, nerves and smiles, the shy dog, the gorgeous wedding party and the gorgeous surroundings, all day long, even as a little rain shower rained down during dinner which was held outside under the stars, we just kept shooting. I think in the end, (no pun intended!), the photos are a perfect description of the day and the couples wishes. Kinda cool, don’t you think? I personally love the Lihi Hod gown, it’s perfection on Kate. Please take a look and let me know what you think!
I shot this wedding with a mix of vintage film and digital cameras. I love how the photos turned out and hope you do as well! Let me know, leave a comment below.
