Gretchen & Cullen - upstate New York wedding!



I loved getting to photograph Gretchen and Cullen's autumn wedding in Ithaca, New York. Gretchen is an old college bud of mine and is seriously one of the most energetic, funtimes people that I know. So It made sense that her wedding to Cullen would be a relaxed, fun atmosphere with family and friends in a big, beautiful back yard on a lake surrounded by trees.

 Autumn in upstate New York is impressive! I think I just caught the beginning of it, but the leaves were just starting to change, the air had cooled and the wood smoke began to linger as households began their descent into winter. The wedding party swam in the lake, enjoyed a fire in the backyard pit, sauna in the large rental house and dance parties in the woods. Can't wait to go back to this part of the country!

 Following are a few of my favorite images from the day--but please scroll down to the slide show at the bottom of this post and be sure to click through to the Vimeo site to watch it in full screen in HD (and turn your audio up). Enjoy!

Susannah & Don - Rhode Island wedding

I'm excited to share this set of images from Susannah and Don's wedding in Rhode Island in September. I've never photographed a wedding there before and was especially honored to be asked to shoot it given that Susannah is a professional photographer herself. Aside from it being a beautiful, sunny day beach wedding, some of my favorite things about this celebration were the sunset light, the picturesque, historic lighthouse we were able to use as a backdrop for our bride and groom portraits, an epic dance floor (complete with some of the cutest kid dancing I've seen), and the high energy level of Susannah and her husband. All these factors came together to make for a wonderful celebration and a fun set of photographs.
