Wedding: Tyler + Kelly

Despite the wedding restrictions still in place here in NY, Tyler and Kelly joyfully tied the knot this past Saturday surrounded by their close friends and family. Kelly wore a permanent smile on her face the whole day. She was stunning and her girls could not stop “oo-ing and ahh-ing.” Kelly’s sisters and friends who were in her wedding party were a dream – sweet, bubbly, expressive, cooperative, and not to mention gorgeous. I loved being with them.

I wasn’t there to photograph the guys getting ready, but Tyler and his guys were top notch as well. The guys were not only cooperative (a photographer’s dream) but also funny, down to earth, a ton of fun, and made Tyler smile lots and look comfortable. Way to go, guys – you did your job perfectly.

Their reception was held at her mom’s house. They had a beautiful tented reception in the back yard. Nolan’s Rentals did a fabulous job as always and the food! Oh my goodness, brides – you should hire Root Catering because the food and the service was all aces. I highly recommend!

Tyler and Kelly – I’m so happy to have been a part of your gorgeous day. I couldn’t have been happier not only for the amazing fall colors we got for your backdrop but also for the love that I saw each of you have for the other. I know that you both have found the one your soul loves forever. I wish you all the best and a forever of love and adventure together.

Wedding: Brian + Lisa

One year ago, I spent the evening taking engagement pictures of Brian and Lisa and knew right away that their wedding was going to be incredible. I was right. Brian and Lisa were made for each other. The looks they give each other, the way they interact, the smiles… it shows that they deeply love one another. There is a respect and adoration there that I loved watching this past Saturday. They married at Open Door Baptist Church and held their reception at Ridgemont Country Club.

Their wedding party was bomb. Like, the girls were drop dead gorgeous and the guys were so fun and cooperative. They were all a photographer’s dream. Clearly, Brian and Lisa are surrounded by equally amazing friends.

We didn’t get a sunset – cloudy skies and crazy wind during their portraits… but we did end with some night photography with Ridgemont CC beaming in the background.

Brian and Lisa, I was so honored to be able to photograph your wedding. You two are special and the love you have is incredible. Keep loving well and putting one another first and you’ll have quite the legacy of love to pass down to your family. I loved working with you both. Congratulations from the bottom of my heart!
