Jessica and Gaetano’s Big Day

Shooting weddings in the rain is a real challenge. I recently had the pleasure of shooting Jessica and Gaetano’s wedding. The ceremony was held at a beautiful church in Tuckahoe and the reception at the Surf Club in New Rochelle.

With tons of food and dancing, it was an unforgettable night for the Mr. and Mrs; Chris from Double Image really made the whole party come together.

But one thing that no bride or groom has any control over on their day is the weather.

There were so many beautiful architectural elements outside of the venue the couple wanted in their photos, but this wasn’t an option. Despite the downpour, I found all of these cool architectural elements inside and still ended up with great photos for the day. I was really happy to be a part of it. jessica.guy.1

Wonderful Wedding Details: Wedding Dresses

Welcome to the second posting of Wonderful Wedding Details.  Today is the Wedding Dress gallery.

It amazes me how the dresses these brides choose can look similar and yet so different.  While there seems to be a few common themes such as the sweet heart neck line and beading, the dresses exhibit a wide range of styles; from ruffles to ruching, to A-line and trumpet.  I love how each dress matches the brides’ personalties.

Wonderful Wedding Details: Cakes

I was recently going through some of the weddings I have photographed and realized that the brides and grooms have some really different tastes in cakes, decorations, flowers, etc.   I thought it would make a really interesting gallery for all you future brides and grooms out there.  Maybe this will even help you decide on a cake or theme for your wedding.  Every couple weeks, I will post another category, like flowers and dresses.  This first post will be about all the delicious wedding cakes I have photographed (and eaten).

I had 3 pieces of this cake and miss it very much.
