A White House Wedding

Trust. You don't hire a photographer unless you trust them. It sounds cliché but that's one of the most amazing things about being a photographer. Think about it, here you are one month after your wedding. Your friends have stopped talking about the food, you're probably back from the honeymoon, and the whole memory of the wedding seems like a blur. After months of endless planning weddings can oftentimes fly by in a blur of excitement, chaos and joy.  Did it even happen? Then you remember that there is something left -- the photos. You don't think about memories until, well until they become memories. Wedding photography is storytelling. It should tell the story from start to finish in a way that those who weren't even there should feel as if they were. Finally, after a seemingly endless wait, your photos arrive and you get to live one of the best days of your life all over again. 

It was an honor to be chosen to shoot this White House Lodge (Webster, NY) wedding in late September. The weather was still surprisingly warm, yet crisp enough to make suit and tie a comfortable reality. The bride and groom catered the wedding themselves (they happen to own a catering company together) and the rest of the details were organized DIY by the bride and her man of honor. You'll notice there were no table settings - guests were invited to spread a blanket and have a picnic! Non traditional weddings are the most fun to photograph. Charming details, great weather, happy guests, a beautiful bride and a beaming groom--there's nothing more you can ask for in a wedding ;)
