I am SO thrilled to finally share this post!!
Many of my photographer friends have already hopped on this boat – and after taking the month off I’m ready to join the fun too! It’s been so fun looking through all the images I took this year of my amazing couples to share with you my BEST. I’m sure there’s a few others I could have included! But these are just some of my personal faves! Some I was proud of because of their joy, some because of the intimate moment they shared, some images I love because of lighting, some because of the scenery and framing.
I was so blessed to work with such truly amazing, adventurous, fun-loving, trusting, creative and grateful couples. AND, it was so fun that telling their stories took me to so many amazing locations and venues! From the Catskill mountains, to farms; to intimate country clubs; to Florida; to vineyards; to beautiful mountain views in the Hudson Valley – there are so many amazing places represented here.
Thank you for going on this journey with me and supporting my work, friends. It means more than you know. And I’m so thrilled to share more BEST OF posts in the coming weeks, as we look ahead to 2016 together But for now, enjoy the 2015 Best of Weddings!!
I love all this JOY!
Love this shot of these two against the distressed barn!
So beautiful in every way – and I love Jade’s flower crown and all this greenery!
So fun to capture not only Kelly and Ryan’s dog Maggie, but Arielle and James with this cow and flower wreath! These were firsts for me!!
Okay, I’m biased – this is my little brother and his wife! It was SUCH joy to be a part of their day as a sister, a bridesmaid, and part of the day photographer!
This one from Red Maple Vineyard has been my desktop background on my iMac for months now – love this romantic scene!
So fun capturing these dances! Rachael and Colby choreographed their first dance, as she was a professional dancer! And my cousin and his sweet wife love to swing – so they took a few moments in the Ritz Carlton to get the attention of all the passerby’s!
Speaking of dance, I LOVED Jasmin’s jazz era wardrobe that she changed into for the reception. Just love these two and their style – and of course this lighting!!
There was so much joy on this day it was infectious!
This is just so iconic and romantic, especially in black and white! Their love is so beautiful.
Speaking of romantic…I love this shot on the hill at the Garrison. What a gorgeous view of the Hudson Valley!
Love this stolen moment in their getaway car…
Such a beautiful scene – I just love these gardens and the setting against the CV Rich Mansion.
This was maybe, my most fun shot of the year! Jade and Steve with all of their guests shouting for joy – and the funny faces surrounding them!
This LIGHT at on Laura and Dan at West Hills Country Club couldn’t have been more perfect.
Love that swept away moment, and what classy travelers my cousins are in Sarasota, ready and up for anything!
LOVE their sweet love, and the light and the fall colors behind them!
One of my favorite sunset shots of the year! So worth it to go out at twilight!
Light and joy…two of my favorite things, always.
This pine grove at The Roxbury Barn is seriously one of my favorite places, ever. I would get married here too!
So sweet, and I love this scene with Hunter Mountain behind them.
Rachael envisioned this shot way before her wedding day, and how her dress would fluff up behind her as she jumped into her groom’s arms. It was just as romantic as she pictured.
How beautiful are these two against the House at Boscobel?! I loved Amanda’s fur and all the Christmas decor.
I love these intimate moments! My awesome cousin and his wife (left), and Dan and Susan (right).
Another favorite of the year! I love the joy and the adventure on Katie and Justin’s faces as they ran through this field at Red Maple Vineyard!
Intimate moments in black and white…priceless.Love the light in Karen and Brian’s walking shot, and this practice dance by Karolyn and Nick – so classy!
Those leaves fell so perfectly! And that swing at Red Maple Vineyard…such a romantic place to photograph.
Jenn’s joy is infectious here! And Karolyn and Nick look like they’re stepping right out of Downton Abbey (one of my favorite shows!)
Love that romantic pathway shot for Court and Ryan…and Stef looks gorgeous as Brian gazes at her!This light on Laura and Dan – seriously incredible – I was speechless!
Love Kelly and Ryan’s joy! And that pathway back to the barn was perfect for Jasmin and Lorne!Some of my most fun night shots of the year!! The old Ford was just incredible, looks straight out of a movie. And how fun was it to capture s’mores in action?!
Suzanne and Dave in the garden at nighttime was amazing enough – but the rain falling around looks like stars! Simply breathtaking!
And, my favorite sunset shot of 2015! What a way to end the season, with this gorgeous Hudson Valley view!
