Chrissy & Ed – Bermuda Beach Wedding – May 2012

I don’t shoot weddings too often, but I’ve been extremely lucky for being able to travel all over when doing so. Each one has been different and unique. From Foxwoods in Connecticut to the Redwood forest in California. So when I heard my sister-in-law, Chrissy, and her husband to be, Ed, were planning a Bermuda beach wedding I was more than psyched to be be able to photograph the occasion.
What better backdrop can someone ask for than a beautiful white sandy beach with big rock formations and crystal clear blue green waters? Add a stunningly beautiful bride and a sharp looking groom and my job was easy.

Chrissy and Ed, congratulations. We had a great time at your wedding and I am honored to have been able to photograph it for you.
The toughest part was narrowing down which ones to share on this post, but I think these sum up the day well.

Aili & Rob – Redwood Forrest Thanksgiving Wedding – Santa Cruz, CA

I’ve known Rob (or Robbie as I really know him) my entire life. Our families used to make trips down to Disney world 20+ years ago and our mothers were even good friends back in their highschool days. Something like 13 years ago he moved out to the west coast, settled down in Santa Cruz, and has been there ever since. I see him once a year or so when he makes his yearly pilgrimage to Camp Wulamat.
I can honestly say that I think Robbie is one of the nicest, most genuinely good people I know. Not only is he a ton of fun, runs all the football pools, and wishes he could beat me in poker, but he’s even the co-founder of the Coastal Community Preschool out in Santa Cruz.
I was only able to meet Aili for the first time this past summer, but from the first moment we all met her we could tell Rob couldn’t have found a better match.

Rob and Aili tied the knot this Thanksgiving in the red wood forest of Santa Cruz, it was one of the most unique and personal weddings I’ve had the pleasure of attending and photographing.

Here are just a few from the day:

Congrats Aili and Rob. I can’t wait to make it back out there for a visit!

Kristy + Mike – MGM Grand, Foxwoods, CT Wedding Photos

A couple weeks back I had the pleasure of traveling down to the MGM Grand at Foxwoods to photograph the wedding of Kristy and Mike. I was pumped for this opportunity and had high expectations after hearing stories from Kristy and her sister, Kaylee, of past shenanigans. Just the night before, the wedding party may or may not have accidentally gained access to the high rollers suite…
It was the perfect day for this nice little outside wedding. The skies were blue, Kristy looked beautiful, and Mike very GQ.
Kristy and Mike, congratulations on your marriage and here’s to a great life together. Thank you for letting me be a part of your wedding day.

More to come…
