marie and brian’s berkshire hills country club wedding in pittsfield, massachusetts was sure to not disappoint. i originally met brian way back in 2013 at marissa and ben’s september wedding at the grandview in new york. the following september everyone met up again at the grandview for lea and alex’s wedding where i got to meet marie as well. i knew it was going to be a great day with this group for yet another september wedding.

although marie and brian orginally met back in 2011 while working college fairs, it would take them until 2013 to start dating. they had their first date, brian asked her to be his girlfriend and they got engaged all on the 23rd of the month so a wedding on the 23rd kept with their theme. although marie and brian live in california, they both grew up in massachusetts so a berkshire hills country club wedding made sense.

i saw this long box wrapped up for marie and thought maybe it was a yoga mat? it’s a pretty oddly shaped box compared to all of the other boxes i’ve seen on wedding days. marie clearly didn’t know what it was either, but was moved to tears when she saw the item. as was i.

if you don’t get the reference to the yellow umbrella you need to check out the series ‘how i met your mother’… i thought it was funny when during the speeches it was brought up that brian wasn’t a very good gift-giver when earlier in the day his gift to marie had literally moved me to tears.  Berkshire Massachusetts bridal prep

when stephanie reached out to me about her and steve’s madison hotel wedding, it was pretty obvious she was my kind of bride and that’d we’d be a good fit for working together. we share the same birthday, i have a thing for flamingoes as well (there used to be one on my site and i realize i have too many saved items at places like etsy of flamingo things i want to order) and i get the impression that we are both overachievers who know how to work hard, but like to be a little silly and have fun. we got to meet up in nyc for their engagement session during the summer to get a little practice for the big day. it was a beautiful and comfortable fall day for their madison hotel wedding.

darya and juan were blessed with a gorgeous summer day for their castle at skylands manor wedding in new jersey’s botanical gardens. as ballroom dancers, i knew i’d be in for some awesome dancing during the reception. and dancing is how they found me! one of my beautiful bride’s fathers takes lessons with darya and had mentioned me to her. he did a fantastic dance with his daughter at their wedding at the gables on lbi last year. i could literally watch darya and juan dance together for hours!  skylands manor summer wedding

a little dramatic light. what makes me love this image more is i didn’t ask the makeup artist to hold her pencil. so much of what excites me about wedding photography is capturing the real story, not the staged story that has become so popular.  skylands manor New Jersey bridal prep luxury New Jersey wedding photographer skylands manor New Jersey bridal prep

darya and juan didn’t want to do a first look, but they wanted to have a moment together prior to the ceremony. without telling them what to do,their expressions being synchronized with laughter at points and the direction of their eyes mirrored one another. pretty neat to watch while they had no clue what the other was doing. there was a lot of laughter and some tears (of joy, of course!)… the castle at skylands manor New Jersey wedding the castle at skylands manor New Jersey wedding the castle at skylands manor New Jersey wedding the castle at skylands manor New Jersey wedding

although darya is mid cry here with tear stains down her cheek, i had to share this image. right after their ceremony they went off together for a minute and i like to give my couple a few minutes to themselves. when i looked over, i saw her emotional and it was such a beautiful moment because she was so moved by the ceremony. this is what weddings are about. this is why you don’t see 25 pictures of a bouquet and shoes at the start of my blog. this is why i capture weddings. for the fact that my couples are so in love with one another, they are moved to such emotion on their wedding day and that i can capture it beautifully to share the joy.  skylands manor NJ wedding photography outdoor wedding ceremony castle at skylands manor New Jersey ringwood state park bride and groom castle at skylands manor New Jersey ringwood state park bride and groom castle at skylands manor New Jersey ringwood state park bride and groom castle at skylands manor New Jersey ringwood state park wedding photography castle at skylands manor New Jersey ringwood state park wedding photography

i had asked darya if they had planned a special dance for their first dance since her and juan are both ballroom dancers. she said that they didn’t. they were just going to dance. i think that is awesome that in some ways, they left work at home and took the fun part of it to just dance together. of course they dance freaking beautifully together without rehearsing anything! castle at skylands manor nj wedding reception castle at skylands manor nj wedding reception

when your parents have a lot of siblings, you end up with a lot of cousins and second cousins and cousins removed, etc. etc. in the end, it’s easier to just call them all cousins. kathy and dave’s south gate manor wedding involved a lot of my cousins. kathy and i share one set of great grandparents which means that kathy and i and a whole bunch of people at her wedding would not exist had those two people not come together in the first place. pretty cool. i thought she was my third cousin, but upon some research, apparently she is my second cousin. hmm. it all gets pretty confusing, hence reverting to just calling everyone my cousin. what’s also pretty cool is that i had the honor of photographing kathy’s best friend’s wedding last year…(who married kathy’s cousin who isn’t my cousin or cousin removed, etc). hah.  South Gate manor wedding portrait

more second cousins once removed…or are they third cousins? or are those two the same damn thing? either way, i candidly landed all 5 of my first cousin once removed grandkids. so basically… cousins.  South Gate manor outdoor wedding ceremony South Gate manor outdoor wedding ceremony

it was a seriously bright and sunny ceremony. kathy and dave provided sunglasses for everyone… South Gate manor outdoor wedding ceremony South Gate manor outdoor wedding ceremony South Gate manor outdoor wedding ceremony South Gate manor outdoor wedding ceremony South Gate manor outdoor wedding ceremony South Gate manor New Jersey outdoor wedding ceremony South Gate manor outdoor wedding ceremony South Gate manor outdoor wedding ceremony South Gate manor outdoor wedding ceremony

i’m gonna give myself a nice pat on the back for scoring all of these images during a ceremony that was less than 10 minutes and that was both backlit by the sun and spotlit unevenly from the front by a reflection from the building behind that could only happen during a few minutes of the day… which happened to be during their ceremony.

so when you’re searching for your wedding photographer and they bathe you in pics of pretty details and beautiful backlit pics of a couple strolling happily along, ask them to see some pics from some tough lighting situations and from the reception. unpredictable moments in hard-to-light situations are a true test of a photographer’s skill. that’s my wedding photography psa for the year.  South Gate manor outdoor wedding ceremony South Gate manor outdoor wedding ceremony South Gate manor outdoor wedding ceremony South Gate manor outdoor wedding ceremony

After over a decade of being together, katie and rob had an awesome rock island lake club summer wedding.  they met way back in their high school years when she was his waitress at friendly’s. we had some fantastic weather for their august wedding which was a fun contrast to the chilly winter day we had during their engagement session in my ‘hood. guests got to enjoy a beautiful outdoor ceremony, a cocktail hour by the lake and smores later that evening. rock island lake club wedding portraits rock island lake club bridal suite
