catie & peter | roundhouse | wedding

after seeing catie and peter two times at other weddings this year alone, it was finally their turn to celebrate their marriage on a beautiful late fall day at the roundhouse in new york’s hudson valley. i first met peter over 3 years ago when photographing a wedding for some of his friends. at the end of the wedding, he was there with his pizza truck (dee-lish!). after photographing his brother’s wedding and a couple of his friend’s weddings, it was finally his turn to be the groom. after so much wedding practice, catie and peter knew how to just roll with it the day of for their roundhouse wedding which made for a fantastic time for all! and what was so awesome for me was having five couples together whose wedding’s i’ve shot including two sets of siblings and a lot of familiar wedding guests who are always a blast to photograph!

there’s always that moment that the groom takes a deep breath as the bride walks down the aisle. this happens regardless of whether they saw one another ahead of time or not. walking down the aisle is ‘go time’. hudson valley roundhouse outdoor wedding ceremony hudson valley roundhouse outdoor wedding ceremony

i see a lot of my past couples at weddings that i’m shooting.  i’m not one to go around collecting all my couples at a wedding for a photo, but the fact that i had five together was pretty awesome and a new record so i had to get this shot.

thanks to tracy and ryan for initially putting the good word out there for me and so excited for their little one to arrive.  if i’m still shooting weddings by the time he/she gets married, i’ll honor my 2016 pricing for them, hah.  of course i’ll likely be in my 60’s so i can’t promise what shape my ninja skills will be in or that i won’t have moved to some island to retire and drink margaritas all day by then…
