de Seversky Mansion Wedding Photographer - Claire and Dan

I headed to Long Island to meet Claire and Dan for the first time on their wedding day.  They planned from afar in Miami and I am so glad they chose me to photograph their beautiful wedding day without having met with me about it prior to the actual event.  It was my pleasure to also photograph Claire's friend's wedding and her cousin's wedding so there were many familiar faces there which I always love.  It is such a wonderful part of my job being able to reconnect with past couples and see how their lives have changed and their families grown.  I don't get out to Long Island as much as I did when I lived in New York City but I always love an excuse to head back to New York and this day was no exception. I had photographed a wedding at the de Seversky Mansion once before in the cold of winter on a beautiful, snowy and romantic evening.  As you could imagine, July gave me a completely different set of photographs from the same venue since we traded in the snow for the heat of summer.  It was fun to see how different weddings could be in different seasons.    I loved the colors Claire chose.  The coral and light pink were soft and romantic and the pop of her sisters' brightly colored dresses really added interested to the color palette and the photographs.  Every detail was meticulously taken care of and it all added up to a truly beautiful event.

I hope you enjoy the photos from this lovely day!

Long Island Wedding Photographer - Kathryn and Will

Will and Kathryn had an amazing day on Long Island for their beautiful wedding.  I've since photographed Kathryn's extended family and they are all such good people.  I love doing what I do but it's the people that really make it worthwhile.  Knowing how much people appreciate photography makes me want to work that much harder to get the images that will make them feel like their wedding was yesterday when they look at their photos because they can so readily feel what they were feeling in the photographs.  I hope I got some of those shots for Kathryn and Will.  They deserve it!  Thank you for being such sweet clients to work with, I really enjoyed my time with both of you and your families.

Joanie and Joshua

This was one of my favorites.  Everything was perfect from the setting to the light to the weather.  The wedding took place at the Bourne Mansion in Oakdale, NY and although the forecast was anticipating rain in the week leading up to the wedding, the day was bright and beautiful.  I loved the rich purple Joanie chose for the bridesmaids and she looked exceptional in her gown.  It was a thrill to photograph this wedding and I am thankful for the opportunity to work with another wonderful couple.

Sarah and Jared

At one point or another I think every girl dreams about the idea of getting married in her backyard.  Whether or not it is realistic, there is something so romantic and meaningful about adding a marriage to your family tree at the very home where you grew up.  I guess it's a full circle kind of moment.  Sarah was lucky enough to do it.  This was a spectacular day.  

Sarah and Jared, her parents and her grandparents all live on adjoining properties.  There is so much family history here already as I learned when she originally gave me the tour before their engagement session.  It was, and is, such a special place to so many generations and you could feel how excited everyone was to be there sharing in the celebration.
I felt honored to be a part of such a beautiful day with such a lovely couple.
Thanks to Dave from DM studio for backing me up on these.
