So…from Emily and Chris, through Alex and Paul, we get to Liz and Michael. This path is a easy to explain because Liz just happens to be Alex’s sister. Again I’ll say that there is no better feeling than when friends and family trust us enough to send their loved ones to us time and again. It’s not just about doing a great job with their weddings and them loving their images. We would hope that would be the case no matter how someone finds us. It’s the comfort level that everyone has with us before we even show up the wedding, like we’re old friends who just happen to have 30 pounds of camera gear 🙂 Well, we and our combined 60 pounds of gear hopped on a train to Long Island and the lovely town of Bayshore, NY. Liz and Michael were married at the beautiful St. Patrick Parish in downtown Bayshore and then we were off to Captain Bill’s right on the waters of the Great South Bay. We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day and, having grown up on the shore of North Carolina, it was pure joy to shoot their high-energy reception with the smell of salt air all around. Enjoy!
Emily and Chris came to us through our good friends Alex and Paul, who’s wedding at Maymont in Richmond was featured on our blog a little while back. Getting to meet and know so many wonderful people and then have them share us with their equally wonderful friends is one of the joys of photographing weddings. It’s like becoming part of a many-branched family tree that welcomes you to some of the some of the most important events of their lives time and time again.
For this beautiful couple who so clearly loved each other, we traveled up to a venue that I’d never had the pleasure of photographing, the H.P. Rawlings Conservatory in Baltimore, MD. Just like the wedding itself, the conservatory was intimate and inviting, and filled with little surprises through every doorway. Emily’s grace and Chris’s humorous and caring personality worked its way through the entire event and set the tone for the evening. It was truly a pleasure to be there. Thank you so much to the Marcus and Dunn families for making us feel so welcome. Also, thank you to my good friend Rob Garland for stepping in to help out with the wedding. It was much more fun than it had a right to be with you there.
