So I’ve been waiting 6 years to shoot this wedding!
Ever since I met Lisa at Gerri & John’s Savannah Wedding in 2006, I’ve been looking forward to the day she tied the knot. Lisa used to work in Atlanta for Bold American Catering, which is how we met, and has since moved up to New York. We’ve kept in touch over the years, and last time I was in New York to shoot a wedding, we met for drinks to catch up and maybe even plan a little as we waited for Craig to pop the question. I was super excited when she called to tell me about the [actual] wedding plans in the Hampton’s, New York where they own a home.
Tying a bow isn’t his strongest talent. Lest you think I’m throwing him under the bus already, I have to say that Lisa could not have picked a greater guy! He’s truly one of the most gracious and generous guys we’ve ever met (and by “we”, I mean me and Huy Cat, my trusty second shooter who flew up to the Hampton’s with me to cover the wedding).
Okay, back to pretty and blingy wedding-y things…
Craig clearly has a little soft spot for Lisa in his heart.
Now is probably a good time to point out the weather.
We arrived before the Friday afternoon rehearsal to absolutely stunning weather. The breeze, the sun, the temperature… everything was picture perfect. Fast forward to Saturday morning, and while everything was still beautiful, mother nature was threatening to toss a few curve balls our way. We flirted with rain off and on all day long but the wind was just tremendous. It presented a few challenges, but as you can see below, everything went off as planned and the sun made an appearance right as Lisa walked down the isle. Just amazing!
And in case, you’re wondering about the order of images below, Lisa & Craig had their first look followed by photos around the Hampton’s before the ceremony.
I think I’ll let the images do the rest of the talking! (mostly)
I want a big huge canvas of this one!
This was taken about 30 seconds after the image above, but how this one looks is actually pretty close to how dark it was at the time. I could have lit it up and made it look all colorful, but I love the feel of this image. It takes me back there so much I can feel the wind if I close my eyes.
Congratulations Lisa & Craig!
