I’m so excited to be presenting a new wedding on the blog! I know, it was starting to look as if all I photographed were engagement shoots. Get ready though because I’m shooting 4 weddings over the next 10 days, so it’s going to get really busy here! When I first met Julia and Peter last summer when I shot their New York engagement session, I thought to myself, “what a stylish couple!” Um, they could not be any more smashing than what I’m going to show you on their wedding day.
A lot has happened between then and now. I will say, no matter what, Julia and Peter exemplify a true love and appreciation for each other, their families, and their friends. When you’re around them, you can’t help but feel like they have included you in their world with open arms. Not only that, meeting Julia and Peter’s families and friends and being complimented until I’ve turned beet red, it runs in the family. I am so honored.
Awesome fact – Ashley, shown here placing finishing touches on Julia’s makeup – celebrated her birthday on the same day. Julia brought her a birthday cake!
Peter also got ready in the same hotel, which meant that I could easily hop over for getting ready photos with him and his boys
This is a photo shot by my assistant Joyce. Photographers, one of the first things you should learn to do is how to pin a boutonniere. Chances are, none of the groomsmen would know how to!
There are about a billion portraits coming up of just Julia. She is just so gorgeous in her Alita Graham dress
