As someone who only had 20 people at their wedding, there will always be a special place in my heart for intimate small weddings. Mark and Jo had just that. A small intimate wedding in the woods of Hillsdale, NY. Surrounded by their very closest family and friends, they said their vows in front of a backdrop of trees. After, we spent some time taking advantage of the natural beauty of the area - the fields, the farms, and of course the cows. I had so much fun because Mark and Jo were up for anything! After portraits, they met back up with the rest of the guests at a unique air bnb for a lovely dusk dinner.
It was such a beautiful and touching day and I am so happy I got to be a part of it. Enjoy the photos :)

Often I don't get a chance to meet my couples before their wedding day and so there's always a little bit of trepidation on my end when I arrive on site. What will they be like, how will the day unfold etc. What I found when I arrived to the salon to begin photographing Jessa was a happy, peaceful soul, and what I found when I met Daniel was her perfect match. Kind, warm-hearted, loving, and very clearly loved are all ways you could describe Jessa and Daniel.
Their wedding day at Barnes Barn in Upstate, NY was an epic display of that love. Surrounded by their nearest and dearest on a beautiful hilltop, these two said "I Do". After a portrait session on the picturesque property, they treated their guests to a delicious BBQ dinner and a live band.
I feel honored and humbled that I am tasked with photographing these moments for my sweet clients and I am grateful I was there to document Jessa and Daniel's wedding day. Enjoy the photos :).
