Sarah is a friend of a friend who found me via our mutual friends friendly friend fest lol (say that 5 times fast ). Our mutual friend is Cynthia Nelson-Brusco who I did the photography for in the Outer Banks and whose photography is recently posted on here….see Cynthia & Rich. I met Sarah’s parents at this clambake that Cynthia & Rich were hosting, and heard I was doing the photography for them. They wanted to know more about me as her own daughter was having an upcoming wedding. So naturally I told her how horrible I am at what I do ;-). That my editing style is all over the map. That I don’t do stories, and rather try to capture individual great shots where the entire story can be summed up in just one of the photos taken. I was kidding of course…..well sort-of.
When capturing a night like Sarah & Will’s Wedding, I took the environment into the feel of the shots I was going for. The environment here was the awesome Hopewell Valley Vineyards in Hopewell, NJ Being that it was a winery, the mood was red wine with a lil bit of country fall rustic thrown in. The catering and decor was provided by Chez Alice and Che Alice Catering.
We got great shots against the wine barrels, the vineyard, the wine press, etc. We also got to go down in the cellar which was a challenge lighting wise but I made it work.
My favorite shot was of the Mr & Mrs pumpkins they had made. That shot alone represents the entire night, and its why I made it the cover here.
