For me, it’s always personal. The couples who invite me into their lives to share in their wedding celebrations have asked me to document the most important day of their lives, which for me is a huge responsibility and truly an honor. Sometimes its even more personal. In this case I’ve known Sarah and her family since she was about ten, and to have been asked to photograph her wedding was for me about as terrific and meaningful as it gets.
So when we met at their fabulous sun-drenched NYC apartment, this most fabulous and fun-loving couple brought with them to the shoot not only their smiles, obvious mad about each other love for each other, but a real and larger than life and totally infectious joie de vivre. And of course hitting the streets of their neighborhood for our pictures was like setting us free in a fun zone. Every corner brought on a new adventure.
They’re getting married in September in Groton Long Point, on the Connecticut Shore Line(GLP to those in the know), one of Sarah’s favorite places in the world, and where she spent her summers growing up. A place where the two of them can share in all of those things that they love to do together from cooking to painting, hiking and riding bikes. A very special place to get married for a very special couple, and I can’t wait for that September day.
