Some Wedding Photos I took in 2015

2015 was definitely a big year in many regards. It was a huge year for my wedding photography as it was the second year going full time. We managed to hit our goal for bookings local as well as our travel quota, we hope to do about 20% of our weddings outside of the tri-state. I managed to photograph weddings in Colorado (3 shoots), Georgia, Michigan, New Hampshire, and Martha's Vineyard. This upcoming year, we already have some awesome travels ahead over in Florida and Texas. Another reason 2015 was such a monumental year, was the fact that we got married ourselves. Being on the other side of the lens as well as helping with the planning definitely gave me a new perspective on what all my clients have to go though on their big day. 

Without further ado, here's some favorite wedding photos from this past year.

Colorado Springs Wedding Photographer

I first met this colorado springs couple when they came out to NYC for their engagement session this past fall. We had a great time hiking around through central park, and it wasn't until I delivered their finished photos that they asked if I would come out to Colorado Springs for their wedding, it took me all of 2 seconds to say yes! We've been coming out to Colorado almost every year for both work and play, we love all the hiking around as we don't have much incline here on Long Island. I managed to setup 2 other engagement sessions while I was over there for this trip so it couldn't of worked out better. Now back to the wedding: The decor was right up my alley with a rustic feel, muted flowers, one of the prettiest wedding cakes, and the food was catered by an amazing Colorado Springs bbq joint.  Being a Colorado Springs wedding photographer, means you should also be an amateur meteorologist, I was constantly checking 3 or 4 different weather apps to know how the wedding day will go and what to expect. Colorado weather is all over the place, it could be snowing one day then mid 70's the next day. For the wedding day the chance of rain/thunderstorms/hail was high, so I was thinking the bride would be a little anxious because no one wants bad weather for their wedding. She was actually cool as a can be and the weather held out for most of the day. We did have some serious hailing and ominous looking clouds, along with rain, but the wedding didn't really miss a beat. Originally the ceremony was called for being out on the lawn, but we the venue ended up fitting all the chairs under the porch and they still got their outdoor ceremony. that was pretty much the only change that happened. We still got a ton of great portraits, and even got a great rainbow that showed up at the end of the day for one of my favorite kiss photos ever. I look forward to shooting many more weddings over in Colorado in the future and am already booked for 2016. Thanks for having us come out and being a part of your special wedding day, we had a blast and felt like guest. All the best to you both!
