Wedding Photography

Wedding Ceremony and Reception: Crabtree’s Kittle House, Chappaqua, NY

Hair and Make-Up: Static, White Plains, NY

Assistant Photographer: AnyaFoto, New Milford, NJ

Being asked to shoot a wedding for anybody is always an honour; being asked to shoot the wedding of another wedding photographer is a nerve-wracking honour! And so it was with a mixture of excitement and trepidation that I accepted my friend Peter Forman‘s request to photograph his wedding for him and his fiancée, Jess.

We’d only really met briefly last year at Cliff Mautner’s Lighting and Skillset Bootcamp in Philly, and so I was very surprised and flattered when Peter called me back in February to ask me about my availability.

I was doubly pleased to be assisted on the big day by another workshop buddy, the extremely talented Anya Roudenko of AnyaFoto. It was great catching up, seeing her in action and experimenting a little bit. She has a very different style to mine, but one I admire very much indeed.

The wedding day itself was very British with its grey and rainy weather, but that didn’t dampen the fantastic mood of the bride and groom and their friends and family. In fact, it was one of the most fun weddings I have had the pleasure of covering. Things definitely got interesting on the dance floor as the night progressed!

Here are just a few of my personal faves from the day:

We started off the day at Primp Salonbar, which is a really cool place for the bride and her entourage to hang out and have fun while they get ready. Aside from great staff, the full bar certainly adds to the festivities! From there we headed over to St. Mary's School, which is home to a lovely little chapel that dates back to the early 19th century. Christine went to high school there, so it provided a beautifully ...

Set in the North Carolina Piedmont countryside, and with a history stretching back to 1859, it is a truly fantastic location oozing with character and ambience. From the moment I saw the house nestled in its 13 acres of green pasture and pecan groves, I knew I was in for a treat. Sheila and Larry, the ...
