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:

Britne and Calebe's wedding was a real coming together of cultures. With Caleb and his family hailing from Brazil, and Britne being from right here in the gold ol' USA, there was definitely a really fun vibe to this wedding. Britne wrote out and learnt her own personal vows in Portuguese, which was a surprise to Caleb and a very touching moment of the ceremony. We were blessed with a perfect sunny spring day for the ceremony outside at the Borden Building in Fred Fletcher Park in downtown Raleigh.  Here are just a few of my faves from their day...

Three distinct cultures came together last month at Pascale and Tim's Umstead wedding: with Lebanese and Japanese elements intertwined with a traditional American wedding there were so many beautiful moments and pretty details to take in. From the getting ready with the always-amazing Stephanie at The MakeUp Culture, to the first look on the boardwalk, the ceremony overlooking the lake, through to the reception with its origami details, traditional Lebanese drum band, confetti-enhanced cake-cutting and plenty of dancing courtesy of the talented DJ Rang, it was a great day to be a wedding photographer. Everything was put together brilliantl ...

This is an image that just makes me smile. Capturing moments between loved ones is something I really enjoy doing. I'm not sure if it's because my wife and I live so far away from our families and loved ones back home in England and Panama and we miss them, or if it's just the old romantic in me, but I love watching people interact and have fun together. It's one of the reasons I love what I do. In this case, we can see the bride's mum and granddad sharing a dance and a laugh later on in the reception. No real mystery in how the shot was put together, except by shooting in manual mode and compensating for the darker environment using avail ...
