I’ll start off by saying that this was a highly-anticipated wedding that was referred to us by the Shannon/Joseph wedding of last year. We love referrals and are always glad to hear that previous clients are so happy with our work. In many ways, wedding photography is a labor of love and nothing could be more rewarding than positive feedback like that.
Anyway, let’s get back to Megan and Sean and their fabulous wedding. They are a fun couple who were an absolute pleasure to work with. It took almost no effort for them to warm up to the camera and really I think the photos say it all. We started off with a quick shoot at home…
Megan figured out how to work the camera right away.
Oh hi ladies, lookin’ good!
I rarely do special effects but I really like the way this one turned out.
A few details before the ceremony…
Here we meet Sean and his groomsmen.
A solemn moment.
The Mr. and Mrs! Congratulations! I can’t help but smile when everyone smiles like this.
Then we stepped outside for some fun and creative portraits…
Seriously, how great is this?
The ladies must have had their Wheaties this morning.
This one is great, but it wasn’t my idea…
Suspenders and sunglasses… I dig it.
Isaac Newton has a few things to learn about gravity…
A quick break before the reception!
A few reception details…
Wow! Was this an outstanding wedding or what? Congratulations Megan and Sean, and thank you for letting us be part of your incredible day!
This has probably been the most anticipated blog post of 2010. Shannon and Joseph are a great couple, good-natured and fun-loving, and quite frankly we were really excited about shooting their wedding. In fact, a last-minute planning session we had outside in the pouring rain two nights before was more fun than it otherwise would have been without their positive attitudes. The wedding was great, the weather was perfect, and a great time was had by all! There was a doggie in a tux, a golf cart race, and all kinds of other fun stuff. By the way, let me just take a moment to say that The Stone Barn at Whitney Farms Golf Club is a beautiful location and The Groove Junkies did a great job at keeping the energy up all night. And now on to the photos…
We’ll start with a few shots before the ceremony. Shannon is simply glowing here!
I love these kinds of shots while the bride is getting ready.
Sorry Shannon’s Mom, the expressions while pinning on the veil here are too great to pass up (and of course all in good fun)…
Such cool details. The ladies and men were rocking these really sweet brown leather Pumas. I think I want a pair.
A couple of fun, classic, in-front-of-the-fireplace portraits, perfectly suitable for framing.
The girls kept telling me they wanted fun portraits… so I don’t quite know what they’re doing here but it looks like fun to me.
By the way, I should have said it above but these autumn style bouquets were really cool.
The Stone Barn is gorgeous. This looks exactly like something out of Brides magazine.
Time to get serious for the ceremony… and we get to see Joe for the first time.
It was truly a beautiful and sweet ceremony.
Ladies and gentlemen… our bride and groom… rock on!
After the ceremony we took a few minutes to head up to the highest point on the golf course. Between the gorgeous wedding party and scenery like this we got some really stunning images. 800 pixels on this blog doesn’t do them justice.
I don’t know where you get a doggie tux from but it is awesome.
Oh hi ladies. Lookin’ great!
Shannon, working it.
Rock that wedding bling and represent!
A few more detail shots…
Our caravan of golf carts as we drove around the golf course.
Someone went off road, to the right of the tree. I think I know who it was, but that will remain a secret.
A few quick shots of our bride and groom. I’m telling you, these two are a ton of fun.
Joe asked me to make sure I got a few shots of The Groove Junkies as the rock stars that they are. It wasn’t hard to pull off.
Shannon decided to attack this thing with some karate moves.
So I’ll just wrap this up with a good old-fashioned hug.
Last but not least, I wanted to share a web-friendly slideshow which we developed as a video DVD (widescreen optimized, of course) for Shannon and Joe. Make sure to crank up your speakers.
So there we have it. Thanks guys for letting us photograph your wedding. We really appreciate the opportunity and hope to see you again soon!
Wow. Pamela and Daniel are just about the nicest and friendliest couple you could hope to meet and I was really excited when they offered me the chance to shoot their wedding in Meriden, CT. A highlight for me was a trip to Hubbard Park for some dedicated photography time between the ceremony and the reception and I think the results speak for themselves. It also just so happened to be my favorite time of the day when the sun is golden and the colors just come to life. Awesome weather, awesome couple, awesome wedding. Congrats guys!
Gotta love these getting-ready details.
I usually don’t do black & white but in special cases like this one there’s a certain refreshing and honest quality to it.
I love all the emotions in the expressions below.
What a great looking couple.
Oh here’s Pam, workin’ it for the camera.
I threw a little texture on this one… timeless.
I think this next one is my favorite… its going up on my wall. These colors pop!
Champagne at the park? Yes!!
I like the lighting in this room.
Did I mention their custom wine bottles? Awesome.
Let me tell you, the guests had a BLAST doing karaoke!
I’ll wrap things up with this little dude.
Congrats again and thanks for allowing me to be a part of this outstanding day!
