Melissa & Vinny
Wedding at Lands End, Sayville, NY
Attending a friend's wedding is always a blast; shooting a friend's wedding is an exciting experience full of unforgettable memories. Melissa was one of the first models I worked with when I began my career in photography, so I was looking forward to having the opportunity to work with her on her special day. It was a cool crisp Thursday in October and you could tell that fall had finally arrived, giving me the refreshingly comfortable shooting conditions I had so greatly missed.
Melissa and Vinny had a super fun and outgoing wedding party, so I wanted to be sure to capture the lighthearted nature of the group. Having the opportunity to work with a group full laugher and energy makes the shoot all the more fun, so be sure to run with it! Follow the upbeat attitude of the group and try to capture the moments as they happen. Often times, fun groups with great energy will naturally give you the shots you usually have to work to create.
The venue, Land's End in Sayville NY, had a very light and beachy feel to it, allowing me to incorporate elements of the weddings theme into the nature of my work. The property gave us the opportunity to take advantage of a killer sunset, giving me the conditions I needed to capture beautiful silhouette shots.
I had a great time working with Melissa and Vinny and wish them all the best!
