It's been almost two years since I shot Heather and Paul's wedding. Hell, a year ago at this time, I just returned from Mexico after surviving Hurricane Rina right before the destination wedding Andrew and I shot. Now, another momentous occasion occurred, where Alicia Griffin and I shot Samantha and John's wedding, whose brother's wedding was only my sixth wedding at the time.
I learned about the reasoning behind choosing Rockland Farms for their wedding reception. Funny enough, the entire time John's brother, Paul, and fiancé, Heather, were planning their wedding, John kept saying to hold their wedding there, but they decided upon a different location. With Samantha's adoration for goats, this seemed like a much better location for this couple. We even got to shoot Samantha and John with a goat!
It was my first time shooting on a farm, but also my first sparkler send off. I was very excited to try out some of the techniques I had learned and I think I pulled off a cute shot! I'll let you be the judge, of course, but suffice it to say, I had a great time catching up with the family after all these years and capturing another milestone in their family's history.
I hope you enjoy the sampling of images from Samantha and John's wedding!
