April 17th was the day that Scott and Angela got married. The wedding was held at Mohonk Mountain House, an amazing venue where I’ve photographed a couple times before. The views are spectacular, the architecture is so hip and every wedding detail is really well done. Scott and Ange were especially thoughtful about their day – incorporating all their favorite traditions to create a very fun and welcoming atmosphere for everyone. Ange pulled all the elements together with a cool yellow color-theme in both traditional and funky ways. It was such a fun day with some very lovely people. Here are some of my favorite images…
Unfortunately, we didn’t have the greatest weather. It was actually quite cold and threatening to rain. But the sun did peek out during the reception just long enough for us to duck out and grab a shot, and Ange was a trooper (literally, she’s a state police officer!), so we were able to get some really great moments outside before running back in to warm ourselves by the fire.
Ange is also totally brilliant. Having contracted me for seven hours of photography, we realized when we did our site viewing that, even with the getting ready time, there would be an hour left over at the end of the reception. Rather than simply exchanging the hour for prints or thank-you cards, Ange thought we might take an hour to do a faux True Romance shoot (aka. post shoot or trash the dress shoot) after the reception. It was absolutely a stroke of genius.
It allowed us to take some time to do more bridal party photos when everyone was relaxed and fed.
…and it gave me, Scott and Ange some time to really play.
Congratulations, you two! Thanks for having me there!
