Jessica & Tony – Wedding at the Kontokosta Winery

long island wedding photographer

Short version: I don’t get rained on.

Long version: I believe in the power of positive thinking. When I meet with clients, at some point during the consultation the question of rain comes up. My answer and always with a straight face is, “I don’t get rained on, so don’t worry about that.” It’s been a running joke of mine for as long as I can remember. I’ve driven through downpours on the way to the bride’s getting ready location only to have it stop when I get there. I’ve had it rain 2 minutes after finishing outdoor photos, with everyone having already moved on to the indoor reception. Rain had never affected any of my weddings….until now.

The forecast for Jessica and Tony’s wedding day was not a good one. There was a 100% chance of rain. I thought to myself as I drove through yet another downpour, “This is it, I might get rained on today.” I met up with Jessica and Tony at a small beach out in Southhold. I got there early and it was still raining. As soon as they pulled up, the rain stopped. Coincidence? We did some shooting on the beach and as we left, it started to rain again. At that point, we went to a covered location that I spotted the day before (the shot above was taken there). We left that location and headed to the winery. You won’t believe what happened….it stopped raining again. Coincidence? We were able to take photos in the vineyard, family photos and some more portraits on the bluff overlooking the Long Island Sound. As soon we went indoors for their cocktail hour, it started to pour. I’m talking cats and dogs here. It got so bad that there was no way the outdoor ceremony they planned could be held outdoors. Then something strange happened….it stopped raining. There was even a rainbow! Coincidence? I don’t think so…

In case you didn’t feel like reading all of that, the moral of this story: I don’t get rained on….and neither do my clients.

These are truly the most beautiful wedding photos I have ever seen! Doesn’t hurt that the beautiful bride and handsome groom look happier than anyone I’ve ever seen getting married, and the location was stunning.

Allyson and Jason – Wedding at the Crescent Beach Club

long island wedding photographer

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of shooting Allyson and Jason’s wedding at the Crescent Beach Club in Bayville, NY, which is located on Long Island’s North Shore. After travelling to and from Savannah, GA for my last wedding, I figured I was done with the hazy, hot and humid conditions I dealt with down there. Yeah right. Mother Nature cranked up the heat and humidity big time for these guys…..and they did not miss a beat.  This wedding was a torrid affair from start to finish, with some particularly sizzling action on the dance floor.
