North Fork Wedding Photographer-Nicole and Dave’s Poquatuck Park Wedding-Orient, NY-9/18/15

Nicole and Dave both grew up out here on the North Fork in Southold. It’s a pretty small town so how they ended up together is a cute story to say the least. Nicole tells it as “We’ve known each other since elementary school (we were on the same bus) but we didn’t “meet” until college. A Friday night one April I was making plans to go out with my friend Henry and my brother Jack. Before going out, Henry had run into Dave at the gas station and invited him to come along. All 3 guys were students at SUNY Maritime at the time. They were leaving soon for their Summer Sea Term so this was one of their last weekends home for a while…so I offered to drive. We went to a party on a bluff by the Sound where the bonfire was burning and the drinks were flowing. When we got home my brother ended up needing some assistance getting up the stairs from Henry and Dave. Afterward, I drove them home (Purposely dropping Henry off first so Dave would be the last one left). That’s when Dave asked me out. The rest is history! We started dating 2 weeks before Dave was going away for 45 days on a Summer Sea Term. Once he left we could only communicate via email. In one of his emails he had told me to look up the lyrics to “Faithfully” because he thought they really spoke to our relationship. He was right. “Being apart ain’t easy on this love affair. Two strangers learn to fall in love again.” Even after 7 years it’s still tough when he goes away…but we get to fall in love all over again every 4 months (how lucky are we?!)”. Yes I agree this is a great love story for sure!
On September 19th, Nicole and Dave finally got to celebrate their love in front of all of their closest family and friends at their family church, St. Patrick’s in Southold. Nicole looked absolutely stunning! The day was filled with everything the North Fork offers. They incorporated the things that make them who they are like boating, seafood and the bay!  The food was amazing thanks to Creative Courses CateringSouthold Fish Market and Rachel Cronemeyer. They danced the night away to music by Scratch Weddings in a tent decorated with gorgeous flowers by the local Salt Air Farm.
A big big thank you to my talented and sweet friend Sebastian for coming all the way from Staten Island to second shoot this wonderful wedding with me! He’s pretty amazing! Here are a few of my favorites to share:

North Fork Wedding Photographer-Samantha and Pj’s Salt Air Farm Wedding-New Suffolk, NY-9/12/15

Samantha may have been one of the most excited and happy brides I have ever been around. She gleamed the entire day of pure happiness and it was such a joy to witness. During the first look Pj was wowed when he saw just how gorgeous she looked as she tapped him on the back to let him know she was there. It was so very sweet. They chose the beautiful Salt Air Farm in New Suffolk, NY to be where they celebrated their love together with their closest family and friends eating delicious local food items created by Moriches Catering and Design, yummy pies from the amazing Briermere Farms and just crazy dancing the night away to the music by Tommy Tunes.

Here is a little bit about their love story told by Samantha. “We originally met in January 2009 at a mutual friends birthday but actually didn’t go on our first date until August 2012.  Our first date was the perfect combination of romance and wild laughter.  It started with a horrible rain storm where we both showed up at a romantic little italian restaurant in NYC drenched from the rain.  PJ will say his favorite part of the night is when he asked me what my favorite restaurant was and I replied “Chipotle”.  He proceed to laugh and then rephrased his question to elude to more of a sit-down restaurant that was my favorite.  I replied with “Ohhhhh…then it would be Red Lobster”, he smiled and laughed because he thought that was adorable.  The night started at a nice restaurant and we finished it with mojitos at a dive cuban bar which is where my favorite part happened.  We sat up at the bar and my stool was a little far from him so he leaned over and pulled me close to him.  Our love story from that day has been the greatest mix of love, laughter, food, travel and most importantly just the two of us enjoying this crazy thing called life together.”

I also need to give a big shout out to my talented friend Caroline for coming all the way from Austin, TX to shoot with me. It was an absolute pleasure working together! Here are a few of my favorites to share from their day:

North Fork Wedding Photographer-Kaleigh and Vincent’s Timber Point Mansion Wedding Sneak Peek

I have been extremely lucky to have gotten the chance to get to know Kaleigh and Vincent better than a lot of my brides and grooms. We spent a lot of time together talking and getting to know each other on our drive to New York City for their Engagement Session. They are smart, sweet, friendly, hard working and overall amazing people with hearts of gold. This was just confirmed even more this past Sunday while I photographed their Wedding. Watching them with their family and friends and how they enjoy each other was such a joy to witness. This wedding helped confirm the importance of what my job as a wedding photographer means to not only the bride and groom but everyone that is involved in their lives as well. Working side by side with Bilski Productions was also great fun! Here is a special Sneak Peek from their gorgeous wedding:
