A couple weeks back I had a unique opportunity to photograph a wedding that wasn’t ‘mine’. By that I mean I was helping out my good pal Robin Dini, who happened to have a wee-one on the way right around the time of Nevena and Todd’s wedding. Robin and I worked together last year a whole bunch of times, so I was honored she asked me to ‘fill in’ for her. I joined them months back on their Winter E-shoot in NYC so I wouldn’t be a total stranger, which was ton of fun. And I also got to work with Miss Eileen Broderick (who is ALSO tons of fun, I might add. ) I’m certain she AND Robin will BOTH be blogging their images from this day as well—)
so we started the day off at The Study–like maybe the coolest hotel in Fairfield County—I mean… I wanna live in the lobby—
amazing view from the Penthouse ( photoshop geek alert: this is stitched together from 3 images…)
…and groovy shoe alert–OH MY GOD. I’m oblivious to shoes ( and jewelry as well, but COME ON!!!)
the flowers, wall color and little ottoman colors were a perfect match!
the gals got SO excited!!!
…so we had to do some quick busing of the tables in the background (my first job EVER was that of a busboy/slave…) as they ordered food and i’m looking at it going--there is NO WAY to shoot her and not see fries and half-eaten sandwiches. Behind The Scenes Photo spoiler: all the food is kinda dumped on the floor under the coffee table– yes—the magic of photography.
this room is PERFECT for a first look!!
maybe my favorite shot since it’s so abstract—
a little ‘Vintage’ action on this image…
my favoritest building of all at Yale!
great little details and a GREAT golden hour outside on the building of Yale…
Had I known in advance there was going to be a bottle of 1996 DOM, I’d of taken it and run— LOL Actually it was sent by her grandma who could not attend the wedding—how sweet is THAT?
Ok, ok, I suppose I wouldn’t have stolen it—
Congrats and thank you for letting me be a part of your day. Also many thanks to the Union League Cafe who do an amazing job, serve DELICIOUS food and remember to take care of the vendors!!!
