Enchanted Dusty Blue Wedding | The Wainwright House | Rye, New York


filed in

When I first started in the photography business, I was worried that I would be lonley. After all, you don’t really have co-workers like you do in a traditional setting. However, I was quickly surprised at how wonderful other photographers and creatives are that I’ve met. They’ve become a rock for me in both my personal and professional life, and I don’t know what I would do without them. This positive environment really started when I joined my local chapter of the Rising Tide Society (with the motto, “A Rising Tide Lifts All Boats.”) Meaning, that we are all in this together; your success is my success. It makes perfect sense too, because I can’t photograph every wedding, engagement or portrait session, and one of my friends might just be the perfect fit. Each year, our group comes together to photograph a huge styled shoot. This year, I jumped on the planning and styling bandwagon with my dear friend, Kristina (Kristina Staal Photography) and my old pals at Jack & Grace Events (remember the styled shoot on the mountain in Beacon?). I was able to secure the stunning and historic Wainwright House for our Enchanted Dusty Blue wedding shoot and I’m still pinching myself to have been able to photograph such beauty.

Enter phenomenal vendors such as Gather and Lounge, Carrie Wilcox Floral Design, Coppola Creative, Meredith Hayman, Makeup Artist, Melissa Scrofani of Westchester Hair and Makeup, A Little Something White Bridal Couture featuring Kelly Faetanini’s Star gown in blue, vow books from Elmo Paperstories (donated by Jessica Haley Bridal) and a custom cake from Palmer’s Bakery.  Without them, this shoot literally could not have happened. I thank each and every one of them for donating their time and creativity,  adding to the beauty of this wonderful day.
