Southampton Wedding Photography :: Dyana and Chris

couples Film portraits wedding

Maybe one of my favorite parts about photographing weddings, is being able to see a couple at their absolute best. It’s one of the happiest days of their lives, they’ve planned the entire day down to the last detail, and they both look absolutely gorgeous. They are surrounded by the people that they love most in the whole world, and those people are shining so much light onto them. You hear the stories of their lives, both as individuals and as a couple up to that point, and being there makes you feel like part of the story as well. You can see the goodness in both the bride and the groom reflected on the faces of their loved ones and you hear it in the speeches of their best friends. As an outsider, you learn of the ways these two people have impacted the lives of the guests, who are now there to stand with them on such an important day in their lives.

I clicked with these two from the first time we met. I always felt like we were on the same page in terms of what they wanted out of their engagement and wedding photography. I would write little suggestions and ideas of what I thought might work for them, and Dyana would write back with complete excitement and more of her own creative ideas to add onto it. Photographing their day felt easy, because we were all riding the same wave. I am beyond thrilled for these two and know that they share something amazing, and for one day, I got to be a part of it.

 

Best move I’ve ever seen performed by a groom.

Dyana and Chris added a film package to their wedding day coverage. Many of the shots above were shot on 35mm and 120mm film. There’s are a couple polaroid photos as well.

A special thanks to Xong Hang for helping me photograph Dyana and Chris’ wedding. Her input and help was invaluable to me that day. Many of the photos above are ones that she captured.

Happy Holidays
I'm not going to lie, Christmas has kind of taken a back seat this year to other things that are going on. But I still love this time of year and knowing that there is going to be a respite, from work and other things, to spend with family and friends. I like taking part in our local community's holiday activities that bring people together and I love finding little treasures for people to open on Christmas day. Favorite gift I found this year were these little stamp sets for my niece and Eliot's god-daughter. I also really love when I get to reconnect with people who's photos I've taken in the past. One of the biggest compliments is getti ...

Southampton Engagement Photography :: Kevin and Jess
This couple strikes a personal cord, because well, Kevin and Jess are good friends. I've known Kevin as long as I've known Eliot, and he even came all the way out to Oregon for our wedding. Jess is his beautiful fiance, and they met while working together on super yachts (yes the big ones, and no, not cruise ships). I was giddy when they called and asked me to do their engagement photos. It's exciting to have a little part in someones wedding experience, especially when they're good friends. They came from the east coast of Florida to spend the weekend, we'd love for them to move to the west coast. We spent an afternoon getting these: ...

Stockholm Wedding
Being able to use my camera and photograph new places and spaces is one of the biggest joys in this profession. Every time I visit a new place, I find these subtle little beauties, and I wish I had my camera on hand. I normally settle for an iPhone shot and post it up on Instagram with a chic filter and call it good. But when I get to travel for a wedding, camera in hand, it’s one of the most rewarding times in my job. This Stockholm wedding is no different. The day was filled with so many sweet little traditions and details. Alexis and Magnus clearly spent so much time refining it all and creating a day that truly reflected who they are and ...
