wedding

Dalina & Whitley | 5.25.19

Dalina and Whitley’s wedding was set to an industrial background steeped in the memory of Paterson Falls as a source of power. The details and textures were almost overwhelming; as turning my lens a few feet would create a whole new composition. All this visual fodder coupled with the careful planning and soulful execution produced the following images. These two families came together and shook the century old dust off the wooden rafters. —m

Heather & Ryan | 10.19.18

Heather and Ryan’s wedding was painted with lush fall colors. You could smell the fires burning inside the centuries old stone buildings. There was a deep sense of history in the landscape and the generations of family that would come together to celebrate the bride and groom. We always love ceremonies surrounded by nature. There were even a few groundhogs in attendance. A perfect October day. —m

Sam & Meredith | 9.22.18

Sam and Meredith came to us through old friends. We really got to explore their venue, from the dim attic to the freshly cut pile of logs on the grounds. We love it when the bride and groom are up for anything! The floors shook as friends and family took the Horah into full swing, literally. We thought a few would fly off at the speeds they were moving. The sun set on a beautiful night, and the heartfelt speeches brought it all home. —m

Kara & PJ | 11.17.17

I think at this point Jess and I might be honorary McDonalds. Kara is the fourth sibling of the McDonald clan we've had the pleasure to shoot. Each of their weddings has been unique and Kara and PJ's was no exception. It was a cold, clear day in November with the Manhattan skyline as our backdrop. These two were troopers, even in the freezing cold! I think their classic taste is evident throughout these photos. As the last sibling to get married, this may be bittersweet, but I have a feeling we'll see all these familiar faces soon enough.  --m
