As a nature lover I especially love photographing the beautiful scenery as a backdrop to North Fork weddings.
This wedding photo was taken in Cutchogue, the heart of Long Island wine country; and it must be one of the most scenic spots on the North Fork.
It also happens to be the backyard of this bride and groom and one of their requests was to have a portrait taken against this breathtaking view.
Whether you are planning a North Fork wedding in a backyard, vineyard, barn, farm, country club or mansion you will be surrounded by rustic and natural beauty that surrounds this beloved area of Long Island.
As a nature lover I especially love photographing the beautiful scenery as a backdrop a wedding out on the North Fork.
Furthermore, your guests can plan a weekend getaway out of your wedding and enjoy all the unique charm that the North Fork is famous for. And Cutchogue has many well know vineyards in the heart of Long Island wine country.
If you want to plan a wedding that is off the beaten path of typical Long Island catering halls, consider the many options that the North Fork has to offer to host your wedding. And in the years to come, you can revisit the North Fork for a day trip, your Anniversary or a long weekend which will allow you to fondly reminisce about your wedding day.
Backyard weddings on the Eastern End of Long Island are quite popular and I love photographing them.
Many times, couples plan a mini destination wedding on the North Fork at a relative’s home or summer cottage. If you are a couple from New York, it is like having a destination wedding without having to get on a plane.
Here is a perfect example of when a prospective client will ask me, "Have you ever photographed a wedding at my venue before?"
I obviously could not have photographed a wedding in this backyard before.
Backyard weddings happen once for a specific client.
What does matter, when hiring a photographer is selecting one that has experience and lighting skills. Here, using my lighting assistant to hold my strobe allowed me to retain the color/detail in the water and sky and illuminate the bride and groom too. Using my Nikon 14-24mm wide angle lens allowed me to capture this amazing view and perspective of this bride and groom's wedding location.
I love the North Fork and I hope that you choose me to photograph your wedding.
