NYC elopement photographer10.14.2014

ross and louise are from Scotland, but have been living in NYC the past few years.  They’re about to return to the UK but wanted to wind up their time in NY on an incredibly high note by getting themselves all gussied up and hitched down at city hall.  It was pretty amazing to get to be their only witness and cruise around SoHo and Dumbo for portraits of the two of them.  Their happiness was completely contagious and I really loved being a small part of their day… right down to sharing a celebratory beer with them after all our picture taking was wrapped…2014-10-14_0001 2014-10-14_0002 2014-10-14_0003 2014-10-14_0004 2014-10-14_0005 2014-10-14_0006 2014-10-14_0007 2014-10-14_0008 2014-10-14_0009 2014-10-14_0010 2014-10-14_0011 2014-10-14_0012 2014-10-14_0013 2014-10-14_0014 2014-10-14_0015 2014-10-14_0016 2014-10-14_0017 2014-10-14_0018 2014-10-14_0019 2014-10-14_0020 2014-10-14_0021 2014-10-14_0022 2014-10-14_0023 2014-10-14_0024 2014-10-14_0025 2014-10-14_0026

Connecticut Wedding Photographer10.07.2014

From the minute I first heard from Rafe + Caitlin I knew that their wedding was going to be one of a kind…  They sent me a long intro email telling me all about themselves, how they met, their amazing proposal story + included all kinds of photos of the two of them + their friends + family.  The last line included that :

“Community, nature, family, ancestry, food, kids, birds, herbs and music are very important to us.”  Their wedding lovingly included all those elements + more.

Rafe + Caitlin both work at the Farm School in Athol, MA.

The Farm School is a sustainable, diversified farm that promotes a learning model based on traditional family farms in New England. Caitlin told me : “We have 12 acres of veggies, a beef herd, a dairy herd, sheep, goats, pigs and chickens. The Visiting Schools program (which Rafe now directs) brings 2,000 urban children a year to the farm on 3 day field trip with their class to learn about physical work and where their food comes from. The Adult Learn to Farm Program (where I work) brings 16 adults looking to shift their careers to sustainable agriculture to the farm for a full year and combines academic study with experience based work education and runs a veg and meat production business that feeds about 150 families in Cambridge. We drive tractors, chop wood, make yogurt, move cows, and grow a lot of delicious food.”

Caitlin’s brother is the Creative Director of Simon Miller Jeans + hand dyed indigo was a huge theme throughout the wedding day.

I’ll let the photos tell the rest, but this was definitely the kind of day I felt so completely honored to be apart of.  I hope the photos do it some small justice.  Here they are.
