I had the pleasure of second shooting for Christina at Forever in Focus, and we had a great time! Amy and John are such a wonderful couple and theirs was one of the most moving and memorable wedding receptions I have ever photographed.

This is a shot I have been hoping to get for a while!

Amy’s bouquet was a simple but elegant grouping of beautiful cream calla lillies (one of my favorites!), tied with her “something blue” – an antique handkerchief.

Gorgeous orchids from the floral centerpieces.

Amy and John embrace during their first dance together.

The reception was held at the Renaissance Westchester Hotel in White Plains, and it is a beautiful mix of the new and the old.

Amy and John surprised their guests with the FDNY Emerald Society pipes and drums band. 40 bagpipers in full dress – kilts and all! It was just amazing – the sound, the sights, the emotions. I was nearly moved to tears by the magnitude and the energy and the love in the room surrounding Amy and John.

    That veil shot…AWESOME!!! Bet you were so glad to finally “get” it. I have never seen that before…though I just know you pulled it off better than anyone else has, either, that is, if anyone else has thought of it before. Stellar!!!!

    Love the rich, warm colors. Looks like a fun wedding to photograph!!! The guys in kilts drumming…great!!

    I love your work! My husband is in the Army and we had a small civil ceremony and plan to have a big wedding after his deployment in the Hudson Valley hopefully in Fall 2009 and are very interested in having you capture our day! We’ll be in contact soon!

    I love weddings almost as much as I love pregnancy and babies, and it is so fun to click over here and be a bit of a voyeur through your lens. I love to see the different ideas couples have.

    The pic of the bagpipers is my favorite; love the full cheek action you captured!
