Back in July, I traveled to New Jersey (my old home state) to photograph a wedding as a second shooter to my former college roommate! Alyssa Hurley is a wedding photographer in Lynchburg, VA, and her style is just absolutely beautiful! I am still so excited she asked me to join her for a wedding in Long Island.
Being old college roomies and fellow jersey girls, I believe we were such a natural duo on the wedding day. I loved getting the opportunity to shoot a wedding near my hometown, and even visit my brother while I was nearby!
It was a pretty overcast day, but that didn’t stop our couple from having a beautiful wedding! Christina and Kelvi had been together for nine years, so you might be able to tell in the images that the excitement and anticipation around this day was at an all-time high.
This was the first wedding I got to really take time to play with bridal details. And OH MY GOODNESS… look at this girl’s shoes! They were so classic and feminine, that I kept using them in nearly every detail shot.
Their colors truly popped, too. The bright purple and blue played so well together. Many people worry about grey, overcast, or rainy wedding days. But did you know that overcast weather makes colors even more vibrant? It’s true! And Christina and Kelvi’s wedding day proved that.
They got married at a church in Long Island, then had their wedding reception in a gorgeous ballroom right on the water! We took some photos of the happy couple in front of the harbor, with all the beautiful yachts in the background and gorgeous water. Waterfront venues just might be my new favorite thing!
Congrats, Mr. and Mrs. Polanco!! May you have a long and happy life together as husband and wife!
