Katie & Sal’s Brecknock Hall wedding took place on a beautiful spring day in late May. I was so excited for this event—located in the heart of the vineyards on the eastern end of Long Island, the venue provides a stunning backdrop for an elegant black tie affair like the one Katie & Sal had planned.
After a year of intimate weddings because of COVID (which I loved capturing in their own way), it was so nice to finally start photographing weddings with a larger guest count again. The energy and excitement present from Katie & Sal’s friends and family was extra special, since everyone could finally come out and celebrate without masks!
I especially enjoyed photographing Katie & Sal’s wedding details—Katie put a lot of effort into them! Here’s a tip if you’re interested in having your photographer use flowers when styling your details. Ask your florist for spare leftover flowers! Oftentimes there are extra flowers laying around when designing your wedding flowers and instead of throwing them out, they can include those bits for your photographer to add to your detail photographs.
In addition to capturing their beautiful wedding, I had such an amazing time photographing their snowboard engagement session at Hunter Mountain earlier in the year. Katie & Sal are both snowboarders like myself, so when they told me they were thinking about incorporating it into their session, I was so excited!
