natalie + yves wedding at st. mary's church in new haven + the great river country club in milford





Last Saturday I shot the most amazing wedding- maybe you remember this couple? The cloud umbrella, can I hold you closer couple? That would be Yves and Natalie Georges, the most emotional and loving pair! No matter what happened throughout the day they were so kind and gentle with each other and so happy just to be near one another. Their son is also the cutest little guy ever, I couldn't keep my camera off of him! The ceremony was at St. Mary's in New Haven, a very old beautiful church with incredible architecture with the reception at the Great River Golf Club in Milford. The staff there (hi Jennifer & Karen!) were so super accommodating and wonderful to work with- I have a few more weddings there this year and I can't wait to go back and work with them again! They got a big kick out of me lying on the ground AFTER IT RAINED to get a cool angle of the clock tower! The DJ, oh the DJ. He was AWESOME. DJ Spynfo, to be exact! He played the most diverse music- I was dancing the whole reception, while shooting of course! I am sure I made more than a few people laugh watching the 'dancing photographer!' I just could not help myself. The wonderfully talented Matthew J. Wagner shot with me and kept me going with his boundless energy and ideas. He even brought his laptop and did a slide show for me at the reception, something that I am now seriously considering doing on a more regular basis...more on that later!
