In the times of Covid, some of my couples were married twice. Some of my couples looked at each other and said, "Yeah, I like you enough to do this again, but this time with my friends and family." Kristen and Andrew's love story might have had a rough start, but boy did the wait pay off. Instead of getting married in the UK as they originally planned; they decided to have their second wedding on my home turf at the Lake Mohawk Country Club in Sparta, New Jersey.
Lake Mohawk has this really awesome bridal suite at the top of the tower, with a lot of natural light and plenty of great set ups for getting ready. Kristen's natural beauty accompanied by the ambient light made my job a piece of cake. We had oodles of time to grab these shots so all of us were calm, cool, and vibing. I can't stress enough how the getting ready portion of the day sets us up for success.
After everybody got into their Sunday best, I took some portraits of Kristen with her friends and family. The pier right outside had the perfect overcast of light, and plenty of depth to work with. Normally the pier is super busy, but luckily we mostly had it to ourselves. Give me a cloudy day, anyday people. I know everyone loves a sunset shot, but come on...how perfect are these photos? Obsessed.
It was time to meet up with Andrew for the first look. As soon as he turned around he immediately gave her a kiss...because how could he not? A stunning bride has that affect. Finally with the two parties combined, we grabbed a few sets with the whole crew and the couple before the guests started to arrive for the ceremony.
