John and Vicki had such a beautiful wedding at Shady Acres Organic Farm. I was already in love with both Shady Acres and Vicki and John (and their cute pup, Austin!) before their wedding day. But it didn’t take me long to also fall in love with their whole tribe. What an awesome group of people! I was promised a fun wedding to photograph … and they absolutely delivered.
But what I loved best was standing back and watching (and photographing!) all the love, respect, fun, and laughter amongst the families. You could really feel how important each family member and friend was at this wedding and it was truly a delight.
Vicki’s family is full of photographers … and I’m about to bestow the greatest compliment a wedding photographer can bestow (lol) … it was really so much fun shooting with them and watching them capture what I know will be amazing photos for the family, too❤
The sky threatened rain most of the afternoon and into the evening. And immediately following their ceremony, rain did fall for about 5 minutes. But then it immediately stopped and we all enjoyed the most lovely post-storm sky for the reception.
Because it’s awful to wait, here are a few photos that show what a beautiful day it was … rainstorm and all.
p.s. The DJs were AMAZING! They really got everyone dancing and brought a ton of energy to the room.
p.p.s Definitely consider visiting Shady Acres Organic Farm if you’re looking for a lovely venue that tucks everything into a smaller area. I love this farm because the people are great, the location is beautiful, and moving about throughout the property is quick and easy.
It was really hard sorting through all the fun photos I have to pick just a few for this blog post. There was just so much laughter and joy throughout the day. Which is my absolute favorite thing to capture at a wedding.
p.s. I’m booking a very limited number of intimate weddings in upstate NY and the Delaware area. I love helping people capture authentic moments from their special day. If you know someone looking for a photographer and you think I might be a good fit, please pass them along my info. I’d love to work with them : )
