Hermitage Hill Farm Wedding

  • Manny + Alison | Part II

about shooting a friend’s wedding is that you get to REALLY be a part of the experience. When you go to a friend’s wedding, you normally only get to say hello at the reception and give them a big hug… but when you’re photographing a friend’s wedding… you get to be a part of the whole wedding day and that is such an honor. I got to help Ali and her wonderful bridemaids set up reception details (heaven for me!), I was there when she was getting her hair done, I watched her see her husband for the first time on her wedding day and I got to capture their first moments as “Husband and Wife!” after the walked out of the church. You see what I mean? Such a privilege.

It is a lot of work to shoot a wedding where you know almost all of the guests and you really just want to sit down and talk to them the whole time…. but I wouldn’t trade my job for anything. I loved being there with Michael and saving bits and pieces of Alison and Manny’s wedding day for them to remember! …. and let me just say… they have a LOT of bits and pieces to go through when they get back from Jamaica! Very exciting!


Alison and Manny had a fabulous wedding day. They were surrounded by so many people that love them and support them.  The weather held up and we even ended their portraits with some SUNSHINE! Imagine that! The reception was laid back, country style and SO them. I loved it. Mason jars and burlap!! I can’t wait for you to see her details!  Enjoy this last installment of their wedding images and be sure to watch their slideshow for even MORE special moments from their day! (Link at the bottom)
