Staten Island Golf Course Wedding

As a documentary wedding photographer I love watching people live their joy. The smallest spark of connection between lovers holds up the world and finding those moments, freezing them in time is what I live for. This wedding was the epitome of two people coming together in joy and happiness. . These cuties could not stop smiling at each other and it was so obvious that they were meant to be.

We started our day near the couple’s home in Williamsburg by the water front for portraits and the first look. Then we all piled into the party bus and headed towards Staten Island for the heartfelt ceremony and a soulful reception that ignited the night. It was the first time (and hopefully not the last!) I saw shots being handed out on the dance floor and it’s probably the best idea I’ve seen this season! The party in this family spans generations which was one of my favorite parts of the night.

I shot this wedding for Lauren Spinelli and I’m so grateful I got to be a part of such a exuberant event!
