Hollie and Will’s Wedding, The Pavilion at Sunken Meadow (Part 1)

Will and Hollie are one of those awesome couples who just scream “fun!” You know they’re always having a good time by the way they break into robot dance moves, have secret handshakes (which involves grabbing each other’s foot), or the way they serenade each other with Kanye West cover songs. I’m talking about Will’s cover of Golddigger, of course, that will go down in wedding serenade infamy. They’re also one of those loving couples who aren’t shy about showing affection, which makes my job as a photographer that much easier.

Recently, I had a chance to photograph their wedding at The Pavilion at Sunken Meadow in Long Island, New York. On a personal note, it was a special wedding because it was the first one I photographed on the beach, something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. It was — no surprise — pretty awesome! The guests experienced, among other things, lobsters and steak on the boardwalk venue, rockin’ music from Peat Moss and the Fertilizers and a brilliant sunset that according to Will, “Yeah, we paid extra for that.”
