The Signature at West Neck Wedding

Matthew and Chelsea

Matthew and Chelsea are High school Sweethearts. Their love and patience for one another has been so evident to me throughout our time spent together, and was especially evident on their rainy wedding day. We shot a lot in the rain, and they handed it so well! Every single member of this wedding party handled the rain like a rockstar. I am so impressed with the understanding and patience of every single bridesmaid and groomsman!

With umbrellas in hand, we took cover under trees and awnings. There is a lightness about these outdoor photos that is so beautiful to me, and its all due to the rain on my lens. Seriously, you can’t plan photo effects like this!

A huge thank you to everyone who lent a hand, held an umbrella, and capped a lens for me. All hands were on deck for this wedding and I am so grateful for Matthew and Chelsea’s amazing friends and family for pulling through!
