Lisa and Zach

In June, I helped my friend Aubrey Greene out with Lisa and Zach's wedding at Bittersweet Farm in Westport.  Aubrey is one of the sweetest photographers I've met, and after working with her once last year, I was excited to do so again.  Lisa and Zach got ready and did a First Look in New Bedford, and then we all headed over to Bittersweet Farms.  This wedding was on the earlier side... a day wedding, if you will... and I will say there is nothing I love more in the summertime!  It is very rare as a wedding photographer to get a Saturday night in the summer off... and so to be done with a wedding by 3:00 and be able to do stuff that night is amazing!  I mean, let's be honest, I probably just went home and watched 5 hours of SVU while cleaning my room (and by probably, I mean that's definitely what I did), but still, it was nice :)  Here are some faves from Lisa and Zach!

We found a shady spot across the street from the hotel for some guy portraits and for Lisa and Zach's First Look!

 

Waiting on his girl...

Here she comes :)

 

 

 

So here's a funny thing... I recently went on a date in New Bedford... and I know nothing there... and so I didn't think I would know the place we were going... and we pulled into the restaurant and I was all "I've taken pictures in this parking lot!"  Pete looking at me like I'm cray cray... and I pointed out the harbor mural and how we took some pictures on the side of the building... he still thought I was crazy, I think, but we worked with what we had!

 

Over to Bittersweet Farms...

 

Lisa's brother handed me what was probably one of my biggest laughs in wedding history... Lisa wanted to do the picture where the boys held her up... and somehow, Lisa's brother ended up in the mid-section... and they were almost dropping her, and Aubrey says "Ok, your hands have to be a little more towards her butt."  Her brother's face... PRICELESS.  He literally says "Are you kidding me??  Really????"  Everyone was dying.  It made my day.

Ceremony time...

A few details...

 

 

 

And what better way to end a day wedding than lawn games?  I'll admit, this is the first time I've ever seen a bride playing wiffle ball in her dress... AND I LOVED IT!  So.much.fun.

It was a great day and a great wedding.  Thanks to Aubrey for having me, and congratulations to Lisa and Zach!
