Megan and Daniel

Wedding photography has evolved and how! It is not about telling the family to stand together, or ask the couple to stand hand in hand, look towards the camera and give a cute smile. These things have gotten old and photography has moved on. The best part about a wedding at the Holland Marsh Wineries is there are so many wonderful possibilities for photo shoots.

Although I normally begin by creating individual portfolios of the bride and groom as they get ready, I decided to take a different route this time by clicking pictures of the couple right from the start. There were several quaint spots that were lovely backdrops for candids as well as portraits, such as balconies, sweeping staircases, wine kegs, stone fireplaces, ancient carriages, and much more. Megan looked exquisite in her off the shoulder white gown, accentuated by a glittery silver neckline while her hair was pulled off of one side and secured by a dazzling hair clip. Daniel was her knight in shining armor, who rocked his black suit! He looked dapper with a hint of playfulness penetrating through his charming demeanor.

The bridesmaids and groomsmen made a very fetching picture as well. The former group wore deep purple gowns, while the latter opted for dark grey suits – both colors looked remarkable. The couple gladly posed with their friends and family before the ceremony – it was amazing to see everyone smiling and wishing both of them happiness and joy for the rest of their loves. The ambience was brimming with cheerfulness.

The wooden décor imparted a rustic element that highlighted the overall mood. You can see the audience eagerly waiting for the couple to make their entrance. They entered confidently and took their places at the altar as the minister began the ceremony. The love radiates through when each look into the eyes of their significant other and recite the vows. Before you know it, rings were exchanged and they sealed it with a kiss.

Photo shoots were conducted with the newly weds along with the groomsmen and bridesmaids – it was done outdoors as I wanted to take advantage of the lighting at dusk, not to mention the awesome weather. Loads of fun followed as the maid of honor and best man gave their speeches, Daniel and Megan had their first dance as a married couple, everyone raised glasses to the various toasts, guests joined in on the dance floor, and of course the cake cutting.
