How To Elope: Starring Gina & Mike. Everything you hope for in a Long Island elopement came together for them because of them. Gina & Mike just wanted to hit the best possible spots for their portraits as well as their ceremony. We really built in the freedom to adventure around Long Island all day taking advantage of the flexibility that an elopement allows you. On top of that, there was endless laughter and all of the beautiful intimacy you could hope for. This was a total team effort in planning their day and it was an honor being their New York elopement photographer.
I suggested two of my favorite places on Long Island for their elopement portraits and ceremony and they were immediately on board. First we hit what I consider to be one of the greatest hidden gems on the entire island. An abandoned estate in the middle of a glorious forest. Then we drove to the south shore in search for the perfect ceremony location at a more private area of Jones Beach. They brought the trust and I brought the cameras. I think we made some magic together during their New York elopement.
