This is one of those blog posts where all I really want to say is “here, look at these wedding photos” because I don’t think words will add much to the story. From the absolute start to finish, Kim & Tom’s Arnold House wedding in Upstate New York, was jam-packed with moments. Moments that I feed off of as a documentary wedding photographer. There was a certain energy about their wedding that only elevated the beauty of their Catskills wedding venue. As you’ll see, these two are head over heels for each other, so I let their chemistry be front and center when we were shooting.
As far as the events that transpired, no one held back, not even Mother Nature. As cocktail hour was coming to a close, apocalyptic-type clouds rolled into the area super fast. We all knew it was about to go down, so I hurried Kim & Tom to the top of the hill and shot for as long as we could with an insanely dramatic sky behind them. As you’ll see below, we really did use every last second to grab those photos before literally running back inside The Arnold House.
Because their day needed any more special things to happen (#sarcasm), near the end of the reception, Tom escorted Kim from the dance floor for a surprise firework show that lit up the dark Upstate NY sky. It gave the Macy’s firework display a run for its money. Aside from the explosions, it was a blast (dad pun intended) to capture Kim’s expressions since she was not expecting this at all.
