VENUE:Roxbury at Stratton Falls
Location:Roxbury, New York
Dress:Essence of Australia
I am continually amazed at the creativity and vast array of wedding ceremony locations up in the Catskills. I heard that for Donna & Josh’s Roxbury at Stratton Falls wedding, the spot would be unique, but once again, I was totally blown away when I arrived. There might be no bigger fan of waterfalls than me, and to be able to combine that backdrop with a Catskills wedding is pretty much tops. Oh, and sprinkle in the best time of year (Fall), you can’t go wrong.
This was an intimate Catskills wedding for Donna & Josh, which I always love documenting. As a wedding photographer, it affords me a lot more creative license to explore angles when there are less family & guests. Given that I didn’t have much room to work with at the ceremony overlook, having about a dozen people there to witness did allow me to pull in a lot of compositional variety, which I always appreciate.
Speaking of appreciating…brides that aren’t afraid to get their dresses dirty. You get it to use it, right? Like a true champ, Donna was down to venture super close to another neighboring waterfall on a bit of a slippery & unsteady hike after their ceremony. As is always the case, it was worth it. Once we wrapped up their couple portraits, we all headed to a nearby restaurant for a very October dinner. It was the perfect end to their Roxbury at Stratton Falls wedding.
