Martha’s Vineyard wedding photographer Chappaquiddick

Having a wedding on an island farm perched on the hillside overlooking the Atlantic Ocean is just about as enchanting as it gets. Earlier this year, I was selected to photograph a Martha’s Vineyard wedding at the Allen Farm Sheep and Wool Company in Chilmark. I felt a connection to them from our first contact since they live in New Orleans which is my favorite city in the US. I didn’t get to meet them ahead of time in person so Skype meetings were an integral part in planning out the photography details. The one thing that stood out in my conversations with Annie was the excitement in her voice about her upcoming Martha’s Vineyard wedding and the theme she was working on. We spoke about her wedding gown that she purchased in Montréal and the theme she envisioned for her farm wedding.

Before I was set to photograph a rehearsal dinner at the Chappaquiddick “Chappy” Beach Club, I met up with a super cool couple and took the Chappy Ferry over from Edgartown on the Vineyard to the neighboring island. After a short car ride on some winding dirt roads, we reached the bride’s family’s summer home situated on a cliff with stairs that led down to the ocean edge. Annie’s entire family was so welcoming to my trusty sidekick Danielle and I. As we began the shoot, I kept in mind the challenge of photographing an engaged couple in a beautiful setting and making sure the connection between the couple doesn’t get buried by the picturesque surroundings. With Annie and Pete, they were lovey, funny, and with enthusiasm they showed me a bit of playfulness and romance. It was quite clear how much they enjoyed the surroundings of their pristine summer retreat. Stay tuned for photos of the rehearsal dinner at the Chappaquiddick Beach Club along with their Martha’s Vineyard wedding ceremony and reception at the Allen Farm. And without further ado, I present to you…

What a connection!

    They look so full of joy; you did a nice job capturing their emotions. I especially like the one of them at the base of the stairs.
