I’m pretty sure that the Hamptons has a magical effect on just about everyone who visits. From the moment Gerald & I first set eyes upon the easternmost point of Long Island, we began making plans to come back. So it was quite fortuitous that just one year later, we were invited back to photograph Megan and Stephen’s wedding in Montauk & Amagansett, NY.
We couldn’t have been more thrilled to be working with Megan & Stephen – from the outset, they told us that they loved out natural, candid style and wanted us to capture the essence of the Hamptons and what it means to them as a place of inspiration and weekend retreat from their busy Manhattan lives. With this in mind, we began by capturing Megan getting ready at their home, then we headed to the First Presbyterian Church of Amagansett for their ceremony. Afterwards, we headed to one of their favorite places, Atlantic Ave. Beach for their family and couple portraits (which are stunning!), then we all made our way out to the Montauk Yacht Club & Resort for their reception.
The entire weekend was full of fun and laughter (just wait till you see the “napkinheads” and the Tyrone Smith Revue), and family from all over the country came to share in the occasion. Jill Gordon and her team did a wonderful job coordinating Megan & Stephen’s day, and I couldn’t have imagined a more perfect celebration for them.
Megan & Stephen, thank you for entrusting us with your memories and for being the kind, generous people that you are. We thoroughly enjoyed working with you and hope to see you the next time we are in the Hamptons. In the meantime, enjoy your photos!
