Phil & Nicole
I've known Phil since we were freshmen in college, and I was honored when he and Nicole asked me to photograph their wedding. While one might think that being the photographer would prevent me from enjoying myself with friends, it's actually really nice to be brought in on the planning and other backstage wedding moments that in the end connect me much more deeply to the day. Fortunately, with a spectacular setting at the Glen Island Harbour Club on the water near Long Island Sound, and amazing weather, their day was absolutely perfect. Not that the two of them are prone to stress; one of the venue staff made a point to take me aside at the end of the night and tell me that Phil and Nicole were, hands down, the nicest couple he had ever worked with. One can also learn a lot about a couple by watching the dynamics on their wedding day, and it's clear how much they support and motivate each other in their everyday lives. I'm very glad I was able to be a part of a day they'll both be thinking about for a very long time.
