Madeleine & Matthew
Madeleine and Matthew, first of all, looked incredible on their wedding day. Perfect dress, suits that kill, everything. They hosted their wedding at the Barns at Wesleyan Hills in Connecticut, which is very popular for obvious reasons. It's actually rare that you get a barn reception that is easy to light, but this one is a favorite of mine for that reason.
Photo nerd time! One challenge with shooting large wedding parties is it's easy to let the sky dominate the frame, since you usually have to shoot wider than normal. Sometimes that's great, but on a cloudy day you want to avoid most of the photo being taken over by a bald white gloom. This property has incredible willow trees over a pond, so you can really fill the background with color and substance, and that does the group shot a lot of favors.
The willows also helped out with a night shot that I was pumped about. Enjoy.
