It was drizzling and occasionally flat out raining for Larissa and Steven’s First Look. The mist from the sea and fog had rolled in about an hour before, leaving everything a bit hazy. Larissa turned her back to watch the boats and the sea while I went to go get Steven. I asked Steven if they needed an umbrella but with a gift in hand, he declined in favor of really savoring this bit of time on their wedding to really connect. Like 95% of my couples, they wanted a pocket of time to be alone- together. To absorb the amazing moment and be centered for more moments to come during the ceremony. And for Steven and Larissa, to have time to give each other gifts, read cards, and say things about their love without anyone watching or listening. It was just me, quietly shooting, while I heard murmurs of laughter or the shift of bodies as Steven held Larissa.
The Prallsville Mills are actually two mills that are connected to each other so you would think huge space right? Nope. It’s very intimate and perfect for Holly and Keith’s wedding. The dancing even took place in the basement where you could see the mill waters gushing and making a wonderful, calming noise.
So DC didn’t get to have all the fun- CT joined in too! Only apparently there are way more dogs in my area than I ever realized. I often whine that New Haven is not a dog city and DC is a hardcore dog city. I never see dogs out for walks or happily leaping for a tennis ball around Yale. But As soon as my couple’s starting walking their dogs in Wooster Square for their Holiday card shoot, I met more dogs than I could shake a stick at. Where are they hiding? But besides doggie adventures, we had a lot of fun. It was even a week away from Elana and Gennady’s wedding when I shot this!
