Hamptons East End Wedding Photos
There’s nothing quite like a beach wedding on a perfect summer day and evening. Being surrounded by water, Long Island is home to an amazing number of brides who’s wedding plans revolve around the sea. Some choose waterfront wedding reception venues overlooking the ocean, the Great South Bay or the Long Island Sound. Some host their wedding ceremonies and even the wedding reception itself right on the sand. In the Hamptons (Bridgehampton, Southampton, Westhampton Beach, Amagansett, East Hampton, etc) beach weddings are commonplace. I have photographed beach weddings all throughout the Hamptons and all the way out to Montauk, NY. These events have ranged from small, intimate, casual gatherings on the beach to large scale productions with air-conditioned tents being erected to handle parties of 400 or more guests. What I love most about these events is the casual, non-structured, organic atmosphere of these parties. Things happen spontaneously...not in response to some rigid caterers timetable. Even with the natural relaxed atmosphere I have seen the beach become the venue of choice for some of the most elegant and extravagant events I’ve ever attended. If you’re planning a beach wedding, large or small, casual or elaborate; give me a call. I’d love to collaborate with you on your plans for the perfect photography for your perfect beach wedding.
