Sofya and Alex’s wedding marked my first time working at the Palace at Somerset Park in Somerset, New Jersey. I was immediately taken with the imposing white building and perfectly manicured lawns. I was further thrilled to work with the incredibly sweet event staff there, as well as Alwyn of Kiss the Bride Films, one of my favorite local cinematographers. Alwyn is sweetness and light, a fantastic woman and a wonderful filmmaker. It is always a delight to work alongside a cinematographer who shares my vision for the day and my approach to shooting. Alwyn does beautiful work, as does the entire team at Kiss the Bride Films.
Sofya and Alex are simply precious. Sofya is a tiny, charming sweetheart and Alex clearly loves her with his whole heart. Together since high school, these two are the real deal.
Sofya and Alex, thank you. Thank you for trusting me that it was a good idea to get ready in an empty ballroom, that seeing each other for the first time in a dark corner would result in something beautiful, and that stepping back outside for just a few more portraits would be worth it. I appreciate your time and your dedication to making beautiful images. Most of all I thank you for being your sweet, kind, sunny selves!
