I was introduced to Alicia and Billy by the one and only Beth Zink, frequent second shooter of Pivko Photography. She was a bridesmaid in the wedding and let Billy and Alicia know that I existed. It was a really kind gesture from Beth that ended up with us all meeting in a beer hall in New York and Billy and Alicia choosing me to capture their wedding in Long Island. I am not gonna lie there is an extra layer of pressure when you are shooting a wedding with such an experienced photographer in the wedding party!

Alicia and Billy were married at St Barnabas Church in Bellmore, and then everyone headed over to the Carlyle on the Green at Bethpage State Park. It was a beautiful venue framed with the perfect weather. We had a relaxed and punctual portrait session before partying the night away. It was just one of those days where everything flowed smoothly from one chapter to the next without any hiccups. Except perhaps that one little moment where I crashed my drone into the top of a tree and everyone there enjoyed watching it fall down hitting every other branch like a round of Plunko with a $2500 piece of equipment. Haha, sorry once again Billy and Alicia for the jarring crash, but we got the shot!

Loved working for these guys, such a fun crew around them, and they are two beautiful humans. Thankful Beth pointed them in my direction. Enjoy the wedding gallery preview below!
