    All these pictures are stunning, your location is right on the money for these kind of shots. living in NYC you don’t have that much privilege to do all that with a camera. I really enjoy these pictures and don’t feel bad about having too many; it’s your day and you have these memory to cherish forever.

  • Miss B

    Love the pics! You are working it!

  • Marie

    I wanted to get married at this location, but my mom insisted on a church wedding. These pics have me wishing I’d fought harder 😀 You look beautiful!

  • Pam

    These pics are fantastic! You look so beautiful!!!

  • Laura

    How long did you devote to taking portraits? We’re meeting with our photographer in a few days to set up our schedule, and I’m trying to figure out how long these things take.


    • Budget Savvy Bride

      We had about 30-45 minutes devoted to taking pics of just the two of us- I think it was plenty!! For the whole bridal party and us and family it was around 2.5 hours I think

    These photos are awesome… and you look stunning! I love the mix of rustic chic portaits, with downright glamorous model-esque shots! Looks like you were very comfortable and enjoyed yourself. Did you do portraits with your wedding party? I also echo Laura’s question of how long you set aside for photos.

    Congrats again!!
