Karen and Thomas // Verace // Long Island Wedding// Offbeat Bride Wedding// Islip Wedding

Kis·met [ kíz mèt ] Definition, fate: fate or destiny.

This is the word I use for these two.  Everything came together so smoothly.  From their engagement session to their wedding, if they willed it it came.

When Karen and I exchanged emails and she let me know that she and Thomas were UP! the movie fans and wanted that theme for their shoot I knew the exact location we should go to…when I showed up at their wedding venue and saw a little piece of magic across the street I couldn’t help but ask them to “go on an adventure” with me 🙂

But first, the first glance…Thomas’ reaction was like the best thing since apple pie

And the magic…I could not believe that this “house” (it’s actually office space) was open to us!  And right across the street!!  Fortunately for us Verace owns the property…seriously kismet.long island wedding photographer_476 long island wedding photographer_477

We gathered the bridal party for a few quick poses.

Can we say these two were up for anything I asked them?  Um, yes

  1. Amazing photography, so natural. Everyone looks so happy and comfortable, and your ability to capture natural light is awe-inspiring. If you’re looking to join some Photographer Trade Groups, let me know. You’re definitely awesome enough and they could learn a lot from you.

  2. especially love the reaction of the couple of their first look! Colors are so pretty here. Appears to be a lovely intimate wedding. Great job!
