I was super excited for Brittany and Andrei’s wedding even during our initial meeting. We discussed all sorts of details about their Locust Grove Poughkeepsie wedding. They are such fun and genuine people I knew their wedding would be amazing. After getting to know them a bit better during their engagement session I was even more excited!
Their wedding took place at Locust Grove in Poughkeepsie NY. It’s one of my favorite places to photograph Hudson Valley weddings because of the immense natural beauty there, the sprawling grounds, and all of its history. Some people may not know that Samuel Morse (whose house is at Locust Grove) was one of the founders of American photography. He learned the daguerreotype process directly from Louis Daguerre in France. He then took what he learned to America and taught the process to acclaimed photographers such as Matthew Brady (whose photographs of the civil war are an amazing document of the time).
I had such a great time documenting Brittany and Andrei’s wedding. It was such an honor (as it always is!) to be around such genuine and fun people in love!
Oh and the amazing flowers bouquets were created by the talented folks at A Night In Bloom. Check them out!
