LINDA & JOSEPH • JULY 24, 2010

Posted in Recent Weddings & Commitments, Wedding Reception Venues, What's New At Michael ONeill Fine Art on July 27, 2010 by moneill2

This past weekend the team at Michael ONeill Fine Art was joined by yet another guest photographer/student.  Atlanta, GA based photographer, Cindy Harter, flew in to study with myself and my crew.  Despite some serious travel issues (two cancelled flights and a seriously damaged camera lens in transit) we had a great weekend together.  Cindy went home with lots of new ideas and some great images (She’s already changed the cover wedding image on her web site home page).

We started our day at the bride’s home in West Islip, NY…a magnificent 10,000 square foot waterfront contemporary on Long Island’s Great South Bay.  After creating some wonderful portraits and playful candid images of Linda, her bridesmaids and her family we travelled to St. Joseph RC Church in Babylon, NY for the wedding ceremony.  After the nuptials we returned to the bride’s home for some formal portraits of the newlyweds and some animated pictures of their bridal party at the waterfront location.  Finally it was on to the Watermill Inn in Smithtown, NY for cocktails, dinner and dancing to the sounds of DJ Long Island Sound and MC Chris.

These are just a dozen of the near 1,000 images we created for Linda & Joe on their wedding day.  The rest of their photographs will be available on my web site for your viewing pleasure when the newlyweds return from their honeymoon.  In the meantime we invite you to view this video slideshow recap of the big day.

Thanks go out to my creative team at Michael ONeill Fine Art for their hard work in making this couple’s wedding imagery so special.  Special thanks to Linda & Joe for the privilege & pleasure of capturing your wedding memories.  You guys were so much fun to work with.  I wish you all the best in the future.
