A summer camp wedding? Yes, please! I’ve photographed a number of summer camp weddings now and I think these kinds of venues are some of my favorite spots for a celebration. Casual, fun, and lots of beautiful scenery abounds for photos, it’s a great combination. This is my second time shooting at Camp Kinder Ring, a Jewish summer camp in the Hudson Valley just north of the city.
Jeremy and Sarah are both two super creative individuals and it was so fun to be a part of their celebration. We started off with photos along the lake, and then after family portraits headed in for their Ketubah signing and the bedeken. I love how vibrantly colorful their ketubah was!
One of my most favorite things about photographing Jewish weddings is all the singing and dancing, and this wedding was no exception. From the bedeken procession, through the end of the ceremony, all the way into the hora, complete with a schtick full of super talented guests; these guys brought the house down! Also, Jeremy clearly wins the award for most awesome wedding reception shoes. Those light up high tops were amazing! At the end of the afternoon, Jeremy had a special surprise for Sarah, serenading her with some fantastic singing with the band backing him up.
This wedding also had one of my favorite details ever, a drawing booth! Rather then a regular photobooth, Jeremy and Sarah utilized some talented artists to sketch out guest’s photo-booth photos for a super unique party favor. It was really cool to watch these guys draw!
Congratulations Sarah and Jeremy! Thanks so much for having me along!
