If there is one thing that my home state California lacks that the East Coast has in abundance it’s old mansions. From New York to Connecticut to Rhode Island I’ve been able to work at so many gorgeous places that used to be homes to the high society. Some of my favorite spots include Castle Hill Inn, the NYIT de Seversky mansion and this gorgeous spot, the Waveny House. This beautiful property in Connecticut offers an abundance of gorgeous locations for wedding photography, and so when Amanda and Andrew asked me to photograph their wedding, I couldn’t wait to go back to this iconic spot. Amanda and Andrew pulled together such an elegant affair with a garden ceremony, candlelit dinner and dancing under a large maple tree al fresco. Amanda looked absolutely radiant in her Cinderella ballgown and Andrew just couldn’t take his eyes off her the whole night. Thank you so much to Bethany and Kristy for their help that day!
