A Full Moon Resort Wedding is an experience that I have had the pleasure of photographing several times. Even better is actually having your own wedding there, which I did! It is such a beautiful place and I am always happy to return and relive my own wedding in a small way by enjoying the magic of Full Moon with other people.
Cheryl and Charlie are a lovely couple that I got to spend the day documenting. Their wedding day ironically had similar
unfortunate weather as my own wedding. Not only could I empathize for the changes in plans that had to take place, but I had a good understanding of where to take photos that still honored the beauty of the landscape despite the weather. The rain moved their outdoor creekside ceremony to an indoor location, and luckily for them (and also for me and my wife!), marriages can occur just fine under a tent! Cheryl and Charlie’s ceremony was among the most beautiful I’ve witnessed, complete with touching vows and an engaging officiant (the bride’s brother.) After the ceremony, the weather cleared up enough for us to walk around and take some candid photos in the natural beauty that is the Catskills. Dinner and toasts gave way to lots and lots of dancing, all while my cameras and I unobtrusively snapped the night away.
Here is what Cheryl and Charlie had to say about my service (and their photos!) as per their review on The Knot:
I could not have been happier with choosing Peter as our photographer! He was always prompt with any questions/requests via email prior to the wedding. You spend a lot of time with your photographer on your wedding day (more than most guests) so you want someone to make you feel comfortable. Peter is super easy to get along with and his wife Peg, who is his assistant, was also so friendly and calming. They didn’t feel like awkward strangers with us on our day. During the wedding Peter took 1000s of shots which were beautiful and truly captured every moment of the day without ever feeling an overbearing presence of a photographer. Peter sent me the entire portfolio within 10 days of the wedding and we have gotten rave reviews of the quality. It was so important to us to have nature based photos and it is what Peter does best. I highly recommend Peter and could not be happier with what we got!
