Stephanie & Matt: A Zorzino Vineyard Wedding

Next up is Stephanie and Matt’s wedding at Zorvino Vineyards. The weekend before I was also at Zorvino for Heather and Dan’s wedding. As it turns out, Stephanie and Heather know each other, but we only found that out after I photographed Heather’s engagement session… small world! I hadn’t been to Zorvino in years, and now I was back for the second weekend in a row. Kinda cool, I think. I first met Stephanie and Matt about 14 months prior to their wedding. I next met them about a six week prior to their wedding when they modeled for a workshop I put on in Portsmouth. Both instances left me very excited for their wedding! It was a beautiful day at the Vineyard, perfect for their outdoor ceremony. I joined Stephanie as she prepared at the Vineyard, while my Mike was over at their home with Matt and his groomsmen. We all met up at the vineyard for the ceremony, with highlights of Stephanie’s brother playing her processional music and man laughs all around. Following, we  took portraits in the vineyard and then headed inside for the reception. The party rocked and the energy was high. We managed to sneak out a couple of times for a few more portraits — which to me is AWESOME… we get to add a bunch of variety to the collection — once during sunset (though there wasn’t really one to speak of) and again late in the evening. This second time produced some of my favorites from the season… very dramatic lighting in the Vineyard’s wine room! Every part of the day was perfect, and I am very excited to share a few of my favorite images below…

Thank you Stephanie and Matt for allowing me to join you for the day. And thanks also to Mike Duval for shooting with me. Great work also by the following:
