LIBERTY HOUSE WEDDING PHOTOS : BRITTANY + BRIAN

Liberty House Wedding Photos - Amy Rizzuto Photography-1

Three, two, one, click.  The photo booth machine counted down, giving just enough time for Brittany and Brian to strike a new pose before the next photo was taken. Ever since they can remember, Brittany and Brian have made it a point to hop into old photo booths to document their love story.  This time was a little different.  Just before the last photo snapped, Brian pulled out a gorgeous engagement ring and asked Brittany to marry him!  Overwhelmed with joy, Brittany immediately said YES as this sweet moment was forever documented on film.

This past weekend, Brittany and Brian promised to spend forever together in a beautiful ceremony in front of their family and friends.  Once they were officially “husband and wife”, we headed to the Liberty House for some gorgeous portraits along the water and their romantic reception overlooking the twinkling lights of the Manhattan skyline.  Brittany’s smile lit up the entire room as she and Brian entered the party to resounding cheers, and Brian’s dance moves kept guests on the floor all night!  There is no doubt this is an evening they will always remember as an incredible beginning to the next chapter in their lives, and I can’t wait to share so many of my favorite moments from their day below.

MALLARD ISLAND YACHT CLUB WEDDING : JEN + BILL

Mallard Island Yacht Club Wedding Photos - Amy Rizzuto Photography-1

The bridal suite was abuzz with happy and excited chatter on that warm September day. Girls in floral pink robes sipped on champagne as the finishing touches to their hair and makeup were applied. Joy radiated from Jen as she looked around. Surrounded by her closest friends, she couldn’t imagine a more perfect beginning to this special day.

After spending a laid back morning in the grooms shack with the guys, Bill made the long walk out to the end of the wooden dock, the place where he would see Jen for the first time. He couldn’t believe the day had finally arrived where he would marry the carefree girl he fell in love with in that photography class so many years ago. Excitement built as he heard the tiny clicks of Jen’s heels making their way towards him, her long veil blowing silently in the wind. Turning around, a huge smile spread across Bill’s face at the sight of his gorgeous bride. In that moment, he felt like the luckiest man in the world.

A few happy tears, lots of laughter, and congratulatory cheers of joy followed in the couples’s romantic ceremony in an open air chapel on the water. Officially husband and wife, Jen and Bill spent the rest of the evening wrapped in each other’s arms, dancing the night away with their family and friends. Their Mallard Island Yacht Club wedding was one for the books, and I can’t wait to share many of the emotional and beautiful moments from their day below.

Jen actually made all the bouquets herself, attaching a photo of her father to her own bouquet.  They were a labor of love and they came together beautifully!

LONGWOOD GARDENS ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS : YENY + WON HO

Longwood Gardens Engagement Photos - Amy Rizzuto Photography-1

It was an absolutely perfect day for a stroll around Longwood Gardens.  The sun danced off the rustling leaves and flowers as spring turned into summer.  Yeny and Won Ho reminisced about the past seven years they had spent together and a day much colder than this one, New Years Eve 2013.  This was the day Won Ho asked Yeny to be his wife!  These two love birds will be tying the knot next month and I couldn’t be more excited to capture their beautiful day.  For now, enjoy a little peek into their love story through their romantic Longwood Gardens engagement photos below.

BEHIND THE SCENES : AMY RIZZUTO PHOTOGRAPHY

NYC Wedding Photographer - Amy Rizzuto Photography-1

My 2015 wedding season kicks off NEXT WEEK and I couldn’t be more excited!  It doesn’t get much better than spending the entire day celebrating and capturing the love of a sweet bride and groom and their families. Before jumping into my first wedding this spring, I wanted to take a moment to remember so many of the fun times from 2014.  That’s right!  Today we are going to take a behind the scenes look at Amy Rizzuto Photography.  Grab an ice coffee, and hop on for the ride.

NYC Wedding Photographer - Amy Rizzuto Photography-2

I usually start each wedding with a big breakfast, huge smile, and a prayer for the couple and their marriage, along with my creativity throughout the day!

As you get further into this post, you will realize I have a thing for veils.  Just call me Amy the veil charmer!

My hope is that you don’t see me during the ceremony.  Even though it is a beast, the 70-200mm is my favorite lens for capturing those sweet, intimate moments while being discrete.

Mekina and I usually tag team the first kiss and the processional.  I get in close with the 70-200mm, capturing the joyful emotion, while Mekina shoots with the 35mm, documenting more of the scene.  TEAMWORK!

CHARLOTTE CITY CLUB WEDDING : KASEY + JAMES

Charlotte City Club Wedding Photos - Amy Rizzuto Photography-1

It was a sunny summer day in Charlotte, North Carolina, the type of day brides dream about for their wedding day!  Kasey was all smiles as she spent the morning getting ready with her bridesmaids.  She couldn’t wait for the moment she would see James for the first time, walking down the aisle of the church where her parents committed to spend their lives together so many years before.  Arm in arm with her dad, Kasey looked absolutely radiant as she made her way towards the man she had fallen in love with, the stained glass windows castings glimmers of rainbow light around her.  There were no tears on James’ cheeks, just a huge smile from the moment he locked eyes with his bride, to their celebratory walk back down the aisle as husband and wife!  The beauty of this very special ceremony was a joy to witness, and I feel blessed to have been there to capture such an important moment in this sweet couple’s lives, the moment they began their journey together.

That evening, Kasey and James danced the night away at the Charlotte City Club with their family and friends!  The views of the city around them were breathtaking, and it was obvious to everyone in attendance that Kasey and James were on top of the world.  I hope you enjoy reliving a few of my favorite moments from this incredible day below.:)
