Autumn South Pond Farms Wedding Photography 0063

Fall Bespoke South Pond Farms Wedding Photography… It was SUCH an honour to photograph Kathryn and Ryan’s wedding this past Fall. Not only are Kathryn (or Katie, for those who know her well) and Ryan amazing people with kind hearts, but Ryan is also an old high school friend of mine (we had not been in touch for over 10 years). Having the privilege to photograph their big day was much more than shooting just anyone’s wedding. It meant that Ryan, a super creative dude, enjoyed our art and trusted us to photograph their wedding day. This was extremely encouraging. And, even though it is always an honour to photograph our clients’ weddings, the fact that Ryan and I have history since we were 13 years old makes this scenario even more awesome!

Ryan blogged our photos of his wedding months ago, but I thought I would quote a bit of what he said: “What a beautiful journey.  Katie and I have been together for over 10 years now. The past year and a half planning the wedding you’re about to see were some of the best (Katie does events professionally. Enough said).  And our wedding photos are now here. We couldn’t be happier…  The groomsmen shot their photos at Camp 30, a POW camp from WWII. The wedding was at South Pond Farms in Bethany. It’s a true gem. The video is a very special gift from my buddy Andrew Ventura who shot the wedding on 8mm film. Yeah, like on a Super 8 camera. Thank you to our families, entire bridal party and all our (gorgeous and awesome) guests.  We love you all.”

We hope you enjoy the super 8mm film that Andrew created for Ryan and Katie, which is at the bottom of this post! We thought it was great and wanted to share it along with our photographs.
