Best Raphael's Vineyard 

Wedding Photographer



We love photographing weddings at Raphael's Vineyard, located at 39390 NY-25, Peconic, NY 11958.  Raphael's Vineyard has absolutely everything you could ask for in a catering hall to create beautiful, creative and stunning wedding photos. 


When we start the wedding day, I always like to start with the detail photos first. Getting creative images of the brides details such as her wedding dress, wedding bands, engagement ring and bridal bouquet are an integral part of any wedding album.  After these images are taken I like to get as many candid photos of the bride getting ready as possible.  Posed images are great, but I feel the heart and soul of any wedding day lies in the heart of the candid photos we take.  


While every wedding has it's similarities, such as getting ready photos, family photos, bridal party and couples portraits, each wedding is also totally unique, ash should be your wedding photos.  I usually like to photograph the funny bridal party photos by the vineyard.  The blue sky and green grass create a beautiful contrast that make them pop off the screen.  After we have completed the bridal party photos, depending on the size of the family, I like to come back inside the venue and do the formal family photos in the air conditioned venue by the fire place.  This allows some of the older folks to sit down in AC and relax while we are going through the various groupings that have been requested by the bride and groom.  


Candid photos are taken throughout your entire wedding day, from the getting ready section of the day to the last dance.  We truly believe that images taken in the moment really tell the story of your wedding day.
