Flowerfields Wedding Photographer
We have photographed many weddings at Flowerfields Catering Hall. From the moment you enter their grand entrance, you immediately feel like you are not just another bride and groom, you feel like you are family. When we start our wedding photos, we like to start to photograph from the front of the venue to the back.
When you think, front of Flowerfields Catering Hall in St. James, most people think, the entrance. Not us, we like to start your photo session in almost the drive way, where the sign for Flower Fields is. Why may ask why? Well because the venue is so large, you can shoot the same location over and over from different vantage points and get totally different wedding images. They have a nice paved tree lined walk way that makes for great walking photos, where you are not sinking into the grass. I love this type of wedding photo because it is more natural and give a nice candid look. I then to walk under the large trees, near the fountain. The reason for this is, there are not many times you can get totally engulfed in the foliage and the tree line in the right conditions make for really magical wedding photos.
As you make your way towards the actual entrance of Flower Fields Catering Hall, on the left hand side, they have a gazebo. This can sometimes make for interesting photos. However, I typically steer clear of this because 90% of the wedding photographers that shoot at this venue do a good portion of their family photos and fun bridal party photos here. When you hire my studio, I want to give you something that is different and better then the typical wedding photographer studio. I want to give you beautiful, different and unique wedding photos. I love their interesting seating area in the front, they have cool couches and mirrors that can make for some cool photos of the newlyweds.
Indoor Wedding Photos at Flowerfields Catering Hall in St. James NY
When I can, I always like to use the unique green house esk interior of Flowerfields. The pond and bridge make a delightful backdrop for any traditional formal family photo shoot. If I have enough time in the day, I like to try to use the reflection of the pond to get a creative photo or two of the bride & groom.
The interior also makes for a great ceremony space in case of bad weather conditions. That is a feature that most Long Island venues do not have. We have photographed countless weddings here with great success.
Outdoor Wedding Images at Flower Fields
As we make our way to the actual grounds of this beautiful venue, we now have a splendid view of a pond with a fountain, a bridge leading to a delightful outdoor ceremony space, and if you travel on the side of the venue, a beautiful little vineyard space with a nice open area.
Whenever I get the chance, I love to do my fun bridal party photos outdoors near the pond. It makes for great landscape photos, as well as interesting portrait shots. I love capturing the bridal party being silly, having a good time and just enjoying being together on this joyous day. Many photographers over look the power of the bridal party. Being a fun Long Island Wedding Photographer, we love capturing what it was really like to be at your wedding. Silly moments, candid photos are the heart and soul of a wedding day.
This venue really does have it all. From open areas to an indoor ceremony space that is to die for, what else could you really ask for?
