Amanda and Brian, Backyard wedding in Barnstable... by Abby Lorenz

I've known Amanda for years. She's the artistic genius behind several of my tattoos (as is the pretty lady in the yellow dress also pictured below), and we've grown to be friends over the years. Her artwork is brilliant and the skill with which she executes her craft is beyond. I can't explain it. You just have to see. So imagine how honored I felt when this amazing woman who's artwork and talent I was already in awe of, asked me to photograph her wedding. It's such an honor for ANYONE to ask me to be their photographer--but when it's a friend and fellow artist it's on another level. I'm so thrilled I got to be there for Amanda's wedding to Brian. I didn't know Brian all that well until their wedding in July--but hearing the words they exchanged during their ceremony, I got to see the incredible connection and passion these two have for each other. They're profoundly in love and deeply connected--but clearly have so much fun being goofballs together at the same time. This day was such a joy and I'm so grateful I got to create something for Amanda and Brian. 

Thanks, guys. This ones for you: 

Josh and Emily and Stonover Farm, Lenox, MA by Abby Lorenz

WHAT A DAY we had with Josh and Emily at Stonover Farm in Lenox, MA last month! I awoke that morning in my hotel room to a beautiful romantic cloudy day...which within a couple of hours had turned into a full on downpour with thunder and lightning. But like some kind of wedding day magic, the rain stopped, but left behind a beautiful slate gray sky casting a perfect soft box of glowing light all over this gorgeous rustic but elegant Berkshires wedding. Emily and Josh planned this amazing day and the love was absolutely palpable amongst their friends and family. 

HUGE thanks to my amazing second photographer on this one, Masao Okano!
