Rebecca + Ryan were married on an island in the middle of a lake in her parent’s backyard in Lake Placid, NY.
I know, right!?
Don’t let the term “backyard” mislead you. Check out their Cinema Highlight film and you’ll see what I mean.
This past Christmas, I had a few days to myself and wanted to get away. I found a lodge / penthouse right on Mirror Lake in Lake Placid, NY, and booked it for two nights. I took some photos of the penthouse for the owners in exchange for part of my trip, and one week later, they emailed me announcing that their daughter Rebecca was engaged!
Victoria and I drove up and photographed the rehearsal dinner and then the wedding the following day, staying in the same penthouse I’d stayed at over Christmas. The day after the wedding, Victoria and I climbed Mount Cascade, and at over 4000 feet and with 65 pounds in my pack, it was good training for Mount Rainier, which I climbed a few weeks later.
They were amazing to work with and Victoria and I felt honored to be invited into their family to capture some of the most authentic moments we’ve seen at a wedding. Enjoy.
