How often does a wedding photographer get to photographer a Renaissance festival themed wedding, complete with a sword fight that the photographer is actually a part of? Not very often.
I studied (and taught) historical fencing, stage combat, and sword fighting for over fifteen years, which is how I met Kate and Nate originally. When they told me about their plans to have their first dance “interrupted” by a challenge, which led to a duel, which led to a full on sword brawl that involved more and more people, including me, I was immediately sold.
Through in a mix of pagan wedding traditions, and a beautiful forest ceremony on a mountain in the Hudson Valley, and you have a recipe for a beautiful, non-traditional wedding.
Top it all off with some fireworks at the end of the night, and I don’t know how it gets any better!

Planning a Renaissance Festival or Otherwise Non-Traditional Wedding?
If you’re planning a wedding that is outside the boundaries of what some would consider ‘traditional’, I would be happy to be considered as your wedding photographer.
I have a soft spot in my heart for the offbeat, being quite the nerd myself.
