As a wedding photographer, you never want to say you have a "favorite" venue to shoot a couple's big day at but it's hard to deny we all have places that make us a little more excited than most. Whether it's the way a sun sets at the location or the little spots you can shoot formal photos at, every photographer has places they love to work at that give you just a bit more creativity.
Allen Hill Farm in Brooklyn, Connecticut is definitely one of those for me.
From the massive two-level barn where couples have their reception to the beautiful hilltop vista where you can see what looks like an endless forest of trees, Allen Hill Farm is one of the most beautiful spots I've worked at for a rustic wedding and Kevin and Jen's September wedding at the location showed exactly why.
Kevin and Jen were married on a blistering warm early fall afternoon and were, without question, one of my most casual couples ever.
I loved watching the way these two interacted, whether it was during their super sweet engagement shoot atGillette Castle State Park in East Haddam, Connecticut back in May or during their touching first dance where Jen couldn't stop smiling.
I expected their wedding day would be a fun one where the laughter never stopped and I wasn't disappointed. It was everything this bride and groom could have asked for and much, much more. I'm just glad I was there to document it all.
And document I did ... So, if you'd like to see one of my favorite rustic weddings ever with a great couple and one of the venues I love the most, check out Kevin and Jen's day by clicking here. As always, thanks for following along and be sure to let me know what you think.
