Joy and Scott had one of the most lovely weddings I’ve had the good fortune of being a part of. When Joy first reached out in February about her elopement I was immediately excited about creating unique wedding imagery for fellow art lovers and costume collectors. Joy is a science fiction writer and a collector of fine art, most recently Kirsty Mitchell’s Wonderland series seen HERE, so we started brainstorming how to pay homage to those things. I referenced an engagement session I shot a few years ago seen HERE, which drew inspiration from René Magritte’s Son of Man, and we knew we had to recreate this with book pages at Hammond Castle (where they had already intended on exchanging vows.) So we spent the morning dismantling a few old books, taking photos around their neighborhood, and eating cupcakes, before heading off to Hammond Castle for their ceremony.
To conclude the celebration Joy and Scott sat down for a private tasting at one of their favorite restaurants in Salem, 62 Restaurant & Wine Bar and departed for Paris a few days later. Thank you so much for including me in your intimate celebration, it was an honor to be a part of.
