Booking a wedding at a new location can be a mix of inspiration and intimidation. Having worked as a wedding photographer in New England for nearly two decades, I have become acquainted with a large number of area venues and familiar with how to photograph each. With booking a new venue, I get to be creative but am faced with uncharted territory. This was the case with Garret and Jessica’s Kernwood Golf Club wedding in Salem, MA. Upon visiting the location, and speaking with the extraordinary staff, I knew I had nothing to fear. Everything was well orchestrated long before the date, and even a contingency plan for rain was so meticulously laid out that the couple had up until the very last minute to decide on having their dream outdoor ceremony, or moving it inside. Thankfully they were an adventurous couple and decided to throw caution to the wind and have the wedding of their dreams. The results are some truly beautiful and creative images that they can cherish for many more years to come.
