Nissequogue Golf Club groom getting ready

Romantic wedding at Nissequogue Golf Club in Saint James, NY

The moments before the wedding are full of nerves and excitement.  As the Groom gets ready for the wedding, he is just as anxious as the bride. He fumbles with the cufflinks and tie, jokes with his friends, nervously anticipating seeing his Bride for the first time.  We love to be able to document these moments. This is the story-telling aspect of wedding photography that I love.

Dan got dressed in the spacious room at Nissequogue Golf Club.  There was plenty of lovely window making it possible to document in a very unobtrusive manor.  He was very handsome and ready to see Janine!

I chose to show this image in black and white as opposed to color allowing the viewer to focus on the emotion within the image and not the color of the room.

Nissequogue is a small village on Long Island. The setting of the Nissequogue Golf Club is reminiscent of an old grand estate- ideal for the elegant style of this couple.  


This stately mansion offers the perfect setting for an intimate wedding reception. Nissequogue Golf Club in Saint James, NY is a private club hosting exclusive events in a scenic setting  overlooking the Nissequogue River.  

Location: Nissequogue Golf Club, 21 Golf Club Rd, St James, NY 11780.
