For New Yorkers used to city weddings, the Larchmont Shore Club is a breath of fresh sea air. Sitting on the shore of the Long Island Sound, the main clubhouse was built in 1906 as the private residence of Aimee Crocker, the youngest daughter of the founder of the Southern Pacific Railroad. The private club offers, photographically speaking, a little bit of everything with nautical-themed interiors and sweeping views of the waterfront. In today’s blog, I give you some tips for getting the most out of your Larchmont Shore Club wedding…come rain or shine.
The benefits of combining your rehearsal dinner and engagement portrait
Before I tell you about Rachel and Ben’s Larchmont Shore Club wedding this weekend, I need to begin with details about their New Rochelle ketubah signing and rehearsal dinner. For Rachel and Ben, engagement photos weren’t a high priority. Rather, they were more interested in photos of family friends at their rehearsal dinner. So why not combine everything into one fun photo session? Mission accomplished. In today’s blog post, I share with you photos from the day before their big day – a New Rochelle ketubah signing, rehearsal dinner, and mini portrait session all rolled into one!

If you are going to tie the knot down at City Hall, the reality is you don’t have a lot of obvious options for portraits in the area. Just walking into the Marriage Bureau office, you’ll notice you are surrounded by construction and scaffolding. While you do have locations such as the Little Wedding Garden, Foley Square, the Brooklyn Bridge, and even Chinatown, which spot is best? In today’s blog I assess all of your City Hall wedding portrait locations and let you know the pros and cons of each option from a photographer’s perspective.
Drumroll, please!….I am thrilled to announce the publication of my new website, www.KellyWilliamsCorporate.com.
