Amy and Jake

Meet Amy and Jake! People have been asking me about photos from their Harry Potter themed wedding since the day I shot it. Their love for each other is incredible and I hope you get a glimpse of it in these wedding photos.

From NY to MI

Amy, Jake, and I had been emailing each other for almost a year as they planned their wedding. Both of them are grad students at Cornell. As undergraduates they had more scientific publications than most post-grads or even young faculty. As you would expect at any chemist’s wedding, they put on their lab coats at the ceremony and mixed two liquids to make a green solution. All the little details at Amy and Jake’s wedding had direct connections to their personalities and as the guests discovered little things at their wedding, they learned more about them as a couple. Also, keep an eye out for all the Harry Potter references at the reception.

I have this obsession with hands because they tell so many stories about us. During the ceremony, Amy and Jake turned towards their wedding guests and I loved this perspective.

The Gothic architecture of North Campus fit in perfectly with this Harry Potter themed wedding.


Yup, that is the golden snitch.
