Bunny and Mike's Dramatic Hempstead House Wedding | Sands Point, NY | Tampa Wedding Photographer

I have known Bunny and Mike for years, and they are in a circle of friends that has many photographers in it. So it was beyond an honor that they decided to hire Tara & myself for their Hempstead House wedding in Sands Point, NY. The Hempstead House is a historic castle that has incredibly ornate and well thought out details. Everything flowed together so well as Bunny did an incredible job planning her wedding here. There weren't many surprises on the day of because Bunny and Mike left over 3 hours of portraits. I think that shows in their final images. Bunny's black dress was to die for and she rocked it so well. Thank you for hiring us to be a part of your special day. This is one of my best and favorite weddings to date.

I hope you enjoy these Hempstead House at Sands Point Preserve wedding photos as much as I did taking them.

The best memory of your wedding day: The overall memory of being able to share it with some many wonderful people. It went by so fast, so to know that all of my loved ones were there to celebrate with us and help make the day beyond special is something that always, without fail, brings a smile to my face.

What is the best advice you could share with another bride or groom to be? That if something actually went wrong the day of, there was most likely nothing I could do, and to just try to keep that in mind so I could focus on enjoying the day. 

What was the *main* reason you chose Mike Zawadzki as your wedding photographer? Well knowing you before hand did not hurt! I knew you were capable of getting the high fashion editorial aesthetic I was going for because of your background with shooting fashion. Your other wedding photos were also incredible and I loved that you always seemed to put the effort in to get unique and fun shots.

Briefly describe your wedding: Aesthetically it was a high fashion couture wedding with a gothic twist. Emotionally: best day of my life!
