Montauk Wedding Photographer

Kasey and Matt had a gorgeous beach microwedding in Montauk during COVID-19. Venues were not open at the time of their wedding, so we used only the Montauk Lighthouse and Montauk Point State Park as the backdrop when capturing their photos! Although their reception was not at a Montauk venue (due to COVID regulations), I wanted to give you some great Montauk, and overall East End, wedding venue options, as well as some fun things to do and places to stay nearby now that everything is open again! If you're having a Montauk or East End wedding, please reach out to us! We'd love to capture your special day.
