Jaclyn + Paul - Summer Wedding at Lippincott Manor
Everyone meet Jaclyn + Paul. These adorable lovebirds were married on one of hottest and most humid days of 2016 but that did not stop a single soul from celebrating their love to the fullest.
We are huge supporters of meeting someone in a fleeting moment and just knowing that there is something serious and special there, only to have that tested by life circumstance. (When Brian and I met he was leaving for his job back in Florida just a week and a half later.) When Jaclyn and Paul met he was leaving very shortly to California to return to his military duty with the Marines. From here they had a long distance relationship until he could return to the East Coast.
On their wedding day you could feel the happiness and “finally!” in the air – their first day of marriage was a culmination of all they had been through over time and that they are now going to share their lives as husband and wife from that point forward.
Their wedding day and love story in Jaclyn’s words:
“We met almost five years ago at a bar in New Paltz. We had mutual friends for years before but our paths never crossed while I was in college/teaching abroad and he was stationed in California serving in the Marines. It was truly love at first sight though and ever since that night we never stopped thinking about one another.
The first two years of our relationship were long distance and by the time Paul was able to move back home we realized we were having a baby girl! Our engagement was perfect. It was Christmas Eve, I was nine months pregnant opening my stocking when I found the most incredibly, sparkly surprise inside. It was our very own private moment, but we got to share it with all of our family the very next day!
Our wedding day priorities were to find a place we felt represented who we were as a couple. We loved Lippincott Manor because it was beautiful and classy, but also laid-back and fun. We also wanted to include as many of our loved ones as possible. We definitely were ambitious with a large guest list and 20 member wedding party!
Our wedding day was probably on the hottest day either of us have ever experienced. Despite the heat, everyone at our wedding had a blast dancing the night away. It was truly the most beautiful, heart warming ceremony led by the father of the groom followed by a wild summer party (complete with guests jumping in the near by river to cool off). I love the fact that people are still talking about our wedding. It keeps all the great memories alive.”

"When my husband and I were researching who we wanted to shoot our wedding, we wanted to work with someone who didn’t just shoot posed fake photos on the weekends, but work with someone who was truly passionate about their work. We lucked out and found TWO individuals, Caitlinn and Brian, who are exactly that - the most real and honest people who simply love what they do and it truly shows through their pictures. They capture the most natural of moments, in the most flattering lighting creating magic. Their work is just unbelievable. We LOVED working with them so much and they have captured such a monumental moment in our lives in ways that we couldn’t even imagine. The planning process was so easy - they answered all of our questions in a timely manner, listened to our requests and made the wedding so easy and seamless for us and our family and friends. Everyone in our party can't stop complimenting them :). Stop searching and just book Caitlinn and Brian already! It will be the best decision you make." - Kayla (Married June 1, 2019 at Le Chateau)
REVIEWED BY COUSIN OF THE BRIDE
"The Ramsden’s were the photographers at my cousin’s wedding this past Sunday and I was blown away by their amazing energy and the care they showed for each member of the bridal party. They arrived that morning bounding down the hall, literally radiating excitement and positivity in their body language and cheerful interactions with each of us. They were amazingly patient and encouraging with my daughters, the flower girls, who were being a bit challenging and still managed to capture amazing photos as they darted around. They are committed to capturing GORGEOUS, breathtaking photos but never lose sight of the people they are photographing. Mr. Ramsden was constantly checking in, extending an arm or a hand to climb up and down tricky steps or hills, and making sure the bride was taken care of with water and breaks to rest and take a breath. Mrs. Ramsden has such a clear, energetic way of communicating and made the picture taking process fun, quick, and full of laughter. This couple contributed to making an exciting day stress free and so, so fun!!!" - Ashley (June 30, 2019 - The Garrison)

"The Ramsdens are EVERYTHING you want and more for your wedding. Caitlin and Brian are not just "photographers". They become your friends and by the end of your wedding, family.
My husband and I were married this past Saturday and can not stress enough how easy this beautiful Husband and Wife duo are to work with. If you are looking for FUN, WARM, TALENTED individuals to capture your love, look no further.
My husband and I are having the best time creating our wedding album and are already looking for excused to take photos and hang out with Caitlin and Brian again."

I CANNOT SAY ENOUGH GOOD THINGS ABOUT THE RAMSDENS!
"1. Nicest, most down to earth, warmest couple you will ever meet, literally wish they were my friends
2. INCREDIBLY organized, you will never for a second have a doubt that they are ALL over it
3. THE PHOTOS ARE BREATH TAKING, literally before anyone says anything else about the wedding they say WOW THOSE PHOTOS
4. Made me feel so beautiful and so comfortable, the photos celebrate who we are as a couple but GLAMMIFIED
5. BRIAN LITERALLY KEPT ME FED AND GAVE ME WATER... like ACTUALLY they care SO SO MUCH, not just about the job but about YOU, every time i got overwhelmed for a moment they were there for me, they always had my back
6. DID I MENTION THE PHOTOS? they will get shots you can't even dream of, i post probably 50 a day because WOW
honestly.... not booking the ramsdens will be your only wedding regret, they will be in our lives forever, these are two of the best people i have met, and i am BLOWN away by their work and pure hearts. the best. simply the best."

"If you are looking for genuine and extremely talented photographers look no further. Booking the Ramsdens as our photographers was the best money we spent on our wedding.
I first came across the Ramsdens when my husband and I got engaged and we decided we would be married in the Hudson Valley. I was stunned by their work and knew I wanted them to photograph this new journey for my soon to be husband and I.
From the first interaction over email we knew that not only were the Ramsdens talented, but were also very kind and genuinely interested in our relationship and how they could capture our love. They felt like friends before we had even met them in real life! We took our engagement photos and even though it was a drizzly and cloudy day, somehow they captured the most beautiful photos of us. I have never received so many compliments in my life until I shared these photos with family and friends! They make you feel so comfortable and capture photos of you that you didn't even know were possible. It's unreal.
On our wedding day, they were so easy to work with and made everyone feel so comfortable. They brought ease and calmness to the day and I cannot say enough good things about them. It's now been over 2 weeks since my wedding and we just received the wedding photos....and once again, we are blown away.
Caitlinn & Brian - Thank you for being you! We will continue to be fans and hope one day that we will have the opportunity to work with you both again. Cheers! :)"

"If you've found yourselves on the Ramsden's website or social profiles - look no further!!! Caitlinn and Brian shot our wedding this past May and they were an absolute DREAM to work with. The overall vibe felt as though we were working with a childhood friend who could make you laugh and feel comfortable, but also left you with the reassurance that each moment would be captured beautifully. From the moment they arrived on our wedding day, until the very end - not a detail was missed, and when we go through our photos, I am able to close my eyes and relive that exact memory. The quality of their final results is top notch, I could go on and on… THANK YOU Caitlinn & Brian for making our day a fairytale – we feel so lucky to have found you two!!"

"I don’t even know where to start with how much we love Caitlinn and Brian. I knew right away when they were a fellow international couple, that we would click. And I was right! From the first email, to our fun bbq together, to our wedding day- it was perfection. Prior to meeting, they were always quick with responding to emails and I often chatted with either of them over social media as well which was fun! After meeting in person, we felt even more at ease and knew for sure we made the right decision choosing them. On our wedding day they made us feel so comfortable! On a day that was a bit chaotic (our family and friends really know how to party), they maintained professionalism and made us and our guests their priority. Many of our guests came up to me during the wedding to say how great they were and how they even showed some of our guests the photos they were taking throughout the night. What you see is what you get with them, but even more! They truly are artists and their work is incredible. There is not enough I can say about their work ethic either. They had our sneak peek ready 24 hours after our wedding! I have friends who have been married and did not get their photos back for 6 months, so this was shocking! They aren’t just our photographers, but now our friends :)"
