Carly and Jacob were SUCH a pleasure to work with! From their engagement session at Bethesda Fountain and Terrace in Central Park to their beautiful, outdoor private estate wedding, it was a joy. Their wedding was a classic mix of prep and elegance. They had originally planned on getting married at a country club in October, but because of COVID decided last minute to move their wedding up a month to September and shift the reception to Carly’s family home in New Jersey.

They brought in a number of tents with gauze and chandeliers to transform her parents backyard, complete with a custom made gingham picture wall (designed and built by one of their guests) and Delft jars to honor their Dutch heritage. Carly & Jacob opted to do a first look at Dey Mansion and brought in a vintage Rolls Royce for their trip to the church for the ceremony. Jacob wore velvet “I Do” shoes, Carly included her grandmother’s pin on her bouquet, and they opted for a key lime pie cutting rather than a wedding cake. They also incorporated their personalized monogram throughout the day – from their wedding invitation suite to the napkins to the custom monogram decal on the dance floor.

But beyond all these details, Carly and Jacob’s day was full of love, joy, and so many emotional moments that I was so grateful to capture! From Jacob’s tears as Carly walked down the aisle to their exuberant moments on the dance floor (and dress change!), this wedding was so inspiring to shoot!

"We could write a whole novel about how much we love Liz."

"Truly unparalleled artistic talent. Liz truly got to understand my husband and I as individuals and as a couple, and she used this knowledge throughout her work to capture beautiful, meaningful moments. We had Liz photograph every part of our wedding process - from the engagement shoot, to the bridal shower, the rehearsal dinner, and finally of course the wedding day. She is kind, enthusiastic, responsive, and an all around fantastic person. We cannot recommend her enough!”

"Working with Liz Andolina was an absolute dream."

Not only is Liz extremely talented, she is kind, encouraging, perceptive, detail-oriented, organized and insightful. Her professionalism was unmatched and the care she put into our day meant so much to us. The photographs that she took, and the moments she captured, show how much of an artist she is, her keen eye and her innate talent. We will cherish these images for years to come. I cannot recommend her enough. We are forever grateful to her.

Liz is an incredibly talented photographer. We loved being around her and felt so at ease.

Liz captures the emotion, details, and special moments in the most talented and beautiful way. She is a fantastic planner, has a creative eye, and gets every single detail.
