Grounds For Sculpture Wedding Photographs

Grounds for Sculpture is an incredibly unique venue for weddings. There are over 270 sculptures from such well known artists as Clement Meadmore, Anthony Caro, Beverly Pepper, Kiki Smith, George Segal and may other renowned sculptors. The grounds are described by their website as a place where art and nature are always at play. For me, as a photographer, it’s a place where wedding photographers can play as well. There are a slew of compositional scenarios flowing over the vast grounds with amazing light that strikes the grounds in all different directions. Weddings at Grounds for Sculpture have an incredibly romantic feel to them, and Rats restaurant, the reception venue, is well known for their excellent cuisine. This image was taken during the portrait session of our bride and groom before the wedding ceremony at the Grounds for Sculpture, and we used this spectacular row of trees to create a sensational compositional element for this bridal portrait. It’s one of my very favorite wedding venues in New Jersey, and i love when I have the opportunity to shoot there. The lens compression with my AF-S Nikkor 70-200 F2.8 VRIIG lens added to the impact of the photograph. Rat’s Restaurant, and Starr Events provide exceptional service for the wedding reception at Grounds for Sculpture. .Shortly after we shot this image, we walked around and explored the grounds for more beautiful images. The ceremony was held at the Amphitheater at Grounds for Sculpture.
