Whenever the bridal party is willing, I will try and get them to do some wonderful group photos in a unique location, even the Lyman Estate. The outdoor bridal portraits are great, and we have all seen them standing in a line, but I want to give the client something a little different. This group was totally up for something unique so we went into the library of the Lyman for their group photo. The lighting was coming in from two sides of the room, so it have the perfect illusion of a studio softbox. The feel of the room was antique and stoic, so we went with a more serious expression on everyone. They pulled it off brilliantly!
The estate was built in the late 1700s and was home to a man who did merchantile and shipping. His name was Theodore Lyman. The home was redesigned and exapanded over the years and just recently had an update and renovation done in 2017-18
The estate houses grounds for outdoor ceremonies and small intimate indoor cocktail receptions.
