Outdoor Weddings

Unforgettable Celebrations in Storybook Settings

Mallory Samson '77 is a gifted, versatile photographer with a growing reputation in a genre where clients expect something more than perfection: wedding photography. The Spring 2001 Bulletin profiled Samson and reproduced photos from her first book, Real Weddings (1999). This winter, Chronicle Books releases Outdoor Weddings: Unforgettable Celebrations in Storybook Settings. In a few words and many remarkable pictures, the book invites us to fifteen real-life weddings in visually stunning locales, from Georgia O'Keefe's Ghost Ranch to a piazza high above the bay of Naples. It's a wonderful book to browse through even if you're not planning your own wedding. If you are, it will set you dreaming.
