Saratoga Snowy Engagement Shoot

We had a magical and romantic snowy engagement session with Lynn + Bill and I can not get enough of these images. It was cold but so worth it! They even brought their fur baby Brady to the shoot and we couldn’t be any more in love with this sweet pup! One thing that they really wanted for their shoot was snow. All day I was stocking the weather saying – please snow, please snow and just as we got out of the car to start our shoot we got a flood of flurries and it was perfection. I can not wait for Lynn + Bill’s wedding next summer!













How awesome is Lynn’s Skirt?

































At the end of our shoot we did a little champagne toast!
























New Years Eve Wedding at The Otesaga

This was one celebration filled with so much laughter, so many tears and tons of confetti. I was so excited to hear all about this epic New Years Eve Wedding and knew it was going to be amazing because the Otesaga is simply stunning. Add in that lake with a bit of snow and you have a winter wedding of your dreams – not to mention the perfect couple. When Sarah came in to meet we sat down and started to chat a bit about her relationship with Mike and their ideal wedding day. She described him as wonderful, tender, dedicated and just so loving. I could feel her connection with him through her words. For their wedding they wanted something Romantic, Intimate and a BIG PARTY. So they picked the perfect place at the Otesaga which is so luxurious and intimate. Right before Sarah met Mike she had gone through some really difficult times but she pushed through with the love for her young son and the support of her amazing family. She was focused on being the best mother and wasn’t even looking for a relationship when she and Mike met. They had known each other from high school but hadn’t kept in touch after. As fate would have it they met up for a drink. On their first date they both walked way with this feeling that they couldn’t explain. They both had such affection and admiration for the other and they never though in a million years that their someone was someone they had already kinda known. As their blossomed so did that feeling and they quickly grew into more than a couple, they are a family. They have a relationship of respect, excitement, and pure happiness – they deserve every ounce of it. We are beyond excited to share in the celebration of their marriage.









Loving Sarah’s Kate Spade Sparkle Heels!









 





















How amazing is that smile? – Mike said the same thing during his vows and we just loved every second of it!





Mom got a little teary and we just love those moments!  









Stunning Bride





Love this shot of Sarah getting her veil on before the first look!





Take a breath right before she gets to see him.





















Mike loved the dress (and so do we!)





Fantastic looking bridal party!





The guys looked so slick in their tuxes





And the ladies were stunning in their red dresses!





We just love shooting at the Otesaga 













That bride…. 

































Lucas hugged his Mom all the way down the aisle!





This Wedding Ceremony was so intimate and unique. First, Mike’s twin brother Jamie officiated the ceremony. His words were amazing.









As family is so important to both Sarah and Mike, he decided that his words were not the only ones that should be heard that day and had coordinated with family members to tell their own success stories about their marriages. It was so exciting and moving. 





We all were tearing up…













Even little Lucas joined in the Ceremony.





TIME TO CELEBRATE!





















































The toasts were just as thoughtful as the Ceremony, filled with so many great stories.









Yes, Sarah – it was a bug! :::::wink::::









The entire day we were hoping for some snow and just after dinner we got our flurries! 

















Our couple spent some good time on the dance floor













And everyone had a Blast at the YTK Photobooth 









The Count Down Starts….









HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!








Thank you Sarah + Mike for having us celebrate with you on this amazing day! We wish you a Happy New Year and a life of amazing moments!

Katie + Joe’s Cooperstown Engagement

I got an email from Katie inquiring about wedding photography for her Ommegang Brewery Wedding and I was instantly excited. First, I just LOVE brewery weddings because they are unique and generally mean that the couple is into good brew. I emailed her back asking why they had picked that venue (as they are from Boston). She told me that she and Joe are BIG true blue beer fans and Ommegang is where he popped the question! I just love that on all facts and then we went on to compare our favorite breweries and that was that! For their engagement session they wanted to do something classy with that New England feel so we went to the Fenimore Art Museum and shot all around the property, which was just perfect. Down by the water, it was windy and really chilly but these two are troupers! They were such a blast to photograph and I can not wait til their brewery wedding next year!

Melissa + Joe’s Vintage Flair Wedding

We just loved capturing Melissa + Joe’s awesome Birch Hill Wedding this winter. Not only are they an awesome couple, they have amazing style and we just LOVED all the Art Deco details that Melissa pulled through to create this classy and vintage styled wedding! Although it was a little chilly, we pulled though (also with the help of Joe + Melissa’s great coats) and got some amazing portraits in downtown Albany! It was the perfect backdrop to hold that high end feel and we just loved exploring around the capital with this crew! Later we headed over to Birch Hill for a cozy and romantic reception filled with happy tears, laughter and lots of dancing!

Rev Hall Romance with Alex + Heather

Alex + Heather celebrated their love at the Troy’s Rev Hall which is one of our favorite places to shoot! We love the rustic, industrial interior and warm atmosphere they they provide. Heather’s dress was perfect for this crisp fall day and we just loved the details and long sleeves. Alex + Heather’s love blossomed over time. They first started out as close friends and over time their relationship grew into the one that they cherish today. Their ceremony and reception was filled with friends and family and we just loved the laid-back and close feel of their day. There was also a ton of intimate connection as Alex’s brother preformed the ceremony and had everyone falling apart with laughter. It was one of the best ceremonies that we have been to and we loved being able to share this day with such a great couple!

The Long Awaited Day – Haley + Colin’s Love Story Continues…

For those of you who follow our love stories you will remember these adorable faces… For those of you who are new, let me introduce Haley + Colin and a love story that you will never forget. This wedding has been long awaited, through laughter, and tears, with fear, hope and dreams. Originally this happy day was scheduled to be a destination wedding in 2017. All the wedding plans were connecting perfectly until they learned of an unimaginable obstacle. Colin’s father was diagnosed with a very aggressive and late stage cancer. This was a shock to everyone as he was so healthy and active. This type of cancer is not operable and there is no official treatment. So with so much unknown, Haley and Colin decided to move up the wedding to 2016 and have it local. They were working out all of the plans until Chris’ health started rapidly declining and he was unexpectedly hospitalized.
I will never forget the day that Haley called me on a Wednesday afternoon- I had no idea that Chris had been gotten worse and was hospitalized! Haley said “the big party doesn’t matter – We want our parents to be at our wedding and so we are getting married on Friday – can you be there?” You don’t ever say no to something like this – even though I was hopping on a flight to San Fran only hours after – I wasn’t going to miss this for them. I captured their wedding right in the Hospital Chapel. If you haven’t check out those images, please do here: Haley + Colin’s Chapel Wedding
It was one of the best and hardest days of my life. I was so humbled to be able to take those photographs – memories where people know how important the images are as they have perspective of their time together. The tone of that day was bitter sweet. A true celebration of life and how fragile it is. It was an amazing moment to stop, to see, to appreciate, be grateful and have hope. I think that it was everyone’s ability to do exactly this that has brought them were they are today. And I can not tell you how elated I am to say – they got to celebrate ALL TOGETHER. Out of a miracle, Chris’ health started to improve with some help of a new treatment and he was with the entire family to celebrate.Now, weddings are not just a celebration – they are the joining of two hearts and the merging of two families. No one should ever have to go through what this family is experiencing. But you have to stop and see the absolute beauty here. To see the how much love they have for each other– to see how grateful they all are for every moment together. It reminds us that marriage is not just about the dress or the flowers, it’s not about the amazing venue. It is about becoming family and being there for each other for better or worse. And for this love story, it happens to end with and they all lived Happily Ever After.

NY Surprise Engagement with Amanda + Alyssa

Alyssa + Amanda met in 2007 during a recruiting trip at Siena College where they both attended school. Their relationship blossomed over the next few years and in 2010 they became a couple. When Alyssa wrote to me about her plans for the surprise engagement I was beyond ecstatic. Here was the plan (a) they were getting ready to celebrate their 6th year together and she wanted to surprise Amanda by proposing to her at the Siena Softball field – the exact place that brought them together and a place that they frequent on their anniversary. Since it was tradition, Alyssa was going to bring Amanda back to Albany to celebrate their 6th year anniversary! She was going to walk her down to the softball filed so they could pitch together. Amanda has always wanted the proposal to be significant so, on the softball Alyssa was going to write “is this significant enough?” that way when Amanda caught it – she would be confused – then Alyssa would walk over and get down on one knee…..
Inset Plan B
The weather of their anniversary and surprise engagement was scheduled to be rainy (and it certainly was). I talked with Alyssa the day before and told her rain or shine we are a go to capture this amazing moment. Because of the rain we knew that it would be suspicious for Alyssa to ask Amanda to pitch, so instead we just planned on her popping the question right on the pitchers mound. I can not begin to tell you how emotional and exciting this moment was. My stomach was in knots and I had to keep breathing to keep from sobbing! Amanda’s face says it all – she was beyond excited and surprised…..

BUT THEN THE BIGGEST AND MOST SURPRISING THING OF ALL TIME HAPPENED….

Amanda looked at Alyssa and said “I’ve been waiting for you to ask me.” and now I have a question for you… SHE PULLED OUT A RING BOX. We all absolutely lost it. No one had any idea that this surprise engagement was going to have another SURPRISE Engagement! Amanda had been carrying Alyssa’s ring around since June so that when Alyssa asked she could return the question! Later we learned that this bit of Kismet is not odd for this couple – they are always on the exact same page (even with out knowing!) For example – They both brought champagne to celebrate (glasses and all) and secretly stashed it in the car so the other wouldn’t know! They even bought the exact same brand. Amanda said to us later that the softball field is the exact place that she always wanted to have the proposal. It was beyond perfect and we could not be any more excited to share in this amazing moment with these incredible women!
