The State Room Wedding Photography

Rachael and Zach won the jackpot for best fall foliage this wedding season, which is rare for November. We were able to do all of their photos outside around the picturesque plaza in 60 degree weather. When they were done, we headed to the State Room for these two to get hitched. They had a lovely personalized ceremony that featured readings and vows from “Game of Thrones” and “Parks and Rec”, which shows what great taste they have.

If rain is good luck for a wedding, Ashley and Dan’s marriage will be blessed for years to come. The two did get outside for their first look though, underneath an overhang. From there, we headed back inside to the brewery for some shots. The ballroom was beautifully decorated with fall flowers and decor not to mention an adorable doggy bag table that was literally take home treats and toys for people’s dogs.

We knew when Heather and Eric came to visit us that they were going to have a very fun wedding and it did not disappoint. The ballroom dripped with an Edgar Allen Poe theme as Heather walked down the aisle to “Pure Imagination” from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. After the two were wed, Heather kicked off the party with a change into an amazing red dress. Before dinner the two danced for the first time as husband and wife to Adam Sandler which was followed by two really sweet toasts.

Jimbo's Club Wedding Phtoography

Yesterday we took a scenic drive up to Brant Lake to photograph and celebrate the marriage of Emily and Lenny. We met them both two years ago when they were the maid of honor and best man at her sister’s and his cousin’s wedding. Now that their turn to be married had arrived, they couldn’t have chosen a more perfect location, date, and partner for the occasion. They were wed on the water’s edge with a view of the gold and green speckled mountains and the sound of waves lapping on the shore.

Kathleen and Ian had a gorgeous day for their wedding… we joked that it only took a large order of umbrellas as their insurance policy to scare away the rain in the forecast. We started our day by checking in with the bride and groom, in this case, only a door away, where both sides of the bridal party were in good spirits (and quite punctual!) in their preparations. We headed up the hill to the Capitol Building for the first look.

Linsey and Tom got married on the hottest day so far this year and we are pretty sure the love for them and each other on this day most likely contributed to the warmth. We started our day checking in with them at the Desmond where both were preparing for their big day. We headed over to the Crossings Park for their first look, where once they had their special moment, their dog, Dante was included to have a moment of his own with his parents.

At the church, the two were wed in a beautiful ceremony where the priest reminded everyone that rain is a great symbol of nourishment for life and growth, and therefore is the perfect backdrop for a wedding day.

We really couldn’t ask for a more perfect way to end our wedding season than with Kelly and Alfred’s fairytale and superhero themed wedding. From Kelly’s Cinderella dress and gold shoes, to the groomsmen’s superhero boutonnieres and assuming a super hero landing for photos, to the perfect reading from The Princess Bride followed by the song “So This Is Love” from Cinderella in their ceremony, to pumpkin decoration that were just a wish away from assuming stage coaches, these two had these themes covered.

Kierstin and Tom hit the weather jackpot for an outdoor tent wedding at the Century House in mid-October. The rain tapered off and the sun was doing its first look as the day as these two were doing theirs. We first met the ladies while they were getting dolled up, and by the time she was finished, Kierstin looked like a classic movie star. Over in the groomsmen’s room, the laughs were flowing amid youtube videos as they crammed for their test in how to tie a double Windsor knot in a tie and toasts to share a special beer together.

Danielle and Alan are an amazing couple that truly made their wedding day their own. Dani made the signs, place cards, and other personal touches around the ceremony and reception, even making a swing that hung near the ceremony! Their personalities ran through the ceremony as well, from incorporating Chinese customs, to vows that included lyrics from the Backstreet Boys. The two were wed amid a light but perpetual sprits of rain that I can only assume was luck misting them throughout the day.

Tara and Josh are such a lovely couple, who chose lovely people to be with, at a lovely place, on a lovely September day for their wedding. We started the day by checking in with the ladies. As they got ready, everyone helped out with a safety pin here and a hair touch up there; even the bride was seen steaming and zipping up her ladies’ dresses. It was there that we also met flower girl, Reagan, who let it be know right away that she was in direct running with the bride for most photographs to be taken of her that day.

And then the party started, and there was sure a lot to celebrate! The photo booth was hopping.

After some photos, we then headed over to Jordan’s house where we found her excitement to be quite contagious. From meeting us at the door jumping with a big smile, to the hair and make up person getting a standing ovation from the bridal party, to the whoop of excitement from the back room of the church that echoed throughout the sanctuary, Jordan made it very clear that this was a day of joy.

The Hall was decked with beautiful seasonal decorations and featured a dessert table that was a pyramid loaded with mason jars filled with pie filling goodness (no apple pie though, which we found out from the best man’s speech, is something Aaron has a history with!

Megan + Dan

60 State Street Wedding Photography

Megan and Dan are a beautiful couple that had a beautiful day for a beautiful wedding. We met up with Megan first to find that two of her bridesmaids were sporting cute baby bumps and a third had twin baby girls. The mama and mamas-to-be looked stunning as did Megan. Dan and the groomsmen were getting ready down the hall. After they helped each other through the chaos of tightening ties and folding pocket squares, Dan gave a heartfelt toast to how important their friendship was to him.

90 State Street Wedding Photography

Jackie and Jared are not new to the blog. We first shot their engagement a year ago at Indian Ladder Farms, then they braved the old St John’s church for our first Urban Decay Project shoot. Well the third installment of their photo trilogy is their wedding day… which was perfection. When you have a couple as warm and fun as Jackie and Jared, there is a good chance that their friends and family will exude the same kind of energy, and they certainly did.

River Stone Manor Wedding Photography

Cat and James told us River Stone Manor was beautiful, but when we stepped out of the car and walked back through the well-manicured grounds towards the river, we knew it was going to be a day filled with great shots. Cat finished getting ready there, and had a touching first look with her mother and father before the big reveal to her soon-to-be husband, James. After photos, they headed down towards the river for the ceremony.

Troy Wedding Photography

Alison and Mike had a beautiful, late-summer day for their wedding. I often say that our couples deserve it, which they certainly do, but after learning Alison has waited 11 years to cross this bridge, I was more thrilled than usual for the beautiful forecast. They were married in a church in Latham and then headed over to the Hilton Garden Inn in Troy to enjoy a lovely reception with family and friends.

Kate + Tim

Lake George Wedding Photography

One of the great things about being based out of Albany is that we can one night shoot in the city, and the next night be shooting in the country on a lake. The Adirondacks is one of the most beautiful places we have been and it is right in our backyard. And it doesn’t hurt to head there with a beautiful couple! Kate, Tim, and their whole family and friends were just so warm and welcoming to us that it made it so easy to make some beautiful images with them.

Ela + Mark

The State Room Wedding Photography

Ela and Mark are a fun loving couple who truly deserve each other. They had a sweet first look at the Capitol Building in Albany followed by a photo session that Ela survived. (She confessed that she hates posing for pictures, but she seemed to laugh through most of it.) Their adorable children were quite the opposite though and served an extra serving of ham for the camera. The best part of the photoshoot was retreating to the party bus in between shots.

Nicole + Derek

The Point Wedding Photography

Let’s be honest, we have a pretty sweet job. We get to know some awesome couples, feel like part of their family, and capture one of their happiest days. When Nicole, Derek, and Chloe met us a few months ago, I knew good times were to be had. First, Chloe was on top of ensuring the photobooth was going to be a hit, and Nicole and Derek were so down to earth and fun I just couldn’t wait to capture their day.

Sondra + Bryan

60 State Street Wedding Photography

Some weddings we truly do forget amidst the fun of the day, that this is actually our job. Sondra and Bryan were really that much fun to “work” with. You may remember their engagement last fall. We started by splitting up to capture Sondra and Bryan getting ready, and I must say that the groomsmen truly rivaled any bridesmaids’ instincts and willingness to take photos. We were then off to do a first look at the education building and walked around the Capitol and pedestrian bridge for some great shots.

Jamie + Chris

Backyard Wedding Photography

When pulling up to Jamie’s family home, Jay and I looked at each other and smiled; we knew it was going to be one of those days where it would be easy to take good pictures. Not only was the property breathtaking, but Jamie and Chris had perhaps the most beautiful weather day this whole summer and it was much deserved by such a beautiful couple. Big, billowy white clouds punctuated a rich blue sky, as if Heaven were kissing the wildflower-strewn fields.

Revolution Hall Wedding Photography

Hopefully the luck Danielle and Patrick have had so far is a sign of the luck to come in their future together. First the universe supplied them with quite a bit of luck to begin with when Match.com didn’t have them catching each other’s attention at first, they found themselves with a second opportunity to connect while teaching at the same school and finding each other face to face in the teachers’ lounge.

The Appel Inn Wedding Photography

We love to share how we work with the best couples and we feel so lucky that they find us. Our couples have been: fun, quirky, creative, funny and kind, but after shooting Kerri and Ryan’s wedding day, we are adding the word inspirational to the list. After waking on her wedding day to heart-crushing loss, Kerri and Ryan showed an epic balance of joy and grief as they continued through the day.

Kristen + Ken

Wedding Photography

Kristen and Ken have a unique love story figuratively made in heaven but literally made at Camp Chingachgook… oddly they are not our first couple to find true love there! Their family and friend’s were so much fun to work with that my cheeks hurt from smiling throughout the day. And when you get to know them, it is no surprise that they are surrounded by so much love. Mother Nature sent some love their way as well, as she waited until well into cocktail hour to send down the rain.

Meghan + Connor

Glen Sanders Wedding Photography

It was so nice to see Meghan and Connor again. We had so much fun at their engagement shoot; the shoot where we found out as we were wrapping up that Connor had been getting over pneumonia. The fact he had just smiled through it made us realize we had a couple who had what it took to commit to taking great photos! Their wedding day was just perfect: beautiful dresses, flowers, and suits, attentive bridal party, gorgeous location, blue skies, lovely ceremony, touching toasts and dances, and some hard core dancers who frequented the dance floor… not to mention at the heart of it, a couple perfect for each other.

Ashley + Randy

90 State Street Wedding Photography

When I met Ashley and Randy over a year ago, I had a hunch they would have a fun wedding. First, they were having their ceremony at Oakwood Cemetery in Troy. Having grown up near Troy, I know how cool this chapel is, but had no idea how beautiful it was inside, nor that you could do wedding there. The fun continued when I showed up at their house where the ladies were getting ready to find an arcade game in their living room.
