Jeff & Caralyn

There is something about a rustic wedding that really makes me wish I were at one every weekend. Rustic weddings are filled with textures, natural patterns and other characteristic details like wooden antique wagons, tractors, tall grass, and long dirt roads.

This was a true DIY wedding. The bride and groom spent months cleaning up this old barn that is not typically a wedding venue and is used to store a friend’s antiques and tractors.

When I first went to see this property in early April, the land and barn clearly had some potential and this couple seriously had a vision and worked hard to turn it into the most perfect place for this special day.

So, maybe the lights went out a few times because the circuit panel wasn’t design to handle dozens of lights along with a top notch DJ, but it didn’t stop this couple and their guests from celebrating. Seriously though…not a person was standing still at this wedding from the moment the music got turned up.

They also had a VW bug as a wedding cake. How cool is that?

Many thanks to everyone that made this day so successful and I want to give a very special thanks to an incredible wedding planner, Wendy Lawrence with Fine Affairs. She’s a joy to work with and very accommodating and creative!

Thank you Jeff & Caralyn for having me and I can’t wait to share more photos with you!

Noleen & Mike – 5.16.2016

Congrats Noleen & Mike on your recent engagement!

Talk about being organized, Noleen & Mike have the bulk of their checklist completed with still more than a year remaining until their wedding date.

I had the honor of meeting Noleen & Mike at an open house at Burlap & Beam which is where they will be hosting their wedding. I am very honored that I was selected as their wedding day photographer and that I got the green light from Noleen’s dad who has worked as a wedding videographer for over 20 years.

I’m looking forward to the big day on May 16th, 2016!

Engagement Photos take in The Village of Lake George, NY

Jillian & Greg – 9.6.2014

This was truly and amazing wedding! I’ve had the pleasure of working with Jillian at several weddings because she’s a wedding coordinator for Katie O’ Weddings and Events. The planning of the day could not have been any more perfect. The wedding preparation began at Ann’s Washington Inn in Saratoga Springs and we then went over to the Saratoga Springs Race Track for the first look and wedding party photos. Getting approval to go into the race track after season close is a lot of work but well worth it. I would recommend planning this well ahead of time and if you need help coordinating this just let me know. After the first look we moved over to Fasig Tipton which is one of the most amazing wedding venues in all of Saratoga. So much amazing character and simply a beautiful venue.

Congrats Jillian & Greg!

Alison & Jonathan – 5.18.2013

What a way to kick off the start of this year with Alison & Jonathan’s BIG (200+ guests) wedding! These two elementary school sweethearts who met at the early age of 10 are truly a perfect match. Alison’s first memory of Jonathan was when they were partners in a Portuguese march and she was trying to impress him with her favorite green overalls (which I imagine looked like these). Well the Portuguese march turned into an amazing Portuguese wedding filled with wonderful memories and lots of dancing (unbelievably crazy fast dancing thanks to DJ Brad Bezzati). Alison traded her green overalls in for a beautiful wedding dress from Pronuptia Bridal in Worcester, MA. The flowers were prepared by A Belvidere Florist. Bridesmaids dresses compliments of Bride n Belle.

There was so much joy on this wedding day and I had an amazing time at your wedding Alison & Jonathan. Thanks again!

Quote worth mentioning!

“You were absolutely amazing. We loved how you caught all the right moments and made it such a fun experience for us. All the way from the engagement pictures to the wedding. I loved that you got down and dirty at the engagement shoot to get the right shot and we also enjoyed the off-roading in the golf carts at the wedding haha…. You made the picture taking part fun and it didn’t feel like something we had to do.”

For now here’s a few of my favorites!
