Crooked Lake House Wedding – Dianna and Keith

I remember when I first met Dianna, at a Panera in Albany. After our meeting she said to me “Crystal, I am really impressed with you. Not just with your work, but with you as a person. I really like you”. She may not remember saying that to me lol, but it stuck in my head. She is one of the nicest people I have ever met, and she ended up booking her wedding with me right then. I am so glad she did!

When it came time for their engagement session, I finally got to meet Keith, and could totally see the connection they had. They totally killed it during their session, which can be seen here. I couldn’t wait for their wedding!

Dianna was a gorgeous bride!  When she walked down the aisle, and Keith had tears in his eyes, I had to fight back tears of my own. What a beautiful ceremony!  (more…)

Saratoga NY Engagement Session – Crystal Turino Photography

I met up with Jessica and Steve at the Saratoga Battlefield on a windy spring evening. Jessica looked stunning in a pale blue dress reminiscent of Cinderella. Her beautiful hair and make up was done by Lipstick N Lashes. Steve was looking dapper in a black suit and blue shirt. Even their dog was dressed for the occasion wearing a little bow tie! We had so much fun during our session, and the lighting from the sunset was just perfect. The love and chemistry between these two was so awesome to photograph, and I swear they are undercover models because I would go to tell them to pose in a certain way, and they would already be doing it before I opened my mouth. A photographer’s dream! I can’t wait to photograph their wedding this fall at the Glen Sanders Mansion! (more…)

Brown’s Brewery Wedding – Leslie and Tom

Leslie and Tom are amazing. Seriously. In the amount of time that I have gotten to know them through our first meeting, our engagement session (check out that session here), and their wedding day, I have witnessed not just their love for one another, but the fact that they are truly great people.

Their friends and family gathered from New Jersey and around Binghamton, NY for their wedding day at Brown’s Brewery in Troy, NY. It was the first weekend in May, but boy was it a hot, sunny day! When I arrived at Leslie’s hotel room, she greeted me with a smile. Her twin sister was there to help her get ready. It wasn’t just Leslie’s wedding day, but it was also their birthday! Tom was getting ready at the same hotel, in a nearby room. (more…)
