I met Jillian and Joe at a Panera Bread last winter. Besides being a seriously good looking couple, they were super nice, and their love for one another was evident. I knew we were going to work together amazingly!
We met up at Yaddo Gardens in Saratoga Springs, NY on a warm summer evening. Jillian showed up looking fantastic (love her dress!), and Joe showed up ready to make Jillian happy and take some beautiful photos together 🙂
These two made my job pretty darn easy…. I can’t wait to photograph their wedding next May at 90 State Events!
Nikki was a bridesmaid in a wedding I photographed last fall for a wonderful couple. When she contacted me to do an engagement session for her and Trevor at Southern Vermont College in Bennington, Vermont, I was thrilled. I had never been to the college, so when I arrived to find a beautiful castle-like building with a gorgeous mountainous view, I could hardly contain my excitement. It didn’t even bother me when they told me the place was haunted. Kind of makes it even more awesome. Just look at this place!
When I first met up with Dianna at Panera Bread in Albany, I just loved her energy. I don’t think she stopped smiling the entire time we chatted about her wedding day. Even though I hadn’t met him yet, it was clear that she was certainly head over heels for Keith. As we were wrapping up our meeting, Dianna let me know that not only was she very impressed with my work, but she was also impressed with me…kinda the best compliment you can give a photographer during a wedding consultation. I knew the two of us were going to get along fantastically!
We met up on a warm evening in June at the Saratoga Battlefield in Saratoga Springs, NY. The wind was a bit pesky, but we just worked with it; making sure Dianna’s hair was facing the right direction, and out of Keith’s eyes. I swear these two were like professional models in disguise or something, because they were amazing to photograph. As soon as I posed them, they would just fall into a natural laugh, or look at each other in the cutest way. Seriously adorable!
I actually met Ken back in elementary school. I remember he was in my 4th grade class with Mrs. Reardon. We shared the same friends, and hung out as kids, but I hadn’t seen him in years. When his fiance Meagan contacted me to enter an engagement session contest I was having, I was so happy to see how things had turned out for him. It is evident that they are both head over heels for each other. When they asked me to be their wedding photographer, I was stoked.
We met up at the Saratoga Battlefield for their engagement session. The weather had been iffy, and we already had to reschedule once, so we were pleasantly surprised when we were blessed with a beautiful day. We had such a great time; laughing the whole time. It was easy for me to capture the love between them along with genuine emotions from both of them. The sun set was gorgeous that day, and we were blessed with amazing light. We had such an amazing session, and I can not wait to photograph their big day!
As 2013 comes to an end, I still can’t believe all of the amazing things that happened, the incredible people I had the honor of working with, and the touching moments I had the privilege of capturing. I have been there as so many of you marry your best friends, I have planned out exciting gender reveal sessions, I have photographed newborn babies and children to help their parents capture a moment in time that passes all too quickly, I have captured families in all of their silliness and beauty…..I still can’t believe that I get to do what I love!

I met up with Jenn and Bill at Thacher Park near Albany, NY this fall. The leaves were at their peek, and bright in color. We wandered around the beautiful park (thacher park is beyond gorgeous!), getting some great shots along the way. It was a chilly day, and the two of them kept warm with their flannel blanket.

This beautiful couple contacted me last year to photograph their wedding this July. I knew after meeting with them that we would work very well together. That was confirmed for me when we met up to do their engagement session. We headed over to the beautiful Thacher Park. It was a warm summer evening, and the sun was getting ready to set. We started out in an open field, and then headed down the Indian Ladder Trail to get some awesome shots under the waterfall. These two did an awesome job, and were so photogenic! The love between the two of them was so easy photograph. (more…)
I got to meet up with this great couple in downtown Albany NY for a fun engagement session last weekend. I love downtown Albany and all of the beautiful architecture, so I was thrilled when they asked to use this as their location. It had been rainy for days, and we weren’t sure if the weather was going to hold out for our session. It ended up being a bit overcast, but there wasn’t a single raindrop! In fact, the clouds made for very interesting shots of the sky. (more…)
