Katrina + Neil = Baby! Proctor Park in Utica, New York

I remember Katrina and Neil’s wedding like it was yesterday.  Which reminds me of how time flies and how cool it is to watch people that I’ve witnessed get married continue on their journey to having children.  Katrina and Neil are such an awesome married couple to begin with, kind, intelligent, and down to Earth.  So I can just imagine what awesome parents they are going to make.  These two came from their new home in New Jersey to pay me a visit.  And we decided to do their session right in Proctor Park in Utica, New York.  I’m so happy for their family growing.  Always a great pleasure seeing you, congratulations to you both!!

Sarah & Jonathan are Engaged! Wolffs Biergarten in Albany, New York

I’m definitely looking forward to Sarah and Jonathan’s New Year’s Eve wedding.  These two have been carefully planning away their wedding in an old historical bank in downtown Albany.  And judging by their cuteness overload, I can just tell that the wedding is going to be unique and spectacular!  These two took me on a fun adventure starting at Wolff’s Biergarten in Albany, New York.  Which was a great discovery (thanks, guys!) and I will definitely be grabbing a beer next time I’m there.  It has a unique interior design and amazing atmosphere.  After that, we headed to the New York State Capitol building for some epic architectural shots.  Let’s all agree that it’s very Harry Potter-esque?!  Such a splendid morning with such a lovely couple.  Congratulations to you both!!

Rochelle & Chris are Engaged! – Root Glen in Clinton, New York

Rochelle and Chris were meant to be!  At least everyone else knew it before them!  When I met these two for their engagement session they explained to me how they met through mutual friends and family.  They all insisted that they were perfect for each other and would get married.  They at first thought the idea was silly but after some time it became true!  And now, they’re finally getting hitched.  It was such a joy spending the afternoon with these two and strolling through Root Glen at Hamilton College in Clinton, New York.  Thanks guys for the adventure and again, congratulations to you both!! :)

Kaitlin & Shara – Pat’s Barn in Troy, New York

Kaitlin and Shara are just plain awesome!  Both so kind and intelligent and together such a balanced team.  When I met with them to talk about their wedding photography they were so excited to have a special day with their closest friends and family and most importantly, to be married and begin their life journey together.  And I was just as excited for them as it was clear that they are crazy about each other.  And that kind of love should be celebrated well.

Their wedding day was a perfect harmony of beautiful and fun!  We arrived in the area for their preparation shots and everyone was laughing and in good spirits.  Once Kaitlin and Shara were dressed and ready we headed to Colonie Town Park in Cohoes, New York to take lots of photos.  The fall weather was perfection with golds, yellows, and so much warmth!  Then the fun began at Pat’s Barn in Troy.  They had a fabulous wedding ceremony outdoors on the lawn.  Every guest was greeted with cider and donuts!  After some amazing vows the party started in the barn which was carefully decorated to personalize Shara and Kaitlin’s style.  My team and I had such a great time and could not be any happier for Shara and Kaitlin.  Congratulations to you both!!

Alma & Sean – Valentino’s in New Hartford, New York

I have known Alma and Sean for a awhile now and they are the most positive and down to Earth people you will know. They are the couple that you want to hang out with because they’re fun and have a witty sense of humor. And they’re people you can always call a friend. Sean is the type of person that does big things. So when he told me that he took Alma in a helicopter down the Grand Canyon to propose, I wasn’t surprised at all. And that’s just the way that he loves Alma, big time. So shooting their wedding was an honor and an experience alone to be a part of.

Alma and Sean got married at the The Dorothy Smith Center for Advocacy at RCIL in Utica, New York. Afterwards we headed to the Turquoise Tiger for some fun portraits. Then everyone was stunned by how amazing the reception looked at Valentino’s in New Hartford, NY. It was draped everywhere with strategically placed vibrant lights. It was exactly who they are, laid back and unique. An amazing time was had by all and I am so glad I had the opportunity to document it. Congratulations to Alma and Sean!! You both are amazing!!
