I often get asked if I shoot more than just weddings. The answer is a big yes! I love it when my couples call me for newborn and family sessions. It is cool to see the evolution from newly engaged, to engagement pictures, then on to wedding photos. Sometimes maternity sessions, almost always newborn sessions (which I love) to little ones growing up! I have some families that I have photographed for over ten years! It is pretty awesome to be such a big part of a family’s lives. I will start with little Noah today. He is just three days old! I photographed Mark and Meghan’s engagement photos and wedding at The State Room in Albany, NY. We then did a maternity session and now BABY! He was such a good little guy, hardly any crying, lots of different positions and he was pretty agreeable. Congratulations to Meghan and Mark, you guys are going to be awesome parents!
The second little newborn I want to show you is Olivia! She is one week old and has so much hair! I also photographed Rob and Jess’ wedding and engagement photos. They were married at The Crooked Lake House last year and the engagement session was in downtown Albany! I loved watching the two of them with Olivia- also a lucky little lady to have Rob and Jess as parents!
Now we move on to the little grown up – 6 months old!*joking
Little Keian! Kat and Ant are two friends of mine and I also photographed their wedding, it was at Saratoga Polo club. With Keian we did newborn, 3 month old and 6 month old photos for Kat and Ant! They grow up so fast it is good to do 3, 6, 9 , and 12 month old photos! Dino Petrocelli was nice enough to let us use his studio and we had a blast! Thank you guys!
Moving onto something different I want to introduce you to my friend and client Samantha Williams! I know Sam from 6 years of playing roller derby with her. She is a CPA and also currently pursuing a career in real estate! She will be working for Prudential and I know she will be awesome. If you are looking for an agent keep her in mind! You can email her at Samantha.k.Williams@gmail.com If you are looking for head shots keep me in mind @ email@example.com
Marika and Tom were married at The State Room, downtown Albany- November 22. Two of the sweetest people and such a fun romantic day. The two of them could be models! I loved Marika and Tom’s laid back personality and easy going nature and wow Marika is beautiful! The State Room was awesome as always, Mike Girassi from Piano Man entertainment kept the party going, Flowers are from Ambiance, and Dave Bigler was on video. Thank you for choosing me guys!
Ali and Brent were married November 1st, at Belhurst Castle, Geneva NY. This was my first time to Belhurst Castle and it is so cool, thank you Ali and Brent for choosing me! I arrived in Ali’s suite for some preparation photos and was stunned, it was the grand sweet and was beautiful and unique. The view of Seneca Lake from the balcony is impressive! The ceremony and reception were all at the castle which helped create a low stress and fun environment. Hope you guys love everything and enjoy!
Meghan and Chris were married on October 19th at Saratoga National in Saratoga Springs. True Grace did the make-up, flowers are from Anthology, Music Mike Mike Girassi was the DJ, Giovanni from Video Craft with video, Meghan’s (beautiful) dress is from Angela’s, and Mazzone’s was the caterer. This was an all-star day and Meghan and Chris were the headliners! The two of them are so sweet and so in love, that it was an honor to share their day with them. I first met Meghan and Chris at The Crooked Lake house when I photographed their friends Jess and Ryan’s wedding. Meghan was in the bridal party and I could not have been more excited when she contacted me to photograph her wedding. We did a winter engagement session at Washington Park in Albany and even went on the frozen pond! The shoot was great, and when you have such a fun couple, it really shows in the photos! But back to the wedding day… it was a little chilly but the two of them kept it so fun, that we didn’t even notice! I think the first look says it all, just look at Chris’ face. We did it behind the patio where the light was a golden yellow and I was hoping the wind was blocked! Hope you enjoy the photos!
My assistant Jean Henderson was helping to second shoot as well, so that we could both get the good angles. If this indicates to you how in the moment the two of them were you know the day was amazing. Couples like Meghan and Chris are why I love weddings! Enjoy the little sneak peak and I look forward to hearing from you!
Katie and Adam are two of the nicest, sweetest people you could ever meet and Brodie the pup is just as charming! I diverge though, back to the basics, Katie and Adam were married at The Gideon Putnam, in Saratoga Springs, NY. Make-up was down by Sweet kisses the band was the very gracious and awesome High Definition and the flowers are from Dean’s flowers. The day started cloudy but as soon as Katie came out for the first look the sun came with her. It helped that they included Brodie the golden retriever into the ceremony and the pictures he added an additional fun element. He did distract me with his cuteness. I love when my couples are all about each other and friends and family- the people (and animals) they love. That is what makes the best wedding, this for me is just that. I hope you love the sample pictures!
