A great start to the New Year was having the opportunity to photograph the wedding of Annie & Will Macaluso at Franklin Plaza in Troy, NY. It was a “little cold” on this particular wedding day, with temperatures in the single digits! At one point, when we were photographing at Annie’s house in the morning, the temperature gauge read -9 below but this did not stop Annie & Will from enjoying every aspect of their wedding day! Their ceremony and reception was held at the elegant Franklin Plaza Ballroom, which sparkled brightly from the decorations and up-lighting that filled the rooms. The stage was set perfectly for a gorgeous wedding and we were excited to be photographing our first wedding of the New Year!
Annie looked absolutely beautiful when the Imagine! Team showed up to start capturing her day. Makeup by Kyle was just finishing as we arrived and as always they did a fabulous job on everyone. The flower girl was so cute and I could tell it was going to be a challenge not taking a million photos of her! If you’re going to have a winter wedding make sure you have a warm beautiful coat like Annie did, she looked so stunning in it and at one point it was keeping her from turning into a snowman!
This expression on Annie’s face is priceless, so was so excited to be getting married!
We interrupt this moment with a call from Will, could Annie’s smile get any bigger?Gotta love that flower girl!
Deep in thought has Annie gets ready… she must be thinking about the first look!
Annie is so beautiful and I love that sparkle in her eyes! Hang on Will, you knees will buckle for sure when you see her!
Annie looks so warm here in her white coat… it’s a good thing you can’t see all of her goosebumps!
Looking good Will! A couple of adjustments before the first look with Annie.
We were joking about Will beating everyone in chess, so we had him play his alter ego.
The “First Looks” can be very emotional and I really love this image of Annie seeing Will for the first time on their wedding day!
Out to face the weather and capture a few outside images. I think Will should have had a White coat too!
I don’t know what the Ring Bearer and Flower Girl were really doing here but it was priceless!!
Here we are all chill-en in front of Franklin Plaza… literally
I think the Ring Bearer wanted to go back outside!
Annie sneaks Wanda this smile as she prepares to walk down the isle.
Speechless… absolutely speechless!
Annie and her Mom with huge smiles on as they see Will.
As always the room at Franklin Plaza was elegant and the guests were all blown away when they came into the room by its beauty.
Just a little twirl on the dance floor during Annie & Will’s first dance together.
Their family and friends danced the entire night and everyone had a fantastic time together!
I just love that we have the opportunity to capture moments like theses for our couples!
I love the quiet moment that Annie & Will are having in front of the fireplace with the beautiful Christmas Tree glowing in the background.
Will decided to play a little tune on the piano for Annie… it’s like she is falling in love with him all over again!
