Is it me or does time just seem to just fly by? Especially during the prime wedding season, I always get a kick out of the new bride’s that feel their wedding is so far away and I am always telling them that it will be here before they know it. Last year, 2010 was a prime example, we had our first wedding in April and went straight through to the end of November. We photographed a total of 40 weddings and events in 2010. Below you will find a few of our favorite images that we wanted to share with everyone. We had a lot of great weddings this past year and enjoyed working with so many great clients. Our first wedding for 2011 is this Saturday at the Hall of Springs in Saratoga and anticipate having a great time! So before it gets too late we wanted to share these images and celebrate bringing in the New Year! Enjoy!
One of our first weddings was in April at the beautiful Franklin Plaza where we had the honor of photographing Nicole and Anthony. This image was taken on a side street in Troy and I loved this particular area due to the “Grunge Feel” that it had. Sometimes the best images can be found away from your venue. Always keep an open mind, you never know what your photographers will capture.
I know… we always tell our brides and grooms to relax and be themselves. We don’t want them looking like mannequins or statues… except in the photo below titled “Loft Love.” We were in Saratoga Springs and asked the great staff of the Loft if our bride & groom (Greg & Melissa) could pose in their windows like mannequins and to my surprise they agreed. After a couple of photographs they emerged from the store in front of some onlookers clapping and cheering.
A secret meeting place at Longfellows is where Jennifer& Lenny had their “First Look.” They were a great couple and we had a lot of fun photographing them.
On location at the State capital is always a favorite place but the car and attitude of this bridal party really made the shot! Hayley and Fred were married on May 8th, 2010 and their reception was at the State Room.
This image says it all, I love to see a groom loosen up and have fun with his bride. Jennifer and John were married on May 23, 2010 at Glen Sanders Mansion.
Every year I can always count on great sunset photo’s like this one, I love capturing them! This one was taken at Saratoga National Golf Club. Colleen & Bryan were married on May 29th, 2010.
On May 30th, 2010 Desmond & Crystal were married in a park and we stopped at the State Capital for some fun shots, this is one of my favorites.
School is in! This was a pretty hot day in June but everyone still had a great time. Joe and Amber were married on June 19, 2010 at the Pryne House in Latham.
Michele and Josh were married on June 26, 2010 at a private home in Saratoga Springs and one of the main locations for the photography took place at the Saratoga Race Track. We love the umbrellas and the attitude from the bridal party!
On June 27th, 2010 we were at Saratoga National for a great summer wedding. Christine and Zach had a perfect day and we were happy to share it with them.
Shannon and Eric were married on July 3, 2010 but before heading to the reception at the Desmond we stopped to capture this image in front of their church.
Brittany and Eric were married on July 10, 2010 and were spending a moment alone together. The looks that they shared all day, one could easily see how much in love they are with each other.
Using a little sun filter I captured this image entitled “Star Bright” for Andrea and Jeremiah, they were married on July 17, 2010 at Perthshire.
I love creating romantic photographs of the bride and groom, this one was created at midnight on July 30, 2010 at Glen Sanders Mansion.
The expression captured here of Stephen shows exactly how he feels, as he marries his new wife. Meghan and Stephen were married on August 7, 2010 at the River Stone Manor.
Rachel & Brian were married on August 21, 2010 and we stopped at Union College to photograph the bridal party.
Kelly and William had a little rain for their wedding on August 22, 2010 but that did not stop them from getting some great photos. Here is one of my favorites at Saratoga National on that day.
I love this image of Erin, who is waiting to marry Anthony her fiancee on September 4th, 2010.
Devon and Daniel tied the knot on September 5th, 2010 at the Albany Country Club. Daniel is a character and I think I captured that here.
A stroll in the park on their wedding day. Tom and Jessica were married on September 11th, 2010 and spent a moment alone enjoying each other.
The calm before the storm, one of my favorite places to photograph up in Lake George… The Lake George Club!
I love the challenge of photographing large bridal parties. I am always looking for something different and unique. I always love the look on bridesmaids faces when I ask them to sit on the ground. This photo was worth it!
This bride and groom live in Bermuda, no matter how much we begged they would not take us home with them.
Kate and Jeremy were married on September 25th, 2010 and were very romantic with each other. We could tell from the moment we met them that it was going to be a great wedding day!
The sky opened up and the sun shined bright for Jessica & Joseph who were married on October 1st, 2010.
The love of his life, Kristen had a beautiful dress and Tom nearly fainted when he saw her for the first time.

October is a great time to photograph outside even on a chilly day. Here Lauren and Tyler enjoy a little wedding alone time.
Erin and Jason were married on October 30, 2010 and when they look into each others eyes, it’s as if they have fallen in love all over again.
Here is something different from Alissa and Sean’s wedding this past November. A little attitude and a great look can tell a great story!
