Melissa & Jeffery began their 2017 the right way by committing to love and cherish each other for the rest of their days at the gorgeous Hall of Springs in Saratoga last weekend. The Hall of Springs is hands down one of the most beautiful venues that I have ever set foot in, and it created the perfect backdrop for Melissa & Jeffery to celebrate their vows. As soon as the reception started, NY Body & Soul played some killer tunes non-stop for the entire evening. Congratulations to both Melissa, Jeffery & Andrew!

Congratulations to Kimberly & Tyler!!! I closed out my 2016 year of photography with this fantastic New Year's Eve wedding at the White Eagle Conference Center in Hamilton, NY. Kimberly & Tyler said their vows at the White Eagle just before sunset last weekend after spending the morning and early afternoon getting ready with their closest friends. Kenny the Promo Guy spun some awesome tunes from the balcony above for the rest of the evening and kept Kimberly & Tyler's guests rocking the night away! I was very excited at the end of the evening when we noticed that it was snowing outside. I packed up and met Kimberly & Tyler at the covered bridge for some killer late night portraits. All in all, it was a wonderful way to bring in the new year!

Planning to get married later in 2017, Molly & Joe picked Lake Placid to meet up and shoot their engagement photos the week before Christmas. We caught a very nice blanket of fresh snow that made every location that we visited extremely picturesque. We started at High Falls Gorge, near the base of White Face Mountain. The views and scenery in the snow are absolutely stunning! It was so nice to get to know Molly & Joe throughout our afternoon strolling through the gorge. To close our session, we traveled to Moody Tree Farm in Saranac Lake in the evening, where we were set free to move around the farm as we pleased. Fortunately, they had a nice fire going for us at both locations! Special thanks to my wife, Katie, who braved the cold and carried my gear throughout the day!
Congratulations to Molly & Joe, of #themollyandjoeshow!! Can't wait until this October!
Being asked to photograph a wedding for the family member of another photographer is quite the honor. When Dana asked my good friend John (from John Aitken Photography) and myself to photograph Lindsay & Pat's wedding, we were beside ourselves! So much pressure and excitement, and we absolutely had to say yes!
Lindsay and Pat chose the PERFECT location for their wedding - The Radisson Lackawanna Station Hotel in Scranton, PA. From an enormous board room for the girls to get ready in, to the amazing ceremony space in the lobby of the former train station, a fantastic day was set to unfold. As Lindsay walked down the aisle, there wasn't a dry eye around (Including Pat's!). Halfway to her future groom, she stopped for a shot of Pepsi to hydrate for the rest of the trip before she said her vows. Pat finally got to kiss his bride and walk back down the aisle, arm in arm. After cocktail hour in the lobby, the wedding party made their entrance to the ball room to welcome Lindsay escorted by Pat in his super cool LED shoes. All of Mr. & Mrs. Batsford's guests had the time of their lives throughout the rest of the evening, making certain that the new couple had an amazing night!
Lindsay & Patrick's Vendors were:
Hair: Hillary Hartman - Hair by Hillary
Makeup: Liz LePoidevin
Dress: Spybaby Bridal
Bridesmaid's Dresses: David's Bridal
Tuxes: Joseph A. Banks
Cake: Minooka Bakery
Flowers: Fox Hill Farms
Check it out - Holly & Travis are engaged! Typically when it starts raining out, most people decide to postpone their engagement session. Holly & Travis did completely the opposite! We ended up playing in the rain, and I am very pleased with the outcome. I had a great time with these two and am definitely looking forward to their wedding in June of this year.
