Greg & Michelle: In-home Session

Greg and Michelle are an awesome couple, and getting to shoot their engagement photos where they live is always so fun. It’s chill and the best place to take engagement photos because it’s where they do their every day life. We hung out, chatted about their wedding, and enjoyed their home. It was a perfect fall day, which made for some awesome photos. And who doesn’t love it when their dog joins in too?

We took engagement photos at their home, then headed to Downtown Schenectady, where we walked Jay Street. Like I said, it really was a perfect fall day for their photos.

Below are some highlights of the shoot!

Nate & Susan

Nate and Susan celebrated their wedding at Thatcher Park on a beautiful end of summer day. They were surrounded by everyone they love, including their very adorable little daughter, Flynn.

The day was filled with fun, especially surrounding the photo booth (with flowers by my talented wife, Olive & June Floral Co.) and fire pit. Orapellos Wood Fired Pizza and live music completed the day.

It was such a joy being able to photograph this celebration, as me as my wife became good friends with Nate and Susan through the wedding planning process.

Cheers to the lovebirds!

Mike & Kat

I shot Mike & Kate at Thatcher Park for their engagement photos and oh my gosh- it was awesome. The park provided the perfect backdrop for an adventurous shoot in the woods- it’s always the best when your couples are down to climb trails too!

Thanks again to Mike & Kat for letting my capture your engagement- you guys are so cool.

Ryan & Jackie

Ryan & Jackie wed at The Inn at Erlowest in Lake George. It was a beautiful, romantic day, at a seriously beautiful venue. The view at this place is to die for.

Every little detail of Ryan & Jackie’s wedding was so personal, and their wedding parties were so much fun. We headed to the lake for some bridal portraits, and also in the trees. it was the perfect, Adirondack mountain filled day. So happy for these guys!!

Cheers again to you both, Ryan & Jackie!

Aaron & Sabrina

Aaron and Sabrina wed in Oregon, at the most beautiful church. Everything about this wedding was unique and different and that’s why every minute of it was perfect! The basement’s abandoned pool also made for very rad portraits. And of course, the party to end the night was filled with fun and loved ones.

It was such a pleasure to photograph their big day! Cheers to you, Aaron and Sabrina!

Ben & Jackie

Ben and Jackie. Man, this wedding was amazing. 

These two love birds tied the knot at an Airbnb, with their closest friends and family. Every detail was so special and personal, and made for their fun, relaxed wedding to be SO fun and enjoyable.

I snuck them away around sunset, and we shot some epic photos by the lake. Talk about portraits! 

Cheers to the newlyweds! 

 

Matty & Jess: An In-Home Session

Shooting some of your very best friends in their own home is awesome.

Its real, authentic, and comfortable, which makes it easy to capture their true selves. 

I shot Matty and Jess's wedding a few years back, so to be able to capture them now, a few years into their marriage, was such a pleasure! We laughed and had fun, and the results are as sweet as ever. 

The Jones Family

A trip to Portland always has to include a photoshoot with my good friends, the Jones family. Their kids are the cutest, and they are serious babes themselves. 

 A rooftop downtown was the perfect backdrop for these family portraits. 

It's always a pleasure and joy to capture this family! 

Rachel & Mike

Rachel and Mike married in the historic Carey Institute for Global Good . This wedding is when I fell in love with Jewish weddings- there is nothing like the tradition, thoughtful moments, and the true celebration from the family. The Carey Institute was the perfect backdrop to this meaningful ceremony, with the chuppah made by the groom himself! The bride wore an Anais Anette dress from Schone Bride, and the groom was in J Crew. The reception was filled with beautiful flowers from Olive and June Floral Co., calligraphy by Holly Winnie,  cake from The Perfect Blend Bakery, and so many other beautiful details (including the Emack & Bolio's ice cream truck!).

Cheers to the newlyweds!  

I also wanted to give a big shout out to Lily at Gardenhouse Films. The work she put out for this wedding is absolutely stunning. Check it out.

Sara & Patrick

Sara and Patrick made our night of walking around downtown Troy, taking engagement photos so fun! We started in the garden at Little Pecks, and then made our way through the streets, and onto a rooftop (aka the top of a parking garage). Golden hour was perfect, and Sara and Patrick exuded real, authentic love, which was so easy to capture! 

Cheers to this awesome couple!
