Amanda & Eric - Dinosaur Bar-B-Que Wedding - Syracuse, NY

It may have been one of the hottest days on record in Syracuse, but you wouldn’t know it when looking at Amanda and Eric and on their wedding day! They started the day out with a sweet first look and some family portraits. Then a quick walk across the street, and we arrived at the ceremony site, Upper Onondaga Park. Underneath the willows (and in the shade) Amanda and Eric said their vows while surrounded by their family and friends. We snuck in a few portraits at the park and then everyone headed over to Dinosaur Bar-B-Que to eat finger licking food and dance the night away. It was a perfect summer wedding and I’m so grateful Amanda and Eric chose me to document it for them. Enjoy the photos :).

Filitsa & Niko - Marriott Syracuse Downtown Wedding - Syracuse, NY

The last time I saw Niko and Filitsa we had just had a giant snowstorm and temperatures were well below freezing. Fast forward to their wedding day just a week and a half ago and we were met with one of the hottest days on record! Despite the crazy heat, these two remained cool and calm amidst the wedding day frenzy and I had so much fun spending the day with them. It was a perfect wedding to kick off my 2018 season with. Two amazing people were surrounded by so much love from their family and friends and I am so happy I was there to capture it all. After a beautiful mass at St. Sophia’s Greek Orthodox Church led by Niko’s father, the newlyweds headed over to the Grand Ballroom at the Marriott Syracuse Downtown to dance the night away. And I mean these guys could really really dance!! Enjoy the photos below :)


The day started at the Marriott Syracuse Downtown, where the girls were pampered in the bridal rotunda and the guys hung out watching the soccer match.

We headed over to Franklin square for a touching first look and some bridal party photos. Then we hopped into the Limo bus and made our way over to St. Sophia's Greek Orthodox Church for the wedding ceremony.
