Alison & Dan - An Emerson Park Pavilion Wedding - Auburn, NY

Allison & Dan | Emerson Park Pavilion | Auburn, NY

What can I say about Alison and Dan’s wedding day? Well, a lot! It started with a beautiful June day, complete with blue skies and warm sunshine. Alison spent the morning surrounded by her girlfriends, sisters, and family members. Gifts were exchanged, champagne was toasted, laughs were certainly had by all.

After Alison hopped into her GORGEOUS Hayley Paige gown, I headed over the Emerson Park Pavilion, where Dan was milling about with his groomsmen. This goofy crew of guys let me drag them around for a brief photo shoot before the ceremony started.

It was a beautiful and touching ceremony, made even more special by the fact that Alison’s dad was the officiant. After vows were sealed with an I Do and a kiss it was time to get the party started.

We had some time for some stuffing golden hour photos while the guests danced away inside. After strolling around the park, Alison and Dan joined their guests and partied out on the dance floor.

It was such a wonderful day and as always I am so so honored that they chose me to be the one to capture these moments. Enjoy :).

Getting the Most Out of Your Getting Ready Photos

One of the classic times for photographs at any wedding is the morning as the bride and groom are getting ready. This is a special time of the day, one filled with excitement, anticipation, and even a little nervousness. The getting ready period marks the transition from the world of the everyday to the sacred space of the wedding ceremony. Whether you're donning a bridal gown, a tux, or something less traditional, by the end of the getting ready period the atmosphere is charged with a special feeling of romance and love. Of course, it can also be a time for getting silly, goofing around, or maybe having a mimosa! Couples are increasingly interested in documenting the preparatory process, and there are a few guidelines you can follow to get the most out of your photos.

The photographer does not need to be present for the entirety of your preparations. You will probably have several factors you'll be considering as to how to best utilize your photographer's time and talents, and that may mean having them present for only part of the getting ready process. You might even want to get ready a little bit before the actual getting ready photos, if you know what I mean. Not too many couples start their pictures from the very moment they've woken up, bedhead and all!

It's possible that you'll have some downtime during the process as you move from steps like hair and makeup to putting the dress itself on. Schedule sensibly so that you can get the kinds of photos you want. Don't plan to have your hair and makeup done last in your bridal party, but rather somewhere in the middle. That way you can get dressed and avoid a rush to be finished, allowing you and the photographer to capture all the moments you want.

Gather the items you might want detail shots of together ahead of time in an area where they won't be disturbed. You might not believe how chaotic a dressing room before a wedding can become until you're in your very own. Staging some of the objects ahead of time will save you stress and anxiety, and eliminate the danger that anything will be left out or forgotten.

Think about anything you might want detail shots of later, whether that's a dress or tuxedo, shoes, jewelry, cufflinks, or anything else. This is the best time in the whole day to take those shots, and you won't have to worry about remembering them after the euphoria of the ceremony. Don't forget a copy of your invitation suite!



Keep the prep space tidy! Easier said than done in what are sometimes small and crowded spaces, but keeping water bottles, sneakers, and laundry out of the way will also keep them out of the photographs. Keep the area clean as you go by keeping all personal items in one spot.

If you can control where in the room you get your hair and makeup done, I would recommend in front of a window. If you are facing the window you will have pleasant, natural light falling on you. That makes for beautiful images and can balance starker light sources in the room (usually from fluorescent bulbs).

MOST IMPORTANTLY, relax! You want to be yourself in these pictures, so enjoy the morning, the company of your family and friends, and don't sweat the small stuff.

You probably haven't hired too many photographers in your life, so you might not know exactly what to ask me or others you're considering. If I could ask a wedding photographer ONE question, here's what it would be:  Can I see a gallery of a complete wedding?

By the time you're interviewing your potential photographers, you've already looked through their website and public galleries. You'll have a good sense of their style and fit for the day you're planning. But what you won't have seen is their full range across a single wedding.

A wedding is a complicated, day-long event. Your photographer needs to be able to move between a wide variety of lighting situations, work comfortably with you, your family, and your guests, and capture a complete record of the day.

Your photographer will capture stunning shots with eye-popping compositions and poses.

But just as important is their consistency across the board, including their ability to capture quieter moments, details, and candid glimpses of your loved ones to cherish forever.

Cecília & Dave | A Spring Wedding | Rochester, NY

Cecília & Dave | A Spring Wedding | Rochester, NY

I travel all over central and upstate NY for weddings. The finger lakes, the Adirondacks, the capital region, sometimes even over into other states! But, even though Rochester is only an hour and a half away, I don’t actually shoot up that way very often. So, it was a fun and new adventure for me as I met up with CecÍlia and Dave on their wedding day. Their wedding took place in the new lakeside building in the Abraham Lincoln Park, and let me tell you…that is one gorgeous hidden gem.  Trees, water, a beautiful new building, honestly there’s not a whole lot more you could want in a wedding venue if the outdoor vibe is your jam! When I got to the location and wandered around, it made me think of camping, so serene, quiet and calming. Exactly the type of spot I love to shoot in.

CecÍlia and Dave only booked me a few weeks before their wedding, so I didn’t have a ton of time to get to know them before hand, which always leaves me a little nervous, but there was definitely not any reason to be. Dave and CecÍlia are warm, kind, loving people, and they welcomed me into their wedding day with their family and friends.

It was an honor to capture their lakeside vows, which were streamed live to Brazil for CecÍlia’s family who could not make it. I witnessed and documented touching speeches from their beloved friends and created gorgeous portraits of these two sweet souls.

I say it every time and I will keep on saying it, I am forever and always honored by my couples that trust in me and allow me to document such a special day of their lives. I am so glad that I got be there for them on their wedding day, and I’m excited to share their photos with you.

Enjoy!

Whitney & Brad | An Otesaga Resort Hotel Wedding | Cooperstown, NY

Whitney & Brad | An Otesaga Resort Hotel Wedding | Cooperstown, NY

When you have a winter wedding in upstate, NY there is a certain risk you are taking. It could be frigid and cold with negative temperatures. There could be 3 feet of snow on the ground with more falling. But, there is also the chance you could end up like Whitney and Brad with the perfect day of sunshine and snowflakes.

I couldn’t believe it as we stepped outside for the first look. Perfect fluffy flakes were falling around us. As if that wasn’t enough, the sun peeked through the clouds illuminating the two as we took photos on the grounds of the Otesaga.

Besides our magical portrait session, there were so many beautiful pieces to this wedding day. Getting ready surrounded by her family and friends, the wedding ceremony officiated by Whitney’s brother, beautiful and heartfelt toasts celebrating both Brad, Whitney and Whitney’s late father. I feel so honored that I was there to document it and I hope you’ll enjoy these photos of your day just as much as I did.
