Here we go, another fresh blog for you!! 

This wedding was such a blast, I wish we could go back and do it all again!

Amber and Christian had their wedding in Lake Placid - one of our favorite places to shoot! When we arrived in Lake Placid on the morning of their wedding there were threats of rain and it was cloudy, but thankfully the rain held off, and we got some amazing shoots! 

We first met up with Amber and Christian in Albany when we shot their engagement session in the late spring. It was the perfect day and we had a blast! Despite it being our first time officially meeting them, we hit if off right away. I could have photographed them all day. So it goes without saying that their wedding day was going to be amazing; and it was!
