We had a great 2014 Wedding Season!

Our couples were all fantastic, each wedding was so unique and beautiful and we had a blast at every one! I could really go back and repeat the entire season. 

When our 2014 season approached, we decided to re-work our business model and we made the decision to scale back a little with our weddings - taking on only a limited amount for each season. The reason for this was that we wanted to be sure we were giving our couples the best we could. Sometimes, when you take on too much work you get burnt out quickly, and we didn't want that to happen! 

A big thank you go out to all of our couples - you were all so easy to work with, and not just at the wedding. Each experience was great, from our first meeting or phone conversation all the way to the end. Your familes are all wonderful, and you all are the reason why we do what we do! We love you all!

I am going to share two of my favorites bride and groom portraits from each wedding - it wasn't easy choosing because I think I was in love with every image I photographed of these wonderful couples!

Ashley and Paolo were our first wedding of the season - check out their full blog here. They gave us tons of time between their Schenectady ceremony and Franklin Plaza reception to capture images (THANK YOU!) and we were able to spend a good amoutn of time photographing these two at Union College. Such a great day and fun couple!  bride and groom at union college albany wedding photographer
