Erlowest Extravaganza — Rikki & John’s off the charts Lake George wedding
I’ve been thinking about what I could say about this wedding–luckily, we have photos to show you what it was like, because I don’t think I quite have words to convey the feeling of this event. 😉 Amazing, beautiful, spectacular, gorgeous? Yes, it was all of those things…but so much more. One of my memories of this day will always be the heat index of 105 degrees. Combined with our 12 hour shoot…sure, it was a lot. But when all the people you’re working with–our clients and their families and friends, as well as everyone behind the scenes–are completely awesome from beginning to end…well, it made the heat a lot easier to take. So infinite thanks to Rikki & John, Karen, and everyone involved in making this day truly one for the record books, in all the very best ways.
Also, the creative team of The Inn at Erlowest, Fine Affairs, and Surroundings Floral did a superhuman job of creating a truly unique feel. I’ve shot many Erlowest weddings, but I’ve never seen it look anything like it did on Rikki & John’s day. Our Wedding Planner/Mother of the Bride addressed every detail you can imagine, and then some!

evelyn & natasha, the inn at erlowest, lake george, ny
I remember how pumped I was when I got the email last year from Natasha and Evelyn saying they decided to book me, even though our prices were a little over their budget. “We think you’re worth it,” the note said. Of course, that was really nice, but the business part of all this aside, I just really liked these two. They’re really smart and fun and the feelings they have for each other are so readily apparent. Next, fast forward to their wedding day, and we had the very real pleasure of photographing all of the fun and all of those feelings…and yes, our brides were just as much fun to work with as I knew they would be! Every wedding we document has its own unique character, and is different in many ways from every other–I think this is one of the things I enjoy the most about being a wedding photographer. But as I always say, if we’ve done our job well, all that is very clear from the photos we shoot, so this is definitely enough words from me. Enjoy!

Thanks to all!
June Farms Wedding
We loved working with Amanda & Bryan on their spectacular June Farms wedding, and were honored to be a part of it. There’s no doubt that June Farms has a look and a feel and an overall vibe that is unique in the area, and these two were a perfect fit–cool and fun as could be. All the very best to this awesome couple! Enjoy this little glimpse into their spectacular day…
Ashley & Mike’s engagement session
Ashley & Mike are planning a very cool Troy wedding at Lucas Confectionery for later this summer, but we wanted to do some photos that would have a different look and feel, too. So we got hooked up with The Berlin and June Farms, two of Matt Baumgartner’s locations, also in Rensselaer County, and it couldn’t have been better. The Berlin is upscale and funky and something unique in the area–you’ll see what I mean. And June Farms is nothing short of awesome…if you haven’t been you should definitely check it out. Enjoy the photos!
