What an amazing time I had with these two! Casey and Andy are smart and fun and low key and cool as can be, and it was great getting to know them better. First, we took a beautiful hike up the Pinnacle Trail, which gets you to some spectacular views of Lake George overlooking Bolton Landing. Love the photos on the trail and from the top…just a spectacular spot. Then we were back on the trail headed down, and over to the Sagamore Resort for location (and outfit) number two. Casey and Andy’s wedding will be there in 2018–sooo can’t wait for this one–so you’ll see lots more photos of this gorgeous couple in just about a year!
In the meantime, I hope you love these…
I really like this couple a lot, and did from when I first met Amanda last year. We had a super fun Congress Park (Saratoga) engagement session, too, where I got to see first hand some of Kyle’s pretty amazing athletic skill. Can you say American Ninja Warrior? Not kidding, either.
We had an amazing day with Amanda & Kyle, and I want to thank them again for having us photograph their big day. We love shooting in downtown Albany, too, and 60 State Place is definitely one of the top wedding venues anywhere around. Working with 2Shea Catering (Deanna and Eddie killed it, as always) and DJ Fernando from Piano Man Productions, made the day even better…amazing at what they do!
Here’s just a little sampling from Amanda & Kyle’s wedding day–all the best to this great couple!

So Nicole and Zach are not my “typical” clients…if there even is such a thing. I knew from my first meeting with these two that there would be nothing ordinary about their wedding–to say I was right would be an understatement. When Nicole told me she wanted to take the Wedding Party over to the Omi Arts Center for photos with the sculptures there, my feelings were doubly confirmed.
The wedding day, as it turned out, was the only sunny day in the middle of a long stretch of rain, so that helped to put everyone in a great mood, I think. We had never worked at Shakespeare on the Hudson, in Catskill–it’s out of the box, just like our bride and groom, and yes, just as cool as it looks in these photos. There’s no doubt that all of Nicole and Zach’s choices contributed to the overall amazingness of this day, but so did their really, really cool group of friends and family members. What a bunch…from the moment we walked in the door, we felt like we were old friends with all of them.
The First Look was such a great moment–it usually is, for sure, but we really loved the look of this one, with that strong sunlight coming into the atrium of the house. Nicole and Zach’s personalities really popped in our portraits, and then the Wedding Party photos were super fun, too. Our trip to the Omi Arts Center was off the hook–no words can quite describe it, but you’ll see it all below! The ceremony is often not the most incredible part of a wedding day, to be honest, from a photographer’s point of view–in this case, though, listening to Nicole and Zach’s very personal vows, coupled with brother-in-law Ian’s hilarious and at the same time touching officiating, made me realize all over again how truly blessed we are to get to be a part of celebrations like Nicole and Zach’s.
Enjoy this photo essay of a day we were proud to be a part of.
Whoa. What an incredible day we spent at the Sagamore with Grace and Matt and their awesome friends and families. We’re so lucky to have the clients we get to work with, and we really clicked with these two. It seemed like we laughed all day long—it was amazing from beginning to end.
Grace is smart and funny and beautiful and elegant and down-to-earth and thoughtful and yes, I could go on and on. But the coolest thing? All of that applies to Matt, too (well, let’s substitute handsome for beautiful). As always, though, great wedding photos are about the relationship more than the individuals–the chemistry Grace and Matt share is clear in the photos, and says so much about who they are and what makes them go.
Then there’s the Sagamore, too,on a day like we had for this wedding. Plus, there’s our ride in the Miss Boathouse, Joe & Patti Silipigno’s amazing Hacker Craft. Hard to top, for sure—the lake and the mountains and the docks and the elegance of the hotel all combine to make it an amazing backdrop for a story like Grace and Matt’s. All the best to this great couple—hope you love the photos!
