Cady & Mark are married!! | Syracuse, NY wedding photographer

Monday, November 3rd, 2014

I had been looking forward to this wedding ever since meeting Cady and Mark during our initial consultation and photographing their engagement session. They did not disappoint. Their wedding was so much fun to photograph-full of laughter and joy and a wonderful relaxed attitude despite some last minute setbacks with their ceremony location.

Admiring the dress and the rainy view.

Coleman’s bar is their neighborhood bar and also where they had their first date so it was natural for them to stop there after saying their vows.

Colin and Binglei are married!!| Syracuse, NY wedding photographer

Friday, October 31st, 2014

Congratulations to Colin and Binglei who were married on Sept 6th. Tara and I had such fun wandering around the ESF campus with them (where they met) for pre-wedding photos until rain pushed us away. They then had a lovely daytime wedding at Camp Brockway in Pratt’s Falls Park.

These two were such good sports–out in the rain with me–always laughing.

Here are a few of my favorites from their wedding.

Eleora & Jacob are married!!| Syracuse, NY wedding photographer

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014

Eleora and Jacob were married outside at the Lily Pond  on an unsettled day with dropping temperatures and threatening rain. The weather was unexpected, but the wedding was amazing and the weather added to the beauty of the day. My wonderful second photographer Tara was along. Enjoy a few of our favorites from the day.

Eileen and Kyle are married!!!| Syracuse, NY wedding photographer

Monday, December 30th, 2013

The end of my 2013 season was hectic with work, sessions, preparations for our trip to New Zealand, rehersals for my youngest who played Annie in a Syracuse Children’s Theater production and all the other little things that make blogging way down on my to-do list.

In the rush, I never blogged my last 2013 wedding of Eileen and Kyle even though it was one of my favorites.

The day started at Eileen’s childhood home.

Her dog (who is very attached to her) made it into many photos and helped to create many favorite images.

Allison & Tim are married!| Syracuse, NY wedding photographer

Friday, October 25th, 2013

On a rainy, foggy October 5th Allison and Tim were married. Things started off in Fayetteville at Miracles. I’m pretty sure some of Allison’s bridesmaids could make it as comedians. I loved the show and Allison was kept laughing for most of the getting ready.

Untitled-1

It was great fun to include one of my best friends, Annmarie in the wedding day photos. She is the person on the cover of Syracuse Woman’s magazine talking about her experience with breast cancer and her awesome Stupid Dumb Breast Cancer blog/fundraising maching.

Untitled-2

Love these shots.

I think Allison was telling her mom that she was not allowed to cry.

Don’t you think Allison looks like Grace Kelly? So beautiful.

Allison & Jason are married!!| Syracuse, NY wedding photographer

Tuesday, September 24th, 2013

Allison and Jason were married on a perfect August day in Hamilton, NY. We were not able to arrange an engagement session or in-person meeting before the wedding, but I showed up to meet two of the sweetest people and Allison was just a natural beauty.

See what I mean.

I am finally getting around to sharing the amazing wedding of Palma and Chris. The wedding and reception took place at what must be my favorite location, Frog Pond Bed and Breakfast in Skaneateles. I think I would like to tell all my future couples to get married here.

Palma also had one of the most beautiful dresses I have photographed.

Congratulations to Samantha and Grant who were married on the beautiful campus of Hamilton College. It was great to work once again with Shannon from Wedding Planning Plus who coordinated the day.

Here is a little look at their wedding day. Thanks to Tara who has been an awesome second shooter for me and got the day started getting these photos of Grant.

Julie & Binh are married!!!| Syracuse, NY wedding photographer

Tuesday, June 4th, 2013

Julie and Binh were married on a brisk, lovely day at Holiday Valley resort. While both of them live and work at Syracuse they wanted their wedding to have a family reunion feel with friends and family having lots of things to do before and after the ceremony.

jb033

jb034Julie ordered a bunch of flowers and then on the morning of the wedding she asked her mom to make her bouquet and her maid of honor made her own bouquet as well. She just said, pick what ever flowers you like–make it as big or as small as you want. I think they did a great job.

jb035

jb036

While the flowers were being made, the guests and Binh did some golfing.
