So, it’s been a little dreary here in New York and wedding season is charing along ahead of us and I look forward to all we have ahead in 2017!! It’s still cool to go back through and find inspiration in some awesome weddings we have already been a part of.
I thought I would share wedding detail inspiration with you over the next couple of weeks. Here is a favorite for sure with Sasha and Randal’s rustic rock n’ roll themed wedding with a hint of Game of Thrones thrown in.
The wedding was hosted by the beautiful Maple Shade Farms in Delhi, NY . The flowers and details were orchestrated by Abby Wilson who runs the farm with her husband for happy couples looking for their upstate New York destination wedding.
Enjoy the lovely!
January 2017 has started out in lovely style! I love winter engagement shoots. It gives a very cool feel and look to images, but then again Christian and Keziah are pretty cool themselves.
I am not sure I have so much with people that I have just met, but this photo shoot was nothing short of a blast to do with this amazing couple. What a wedding this will be!!!
In fond memory of Mike and Loretta.
This fall and winter we had the privilege of working with Marjie, a communications intern from SUNY Cobleskill. During the summer months we thought it would be fun to go to a few Main Street businesses and ask them why they chose Middleburgh to invest their life and work. We compiled a few of their answers into a little video vlog.
It started out as a project without knowing that two very lovely people would pass away before the video went live at the end of the year.
Today we watch this video with heavy hearts knowing that our Main Street will never be the same. Today we realize that life is never a promise, that tomorrow is never certain and that it’s never too redundant to say ‘I love you’ over and over and over again.
Be sad they are gone, be happy we knew them, be grateful for their legacy, be inspired by who they are. We will miss them both so dearly. To family and dear friends, may their voices never fade and their lives forever be in your hearts. We are truly sorry for your loss.
Thank you to Marjie for completing this video. Thank you to Middleburgh for being the very town to which many call home and treasured souls like this exist.
**please note this video was cut and processed before the sad passing of our Mrs. K. (Loretta Kennedy)

This is how we do upstate NY! We met Diana and Jay at Maple Shade Farms in Delhi to spend some time photographing and celebrating their engagement with their two beautiful young girls!
Despite temps barely creaking past 20 degrees, this family was so much fun hang out with (even if we could see our breath).
Enjoy some high lights of Maple Shade Farm in the snow! Next time you see Diana and Jay it will be in July 🙂 We are hoping there is no snow for their wedding day.
Dear Kate and John,
Thank you for having us as your wedding photographers for your amazing Henry Hill Farm wedding! You and your family and friends were genuinely a pleasure to laugh with and capture throughout the day.
November was kind and provided an amazing backdrop to your vows and your promise of love and happiness to each other.
Not to mention we loved working with Eric Haley as your DJ and BBQ Delights for your catering, while Robin was a gracious to host to all of us for your event. Your hair by Glory Addie Hair and Make up and your bridal make up by Color Me Gorgeous were just the final touches you needed for your amazing day!
The flowers created by family and the entire day created by you, thank you. Your memories are our memories and we are happy to be apart of them. Your entire wedding gallery will be ready soon!!
For now, enjoy your high lights.

“I will never recover from you, so let me be your forever and when the world offers a remedy for a broken heart I’ll refuse because my heart breaks every day for you and it breaks in the most beautiful places”
Dear Alyssa and Bill
November was made more beautiful with your “I do” and the sunshine seemed just a little more brilliant at the Hiland Country Club. The day seemed to fly by, but I think my favorite part of your day is how much laughter there was! You will see in some of these images that your laughter was the best detail about this wedding
Thank you for allowing us to photograph your precious moments and be a part of this time in your life.
Enjoy your highlights, your full gallery is almost ready!

Kathryn and Adam found warmth and forever on the first really cold day of the year in October. Despite the rain, wind and chilly air Kathryn and Adam had so many sweet moments to warm them right to their toes.
It was a day of sweetness and laughter and an awesome bridal party who grabbed umbrellas and smiles and made sure their friends had the best day ever.
It truly was. As the rain poured down outside, the light of this romantic story lit up the inside of the Tater Barn.
This day went down as a memory and for everyone involved, no one could walk away without their hearts being changed and hope for the future.
Congratulations Kathryn and Adam, it was a joy and a pleasure.
Thank you to Shelly Wood and Mellisner Misner for capturing this wedding for Amber J Photography.
“It was just a touch, it was just a smile and then somehow, it was my forever.”
Just a little glimpse into my Saturday with these two beautiful people. More coming soon!
Before the snowflakes flew this weekend, Alexandra and Ron stole one of the last beautiful days of fall for their engagement shoot with us!
Downtown Troy is the perfect backdrop for this fun loving couple and I am really excited for their wedding next year. It’s an absolute blast being able to have these moments with couples before their big day.
So, here is some autumn lovely to brighten up your Sunday!!
Enjoy Alexandra and Ron, your full gallery is coming this week!
