Loved getting to hang out with Megan and Tom while I photographed their winter engagement session! They are so adorable together and they were all smiles despite being FREEZING! Even though it was cold, it was absolutely beautiful out and we wanted to take advantage of the white fluffy snowfall happening in Saratoga Springs. We started off in Congress Park before heading onto Broadway to wrap up the session, and I love this whole area of Saratoga so I’m a happy gal anytime I get the chance to photograph my couples here! These two are so incredibly sweet that they somehow managed to not laugh at me EITHER of the times I wiped out on the ice during this session. And these weren’t little slips, they were full out sprawled-on-the-ground-in-the-snow falls. Full disclosure; this isn’t even close to the first time I’ve fallen during a shoot (and I fully encourage everyone to laugh at me). Regardless of my new bruises, I had so much fun photographing these two and could not be more excited for their Saratoga wedding later this year!! Here’s a few of my favorite photos from this session - enjoy!
You remember that blizzard a few weekends ago when over a foot of snow fell throughout Central and Western NY and the temperatures were in the single digits?! Well, Katie & Seth’s wedding day was right in the middle of it. Did the weather prevent this from being an absolutely incredible celebration with loved ones from near and far sharing in love and laughter!? Not one single bit.
In fact, it didn’t even stop this bride & groom from getting outdoor portraits!! I seriously could not be more thankful (or impressed) that these two were willing to freeze with me for a little while so we could go out in the snow, because it was BEAUTIFUL! Those images are my favorites of the day, and I loved seeing how Katie & Seth couldn’t stop smiling at each other even when they probably couldn’t feel their fingers or toes – THAT IS LOVE!
Their wedding was at the Hall of Springs in Saratoga which is a gorgeous venue nestled in the middle of Saratoga State Park, and the surrounding landscape is especially beautiful when it’s been turned into a winter wonderland! Their ceremony and reception all took place in the venue’s elegant grand ballroom, and there were all the things that make an unforgettable wedding celebration: heartfelt vows, lots of happy tears, hilarious speeches, an incredible first dance, great music, and a lot of enthusiasm on the dance floor!! Katie & Seth are such gracious, kind, and fun people and I’m honored that they trusted me to photograph their wedding day. I can’t forget to mention how much we enjoyed all their family and friends as well, the whole group was outstanding and I’m so excited to share some of my favorite shots from the with you all here, enjoy!

Sarah & Craig’s families were neighbors when they were kids, so they grew up knowing each other, but it wasn’t until after college that they reconnected and started to see each other in a new light. They went out on a few dates, and the rest is history! Now here they are, husband and wife, and their wedding day couldn’t have been more perfect. From their First Look through to them being almost inseparable on the dance floor, every glance and laugh between these two make it clear that they are crazy about each other! I especially loved hearing the heartfelt vows they wrote each other during the ceremony.
I knew this was going to be an incredible wedding ever since Sarah & Craig first reached out, and I’ve especially been looking forward to it after their engagement session last summer! They are the sweetest couple, they have incredible style, they’re fun to be around, and their wedding venue was GORGEOUS! The Hall of Springs is tucked away in Saratoga State Park so it’s surrounded by beautiful scenery, and the venue itself is a historic, grandiose building with halls of brick archways extending out around it which make a really neat setting for photographs! This elegant venue was a perfect and fit for Sarah + Craig’s timeless, classic style. Every little detail and decoration that they chose was perfection!
I’ve known Sarah (and a few of the bridesmaids) since elementary school, so there were a lot of familiar faces amongst the guests and it was really special to me that she and Craig chose me to capture their special day. I have SO many favorite images that it was really hard to narrow down photographs to share here, but I hope the photos below do a good job of illustrating what a beautiful & joyful day this was. Enjoy!

And thank you to my second photographer for this wedding Lauren Lucente for doing a great job!
There have been some absolutely beautiful snow-filled (and freezing) days lately, and this was one of them! I still get cold when I think about this engagement session, but it was most definitely worth it! Morgan & Nick go to school in Miami (jealous!) so we squeezed their engagement session in while we were all in the Albany area over Christmas to spend the holiday with our families. I absolutely love the outfits they wore - they perfectly nailed coordinating without looking overly "matchy" and I'm always thrilled when someone wears the color red to a session, because it really makes the photos pop, especially when it's against the white snow in winter! Saratoga is one of my favorite places so I was excited that Morgan & Nick liked the idea of doing their engagement photos there! We started off their session in Saratoga Spa State Park by the Hall of Springs, and finished up on Broadway which was decked out for the holidays! Here are a handful of my favorites from their session - enjoy!
