Kingston NY Wedding - Back Stage Productions and The Mohican

Where do I even start....? Coby and Clinton were married on January 28 with their ceremony at The Mohican and their reception at Back Stage Productions in Kingston, New York. Their wedding was both untraditional and unique- just like they are. When two people are as in love as Coby and Clinton… really, everything else is easy.

Coby is pretty much the mayor of Kingston. She grew up in the area and has worked at many of the dive bars and great restaurants all around town. I met her somewhere close to 2005 when I first moved to the area. She was always welcoming and friendly with a smile on her face and some quick wit banter.

Wedding at The Garrison - A+D

Amanda and Dan got married on September 23 at The Garrison in Garrison, NY. They have been together for over ten years, and have built an amazing network of families and friends that we are honored to be a part of. Before the wedding, Amanda found out that she had cancer and Dan called us right away to schedule their connection session. She wanted to have their session immediately because one week later she was having surgery. And so we all went out in the bitter cold of February and took some of my favorite pictures ever. We laughed. We learned about each other. We told stories. We took damn good pictures. They are both such awesome and amazing people.

Apple Greens Golf Club Wedding - Pine and Jeff

Pine and Jeff were married on May 7, 2016 with their ceremony and reception at Apple Greens Golf Club. Pine and Jeff are serious outdoor people. She works in the Adirondacks, taking care of nature and making sure trails and forests are well maintained. She’s one of those rare people who enjoy camping in the snow. They go heli-skiing. They don’t mind taking chances and just going for it. They’re crazy.

Red Maple Vineyard Wedding | converse. horses. lots of laughter.

Ben and Lindsey were married on October 1, 2016 with their ceremony and reception at Red Maple Vineyard. The day dawned cool and rainy. I met the girls at the hotel for hair and makeup before we headed out to the venue to get her dressed. Lindsey and her entire wedding party wore matching Converse Chucks - so cool.

Being a Red Maple Vineyard Wedding Photographer is amazing because there is this room upstairs at the venue that has just the most amazing stained glass windows stretched across the back wall. I had Lindsey get ready in front of those windows so we could capture her beautiful dress up against those stunning colors. Once she was ready, we did a first look with her dad. It was super emotional. They have a really tight bond that's totally visible in the way they look at each other. There is something so special about a father-daughter first look... witnessing that moment when a Father sees his little girl all grown up is so touching. I may have totally cried too.

Livingston Weddings at Oak Hill, Hudson NY - Paige and Josh

Paige and Josh are a rare breed. They were married on October 15 with their ceremony and reception at Oak Hill in Hudson, NY. We try our best to meet our couples before their wedding day, but we didn’t get the chance to meet Paige and Josh until the day of their big event. Sometimes, it takes a while for couples to warm up to us. Not Paige and Josh! These two invited us in with open arms, and were so lovely and welcoming that it was a true pleasure to be a part of their day.
