Tara and Mark: A Capital Wedding!

When Tara and Mark called and told us they were holding their reception at the Empire Plaza at the New York State Capital, we knew we had to be there. We have shot other types of events at the Plaza many times, and knew it had the potential to be an exceptionally beautiful place for a wedding.

And of course, it turned out to be true. Tara’s meticulous planning made it an extraordinary event; Mark’s family came in all the way from Saskatchewan, and both Brenda and I felt honored to be a part of their wedding day.

Here are just a few highlights. Click here to see more!

Megan and Evan’s wedding at Ventosa Vineyards

So we’re making the long drive to Geneva, NY for Megan and Evan’s outdoor wedding at Ventosa Vineyards, and the weather is not looking good. We drove through some massive thunderstorms.

And the weather kept us guessing right up to the wire. The venue was so sure it was going to be rainy, they didn’t even set up the chairs outdoors — until Evan arrived and logically suggested that they set them up just in case it doesn’t rain.
And there we were — literally two minutes before the wedding, it was still raining. But then, as if on cue, the very last moment — the rain stopped and the sun came out. Some people just know how to live!
The view off the terrace at the Vineyard was stunning — what a great place to have a wedding. We can’t wait to go back. Tip: If you go there (and you should!) don’t miss the Saggio — a truly excellent Bordeaux blend.
Megan and Evan, their bridal party, friends and family were wonderful to work with — it was the kind of wedding that makes you glad you’re a wedding photographer!

Emily and Scott

Emily and Scott are from the Philadelphia area, and brought their entire family up to the Rensselaer Institute for a weekend of relaxation and wedding celebration. It was our first wedding at the Rensselaer Institute, and it is a stunning venue! Emily and Scott were an amazing, fun-loving, family-oriented couple, and Scott looks so much like Bill Maher, it’s scary!
