When Susan called from Texas asking to do an engagement shoot in February in Upstate NY, the first thing I asked was “Do you have a warm winter coat and high boots?” She and Andrew are both Texas natives, but Andy recently took a job in Upstate NY. Andy had discovered Saratoga and was excited to show it off to Susan when she came up for a visit in February. So Susan brought her warmest winter gear and we met at Canfield Casino and Congress Park to play in the snow.
Andy really wanted to have a special reenactment picture done of his proposal because he wanted to propose in Upstate, so we headed out into a snow bank and he got down on one knee to propose. Sweet moment! This couple ended their session with a rambunctious snow ball fight! We had great fun and give Susan props for braving knee high snow and freezing temperatures for the man she loves!

Every year we have a few couples who choose to do their engagement session in the middle of the winter. We had to reschedule Danielle and Nate’s session to work around the alternate blasts of Arctic cold and walloping snow storms — but when we finally got together on a bright winter day, they brought warm smiles and rocked Saratoga winter-style!
We started at the Hall of Springs, then headed to the Warming Hut at the park. We made a quick stop at the Gideon Putnam hotel, and the staff was gracious enough to let us roam the halls for some fun and romantic shots. We ended our session with a walk through town, and found some nooks and crannies just perfect for romance. Danielle and Nate were great to work with and didn’t even seem to mind the cold. We can’t wait till their April wedding at the Glen Sanders Mansion. Just hope the snow melts by then!

A wedding day is a big event, but it is also a day full of small moments.
A touch of a hand, a smile, yes, sometimes a tear or two. Weddings celebrate transition, growth, change, and, of course, JOY!
One of the many joys of bring a wedding photographer is the opportunity to witness all of the emotions of the day. We often see things unnoticed by others. The connections between mothers and sons and fathers and daughters can be especially poignant. We consider it a privilege to be a part of all of the special moments of the day, and we are so happy to be able to share some of them with you here.
