We’ve Moved!

It’s official! We have moved the Upstate Photographers studio!

We’re didn’t go far — our new bigger, cooler studio is just a few blocks away from the old space. You can find us at 169 River Street, 2nd Floor, Troy NY.

As before, we are open by appointment, so please call, text, or email ahead of visiting.

Why are we moving? More studio space, more storage, natural window light as an option to shoot with, in addition to our existing studio flash. We have lots of new environments to shoot in, including brick walls.

It was bittersweet leaving our old space — so many good memories of some great shoots with some wonderful clients there over the last four and a half years.

But we’re leaning forward — our new space is going to let us do projects that would have been difficult before. Hope to see you here soon!

All the best,
Paul and Brenda

Jaime and Matthew’s Saratoga Springs Wedding

From a Central Park, NYC engagement session to their beautiful wedding at Saratoga National in Saratoga Springs, NY, the time we spend with Jaime and Matt is always full of fun and happiness. We also had the pleasure of photographing their rehearsal dinner the night before their wedding at Forno Bistro in Saratoga, which gave us the opportunity to meet their closest family and friends (not to mention taste the fabulous food at Forno’s!). It is always wonderful to see a wedding couple surrounded with so much love and support!

Reverend Joy Burke presided over the lovely ceremony, after which we spent some time out on the beautiful grounds of the Saratoga national Golf Course with Jaime and Matt. Despite the very chilly mid-October weather, they had a stellar portrait session. This couple really knows how to throw a party too — The Audio Stars put on a great show and kept the dance floor full the entire night, AND our very own Upstate Photographer’s Photostation was hopping too!

Join us in wishing Jaime and Matt much happiness in their new marriage!

Amanda and George’s Fall Wedding – Sneak Peek!

Amanda and George were married on a cold and blustery day in early October 2012, but there was nothing cold about their party. They chose the beautiful Hiland Park Country Club in Queensbury New York, and after a lovely outdoor ceremony, DJ Greg Frasier kept the guests rocking deep into the night, and the photos everyone made at the Upstate Photographers Photo Station were priceless! There were so many great moments captured from this wedding that it was hard to pick just a few pictures for the sneak peek — but we did — and you’ll just have to wait a couple more weeks to see the rest. Join us in wishing Amanda and George the very best!

Laura and Aaron at the Hall of Springs

Laura and Aaron celebrated their outdoor wedding with 180 of their friends and family, beside the reflecting pool at the Hall of Springs in Saratoga Springs, NY. October 5th was the perfect Upstate NY Fall day with plenty of sunshine and warmth and sparkling Fall foliage. Laura and Aaron chose to do a first sighting, and it was such a sweet moment when Aaron saw his bride to be for the first time on their wedding day! After the outdoor ceremony, we headed inside the Hall Of Springs for a rockin’ reception party headlined by the NY Players and featuring our own Upstate Photographers Photo Station. This couple really knows how to throw a party! We wish Laura and Aaron all the best! XOXXOO!

Chelsea and Andrew’s Wedding

Chelsea and Andrew chose the lovely Pruyn House Barn and grounds for their early October wedding. It was freezing cold and threatening to rain from time to time, but all were warm and cosy inside the rustic historical barn. It was a great party and they ended it all with a spirited (and loud!) singalong with their college friends.

Jess and Adam's Wedding at Canfield Casino

Jess and Adam at Canfield Casino

One of the reasons we love photographing weddings is that we get to work with some of the most wonderful couples! Jess and Adam are the kind of people whose sensibility and genuine love of each other just make those around them happy. We had the pleasure of working with them on their engagement session in Saratoga, and we knew then that their wedding day would be wonderful! They chose the beautiful Canfield Casino for their venue, and arranged for a private ride on the carousel in Congress park with their bridal party after the ceremony. It was a joyful day, and we were so happy to be able to share it with them!
