Mari, Michael, & Rosi's Family Session in Congress Park | Saratoga Springs Family Photographer Blog

This is my favorite time of year for family sessions. The air cools; the leaves begin to turn shades of gold, red, and orange; the happy chaos of holiday buzz begins.

On a crisp morning, I met up with Mari & Michael and their sweet daughter, Rosi for their family session in Congress park. Their adorable pup, Jack, came along for the fun too.

We also ventured over to Saratoga State Park to capture some more Fall magic. Rosi perfectly capped-off our session with a nap. :)

I had so much fun photographing their session! Here’s a quick look with a candid ending.

Donna & Bob's Lake Placid Elopement | New York Wedding Photographer

Life threw some curveballs at this vivacious, fun-loving couple during the wedding planning, and in the days leading up to their I Do’s. They persevered and navigated the hurdles with the best outlook (you guys rock!).

As a reward they were given the most gorgeous day in the Adirondack mountains. They tied the knot in an intimate ceremony, surrounded by their loved ones. Afterward, Donna and Bob took me to a spot they love to call their own whenever they’re hiking in the area. So honored to be a part of their Big Day! Here’s a tiny peek.

Kristin & Nick's Lake George Wedding | New York Wedding Photographer Blog

Hopping back on the blog to cap off the weekend with a little love story sneak peek.

Kristin and Nick have been lovebirds for some time and recently decided to tie the knot at Blue Water Manor. Lake George has been a long loved summer haunt since childhood for Nick and is a special place for these two as a couple. It seems only fitting that they say their vows overlooking The Queen of American Lakes, surrounded by their children, family and friends.

Here’s a tiny look at their day.

Breana & Jose's Ballston Spa Wedding | Saratoga Springs, New York Wedding Photographer

Happy to be back from a blog-break and share this out-of- the-box fairytale wedding sneak peek.

Breana & Jose are two of the sweetest people I have met. They kept the ceremony traditional, seeing each other for the first time when Breana walked down the aisle, and it was so emotional!

They partied the night away at their Alice In Wonderland themed reception (Breana’s fave fairytale) surrounded by their family & friends. Here’s a look at their day.

Congratulations guys!

Pete, Lisa, & Olivia's Lake George Family Session | Lake George Family Photographer

I love photographing children. They’re vibrant, they have amazing takes on just about everything, and they know how to have some serious fun. What I didn’t expect at this family session was making a fast friend.

I met up with Pete, Lisa and their beautiful daughter Olivia on a gorgeous morning in Lake George. We had the beach all to ourselves with the exception of some ducks. I can neither confirm nor deny that I may or may not have encouraged the feeding of said ducks, and in the process, Olivia got the idea that I was awesome! (or just cool, but still)

I had an awesome time capturing some fun moments for this family and I was sad to leave my new buddy, who by the end of our shoot was on her way to becoming the best assent ever. Here’s a tiny peek at their family session.

Welcome Baby Ava: Saratoga Springs Newborn Photographer

A couple of weeks ago, Nicki and Dan became parents for the first time. I had the honor of meeting and photographing baby Ava at one week old and oh my goodness, MELT!! This tiny little babe was so alert, so strong, and blessed us with some funny moments. She is a force of nature already! Here’s a tiny peek at her casual in-home newborn session.

Congratulations guys!

Nicole and Michael's Wedding Day: New York Wedding Photographer

It has been a long time since a parent has reached out to me on behalf of a couple during the planning process. Paul, Nicole’s dad, was the sweetest and you could totally hear the excitement in his voice as he filled me in on the details of Nicole & Michael’s wedding plans. More than that, you could hear how much he loved his daughter and how awesome a pair these two would make. And after meeting them in person, they felt like fast friends and family.

I was so honored to capture their big day and I had so much fun with them location hopping between their church, the schenectady Rose Garden, and Daley’s on Yates. The energy at their reception was palpable and it was so touching to see them surrounded by LOVE. (Read: I cried… Meredith cried… and I may have gotten teary all over again posting this sneak peek…)

Here’s a tiny peek at their wedding day.

Tiffany & Joe's Minnewaska I Do's | New York Elopement Photographer

Sometimes life likes to test you- to make the seemingly simple become an endless maze of tasks to navigate before you reach your destination. This was the case for Tiffany & Joseph.

They began their elopement planning as any other couple, happily sorting out little details along the way until their vision was perfectly fleshed out. And then the first domino fell. Their venue fell through; their officiant fell ill; thunder and lightning threatened to cancel their mountaintop plans; and the governor stole their last location!

They persevered and with a little (literal) help from my friend, Meredith, who performed their ceremony at the last minute ( THANK YOU!!!), these two lovebirds said I do in a private ceremony by a waterfall’s edge while their 3 children looked on. They made it!!

Here’s a tiny peek at their day.

Jessica & Chad: A Lake George Engagement

I met up with Jessica and Chad last week to photograph their engagement session on beautiful Lake George.

We completely lucked out with some gorgeous weather and had a fun time strolling on the beach at Shepard’s Park, walking the pier, and exploring the grounds of Top of The World Gold Golf Resort.

We definitely shared some laughs ( sometimes I say funny things ) and loved taking in those the amazing views. I cannot wait to capture their Big Day in photos!

Here’s a tiny peek at their session. Enjoy!

Suzanne & Matt's Yaddo Maternity Session, Saratoga Springs

It was such a pleasure to meet up with Suzanne and Matt on Friday. We had the perfect early summer evening (despite the mosquitos!) and the grounds of Yaddo were virtually all to ourselves.

We shared lots of laughs (especially after Matt did finger guns and belly pointing) and I had so much fun capturing this special time for them. Baby is due in only a couple of weeks!! So exciting! Here’s a peek at their session.

Angel & Ricky's Chinese Tea Ceremony at The Mansion Inn

Guys… I already love what I do, SO much, but when I was invited to document a traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony, I kind of squealed with joy!

Angel & Ricky took over The Mansion inn for their intimate family affair. Their theme and attire was a nod to 1920’s Shanghai with so many details celebrating Angel’s Chinese heritage. The aroma of Chef Rick’s artfully prepared traditional Chinese cuisine filled the air while family and friends gathered round bamboo dotted cocktail tables, laughing, hugging, and sharing moments together.

Here’s a tiny peek at their day. Enjoy!

Much love! TM


Jasmin and Harley's Hindu Ceremony: Albany Wedding Photographer

It was such an honor to be invited to capture another milestone for this family. I met Jasmin and Harley at the Hindu Temple in Albany last week to document their beautiful ceremony in the Hindu tradition. 

I loved watching them go through the rituals together. Everyone looked so beautiful!! Here's a tiny peek at their day.

Congratulations guys!

Amy & Austin's Upstate Wedding: Saratoga Wedding Photographer

This was the first day that really felt like fall; the air was crisp, the breeze blowing, and the morning rain had tapered off leaving behind the most perfect moody sky.

The view from Amy's family home was breathtaking! The mountaintop vista clad with color drenched leaves was only eclipsed by this beautiful couple & their loving bond.

From their wedding stationery to their vows {including Star Wars socks and recessional music}, Amy & Austin were reflected in every detail. Here's a peek at their Big Day. 

Congratulations!

Vicky & Simon's Wedding In The Country: Saratoga Wedding Photographer

Not all the weddings I capture are grand affairs; some weddings are quick vows in a courthouse and some are serene living room soirees. Vicky & Simon tied the knot in a fashion true to their spirit and story.

Classic cars and trucks rolled up to a roadside chapel on this balmy Saturday afternoon. The intimate crowd of friends formed and gathered inside, buzzing with anticipation.

Vicky and Simon have been friends since high school. The entry to the chapel even displayed a sweet testament to their bond- a portrait of them at Senior Prom. Life had led them in different directions, but 40 years later!!! they got to marry "The One." My heart bursts with love for them. Here is a tiny peek at their day. 

Congratulations!

Loretta & Emily's Rustic Wedding in The Woods: Saratoga Wedding Photographer

It's no secret that I love rustic weddings, but this one was storybook perfect.

Loretta & Emily said their vows encircled in lush greenery, reminiscent of the Pacific North West, and accented by gorgeous details from The Posie Peddler. Their guests enjoyed delectable delights from Lily & The Rose and danced the night away before cozying up by the bonfire. Here's a peek at these ethereal beauties on their Big Day.

Congratulations guys! XO TM

Ashley & Quinn's Old Tater Barn Wedding: Upstate Wedding Photographer

Ashly & Quinn's day started off rainy & grey, but cleared just in time for their beautiful outdoor ceremony at The Old Tater Barn {whew!}. They were surrounded by close friends and family as they said their vows.

As evening set in, they released balloons to honor their passed loved ones and their guests crafted s'mores by the bonfire. Tiffany blue dotted details from bridesmaids dresses to the delicate ribbon encircling Ashley's gown. And did I mention there were some Harry Potter details too? It was a blast!

Here's a peek at their Big Day.

Congrats guys! XO TM
