Holler for October peeps! This month is moving along quite smoothly right now and finally the rain has stopped! It was getting gloomy there for a while but it looks like we have a nice stretch ahead. Speaking of nice weather there was no shortage of that Saturday October 2, 2010 for Bri & Adam. Just a wonderful day from start to finish. Bri was a super organized bride, she really had it all together. We arrived at the hotel and she was ready to hop into the gown. April from A&Co Salon was putting on Bri’s lips when we arrived, always a nice finishing touch to photograph. Before I knew it we were at Saratoga National searching for a nice shaded spot to do some photos, anyone who shoots at SNGC knows that shade is hard to come by. I mean it is a golf course after all. After Bri and Adam had their super cute first look we knocked out all those family shots and it was onto the course for some of my trademark Saratoga National stuff. Per Brianna’s request and vision Kris Ann of Fleurtacious Designs had an all themed blue and orange ceremony space just waiting for wedding guests and a bride and groom. So colorful. Once these two love birds exchanged some rings and broke a glass we quickly headed back out for some late light images. Boy was it cold then! The wind was kicking a little and the ground was like a cold wet sponge from all the rain the day before. My dogs were frozen but the shots were totally worth it. The day was now in the hands of Saratoga National and our buddy DJ Music Man Mike Garrasi. Great working with Mike two days in a row, we’re spoiled! Another wonderful wedding for two awesome people. Bri & Adam congrats to you both and thanks for choosing us to capture this big day! All the best.


Shoes and a dress… hotel chairs always work for photographing shoes.. ever notice that?
