jamie & eamon: franklin plaza

Well hello there everyone! This is one of those weddings I couldn’t wait to blog. Not only because we got GREAT images but Jamie & Eamon are blog all stars. You might remember them from their “fair game, engagement session“.  It was probably one of the most popular things I posted last season. Well since that session I couldn’t wait to point the camera back at them! I imagine it’s fun when the people who follow this blog get to see their engagement photos and then see their wedding photos. By this point you might feel like you know them!

We arrived at the hotel where the ladies were getting ready. Sitting in a stool in her robe was Jamie getting some final touches from Flawless by Tina. So we shot a ton of getting ready stuff then it was out to the mean streets of Troy (kidding) for some portraits with Jamie and the girls. These photos are some of my favorite images yet! The flowers were awesome as they always are when the talents of my wife Kris Ann also know as Miss Fleurtacious Designs is on the team. Speaking of Jamie and Eamon’s team of wedding professional the one and only Al Woodard was capturing the motion oh so well as he always does. Next stop was St Augustines Catholic Church in Troy where these high school sweethearts of 10 years to their date would tie the knot. The priest said it was 10 years ago today when they started dating. See? I take notes. Eamon told me he was a little nervous too. Jamie seemed pretty cool even when “here comes the bride” started playing. We loved shooting in that church not only because of the light but its air-conditioned too! Once they were pronounced husband and wife it was off to some awesome spots in downtown Troy. As I expected, we all captured some incredible photos and had them off to Franklin Plaza where this bride and groom attended their cocktail hour. Know this, all Elario brides & grooms will attend their cocktail hour. Thats how we roll. The party was then into the hands of Mike Emery’s New York Players where there’s no stopping that force. The result, a packed dance floor all night long. Both Jamie and Eamon were on that dance floor all night long except when they were goofing in the Elario Photo Booth! I can’t say enough good things about this one gang. I hope this blog post finds these two on their honeymoon wherever they are. Guys, we thank you again and again for trusting us and having us! Congrats to you both!

Love that light!

This reminded me of that. 😉

Again, I can take all kinds of images of brides & grooms but these always seem to be my favs.

So on Jamie’s facebook she asked her friends “vintage rolls royce or vintage bentley????” I voted Bentley. I won 😉

My facebook teaser.

If you get a vintage car its only right that one photo of it is in b&w right?

The around the corner came some of that good good light.

Just in time for the romantic shots.
