As I mentioned in my we had two weddings in a row at the Canfield Casino. I know right? How lucky are we? Anyway wedding number two was a blast as well. This was Laura and Joe’s big day. May 12th 2012 was probably the most requested Saturday of all during the month of May and I couldn’t be happier we were on this wedding. I’ve known Laura for quite a while. She worked for the special events office for the City of Albany again back when I would shoot alive at five. After that I know she worked with wedding coordinator Katie O’ before setting up shop in NYC. Needless to say Laura was on her game when planning and coordinating this wedding. She had her friend Katie O (who doubled as a guest) coordinating the day which was awesome. I’m so damn lucky this month with all the wedding coordinators I’m working with. Anyway, all great weddings have great teams and I must throw some crazy props to my wife Kris Ann of Fleurtacious Designs for absolutely knocking this wedding out the (congress) park 😉 She smoked it! Again, we got totally spoiled with the weather too. It was just an all around beautiful and comfortable day to get married! We did all the photos ahead of time in Congress Park before heading to St Mary’s in Ballston Spa for the ceremony. After that we all ventured back to the Canfield Casino where Classe Catering awaited with food and drink ready. After some sunset portraits (which I’m in love with) we headed back in and they partied their butts off thanks to the sounds of the Perrone Bros Entertainment. However, if they weren’t dancing, they were in the Elario Photo Booth all night long! I had to talk Laura into the photo booth and I know she’s glad she did it because she only told me like 20 times that night! Also they now have over 700 extra images of their friends and family having a blast! I must say, I had a blast myself. Working with you guys was a pleasure and a treat. We’re honored to have been part of your big day and I think we should get together next year on May 12 and do it again! Right?? Thanks again, love you guys!


Some awesome details. Who has two pairs of shoes? Laura does..

This is how a tuxedo should fit. I call this perfection!

I’m telling you, it was the kind of day that makes you just wanna hang out in the park.

I love the red hair illuminated !

A nice forehead kiss.

Some details of the head table..

The color palette was amazing.


The Elario Photo Booth.. as I mentioned above I had to kick and scream with Laura to get her to go for it but I’d bet the house she’d tell you all how great of a decision it was!

So fun.

Crazy people!

Congrats you two!!

  1. the bride was so beautiful and i loved her dress. such a classic natural beauty.

  2. I’m slightly obsessed with the bridesmaids dresses and that collage you put together featuring their unique flower arrangements!! And that Facebook teaser looks like it could be a postcard or a spectacular version of one of those pictures thats already in picture frames when you buy them. Also, everyone should have a photo booth! It’s always great to see how much fun everyone had! Love everything!
