Ok! It’s July and it’s hot!! This month alone we have four weddings this month at Saratoga National Golf Club and we’re setting it off with Lindsay and Chris!! You might remember these guys from their engagement session I blogged last June. I knew back then they would be an awesome bride and groom. They were so fun to photograph too! We set the day off at Lindsay’s parents home. It was a calm start of a hot day. When I arrived it was quite and I actually asked Lindsay if the bridesmaids were in the house. Once our bride was officially a bride she headed down the stairs to be greeted by her parents and two sisters. I always love those moments! We stepped outside for a little bit and photographed the ladies, they all looked stunning as did the florals by, David Michael Schmidt of Renaissance Floral Design. Once we finished up at the house it was off to the church to meet up with the guys! Then they were married! We headed up to Saratoga National Golf Club and kicked some serious butt out there. Al Woodard and myself were loving the images we came back with. The fields at SNGC are in their PRIME (pun intended) right now. Wow, I loved them so much I already printed one for the wall at SNGC! True story. The rest of the day went on flawless as usual. DJ Music Man Mike Garrasi, rocked the house like he always does too! Also in the house was the Elario Photo Booth ran by our girl, Hayden! Thanks to Hayden and the booth, Lindsay and Chris now have hundreds more images of their friends and family! I must say thank you to Lindsay and Chris! Back in April of 2011, they chose their date around our July 2012 availability. That means more to us than you know! It really does. You guys know I had a blast capturing you day too! We all did! Can we do it again soon? Kate? Erica? (no pressure). Again, thank you guys so much!! Keep the love strong for years!! Peace, JP Let me kick start your memory with one from their engagement session Now onto July 7, 2012 getting pretty!! A little help from sisters, Erica and Kate. All the Keville’s.. I loved her gown!

Ok.. lots of prettiness happening here.. And the stud, Chris.. How sweet is the front of this church?? Dad, collecting himself before he walks his daughter down the aisle. Really, this place is gorgeous. Not going to lie, it was hot in there! Mr and Mrs.. The backdrop was just perfect! Then we get to Saratoga National and see this! Such a pretty spot! My favorite image from the day. Currently this is being printed by my awesome lab as a 20×30″ canvas. It will be on the wall at SNGC Saturday. Boom!

Working out the Elario Configuration..

Ahhhh! a nice detail.. When we all woke up on July 7, 2012 there was not a blue sky… Thankfully “Mother Nature” hooked us up! The Saratoga National Ballroom by, David Michael Schmidt of Renaissance Floral Design First dance.. And of course, the sunset pics! Classic July sunset.. and backdrop “canary” was popping in the Elario Photo Booth!! Remember this Elario bride and groom from the past?? Well here’s a future Elario bride and groom… thats how they roll.. of course, the sisters! and I’ll end with this one.. congrats you two!!

  1. Loving the fields at SNGC. Amazing, amazing, amazing. I just love it as a backdrop. Gorgeous. Back to the B&G… Lindsay and Chris, you guys look incredible! Loving the mermaid dress on Lindsay. The church is really so beautiful. (Hot, I’m sure).
    Just love all the dark wood in there. Again, loving all the outdoor shots, and the close up of the hands (a little something different, but nice). The blue sky, as always, mother nature seems to cooperate for you guys (and even when she doesn’t you guys flip it nicely, or better yet, somehow make it look like mother nature really was behaving). So great to see a past B&G and future (we’ll be watching). Congrats again guys!

  2. JP,

  3. I love how you stitch the photos together for the the room shot! What a Great family and couple. They were so easy to work with and I love the transformation of the room! SNGC is so fun to work. Nice job Joe and JP! I love the photo of them in the dry grass. Great bouquet shot too! you can see the fresh lavender I cut from my garden. See you tomorrow!

  4. It’s the wonderful – positive comment from FOB that keeps us – keeping on, Thank You Dads.
    and , what a great looking couple : Lindsay & Chris are. BTW, the church especially the exterior is a photogs dream.

  5. You are every bit as good as advertised JP! Can’t wait to see the rest. We all love the pics. Glad Lindsay chose and was able to get you. Good job Lin. Thanks for making her special day even more so and thanks for capturing my little girl’s beauty.
    You said a couple of times to the girls that they made it an easy shoot, well no doubt you had a lot to do with that. Your charming and disarming style made it easy for all of us JP.
    Love the pic you chose for SNGC, but some of the others with the happy couple sitting in the tall grass were wonderful also. And the one with the blue sky as the backdrop just blew me away. Great stuff to memorialize a great day! Thank you thank you! (and yes I meant to say it twice).

  6. I don’t know where to begin! The day was perfect from start to finish… I love every single photo, especially the one of my dad walking her down the aisle and Lindsay and Chris with the blue sky. They are all amazing and we couldn’t have had a better photographer! Lindsay and Chris I am so happy for you both I can’t wait to see what photos you pick!!! AWESOME job JP!

  7. Congratulations Lindsay and Chris! It looks like it was a beautiful wedding and Lindsay looked absolutely stunning. These photos are perfection as always, JP!

  8. Congratulations Lindsay and Chris! You are one gorgeous couple, you make it look so easy!! These pictures are amazing (wouldn’t expect anything less from JP) I looove them all, but the photo booth one of the three sisters is awesome! Best wishes for your future together!

  9. Ok JP after being way behind I will start by commenting on your most recent post and somone I know! Lindsay you look beautiful, love your dress. Bridal Party- looking good as well. Kate and Erica – love the sister pic in the photo booth. JP nice shot of the entire family at the bottom of the stairs a really memorable one! I have to agree with you 100% on your favorite – it was absolutely mine too that will look nice in the studio~ I also really loved the ones of the bride and groom sitting in the tall grass great shots!! Everything look beautiful! Nice shots 🙂 Lindsay have fun downselecting for your Album!!

  10. All the ones in the backdrop of that golden field are awesome. My second favorite the one of them in front of the chirch with bridesmaid and groomsmen flanking them. There is something about the angle that animates Chris and Lindsay off the photo that makes a normally typical photo come to life. Thank you. Anthony/Tuxego

  11. I am in love with this blog!!!! Love the one of her coming down the stairs! And the ones in the field! Lindsey you looked so beautiful I loved your dress and everything! Stunning! Jp you really captured them perfectly! The Pictures are beautiful!!!!
