Brrrrrrr!!!! Is all I can think of when looking back to last Saturday at Saratoga National. Holy moly, Madeline and Chris’ wedding was that first cold one of the season that just slaps ya in the head and knocks you off your feet! You’re probably saying “waaaah, JP, stop complaining.” and thats cool but seriously it was a chilly one. So what? We still smoked this one for Madeline and Chris!

So for the 12th (of 13) time this season we were at Saratoga National. Its amazing to shoot at this place through pretty much every season and work with the spring locations, summer weeds that photograph so nice into the fall colors and finally the barren winter state. I love mixing up the spots at this place! Anyway, they tied the knot in the tent which was beautifully decorated by Fleurtacious Designs because they just make things look pretty!! We’ve done 20 weddings with the amazing Fleurtacious Designs!! They just rock! Then it was party time! DJ Jeff Richards of Piano Man had his hands full because this party was off the chain! Wow, they partied, hard! This was also our 16th and final wedding of the year working with our good friend Al Woodard of Al Woodard Films We can’t thank you guys enough for having us on your wedding day team. We’re so honored to have been there! Thank you, thank you, thank you!! Congrats you two!!

  1. Love the first look with dad, and the look on Madeline's face when she hugs Chris after they are married. So sweet. Beautiful fleurs, beautiful bride, groom and bridal party. Wouldn't know it was freezing 🙂

  2. One of the bridesmaids was my best friend back in kindergarten in Poughkeepsie! Small world!

  3. Absolutely stunning! I'm biased, but SNGC is THE place to be married in the Capital Region and the Elario's are THE people to capture the wedding!
