It’s been a while since we’ve shot a wedding at Glen Sanders Mansion but it was sure nice to be back. The Mansion is one of those venues that just feels like home to me. Anyway we happen to have another GSM wedding in later this month so stay tuned for that blog post too!

We set the day off in the bridal suite which was fairly calm in my opinion. Perhaps that was because we all had a very long day ahead of us? The wedding ceremony was slated for 1:30pm at St John The Evangelist Church but the cocktail hour (and a half) didn’t begin until 6pm. So it was a 12 hour day for us! But it was super fun and actually flew by. You know that saying “time flies when you’re having fun”? Well, its true because it did! Anyway Saturday was one of those iffy weather days. It rained from the time we showed up to the church just until the receiving line was done. Again, Mother Nature hooked us up when needed! So we shot down in the stockade section of Schenectady and had a blast. Then it was back to the Mansion where a stunning ballroom was waiting to be photographed. Fleurtacious Design did it again, because thats what they do! Also, speaking of “killin’ it” who better than the New York Players to have tear it up all night? The party was off the hook and people danced all night! I had fun on this one for sure. Thanks so much to Megan and Egor! You’re such a cute couple and I wish you all kinds of love, health and happiness forever! Thanks for choosing us to document this day!!

Peace,
JP

The bridal party… So we had this shot setup in another spot then the sun came out and totally jacked it up. Reluctantly I had to ask 18 people to move but thats the kinda photographers we are. I couldn’t have shot in that other spot in full sun and went to bed feeling good about myself that night.. Thanks to you all for understanding!

This is one of my absolute favorites.. I love this wall.

You show em how that Elario configuration is done!

So sweet.

I’m loving this trend of the groom matching the brides fun colored shoes with their socks!

  1. Another Elario/Commisso collaboration. They aregreat couple with really nice families. On this one though I got to see the E-men work. I was called in to help the wedding party and since it is my home parish (where my wife and I were married) I hung out. That reminds me where are the photos of me?? :o) Big Joe n me, etc. I’d love to get them when you can.

  2. Cute!!! I too love the shoes-matching-the-groom’s-socks trend. Adorable.
    Gotta ask – the shot of the ceiling of the church – what lens do you use for that?
    Ok. Love those shots, the getting ready shots of course. Dad’s first look. GSM dock… and their entrance. Adorable! But I really do love those GSM dock shots with that glinting golden light. Nice stuff right here

  3. Love the shot of the bride and groom’s socks and shoes! Really cute and love the pop of color

  4. in love with the pic of them walking out of the church with the bubbles.. and in love with the “Almost KIss” pic! so cute

  5. NIce people, nice blog, nice job, love my church and love your shot. Once again the colored socks to match the brides shoes is a big hit.
