Ok are you blog stalkers ready for a new post? Like a brand new wedding no one has seen yet? Yeah I know you are. So today we’re setting off the 2011 wedding season with Pam & Adam. These two tied the knot on January 15th which in my opinion was a quintessential day for a winter wedding. On our way up to Saratoga we both commented on how perfect the snowflakes were and how we hoped it continued to snow so we could get these two outside. We knew if the snow continued we’d have some killer images to share. After Pam finished up with her team from Make Me Fabulous we began shooting. After that it was off to Saratoga National for the first of 10 weddings there this season. (btw we did 10 there last year too but who’s counting?) I arranged for the first look to be outside with the snow flakes falling. It was beautiful and romantic too. After some group shots we headed back outside to shoot a little bit more. Their ceremony was so awesome. Why? Well because Adams father officiated it. I thought that was pretty darn cool. The party was now in DJ Paul Malo’s hands and the rest is history. Pam and Adam, it was an honor opening up the 2011 season with you guys! I know you’re somewhere a lot warmer right now so enjoy every minute. Thanks for the good times.


Extra points for fun hangers.

Some Fleurtacious Designs for you. The feathers were awesome.

Pam was one of the most happiest brides.. always smiling.

Did I mention she’s totally photogenic and looked incredible too?

I love when the bridesmaids all have their own style dress. It’s great right?

The fellas..

First look time..

How fun?

A little umbrella ella ella ay.. Did I mention I love everything about this image?

This one I like too..

Another fav of mine.

We used the foyer for the group photos.. It has the best available light in this whole building.

Ok with a little begging and pleading I got them to loose the umbrella, wrap and head back out.. I’m glad I pushed for this because I love love love this series.

I’ve never seen snow like this at a wedding.. It was a gift!

They were laughing because I was screaming with excitement.

Loving some b&w..

Just loving these..

Ahh the old facebook teaser.. Come friend me on my facebook and see the teaser first!

Since they had Saratoga National to themselves they had the ceremony downstairs.

and a proud father walks his girl down the aisle.

This image I love.. The two fathers. If you didn’t read my recap above Adam’s father officiated the ceremony.

These are my favorite moments during a ceremony.

  11. I love the b&w of the bride and groom kissing under the umbrella in the snow. I want to hang that photo in my house and it’s not like I’m in it, or even know them! The last photo is really sweet and romantic too. Good job making them go out in the snow, JP!
