Ok! It’s time for a wedding on this blog! August started out on the quiet side since we had the first weekend off but we set the month off right with Sarah and Al’s wedding. Myself and videographer Al Woodard showed up the hotel for the standard getting ready shots. The famous Alayne of Make Me Fabulous was in the house as well! Sarah looked incredible although I knew she would. Once that gown was on and Sarah was all laced up we bounced to Saratoga Springs and hung out in Congress Park. The weather could not have been better for these guys. It felt like a September day in all honesty which was great considering we all know how hot August can be. After we photographed the ladies the men showed up and it was time for Al and Sarah to get their first look on! Then we did our thang in the park, making some beautiful images. After that it was around the corner to the church so they could tie the knot. Meanwhile at Saratoga National my lovely wife Kris Ann of Fleurtacious Designs finished up the final touches to their ballroom. DJ Music Man Mike Garrasi was running the show from that point on which easily means a packed floor. As always this guy knows how to keep the party rocking. This was a wonderful wedding! We had a blast with Sarah and Al, you’re both such a fun and happy couple. Like Heavy D once said “I got nuttin’ but love for you baby”.

Peace,
JP

  1. Oh Sarah is a stunner all right. And she looks FABULOUS of course (PS Alayne so do you as always – you make it look so damn easy!). The dress and the veil are just perfect on her, and I just love her hair. Nice work on the hanger, btw. That’s on the list of “Things I learned from this blog… after my wedding” 😉
    Al, you and the boys are looking sharp! ANd I love the color on the ladies. Kris Ann – the flowers are such a soft soft pastel, and such a lovely complement to everyone. I like that one that looks like a nearly taupe rose. Awesome.
    Back to the shots.
    I’m a big fan of first look shots. Always. 🙂
    The group shot right after the first look has a lot of heart. Look at the look on her face! Pure contentment.
    Sarah and her dad on deck – always a face – also the “Mr. and Mrs.” is always such a perfect show of emotion and excitement in those first few seconds of being married. Always look forward to that, and Sarah’s face is like “can you believe it? I’m married!!!” and al is like “Yea that’s right!!!”

    Onto the colors in the field – that light is a gift – just shining on top of Al’s head, between them dancing, just flirting with the camera. I really love the warmth, and you can see they’re kind of playful together. Couldn’t wipe the smile off her face if you tried, huh? Just how every bride should be. COngrats guys!!!

    JP – nice shot at the end! 🙂 Big Joe – where’s your cameo?
