To say that Saturday October 8th was one of the nicest days of the year would be an understatement!! Tammy and Ryan really had a beautiful day! We arrived up in Saratoga Springs to a home full of bridesmaids in blue dresses and the ladies from Make Me Fabulous. Once our bride Tammy was dressed we headed outdoors for some of that October goodness! Their dresses against the foliage was just perfect. Talk about color! Not to mention the super duper photogenic Tammy! She was killing it out there. After we wrapped up it was off to my all time favorite church in Saratoga Springs. The Bethesda Episcopal Church is one of the coolest churches in Saratoga Springs. I wish we shot their more often! After their ceremony we had some time to kill before cocktail hour at Saratoga National Golf Club began so we headed to Congress Park! Then once the party started, it didn’t stop. You can thank the Audio Stars for that! These people partied all damn night! Tammy and Ryan, thank you so much for choosing us! We had a blast with you, your families and friends! Such a fun day! Now enjoy the blog while you pack for your honeymoon!


Something blue?

Welcome to Saratoga National.. we love Shannon!

Ryan wanted to recreate the famous lunchtime atop a skyscraper shot in NY from 1932 by Charels Ebbets.

We had to get some standard Saratoga National images!!

The color was off the hook!!!

If you can have your cocktail hour downstairs at SGNC do it.. its awesome! Obviously don’t even ask if its track season!!

First dance..

A nice toast..

I’ll end with this outdoor image of what a beautiful day 10.08.11 was!

  1. They are LulaKate dresses. They are really kind of fun because you pick out what type of “skirt” you want (ie full, pencil, a-line) and then you pick from the different “tops” and they make it into a one piece dress…so you really design what you want in a way.

  2. These pictures came out gorgeous!!! I love the fact that they tell a story … so much more than the typical shots you see! It was such a fantastic day and you really showcase that! Well done!

  3. Amazing pictures! I can’t believe how many great shots you got since it felt like I never saw you. They are all so beautiful. One of my favs is Wild Bill yawning in the church especially since it gives us a little more leverage on getting that pool!

  4. o.m.g. wonderful!! love the shots of the shoes and the cross necklace and the rings… love the bouquets…and you’re right, the blue dresses with the backgrounds were gorgeous… LOVE the emotion in the shot of Ryan seeing Tammy come down the aisle (and def his mom as well-awesome)..the duck could be your mascot, yanno, lol. Congrats to Tammy and Ryan! and i definitely love the church…wow. beautiful images of a beautiful wedding, JP! 🙂

  5. My new favorite place to get ready! The former Moons Lake House has been converted into a home for rent! 700 Crescent Ave. in Saratoga. Thanks Tammy to your parents for finding it. I wish I could have stayed with you all morning over looking the lake!!

  6. JP first and foremost – happy birthday. I’m going to say it, you should not be blogging on your birthday!!! I know, dedication, but you deserve a day (and then some). Hope it’s great 🙂

    Onto the blog. Mona loves fall weddings. Mona occasionally also likes to speak in third person. Seriously though, I start to see the colors popping through. I cannot WAIT to see the ones you will capture next weekend, around peak time! This is amazing, seems like you can feel the Indian summer light shining right through these pics.
    What I love – the simple details, the blue shoes, blue coordinating dresses – I LOVE they have their own bouquets. That’s right brides, mix it up! Don’t be afraid to experiment. 🙂
    The pic where you said “A lot of MA accents here” I swear I could almost hear them as I read that.

    The church is awesome, the lines and details are incredible, and by far the best pic there is Ryan awaiting his lovely Tammy, with his mom clearly moved. Weddings, emotions, love it.
    Tammy I have to say, you are quite photogenic, and why wouldn’t you be when looking so FABULOUS! 🙂 I do love this. Congratulations to you both!!!! 🙂

    Big Joe and JP – love the fall blogs. 🙂

  7. These are the most stunning pictures I have seen…They reflect the day perfectly! They are so unique! Well done everyone! I think I’ll get married now…. 🙂

  8. great couple , w/great families & friends – in a great town . . . ” winners again” in Saratoga Springs .
    Big Thanks to Tammy & Ryan for going with “Elario Photography, Inc.” .
    BTW . . The Bethesda Episcopal Church w/good reverend Parks is always a home run . . ..

  9. Oh what can I say JP? You are a rock star and actually managed to make me look fab in photos (I promise it rarely happens!) So honored to have been a part of such an incredible wedding and loved to party all night, we kept that place rocking. Shout out to the Audio Stars, from a fellow singer you guys are the bomb 🙂 And Uncle Billy will never live down that yawn as long as i am alive, i can smell the chlorine from the pool already. Ryan’s face really does say it all, a stunning bride for sure. Color is off the hook in these pics, glad to be a hit bouquet. Thank you from a dedicated blog stalker, even if i never got my pin!

  10. LOVE LOVE LOVE all of these pictures! Such an amzing job! I love how you got Wild Bill yawning one of my favs may have to order that one! Love the facebook teaser one it is so Tammy and Ryan!

  11. All these shots are so gorgeous I feel like I’m looking at a brides magazine. It was a great wedding and these photos are proof of that!!!

  12. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the picture of Ryan and Tammy where Tammy is behind him hugging him. Tammy you looking stunning!! The shot of Billy is PRICELESS. These pictures came out phenomenal! The nighttime landscape shot where the pool is glistening and the sky is an amazing blue is absolutely breaktaking!!

  13. Wow, truly spectacular photographs. All the right moments captured at the perfect times! I love the colors. My favorite photo is of Tammy’s blue shoes along side Ryan’s blue socks and tie! So fun!! The black and white of there first dance is also priceless. Such amazing job on an even more amazing wedding!!!

  14. Yaaay!! I love all of them so so much. Both Ryan and I were so thrilled with the way our whole weekend went, this is icing on the cake! No to mention I can’t wait to make fun of my Dad – that photo for sure will get my MOH and I get our contracted pool! Busted!

  15. Beautiful!!! It’s hard for me to not love a fall wedding!! I just love all the colors – the fall leaves, the light, the blue/orange… And the Elarios always capture a fall wedding the best!! Even the “standard” saratoga national image is so far from just being standard!! And the one in the field – always love those! Tammy looks stunning (and fabulous!) and I love her blue shoes! That moment you captured of the groom’s and his mother’s face – beautiful and priceless!! And the one you captured of her dad (i think?) yawning… too funny! 🙂 Great job Jp and Big Joe!! And Jp -thanks for posting a blog on your birthday! Now listen to your dad and take the rest of the day off!!

  16. Beautiful!!! I love all the colors in this blog – the fall leaves, the light, the blue/orange… I love the color of the leaves in the “standard” saratoga national image!!
