Tanya & Chuck’s State Room Wedding Photos

Gosh its good to shoot a wedding in Albany! I consider it our outdoor studio since we're Albany natives and our studio is just up the block. Tanya and Chuck may have had a wet day but mother nature cooperated when needed. It somehow always works out!

We set off the day at Hotel Albany in downtown where the bridal suite was jammed with bridesmaids, makeup and hairspray. Tayna was all set and ready to get into gown number one or as she called the “the picture dress”. Once dressed and we all headed downstairs and off to our photo location. Big thanks to Tom Nicchi of The State Room for stepping in and coordinating transportation and of course providing his amazing car too! This man does it all folks. Tom, do you sleep?? All was going great at our location then right around first look time it began to rain a bit, thankfully the building had some covering and it didn’t phase us whatsoever. By the time it was time for bride and groom portraits the rain stopped and we were able to do what we do.

Both their ceremony and reception was at The State Room which is one of the prettiest rooms in all of Albany. For the ceremony Tanya got into gown number two or as she called it “the ceremony dress”. After the ceremony we went back outside for some more fun photos. Again, downtown Albany is just a stunning backdrop. Once the room was flipped it was party time. Thanks to Hayden again for rocking out the Elario Photobooth!

Tanya and Chuck, thank you both for having us. I’m so glad we were the ones to capture your big day. We wish you many years of love and happiness. Keep smiling.
