Chelsea and John’s Wedding

Chelsea and John are married! It was an unseasonably warm december day when Chelsea and John tied the knot. It was beautiful, detail oriented wedding with a fantastic couple who were a joy to work with. The wedding was also a bit of a tour of Utica, Chelsea’s preparation took place at the Radisson then they went to  St. Joseph & St. Patrick Church to have their ceremony finally we ran around town stopping at the Stanley and the Utica Train Station for pictures and finally we headed back to the Radisson for a music and dance filled reception. Chelsea and John also went outside the reception to do some pictures with the city lights I’d like to say a special thank you to the UPD for keeping us from getting hit by any cars. Please take a look below at the wedding pictures.

Tiffany and Jeremy are married!

12-13-14 the date has come and passed and on that winter day Tiffany and Jeremy’s wedding took place. The wedding, which took place at St Anthony’s in Utica New York and finished in Rome, New York at the Beeches was a beautiful and detailed event with all the hallmarks a winter wedding could ask for, snow but not a blizzard, cold but not bitter cold, and early sunset but enough daylight to get everyone to the reception. The reception was really nice it had a very seasonal decor, christmas and snowflakes abounded. All and all a great wedding that I was happy to document for the new Bride and Groom. Congratulations to Jeremy and Tiffany and good luck!

Portraits for the The Mohawk Valley Resource Center for Refugees

Through August and September I was lucky enough to work with the The Mohawk Valley Resource Center for Refugees in Utica, NY on a series of portraits featuring some amazing people. Everyone I photographed would be featured as success stories on the new MVCRCR website. It was an amazing experience working all of these individuals and trying to make images that go along with their stories both where they have been and where they are going. Some of my favorites are below and more can be found on the MVRCR website. Thank you to Jenjira, Trinh, Thein and Sagar for working with me and thank you Shana for giving me this opportunity.

I love doing this type of work which is why I’m really excited for tomorrow’s Help Portrait event where we provide pictures and prints to anyone who comes down to the Mohawk Valley Resource Center for Refugee. You can find out more information about help-portrait here:

Natalie and Christopher are Married!

Adam – Natalie and Chris are married and are also perhaps the most adorable married couple I had the privilege of working with this year. What makes them so adorable is that when left to their own devices they never stopped joking around, smiling and making each other laugh it made everyone around them happier for being in their presence and made my job that much easier. Their wedding party also had them in stitches as we played around on the side of a pond. I think every wedding teaches me some things about love and the nature of marriage but this wedding or rather Chris taught me about also about the interference that LED lights can cause with PA systems. Natalie and Chris were married at St Peters in Utica NY and had their reception at the Roselawn in New York Mills. Good luck to the two newly weds!

 

Jesi – A wedding is a union that symbolizes the passionate, unconditional love that two people have for each other and illustrates the promise made to spend the rest of their days together as husband and wife. This is a promise to grow old together, but Natalie and Christopher aren’t just a couple to grow old together; they’ve grown up together. Natalie and Christopher were “high school sweethearts” that had been together for seven and a half years on the day of their wedding, and I don’t think any two people could be more thrilled to be tying the knot! The whole day was filled with the memorable moments of a beautiful ceremony, followed by a nice autumn cruise in Christopher’s SMART Car (After we fit Natalie’s dress into it, of course!), and ended with wonderful night where the couple was surrounded by their loved ones, who were also incredibly thrilled to be a part of this special day! Congratulations Christopher and Natalie! Here’s to continuing you’re beautiful lives together!
