I first met Wei & Bena five years ago when photographing their wedding in Albany. They had the MOST memorable and unique wedding I have ever been privilege to photograph. It was a 16 hour marathon that included tea ceremonies, the best wedding meal I have ever eaten ( a homemade buffet of authentic Chinese food) lots of laughs, and a rocking reception. When I received a message from Bena a few months ago about photographing them and their plus one, son Nolan, I was ecstatic to see them again and reconnect. We had a great time playing in the park and working on getting Nolan to sit still just long enough for me to fire off a few frames before he got up and bolted. As I packed up my gear and said my goodbyes I was struck how amazing it was to come full circle with the Zeng’s and get to be a part of their expanding new family. First two photos are two of my favorites from their beautiful wedding!
Kerri & Brian traveled from Boston MA to celebrate their wedding day in Upstate NY at the Barn at Lord Howe Valley. It was perfect summer weather and they could not picked a better day. It was quite the opposite to their engagement session, six month prior in February, when the high of the day was a brisk 15 degrees. Congrats you two and I am sincerely grateful for having me capture your day!
When I first met with Regina & Jay in February, the site where their wedding was to be held looked completely different than it did for their summer wedding day. The lake frozen, the hard ground covered with snow, and all was quiet. Their wedding day was the exact opposite. The woods were alive, the lake was clear, and the trees, like their hearts, were full.
The wedding site, Trout Lake Club, is a property that has been in Jay's family for three generations. It is also their home, their history, and their future. Guests traveled from all over to watch them say their vows with the pristine waters of Trout Lake behind them.
I can't say enough good things about this couple. I wish you two nothing but the best. I am sure this is just the beginning of a long, marvelous, adventure.
