Rich and Kelly are ENGAGED! Jamaica, here I come!!!!

I love my clients!  I love my clients even more when I’ve known them for a very long time.  And, I love them EVEN MORE when they trust me enough to take me with them to their destination wedding!  I was so excited to find out that my friend Kelly was engaged.  When she posted on Facebook that she was getting married, I jokingly sent her a message that I knew a great photographer….. well, the rest is history!

We headed down to Washington Park in Albany to capture their engagement excitement!!!

One of my favorite weddings from last year…. Second shooting with Amy – Kristine and Joel

Really, this was one of my favorite weddings.  First, I love the Appel Inn.  Second, I love shooting with Amy.  Third, Joel and Kristine were awesome to work with.  Of course, I was second shooting so I started my day with the guys.  But, I did get to shoot some formals and details, my faves!  There were details everywhere!  I loved the linens, I loved that the family made the cupcakes, I loved their signature drink (no, I didn’t have any!), and the love that surrounded these two was just awesome.  So, here ya go!  You tell me what you think!!!

Joel waiting for his bride – first look!  Love it!

 

Here she comes!

Second shooting with Michelle Lange – Marty and Jackie

I am so fortunate to work with so many wonderful photographers from near and far.  Michelle Lange is a photographer from NYC, and also a Showiteer, like me.  What’s a Showiteer you ask?  Well, we are a very fun group of photographers who, for lack of better words, ROCK!  LOL!  I’ll do another post on Showit/PASS very soon.  Anyway, Michelle posted that she was looking for a second shooter for a wedding upstate, more upstate than me.  So, I said I was available and she picked me to help her out.  YIPPEE!!!!  So the day came for Marty and Jackie’s wedding and I drove up to Johnstown and met with the guys.  Photographed them getting ready, some headshots, details, and then off to the church we went to capture Jackie and Marty’s first look and then, the ceremony!  As typical with most second shooter gigs, I leave after the formal shots are done so you won’t get to see the reception details on my blog.  I’ll see if I can find Michelle’s link to those. 🙂  Marty and Jackie are adorable, and so in love, just warning you!

Besides cufflinks being an issue, the guys couldn’t figure out the whole black socks thing…… It was VERY entertaining!

Second Shooting – Guys and Details

As you know, I second shoot for Amy, quite a lot, and, I LOVE IT!  But when people hear that I “second shoot” they mostly just shake their heads and say “oh, that’s cool”.  Most of the time, I am sure they have no idea what that means.  Well, lucky for you all, I’m going to share with you what that means.  Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE, LOVE , LOVE being the lead photographer and shooting solo but the pressure is totally different when shooting for another photographer. The deal when working with Amy is that I hang with the groom and his guys, and photograph them getting ready.  No, no, no, I do NOT watch and stare as they get dressed.  I’m there to capture the fun, anxiety, jokes, the best man trying to chill the groom out, you know, the fun stuff.  Cuff links, shot glasses, shoes, head shots, group photos, ties, and nervous smiles.  Here are a few examples…

The other part of second shooting is photographing the details.  I have to admit, this is my favorite part of the job.  Flowers, rings, jewelry, church decor, reception details such as glassware, cakes, favors, place cards, and did I mention flowers???  Usually while Amy is photographing some of the formal shots, I run (and yes, most of the time I RUN!) to the church or ceremony spot and then the reception area to shoot those details.  It is mostly me, myself, and I, alone with the details, in the calm before the party, and I just soak it all in.

And, from time to time, I do get to shoot some of the formal shots and hang out with the ladies.

No matter what I get to photograph as a second shooter, I learn a ton, every. single. time.  And, every opportunity I have to work with other photographers, those experiences make me a better lead photographer, which I LOVE!  I really do have the best job ever, well, jobs!  🙂

My gig as a second shooter Part 1 of MANY! Lloyd and Fawn are MARRIED!

I have this great gig as a second shooter.  Of course, with Amy aka best boss ever!!!  I get to go to all of these amazing weddings and take pictures without the pressure of being the lead gal.  It is GREAT!

One of my weddings in 2012 was for Lloyd and Fawn.  They are the cutest couple!!!  Fawn was really going for a vintage look and she totally nailed it.  The wedding was just stunning at Proctor’s Key Hall and a dream of a place to take pictures!  As a second shooter, Amy goes with the gals as they get ready and I get to go with the guys.  So, you will see many more pics of the gents in my sessions but not because I favor them, that’s the job.  But, all of the grooms I have worked with have been so much fun and I laughed A LOT, especially with Lloyd and his guys.  Here ya’ll go – some fun pics from our day!

Personalized cuff links from his lady :)

DeAnne and Basia, June 2012

Basia and DeAnne, what can I say about these two?  They are beautiful together, for one.  They love to laugh, they are creative, and they are a loving mom and step-mom to two cutie patooties!!!!  It was such an honor to photograph their marriage and the love they have for each other.  A nice small ceremony at their home with their closest friends and family is all they needed to bring their lives together.  It was perfect!

Thank you so much for including me in your amazing day!
