What a great wedding! We started off by shooting the "first look" at Saratoga Spa State Park. It was pretty cold but the snow was lightly falling making for a beautiful backdrop for some of the photos. After the first look and some formals shots, We headed to Mechanicville for the ceremony. It was at the beautiful weddings on the Hudson. This was my first time photographing a wedding at venue and the director, Nellie Ackerman, did an excellent job with the venue. After the ceremony, we headed to Longfellows in Saratoga Springs for the reception, where Karen and Paul, from Saratoga Sound DJ, kept the party going all night with music and great live performances. We really enjoyed our time with Kristina and Michael and I couldn't have asked for a better couple to kick off my 2015 wedding season. Thank you to my assistant Jim for all of his help on this wedding.
