Annie & Jonathan, January 7, 2017, Franklin Plaza
Hitlin Photography kicked off their 2017 wedding season with the beautiful wedding of Annie & Jonathan. It was a record cold day in the northeast and Annie was prepared with a gorgeous white fur lined coat. Annie is a fire-cracker to say the least, and we had so much fun meeting up with her and her girls getting ready. She makes anyone around her want to smile and is a quick-wit like ourselves; which I think is the reason why we love her so much. After Annie got in her dress, we took a couple shots outside before heading over to St. Pius X to meet up with Jonathan and his guys. We love shooting at St. Pius X. There is SO MUCH room and we can capture so many different angles an practically go unnoticed. A full Catholic ceremony was witnessed by around 185 guests. After Annie & Jon’s I Do’s, we got some quick photos of the two of them and their family and then hopped in our cars and headed to Troy. Once we arrived at Franklin Plaza, we proceeded right to the rooftop, and captured a gorgeous sunset. I have to say it was quite COLD on that roof, so we went inside and finished up portraits in Franklin’s AMAZING Penthouse Ballroom. This room is like no other when it comes to photographing. It is completely gorgeous and the series of images we took up there, are absolutely breathless. Guests headed downstairs to the reception where DJ Chris Hollister had practically every guest dancing the night away. What a spectacular day!
We had such a wonderful day spending it with you both, Annie and Jon. You are two of the most genuine people we know. Thanks for your laughs and gorgeous smiles all day through.
