Ariana and Bill had a beautiful Autumn wedding at the Orchard Creek Golf Course in Altamont, NY. About a year ago, Keith met up with the couple at Thatcher’s Park for their Engagement Session; also in the fall. We love that we were able to capture so many elements of the season in both of groupings of images that we created for them.
Ariana has got to be one of “THE MOST ORGANIZED” Brides we have ever had. When we arrived at the Bride Prep location, she had everything ready for us. We loved it cause we got right to work and she had time to relax, sip a little mimosa and chill with her girls. This bunch of girls were such a blast to work with. Funny enough, two of them were named Beth, so every time we called out “Beth,” they both would respond. We joked on and off and it ended up where Megs even became an “honorary Beth” for the day ;)!
We all headed over to Orchard Creek, where Ariana went into hiding and we met up with Bill and the guys. Such a mellow group; you’d never know they were all wearing really cool camouflage socks. YUP, we HAD to get a picture of those. The ceremony was outdoors and it was a very bright and sunny day. We made good use of shadows throughout the location and are in LOVE with all of Orchard Creek’s Apple trees. We spent some time with the couple out on the golf course and then headed into their all-season ballroom where coordinator Joell and her fabulous staff from Orchard Creek served up a beautiful reception. We had so much fun working with DJ LaBoom-Claude Sawyer as well.
Ariana and Bill, we had such a wonderful day with you two. Thanks again for choosing Keith Hitlin Photography as your wedding photogs! We wish you two many blessings!
Remember their E-Session (click on the picture to see their blog)
Absolutely gorgeous, Ariana
Check out the cool socks the guys wore
YEAH SURE, go ahead and throw apples at Keith (made for an awesome photo though, don’t ya think?)
HA, HA! These two were willing to do anything! (Great shot, Meg)
Reception. Totally in love with that apple ring shot!
Beautiful first dance with all those shadows
Can’t forget the night portraits
And..the Dynamic Duo. Don’t think that just because there is a pic of my putting on boutineers, I’m a pro (Meg). Caption top right, Keith: Yeah guys I really can’t remember how to get back to the reception. Caption bottom left, Keith: Meg, GET OUT OF THE WAY, Meg: DOH!, and of course the last one is typical Keith photo bomb
