Jen & Matt, August 17, 2018, Franklin Plaza
Jen and Matt are just one of those couples that photographers dream of photographing. Not only are they two good looking, very photogenic individuals, but they are some of the nicest and fun people we’ve had the pleasure of meeting. Prior to their wedding day, we have physically seen Jen and Matt attend multiple weddings as guests. The two were either living it up on the dance floor or in charge of watching little ones at previous weddings. Now it was their turn and their day did not disappoint. We started the day at the couple’s house where Matt and his guys finished getting dressed. The mood was chill and the guys toasted their friend before we headed over to the Best Western Franklin Square to meet up with Jen. Jen had an AMAZING, newly designed hotel suite to get ready in. After she was dressed, we did a first reveal with her dad and then bridesmaids. The couple had connections over at Siena College and were able to acquire the use of a private estate on property. This is where we did their First Look. The property had some neat architectural features and we worked quickly because it was a very hot, humid day. The couple were married in front of around 200 guests at St. Augustine’s Church in Troy. We then ended our day over at Franklin Plaza. Each time we are at Franklin we get some amazing shots up on their roof. It is the best place in Troy to capture some truly amazing skies. The reception was off the hook and guests danced their hearts out. Jen and Matt, we really feel we’ve become more friends than your photographers. You two are amazing people and we wish you all the best, truly! Thanks again!
