Debbie & Chris, Albany Country Club, July 19, 2019
Ok, I’m going to come right off the bat and say it; this wedding had the BEST sunset we’ve ever had the pleasure of photographing. It couldn’t of happened for a more terrific couple than these two. Debbie and Chris were meant to be each other. We knew that from the moment we first sat down and talked with them for a wedding consult. They get all giddy around each other and compliment each other’s personalities perfectly. Their day went so smooth and we had a ton of fun with them. Debbie and her girls got ready in the bridal suite at Albany Country Club where Flawless by Tina worked her makeup magic. Chris and the guys arrived shortly after and we did some quick shots of them before Debbie got into her stunner of a wedding gown. This Pronovias gown was gorgeous and suited Debbie perfectly. The couple had a first look in the fireplace room since it was quite a hot and sticky day outdoors. We made quick use of the shade outside for photos before the couple got married on the terrace. Poppytree Floral created these two towering floral pieces that acted as a wedding arch for the couple and they were just breathtaking. The couple enjoyed cocktail hour and then everyone entered the reception ballroom. During salads, we kept our eye on the sky through the windows and saw a pretty sunset beginning to form. We pulled the couple for a few minutes and headed to the golf course. Well, as we took pictures, the sky started to light up with vibrant hues of red, orange, blue, and purple and this sunset was jaw dropping. We all cheered that we had the chance to capture it and the couple returned for lots of dancing and fun to tunes played by DJ Patrick Bergeron. Guests even got into our Smile Lounge Photo Booth for some photos. What a day; Debbie and Chris! We are so thrilled we got the chance to capture your Wedding and LOVE the fact that you both were willing to step outside for some sunset shots; totally worth it, right? Congrats again guys!
