Haleigh & Zachary’s Key Hall at Proctors Wedding Schenectady NY Wedding Photographers

Haleigh & Zachary, October 15, 2022, Key Hall at Proctors, Schenectady, NY


We hit up Schenectady for Haleigh and Zachary’s Wedding Day back in October.  Haleigh and her girls got ready at the Hampton Inn and as we walked in, Haleigh was finishing getting her makeup done.  Her bridesmaids put together a scrap book of memories and pics and she had some fun looking through that and then she opened a gift from the Groom.  Her mom and sister helped her into he gown and let me tell you; Haleigh is a stunner!  She looked beautiful.  We moved over to the Mohawk Harbor area, where Zach and his guys finished getting dressed in the hotel.  He also opened a gift from the Bride and had a toast with the guys.  Haleigh requested a very unique first look.  Not only with the groom but also a few first reveals before with the special men of her life.  She planned on the Mohawk Harbor Ampitheater so each would be on different levels.  We set it up and she began the downhill journey.  It was actually pretty neat seeing all of their own reactions.  After the couple saw each other we moved to the dock and then around the Harbor for shots.  The wind was pretty strong this day and we had to keep an eye on her veil so it wouldn’t end up in the water; lol.  We then all drove over to the venue and went across the street to Jay St. for family portraits and some quick alley shots of the couple.  They were married inside Key Hall and then headed to cocktail hour.  As the ballroom was being transformed, we got some street shots and marquis shots with the couple as well.  The Reception was cast in a pretty violet light and the couple entered from the bank vault.  Everyone had an amazing time and they had a wedding painter who captured a shot during the ceremony who finished the painting by the end of the night.  It was such a fun day.  Thanks for braving the wind with us Haleigh and Zach.  You two are meant to be and we loved spending your day with you.  Congrats again.
