Kara & Michael’s Albany Country Club Wedding Voorheesville NY Wedding Photographers

Kara & Michael, May 15, 2021, Albany Country Club, Voorheesville, NY


Kara and Michael (Mike) were locked in to get married in May of 2020, but as we all know, Covid turned their plans around. They decided to postpone everything and moved a year out.  They still took advantage of their original day in 2020 by getting officially married with close family in attendance.  They decided to renew their vows in 2021 and have that huge party they missed out on in 2020.  So we’ve know these two for quite a while, as we’ve done both of Mike’s sister’s weddings and had met Kara at each one.  We had a strong connection with the Saburro family and knew that Kara was the perfect fit for the youngest sibling.  We eagerly awaited their big day.  It didn’t disappoint and we had such an amazing day with these two.  Kara had hair and makeup done off premises, and when we arrived we met up with Mike who finished getting dressed.  Kara arrived shortly after.  She got dressed with the help of her mom and maid of honor.  Both Kara’s dad and brother had a private first reveal with the Bride before she saw Mike outside.  These two have that kind of chemistry where taking photos is so easy.  The camera just loves them and you can see in these pictures why.  We had some fun moving about the property near the venue and the wedding party added to the fun with some great group shots as well.  Both families are absolutely wonderful and made Keith and I feel like we were part of the family the entire day.  The couple renewed their vows on the patio by their Brother-in-law and #hitlinalumni; Scott.  They then enjoyed cocktails and made a grand entrance into the ballroom, which included a dip.  After formalities, we went outside for some golf course pics and quickly captured some beginning color to the skies. We thought that was all we would get, and hoped for something more spectacular since both Mike’s sister’s weddings, we had captured amazing sunsets.  The dance floor opened and everyone had a blast dancing.  We took a gander outside, and low and behold an amazing sunset was brewing.  We quickly headed out to the driving range and captured probably one of our TOP 5 sunsets at Albany Country Club.  Venue coordinator and friend, Kim Aperance came out to bear witness that those colors were legit.  Such a great ending to the day and even better ending to capturing an entire family of siblings for their weddings.  That family will always hold a special place in our hearts.  Congrats again Kara and Mike.  You two are the best!

So the Best Man blew dust off his speech saying he’s held onto it since their first proposed wedding date, LOL.
