Kristen & Dave, August 4, 2019, Old Daley on Crooked Lake
Meghan grew up with Kristen and her siblings down in Columbia County, NY as kids. What a surprise when adult Kristen, contacted us to inquire about Wedding Photography. It was a no brainer as this is one fun family. Kristen and Dave hit it off immediately with Keith as well and had a bunch of fun with him and their dogs for the engagement session. Kristen and Dave had a gorgeous weather day in August for their wedding. Everything took place at Old Daley on Crooked Lake. Kristen was finishing up makeup when we arrived and Dave and his son were getting dressed in the Groom’s suite. Both the Groom’s daughter and son were on hand to help the Bride and Groom get ready. Kristen got into her dress with the help of the ladies of the family and then had a first reveal with her dad. The couple then had their First Look outdoors. These two like to joke around and really made our job fun photographing them. The wedding party arrived dressed for their photos and then family came next. The couple were married lakeside by a ceremony officiated by the Bride’s brother. Kristen not only made vows to her Groom, but also vows to his 2 children who stood beside their dad. Everyone was ready to party come Reception time and one of their main goals was to have a non-stop dance party. DJ Tony Mancuso brought that goal to life. During golden hour, the couple approached us with an idea. They had a guest at the wedding who rode his motorcycle and wanted pics with it. We got approval from Old Daley and parked that baby on their pedestrian bridge. These are some of our most favorite images of the day. Thanks again Kristen and Dave for trusting us and what an honor it was to capture your special day. Congrats again guys!!

Groom Prep. Love this shot of Groom and son
The Bride loves her Converse
Bride with her mom, sister and now daughter
First Reveal with Father of the Bride
These two were excited to finally get to see each other
I have to say, those purple Cons really made the outfit
We love how these 2 make each other laugh
One of our favorite shots of the day. This kid and his facial expressions!
AH, Golden Hour portraits are so much more fun with a motorcycle
Oh and we go the last parts of sunset as well
So this is how the cake eating went down. Kristen smooshed it in Dave’s face. I think he was looking for revenge.
