We began our relationship with Marissa and Steve back in January or 2013 when she inquired about doing an Engagement Session. Her and fiance at the time, Steve, were not sure if they wanted a big wedding and just really wanted the pics of the two of them for the time being. We met up with them for that Session in Spring of 2013, having to do a different location then their proposed Lake George original plan due to weather. To make a long story, short, it worked out because we did the session in their hometown in Columbia County and then a few months later, got called again to capture a small intimate wedding at the private residence in Lake George. We ended up getting the best of both worlds and seasons.
Marissa and Steve were married on a December day when a HUGE storm was expected to reach the capital region. The family owns a beautiful residence right on Lake George and the decor was truly “Adirondack.” Being a very intimate gathering, Marissa did not skimp on details. From their unique chocolate and gourmet popcorn bar, to the little mason jars filled with hot cocoa mix, everything was so well thought-out. Just Keith headed up for this one and captured the ceremony and some candids of the gathering. He was able to get so many great portraits of the couple because of the flexible time of everything. Near the end of the portrait time, the snow started to fly and some very beautiful images were captured.
We wish you both a wonderful marriage, Marissa and Steve! Thanks for giving us the opportunity to capture this amazing time in your lives.
