Better late than never right?!!  This past November I had the honor of photographing Katie and Rip's Wedding.  This one was truly special as I met both Katie and Rip when they moved in right 
next door to me the summer before.  Katie and I clicked from the very beginning and we became fast friends.  We both have dogs that we consider our babies and her pups became two
more loves of my life!  We have been able to really get to know each other living so close so when Katie and Rip asked me to document their wedding day I was beyond thrilled!!
I couldn't wait to capture the love between these two.  We started the day down the street from our house at Katie's moms.  She has a gorgeous home on the river here in Waterford
and it made for a fantastic backdrop for our getting ready photos!  Katie of course looked stunning as she got ready that morning and was so relaxed and calm.  


We met up at Bush Memorial in Troy to document their first look and it went off seemingly! It was such a great moment between Katie and Rip and I caught myself tearing up while in
the middle of shooting (the only drawback to being a hopeless romantic AND photographing special moments of people I love so dearly!)  I quickly got it together so we could jump into
their portraits and then bring in the wedding party.  What a blast they all were!  We had a lot of people and a lot of family and everyone was so cooperative and so fun that before I knew
it, it was time to head over to the church.  Katie and Rip's ceremony was at St. Mary's in Waterford, NY.  The ceremony was so beautiful and I was so thrilled to be a part of it.  Afterwards it
was time for the reception at the Canfield Casino up in Saratoga, NY.  We had a great time capturing all the fun moments on the dance floor but my favorite was the night portraits we
took of Katie and Rip inside the Canfield Casino!  It was an incredible day from start to finish!
