Christine and Geoff’s JFP review

Posted in Jeff Foley Photography, Weddings on September 2nd, 2014 by admin

Thank you to Christine and Geoff for the sweet WeddingWire review:

“From the first moment I met with Jeff the first time, I knew working with him would be the right choice. Not only are the pictures works for art, but Jeff goes above and beyond for his clients. From day one, I never felt like just a client but also a friend, and Jeff was always available and helpful if I had a question only mildly related to our wedding photography. He is incredibly fun to work with and made the day as relaxing as it could have been. I am a worrier, but I felt so comfortable throughout my wedding day, and far more relaxed than I otherwise would have been, and I owe a lot of that to Jeff’s dedication and ability to make me laugh throughout the day. Meeting with him the last time, to view our pictures, has to be one of my favorite moments of the entire wedding experience. I cried over some of the meaningful moments, but I laughed, a lot, at the great shots Jeff captured. Photography is the one way you can truly have the memories from your wedding day — all those moments you missed while caught up in the day itself — and I could not think of a better person to have captured those memories for us.”

Thank you, Christine and Geoff, for sharing your wedding day with me. I appreciate it, and I look forward to making more pictures of you guys in the years to come. And I’m so glad you enjoyed coming to the studio to experience your wedding day on the big screen — it’s one of my favorite parts of what I do, too.

We had a little bit of time to kill before the ceremony, so I made some candid photos:

And then it was time for Elise and Chris to get married!:

In the blink of an eye, it was time for the wedding reception:

What a wonderful day (August 2, 2014) with Marisa and Billy! I’d been looking forward to this one ever since their engagement session, and it was everything I hoped it would be — sweet, romantic and fun. Thanks for sharing such a great day with JFP, guys. (And it was great to see so many JFP couples. Counting Marisa and Billy, there were four of my couples in attendance. That was awesome!) With Mazzone Hospitality, The Petal Pusher, Al Woodard FILMS (Al Woodard), Saratoga Hall of SpringsErin MarzilliNuance, A boutique salonMetro Music (Patrick Bergeron) and JFP associate Alan.

How cute is this wedding day text exchange between Billy and Marisa?:

Marisa makes some great, expressive faces:

Billy’s dad fit in with the guys just perfectly:

The ceremony took place at St. Mary’s Church in Waterford. There were definitely some laughs before the serious part of the day began:

The mood changed as Marisa prepared to walk down the aisle:

Billy was so excited to see his bride!:

We headed to downtown Saratoga for some bridal party portraits:

And then we hit up Saratoga State Park for portraits of the newlyweds:

Finally, it was time to party!:

Thank you for choosing JFP to document your wedding day, guys! I wish you a lifetime of happiness together!

A teaser from today’s family portrait session

Posted in Jeff Foley Photography, Portraits on August 25th, 2014 by admin

Each year, I travel up to Bolton Landing to make portraits of Danielle and Michael (and their children). It has been so nice to see their family grow, and to get to know them a little bit. Can’t wait till the next time I get these guys in front of my camera.

Congrats to Megan and Josh!

Megan and Josh became Mr. and Mrs. Brown (hence the “BROWN’ in this photo) on August 9th, 2014. Congrats, guys! With with Pat’s Barn at Rensselaer Technology ParkIntuition Events by Michelle DischiavoGrand Central StationFlowers By PeshaStrut. SpalontiqueJean Paul Spa and SalonsSomething Bleu Bridal and JFP associate Alan.

Megan got ready at the Hilton Garden Inn (Troy, New York). I love this photo of the bride and her mom as the dress goes on:

And the back of the dress was gorgeous!

Megan got Josh a weed whacker as wedding day gift (he was super excited about it) and she posed with it before it was delivered:

Josh and the guys also got ready the Hilton Garden Inn. Since most of the the guys played football together in high school (at LaSalle Insitute), there was a football floating around:

And there was a groomsman with a wicked hangover from the night before:

Josh and his brother Kyle laughed together all day:

Since, as I mentioned, most of the guys played football together at LaSalle, we stopped by the high school’s football field on our way to Pat’s Barn for the ceremony:

And then it was time for Megan and Josh to get married!:

I love that you can see a tear on Megan’s cheek in this next image:

We jumped right into portrait work after the ceremony:

I’m crazy about this next photo:

Finally, it was time to party!:

Here’s Megan and her sister being silly with their dad:

Thank you, Megan and Josh, for sharing your wedding day with me. I wish you a lifetime of happiness together!:

Congratulations to Christine and Geoff, who got married on July 25, 2014 at Key Hall at Proctors. It was a beautiful day, and I had a blast with the couple and their friends and family. Such sweet people. It also was great to work with Mazzone HospitalityPiano Man’s DJ Productions, and ECCO SALON. And thanks to Kristen Renee Photography for second shooting with me.

I started the day with Christine at the Parker Inn (Schenectady, N.Y.).

I love this photo of Christine and her mom sharing a moment while Christine’s sister adjusts her dress:

And here’s Christine and her dad:

Sometimes brides experience a little pain when their veil goes in:

It’s always worth it, though:

Who doesn’t love a cute flower girl?:

Geoff also got ready at the Parker Inn:

We then headed over to Jay Street (and the surrounding area) for some portrait work:

We also were fortunate enough to be able to sneak inside Proctor’s Theatre for a few portraits:

We had a few laughs with the veil, as well:

It was then time for the ceremony, which took place inside Key Hall:

And then, in the blink of an eye, it was time for the newlyweds to party!:

Thank you, Christine and Geoff, for choosing JFP. I wish you a lifetime of happiness together!

Marisa and Billy’s JFP review

Posted in Jeff Foley Photography, Weddings on August 20th, 2014 by admin

Marisa and Billy gave JFP a wonderful review on WeddingWire. I think that’s worth another teaser image, don’t you? LOL.Here’s what the newlyweds had to say:

“We have been thinking about writing this review since our wedding day! We do not have anything but positive things to say about Jeff Foley, his team and his work! Jeff was the only photographer we met with because after our meeting we knew we wanted him to be a part of our wedding day. Jeff was friendly, funny and professional from start to finish and was always willing to listen to our ideas- even the bad ones. Jeff was also very organized and responsive – something that helped us to feel calm through the wedding planning process. On our wedding day, Jeff brought a calming but fun vibe to the group even when things were not going perfect – we were able to laugh and have a great time all day. We love the teaser pictures Jeff posted immediately after our wedding and have received a ton of compliments on them. We are looking forward to meeting with Jeff next week to view the rest of our wedding pictures! We would (and have) recommend Jeff to any couple looking for a photographer- simply put, he’s awesome!”

Thank you so much, Marisa and Billy, for sharing your wedding day with me. I cannot wait to show all your photos to you. They are beautiful (if I do say so myself!)!
