Congrats to Meaghan and John! They got married on Saturday at Riverstone Manor. It was a beautiful day, and I got to work with Lipstick N Lashes Beauty Bar and Boutique, Experience and Creative Design, Ltd., Lovecraft Productions, Angela’s Bridal and Events by Cool Cat. Thanks to Krystal for second shooting.
Thank you, Olya and Craig, for sharing a fun and romantic wedding day with JFP (they got married on April 17, 2015)! Congratulations! With Franklin Plaza Ballroom, Franklin Hospitality, Patience’s Panache, Piano Man’s DJ Productions, Angela’s Bridal and Lovecraft Productions. Thanks to Alan for second shooting.
I started the day with Olya at Franklin Square Inn:
The wedding had a 1920s Great Gabsy theme, and Olya’s details certainly provided an element of elegance.
Olya works as a makeup and hair artist, and here’s Olya performing hair magic on a bridesmaid:
How absolutely glamorous is this bride? Wow.
Craig’s cuff links were … wait for it …
Olya and Craig did their First Look in front of Franklin Plaza:
This next photo is from the First Look. And I couldn’t have staged the moment any better than the way it happened on its own:
Olya and I have become friends over the past several years, working on shoots together, etc., and it was an absolute honor to make her wedding portraits. She and Craig brought class and style to the session:
Here’s Olya’s parents seeing her right before the ceremony (which took place at Franklin Plaza):
Finally, it was time to party!
Thank you, Olya and Craig, for sharing your wedding day with me. I will always treasure the experience, and I wish you a lifetime of happiness together!
Liz and Heather recently flew me out to Colorado (where they live) for their engagement session and — more importantly — they invited into their home and their lives for a weekend. It’s safe to say that we all — including Kimber the dog — became quick friends. We will definitely have a wonderful day when Liz and Heather get married at Glen Sanders Mansion (Scotia, N.Y.) in 2016.
We certainly explored the beauty of Colorado, but first we played in Liz and Heather’s home. I have always loved the idea of documenting a “day in the life” for a couple, but it’s never really practical. Except in this case it was. I was in Colorado with nothing to do but make pictures. I couldn’t edit or meet with clients or design albums. So Liz and Heather spent almost an entire day making pictures with me. We laughed a lot. We talked about life. And the ladies let me make some meaningful, personal images.
There were some damn funny moments, too!:
Heather is a lieutenant in the United States Air Force, so we visited the Air Force Academy:
We then visited a little town called Manitou Springs.
We found a walking path with some flowers and the most delightful light:
For our last stop, we headed to the Garden of the Gods, which definitely lived up to its name:
I had to share one behind-the-scenes shot with my assistant Kristyne in the picture:
Liz and Heather, thank you for the experience of a lifetime. And I’m not just talking about the wonderful sights or the fun photos … It was fantastic to connect with a couple great human beings. I cannot wait for your wedding.
Thanks to Katie and Scott for a sweet Saratoga Springs, NY engagement session. Can you guys believe your wedding is just over a month away? See you soon!
Congrats to Angela and Miles, who got married on April 18, 2015! We had a wonderful time with you guys! With The Old Daley Inn on Crooked Lake, Scott E. Hemming Entertainment, Coccadotts Cake Shop, Poppytree Floral Designs, Angela’s Bridal, Beauty with Julie and Erika’s hair designs. Thanks to Alan for second shooting.
I started the day with Angela and her girls (and Moose the dog) at the home Angela and Miles share:
We then hustled to the Old Daley Inn, where Angela got into her dress and where the guys finished getting ready:
Here’s Angela’s dad seeing her in her wedding dress for the first time:
Angela and Miles then did a First Look:
And they crushed their portrait session:
The ceremony took place inside at the Old Daley Inn:
Finally, it was time to party!:
Thank you for sharing your wedding day with JFP, guys! I wish you a lifetime of happiness together!
Thank you, Meghan and Tony, for leaving me a wonderful 5-star review on Wedding Wire. I really appreciate it.
I love the connections I get to build with my clients. I think that trust between a photographer and his/her subjects is one of the most important factors in making meaningful images, and establishing those relationships fulfills me.
As JFP has grown and developed its identity, I have had more and more clients seeking me out because of the specific type of work I do, and I’ve had more and more days filled with honest moments and telling portraits.
Thank you, Meghan and Tony, for giving me the kind of day I love — a fun one filled with beautiful photos.
Here’s what Meaghan and Tony had to say:
“There are honestly no words that are able to justify the awesomeness that is Jeff Foley. From our first meeting with him, we knew that he was going to capture some amazing pictures of our wedding, as well as bring a fun vibe to the day. We booked him on the spot. First off, he’s a dog person, which is an instant win in our opinion. Our dog, who is VERY wary of strangers, went right up to Jeff during our engagement pics and licked his face. If that doesn’t show you what a genuine person Jeff is, I don’t know what does. A dog’s opinion is never wrong! Jeff made shooting so easy and relaxed – we got the awkwardness out of the way immediately. He has an ability to capture these beautiful moments and emotions while making it look effortless. During the planning process, Jeff answered my emails within minutes and made everything so clear and easy. On the day of our wedding, he kept everyone right on track (to the minute!), yet we didn’t feel rushed or stressed. He can tell when you need a quick break or a second to breathe and gives it to you without question. Everyone was very comfortable with him and were laughing and joking around all afternoon. We got all of the formal pictures done very quickly, which was great since we didn’t want people to feel like they were posing for hours. One of the best things is that I didn’t feel like he was pulling us around all night for pictures – that is completely not Jeff’s style. He didn’t interrupt us during our first dance or toasts or any other important times, he was just snapping away in the background. Nothing felt forced or overly posed, which I love. The pictures he posted so far are breathtaking, and I can’t wait to see the rest. Thank you, Jeff (and Alan!), for capturing our day so beautifully.”
