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.

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!:

Congrats to Christine and Geoff!

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

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!)!

Here’s Jay with Erin’s favorite stuffed animal (he was bringing it to her so she’d have it on her wedding night):

After Jay was suited up, he and his mom shared a moment:

Erin and Jay did their First Look at Collins Park (Scotia, N.Y.):

We also did some portrait work at the park:

Wow, this couple made my job easy. They are so happy (and pretty) together.

Kelsey and Mike’s JFP review

Posted in Jeff Foley Photography, Uncategorized, Weddings on August 7th, 2014 by admin

Thank you to Kelsey and Mike for leaving me such a thoughtful and sweet five-star Wedding Wire review:

“Something that a lot of couples may not fully realize before getting married is that your photographer is right there with you for nearly the entire wedding day: from the small pre-wedding moments as you straighten your tie or fix your lipstick to the big moments as you walk down the aisle or tear up during your dad’s toast. There is no one we would have rather had by our side capturing those moments than Jeff. As far as his talent, the pictures speak for themselves, but what really makes Jeff a great photographer is his ability to create a fun event. Rather than being invasive Jeff actually enhances the experience so that he is truly capturing a special moment.

“I was initially a bit reluctant about engagement photos, concerned that they would be cheesy or showy, but after our engagement shoot with Jeff I was completely convinced and now I can’t recommend them enough. They really do help you get over any initial awkwardness (not to mention you get some beautiful “casual” couples pictures out of it), and when it comes to the wedding day you’ll feel less nervous and more like you’re meeting up with a good friend. Part of the fun of getting your pictures taken by Jeff is that you can tell he’s genuinely enjoying himself, and his excitement is catching. He doesn’t let you forget that this day is supposed to be fun. It’s also a great confidence booster when he continually tells you how beautiful you look and shares the pictures with you along the way as proof – works wonders on wedding jitters! He even kindly helped me get a good view of my hair, when I couldn’t see the back.

“Even with his fun personality, Jeff is extremely professional and efficient. He had us make a list of secondary pictures, which allowed us get some great group shots with friends and family who weren’t in the wedding party. We love all of our wedding pictures! We had so much fun with Jeff on our wedding day and we can’t wait to have him document all of our special milestones in the future!”

Thank you again, guys! I loved documenting your wedding day. I felt surrounded by kind, loving people all day, and I can’t to see you both again. xoxo
