Blue Barn Dresses

From a recent Wedding preparation shoot at White Hollow Acres in Wellsburg, NY…..just when you think that your surroundings might limit what you can create…..then all of a sudden you just SEE how things fit together so perfectly and can work out to create something very, very special.

Time for a “Little Lovin'”

I had a very uncommon weekday wedding yesterday on Monday, up at the beautiful Heron Hill Winery. Add this one to my growing list of “Firsts” as our Groom Nate was a very cool “Little Person”. I met Nate & Wendy in Binghamton last month was was immediately amazed at this guys Overgrown Personality and Sense of Humor! Following the ceremony, we had a lot of fun shooting some fun stuff down in the vineyard and also in the picturesque village square of Hammondsport, NY, and the weather Gods even spared us, as they held off the down pouring torrents of rain until we got back to Heron Hill and were enjoying our dinner under the cover of their huge tent!

“When you gotta go, you just GOTTA GO!”

So a few weeks ago I’m shooting Kelly & Joe’s Wedding down in Binghamton, NY and I’m out on the Golf Course and while I have the Bride & Groom & their Gang walking ahead of me to our shoot location, I saw our little Ring Bearer heading off into the weeds. Then, in the Hazy Glow of the Evening’s Fading Sunset, out of nowhere the Golden Showerstorm appears!!!
You just can’t make this stuff up!!
Nice underpants too! Oh to be a little kid once again!

….and she said YES!

Saturday morning I found myself up in Penn Yan at 10:00 AM! YES….10:00 AM @ The Garrett Chapel!
I had a prearranged rendezvous with Yusong and his lovely lady Emily who were up from NYC. She was totally unaware of what this journey, to the far off reaches of “The Bluff” would hold in store for her.
So he did drop to one knee and ask…..and she smiled and said YES!

If Looks Could Kill….

While editing a recent Wedding Shoot this one made me laugh out loud!
What could she be thinking??

Limbo Granny!

So I’ve been shooting Weddings Full Time now for 18+ Seasons, and over that period of time I’ve shot nearly 700 Weddings.
In that time span I think I’ve pretty much seen JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING. Oh, Contraire!
At Patti & Jeremy’s Wagner Winery Wedding back in September the Band THE DESTINATION, had the Great Crowd kicking some Serious Ass out on the Ginny Lee Cafe’ Dance Floor when someone wanted to do the LIMBO! One problem though…nobody had any kind of Pole or Bar to use for this back breaking dance.
“What Do We Do?”
So in a Flash of Genius somebody came up with the Brilliant Idea… “Hey, let’s use Granny’s Oxygen Tank Hose!” One small problem though….Granny was still attached to it! No Biggee!… She got right into the swing of things by raising and lowering the Clear Plastic Hose on her side of the floor, and someone else manned the Hose & the Oxygen Tank on the other side!
Needless to say….I hope these Images pretty much “Take Your Breath Away!”
