First, a disclaimer: I REALLY tried to narrow down these photos. It proved too hard. Nicole and Mike are one of my favorite couples and they got married at one of my favorite venues. My hands are tied at this point, you’ll just have to bear with me through the storytelling because I am so excited to share! Nicole and Mike are the kind of people you just get pumped up for, because they’re so happy and loving, it shines through in every shot you take. Nicole is an exquisite bride, an exceptional person. When she put on her dress I just wanted to shoot her ALL DAY! Her details were stunning (hair piece was off the hook!) And then Mike comes along and he is smiling in every shot, which makes my job the easiest thing ever! Add to that, I could shoot every wedding from here on out at MKJ Farms. There is amazingness spilling out everywhere.
OK, I’ll let the pictures do the talking!
The bridal portraits are always the highlight of my day and Nicole nailed them. This dress is from my favorite bridal boutique, The Wedding Embassy…
Can we have a moment of silence for these dazzling flowers?
Nicole and Mike opted to see each other before the wedding. The rain parted for a few minutes so we could have an amazing moment outside by the water!
A few relaxed and casual couple’s portraits before it was time to get married…
Their rings were kept safe by this secret service prodigy. No one messed with him!
This is one of my favorite all time full bridal party portraits because of the gorgeous Mohawk Valley behind them. This shot is pretty much impossible when it is sunny out so I was loving life!
I get asked all of the time if I prefer sunny or cloudy skies during a wedding day, and my answer is always…both! I’m greedy and seriously want both on the same day. I like the clouds because you can shoot in nearly every direction, but when the sun comes out you get this beautiful accent light, so I was BEYOND when both happened on Nicole and Mike’s day!
Come ON, you do not get more jaw dropping than this…
Don’t these luscious flowers and colors pull everything together beautifully?
Ahhh, the formal dances. You already know they are my favorite and I overshoot them at every wedding. There was so much emotion at this wedding, I can’t even…
Just fun party shots because everyone was having an insane time on the dance floor (and on top of the bar) all night! Thanks to DJ Ryan Misencik for his mad skills…
Nicole and Mike, I loved every single last second of your wedding day. Your kind families, your fun bridal party, and you two incredible humans made my job so enjoyable!
A humble thank you.
And of course, hi-fives to this amazing team!
