Kristy and Tony’s Las Vegas Wedding

Wednesday, October 15th, 2008

What a trip!  My cousin Kristy has been a great supporter of my work, and when it came time for her to get married I knew I’d be the lucky one photographing it. Kristy and Tony are so much fun, and I was so excited to watch the event develop- they considered having it here in New York, then thought about going on a cruise, and finally decided on Vegas. They flew me out and we showed Vegas what’s what…
On to the wedding!

I love Kristy’s dress…

And shoes (I seriously can’t believe she walked all around Vegas in those!)

She’s so pretty!

He’s not too bad either.

The ceremony was so sweet, it went from tears…

…to laughter!

To sexaaay!

Mr. and Mrs!

Then we went around the strip and did some portraits… mmmm!

I wanted to hit this sign for the REVOLUTION lounge in the Mirage, it’s related to the Beatles “Love” show, which we saw… it was amaaaaazing!

Aren’t they cute?

Headed into the Venetian for this cool shot at Tao.

And on to the reception!

There was a small stage for dancing, and it was packed all night! I think there was a pool going for how many people would fall off, but it never paid… this is a sure-footed group, ha ha.

This picture kills me… take note of the video playing in the background! If you can’t guess it, I’m not telling ;)

And of course it wouldn’t be a Vegas wedding without this guy…

On Sunday, Kristy, Tony and I headed to the Neon Museum’s Boneyard for a fun shoot (there was also a low-rider convention nearby, which was comedy gold… watching them hit the hydraulics and bounce around as they drove past was endlessly entertaining!)

Oh, can’t forget the rings… we put them on one of the little light bulbs in the signs :)

Hot! They were so easy to work with, too :)

And one of my favorites…

Ok, that’s it for now! I had such a blast with you guys, it was an honor to be your photographer :)

Vegas Preview!

Well, the air… tomorrow morning, at a time of day completely unfamiliar to me (6:15) I’ll be on my way to my first Vegas wedding!  I can’t wait, it’s going to be a blast!  I probably won’t be checking my email much, so I’ll respond when I’m back on Tuesday… thanks for your patience!

:D

Kelly and Simon’s Skaneateles Wedding

Monday, October 6th, 2008

What a fantastic way to end my season (in New York)… I was so excited to work with Kelly and Simon, we’ve been in touch for about a year, and they are such a cool couple -and blog-stalkers :D - that I’ve been looking forward to this for a while.

I knew it was going to be a good day when I met up with the guys at the lake house and the guys were getting ready to jump in the lake.  Yes, in October.  Yes, it was about 60 degrees.

They started the shower running before they went out to do this… ha ha!

Then I went to meet up with the girls at Hobbit Hollow, where beautiful Kelly was getting her makeup done. Love this shot of her listening to her bridesmaids.

Getting the veil in place… the veil was worn by Kelly’s mom at her wedding and was made using lace from her grandmother’s wedding dress. I love things like that!

Kelly takes a final look in the mirror, that’s her dad in the background. :)

This is so dainty, I love it.

Simon sees Kelly for the first time!

Love this moment.

Kiss!

They got to ring the bells, which I am a little jealous of.

This was so funny, Simon kind of paused for a picture as they exited the church and Kelly played along with it and started dragging him, ha ha!

Then we headed to The Lodge for the reception… Kelly’s dad grew all the pumpkins that decorated the church and the Lodge. Ah, I love fall!

And the award for Best Use of a Tie during Air Guitar goes to…

he he..

Portraits… we really had to hunt for some fall leaves, since peak is still a ways off, but we found some and I may have rolled around on the ground to get it (I admit nothing)!

This light was perfect for literally one frame, and we weren’t even posing yet!

Then it got brighter, but I still liked it.

Kelly does her best “stern” look, and it’s still adorable!

Buttercup :)

Ok, another reason why I love my clients… I was pretty far away from them at this point, hiding in the cattails, and I said “Ok, lean back a bit!” of course referring to Kelly, but Simon wanted in on it too… this totally cracks me up! I think Kelly liked it too…

And finally…

Have an amazing time in Mexico, I hope I got this posted in time for you to see it! I had a great time with you guys, congratulations.

Off to Vegas this weekend!
