We had Krissy from our Rock the Prom Dress with The Classic Image video in the studio today. So much fun once again. This time she brought in "Cookie" the cutest little poodle- chihuahua mix ever. Check out the video and stay tuned for new images from our in studio high school senior session.

Carrie + Dave: Engagement Session
The Olde Tater Barn
Covered Bridge Schoharie NY
We stopped to visit The Olde Tater Barn for a site visit with Carrie and Dave a couple of weeks ago. It's a perfect spot for a Country Chic wedding. They even have a sweet tree swing which was perfect for a nice casual portrait.
We went over to the covered bridge while we were there. It's just off the main road and closed to traffic so was a great spot for some fun portraits of our couple.
Another sweet swing on the bridge
Carrie has always been one of our favorite models so expect to see a lot of this beautiful smile coming up. Their wedding is in just a few short weeks and these two are both a lot of fun so I imagine there will be lots of great party photos as well.
And one more because, well, like I said...
We are looking forward to your wedding day!
Tim and Dana

One of our Classic Images in Historic St. Mary's Church in Albany NY.
Tim and Ania were married on one of the coldest days of this past winter. It was a nice sunny day but never got much warmer than about 10 degrees outside. We still took some fun out door photos of the first meet and one of my favorite shoe shots ever. I love a really simple image that tells a great story like this one does. We like to enter print competitions so we will often give an image a title and this one is "The Kiss". (because even though it's just their shoes, you have to know what is really happening here don't you?)
We have seen sand ceremonies done as an alternative to a candle lighting ceremony but this wedding had little bottles of sand for each of the guests to add to the sand vase. What a great way to have everyone take a part in the ceremony and for you to have a great keepsake from your wedding day.

We like to ask our couples to tell us a little bit about their relationship and why they came to see us so we know more about them and what they are looking for in their wedding photos. When Lindsey and her mom came in to talk about Lindsey and Josh’s wedding two things stood out. One was that their wedding photographs were really important to them. They knew our work - we had photographed Lindsey since she was a little girl taking dance class and all through school at proms, sports events, and her senior portraits. The other was that she and Josh, high school sweethearts, loved to have fun. So our mission was to give them beautiful wedding photographs. Their mission was to have fun. I think we knocked this one out of the park.
We started out with some getting ready photos which are always a lot of fun.
It's great to be able to get a three generation image of three beautiful women like this. I am so glad we had the time to set this one up. It turned out great and will be such a meaningful photograph for each of them.
Lindsey's dad escorting her to where Josh was waiting. I love all these happy faces sneaking a peek!
A couple more detail shots. Family is also really important to our couple and this is such a great way to keep the memory of loved ones with you on your wedding day.
We did a couple of our Classic Image group shots with the guys, but this is one of my top favorite set-ups of all time. Anybody have a guess as to what we call this one? Think Al Pacino. First person to guess correctly and put it in the comment section I will mail you a print!
So did I mention that this couple wanted to have fun? What could be more fun than a ball game? We loved watching these two play high school baseball and softball and they were both top athletes. I was a little nervous out there with a camera in my hand and not a mitt.
Father, Coach, Friend: Lindsey's dad has always been her biggest fan. What more could a girl ask for?
Right after the ceremony, Lindsey's "Little Me" gives her the best kind of gift a kid can give.
And a few official photos of the new Mr. and Mrs.!
We try to take as many detail shots as possible because we know that a couple spends so much time planning each little detail and wedding day goes by so fast. Johnstone's Florist always does such a fabulous job with flowers.
This photo shows one of the reasons we love Lindsay so much. I could show a photo of the cake and remark on how beautiful it was but with that wonderful expression on Lindsey's face and her body language, you just know that cake was perfect.
Oh yeah... did we say fun? This was one of the best entrances ever.
It started with the the bridal party entrance song "Can't Hold Us" by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis
Then the Bride and Groom entered to "Let Me Clear My Throat" by DJ Kool.
Lindsey says it best:
"Our entrance was the one thing Josh was in charge of and wouldn't you know that the first time we ever practiced it was in the hallway, right before we got introduced. I think it went pretty well, though"
"We just really wanted to have a fun time and make people laugh, because that's what we're all about. We love laughing and we laugh everyday together, so we wanted to share that with our friends and family."
And so it began: fun, laughter and non-stop party from then on.
Lindsey's niece was ready to party! She danced all night - and so did everyone else.
Thank you Lindsey and Joshua for being such a wonderful couple! It was truly a pleasure photographing your wedding.
We wish you much happiness and love,
Tim and Dana
And because we truly believe that when you hire the right professionals for your wedding that it's when we all will work together as a team that we can make your wedding the very best day ever,
I want to send out a little vendor love for the people we worked with that night.
Big hugs to Dan Keese and his fiance (now wife!) Brooke. Dan shot video (check it out here) and Brooke ran the photo booth. They were awesome to work with as usual and they do a great job.
The very talented Leo Milman for the ceremony music.
All that great dancing? Thanks to Small Town Sound for keeping the party going all night long.
And of the course the staff at the Glen Sanders Mansion. Professionalism at it's very best. As usual. Thanks All! T&D
