Hello Again! Jon and Fara’s Binghamton, NY Wedding

The strange thing about wedding photography is that we work so hard to make your portraits unique to you, to try to understand the couple and make it a “perfect day” – at least where your wedding photography is concerned – and then for the most part you never see us again. It’s sad!

But, amazingly, we have seen Fara before. No, she didn’t get married again and use us both times (though there is no shame in that – we would gladly photograph anyone again). We met Fara as a bridesmaid in two other weddings before she and Jon decided to tie the knot. Both of those brides were back to share in Fara’s big day and for us it felt a little like a reunion!

When the time came for choosing a wedding photographer, Fara knew exactly which photographers she wanted for her wedding day – after all she had seen our work in action twice – and she wasted no time setting up her included engagement portraits last fall.

Well, the big day arrived and it was nothing less than perfect. Here are a few images to capture the emotions of the day.

In case you wanted to know, the dress came from Wedding Works and the flowers were designed by Becky Cooper of HollyBerries.

The ceremony took place at Endwell United Methodist Church in Endwell, NY

What would a Binghamton wedding be without a carousel?

The cake came from Baked By Camille

The reception was held at the Holiday Inn Arena, and decorations were by House of Treasures.

Check out the custom made photo guest book with their engagement pictures in it. Now they have a keepsake instead of a dust collecting guest book.

Thank you Fara for being such a great bride to work with and for trusting us with your wedding. Oh, and Jon too of course! Congratulations to you both – it was a special day and we wish you a long and loving future. Who knows, maybe we’ll see some of your bridesmaids again!

Fun Idea Friday: The Writing on The Wall at Binghamton, NY Weddings

Dynamic Lightscaping. Wall Monograms. Name projections. Uplighting. Whatever you call it, there is something exciting happening at weddings in Binghamton, NY and we are big fans.

More than just providing music, most DJ’s can now provide a whole lighting atmosphere, transforming your reception venue into something magical. Probably our favorite feature is the projected monograms or names on the wall. Check out some of the reception photographs from Jessica and Jon’s wedding at the Owego Treadway.

In this case their DJ was Jimmie Malone, who may have been the first DJ in the area to start offering this feature. (The House of Treasures did the decorating.) Did you notice all that gorgeous purple uplighting? Not part of the reception site or the decorations, but brought by the DJ. It comes in a variety of colors, and though we are only showing the purple lights here, Jessica and Jon had a rainbow of colors that changed throughout their reception.

Your wedding should project who you are to your family and friends – what better way than writing your name?

Marissa and Harley’s Binghamton, NY Engagement Portraits

Marissa and Harley are engaged! Here are some pictures from their engagement session. Isn’t Autumn in NY a great time of year for outdoor portraits?

There’s just something about black and white photography that will always be classic.

For this one they got the whole family involved.

We look forward to seeing you again next year at your wedding – Happy Wedding Planning!
