Lindsey and Russ’s Saratoga Wedding

I knew both Lindsey and Russ through the live music scene in Upstate New York. We had a lot of the same friends and loved a lot of the same music. Out of the blue I was contacted by them asking if I would photograph their wedding. I jokingly reminded them that while I did weddings from time to time, they wouldn’t look quite like my music photos. After a good laugh they explained how intimate their ceremony was going to be and how after they saw the photos of my own wedding and how small that was, they wanted to do something similar. Their idea was to go to the park surrounding the Saratoga Performing Arts Center and find a quiet nook to do the ceremony and photos. On the day of the wedding, it was raining very hard in the morning and there was a little panic setting in for everyone involved. Luckily though, the weather gods were in our favor and the rain turned to overcast and finally just a slight splash of sun. The whole photo shoot and ceremony took a little over an hour and then we all went out for dinner and cake. They are two of the nicest people in the Capitol Region and I was so happy I was asked to capture their special day.
