What a perfect way to start off our 2021 wedding season, celebrating the love and marriage of Nicole & Kyano at the Tailwater Lodge in Altmar, NY. Kyano and Nicole met while playing slow pitch Softball and got engaged in August last year. I met them at a photography course, they were our models ❤ and just loved them together. Although COVID put restrictions on everything, you wouldn’t have known, everyone had so much fun and it was a perfect wedding day. Here is the story of their wedding day.
I wish y’all every happiness!! Thank you so much for choosing us to document your wedding day ❤
Almost 8 years ago Melissa and Ryan met on a camping trip, he was instantly attracted to her beautiful smile and she notices his eyes…. They both immediately loved each others beaming and fun personalities. About one month ago they were MARRIED! They didn’t let COVID determine their wedding date and we were soooo excited as they were our ONE and ONLY wedding to not reschedule and what a FUN wedding it was. With a GIGANTIC, fun, vibrant, loving wedding party, beautiful family, fun toasts, and so much laughter and joy, being a part of their day was a true blessing. Did I mention I met Melissa in grade school?! So many memories with her growing (we were angels 😉 ) So hearing from here when she got engaged meant so much! Seeing faces I haven’t seen in 15+ years was so wonderful!
Although COVID impacted their wedding day as far as not having everyone they wanted there to celebrate it didn’t impact how wonderful and perfect the day was. Melissa & Ryan, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for having us be a part of your day. Here is a peek into your day, how we interpreted and documented it. We hope you love the moments captured and you are flooded with all the beautiful feels of your love and marriage! ❤
I love the sentimental details that go into wedding days and incorporating subtly too make the detail photos more meaningful. Melissa’s Grandmother’s broach was placed in her bouquet by her side all day. ❤
Love this moment between Ryan and his new Step Son ❤
Sibling Fight! hehe
Nothing like Momma Son Love ❤
Ryan “I love how much she genuinely cares about me, how loving she is, her humor, she likes to travel and go on adventures. She loves me for me and doesn’t want to change me”
Melissa “I love how patient he is, how much he loves my son, that he loves me for me. He makes me laugh all the time! That he makes me try new things and makes me step out of my comfort zone”
Wishing y’all a lifetime of love and keep each other laughing ❤ Your joy and happiness is infectious. xo Cylinda B
My baby girl is ONE! I didn’t do a cake smash session with my little man, we just had him smash a cake at his party so it was so fun to plan this one! Thank you quarantine! I absolutely love these cake smash sessions. Every baby reacts differently to cake, all sides of their personalities come out, and its too fun to watch and document. And when its your own little one, it just icing on the cake 😀
Here are some captures from her session, hope you enjoy!
OMG can we just talk about these gorgeous bridesmaids…
Father daughter first looks are so so special. Nicole’s Dad is the sweetest..
Such a FUN JOYFUL wedding party!
The guys had so much energy figured we would get them jumping! haha
Absolutely love these two together.
“Peter and I met in gym class in 2010. He was a senior and I was a sophomore. We were immediately attracted to one another and shared similar interests. We were introduced through a mutual friend and felt an immediate connection in which we had to get to know each other more. We went on some dates and the rest is history. We have been high school sweethearts since October 16th, 2010. 7 & and a half years and counting and now we are getting married!”
“I first noticed his laugh. He is one of the funniest people I’ve ever met and he has an ability to light up a room with his smile and laugh.” Nicole
“I first noticed her smile. I could tell she was different from other girls. She had something about her that made me want to know more.” ~Peter
“I love her smile because it is like a ray of sunshine, she just lights up the room and has that genuine happiness about her that is hard to find in most people. No matter how hard times get, she always has a smile on her face and when all else fails, she is the only one who truly knows how to cheer me up. She makes me see the bigger picture in life. No matter what we are doing, we always enjoy each others company and that’s all that matters. She is by far the sweetest girl i have ever met and i can’t picture my life without her. She’s always striving to be the best she can be and makes me want to better myself. I can’t picture my life without her by my side, shes my favorite person in this life.” ~Peter
“I love his personality. He can make me laugh like no other and he has the biggest heart of anyone I know. I love that he would give the shirt off his back for anyone and is very passionate and hard working. He is always working to better himself and I admire that about him. He is always there for me through the good and bad helping, supporting and cheering me on. I love that he makes sure to remind me each and every day how much he loves me and I feel like the luckiest girl in the world. He truly is my best friend and I can’t wait to spend forever with him.” ~Nicole
Nicole reaction when seeing the room was so sweet…Stephanie and the staff did an amazing job bringing Nicole & Peter’s vision to life and they worked so hard all night to make their night perfect!
We worked with Stephanie at Justin’s, she is AMAZING! And so so passionate about her bride and grooms! So happy we caught this moment 🙂
And the party begins!!!
When the bride and groom break out into an amazing REMIX dance! SO SO FUN!
We just loved this special touch, a video of these two sharing their story…not a dry eye in the place!
WOW these DJ’s knew how to keep the party going! I didn’t even want to leave! 😀
Best wishes to you both! Thank you again!

Kandice & Sam are married!!! They got married and celebrated at the beautiful Sky Armory in downtown, Syracuse a few weeks ago. Thank you so much for having us be a part of your wedding day, we hope you love some of these beautiful moments captured from your day!<3 Cylinda & Chelsea! The cutest flower girl!<3 We loved the vibrant colors in their details!! Kandice, you are stunning!! OMG another adorable father!!! He was so sweet today!!We love everything about the first look on wedding days! Being able to capture pure, beautiful, reactions seeing each other for the first time that day and in the frame :)….The amount of time a couple gets to spend alone together in comparison to getting all photos after the ceremony and before the reception. And also being able to capture them with their guests at cocktail hour! Such a beautiful first look on the Sky Armory garage rooftop! A little bit of rain didn’t bother these too from seeing each other ❤ ❤ The best reaction from the groom 😀
