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 😀 These two have so so much fun together ❤ Just love the architecture in Sky! ❤ ❤ ❤ Love that all the girls were great about being outside while it rained, how awesome is the city reflection in their photos!! Handsome groomsmen! And so much fun! A fun bridal party!! Off to get married!! ❤

Such a romantic setting with stunning colors and details! We just loved Kandice’s wedding dress! And they had the sweetest first dance! OMG!<3   ❤ ❤ ❤

DiCastro’s Private Beach Club Wedding | Sylvan Beach, NY | Lexi & Cody

Almost two  weeks ago Lexi & Cody pronounced their love & commitment in front of all of their family and friends at Holy Family Church and celebrated at  DiCastro’s Private Beach Club in Sylvan Beach, NY!

Their day  was filled with love, laughter, joy, and so many special touches and thoughtful surprises. I love how long they have been in each others lives and how close their families are.  I loved how many people helped make their day so special and perfect for them.  The in-between moments, the joy, the laughter and just an absolutely fun day.  And especially this couple, you can tell they are best friends, how playful they are, how sweet and kind they are to each other, and how beautiful they are individually to everyone around them.   Thank y’all so much for choosing us to document this part of your love story!

A Hayloft on the Arch Wedding | Vernon Center, NY | Pat & Amanda

Although it was five months ago, it feels like yesterday we entered Hayloft on the Arch to a room full of girls excitedly getting ready for Pat & Amanda’s wedding day.  I still remember all the special touches and thoughtful surprises that brought tears to Amanda.  The windmill added to her bouquet in remembrance of her grandmother, the moment she saw people so special to her heart arrived and filled her heart, and the moment she saw her soon to be husband the first time that day- smiles so so big.

Its amazing how it was five months ago but going through the moments captured it feels like yesterday, the power of photography and its ability to evoke the emotions felt at the moment in time it was captured.

Enjoy the moments captured! Thanks for visiting ❤ Cylinda

I am obsessed with the first look!! Being married, I wish we did this, it is truly the most amount of one on one time you get with your groom on your wedding day! I always joke that I barely saw my husband on our wedding day (but its so true!) with the craziness of the day it is hard to stop and really spend time with one another!

Also you get a true reaction of seeing each other for the first time without worrying about everyone else around you and your reactions are in the same frame in the camera rather than separate photos.  Just love these moments captured during Pat & Amanda’s first look ❤ 

When its raining and your bride is totally on board with sitting down! ❤ #MYKINDOFBRIDE 🙂 hahaha I think someone stepped on his toe! 😀 LOVE kids in weddings! ❤ This outtake is a favorite! In love with the charm of Hayloft on the Arch! Such a gorgeous venue with owners truly committed and passionate about giving each bride  and groom a perfect wedding day.  Was so happy to be back at this venue!  ❤ ❤ ❤  The MOST amazing donuts!!!

A Sinclair of Skaneateles Wedding | Kelly & Jon

We had the honor to document so many love stories, high school seniors, children and families this year we wanted to share some moments captured throughout the year this winter with everyone that we didn’t have time to share over the summer!

We absolutely loved the charm of the Sinclair of Skaneateles venue in Skaneateles, NY.  There is so much character at this venue and a bridal suite for getting ready is a photographers dream.  And to top it off a beautiful couple, so happy, so in love, and with wonderful family and friends filled with so many touching moments just made this a perfect day.

The wedding was in June and I still remember the tears that fell when Kelly’s dad choked up trying to toast his daughter and son-in-law.  The moment they saw each other during their first look was so sweet, tears and laughter. The way Jon makes Kelly laugh, and how she makes him smile and the undoubtable love they have for one another.  Well that is enough from me, I will let the moments captured show their story of their wedding day!

Much love and appreciation! Cylinda B
