It was one of those spring morning in New York where you can almost feel the hint of summer on your skin. I woke up to a gorgeous 70* day perfectly sunny puffy cloud day and just knew this was a day made for a wedding.
I met Maria at Julie & Bobby’s wedding in Syracuse, New York last fall and was completely flattered when she asked me to be a part of her and Joe’s wedding day. It’s one of the biggest compliments that I receive as a wedding photographer is having former bridesmaids from other weddings reach out to me.
We didn’t have time for an engagement shoot before the wedding, so I was hoping and praying that we’d get the best photographs we could from the day and that Maria & Joe would feel comfortable in front of the camera. Boy, did they kill it! I was blown away by how natural both Maria AND Joe were in front of my lens. There are many guys out there that being in front of a camera is anything but fun… but Joe was such a sport and was completely immersed in the moment with Maria… I absolutely adored them.
Maria & Joe are expecting a little GIRL in a few short months and I was super excited to have been there for their gender reveal! When they went for their 20 week doctors appointment, they asked the doctor to put the gender of the baby in an envelope and gave it to their baker. They had no idea whether they were expecting a girl or a boy until they cut the cake that night, and hands down… it was one of the sweetest moments of the day!
Maria & Joe…. I could not be more thrilled to have captured this special season and moment of your lives together… enjoy some of my favorites from the day!
REALLY Maria?! Stunning isn’t even the word.
Maria has two different color eyes…. unreal!
