Van Sleet Extended Family | Great Flats Nature Trail, Rotterdam NY https://www.davidgirardjr.com/blog/2017/5/Van_Sleet_extended_family This group was a blast to work with! What an awesome idea they had ... all of the brothers and their families came "home" .... as they do every Memorial Day weekend. But this year was special ... their parents are both turning 70 this year ... and they had planned a surprise party for them! They needed a reason to get them out of the house so other family members could decorate and prepare for the big surprise! They had been talking about getting family photos done for a while now ... so they called us! It was a gorgeous spring day ... sunny with some clouds and just the perfect temperature! The children were troopers ... the youngest of them being just a month old! This was a wonderful idea and we were so honored to be able to capture these wonderful memories that they will cherish forever! (and we were told mom and dad had NO IDEA about the big surprise they had planned!!) Thanks VanSleet Family for asking us to be a part of your special celebration! Click here to see the full gallery.

Alexandra and Chris | Albany https://www.davidgirardjr.com/blog/2016/7/alexandra-and-chris---july-15-2016 It was a hot summer day at the beautiful Albany Country Club.  The bride looked absolutely stunning in her glamorous beaded backless gown which she got in the city.  The beauty of the dress complimented the smile on her face just perfectly.  She was not nervous ... she seemed very relaxed and very excited to marry her best friend!  Chris, the handsome groom, was a bit nervous ... but you could tell he could not wait to see his beautiful bride and say I do.  These two have a love between them which is clear to see.  During the day they exchanged so many smiles with each other and so many glances that said "I love you".  These two have a love made to last and they are just genuine, kind people ... beautiful inside and out.  We had so much fun working with them and their families ... although a little rain and stormy skies kept us from being outside as much as I would have liked, the photos come together to tell the story of their day.  We wish Alex and Chris nothing but the best in life ... and many years of happiness together. Click here to see the full gallery.

Anyone can clearly see the love between these two! It was an honor to have had the opportunity to work with both of them and their friends and family on their special day! Kiernan looked absolutely gorgeous in her beaded gown … and although she may have been nervous, she did not show it one bit. Alex, looking very handsome … was excited on the inside … but cool, calm and collected on the outside. It was a chilly autumn day and the foliage was just beautiful! They were married with a traditional Catholic ceremony at St. Edwards in Clifton Park and then we headed to Birch Hill in Castleton-on-Hudson, New York for the reception. The church and the reception venue were both just fabulous! The sun was beginning to set as we arrived at Birch Hill, but we were able to get some beautiful formal photos before heading inside for the fun and dancing! Kiernan and Alex were truly a pleasure and we wish them all the best!

Chanel and Jason Engagement | Sacandaga Lake https://www.davidgirardjr.com/blog/2015/9/chanel-and-jason-engagement-mayfield-lanzis-on-the-lake It was a beautiful late summer evening on the peaceful Sacandaga Lake ... Chanel was absolutely stunning and Jason looked handsome also! These two lovebirds met while working together at the bar Jason now owns! They are just adorable together and they both share a love for the lake! We started with a few photos on the docks at Lanzi's on the Lake ... then we hopped aboard Jason's boat and headed to Sand Island stopping along the way to snap some shots on the lake! Sand Island was beautiful and we arrived just as the sun was about to set ... it was an absolutely radiant sunset with the mountains as the backdrop! Breathtaking! These two have so much fun with each other ... they made each other laugh and smile the entire time ... it's clear to see how in love they are! They even opened a bottle of wine and just shared an intimate moment on beach while I continued to snap a few more pictures before we boarded the boat to head back to the docks. Chanel and Jason were truly a pleasure to work with and I wish them nothing but the best for their wedding next year and for their life together! :)

Her gown was absolutely stunning and her makeup was flawless. The best thing about both of them though, was their smiles. They were genuine ... it was very clear to see how much love they have for each other and how happy they both are! It was a chilly early autumn day in Lake Placid, New York. The venue where they said their "I do's" overlooked an amazing golf course with magnificent mountains in the background ... the scenery was truly postcard-worthy! It was simply breathtaking. They did get some light rain which may have bothered the golfers, but to Tal and Amy and their lovely families ... it did not matter. Today was the best day of their lives ... rain or shine ... and I was lucky enough to have been able to capture every one of their special moments! The vows were sincere ... the toasts were heartfelt, funny and honest ... and the dancing and sense of family at this joyous event were just awesome. It was a honor to photograph their wedding and I wish a lifetime of health and happiness for these two lovebirds!

Valerie and Sean Wedding | Glen Sanders Mansion https://www.davidgirardjr.com/blog/2015/3/valerie-and-sean-wedding-glen-sanders-mansion
It was the first day of Spring ... although you would not have guessed it with the chill in the air and the snowflakes falling!  It was the big day for Valerie and Sean ... a wonderful couple who has been together for thirteen years.  They are both so gracious and kind ... and their children are just so adorable and polite as well.  The ceremony and reception were at Glen Sanders Mansion in Scotia, New York ... a beautiful venue ... the whole place just boasted elegance .... the theme was classic black and white ... and the flowers were absolutely lovely.  Valerie was a beautiful bride and Sean a handsome groom ... and you could just feel the happiness between them!  The love and sense of family between them and their children was obvious.  It was truly an honor to photograph their wedding.  The pictures will tell the story of this special day ... they day they became husband and wife......

Rapp Family Fall | Rotterdam NY https://www.davidgirardjr.com/blog/2014/10/rapp-family-fall-rotterdam-ny

A beautiful family and a beautiful fall day! Madison and Sophia brought their mom and dad along this time ... and their pumpkins of course! We went to the park ..... the air was crisp, the sun was shining and everyone brought their smiles! Madison's smile is ear to ear and Sophia, now a big four year old, was showing her style and sass! They had a good time posing (and playing) in the leaves and I even got some cool shots with them throwing them up into the air! Fun fun fun!
