The State Room October 2014 Wedding

Filed under: THE STATE ROOM — admin @ 1:13 pm

I sound like a broken record, but we have the best brides and grooms! This was truly a magical day as we ventured out into downtown Albany where Amanda and Alex would be celebrating their special day! As we started our day with Amanda and her bridal party, we enjoyed the ideas that Amanda had for certain photo’s she wanted and Michael’s vision for location and later adding Alex and his groomsmen into the mix made for one fun amazing day! After the Church ceremony, we went back to Albany for the reception at the magnificent 100 State Street! Nothing was left out of this happy day for Amanda and Alex, with family and friends enjoying every moment to celebrate the joining of this happy couple!
Thank you Amanda & Alex for your enthusiasm and ideas and willingness to embrace this day for all the memories you will be reminded of as you view the images of your wedding day. Thank you for choosing us to capture this day for you both and making our work so easy and pleasurable!
Congratulations, Amanda & Alex!
We wish you all the health and happiness life has to offer!

Michael & Nancy

It was a privilege for me to shoot Danielle and Michael Sbuttoni’s wedding, The pressure was on because the grooms father and I went to high school together and we are still personal friends. I know I don’t look that old but I guess I am. However, my photographic skills and style stay current with today’s trends, plus I am still learning after all these years. Every wedding is a test for me to expand the creative process during a day shooting with young couples.

Danielle and Michael’s wedding was no exception, from the hotel to cobblestone street scenes to a walk in the park to twilight photos of downtown Albany, it was a great day.

As always Tom and his staff from the State Room did a fantastic job, the service and food are top notch. One of the entree’s was prime rib. When I say the portion was falling off the plate is a understatement, absolutely “HUGE” , The flowers by Kara and Evan from Anthology were breathtaking. And talk about rocking the house Garland’s band, Soul Session’s did a fantastic job. I’d say awesome but that word is so over used.

The photographer Bob Krist said it best, composition, lighting and a sense of the moment, when those elements are put together correctly that’s called a perfect image.

Thank you all involved for a great day, a group of very talented professional’s working together doing what they do best.

Enjoy from,

Michael and Nancy

The State Room
Carin and Shane’s Wedding
Friday, May 18th 2012

There is an old saying that goes something like “a picture tells a thousand words”, which is why I will just say that Carin worked the camera like a professional! She loves to have her picture taken and it clearly came across for this magical wedding!
From the moment Carin transformed herself from her sweats to her gorgeous bridal dress, the fun began! We started from her sister-in-laws house, then went to the State Room for the ceremony. While we waited for Carin to arrive, we spent some quality time with Shane and his bestman! Entering the ballroom for the ceremony, felt like we were outside in a garden! Being in downtown Albany, is so inspirational for achieving some amazing photos, which is exactly what we did. Along with Carin, Shane and the entire wedding party we were joined by videographer Al Woodard, and went across the street to the capital and the park. Spirits were high and Carin didn’t want to stop, but it was time to get the party started inside.

It is always a pleasure to work at the State Room with Tom and his very attentive staff. After all the formalities, we took advantage of the vintage car that Tom owns and went outside for some more pictures. Inside, DJ Mike Garasi had everyone on the dance floor, where Carin and Shane joined in for the rest of the night!

Thank you Carin and Shane for your enthusiasm and sense of humor!
It was truly an honor and a pleasure to spend this wonderful day with you both!

Michael and Nancy
