        Grand Marnier Extravaganza at Hunter Mountain, NY

        What a spectacular night sponsored by Grand Marnier.  Their slogan was “Paint the Mountain Red” and they sure did.  Starting with a party in the base lodge featuring signature Grand Marnier drinks and music by Funk Evolution, Fire Dancers performing up on the slope, a Torch Light Parade from the Hunter Mountain Staff, a Laser Light show synchronized to music and Fireworks to finish the night off, there was something for everyone to enjoy.

        Here’s an extended video from the Fire Dancers that performed.  Watch it in HD by clicking on the HD Logo in the video.

        Tomorrows Children’s Institute @ Hunter Mountain

        We had a great time hanging out at Hunter Mountain and photographing some wonderful kids this week.  The 9 participants are all part of  the Tomorrows Children Institute for Cancer and Blood Disorders in Hackensack UMC. There was skiing and snowboarding, tubing at high speeds, snowmobiling and big smiles all around. Volunteers from the Adaptive Sports Foundation worked hard to make sure everyone enjoyed themselves. Hunter Mountain Ski and Snowboard instructors also gave lessons and even taught some of the skiers and snoboarders  how to ride rails and do jumps in the mini-park.

        A big thank you to Russell and Lois Huntington who were the gracious hosts of this trip. As you can see from the happy faces, everyone had fun.

On Wednesday over 32 teams of five from firehouses all over the East Coast participated in the East Coast Firefighters and raised almost $4,000 for a child in need of a. heart transplant.

        More details from this great two day event to follow! But for now, here is the link to view both these great events.

        { Priscilla and Christofer } | NYC eSession | Summit Wedding Hunter Mtn. 9/20/14

        Priscilla and Chris chose NYC for their engagement session even though their September wedding is atop the 3,600′ Summit of Hunter Mountain.  We love working/shooting in NYC, permit process and all.

        As you can see we stopped at Bryant Park to enjoy the holiday spirit, then off to the iconic Gantry State Park all re-done with the famous Pepsi Sign seen from the FDR and then finally some skyline images.

        That’s why we just love NYC. You never know what, where, or when you will get the shot!

        Enjoy!

        { Julie & Greg } Flushing Meadows Corona Park, NY

        Julie & Greg……what an enjoyable couple.  During their little getaway to the Great Northern Catskill last month, Julie and Greg were ready to cross off “Photographer” on their never ending wedding ToDo list. (Rumor has it that is was really Greg’s job to secure the photographer and yes he did! Little did we know we were going to shoot their engagement photography new york city style.)

        Getting married at the Summit of Hunter Mountain next year, the Kaatskill Mountain Club Great Room was the perfect place to meet and form an awesome relationship.  Hint – It always helps when you can meet and really get to know each other.  During out meeting, Greg asked about scheduling their engagement photography in new york city instead of the Catskills.  We love the city and what a better excuse to go! 

        Now to the eSession……Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens NY was the perfect backdrop for this NYC couple.  Letting their dogs Layla and Guinness run off leash made me a little uncomfortable during the shoot.  Greg had it totally under control and reminded me that it’s no big deal, we’re in NYC.  Not so much if you were a squirrel as Guinness chases one up a tree!  They acted so well during the shoot and so did Julie and Greg.

        Looking forward to the wedding next year but until then, here are some images we liked…..comment and let us know you like them too!

        { Alexandra Lindsay } Fashion Photo Shoot – All About Her

        Last month we ran a raffle on Facebook giving away a total make over and fashion photo shoot for one lucky winner valued at $295. Many entered and Alexandra’s name was chosen by RaffleCopter as our lucky winner.

        Alexandra came to our studios located at the Hilton Center for Arts in Rensselaer where she met Daniel Mosses from Daniel Mozzes Designs for her dress fitting. After seeing almost the 100+ designs Daniel has to offer, Allie picked out 3 dresses to be photographed in.

        Next we got our makeup and hair designers together, Corinne and Chloë, and came up with a design.  Shortly afterwards we head off to the shooting room we went to start our photo session. Allie was a natural in front of the camera and as soon as we turned on the wind machine, everything just fell into place.

        Finally, off it was to Washington Park just across the river in Albany to finish out our complementary shoot. Here are some of my fav’s including a little video I shot. ENJOY!

        { Lyndsey & Stephen } Wedding at Tralee Farm, Kingston, NY

        I met Lyndsey through a good friend this winter at Hunter Mountain.  Without our local bartender Jerry, we might have never met or had the opportunity to capture this awesome couple’s special day!

        Lyndsey described her wedding as “…..it’s a big party in a barn with a band and a Dj, horses outside and lots of friends….”  Boy was she right, a party with their friends and the musical talents of Third Rail and DJ Frankieokie.

        The barn at Tralee Farm framed this reception with lots of country style and cowboy boots.  Even our open-air photo booth sported several hay bails, cowboy hats and Red and White stripes, complements of Drop-it Modern.

        Hope you enjoy these images as much as we did capturing them.  This couple/party was FUN!  Can’t wait for the “Trash the Dress” session as Lyndsey wants to get muddy!

        { Jennifer & Will } Wedding at The Coppertree, Hunter, NY

        Jennifer and Will were such a great couple to work with!  The day was perfect and everything was set for a spectacular summit wedding atop Hunter Mountain’s 3600′ ceremony site.

        Will was ready to be photographed (check), Jennifer was ready to be photographed (check), the weather was perfect (double check).  Get what I’m saying…..they planned it and checked it all off.  It’s such a pleasure when two people who are meant for each other get married and we are there to capture it all.  Enjoy these images as you recall their special day at Hunter Mountain with us.

        I forgot to mention the hashtag’n that went on with the bridesmaids.  If you are confused……. #dazednconfused, #dontgetit, #whatisahashtag, #canIgetahashtag ……. never mind!

        Working again with the amazing clothing designer Daniel Mozzes, I got the opportunity to work with some new models and of course with some that I have photographed before.  Showing off several new dress designs, this shoot featured a whole new hair and makeup team.  Each artist is featured under their image.
