The $200 Print credit that comes in your package can be used for ordering smaller lose prints or for Wall Art.  If you would like to purchase prints right off of our website, we can issue you a code that you input in your shopping cart and our professional photo lab will auto fill the order directly to you.  The good part about that is that it will come in a few days after placing the order.  Always check the crop you are ordering because it is so automatic that no human is checking that for you.  

We recommend that you use the print credit to have us make a custom large print or prints for your wall.  When having us custom make a print for you, let us know which image or images you are interested in using.  It's always good to measure the wall space where you will be hanging the photo to determine which size we should order.

Winter Engagement Portrait Session https://www.aelphoto.com/blog/2014/3/winter-engagement-portrait-session We had a blast working with Daniella & Daniel! They had lots of energy and spirit despite the cold New York weather. If you ask Allan the cold weather was perfect as it allowed for the beautiful snow.  He didn't even mind laying down on it to get that perfect shot.

Daniella & Dan chose Garrison Landing in Garrison, NY as their location for their Engagement Portrait Session.  Despite working in the Hudson Valley for over 8 years this was our first time there.  We always love when people show us new & exciting places to take photos of our couples.  Daniel grew up in Garrison & the couple spends most of their summer weekends there relaxing on the family boat.  Enjoy looking at their winter wonderland engagement pictures…

First Look Wedding Photos:  Peekskill Train Station - Hudson Valley, New York

       Dacia & Chris had there First Look Photos at the Peekskill Train Station in Hudson Valley, New York.  Typically Wedding Reception Venues in the Hudson Valley will allow for a half hour Ceremony, one hour cocktail hour and four hour reception. Because this is only Five and a half hours, a way to maximize time with guests is to do the majority of the photos before the Ceremony.  

     First Look Photos are a great thing to consider doing when a couple is having their Ceremony & Reception at the same Location. Couples will sacrifice nothing when we arrange their "First Look" to be a special moment when they see each other and capture those beautiful expressions of surprise when they see one another.  Dacia & Chris chose this location because it has special meaning to them.  We love being able to incorporate personal meaning into the photographs.

Here are Theresa and her Bridesmaids at The Garrison. It was a bright beautiful summer day in June and I feel like I was there when I look at this image and others from Theresa's wedding. Your wedding day happens fast, so savor every minute of it. Hopefully you'll remember some of the days sensations when you look at your wedding photos.

Here are  Tom and his guys at the Lippincott Manor.  This is one of my favorite groom portraits from last year. The sun is right behind the guys just out of the image and lighting up the field. I didn't want a silhouette, so we used a few off camera strobes to catch up to the sun.

Smiling Power https://www.aelphoto.com/blog/2013/3/powerofsmiling For the Camera & in General:  The hidden power of smiling

 

Capturing a person's genuine smile in a photo is important because it presents their best self. That crinkle around the eye or or that glint of light & life communicates volumes about who that person is.  Here is a very interesting talk given by Ron Gutman on the Hidden power of smiling:

Wedding hair beauty images https://www.aelphoto.com/blog/2012/8/wedding-hair-and-beauty-image I enjoy capturing wedding day getting ready photos a lot. Not only do I like photographing the interactions between the family members and bridal party but, the actual getting ready process itself. It's a big part of the day, but what I want to talk about today is the final result of all of that work and getting some great images of that result:  A Hair & Beauty Bridal Portrait

Sheree in some nice light

We enhanced some nice window light with some light of our own and got this great image of Sheree on her day. We'll do some with the Bridal Bouquet as well.

 

Dori with her flowers

We also got great image of Dori's hair and veil.

Dori

You may ask why we're into the hair and beauty stuff a bit more than other photographers. Well we don't just shoot hair and beauty at weddings.

Hair and Make up by Sarah Archambault Sarah Archambault did this hair and makeup (above)

Sarah did the color on this one and Salvatore Boss did the Style and Makeup (Below)

Sarah A did the Color and Salvatore Boss Did style and Makeup

Debra McGarvey of Debra M Salon did the next two (Below)

We do this Kraig with a K shot this of me at the Inner light Health Spa We wouldn't want to work tethered to a computer with all this equipment and with all of these people at your wedding, but we manage to get it done without them.

Brianna Brianna had looks on her day. Here are a few more of her.

Brianna Colors Brianna "Attitude" Christine was also great. I think I was the first Human to ever ask her for her "mirror face".

Mirror Face Christine Happy Theresa Had this classic Bird Cage Veil that was begging for a few vintage Glam shots to be thrown in along with some more up to date looks.

Theresa Vintage Theresa Now These Hair and beauty/Glam Shots take us less than 5 minutes to accomplish at most weddings, require a lot less editing than a lot of professionals might think; They look like this in the camera.  Two more commercial images just for fun...

Sara Archambault and

Sarah Archambault did the hair and make up Sarah Archambault did the Hair and Makeup, but I think that's Salvatore Boss's hand on the right pitching in.

 

Hope to add another topic really soon and thanks

About Portraits https://www.aelphoto.com/blog/2012/5/whataboutportraits There are a lot reasons to want portraiture at your wedding. Images where people are not being directed by the photographer are essential; They tell a story and they narrate the Wedding, but we want images of our friends and families looking at us as they do when they're with us. That's the simplest reason.

And yes, the portraits should be a fun time. We try hard to make it so.Yes they're having fun. Just having images of everyone looking at each other doesn't replace this. Another reason portraiture is important is that life moves fast.

All of us together.We're all together Today How often will all of your friends be able to get together like this? What will this be worth in 10 years? What about the guys? How often to they put on a "Tux"?We look good! ! ! !We look cool huhuh

If you're going to wear a Tux, you might want to try to pose for a Photo. Come to think of it, If you're going to marry a handsome guy or a beautiful girl, you might want a dreamy fine art black & white portrait that you happen to be in.

Something specialSilo Bliss

You might also like to thank everyone by sending them a photo of yourselves gazing at them as though you're with them.

Just a cute classic imageIt's us Allan

About Photojournalism https://www.aelphoto.com/blog/2012/5/about-wedding-photography-photojournalism One of the things I like about being a wedding photographer is that I'm not doing the same thing all day. We shoot portraiture, clothing, shoes, fashion, tabletop details, and even architecture and landscapes, but we shoot photojournalism through out the day. 


Sepia Tone Black & WhiteBride Getting Ready Hair

Photojournalism usually means documentary images that tell a story.  Black & White is a good medium for telling a story, but color  Photojournalism has its place too.Color PhotojournalismLinks at Union Vale Wedding

Color PhotojournalismReception at The Grandview Ballroom

 

While some couples say they place more importance on Photojournalism, they almost always want Portraiture as well and choose a lot of portraiture for their albums. Couples who say they value the Portraits more do the same; They choose a lot of Photojournalism.  We're happy to emphasize either, but our experience has been that couples and families are happiest when they have a combination of both.Portrait in the RainBride & Groom Manor Park Larchmont

I'll add a Portrait and a Details post soon.
