What are “Post Nuptial” or “After The Wedding Formals”?
Sometimes couples, for various reasons, prefer to have their formal wedding pictures as a couple (just bride and groom) taken after the wedding day. Sometimes it is the same location as the wedding venue and sometimes it is in an entirely different location. One of the benefits of having the bride and groom formals on a different day is we can spend more time together in a relaxed atmosphere. Their are no time constraints and the couples can truly relax into the photography session.
I was fortunate enough to photograph a wonderful couple –Melanie and Jared on their wedding day. Time constraints did not allow for more photos of just the two of them on their wedding day, so they decided to get some “post nuptial” photos done. We lucked out with some beautiful Syracuse fall weather and a sunset on the horizon.
So if you are concerned about time constraints on your wedding day or just prefer to have your couple’s session at a different time and day, “After The Wedding, Wedding Formals” may just be a good option for you!

Photographing a friend’s wedding holds a special place in my heart. I feel so honored ti be responsible for capturing one of the most important days in their lives. I have known both Billy and Melissa since my highschool days and couldn’t have been more excited when they asked me to photograph their wedding day at the Big Moose Chapel and their reception at the North Woods Inn and Resort in the Adirondacks. Here are a few pictures <3
Hey guys! Your wedding was absolutely beautiful! I feel so fortunate – all I had to do to was point the camera in your general direction and push the button. These are basically just “Getting Ready” pictures but wanted to give you guys something while you wait. I developed the images in various ways.. Nothing is definite, just having fun and experimenting. Hope you two love birds are enjoying your new lives together!
Hey guys.. Congratulations! Your wedding was absolutely amazing and I am so glad I was able to be a part of capturing this beautiful day. The weather gods were with us!!! I haven’t even seen 95% of the photos, but wanted to give you guys a few while you patiently wait (wink wink) ~
