Stefanie & Matthew – Albany Wedding Photographer

What a night! Stefanie & Matthew know how to throw a party – and how to surprise and shock their guests! They planned a wonderful engagement party at The Hollow in Albany. I was extremely excited to be there with them as I knew exactly what was coming..

I loved the details they put together for their decor; flowers, favors, and a guestbook. And nothing says The Hollow like a big sign that says, ‘The Hollow’. 

Stefanie’s cousin Jamie put together this gorgeous art centerpiece for the couple, made of braids and delicate paper shapes.

It’s just an awesome engagement party at this point. Friends and family are arriving from all over and looking good. But what happened next?

Suddenly, Jamie rolls out a white aisle runner in the middle of the party floor, while upstairs Stefanie slipped on a white dress and hugged her mom tight!

Just look at the surprise on their guests faces! Only their parents and officiant and I knew what was coming as Stefanie walked down the aisle to Matthew, waiting on stage, under the former art piece- now a chuppah!  

Emotional moments for their parents as they watched the pair read their hand written vows, exchange rings and their first kiss.

Stefanie & Matthew’s first dance was so sweet- and we got a ton of diverse photos in just four minutes!

When Stefanie saw her complete wedding gallery just 5 days later, she had these awesome things to say about the photos! “I don’t have words.  Thank you thank you thank you.  More beautiful than I could ever imagine.  I’m crying hysterically in my office looking at me and my dad dancing.” More of her testimonial at the bottom of this page.

Stefanie’s maid of honor Nicole gave a fantastic toast and kicked off the Reception part of the party!

Just as the sun was setting in downtown Albany, I got 15 minutes with the newlyweds for these super adorable portraits. Check out how happy these two are!

And then they frolicked.. Stefanie is GLOWING!!

Stefanie is a gorgeous, warm and kind bride- my favorite!! And I love a good ring detail.

Just inside, Stefanie’s friends kept her laughing and then they partied and danced all night! 

I couldn’t be happier for them both. Congratulations to the newlyweds and all the best for your life together!!

Stefanie’s testimonial:

“Lucy truly made our wedding the best day of our lives. She got into the spirit of our unique plans and made me feel beautiful every step of the way. Lucy was professional, funny, kind, and helpful. If you want a stress free day and perfect pictures she is the way to go! My husband and I look at our pictures everyday and feel so thankful to have had her there. I NEVER EVER feel pretty having my picture taken, and she made me feel like a model.  She gave us memories we will cherish the rest of our lives.  We’re both so grateful. Thank you.”
