2018 Wedding Season Highlights

Happy new year!! We are entering the new year with optimism and reflection, which brings us to a new winter series post. We had such a lovely 2018 wedding season. We realized just how well-oiled a machine Team SHP is becoming and witnessed lots of adorable, breathtaking, and funny wedding day moments too. The team definitely nailed down the day-of routine. We always work from a shot list and we note our meet, leave, and arrive times at the top. Our estimations are right on the money lately. A good start to our day ensures we are in the perfect state of mind once we’re behind the camera, catching all the moments. We want to share these moments with you today! We’ve looked back at all 26 weddings and have selected a moment from each we thought worth highlighting like…

…a sweet first look from a unique perspective…

…clearing the bar area to get the shot during the reception!

…lattes and Mochas at a fairytale Sinclair reception…

…magical couples portraits…

Looking classy then getting goofy with loved ones in front of an epic Lake Placid view…

….then sharing a dance surrounded by said loved ones at the end of the night.

a surprise song for the groom from his new wife…

…a super fun time outside of a unique photo booth…

…a sweet ceremony ending in a high five!

an enchanted first look…

…the first dance at sunset overlooking Cayuga Lake…

…getting all of the time for portraits, despite the blazing sun! And the bridal party making sure everyone was hydrated!

…a groom’s chance to rock out with pals on the dancefloor to some pop punk…

…a grand ceremony exit with a romantic horse-drawn carriage ride to the reception…

the couple getting the chance to be dapper in front of the whip!

…a cake cutting that ended in the cutest smash battle…

… a Best Man dedicated to bringing the laughs by revealing a custom t-shirt with the groom’s face on it (obviously an inside joke) at the top of his toast…

…an epic surprise for the groom during the garter toss…

…the sweetest bride being helped into her dress by her mom, sisters, and closest friends…
