Troy + Thandie

Have you seen the Hotel Saranac? Been there personally? It is a centerpiece of Saranac Lake. It is the perfect place to meet up on the patio, stop for a drink and visit while you are in town. Troy and Thandie were in town from Chicago spending a week planning their fall Lake Placid wedding. We spent one of our planning calls in person, which is so fun to do.

I help couples figure out their wedding day schedule and fit photography in seamlessly. It’s not always easy to decide when hair and makeup should wrap up, how long you need for family photos and when and where to go for portraits. If you want to grab my guide to an 8hr wedding day you can see how it all breaks down, and have a starting point. I have a custom timeline for every couple however because each day is different!

We ended our time together with a mini engagement session and I succeeded in making our tiny mountain town look like it could be any beautiful city. Obviously I love this place and it’s natural beauty, but it’s fun to capture it in a completely different way – and it fit Troy and Thandie perfectly.

See you again this fall! Thanks to my lab The Find Lab for processing and scanning. These images were shot on Ektar on my Contax 645 medium format film camera in Saranac Lake, New York,
