Before I left for the D.R. back in June, I had the wonderful opportunity to shoot the wedding of Mary and Tim in a small town called Lowville in upstate New York. A good (and fair) question is, “How did you find yourself photographing a wedding in upstate New York?” The past few weddings I’ve been using a second photographer, a girl by the name of Sam who goes to my church. These are actually Sam’s friends from college who got in touch with her who put them in touch with me. The end result was an 8 hour car ride to Lowville, New York with Sam on Friday and a lovely wedding on Saturday!
The ceremony itself took place is a small baptist church in the downtown Lowville area. The couple opted to see each other beforehand and, well, let’s just say the bride had a unique way of getting the groom to turn around! The ceremony itself was very nice and relaxed, and it fit this incredibly nice (and relaxed) couple!
The reception was held at a place called Beaver Camp, which is a Christian summer camp that Mary used to attend when she was younger. This was by no means a formal reception. Guests were invited (and encouraged) to walk around the camp, take boats out on the lake, and generally enjoy the weekend at a summer camp in the woods! Dinner was served in a big log cabin of sorts (as you’ll see) which was the main dining hall for the camp. Most of the guests even stayed on the grounds that weekend. It as a unique experience with a very distinct summery feel, and it was fantastic!
After the food was served, toasts were given, the cake (which was made by the grooms sister) was cut, and bubbles were blown, Mary and Tim walked off together as happy newlyweds! Now on to the pictures!

I had a wonderful time Mary and Tim, and I thank you for allowing me (and Sam) to capture your big day. Here’s to many happy years!
