The Log Cabin Wedding Photography

Galina and Jeff’s wedding at the Log Cabin in Holyoke Mass.

Their wedding was such a thrill to photograph, they were fun and relaxed to work photograph.  Galinas’ dress was just stunning! I am not just saying that. Let’s here more about how Galina found her dress.

First I went to David’s Bridal, tried on 6-7 dresses, and gave up. The next weekend I went to Pearl Bridal in Holyoke. I went in and said “I need a dress for a wedding in 4 months.” They looked at me and said “okay, we got you.” The first dress they had me try on was the dress! You know it’s the one when you can’t stop smiling.

I am always excited about photographing at The Log Cabin the view is amazing and the staff in friendly and helpful.

Here is a piece of advice from Galina and Jeff.

Go with a venue that’s all inclusive except the main vendors such as photographer and DJ.

Also

Make sure to use the wedding day photographer for your engagement sessions. That way, you’ll know their style and have a preview of how things will work the day of. Also, when they put you in seemingly awkward poses, just go along with it! Those will be some of the best photos!!

How was your experience taking photos/working with me on your wedding day?

Fantastic! You were fun, professional, and considerate of what we wanted. You were there to help capture the special moments, but when we needed a few minutes to ourselves, you let us have that also. It was a perfect mix! Your assistant was fun and extremely patient as she had to run around us several times with a sparkler! We also felt comfortable around you right away because we worked on the engagement photos together.

We did the first look. We loved it! It was easily the best moment of the whole day. We read very personal vows to each other in private during the first look. It took the edge off going forward with the day because we didn’t have to read vows to each other in front of everyone and only had to repeat the I-Do’s in front of family and friends. Once we saw each other, it was a moment of happiness and relief and it really felt like we were in it together for whatever happened that day!

For the bride, use the same make-up person for your engagement session. That way, you’ll see how the makeup turns out in photos! For someone who never wears makeup, the trial run for the engagement session made me realize that’s not the type of make-up I want on my wedding day. There is no other preparation for wedding photos. Just have fun! Don’t be afraid to be silly and sweet to each other.
Now let’s get to the photos!

Springfield engagement session with Felicia and Joe!

We had such a beautiful day for Felicia and Joe’s engagement session. I love the fact that they have been together since they were 14. Let’s find out more about their engagement.

  • We met in 8th grade because we had gym class together. Joe, someone who I had yet to really know, said to me “hey, I really like your hair, did you do something different with it? Did you dye it or something?” And so began our friendship. We started dating the following June, after going to our schools semi-formal together.
  • We’ve been together for 8 years. Our wedding is on our 9 year anniversary.
  • November 29, 2015
  • Neither one of us has ever dated anyone else, so I guess we’ve kind of always known, but as Joe has said “I knew I couldn’t marry you when we were 15, so I had to wait it out”
  • It was the day we had decided to set up our Christmas tree (Christmas is my favorite time of year) my sister had come over to “help us” with it. After getting everything all set up and Christmas-like, Joe said “Felicia, I found one more ornament” and he pulled out a heart shaped ornament that said “Will you marry me?” and inside the ornament was the ring. Joe got on his knee and I started crying and saying yes (before he had even said anything) when he stood back up I was blubbering “but you didn’t even ask” I said so he officially popped the question and I cried more. My sister was there so she could get the whole thing on video for us. A completely perfect and unforgettable moment it was!
  • I was so surprised! I definitely didn’t expect it (that day anyways). I should have known something was up, he made me breakfast in bed that morning haha!
  • The fact that we both cried because of happiness, that’s never happened before!
  • My ring is gorgeous! It’s a diamond with a circle of diamonds around it. The band has diamonds set in it and even the underneath of the main diamond has intricate (princessy) deigns with more diamonds!

Anna and Jonathan’s Salem Cross Inn Wedding Photography

What a great time we had at The Salem Cross Inn! Anna and Jonathan were able to get ready, married and have the reception all at The Salem Cross Inn.

When I first saw Anna wearing her picture-perfect white wedding gown that she found at Bridal Heirlooms,

I went to Bridal Heirlooms in South Hadley. It was probably the best experience I could have had for wedding dress shopping. I tried on at least a dozen different dresses. I’m normally very indecisive but as soon as I saw myself in the mirror I knew. My mom started to cry a little when she saw me in that dress.

The wedding went out a hitch and would not have been so flawless with out these amazing wedding professionals

Ladyslipper Designers  – Natalie handled all of our flowers and setup. She even had people there to pin corsages and boutonnieres on the wedding party. She was excellent and came through at the last minute when we realized we forgot to include a few specific flowers for our ceremony. Viren Entertainment  – Shawn got us organized from the start on the structure of our reception, and kept the show running and everyone dancing. Salem Cross Inn –  Nancy and her team took care of putting our all our decorations, and of course the food and location were great.

Salem Cross Inn wedding photography is always amazing with stunning landscape surrounding the inn. I am especially excited as I was able to deliver their hand made Italian wedding book to them just a few days ago. There is no other better experience than viewing your wedding photos in your wedding book.

Without further adieu, Mr. and Mrs. Scott
