Hello there!
My name is Simone Fox and I'm so glad you found your way to my blog! I am a wedding and lifestyle photographer who kicked off 2017 by relocating to Albany, NY, however I am still available to come out to Northern Virginia/DC, but also anywhere in the world as I love to travel! Check out my Instagram to the right (and add me!) for more pictures of my clients and to get a peek at my personal life! Fair warning, aside from pretty wedding stories, my feed consists heavily of cats, recent meals, and nature imagery. If you are looking for wedding and portrait services, check out my information tab above and for inquiries, please email me at pointe315@gmail.com; I'd love to chat with you!

Danielle + Jonathan’s Saratoga Engagement

I had a great time working with Danielle and Jon capturing their engagements at the beautiful Congress Park and Yaddo Gardens in Saratoga. I just loved their coordinated outfit choices; Danielle’s dress was so gorgeous! Congress Park is actually where they got to know each other as they started dating. We checked out their favorite hang out spots, including a merry-go-round! Jon used to be on the Saratoga police force so we even got a picture with one of his friends on a police horse! It was definitely fitting as Saratoga has a thriving horse racing culture. The Yaddo Garden is quickly becoming one of my favorite photo locations; colorful roses and fountains galore! The two of them got engaged at Disney World, how awesome is that? They brought a Disney themed prop to use for ring shots and I love how they turned out. These two were so easy to work with and I’m so happy I was able to capture this special time in their lives. Enjoy the pictures!

Liz + Sean’s Downtown Troy Engagement

Today, I’m excited to share some favorites from Liz + Sean’s engagement. Liz and Sean were one of the first clients to contact me since moving to New York. As soon as the three of us sat down to discuss wedding details it was clear we were a great fit! Both Liz and Sean are very active in the local community, both environmental/political advocates, and Liz was even recently honored for her clean water advocacy in a local 40 under 40 campaign! So proud to be serving such passionate people in my business 🙂 We decided to do the engagement shoot around a few of their favorite spots in downtown Troy and we finished up at Prospect Park which has a beautiful sunset overlook spot. I was really excited to finally have a shoot in downtown Troy; it has so many beautiful corners from lovely brownstones to a colorful new street art project that just appeared a few weeks ago. Enjoy!!

Announcements!

Hello All! I’m really excited to share a few announcements and recent changes to Simone Fox Photography.

Announcement 1: I know it has been a while since my last post; that’s because as of January 2017, I am officially based out of Watervliet, NY, just north of Albany. Moving and re-starting a business in a new town is quite an ordeal! The real reason I made the move is because I’ve spent the last 3.5 years in a long distance relationship with this awesome guy, Andrew. We decided to go long-distance when he moved to the Albany area to finish up his Electrical Engineering degree at RPI. The long distance thing surprisingly worked really well for us and despite being so far away from each other we grew closer. So when he was offered a great job with a local business, we decided to start working on moving in together. Finally, after a lot of planning and preparation, my cat and I are officially settled in our little apartment in Watervliet and I am actively booking 2017/2018 weddings in the Albany area!

 

Announcement 2: I am now running a special discount of $500 off your wedding photography package if you are located near Albany! This discount will be available for a limited time only 😉

Click here for specifics on my wedding photography prices!

Announcement 3: One of my favorite photography communities that I’ve been involved with is the Shoot & Share community. The main feature of a Shoot & Share photographer is that we we give full digital/printing rights to our clients versus the photographer only offering print purchasing. I have been a big supporter of giving my clients as many photos as possible and giving them the capability to download ALL the high resolution images I produce from a wedding or engagement.  So, my announcement is, the Shoot & Share community hosts a massive photography contest every year. This year there were 333k submissions, 50 million votes, 149 countries participating, and over 30 categories. And I’m really excited to announce that one of my images placed 8th in the Ring Shot category! I have never placed in this contest before and I entered 3 times before finally placing this year! I am so honored to have done this well, especially since the images entered in this contest are from the world’s best wedding and portrait photographers. Check out my photo below and the rest of the results for 2017 here: http://shootandshare.com/photos/

Melissa + Kevin’s 8 Chains North Winery Wedding

Driving to 8 Chains North on this sunny Saturday the winds were predicted to be 25mph! It was a windy day indeed but luckily it saw some lulls that we were able to take some beautiful images during! I always say if it’s not raining we have nothing to worry about! 8 Chains North is one of my favorite wineries and it was my second time shooting at this awesome venue. Last time I shot here it was mid-August and the vines were green instead of the beautiful yellow they turned in the fall. I adored the red theme that Melinda had going; just wait till you check out her florals and bridesmaids. Her flower crown is to die for! I also really loved how important family is to these two and I loved all the little in-between games/events during the reception. I want to extend a big thank you to Libby Denton Photography (my earlier October bride and now a Potter :)) for second shooting for me and thank you to Melinda + Kevin for allowing me to be apart of their special day!

Erin + Tiernan’s Irvine Estate Wedding

I’m so excited to share Erin and Tiernan’s wedding today! All three of us attended the University of Mary Washington and Terry and I were both English majors together. I was really happy when they reached out as Terry had always said they’d be in touch just as soon as he asked Erin to marry him :). Finally, after much planning and preparation, the big day arrived! Erin and Terry incorporated a few different details into their wedding day which I loved: the reading of personal vows to each other following their first look and they had a private 30 minute block set up during cocktail hour so they could spend some time with just each other right after being married :). We also had a time set up for sunset portraits during the reception; so glad they wanted to do that! It was such an honor to shoot at Irvine Estate again and this will always be one of my favorite wedding venues! Thank you to Rosie Omar Photography for second shooting for me! A few of her photos are included, most notably the photos of the groomsmen getting ready. And finally, thank you to Erin and Terry for trusting me to capture your wedding day; hope you love the images!
