Danielle + Nefi’s Wedding at the DC Mormon Temple

When Danielle first reached out to me, it was only a few short months before her wedding day. She told me how she was drawn to the artistry in my work more than anyone else she had seen. She knew since I am now in Albany, I would have to travel down to DC twice for both the engagement and wedding. Shortly after she and Nefi got engaged, she unfortunately suffered a stroke and had to have open-heart surgery. It was so tough to read this and I was so0oooo happy I was available for their day, August 12. She is now fully recovered and is moving off to San Francisco with Nefi where he recently got a job with Mozilla! When we met in June for the engagement shoot, I could tell these were two warm and genuine people. We had such a great time shooting and their love was evident with very few posing instructions from me! On their wedding day, I got the opportunity to get to know their family members who were all so sweet and gracious and amazingly easy to work with. They were married at the DC Mormon Temple which has strict rules on ceremony viewings; as a result, I wasn’t able to photograph their official ceremony and some family members had to sit out as well. However, they have a wonderful tradition where the married couple walks out of the temple doors, seeing all their friends and family for the first time married. Loved photographing that moment and we then did all our portraits outside the temple area, which is nothing short of an epic photo location. They also had a brief ring ceremony before their reception so everyone could still see them ‘getting married’. Their reception included excellent dancing, loving toasts, and me just feeling grateful I got to be the one to photograph these two families coming together in honor of Danielle and Nefi.

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 😉

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!
