Dave and Omayra’s Wedding at Longfellow’s in Saratoga Springs NY

Wedding Photographers in Saratoga Springs NY-The Classic Image-Tim and Dana Shaffer

Dave and Omayra had a beautiful day for their wedding in Saratoga Springs last October. When this delightful couple came to meet with us we talked about all the things that were important to them about their relationship and their wedding and how they would like to to see it captured in their wedding photographs. Their love for each other was obvious at first meeting and as we talked it became evident that they also shared a great love of family and that God was a big part of their lives. David was a dad to an adorable little boy and girl and Omayra had a beautiful sweet daughter.  They were a lot of fun and so full of enthusiasm and energy that we were really excited to be able to spend this very special day with them.

 One more thing Omayra mentioned was her love of bright beautiful colors which she planned to incorporate into all of her wedding details.

Love this little man! What tuxedo company wouldn’t want him for a model!

Omayra got this amazing dress from Yvonne’s bridal .

A last minute tete-a-tete for mom and her little mini bride.

That moment of anticipation as his bride walks down the aisle

 This is exactly what we are looking for in the groom’s face as he watches his bride come up the aisle. Can’t you just feel the emotions here? Wow!

Omayra’s dad was unable to make the wedding, so to observe that fact and to give a gesture of acknowledgement as to how much she missed him and his importance in her day, she stopped to a put a flower in a chair reserved for him.

A braid signifying the combination of the two families and God. From the three strands  one rope, much stronger than any of the three combined.

The children helped with the braiding to signify their contribution in the making of the new family.

Dave’s first thought was to thank the children for their help in making the ceremony so beautiful.

The braided rope.

The new family.

Omayra and Dave

Bold, beautiful, vibrant and colorful.

Tim and I both have different ring shot preferences. I love the clasped hands with the dress as the backdrop for the rings.

One of our favorite images from the day.

Tim’s classic ring shot with the flowers as a backdrop.  So pretty!

I love this image of the new family on their way to their receptions. Wonderful example of photojournalism.

This fabulous cake was made by Omayra’s maid of honor. And even though it looks as if it were too perfect to eat, it was every bit as delicious as it looks.

A few detail shots from the reception.

So many perfect details.

The favors were so awesome. Chocolate covered cakes. Each with a story and a meaning.

The best part of this wedding was the awesome dancing. Omayra even had a special cocktail dress made for the first dance.

Dave is an athlete, but his sport is running. Omayra is a dancer and her Salsa dancing is phenonemal.

Dave  took lessons so that he and Omayra could pull off some of the fantastic wedding dancing.

How was that for a first dance!

Congratulations Omayra and Dave! Thank you for sharing your beautiful day with us.
