Carrie + Danny || An In-Home, City, and Nighttime Chicago Engagement Session

What do you get when you combine A LOT of laughs, a bean, Cardi B, and twinkly lights?  This amazing shoot in Chicago with my friends- that’s what!  Okurrrr

But really… Carrie and Danny are one of my favorite couples EVER!  They moved away from Syracuse last year to take on the Chi town life together.  I knew it would be so special to capture what this engaged time looks like for them- them in their new home, just being them.  We started off with some apartment snuggles, before heading out to a few of their favorite sights, and ended on their rooftop with the city lights twinkling all around us.

Their goofiness is THE best and their hearts are so so good.  They’re the type of people you want to hang out with all day, every day.

B.Foto’s – Best of 2017 Weddings

What.  A.   Year.  2017 was filled from top to bottom with the most loving couples, unforgettable moments, stunning venues, gorgeous details, and craziest parties.  Read on to hear about all my favorites from 2017!

  1. Jumping for joy with these getting ready moments

Getting ready favorites include: {above} Megan and her daughter, {below} Mackenzie and her bridesmaids, expressing their excitement for each of their big days by jumping on the bed!  But also, Mackenzie getting a McDonalds delivery the morning of her wedding.  Because YES.

2.  Let’s in-VEST-igate this groom’s style

Best Grooms Style Suit Wedding Photographer B.Fotographic1

Eric‘s style was all his own. He skipped the traditional suit/tux and instead opted for a wool vest and hunter green khakis. All tied together with a pocket watch from his bride-to-be.

3. Saying yes to these bride’s dresses:

Speaking of Eric’s bride-to-be… Marisa knocked it out of the park too with her BHLDN dress!

Best Wedding Dress Brides Photographer B.Fotographic1
Another favorite dress from this year was Mallory’s. From the SLEEVES to the layers in the skirt, I was alllll about it.

4. Unbelie-veil-ble:

Best of Syracuse Wedding Photography Viel Shots B.Fotographic Downtown Armory Square1

Marlee‘s cathedral veil had me wishing that every bride had one.

5. Love this old, borrowed, AND blue

Best of Syracuse Wedding Photography B.Fotographic Old New Borrowed Blue Grandmas Wedding Dress1

Anna wore her grandmother’s wedding dress to her rehearsal and I still can’t get over it.  What a beautiful and special way to honor your loved ones and bring history to your big day.

6. Here comes the bridal portrait:

Best Wedding Bridal Portrait Photographer B.Fotographic1

This portrait of Emma just gives me some serious feels.  So very soft, yet strong, at the very same time.

7.  [Flower] girls just wanna have fun!

Best of Syracuse Wedding Photography B.Fotographic Flower Girls1

I wanted to join in and twirl around the room in a princess dress, too.

8. Ring Bear-er:

Best Wedding Ring Bearer Bear Ideas Photographer B.Fotographic1

Emma and Mike put a spin on the traditional ring bearer- and instead had a ring bear!

9.  Bridesbabes, dressed to the fines:

Bridesmaids Wedding Dresses Anthropology Mountains Utah Photographer B.Fotographic1

I love the skirts with mismatched white tops for Anna‘s bridesmaids.

Best of Syracuse Wedding Photography B.Fotographic Oswego Bridesmaids Brides Dress1

This one reminds me of Beyonce’s ‘Bow Down’.  And if you can take your eyes off of Steph‘s train… I love the slate-blue color in the bridesmaid dresses!

Best Bridesmaids Spinning Wedding Photographer B.Fotographic1

Last but not least, how cute are these twirling bridesmaids!

10.  Best Man’s style

Syracuse Sky Armory Wedding Photography by B.Fotographic

Navy blue was definitely the color of the year for groomsmen in 2017.  From tuxes…

MJ John Joseph Inn Wedding B.Fotographic198

to suits, with burgundy accents.

Some even chose navy blue for their football unis.

11. Father shows best:

Marlee‘s dad had the best reaction to seeing his daughter all ready to walk down the aisle.

12. First look [what you made me do]

Best of Syracuse Wedding Photography B.Fotographic Oswego First Look Man Crying1

So I’m not a fan of TSwift’s song, but Brandon‘s reaction to first seeing Steph is literally what dreams are made of.

13.  First look alternative

Best Wedding Photographer First Look Alternatives Don't see each other B.Fotographic1

Jeff and Mallory didn’t want to actually see one another before their ceremony, so instead they opted for some hand-holding and a talk to calm their nerves.  (Look for more of this wedding being blogged soon!!!)

14.  Love at first sight:

Best Wedding Photographer Grooms reaction B.Fotographic1

When Jeff finally did see Mal coming down the aisle…. UGHHH my heart

15.  Cere-MONEY

Best Wedding Ceremony Rituals Photographer B.Fotographic1

Marisa + Eric‘s ceremony still has me crying.  A surprise flash-mob style song took my heart.

16.  Arbor flower power:

Best Wedding Photographer Outdoor Ceremony Arbor B.Fotographic1

Arbors have become more popular with the rise in outdoor weddings.  And this one takes the cake.

17. The sweetest love:

Best of Syracuse Wedding Photography B.Fotographic Creamy Black and White Adventure1

I know I’ve said it before, but this shot of Elaina + Steve seriously makes me melt.

18. Wild at heart:

Bride and Groom Flower Field Mountains Utah Photographer B.Fotographic1

Jamie + Anna running through the wildflowers, surrounded by towering mountains is why I’m counting down the minutes until I get to go back to Utah.

19.  Over the moon:

Best of Syracuse Wedding Photography B.Fotographic Moon Nighttime Adventure1

Brian + Kate ft. the moon.  Can there be a full moon for every wedding???  Plz?

20.  So Syracuse:

Best of Syracuse Wedding Photography B.Fotographic Downtown Armory Square2

After Jennifer + Joe said “I Do” we wandered the streets of Syracuse.

21. Location, location, location:

John Joseph Inn in Ithaca, NY  had everything from a beautiful manor, a lush garden, an apple orchard, farm land and animals, (I could go on and on).  There was so much variety and photo opportunities at this venue- it was a photographer’s dream land.

22. Decor galore:

Best of Syracuse Wedding Photography B.Fotographic Downtown Sky Armory Square1

Lanterns and flowers dripping from the Sky, and the simple greenery on the table.  Perfection.

23. Introducing:

Best of Syracuse Wedding Photography B.Fotographic Oswego Introduction Ideas1

Although this isn’t the bride and groom, I thought that their originality deserved a spot on the lineup.

24.  First danc-ing with the stars:

First Dance Mountainous Adventure Utah Photographer B.Fotographic1

Loved the emotion in the room during Anna + Jamie‘s first dance- and then the fun song that followed (which I was certain was choreographed).

Best Wedding First Dance Photographer B.Fotographic1

It’s magic when moments like this fall together.  Emma + Mike framed by each of their parents during their first dance.

25.  #HashtagGameStrong

Best Wedding Photographer Wedding Syracuse Ithaca B.Fotographic1

#KissTheCooks for the new Mr. and Mrs. Cook- not only was there a chef hat dance party, but their card box was a cooking pot and Hershey kisses were at the door for guests as they left.

26.  DESSERT:

Best Wedding Food Ice Cream Bar Photographer B.Fotographic1

Marisa + Eric had an ice cream truck at their wedding as a refreshing night-time snack.

Best Wedding Photographer Wedding Food Donut Bar B.Fotographic1

Courtney + Brett’s Donut Bar was perfect for the late-fall, a warm and sweet treat with ALL the toppings you could ask for.

27. Just DANCE:

Best Wedding Dancing Party Photographer B.Fotographic1

Marisa + Eric‘s wedding came complete with several dance performances on the loft/stage.

Jamie + Anna‘s wedding was non-stop dancing, and even continued for (more than a few) encore songs.

_________________________________________

So very, VERY thankful to each and every one of my couples that made this year incredible!  I am so happy for you and your love!  I could go on and on about favorite things from each wedding, but I’m all punned out.  SO from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU times a million for your support and friendship and for being you!

XOXO

Marisa + Eric || A rustic glam Mandana Barn wedding in Skaneateles, NY

Skaneateles NY Rustic Glam Barn Wedding Photographer Syracuse B.Fotographic-127

I remember talking with Marisa on the phone when she first reached out about photographing her wedding, and she kept coming back to this idea that she had of the wedding having a “community feel.”  It was less about the wedding, and more about them actually getting married (YES!!!) and being surrounded by all the important and special people in their lives (AMEN).  Can we just take a moment to appreciate this… THIS is the way weddings should be.

So the morning started as any other would.  Hair and makeup with the girls at the Sheraton Syracuse University Hotel.

Skaneateles NY Rustic Glam Barn Wedding Photographer Syracuse B.Fotographic-8

Marisa and Eric decided to not have a traditional bridal party.  Instead, they invited their closest friends and family to be a part of their day, get ready with them, and wear whatever they wanted!

Skaneateles NY Rustic Glam Barn Wedding Photographer Syracuse B.Fotographic-42Skaneateles NY Rustic Glam Barn Wedding Photographer Syracuse B.Fotographic-43

OBSESSED WITH YOU M

We sent the girls back inside, and I caught up with the guys

Then everyone headed to the Mandana Barn in Skaneateles for the ceremony and reception.

Skaneateles NY Rustic Glam Barn Wedding Photographer Syracuse B.Fotographic-104

Much of the ceremony was a surprise to Marisa + Eric.  They asked friends and family to speak or sing, but didn’t necessarily request particular songs or words.  My favorite part of their day was watching Marisa, as what started off as just a few friends singing, turn into at least 20 people… and then the entire audience with little egg shakers, singing and shaking to the beat.  She had no idea!  It truly felt like a moment out of a movie.

Skaneateles NY Rustic Glam Barn Wedding Photographer Syracuse B.Fotographic-119

Marisa + Eric’s Favorite Part of the Day:  “It’s hard to choose, but we would probably say the ceremony. We spent a lot of time creating a ceremony that felt like “us.” From the vows, the music; having someone close to us as the officiant, the rings, etc. it was really incredible to see it all come together.”

Skaneateles NY Rustic Glam Barn Wedding Photographer Syracuse B.Fotographic-168

Inside the couple shared their first dance in the sunlit spot-light before heading to the tent for dinner.

Skaneateles NY Rustic Glam Barn Wedding Photographer Syracuse B.Fotographic-170Skaneateles NY Rustic Glam Barn Wedding Photographer Syracuse B.Fotographic-171

Marisa and Eric’s wedding day advice:  “Ask for what you need. Don’t be afraid to ask friends & family to help! My cousin did my flowers, my aunts made the cookies, my best friend’s parents cooked for the dinner, our friend Megan and my sister Marie did all of the decor. Everyone felt invested and part of the day in a special way – and were happy to help. My mom and I made the seating mirror and table names. It felt so amazing to look around and experience the personal touches and community aspect. It felt so personal and touching.
This also helped us “splurge” on a few things – like Gannon’s icecream truck or an open bar the entire night.”

During the speeches, an unexpected letter was read.  Written by her late father, there was a note for Marisa and her new husband on their wedding day.  I don’t think there was a dry eye in the house.  This was such a beautiful gift and moment, I don’t ever think I could put into words.

As if you needed more reasons to love this wedding, they had an ice cream stand out front from Gannon’s Ice Cream!

Skaneateles NY Rustic Glam Barn Wedding Photographer Syracuse B.Fotographic-234

This wedding might forever be one of the most heartfelt and emotional wedding I ever attend.  So much raw emotion, and thoughtful gifts of song/word (and dance!), such authentic love, a real sense of community, coming together to celebrate this couple on their big day.  My heart is so full for you two!

Anna + Jamie || A Summer Wedding in the Mountains of Alta, Utah

Alta Peruvian Lodge Mountain Adventurous Utah Wedding Photographer B.Fotographic-127

Anna and Jamie kicked off their wedding weekend at rehearsal (where Anna was wearing her grandmother’s wedding dress!  UGH) and then we all headed to their old high school for rehearsal dinner.  I was shocked when we arrived and so jealous of the views- I cannot imagine looking out the window of C.W. Baker (my high school in Baldwinsville, NY) and seeing mountains!

Alta Peruvian Lodge Mountain Adventurous Utah Wedding Photographer B.Fotographic-7

The next morning, I headed to the house to meet up with the girls, and Mark went to meet the guys at the Alta Peruvian Lodge (where we would later be returning, for the reception).

(p.s. Anna’s dad made their rings- what?!)

Alta Peruvian Lodge Mountain Adventurous Utah Wedding Photographer B.Fotographic-49

We all headed down the mountain to the St. Thomas More Catholic Church for Jamie and Anna to say “I do!”

I’m going to go ahead and say that this is the best form of transportation I have ever seen on a wedding day.  It’s part bus, part convertible!

Alta Peruvian Lodge Mountain Adventurous Utah Wedding Photographer B.Fotographic-57Alta Peruvian Lodge Mountain Adventurous Utah Wedding Photographer B.Fotographic-59Alta Peruvian Lodge Mountain Adventurous Utah Wedding Photographer B.Fotographic-62

Then back up the mountain for bridal party photos.  What an unbelievable backdrop!

Introducing Utah’s State starting line…

And to the Lodge in time for cocktail hour on the back patio.

Alta Peruvian Lodge Mountain Adventurous Utah Wedding Photographer B.Fotographic-107Alta Peruvian Lodge Mountain Adventurous Utah Wedding Photographer B.Fotographic-110Alta Peruvian Lodge Mountain Adventurous Utah Wedding Photographer B.Fotographic-112

We were welcomed inside by speeches from both of their dads… definitely a highlight of the day!

We snuck the bride and groom out for some photos in the wildflowers.  I literally had to keep pinching myself.  UGH SO BEAUTIFUL!

Alta Peruvian Lodge Mountain Adventurous Utah Wedding Photographer B.Fotographic-140Alta Peruvian Lodge Mountain Adventurous Utah Wedding Photographer B.Fotographic-143

Inside- everyone danced the night away!

Alta Peruvian Lodge Mountain Adventurous Utah Wedding Photographer B.Fotographic-145

Anna’s favorite part of the day:  “Our first dance. Spending those special moments just being with my new husband and then turning around to being completely surrounded by all of our family and friends.”

Jamie’s favorite part of the day: “Standing in the middle of the dance floor, sweaty, smiling, and looking around at all the friends and family there celebrating with us then looking at my new wife smiling and laughing and realizing that I get to have fun with her for the rest of my life.”

Jamie’s advice: “Don’t try and stand around and talk to everyone. Let people come to you and make your way around in a fun and adventurous way. Dance when you want to dance and don’t let the “planned” activities get in the way of having fun!”

Anna’s advice:  “Enjoy the day to the fullest. Don’t worry about pleasing others. Just remember that at the end of the day the most important detail is that you are married. And always always dance!”

Alta Peruvian Lodge Mountain Adventurous Utah Wedding Photographer B.Fotographic-159

And dance they did!  I don’t think Jamie or Anna left the dance floor all night.  AND they definitely had many, many encore songs haha!

The next morning, we rode the tram at Snowbird Mountain, up a 1.6 mile cable to 2,900 vertical feet for a few more photos of the couple!  And I am so glad that we did!

With a group like this, where family is so important to them, it means SO much for us to be included and welcomed as if we were a part of their own.  We didn’t want the weekend to end!  A huge thank you to Anna and Jamie for the dreamiest wedding weekend ever!

Marlee + Scott || A Sky Armory Wedding, Syracuse, NY

Marlee + Scott Sky Armory Wedding635.jpg

The big day was here and neither Scott, nor Marlee, were the least bit nervous.  I guess that’s expected when you’ve already been together for over ten years!  From the halls of Liverpool High School where they had met… to now on this beautiful summer day in Downtown Syracuse, where they would officially become husband and wife!

Scott and Marlee both started their mornings getting ready at the Jefferson Clinton in Armory Square.Marlee + Scott Sky Armory Wedding69.jpgMarlee + Scott Sky Armory Wedding6-2.jpg

and then headed outside to do a first look with Scott!  This was Marlee’s favorite part of the day- and for good reason!

Instead of doing the traditional, ‘guys with the groom’ and ‘girls with the bride’, Scott and Marlee switched it up a bit and each chose 4 people to stand beside them on their big day.  I love when brides and grooms choose to deviate from the norm and do something unique to them!

I think Marlee’s bouquet might be my favorite ever!  I love the cascade style!

Kate + Logan || A Fountainebleau Inn Wedding, Alpine NY

Fontainebleau Inn Ithaca Wedding Photographer B.Fotographic 138 (2)

Kate and Logan first met in Ithaca, so it only made sense that they would return here to begin their happily ever after.  The wedding weekend began with hikes, golfing, lunch dates and drinks with friends and family in the town they love.  Then a rehearsal dinner, followed by a welcome reception to greet all of their guests to their wonderful wedding weekend.

Suddenly the big day was here!  If you’re in Ithaca, you obviously start your morning with Collegetown Bagels.  Then I headed to the venue to photograph some details.

The Fontainebleau Inn is elegant, and charming.  Nestled away in the Finger Lakes, the beautiful house sits on a hill overlooking Cayuta Lake and is trimmed with vibrant flowers and trees to really make the white house glow.

Fontainebleau Inn Ithaca Wedding Photographer B.Fotographic 013

Kate’s dress, from Emma and Grace Bridal Studio back home in Denver, was pieced together after Kate happened upon the skirt and then found a lace top with a plunging v-cut back.  I am in love with the way the skirt moved in the wind!

My favorite room in the house was the study.  Bookcases, a fireplace, leather chairs.  It was quite masculine, but had character and style that drew me in.  I could’ve spent the whole day in there!

Fontainebleau Inn Ithaca Wedding Photographer B.Fotographic 010Fontainebleau Inn Ithaca Wedding Photographer B.Fotographic 011

I met up with the girls at Miel Beauty Bar where they were getting hair and makeup done.

Fontainebleau Inn Ithaca Wedding Photographer B.Fotographic 020

The guys were hard at work too, playing in the lake behind the Fontainebleau Inn.

Now came the time for everyone to get dressed and ready!  The guys were on one end of the house, and the girls were on the other.

Kate and Logan had decided to do a first look before the ceremony so we snuck out front for some photos before the guests arrived.

Fontainebleau Inn Ithaca Wedding Photographer B.Fotographic 048

The way they look at each other gives me chills!  These are two of my favorite photos, so genuine, authentic, and full of emotion!

Fontainebleau Inn Ithaca Wedding Photographer B.Fotographic 054Fontainebleau Inn Ithaca Wedding Photographer B.Fotographic 055

They had each gotten cards for their soon-to-be-spouse so we took a few moments for them to open them together.  Not just one card each, or even three…  I think there were over ten cards total!

They sat beneath a gigantic tree with the lake water glistening before them and waited for Kate to walk down the aisle with her father.

It was time to head inside the dining room for the reception.  Kate has such a classy and elegant style, from the moment she first mentioned her wedding I knew it was going to be stunning…  and she certainly did not disappoint!  Everything was done with such intention and attention to detail.
