Alaina + Rich - Historic Farm Wedding on the Mohawk | Upstate New York Wedding Photography


It was a dream to photograph Alaina and Rich’s special day at the Mabee Farm Historic Site on the shores of the Mohawk River. With Alaina’s incredible smile and the pair’s easy and devoted love for each other the images were a breeze for me. So much beauty and love anywhere I pointed my lens.

Alaina, a budget analyst, and Rich, an engineer, met at a bar in Saratoga. They made their love official on this crisp October day including friends, family and the couple’s sweet dog, Hudson. We held their first look in front of the oldest house still standing in the Mohawk Valley, the Jan Mabee House built in the 1670s. The couple’s gorgeous reception took place in a hand-pegged Dutch barn dating from the 1760s. Enjoy these highlights from Alaina and Rich’s beautiful day!
