Every time we shoot at the Otesaga, we are either battling the rain or there isn't a cloud in the sky. This was the first time we had soft clouds to add to the already beautiful backdrop of Otsego Lake. Everything weather wise fell into place and we got some killer portraits!
Leading up to the wedding, Kat and Eric expressed interest in using a smoke bomb! When the moment was right, we snuck outside and stealthily positioned everything for our picture. Kaitlin quietly lit the smoke bomb and we grabbed a couple shots. Once we used all the smoke bombs, there were "glitter" bombs in the bag as well. On further inspection, we realized it was basically an enormous sparkler. So we went down to the lake shore away from the hotel and set up our second shot. With the two sparklers lit, my trusty assistant Kaitlin snuck behind Eric and Kat to add light to them. They got a little too big for my daring assistant and she ran past our couple screaming for her life. I can say I have never laughed that hard taking a night shot. All I could think of was the scene from Seinfeld where George Costanza ran from the fire. Eric and Kat were awesome and we hope you all love the pictures we took!
