Melissa + Kyle, Diamond Mills, New York wedding photographer

As we have said, time and time again, there are few things we like more than photographing a wedding for a friend and seeing a lot of friendly and familiar faces on the big day! Destination weddings come in at a close second to that as one of our favorite things. When those two things come together… well, that’s perfection… but those 2 details were just a couple of the reasons why the wedding of Melissa Maxted to Kyle Thompson, one year ago today, was such a wonderful day for us. You see, their wedding day marked the third time that we’d had the pleasure of photographing the beautiful Melissa! We’ve known Melissa since she was a teenager. Her very creative folks, mother Megan Perendeville and super step dad Mike Harper have been friends of ours for many years, not to mention our very favorite picture framers. Many years ago, Mike and Megan hired us to photograph the kids (Melissa and her brother) and we did a stunning night portrait of them in the streets of Red Bank. We liked that one so much that Liz still has a print of it hanging in her office. That was the first time… Some years later, Mike and Megan called on us once again, this time to recreate a classic art masterpiece with photography that they could use as a Thanksgiving card for their business, Frame to Please. We chose the classic “Freedom from Want” by Norman Rockwell and Melissa one again served as a model! You can see that image by clicking HERE. Second shot of Melissa… in the bag! Fast forward to April 2015 and Melissa is sitting in our office discussing photography for her August 14th wedding at The Diamond Mills Hotel in beautiful downtown Saugerties New York! Well, as you will soon see when you look at the pictures, the third time was a charm! Thanks so much to both families for bringing us “over the border” to celebrate with you and document your big day. Thanks for the very fun rehearsal dinner and the beautiful, emotional wedding day. We wish you both a very Happy 1st Anniversary and the very best in the years to come!02mckay_diamone-mills-103mckay_diamone-mills-204mckay_diamone-mills-305mckay_diamond-mills_1006mckay_diamond-mills_1207mckay_diamone-mills-408mckay_diamone-mills-509mckay_diamond-mills_1310mckay_diamond-mills_1411mckay_MT_1000bw12mckay_diamond-mills_1513mckay_diamond-mills_1914mckay_diamone-mills-915mckay_diamone-mills-716mckay_diamone-mills-617mckay_diamone-mills-818mckay_diamond-mills_1719mckay_diamond-mills_1620mckay_diamond-mills_1821mckay_diamond-mills_2022mckay_diamond-mills_2523mckay_diamond-mills_2324mckay_diamond-mills_ceremon25mckay_MT_101526mckay_diamond-mills_2227mckay_diamond-mills_2628mckay_diamond-mills_2429mckay_diamond-mills_2131mckay_diamond-mills_2932mckay_diamond-mills_2833mckay_diamond-mills_2734mckay_Saugerties_waterfall35mckay_MT_101036mckay_diamond-mills_3137mckay_MT_1017bw38mckay_diamond-mills_3339mckay_diamond-mills_3440mckay_diamond-mills_3641mckay_diamond-mills_3742mckay_diamond-mills_3843mckay_diamond-mills_3944mckay_diamond-mills_4145mckay_diamond-mills_4246mckay_diamond-mills_4647mckay_diamond-mills_4448mckay_diamond-mills_3549mckay_dm_photobooth50mckay_diamond-mills_4051mckay_diamond-mills_4552mckay_diamond-mills_4353mckay_diamond-mills_4754mckay_diamond-mills_4855mckay_MT_1032]]>
