Lake George, NY
Kalyn and Evan's wedding, for me, was extra special. Being a wedding photographer, every wedding is special, but as a fellow graduate of Lake George High School, I spent many years with Kalyn singing in choirs and acting in school plays. I was immensely honored when she thought to reach out to me to photograph her big day! I met her and her family at their home in Lake George Village as she donned her beautiful figure-hugging dress and veil (assisted by her mother and sister). We staged an enthusiastic "first look" between her and her dad, and then with her bridesmaids. After some quick family photos, we traveled to Sacred Heart Church in Lake George Village. I had the honor of meeting her husband-to-be, Even, and captured his clear love for Kalyn during their Catholic ceremony. Photos with friends and family followed before boarding the "booze bus," a trolley supplied by a local brewery that served as our shuttle to the reception venue: the stunning Camp Chingachgook on the east side of Lake George. The newlyweds and I snuck away for some calm couples photos on the lake. The couple explained how Camp Chingachgook was truly the perfect venue, as it overlooked Canoe Island Lodge, where they had met as part of the sailing staff. The Lake George "floating classroom" barge zipped by in the background, giving tours of the lake to friends and family for cocktail hour. After photos (including fun ones in the treehouse!), we joined the reception to the sounds of a live band. The night continued with wonderful speeches from family, dancing and an amazing sunset over stunning Lake George. Best of luck Evan and Kalyn!
Cait and I went to high school together so in some ways, she was the natural pick for my wedding in our hometown of Lake George. We had no idea how hugely we lucked out getting Caitlin to photograph our special day. With all of the stress and chaos of the wedding, Caitlin was the one variable I didn’t need to worry about. She was organized, efficient, friendly and incredibly professional. We couldn’t wait to to receive our pictures… and CMP did not let us down! They are simply magnificent. My favorites are some of the amazing sunsets and the candid moments that only a true expert could capture so perfectly. We shared a selection on Facebook recently and my phone has been ringing off the hook with compliments. I recommend Caitlin Miller Photography without reservation for any special occasion.
At one point, Caitlin discreetly pulled us from the end of dinner to take some photos as the sun set behind the mountains. That moment, watching the sun set lakeside, was so special for Evan and I and Caitlin captured it all so beautifully. Thank you again, Cait! Rating 5/5
