Independence Day is a holiday for fireworks, so what could be more explosive than an almost July 4 Wedding at the Mansion in Saratoga NY?  It was a hot, gorgeous day with lots of love and laughs.  Team Mansion was on point as always and it was a joy to photograph this wedding.  Below are some of my favorite images from the day.

I personally like to use black and white for the getting ready portion of the wedding day a lot, especially with the guys.

What better way to send the bride and groom off on Independence Day than with a sparkler exit? Well done!
