Sophisticated State Room Wedding Photos | Albany NY

Sophisticated State Room Wedding Photos | Emily + Patrick

This past Summer was a return to Ballroom Weddings after the nonsense of Covid.  This was especially evident in Emily and Patrick’s Sophisticated State Room Wedding Photos.  They originally planned a wedding, but had to postpone–so the party was amazing!  This wedding was also featured in Saratoga Bride in the latest issue, so be sure to check that out.

I love working at The State Room for many reasons.  The State Room is a Wedding Venue that was a Bank in it’s previous incarnation.  It has been renovated into a Ballroom style venue.  Add to that the Proprietor, Tom, has been in the hospitality industry for years and is very accommodating.  He even has a fleet of vintage cars for couples to use!  Finally, the venue is within walking distance of some fabulous Albany landmarks in the Capitol.  So needless to say, State Room Wedding Photos are usually pretty amazing.

Some Of My Favorite Wedding Photos From The State Room

A few of my personal favorites include:

A killer shot of rings is always nice to include. I like how well the shoes matched the rings, so I wanted to showcase that.

The State Room has all kinds of cool places for photos. I lit this dramatically because the venue just called for it.

I feel like sometimes the Groom and his details get a little ignored. Here is a detail of Patrick’s jewelry–which have sentimental meaning.

I just had to figure out a way to get both the table arrangement and the lovely chandelier in a photo with the Bride and Groom.

We were sneaky and went outside to do some night photos down the street at the corner with a street sign.

A Little Wedding Planning Advice From Our Bride Emily:

“After the Ceremony but before you join the reception, find a moment for just the two of you to soak in the moment.  The State Room had set up a room with Champagne and food for us to catch our breath.  The time was special to us.”
