2016. Much has been said about this year. It certainly was not boring, on social media, around the country and throughout the world. And we'll leave it at that!
For us, though, 2016 was an incredible year, meeting many new friends. That's always the best part. Friends whose weddings that we shot during the year and those that we met whose wedding days are scheduled for 2017 and 2018! We met more of you during Senior Portrait sessions, Family Portraits, and we even met a couple of newborns, including one in our own family! Thank you for the trust you've placed in Susan Knott Photography to bring home some unforgettable and cherished photos of your special day and of your family.
As you scroll through the photos below, these are just some of the friends we've worked with this year.
Thanks again, and enjoy!
Nicole and Matt were married in Latham and celebrated at Mallozzi's in Schenectady. Here, her bridal attendants are getting their first look at Nicole as a bride! Love those faces! For more of Nicole & Matt's wedding, go here!
During the wedding reception at Mallozzi's, Nicole and Matt stepped outside for a bit of romance.
Amanda and Anthony were married over the summer at the Olde Tater Barn in Central Bridge, NY, and more on that in just a bit. Last spring, we arranged to meet them in Salem, Massachusetts near their home for an engagement photo session along the water.
Our son Eric and his finance Samantha announced their baby was on the way and we took this fun maternity photo (inspired by Pinterest!) before Baby Knott was born.
Springtime was wedding time for Heidi & Jeff as they were married and celebrated at The Vista at the Van Patten Golf Club, in Clifton Park, NY. Lots of fun with their family and friends and lots of Wedding Photos!
We did engagement photos and the wedding photography for Devin & Mike's wedding a couple of years ago in Ballston Spa, NY and Lake George, NY, so it seemed right at home to create some maternity photos for their upcoming arrival. This was their announcement on social media.
As we got closer to baby Mia's arrival date, we met them again in Saratoga, NY for another session. They can't wait!
Laura & Josh are animal lovers, both horses and dogs! They wanted their engagement session to be with their dog, (and as you'll see in the next photo)--their horses! What a pleasure to work with them!
The month of June brought Stephanie & Curt to Saratoga from their respective military careers, in the Air Force and in the Army for a wedding celebration. They had a short break to celebrate their marriage, then Stephanie left for duty overseas. Now, six months later, they're FINALLY enjoying their honeymoon this week! What a great time we had working with these two and their family and friends at the warm and friendly Anne's Washington Inn, Saratoga Springs, NY
Check out more of Stephanie & Curt's summer wedding.
Another military man here....on leave, met us with his fiance Sydni for their engagement session in Schenectady, NY. Can't wait for their wedding at
The Century House next summer! Be safe Chris, and we look forward to seeing you both before you know it!
And while we're on the subject, many thanks to Curt, Stephanie and Chris for your service to America!
Marina, Jen, Aubrey, and little guy with the leaves--Logan, wanted some family photos for their walls! We did a few takes of this and were afraid that Grandma was gonna get buried in the leaves, but he sure enjoyed himself!
Kristen and Kurt were married last summer at Birch Hill in Castleton, NY. They both live on Long Island and brought a ton of their friends and family with them for this relaxed celebration. I say relaxed, because everyone was so comfortable, yet the party never stopped! Loved working with these two lovebirds!
Amy & Frank were looking forward to their fall wedding at the National Museum of Dance in Saratoga, but we got together for an engagement session over the summer at the Rose Garden in Schenectady, NY.
David and Kate love Saratoga! And that is exactly where they wanted their Engagement session! This was springtime fun, but there was more winter fun as they were married on New Year's Eve at Key Hall at Proctor's, Schenectady, NY!
You saw Laura & Josh above at their engagement session with the horses. By this time, Laura is getting ready to walk out to meet her groom at the Gideon Putnam Resort at their summer wedding in Saratoga Springs, NY
Laura & Josh immediately after their wedding ceremony walking through the park. It was an honor to be your wedding photographers! See more of Laura & Josh's day in Saratoga here.
Time for some more engagement photos with Danielle & Pat in Schenectady, NY! Great to meet this friendly couple, and we'll get to spend the day with them at their September wedding ceremony at the Glen Sanders Mansion in Scotia, NY.
It was a warm summer wedding day for Juliesa and Cameron as they shared it with family and friends at Treviso by Mallozzi's in Albany, NY
Beautiful day. Beautiful bride! See more from Juliesa & Cameron!
4 year-old Hannah snuggling and loving her Mom and baby brother days before he arrived!
Then days later, Hannah gets to snuggle again with newborn baby brother, Cole!

Our summers are also full with Senior Portraits! The next two with Abigail from Saratoga Springs High School!

Amanda & Anthony met their family and friends at the amazing venue call The Olde Tater Barn in Central Bridge, NY. Wonderful couple! Another warm but beautiful summer wedding. It was such a pleasure to work as your Wedding Photographers! Thank you!
Another Saratoga Springs High School senior portrait session. Thank you Anna for asking Susan Knott Photography to shoot your session!
Introducing Sarah! Also a senior from Saratoga Springs High School!
August brought us to Albany Country Club, and Amanda & Jon's beautiful summer wedding!
Our next two Saratoga seniors are twins! Here's Julia!
And time to meet Sophie! Both sisters met us for a senior portrait session
You think these groomsmen are happy to get the party started, or what?
Luke played a song for Liz that he wrote especially for her. They were already husband and wife when we took the bridal party for some group photos.
Liz and Luke take a quiet moment outside on the patio during their reception celebration at the Waters Edge Lighthouse in Glenville, NY
Days after the birth of Devin & Mike's baby girl, Mia, I was able to take this tender shot as she rested.
Saratoga Springs Senior Portrait session time again, this time with Emily! Thank you for asking me to take your portrait, Emily!
Amy & Todd were happy to spend a little time in the Stockade section of Schenectady for their Engagement session, as they prepared to be married at the Glen Sanders Mansion!
I mentioned at the start that we had an addition to OUR family this summer. Our grandson, Aiden was born to son Eric and Samantha. This five pound peanut was born a couple of weeks early. We're happy to report that Mom, Dad, and Aiden are progressing nicely, as you can see from the next baby portrait of Aiden below.

Amy & Frank, immediately after their 'first look', looking amazing! They're about to be married at the Dance Museum in Saratoga Springs, NY
And, through the Dance Museum windows, we see them late in the evening dancing together at their wedding reception.
Larissa called me to schedule her Senior Portrait session. Thank you! (Yes, Larissa is also from Saratoga Springs High School)
An aspiring photographer himself, Jack stopped by for his Senior Portrait. Thanks Jack!
Sarah met us in Saratoga, NY for her senior portrait session, but she's actually from Queensbury High School! Sarah's the only one who sorta got two senior sessions. The first time, weather was unsettled, but there was bright blue sky on one side of Yaddo, and a few clouds on the other. I took 3 pictures and the sky just opened up on us. A few minutes of sitting in our cars in the drenching rain and we knew it wasn't going to happen. But we met again and as you can see, we had plenty of sun the second time! Thanks Sarah!
It was Eric's turn in the senior session. As you can probably tell, we met him at the Hall of Springs for some very handsome images. Great to meet you Eric!
Kristen is from Saratoga Central Catholic and I was very pleased with the portraits that we were able to capture, both inside and out!
Saratoga Springs High School senior, Tommy looking amazing for his portrait session this past summer!
Nicole is a senior at Ichabod Crane Central School in Valatie! Thanks for making the call to Susan Knott Photography for your fun senior portrait session!
