Susan Knott Photography-2016 Photo Rewind

January 01, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

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!

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.

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  "Saratoga Wedding photographer", "Wedding photography", "Military wedding", "Groom photo", "Anne's Washington Inn Weddings"Military wedding in Saratoga Springs, NY

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!
