Did wedding photos + an engagement shoot with Jessie and the photos are incredible. We had a kind of crazy weather engagement shoot day (rainy in Lake Placid in February = not the snow we had hoped for) but she made our photos look absolutely u...
Our wedding day was hectic to say the least—we had a bridal party that totaled 17 (!!!) people, the girls got backed up in the morning with hair & makeup, we had a shuttle snafu, and we wanted to shoot photos in between our church + reception at 3 (!!!) different locations around Lake Placid. Not to mention it was a high of 15 that day and we took a lot of our photos outside.
Jessie and her team are absolute troopers and we have so many amazing shots to look back on from our big day. I love how real and emotional the shots are—no cheesy, posed photos like you might get from other photographers. Everything is organic and truly tells a story. Our album has everything from awesome portraits, truly emotional shots, coordinated group shots—AND the shots from the dance floor, which really capture the FUN atmosphere in a beautiful way. The only hard part is going to be choosing which photos we print because there are truly so many gorgeous photos that we love. Plus, her HIGHLIGHT slideshows. We got one from our engagement shoot and wedding and they both make me so teary eyed. She truly gets every couple! Thank you, Jessie!

ll the way to where the girls were getting ready to take some shots and find time to head over to the boys for some pics as well. Then they traveled right along side of us to the venue... They even helped give directions to my hair and make-up girl who got lost!! They do it all!!! They were there every step of way and captured every perfect moment. I have so many beautiful pictures the only hard part is choosing what to frame!!

Jessie and Pat are great people to work with. They were really easy and worked well with us as well as the other people involved in our wedding. They seemed to be two people that truly enjoy their craft, and I am very glad we used them! Also, ...

“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.” —Aaron Siskind
I believe photography is one o...
f the most important vendor decision you can make. It is the lasting legacy of your wedding. It’s the pictures that end up as your social media default picture, becomes a fixture in your household lovingly hung on your walls, and is handed down to your children and grandchildren so they can see how happy you were on your wedding day. It is a choice that I believe should not only be due to the work of the photographers, but also due to the personality and ease of working with them. It is this reason I 100% recommend Casey Connell Photography.
I couldn’t imagine being a photographer. The sheer pressure of capturing the precise moment of emotion of a person or between people… I would be beside myself with constant worry that I was missing it. It is for this reason primarily, why I so admire Jessie and Pat from Casey Connell Photography. They have the innate ability to capture a small but immensely meaningful moment without you even knowing that the moment happened or that a picture was being taken. It is a rare gift and I’m so happy we asked them to capture our wedding day.
The description of their photography on their website says that they take a “relaxed” and “honest” approach to their craft. Those two words were the reason why my husband and I initially approached Jessie and Pat for our engagement and wedding photographs. We had looked at other vendors in the capital region and couldn’t help but notice some of the photographers would go back to the same poses for each of their shoots as if the photographs were a mass commodity. What we loved about Pat and Jessie’s work was that the blog spoke volumes about how honest the photography really is. If you scroll through, there are no repeat images or configurations. It showcases each person beautifully and amplifies personality through the photographs. We were further sold on them after speaking with them on the phone. There is no faking chemistry with your photographer. I believe it’s the most important thing to have on a wedding day to be comfortable with the vendors you choose. Jessie and Pat were immediately like old friends to us. Easy to get along with, wonderful to talk to, and true professionals.
The experience of taking the photos with them was effortless! Never having professional photos taken of us before, we were so nervous about the shoot. However, after being with them for a short 10 minutes, we let ourselves go and were able to have fun as ourselves. They would direct us slightly if we were stuck or didn’t quite know what to do in the moment; but we never felt overwhelmed or posed by them. On our wedding day, we never felt like they were invading our space or were coming in at inappropriate times to “get the shot”. They were perfectly folded into the day and kept us on schedule.
The results were magnificent photos, some taken without us knowing that they happened. Magic. The type of magic that allows you to look at the photo and feel the moment again, or if you weren’t there when it happened – make it feel like you were.
You have many choices to make, but this by far is one of the easiest.
Wishing you love and happiness,

These two lovely ladies were great two work with. I picked them because their package is a great value for the cost (reprint rights, 2 photographers, 8+ hours all included) and because they had experience with my unique venue and how to handle ...
it's tall, ornate character. They answered my endless questions quickly by phone or e-mail, and even went above and beyond to turn my engagement photos around to me in a week to get save the date cards printed. Day of they were attentive to every detail we had discussed in advanced and we're just generally helpful. Can't wait to see my full set of images!

I just wanted to forewarn anyone thinking of using this company. I paid 3500 for the two photographers to come shoot my wedding, plus travel, meals, and a tip. They left the reception early, entirely unknown to me, and did a HORRIBLE job capt...
uring my day. I got my pictures back after about 11 weeks of waiting, to see only 650 pictures from the ENTIRE day and reception. There were no shots of the reception room, cocktail hour or any of the details (which my parents spent a fortune on!) as I was expecting. There weren't even shots of the guests at their tables, or really at all for that matter! It seems as though they spent their night taking occasional pictures of one corner of the dance floor. I've got no photos AT ALL of at least three quarters of my guests, and feel terrible, sooo many of them were elderly relatives that I never get to see. So now I have people expecting to see pictures that we didn't even get. I've been literally having nightmares about these pictures, and they're so unprofessional that they won't even respond to emails! I hope nobody has to go through this...your money would be best spent elsewhere if you're actually looking to get what you've paid for.
They're professional prices for amateur photos. I wouldn't recommend them to ANYONE.
