Leah & Patrick - Skaneateles Lake Engagement Session

Leah and Patrick have the most touching proposal story I have ever heard. This is what Leah sent me in her initial email, "I have recently become engaged to my boyfriend of almost 8 years. He proposed to me in the village of Skaneateles, on the water, on the 5 year anniversary of my father's death. It was a very special day, with a very special person. My fiancé wanted me to finally have a happy memory of such a tragic day in my life. I would love for you to capture each moment of my wedding day." I want to applaud Patrick for being an incredibly thoughtful and kind man for bringing a glimmer of joy into a very dark day in her life, Leah you have a wonderful man (Patrick you're a lucky guy, too)!  I am so honored they chose me to document their wedding day!
