Mashia Family - Skaneateles Family Photos

The Mashia's met me at the Skaneateles Country Club on a bright summer's evening for a mini-lifestyle family portrait session. My sessions are very low pressure and unstructured, there is lots of playing, dancing, & even time for snacking (if the session feels like work for your kids the images will show it)! I love photography because it forces me to be present and to really observe situations, their 9-year-old showed me how quickly kids grow up...at times she was startlingly mature and then a few moments later she was enjoying a juice box while sneaking a cuddle from her mom! I feel grateful that I had this evening with the girls to capture them while they were still little girls (for the most part). My favorite part of the session came at dusk...the girl's reward for being awesome was getting to jump in the lake in their clothes!!!

Stephanie & Jason - Skaneateles Country Club Wedding

Stephanie and Jason had a classic Skaneateles wedding, they were married at St Mary's and then celebrated lakeside at the Skaneateles Country Club. Stephanie and her crew got ready at 34 State Street and it is my new favorite wedding prep location...I highly recommend it for your wedding day or even a little luxurious getaway! I had a chance to get to know Stephanie and her family when I documented her sister's wedding, I am so happy they chose me again since it's always delightful to work with their family! Jason and Stephanie were blissed out enough to remain completely fabulous even though we were battling extreme heat and humidity (thank God Jason had the foresight to pack a fresh shirt to change into before the cocktail hour)! They kept the great energy going all evening with The Mere Mortals, it's such a treat when great vendors and people come together to create a wonderful celebration. Many many thanks to Megan and her crew at MLH Events in creating a seamless experience and to Rachel at In Bloom for proving stunning florals!

Sarah & Charlie - Skaneateles Country Club Wedding

Sarah and Charlie are married! I met these two the day of their wedding, by the time I photograph a wedding I have usually met with the couple several times including an engagement session. It's really important to me that my clients are completely comfortable with me and my unconventional techniques before the craziness of their wedding day arrives (plus the couples who book me are awesome and I love getting to know them). The WEEK before their wedding Sarah graduated from medical school AND they closed on a house, phew. Needless to say they just couldn't find the time to fit me in. No worries, these two were easy to photograph...they were so blissed out that they just ignored the camera and enjoyed their celebration at the Skaneateles Country Club. Thank you for completely trusting me to document your wedding day, it was so great to work with your lovely families and CRAZY friends!

Rosie & J.B. - Skaneateles Country Club Wedding

Rosie and J.B. were married at St. Mary's of the Lake in Skaneateles and celebrated at the Skaneateles Country Club on a perfect Saturday in August. One thing I loved about their wedding day was Rosie's choice to do portraits on the grounds of Hobbit Hollow, a gorgeous inn and horse farm near the country club. I strongly recommend setting aside plenty of time for pictures of just the newlyweds on your wedding day and the best way to accomplish that without missing out on your reception is to do a first look, make the most of that time by selecting a backdrop worthy of your wedding day...you won't regret setting aside the time when you have tons of great images to pore over after your wedding day!

Kelly & Tyler - Skaneateles Country Club Wedding

Kelly and Tyler are an incredibly energetic couple who surrounded themselves with an equally animated and huge wedding party making for a wild and fun wedding. It was a lot of work keeping this group wrangled but I was able to collect a range of images that documented their fun-loving ways while still managing to collect a few quiet moments in between the partying. Kelly and Tyler slipped away at the end of dinner to get some beautiful photographs on the docks of the Skaneateles Country Club. I love it when clients trust me, happily take my recommendations, and give me the space to step back and document a wedding rather than keeping me busy with extensive shot lists. Thanks Kelly and Tyler!!

Lizzie & Craig - Mirbeau Inn and Spa & Skaneateles Country Club Wedding

Lizzie and Craig started their wedding day off at the gorgeous Mirbeau Inn and Spa where they were pampered by their own personal beauty team brought in from New York City, these two spared no expense on their gold dusted wedding day in Skaneateles (just take a look at Craig's velvet shoes). We were surrounded by golden foliage, light, and upon arriving to the reception at the Skaneateles Country Club the banquet rooms were transformed with gilded touches everywhere. They provided plenty of entertainment and personalized touches for their guests. I loved the temporary tattoos that their guests completely embraced...I spotted them in all sorts of fun places on folks of all ages! Congrats Fava and Nunzio!

Amelia & Patrick - Skaneateles Country Club Wedding

Amelia and Patrick's Syracuse University infused wedding day in Skaneateles was a perfect day in late September. These two connected as undergrads and they celebrated their SU roots in many ways on their wedding day (I bet you can spot an SU reference in nearly every picture)! You can tell Patrick and Amelia are in it for the long run, they have an easiness with each other that has been perfected over the years. I wish you lots of love and luck in your marriage...thanks for making me and Lauren a part of your lovely day.

Christie & Rich - Skaneateles Country Club Wedding

Christie and Rich met at the University of Virginia as first years, they fell hard and and fast but as we all know not all college sweethearts make it past graduation. Fast forward 20 years to a beautiful spring day bursting with blossoms at the Skaneateles Country Club to their wedding day. It was a pleasure documenting this wonderful celebration of second chances, first loves are such powerful forces in our lives and you can certainly see that reflected in the images made on their day. Thank you for including me in your celebration even if you and your guests harassed me for being a Virginia Tech alumni (Go Hokies)!

Sam and Mike had a beautiful day, it poured for weeks prior to their wedding day and for weeks following...somehow they got a bright sparkling day in the midst of a monsoon! It could have rained on them and I doubt that it would have subdued their joyful day, the love radiating from the newlyweds and their lovely family and friends was infectious, I spent the whole day feeling so happy!
