Molly & Rich - SKY Armory Wedding

Molly and Rich celebrated their wedding day at SKY Armory in downtown Syracuse surrounded by dear friends and family on a beautiful fall day. My favorite moments from their day were both provided by Rich's best man, he gave one of the most moving toasts I have ever had the pleasure to witness and then preformed a highly choreographed dance to Lady Gaga's Applause to celebrate the newlyweds...all best men should strive to be this fabulous!!!! Please enjoy these images, which speak to the couple's loving relationship to each other and their friends and family.

Beth - Bridal Portraits - Syracuse, New York

Beth wasn't done wearing her dress after her wedding day so we met to do a bridal session and she invited her niece and nephew along for some happy distractions. Down South, where I grew up, bridals are still a common practice so I was thrilled to bring this tradition north of the Mason Dixon Line. I am officially starting my campaign to make bridal portraits a nationwide tradition...who doesn't want a legitimate reason to wear their wedding dress again!! Bridal sessions are typically done well before the wedding day so it’s a great trial run for your wedding day look. Maybe you will discover the dress needs adjustments, or the lipstick was not your shade, or the loose curls you imagined went flat in in 20 minutes. With a bridal portrait session you will be able to make adjustments BEFORE your wedding day, most brides do a trial run of hair and makeup...put that beauty to good use!

Beth & Tyler - The Genesee Grande Hotel Wedding

Beth and Tyler were married on a steamy and stormy August day which certainly kept us on our toes. Although it may sound odd, I am really pleased that the rain forced us to abandon our initial plan because we found a lovely location near their reception at The Genesee Grande Hotel, sometimes problems become blessings! Life and weddings don't always go as planned but things usually work out in the end...it's important remember to focus on the positives and to savor the wonderful moments which are so plentiful (and fleeting)! I wish Beth and Tyler a marriage filled with more sunny days than stormy but at least they know they can weather the stormy days with beauty and grace!

Welcome Baby Teddy

Erin and Michael were married last summer at the Emerson Park Pavilion and this year they welcomed their beautiful son, Teddy. I adore working with my wedding clients when their family expands, it's so flattering to be asked back and working with newborns is a refreshing break from the frenzied pace of a wedding day shoot. Thank you to Erin and Michael for inviting me to document so many beautiful moments in your lives.

Vidda & Kyle - Franklin Park Engagement Session

The U.S. Air Force brought Vidda and Kyle together years ago and now they are planning a rustic fall wedding at the Mandana Barn. They live in Franklin Square in Syracuse and I was psyched when they told me they wanted to shoot their engagement pictures in their own backyard at the peak of the bloom, just an awesome backdrop for a romantic evening shoot!
