Elizabeth & Marc - Highland Forest Engagement Session

Elizabeth and Marc had a winter wonderland to play in for their engagement session at Highland Forest, a lovely location nearly in Elizabeth's childhood backyard. Elizabeth and Marc are about as far as you can get from Central New York as they make their home in the very sophisticated and metropolitan London, England. They met through work, Marc was setting up a New York City office for their company when he met Elizabeth. They survived a long-distance relationship before Elizabeth decided to make the move to England for work...and Marc. I just love a happy ending! They are planning to marry in Syracuse at Hendricks Chapel and then celebrate at the spectacularly renovated Hotel Syracuse in May, I am thrilled to be photographing this classy couple at two lovely locations...see you in May!

Lenny proposed to Emily at the end of the pier in the village...there are so many good memories for these two in town, that's one reason why the energy between these two was so bubbly! I am looking forward to their wedding next year at the Skaneateles Country Club...they are going to KILL it!

Elizabeth & Tyler - Erie Canal Engagement Session

Beth and Tyler's wedding day is just days away! They were able to squeeze in an engagement session after their pre-wedding honeymoon tour of Europe, luckily we fit in a session at the Erie Canal park on a beautiful summer evening. They often walk the park so they wanted to incorporate the sentimental location into their session...the only challenged we faced was the explosion of Pokemon Go gamers that swarmed the park during the photoshoot! Coming soon...their Genesee Grande Hotel wedding.

Kim & Jason - Skaneateles Engagement Session

Kim and Jason are getting married next summer in his native New Jersey so they opted for a Skaneateles engagement session to bring a little upstate to their nuptials. We shot lakeside and then moved into the village to finish up at Mirbeau, the Monet Gardens are exceptional this time of year. I wish these two much love and luck on their wedding day and in their marriage!!

Shannon & David - Skaneateles Engagement Session

I was so honored that Shannon called me just days after her Easter engagement and asked me to document her wedding (even before they had a date or location selected)!  Shannon and her kids have known some difficult times and that is why I am so thrilled that their beautiful family has found David. During the engagement session it was wonderful to see how seamlessly they all fit with eachother. It warms my heart to watch the kids roughhouse and cuddle with David and to see the peace and joy he brings to Shannon. I am so looking forward to their intimate 2017 wedding at Elderberry Pond.

Kaitlyn & Chris - Emerson Park Engagement Session

Kaitlyn and Chris are adorable! They are getting married next year in the Adirondacks and I am so excited to photograph at a new venue with this delightful pair! Kaitlyn and Chris chose Emerson Park for their engagement session because it's one of their favorite spots. I always suggest that engagement sessions are done in places that are special to my couples, especially those places that can't be incorporated on their wedding day. I think these two nailed it when picking their "happy place" for their engagement session!

Sarah & Michael - Hobbit Hollow Engagement Session

Sarah and Michael are getting married in September. All my wedding clients are offered an engagement session to get everyone comfortable with the camera before the wedding day, one of my goals it to minimize the time away from your guests on your wedding. Sarah and Michael killed it at their engagement session, they were so perfectly at home with me hovering about and it was just a joy to work with them in Skaneateles at Hobbit Hollow. I am so looking forward to creating your Aurora Inn wedding day story, if it is anything like your engagement session it's going to be stunning!!!!

Nita & Kai - Skaneateles Engagement Session

I adore Nita and Kai, I instantly clicked with them and I am sure their Aurora Inn wedding this summer is going to be one of my favorites of the year! They were able to squeeze this Skaneateles lakeside engagement session in on a busy weekend getaway from their home in NYC. I am thrilled they chose me to document their wedding day and I can't wait to make more blissful images of them, thanks for being fabulous and making my job so easy (and fun)!

Cari and Geoffrey - Green Lakes State Park Engagement Session

Cari and Geoffrey are the best!! They patiently waited for the first real snow to add a beautiful backdrop to their Green Lakes State Park engagement session and it really paid off. Stunning pics in the dead of winter? My southern roots certainly made me a skeptic but after this I am a believer in a sunny mid-winter session. I am really excited to photograph their John Joseph Inn and Elizabeth Restaurant wedding in September, I have been wanting to shoot there for years and I am so happy to have these two lovebirds at a stunning wedding venue!

Christina & Brian - Skaneateles Engagement Session

Christina and Brian brought a lot of warmth to a chilly and dreary New Year's Eve engagement session in Skaneateles. The love these two share is so evident, they were a dream to shoot and I am looking forward to hanging out with them on their June 2016 wedding at the Inns of Aurora. We shared a lot of laughter about Brian's Ricky Bobby hands, if you are clueless what that means have a look at this hilarious clip. I have a feeling I will be walking away from their wedding wishing I could be their new best friend, I really can't wait to see the party these two are going to throw!!

Elsa & Patrick - Cazenovia Engagement Session

Elsa and Patrick took me to some of their favorite Cazenovia locations, including the spot where Pat proposed. My favorite spot by far was the Stone Quarry Hill Art Park, I am already planning another visit with my family (the kids are going to LOVE it). These two are getting married next September at Emerson Park Pavilion and I am really looking forward to see how Elsa's Albanian traditions are incorporated throughout the big day (especially the money dance)!

Molly & Rich - Erie Canal Park Engagement Session

Molly and Rich took me on my first walk down the Erie Canal for their fall engagement session, it's a special place to these two because it is where Molly met Rich's Westie and the three of them hit it off (apparently the pup doesn't approve of many people)! Rich loves his puppy so much that he had her help in proposing to Molly with a cute sign he made for the occasion. I am so looking forward to see what their Sky Armory wedding brings next September.

Ellie & Donny - Geneva Engagement Session

Ellie and Donny took me to one of their favorite spots for their engagement shoot, it was a great choice since the trail was just bursting with gorgeous fall color. We finished up the shoot at Donny's dairy farm, I couldn't resist the farm setting for a few pics (Ellie grew up on a dairy farm, too). These two are getting married next August in Skaneateles at the Lodge at Welch Allyn, I am looking forward to the wedding day!!

Molly & Eric - Skaneateles Engagement Session

The title really should read Molly, Eric & Claire since Molly's darling daughter, Claire, joined us for the first half of the session. It was so much fun working with a 5-year-old that will actually look in the camera (my 5-year-old is SO over having her picture taken). Once Claire fizzled out we sent her to play with my kids while the three of us went downtown to visit the spot where Eric proposed to Molly. Where do you think he popped the question? I am looking forward to their Sherwood Inn wedding next summer!

Nicole & Todd - Marcellus Engagement Session

Nicole and Todd met in Syracuse and after falling in love he proposed in a quiet corner of Marcellus Park. It is really important to incorporate a couple's history into the engagement session, it makes the photographs so much more meaningful. It made perfect sense to shoot their engagement session in the spot where she said yes...can you guess which image is the place where he popped the question?

Laura & Nikolas - A Skaneateles Engagement Session

Laura and Nikolas are getting married in November at the Lodge at Welch Allyn but before they tie the knot they spent a gorgeous evening with me in Skaneateles. The were such good sports, they were all in when I suggested we take a walk through a wheat field (frankly, if I had suggested we take a walk through hot lava they would have agreed just to get away from the lookie-loos and well wishers in town)! Thanks for taking my suggestions and making them look so great, see you in November!!!
