Sara & Anthony - Skaneateles Engagement Session

Sara and Anthony are a sweet couple that planned their engagement session exactly one year to their wedding date (I told you they were sweet). They are getting married next June in Skaneateles and then celebrating at the Lodge at Welch Allyn. We decided to spend a rainy evening lakeside and then we went frolicking through the gardens at Mirbeau...who says you can't make pretty pictures in drizzle!

Sheena & Reid - Aurora Inn Engagement Session

Sheena and Reid are a quiet and unassuming couple that are getting hitched next year at the Inns of Aurora and I couldn't be more pleased that they chose me to document their wedding day (I can't ask for more than a nice couple and the Aurora Inn as a backdrop). We spent a sparkling evening on the grounds of the Aurora Inn and we made some lovely images that I feel reflects their sweet dispositions! See you in a year!!

Lauren & James - Cazenovia Engagement Session

Lauren and James are getting married in at the Brewster Inn in Cazenovia in a few short weeks!! Although they are quite the power couple that live and work in NYC they chose to get married in James' hometown of Cazenovia where he grew up on Critz farms, a place where magical family memories are made. I imagine James had a charmed childhood growing up among the orchards, pumpkin fields and the sugar house...a place that is very special and a natural choice for their engagement session. I love it when we can use the engagement session to incorporate elements of a couple's story that can't be told on their wedding day. I am really looking forward to documenting their Cazenovia wedding day!

Leah & Matt - Skaneateles Lake Engagement Session

Leah and Matt could quit their day jobs and work as body doubles for Prince William and Kate Middleton (except that I think they are both more attractive than the royals)! They were up for anything and they were even excited when I suggested starting our session at a fish hatchery (whahhh). I thought it would be nice to incorporate a little nature in the engagement session since they will be celebrating their marriage at the Frog Pond Bed and Breakfast in October. Have I mentioned how much I love these two and how great the Frog Pond is...I will be in photographer's paradise with such great subjects it won't even feel like work to document their wedding day!!

They will be tying the knot in early October at the Lodge at Welch Allyn...I can't wait for your fall wedding day!!

Elizabeth & Andrew - Green Lakes Engagement Session

Elizabeth & Andrew are just wrapping up their final year of medical school at Penn. They met early on in their studies but they didn't get serious until Andrew tried out some serious dances moves on Liz at a party. Liz recreated the moment during the engagement shoot...see if you can spot the epic moment! This very sweet couple are under a lot of stress at the moment (they have been interviewing for residency programs) but you would have never known it since the smiles and laughter were so easy to come by. I am looking forward to capturing more dance moves at your Lodge at Welch Allyn wedding in May!

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!

Erin & Michael – Beak & Skiff Orchard Engagement Session

Erin & Michael were just delightful to photograph for their engagement session at Beak & Skiff's Apple Hill. These two make each other glow...you would never have known it was drizzling during the session! I am always so excited when my couples have as much chemistry as Erin and Michael, it's impossible not to capture wonderfully intimate and playful moments when there is so much affection between a couple. The sparks were flying on a chilly October afternoon so I can't wait to see what these two bring for their July nuptials at the Emerson Park Pavilion.

She's the THIRD generation to spend time at the camp dotting the waterfront across from the Hamilton Inn so it was a no brainer to choose the very sentimental spot to marry her sweetheart, Kevin. We shot these in May but it may have well as been March because it was freezing, a huge thanks to Kevin for trying to keep Sarah warm...let's hope for warmer temps for your wedding day!!
