Tase & Jeff - Wedding - Hamilton, NY

I kicked off my 2017 wedding season by documenting the wedding of Tase and Jeff. This sweet couple got married over Memorial day weekend at the White Eagle Banquet and Conference Center in Hamilton, NY. Although the day threatened rain, in true upstate NY fashion, the forecast changed last minute and the rain held off for a beautiful outdoor ceremony. After the ceremony, Tase, Jeff, and the rest of their family and friends partied the night away. Enjoy the photos :).

Caitlin & Joe - A Syracuse, NY Engagement Session

On a cloudy day, post rain shower, I met up with Caitlin and Joe. We gathered at Onondaga Lake Park for a springtime engagement shoot, where the vibrant colors of nature complimented the romantic feeling that these two brought to their images. I always love taking the time to do an engagement session with my couples so that I can get to know them before the wedding and I’m glad I was able to meet up with Caitlin and Joe. They were a blast to hang out with and as if that wasn’t enough, they made my job super easy by being naturals in front of the camera. I’m looking forward to photographing their nuptials in July at Lake Shore Yacht & Country Club, which I know will be such a sweet and fun affair! In the meantime, enjoy the photos from this lovely session!

Rebecca & Thomas - A Rochester, NY Engagement Session

Right before Christmas my travel schedule aligned with Thomas and Rebecca's and I met up with these two in Rochester, NY for their engagement shoot. Though they now call Virginia home, these two spent their undergrad days at R.I.T. We began the shoot with a snowy jaunt through Highland park, after which we headed over to their alma mater. I had a wonderful time photographing the connection between Rebecca and Thomas and I can't wait for their wedding this summer! :)

Theresa & Adam - Onondaga Lake Park Engagement Session

On a late fall afternoon, I met up with Theresa and Adam to photograph their engagement session. We wandered around the Onondaga Lake Park area in search of any remaining foliage we could find and in the process I captured the love radiating between these two. After spending a few hours with them I can't wait for their wedding day. It's bound to be full of love, laughs, and many more wonderful photographs :)!

Christine & Miguel - A Brooklyn, NY Engagement Session

A few weeks ago I made a quick trip down to Brooklyn, NY to spend the evening shooting Christine and Miguel's engagement shoot.  Despite the heat, these two were troopers and I had a fantastic time exploring the area under and around the Brooklyn Bridge, known as DUMBO.

Christine and Miguel were absolute naturals in front of the camera and I can't wait to work with them again next October when they celebrate their wedding day in Albany, NY.  Enjoy the photos:).
