Mark & Joelle - An Intimate Forest Wedding - Hillsdale, NY

As someone who only had 20 people at their wedding, there will always be a special place in my heart for intimate small weddings. Mark and Jo had just that. A small intimate wedding in the woods of Hillsdale, NY. Surrounded by their very closest family and friends, they said their vows in front of a backdrop of trees. After, we spent some time taking advantage of the natural beauty of the area - the fields, the farms, and of course the cows. I had so much fun because Mark and Jo were up for anything! After portraits, they met back up with the rest of the guests at a unique air bnb for a lovely dusk dinner.

It was such a beautiful and touching day and I am so happy I got to be a part of it. Enjoy the photos :)

Twinkle & Dipesh - Cornell University - Ithaca, NY

It was another crazy hot day when I met up with Twinkle and Dipesh on the campus of Cornell University. But despite the heat, we had such a fun session exploring so many different areas. I shoot at Cornell a lot and we still managed to find places I hadn’t shot at!! These two were so much fun and so kind, and they even put up with my sweaty huffing and puffing up and down the trail to the gorge. It was another wonderful session in the books, enjoy the photos :).

Jessa & Daniel - Barnes Barn Wedding - Upstate, NY

Often I don't get a chance to meet my couples before their wedding day and so there's always a little bit of trepidation on my end when I arrive on site. What will they be like, how will the day unfold etc. What I found when I arrived to the salon to begin photographing Jessa was a happy, peaceful soul, and what I found when I met Daniel was her perfect match. Kind, warm-hearted, loving, and very clearly loved are all ways you could describe Jessa and Daniel. 

Their wedding day at Barnes Barn in Upstate, NY was an epic display of that love. Surrounded by their nearest and dearest on a beautiful hilltop, these two said "I Do". After a portrait session on the picturesque property, they treated their guests to a delicious BBQ dinner and a live band.

I feel honored and humbled that I am tasked with photographing these moments for my sweet clients and I am grateful I was there to document Jessa and Daniel's wedding day. Enjoy the photos :).

Kathryn & Nick - Backyard Wedding - Upstate, NY

Kathryn and Nick had a gorgeous backyard wedding in Upstate, NY. The wedding took place on family property and Kathryn's stunning vision turned the yard into a magical spot for the celebration. It was a perfect day for the two to say their I do's surrounded by their closest friends and family. After the ceremony guests were able to enjoy the delightful summer weather and play yard games! Later after some sweet sunset portraits, everyone enjoyed dinner under some fun twinkle lights and then danced the night away in the backyard. I had so much fun being a part of this wedding day and getting to document Kathryn and Nick's wedding day joy! Enjoy the photos :)

Amie & Chris - Fayetteville, NY - Engagement Session

I met up with Amie and Chris is Fayetteville, NY for their engagement session. Amie had a wonderful idea, to relive their first date during our session. I always love it when couples choose locations or themes that are meaningful to them for their photos! We started at the now sadly closed Grover's table, took a quick pit stop at their favorite local dive bar, The Hornets Nest, and finished with a walk through the Canal Park just as the sun began to set. It was such a fun session and these two were so natural in front of the camera. I can't wait to meet up with them again in just a few months for their wedding day!  Enjoy the photos :).
