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 :).
