Sarah & Brandon - Lake Forest Camp - An Adirondacks Wedding

I don't know that my words will be able to do an adequate job describing Sarah and Brandon's adirondack wedding, so I suppose it's a good thing I have a lot of photos to share with you instead. This weekend gathering was more than just a wedding day, it was a 3 day celebration of love, friendship, and family, which Sarah and Brandon have in abundance. And for a good reason, Sarah and Brandon are two of the kindest, funniest, and caring people you will meet. It was more than apparent that they had touched the lives of every person present at their wedding in such a positive way. I had so much fun documenting this special day. Enjoy the photos :)


The day started off with color wars at Forest Lake Camp. All of the guests were divided into different colored teams where they competed in events such as dodgeball and canoe racing.

Sarah and Brandon's dog is a huge part of their lives and so they made sure they chose a venue that could accommodate their furry pal along with all of their guest's dogs as well!

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 :)!
