Wedding: EJ & Alice

This beautiful celebration took place in the Adirondacks with this sweet little family. EJ and Alice renewed their love in front of their family and close friends. And their Little Benny stole many hearts at the ceremony as he sprinted with excitement down the aisle and continued to do so as he said the darnest things throughout the reception. It was a joy to be apart of so much love!

Wedding: Haddie & Matt

These two had an intimate ceremony on the lake with family and friends. The day was beautiful and just what Matt and Haddie had envisioned. Their love for adventure, family, and each other was seen through the unique decor, location and reception! Happy honeymooning in South Africa!!!!

Wedding: Liz & Jack

There is so much to be said about these two, but I will keep it simple, Liz and Jack emote kindness and beauty. Their love and tenderness for each other was on another level, their friends and family had just as much joy and enthusiasm to be there witnessing this commitment, and the day was incredible to be apart of. Liz and Jack were able to balance classic and personal style perfectly, everything was on point from the decor, to the location, to the details. This wedding was one for the books! I was convinced that this crazy group of stompers and dancers were going to take down the barn, it was the party that never stopped and followed the couple wherever they went. Also, I need to take the time to appreciate Liz for basically DJing her own reception- and this isn't a slight on the DJ, he was great, but Liz was the life of the party, had control of the mike and wasn't afraid of dancing or signing her heart out. And Jack was a gentleman throughout, keeping up with Liz, no problem, and was of course, was smooth on his feet. My Dears, thank you for being kind and joy to work with from beginning to end. Enjoy the love!

Wedding: Kasey&Jay

To say that these two enjoyed their wedding, would be an understatement. Kasey and Jay seem to always be filled with so much love and joy, that it simply overflows wherever they go. These two are incredibly sweet and caring, crazy stylish and are not afraid to tear up the dance floor. Thank you my dears, for letting me capture this wonderful day! Enjoy the love.

Family: Seslar

Let me just begin with trying to describe how much I adore this little family! This is my second summer photographing them and the more I get to know them, the more I want to be apart of their family! They are incredibly sweet, so much fun and have a great eye for locations. This  vacation spot has become a yearly tradition, starting from when they were first together and now continuing with their two babes in tow. Steph, Lee and their boys stay at the most beautiful hidden house in the Adirondacks and I just love when I get clients that are adorable and know how to make my job easy! Enjoy the love!

Wedding: Jules&Ty

These two had a gorgeous wedding in Philadelphia, filled with sweet love, heartfelt speeches and some wicked dancing! Julia and Ty have a desire for travel and living life to the fullest. They are also extremely tenderhearted, driven and have close knit families. I wish you two all the best and thank you for allowing me to share in your beautiful day! Enjoy this sneak peek, but keep a close eye for more!

Engagement: Nicole&Josh

These two dears will be getting married this winter, so we decided to go for summer engagement photos. Nicole and Josh are two of the sweetest and hardest working people that I know. We have had to reschedule more than once, so third times the charm. Nicole is from the Adirondacks, so we kept it close to home and found some local gems. Enjoy the love.

Engagement: Kasey&Jay

So excited for these two to get married this month! Kasey and Jay are waterfall chasers, adventurers, can't sit still, passionate about the simple things in life and incredibly caring. I am so lucky to share in their beautiful day!

Wedding: Viktoryia & Brannen

This beautiful wedding was in Vermont at the Trapp Family Lodge. It was a tender and intimate wedding with family and close friends, amazing food, a beautiful view of the mountains and you know it's a good wedding when your bride lets you do whatever you want:) And when the Mother of the Groom calls you a kindred spirit, we connected because of our obsession with trees, photography and travel, amazing woman and Mother! I adore photographing these two, love their style and watching them together. They show their deep love and care for each other, with sweet, little whispers and gentle kisses and it is couples like this, that make me love my job even more! Thank you both for being wonderful through this process and I look forward to your Anniversary Session! 

Family: James, Emma, and Eden

I have had the pleasure of getting to know Emma and James, from their wedding, friends weddings and this visit I had the joy of meeting little miss Eden. She is a little ball of love and excitement and thanks to Gramma we got some big giggles out of her! This family is one of my favorites...genuine, tenderhearted and a contagious outlook on life. Enjoy the love.

Engagement: Vikki&Brannen

This session was from this past fall, we are clearly playing catch up on the blog, so enjoy some sweet color and the love.  Vikki and Brannen have a very sweet and tender relationship. I traveled a few hours out of state to photograph them, at a few of their favorite places. We started out at their adorable house, with their two fur babies and I got to learn a bit more about Vikki and Brannen. They both pay attention to detail and sweet little things, I got to hear about how their relationship started and grew into the strong bond they have today. After their house, we ventured to two nearby locations, in search of the most color we could find. We ran into sunny skies, wind, dark clouds and a bit of rain, but I think our efforts paid off.

Wedding: Carrie&Darren

This wedding was from two years ago, but was by far, one of my most unique and favorite weddings I have photographed to date. There were many firsts for me with these two and I loved them all- First time a contract came back with "Let's get weird! Love, Darren" written on it, first bride with dreads (wicked awesome dreads, wait until you see them down below, they photograph so well!), first couple to use skulls as decor and in the photos, first wedding that we actually camped out with all the guests afterwards,  first time a flower girl lost her tooth while we were photographing and the first time I had to ask someone to move a pontoon boat out of the pond so it wouldn't be in the photos.

Oh Carrie and Darren, I love them. They are two old souls, that have such a deep love and tenderness for each other. Carrie is sweet, a nature lover, cute, has a quirky sense of humor, is a deadhead, an amateur hula hooper and is quiet- but she is a crazy lady when you play the right music and dance the night away back in the woods. And Darren is like a bubbly teddy bear- he jumps up to say hello to anyone and everyone, gives big bear hugs, is crazy sweet, just adores Carrie, isn't afraid to have a good time, an avid hunter (keeps all the skulls for Carrie),   and is one of the kindest people you will ever meet. 

Carrie, Darren, many friends and family worked so hard to decorate and bring to life all of the ideas that these two had envisioned for their wedding. Carrie grew all of the flowers for the wedding bouquets and decor, collected and cleaned tons of skulls, Their location was at the North Fork Music Park and I do have to say, this whole piece of property offered so much diversity for photos and met all their wedding needs.

I love first looks. I highly suggest them to all my couples, it takes the pressure off of you two. By being able to get all of your photos taken before your ceremony, you are really just attending your wedding. These two chose to do their first look at Darren's Parent's house.

Baby Bump: Elaine&Ben

It is always fun when your clients become your friends. These two are such a joy to be around, they always make each other laugh and are so tender and romantic. It was an honor to photograph another beautiful moment in their lives. Elaine and Ben, it's a little late, but congrats on your gorgeous baby girl!
