Momma & Me: Messer Boys

Boys, boys, boys. Not a dull moment within this adventure session! This sweet and patient momma has her hands full of dirt, love and food (because be honest, what boy ever stops eating?!) We enjoyed a hike through woods, berries, peonies, butterflies, swimming in the river and listening to their imaginations run wild.

Family: Layton

Some of my favs, started out clients (my yosemite couple) and are now dear dear dear friends.
Although, this is long overdue,  here are some sweet moments of this wonderful family.

Wedding: Emily & Nick

Young Love. These two are the sweetest! It was an honor to share in such a beautiful day and everything was just lovely. Nick surprised Emily with an amazing, European honeymoon- he was such a thoughtful and very good planner! These two are incredibly selfless, which was continually seen and heard throughout their wedding day and they truly appreciate the important things in life. Wishing you all the best you two!

Engagement: Emily & Nick

These two sweethearts braved the zero degree weather, but were rewarded with some sweet light, tender moments and a gorgeous day! 

Wedding: Nicole & Josh

I always find that you truly know the character of the bride and groom, when the toasts made in their honor are all the same- they are sweet, kind, tenderhearted and their love is pure. This is true of Josh and Nicole. I knew Nicole from high school and she was consistently kind, caring and hard working and very deserving of only the sweetest man. From what I have seen through getting to know Josh, he qualifies. Both of their Mommas deserve recognition for raising such incredible people, it was an honor to share in such love amongst friends and family! Here is a sneak peek of the sweetest couple, on the coldest day, filled with so much love and joy!

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.
