When Spenser and I got married, I didn’t even know where to begin in planning our wedding day timeline. It was totally overwhelming to try and guess at how much time we needed for each part of the day! How early should I put my dress on? How long would our ceremony be? How much […]

Creating Your Wedding Day Timeline

October 30, 2017

Ashley and Alex’s wedding was one beautiful light-filled love fest! These two are from Pennsylvania, but they planned a beautiful wine country destination wedding in the Finger Lakes. Ashley (ever the gracious hostess, from what I’m told), set up a Facebook group for guests in the months leading up to the wedding, with details about […]

Ashley & Alex | Inn on the Lake Wedding

October 16, 2017

When I drove up to Brianne’s family property in Orangeville, New York, I found Tommy standing in the road in the late summer sunlight, looking out over the golden hills, the neighboring Christmas tree farm, and and the long road that leads to their little corner of the world. Tommy pointed me in the right […]

Brianne & Tommy | Forest Engagement Session

October 16, 2017

I met Meaghan and Brian last fall, when I photographed their gorgeous engagement session on the shores of Skaneateles Lake. Their story started in Skaneateles, with a first date at the Skaneateles Bakery, and blossomed into a beautiful love complete with a proposal on the water and fireworks over the lake. It seems only natural […]

Meaghan & Brian | Anyela’s Vineyards Wedding

August 27, 2017

I learned so many things at Gianna and Erdem’s beautiful wedding – that bonfires are the absolute best way to end a wedding reception, that Turkish people are waaaay better dancers than the rest of us, and that these two have a one-in-a-million kind of love. They way they looked at each other as Gianna […]

Gianna & Erdem | Becker Farms Wedding

August 23, 2017

Marcie and Dave took a major trip down memory lane for their engagement session. These two met at Hobart and William Smith in Geneva, NY, and although they now live in Boston, they’re coming back to where it all started to take the next big step and get hitched! After touring the spectacular North Farm […]

Marcie + Dave | Geneva, NY Engagement Session

July 19, 2017

Katie and Mike’s wedding was a dream to shoot! From their engagement session last fall to the final dance of the night, they were the sweetest, most lovely people to work with. I find it unsurprising that Katie is a kindergarten teacher – she is one of the most effusive, joyful people I’ve ever met […]

Katie + Mike | The Wadsworth Homestead

June 27, 2017

You’re engaged! The ring’s officially on your finger, you have a wedding season (if not a solid date) picked out, your eyes are glued to Pinterest for about 80% of the day, and you’re ready to think about engagement photos! (P.S. if you’re undecided about whether to make time for an engagement session, head on over to […]

When Should We Schedule Our Engagement Session?

February 20, 2017

Every couple wants amazing wedding photos. A start to finish documentary of your wedding day, told in fine art images, is almost as much of a requirement these days as an officiant or a reception venue! The engagement session, though, remains a bit of a question for some couples. Why do an engagement session? Can you fit […]

5 Reasons Not to Skip the Engagement Session

February 7, 2017

This post is a little late, since we are already rocketing our way into 2017 and all of the new adventures that are to come, but I would be remiss if I didn’t share some of the highlights of this past year! From a personal perspective, 2016 was definitely one for the memory books – […]
