We met Brittany and Brett at their home in Keene, and was welcomed by a flock of chickens and their dog Sugar! If we ever get another dog I am totally stealing the name Sugar! So cute! We followed them up a winding dirt road to Brett’s families home that sits on the side of the mountain over looking the valley. The view was absolutely stunning to say the least! Read more…
I am so glad that Lauren and Chris made the time in their incredible busy schedules to have their family photography session with me! It can be so hard to find the time especially when we all have such busy schedules and lives! The Saugerties Lighthouse is a gorgeous location and we made the most of the beautiful early morning light to capture some beautiful photographs!
The day we shot this styled shoot there was a mist still hanging in the damp air of the Adirondacks that almost gave you a sense of time when the Great Camps were being built. I love the smell of the Adirondacks, it is earthy and rustic but at the same time there is a hushed elegance that floats in the air.
“Be strong, be fearless, be beautiful. And believe that anything is possible when you have the right people there to support you.” – I think Misty Copeland got it right when she said this and I think it describes this styled shoot so well!
I was so honored to photograph Becca’s maternity session on a beautiful little pond outside of Saranac Lake, NY. We had a great time just enjoying the beautiful light and taking some amazing photographs. Some of my favorite photographs from the session are the ones where she standing on the dock with beautiful light surrounding her.
I met Danielle and David for the first time when they strolled into the Hotel VT lobby. Danielle was fresh from having her hair and makeup done, which looked beautiful. They had spent time in Burlington, VT on vacation in the past and knew that they wanted to return to elope in a place they enjoyed together. Hotel Vermont was the perfect location. I loved that they wanted to get ready together and how sweet David was putting Danielle’s shoes on for her! Theses two melted my heart.
There is one piece of advice that I can give for planning a wedding: look beyond the day of your wedding and consider the memories that will last a lifetime. All of the planning you do for the day of your wedding is going to ensure that it will be amazing and full of emotion. The days, weeks, months and years that follow are grounded in your commitment to each other through the good and bad.
I spoke with Brittany and Jon a couple weeks before their wedding day to check in with them and they told me they had their fingers crossed for snow. I was a little surprised by this because I thought they would be wishing for warm spring weather! I was a little concerned their dream might not come true given the unpredictable nature of March but I kept an eye on the weather and hoped the snow would last until their big day!
Decisions, decisions and more decisions! It can feel like you have a million and a half decisions to make leading up to your wedding day. Choosing the “getting ready” location can often take a back seat to deciding on the band, decor, flowers and basically everything else. I encourage you to take a little bit of time […]
Alright so besides maybe tasting the cake, deciding on your wedding dress is probably one of the most fun filled parts of planning your wedding. Yes, it can be stressful at times and you may wonder if you are ever going to find the prefect dress, but it is still SO much fun. Photographing weddings gives me […]
