Ahhhh this sweet couple! Amy and Joe were such a breath of fresh air. They are easy going and their bond is so endearing to watch. They currently live in the city but came to Syracuse to run a half marathon. So we decided to meet up and do a little engagement session at Green Lakes State Park in Fayetteville, New York. It was awesome getting to know them. They love the outdoors, camping, and making breakfast together. We had a few laughs about how much Joe loves his Jeep and even ended up taking some photos with it. Coincidentally, they became some of my favorite photos. I’m so happy for all the wonderful events ahead of them. Congratulations on your engagement, Amy and Joe! Wedding is next!

They are both so sweet and excited to tie the knot. So here’s our engagement session at Onondaga Park where we had tons of fun taking photos and getting to know each other better. <3 you guys! Congratulations to, Kim and Steve!!!

Melissa and Kevin! These two I just so adore!! I went to the Westchester area to meet Melissa and Kevin for the first time. We’ve been in touch over the phone and I knew through that communication that we’d be hanging like homies right away. Next thing I know, their front door opens to Melissa’s huge smile and two rambunctious pups. Exactly what I imagined! They are down to Earth, have a fantastic sense of humor, and are getting married in less than 2 weeks now! Yup, they are my very last wedding of the season and I can’t think of better people to close it out with!

Melissa and Kevin took me to a friend’s property in Yorktown Heights for their engagement photos. It was a Fall wonderland as their area actually had Fall leaves unlike central New York. With Melissa and Kevin’s sweetness and the beauty all around, the engagement session was smooth sailing and a great intro to their wedding photos to come. See you both soon and congratulation on your engagement, Melissa and Kevin!

It was such a joy to meet Katie and Mitch and even their newborn son, Noah! They met me at Chittenango Falls in Cazenovia, New York for their engagement session/family session. It baffles my mind how sometimes I meet people and it’s like I’ve known them all my lives. I met Katie and Mitch and I instantly felt like we’ve hung out a million times watching movies and shared meals together. I like that a lot! It’s a good feeling! So we chatted and got to know each other as we explored Chittenango Falls Park. It was a splendid afternoon spent with wonderful people that warmed my heart. I’m very excited for these two. Congratulations to Katie and Mitch!!!

Where do I even begin with Kate and Kris? They are the sweetest people you will encounter. They both have a way of making you feel at ease and like an instant friend. I met Kate at first and she told me about how they were planning a small ceremony with just a few family members and friends. And afterwards, a reception with more friends and family. I completely related to how they wanted to approach their wedding day because I’m not big on being the center of attention either! I loved the idea of an intimate ceremony and party after. And what is so funny is that after their ceremony at the Fort Schyuler Club, I quickly realized how many people love Kate and Kris because the attendance number for their reception was huge!

When I met Kris, it was like seeing Kate become whole. Not that she’s not beautiful and wonderful independently, just that he created so much joy for her and her for him. They complimented each other so well and they clearly have been ready for married life. They make a perfect team. Seeing his reaction to Kate walk down the isle and his joy after being pronounced husband and wife said it all. This is a great love that is everlasting.

We took photos around the downtown Utica area which meant a lot to me since this city is my home. Went went to the Utica Public Library, Munson Williams Proctor Arts Institute, and the Utica Train station for photos. And at the Radisson Hotel, all their guests started to arrive to witness some of the funniest speeches and fun filled dancing on the dance floor. I loved the huge party just as much as I loved the intimate ceremony. Seeing Kate and Kris enjoy their wedding day made me so happy and I know nothing but wonderful things are in store for their future. Congratulations Kate and Kris!
