Haley & Mike – Vernon Downs in Vernon, New York

Haley and Mike are so much fun and have a fantastic sense of humor.  They are certainly that couple that you want to hang out with because memories are bound to be made.  It was fun watching the two get married as Mike had a huge smile on his face and Haley was tearing up with emotions of joy.  The two had a beautiful ceremony at the church of St. John in Rome, New York.  Then our photo adventure began as we went to Vogel Park, The Delta Lake Yacht Club, and then ended at the track at Vernon Downs.  There they ate, drank, danced, and celebrated well!  I could not be any happier for these two.  Congratulations to Haley and Mike for marrying your soulmates!!!

The Palmer Family Session

I try to avoid family and maternity sessions during wedding/engagement season but I couldn’t say no to a very close friend of mine that I grew up with.  Her sister, Joanne just had her second child, Ela and wanted a family session.  I photographed Joanne and Aaron’s first kid, Lidia years ago so I just had to see how much she’s grown up, which is a lot!  Time flys!  So I drove to their family home where we played in the backyard and took some photos.  It was a joy and refreshing to shoot a family session and play with Ela and Lidia and see how happy Joanne and Aaron are to be a family! :)

Savanna & Justin – Dibbles Inn in Vernon, New York

I actually went to high school with Savanna and I always knew her as sweet, gentle, and sophisticated.  When she told me that she got engaged, I was so excited to meet the love of her life, Justin.  They actually won an engagement session by entering a contest of telling their love story.  Savanna always dreamt of a romantic hot air ballooon ride proposal.  After four years of sharing giggles and happiness together, Justin took Savanna to Highland Forest in Fabius.  There they strolled into a parking lot in an open field with a trailer advertised for “Above All Balloon Rides”.  While floating high above the trees Justin proposed and Savanna’s dream came true.

As if that wasn’t romantic enough?  Justin is actually a writer.  And his vows were so beautiful that I cried.  The power in his words and even the way he presented them were amazing.  Those were definitely vows that I will never forget!  Savanna and Justin had a stunning outdoor ceremony at Dibbles Inn and danced the night away with their closest friends and family.  I could not be an happier for Savanna and Justin.  I’m so excited for their new journey together as a married couple and the happy moments that they will create.  Congratulations to you both!!!

Kristina & Robert – Wolf Oak Acres in Oneida, New York

I have known Kristina for years and she has always been such a vibrant and positive person.  When I met Kristina and Robert for their wedding consultation, it was clear that vibrancy and positivity doubled when Krissy was with Robert.  Something that I didn’t even think possible!  So I was definitely looking forward to their wedding and photographing them as they embark on their lives together as a married couple.  Kristina and Robert got married at Wolf Oak Acres in Oneida, New York.  The venue is beautiful and enormous.  So enormous that they had their ceremony right by the venue’s pond on a gorgeous day.  Then afterwards they drank, ate, and celebrated in the newly built barn.  And what better way to end a wedding with a theatrical fireworks show?  It was a definitely a day to be remembered.  Congratulations to Krissy and Robert!!!

Mickenzie & Mark – Tug Hill Vineyards in Lowville, New York

For Mickenzie, marriage was never a priority.  So when her family encouraged her to date and then she met Mark, Mickenzie just knew that he was the one and marriage was going to happen.  Meeting these two have been a joy.  They have a fantastic sense of humor and adore each other dearly.  Mickenzie being the talented graphic designer that she is designed and planned her and Mark’s wedding beautifully.  From the choice of reds and oranges to DIYing a ceremony area in the woods, I was incredibly excited to photograph their wedding.

They had a ceremony tucked in the woods in Lowville, New York on a perfect sunny day.  They even had their dog Mya walk down the isle!  Then we went driving around the Lowville area for cool spots to take photos.  So I have to thank them for making the photography portion of their day such a great collaboration!  We then headed to the beautiful Tug Hill Vineyards where their family and friends had breakfast for dinner and enjoyed some dancing!  It was an incredible day and I am so happy for Mickenzie and Mark on their new journey together.  Congratulations!!!
