Danica & Matthew – Historic District of Syracuse, New York

Danica and Matthew met in high school.  When I meet couples and they tell me that, I can’t help but give them a massive amount of credit.  I give them credit for falling in love young, growing together throughout the years, and making the decision to spend the rest of their lives together.  It’s a very admirable thing and also oh so lucky to have found your soul mate so soon.  These two have infectious smiles and playful  natures that is such a pleasure to be around.  Danica and Matthew decided to do their engagement session around the historic district of Syracuse, New York where we walked around, jumped, played, and took some photographs.  I’m looking forward to their wedding next year!  Congratulations to Danica and Matthew!!

Kayla & Joey – Daniele’s in New Hartford, New York

I couldn’t have asked for a better group of people to spend an entire day with.  Kayla and Joey along with their wonderful family and friends put on an incredible wedding and wild party!  Their ceremony took place at St. Anthony’s right here in Utica, New York.  Then we headed to our local train station for photos.  After that, we went to the bar that Joey and Kayla go to often to relax with some drinks, Paul’s Pub.  And to end things with taking advantage of beautiful weather, we went to Baggs square for some photos with texture.

The celebration began at Daniele’s Banquet Specialists.  I can’t stress enough how wild their reception was with cake smashing, speed painting, and a surprise live band.  I was definitely excited to document this wedding!  And I loved working with Kayla and Joey.  Congratulations to you both!!

Bethany & Rick – Crooked Lake House in Averill Park, New York

I’ve known Rick since high school.  I’ve always known him as that guy that’s constantly smiling and spreading positive energy.  Years later he approached me because he got engaged!  So I met with Bethany and Rick and not much has changed.  Rick is the same smiling, positive person that I love and better yet, he met someone just as positive and smiles just as much.  How is that even possible?!  But yes, these two are perfection and I’m so glad that they found each other.  Like the Burroughs family says, she is the ONLY girl for him, period!!

Bethany and Rick had their amazing wedding at one of my favorite venues, The Old Daley in at Crooked Lake House in Averill Park, New York.  The weather held out perfectly for a beautiful outdoor ceremony right by the lake where Bethany and Rick got married.  Followed by some photo fun around the venue, it was amazing to see so many familiar faces.  Then there was so much laughter and wild dancing at their reception!  So so very honored to be there documenting their wedding day.  Congratulations to such a fantastic couple that I know have nothing but great things in store for their future together! <3

Alex & Damian – 1819 House in Cooperstown, New York

A love for the culinary arts brought these two together. A little work place love started to happen and love sparked.  After some time of dating Damian proposed and the wedding planning began.  Alexandra and Damian have an unwavering love with a perfect balance of both tenderness and strength. I admire them for being such positive people and having infectious smiles.

It was truly an honor to be there photographing their first day of marriage.  They worked very hard on creating a very unique and breath taking wedding.  The ceremony took place at Brookwood Gardens in Cooperstown, New York.  Tucked in the beautiful foliage and gardens they even had a falcon carry the wedding bands.  We took portraits at The Otesaga Resort Hotel right by Blackbird Bay.  Then a wild party began at the 1819 House.  And by party I mean, seriously, they know how to have a good time.  They even had every guest light off chinese lanterns which made for gorgeous photographs.  I could not be any happier for these two.  Congratulations to Alex and Damian!!

Trisha & Evan – Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, New York

Trisha and Evan are so awesome together.  They light each other up by a simple look and watching their excitement getting married was an honor witness.  They are that couple that balance each other out perfectly.  Trisha is vivacious and fun loving and Evan is strong and calming.

The two of them came all the way from North Carolina to have a beautiful wedding close to their family and friends at The Turning Stone Casino and Resort.  Their ceremony took place right on the great lawn on a spectacular day.  After the wine was blended a huge party began in the ballroom with tons of laughs and great dancing.  It was definitely a night to remember!  Congratulations to two beautiful people.  I wish you the best on your new journey as husband and wife!!
