Angela: Senior Pics

On a perfect day in CNY, this gorgeous teen let me document her senior pictures. She is as beautiful as she is fun…as sweet as she is stylish. She was actually a bridesmaid in a wedding I photographed way back when, and the beauty which has emerged from this young woman in just a couple of years blows my mind. I didn’t think it was possible for her to get even lovelier…

And yet, here she is. Dazzling.

Look closely and you can see a bee between her and the flowers…she didn’t even flinch!

Ashley: Senior Pics

Where do I even begin? Ashley brought it for the shoot. Brought the fun, the style, the beauty. Hands down, I loved every single photo. A natural smiler and laugher, this senior was a pleasure to photograph!

She picked a great spot in Old Forge which I didn’t even know existed. Amid the abandoned rail cars in the woods, magic was made…

I’ll answer the question which I know you’re thinking…are those eyes real? Yes, I asked. And they are absolutely breathtaking in real life.

We ended up at Fourth Lake and the pictures kept getting better!

Expecting: Sarah & Mark

It was almost exactly four years ago when I documented Sarah & Mark’s wedding. It is no stretch to say I immediately fell in love with them. As in, as soon as we met for the first time I was amped. They are people you immediately want to be around all the time. Sarah is a comedic genius and Mark is sweet and lovable. Since that time, as we’ve turned into friends, I just can’t get enough of these two! I am so excited they are expecting, these two people are hands down amazing humans. They are kind, personable and awesome. They will be phenomenal parents.

That crush I developed when I first met them has grown into a deep respect, appreciation and love. Sarah and Mark are in my all time favorite couples list. Not that I keep one, but you know what I mean…they’re unforgettable. They are perfect.

Some favorites during our time together…

Expecting: Andrea & Codey

There are no words for this couple. Honestly. I just love them. I love everything about them.

I should start from the beginning. I shot Andrea and Codey’s wedding in 2012 and it was amazing! We even got together to do a “day after” session afterward for a little fun with her dress! Now, almost exactly two years later, my enthusiasm is through the roof with the news that these two are expecting! Andrea is as radiant as she is kind. Codey is fun and personable and just plain awesome to photograph. The dude reads my mind. Together they are a super couple…yes, as in super hero. I ADORE them and saying they will be good parents is the understatement of the year.

These two lovelies are two of the most decent humans I’ve ever had the pleasure to know. It goes without saying I was thrilled I got to document another big moment in their lives! WOOOOOOT!!

A few favorites from our time together…

Laurie & Shawn: Cooperstown, NY Wedding

Within moments of meeting Laurie you are struck by her beauty and sweetness. I knew immediately I wanted to document their wedding day, because the girl is just one of a kind. And Shawn? Well, he has this amazing combination of being the funniest person in the room but also has a caring side with this remarkable tenderness with his bride. Their wedding day was as gorgeous as them, with a backdrop that is one of the best in upstate New York. This couple is a dream to work for, and when they descended down the aisle as husband and wife amid lightly falling rose petals, it really did feel like a dream come true.

A few favorites from Laurie and Shawn’s day at The Otesaga…

Laurie and Shawn had every guest bless their handmade ring holder, it was such a beautiful thing to witness and to photograph…

It also gave me time to document both sides of the ceremony! Longer ceremonies mean I can get creative and wander! I really wanted to make sure I got both views, since the place is gorgeous from all angles.
