Love Story: Caroline & Matt

I’ll admit, I am biased. I have known these two for years and had the joy of working alongside Caroline — in another lifetime — when we were one-man-band reporters in the broadcasting biz. Given our history, I can unequivocally say she is one of the best humans I know. She always has a smile on her face, her warmth takes over in every space she is in. Both Caroline and Matt are truly wonderful people in every way, so I literally was jumping up and down when I got the call that they were getting married. I couldn’t be more excited for them, their wedding, or their future, because together they are just unstoppable.

A few favorites during our fun and relaxed engagement shoot at this unique place!

I was beyond excited to shoot engagement photos already but when I arrived and there was perfect light? Blown away. It was just ridiculous…

Caroline is the sweetest and has most beautiful soul…

We definitely had to incorporate the great elements at Clark’s Elioak Farm, which features storybook characters around its grounds. It was the perfect backdrop for this unique and fun loving couple!

Caroline and Matt, I absolutely adore you. Thank you a million times over for choosing me to document your incredible love!

Ashleigh & Mike: MKJ Farms Wedding

When you have a couple as fun and as lovely as these two, then you add the gorgeous backdrop of  MKJ Farm, that’s always a recipe for a gorgeous wedding!

With the fall colors looking incredible, the impeccable style of Ashleigh and Mike was showcased perfectly. I had the honor of documenting their loving day, which was filled with a range of beautiful emotions from their V.I.P.s. Everyone treated me like family (but also ignored me so I could get great candids, ha ha) so I loved the documentary style of their day!

A few favorites…

Just a couple of years ago I almost never promoted getting a second shooter, but when you have a great one, that changes things! Second shooter Peter with his balcony shot as the bride and her father walk down the aisle and I’m up front poised like a ninja…

Caitlin & Josh: Sennett Fire House Wedding

I had the honor of photographing a beautiful wedding with a couple who is as delightful as can be! Caitlin and Josh are two genuinely enthusiastic people who poured their energy into the personal details of their day. The bride thought of everything, with soft pastel hues as her base colors, then pearls, twine and burlap highlighting the day. The groom even made the wooden wedding arch! Unbelievable!

But as pretty as their D.I.Y. details were, I loved them as a couple. One of my favorite moments was when it started raining and we were just starting pictures outside, the bride just smiled and said, “Actually I think the rain feels good right now!” And there you have it. Nothing can keep these two from smiling and adoring each other. Nothing could keep them from having a blast on their wedding day. It is a lesson for all of us, when the clouds roll in, let the stress roll away.

A few favorites…

A couple of last minute touches, the quiet moments before the ceremony…

Since the ceremony was at a private residence, I got to wander inside the house and see how the families were progressing.

This is why I love documentary photography!

Josh doesn’t stop smiling so he is basically every photographers’ dream come true!

Love Story: Ashley & Justin

Ashley and Justin are a dream couple: playful, beautiful and up for anything! We wandered around some of my favorite spots in the Syracuse area in some incredible light. With every shot, every outfit and every location change, I found myself just loving the way these two interact more and more…
