Last Breath of Summer – Wedding Portraits

“Life was meant for a great love and a great adventure.”

Summer seemed to come late this year to the mountains and we are all a little wistful as we say goodbye to the warm evenings by the lake.  I love everything about summer in the Adirondacks; maybe when it is cold and snowy for so many months in the North, we cherish our summers a little bit more. Sabrina and Shai’s portrait session captured the essence of summer from the smell of campfires to dipping your toes into the lake on a hot day.

A few weeks ago, we had a beautiful warm evening to explore the forests and lake around their home. I have known Sabrina and Shai for years and when we moved back to upstate NY, they were some of the first to welcome us back to the area. I am so glad to call them friends and I know they are going to have so many amazing adventures together as they go through life : )

Sabrina looked stunning in her white and gold wedding dress. She managed to make climbing up a rock wall, traipsing through the woods, and paddling a canoe, in a wedding dress, look effortless and gorgeous! Her wildflower bouquet was picked from her flower garden 5 minutes before our session and was perfect : )

No matter how much time is set aside for portraits on a wedding day, there is never enough time to take all the portraits that we hope to. If you are already married or planning your wedding and would love your own beautiful adventurous portraits please contact me. I would am so excited to plan your session with you!

“My husband and I got married this past August. We were honestly a bit devastated when I realized that Julia couldn’t be our photographer. We really love her style and her talent is so obvious. After a great deal of deliberation, we were able to find another photographer who we thought was also excellent. However, as weddings go, the day was crazy, and we did not take many of the photos we had hoped for, so we called Julia back up for a post-wedding shoot! I really cannot say enough positive things about Julia! She is just so much fun to work with! She makes you feel beautiful, and that shows in every shot. She was totally happy for our two dogs to tag along and to tromp around in the woods. She takes amazing photos that really capture each couple, who they are and the love they share. She is amazing!” Sabrina & Shai
