“As we grow older together, as we continue to change with age, there is one thing that will never change…I will always keep falling in love with you.” – K. Clodfelder
Walking into the Ausable Club, on the morning of Molly and Ryan’s wedding day, you could almost reach out and touch the history of the beautiful lodge that hung heavy in the air. The history of lodge holds a special place in Molly’s heart which made the day even more meaningful. Both Molly’s grandparents and parents celebrated their marriages by spending their Honeymoon at the Ausable Club, which is so special!
Inside the front door, what caught my eye in a room of beautiful details, were the simple black and white images in silver frames of her mother, grandmother and great grandmother’s wedding portraits. I believe we take photographs on wedding days so that the joy and love that was felt during the big moments and all the ones in-between, can be held onto for years and generations to come.
Molly and Ryan’s wedding, in the heart of the mountains, was classic, romantic and beautiful though out the entire day. I am so glad that Molly and Ryan decided to do a first look on their wedding day. Molly looked absolutely stunning and I am pretty sure Ryan’s eyes doubled in size when he saw her float down the cabin steps. Doing a first look allowed time for us to take some amazing pictures before their ceremony.
When we planned their wedding day timeline we made sure to set aside time before the ceremony to drive down to the Boathouse on the Lower Ausable Lake nestled between the mountains. We had beautiful weather and I am so glad that Molly and Ryan were up for an adventure before they said their vows overlooking Giant Mountain.
Every detail of the day was thought through by Molly, Ryan and their families to makes sure that their closest friends and family enjoyed the day as much they did. Their wedding celebration was magical from the cocktails, to the breathtaking flowers, to the heartfelt speeches and first dance with the perfect dip at the end, was classically beautiful, joyful and heartfelt through and through. Thank you for inviting me into your wedding day and allowing me to capture it for you, Molly and Ryan : )

“We booked Julia for our Adirondack wedding and she honestly blew us away. From the start, she was organized and responsive to all our questions. On the day of, Julia and her assistant Kevin arrived and got to work without any instruction from me. We decided to add on extra time and I am so glad we did – we have such an incredible variety of couple portraits at different locations. Julia is so encouraging and positive, she makes you feel like a super model – but she also gives everyone gentle suggestions of where to put their hands or what stance to be in so that everyone looked perfect. Everyone in my family raved about how wonderful she was, and her assistant Kevin was the perfect addition as he was non-intrusive and got some great shots at different angles. The final edited photographs are stunning – she captured every moment and detail perfectly. Her editing style is to enhance the natural look, so nothing is overly saturated or fake looking. Julia was reasonably priced and I would say she was overall the best of all our wedding vendors because from start to finish she was professional, helpful, courteous, and the final photos surpassed our expectations. I would highly encourage you to schedule a phone call with her to talk through your wedding details and then book her asap!” – Molly & Ryan
