From the moment the first rays of sunlight appeared over the mountains on June 9th, it was a beautiful day in the Adirondacks. When I first met Cara and Andy I saw how much they respect and love one another. I am truly thankful to serve and photograph couples that are truly meant to walk through this life together and Cara and Andy epitomize that relationship. You just want to be around them, and I think you can see in their photographs that they literally never stoped smiling the WHOLE day.

When winter and spring collide it is pure magic in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York. With soft warm breezes blowing through the valleys, and cool smooth ice still reflecting the blue skies above it is enough to take your breath away. This isn’t the beginning of their love story though…
Those were the words used when Lindsay told me what she wanted the feel of her wedding day to be. If I could wish one thing for my brides it would be for their day to be filled to the brim with those feelings! Lindsay and Mike’s winter Adirondack elopement at the Whiteface Lodge in Lake Placid is a wedding post you have to check out!
It is the day before you say I-do… guests are arriving, your wedding dress is hanging in the closet freshly steamed and your vows are almost perfected. The day before your wedding can be a blur of last minute preparations, more hugs than you can count from friends and family, and your wedding rehearsal and dinner!
We were standing under the shade of weeping willow tree waiting for his bride to make her way down the path. I could feel the anticipation in the warm summer air, hands fidgeting with his jacket as we waited, and then we heard the sound of tires approaching; it was almost time to see his bride, love, and best friend.
I saw on the calendar today that February is considered the last month of Winter. With Valentine’s day, Groundhog day and only 28 days long, I feel like spring is just around the corner. This may be wishful thinking on my part… but I love dreaming about the soft pops of spring colors with the deep greens of the mountain forests that turn purple and blue in the late evening light of spring on a frosty winter night.
The Adirondacks sparkle in the winter with a covering of white crisp snow and there is a quiet that envelopes the woods. Kristina and Kevin’s winter wedding at the Whiteface Lodge in Lake Placid sparkled like the snow in the early evening sun. Their winter wedding was beautiful and make sure you check out the pictures from their first dance!
I first met Allison and her mom at a sweet little ice-cream shop on a warm summer day in the Adirondacks. If I could meet all of my brides at an ice cream shop that would be heaven. She was so excited to talk about the wedding they were planning in her hometown and the reception that would take place at the Adirondack Woodcraft Camps.
When I met Lauren in her hotel room on the morning of her wedding, she seemed to have tucked away any stress and nerves she may have had into a little box and put it away for the day. Lauren was all smiles as the back of her sweet dress was laced and her white veil put in place. To say she looked angelic is an understatement : )
