Lake Champlain was smooth as glass and the mountains were every shade of blue across the waters for Kelly and Ryans summer engagement session this June! The rains held off until the last few minutes but the pictures under the umbrella are some of my favorites from they session!
he fine river dust rose and fell with each step we took as we made our way down the path through the soft ferns along the bank or the river. The sun was streaming through the leaves as it sunk lower in the evening sky the night of their engagement session. I was so glad that Stevie and Logan were up for a small adventure before we headed to the second location we had planned for their engagement session in upstate NY.
We were gripping our seats in the truck, balancing camera gear and trying to keep their change of clothes from sliding off our laps, while laughing the whole way up Gore Mountain. After climbing out the truck and taking in the stunning views of the Adirondacks, Tim pointed to the peak to our left where in -10° weather with winds swirling, Tim proposed to Maggie during one of their ski trips. I loved looking over to that peak during their engagement session at Gore Mountain, and thinking of the joy and excitement that they both must have been feeling at that moment.
Lauren loved the photographs from one of my previous session in the Catskill Mountains but we decided that was a little too far to travel! We decided on a location in Essex that I have been wanting to photograph at for a year now. I was so glad they were up for trying something new with me! I think their adventurous spirit paid off big time, because I just LOVE their photographs : )
