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.
There are two things that never cease to amaze me; the stunning Adirondack mountains and how amazing and sweet my couples are. Cassandra reached out to me about photographing her wedding in the Hudson Valley this summer and I could not be more excited to be working with them. These two are so down to earth and fun, their wedding day is going to be a dream! Click the Image above to see more!
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!
A stunning heartfelt engagement session at Reber Rock farm nestled in the Champlain Valley of upstate NY. This session is full of beauty, flowers, horses and smiles – everything I love! I am so thrilled to be photographing Chad and Gwen’s wedding in August at their new home!
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.
Liz and Eric love spending long weekends in the Adirondacks hiking, and exploring the high peaks together, so it was only natural that they would decide to have their wedding day celebration in the Adirondacks!
He stood beside her, as they waited behind the thick wood door of The Whiteface Lodge. Inside the excited cheers of friends and family echoed through the room as their grandparents entered the reception. The band announced their families, and then the last of their wedding party danced into the Whispering Pines to wild applause. They were next, his beautiful bride, his wife and best friend, by his side. “And now for their first appearance as Mr. and Mrs. Laverty…” echoed through the grand lodge, and they stepped through the doorway, hand-in-hand and side-by-side, as they would be for years to come…
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 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 damp earth after a thunderstorm to dipping your toes into the lake on a hot day.
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 : )
