2017 Engagements

Ampersand Bay Resort | Ryan and Matt's Engagement

Ampersand Bay Resort | Ryan and Matt's Engagement

Ryan and Matt found me online, but I knew that talking to them made me realize that they needed to be my clients because they are both silly and ready to party, but indulge in the quiet romantic moments when they get the chance. Of course they were a bit shy at first, and it was a bit chilly out by the water, but as soon as they began being silly and laughing and embracing to stay warm, I couldn't get them to stop smiling, not that I wanted to anyway :-). They just get better and better as the day went on, and my favorite moments from this session are ALL of the in-between moments. I can't WAIT for their day!

Woods Hollow Nature Preserve | Ali and Josh's Engagement

Woods Hollow Nature Preserve | Ali and Josh's Engagement

The theme of this Engagement session? Laughs, giggles, silliness ALL DAY LONG. Exactly what it was supposed to be, and my heart is so full from this session! I can't lie, it wasn't a perfectly cloudy day with no rain, it definitely rained, and they were definitely up for the adventure in this magical nature preserve. Ali and Josh were not nervous at all, if anything, they were excited, and they were willing to do whatever I wanted with a few requests - typically what my creative heart loves to hear!

NYC Central Park Engagement | Peter and Jason

NYC Central Park Engagement | Peter and Jason

I can't lie, it was a rainy Sunday in the middle of the city and there was no evidence of it stopping anytime soon! Fortunately, these two were up for the adventure as the rain sometimes took some moments to waiver in its strength and allow us to be less wet. Might I add that the penguin umbrella was not planned? It was essentially the perfect prop for the day, and we played in the rain. regardless of where we decided to take photos, things were quiet, allowing this hard working hyper focused couple to really enjoy their time with each other.

Indian Ladder Farms Engagement | Alexis and Brian

Indian Ladder Farms Engagement | Alexis and Brian

Alexis and Brian are super cool and super chill and completely down to earth people. Brian was just a bit nervous (sorry man! putting you on the spot!) but all in all, he warmed up and started having a bit of fun with the session. These two work hard and passionately in their careers, both helping people in need, whether its the public, or those who are having issues with their beloved fur babies. I am sensing a theme of my clients as a criteria with working with me: MUST BE COMPASSIONATE PEOPLE. Check out their photos :-)

Yaddo Gardens Engagement | Angela + Dan

I first met Angela and Dan at the Century House Wedding Show and they won my free Engagement Session! They were nervous, as are most couples when they have to be in fornt of the camera, but once they warmed up a little and were able to be a little bit open with each other. It turned out spectacular.

Thatcher Park Engagement | Erika and Alex

Thatcher Park Engagement | Erika and Alex

Compassion for others runs through the blood of these two, and when two kind hearts come together, it becomes so apparent that they carry their compassion through into their relationship. Although they live in NYC now, I can't wait for their Wedding! There were a lot of laughs and a lot of conversations that were had that might very well be embarrassing (but I couldn't hear it, i swear!). I don't know what they are like apart, but together they are calm and collected, hearts of ease and comfort. Let me show you what we made that day!

Yaddo Gardens | Briana + Tom's Engagement Session

These two love birds are getting married next year and I couldn't be more excited! They met me at a previous client's wedding and apparently they liked me ;) These two are funny, and they both have their own shy moments. These moments are always so fun to exploit because it brings out the giggles in each other. Tom, with his dad jokes and Briana with her adventurous attitude are just perfect for each other. I can't wait for their big day!

Averill Park NY | Meghan and Bill's Engagement Session

Meghan and Bill live in their home here in West Sand Lake, and where better place to take some Engagement Photos than on their deck overlooking the Lake. Oh of course since we were so close we had to take advantage of the town beach :-) Lighting was great and perfect, it was an easy going day with a lot of laughs, and lots of smiles. I can't wait for their wedding next year!

Central Park Schenectady NY | Kelly + Tony's Engagement

Central Park Schenectady NY | Kelly + Tony's Engagement

Kelly and Tony are super fun and totally up for anything I wanted to create for them (which are always my favorite words!) They chose Schenectady because this was a place of childhood memories that is rarely visited now. So I took them around the rose garden just to spring up some memories and to re acquaint them with the friendly atmosphere and the abundance of life. I can't wait for their wedding in 2018!

Troy NY Engagement | Michelle and Gina

Troy NY Engagement | Michelle and Gina

Michelle and Gina are what most comfortable couples are like, easy going and don't take anything too seriously when it comes to making each other laugh. Ironically, they had just had a small argument prior to them being at the engagement session, which of course I took the oppertunity to start making it awkward. Those who have ever been in relationships know that the last thing you want to do when you're angry at your significant other is be close to them at all. Well, when you're with me, and you just had an argument, I'm dumping you right into the fray, Kisses, snuggles, and awkward stares galore. The thing I admire most about this couple is their honesty to each other, and their unapologetic love for each other.

Yaddo Gardens Engagement | Alice and Sal

Yaddo Gardens Engagement | Alice and Sal

Alice and Sal are getting married soon and I can not WAIT for their big day at Longfellows. Alice is a smart and sweet woman who will tell you what is on her mind, and Sal is a soft hearted witty man who cares deeply and passionately. We toured the grounds of Yaddo and it was without a doubt A HOT DAY. These two walked with me like a champ, and they just wanted to be with each other every moment of it. Its funny to see couples because they all share the same few traits that I notice, its the ease at which they fall into each other's arms as they melt everything else away.

Stephanie and Todd are both working in fields that are focused on the environment and practices that aims to be less detrimental to our mother earth. One a farm girl who goes back to the roots of food and its role it plays on farms with the rest of the earth, and the other a boy who works for a new environmentally conscious material that has the potential to be used for anything and is easily disposable without impacting the earth.

BTW, did I ever tell you that I've always wanted to be on a farm? It is literally one of my favorite things to be on. I love the grand lush fields and the attention seeking animals and the hardwork and the wood structures. Its BEYOND cute. We got to explore a little more than what you would normally get to see so check out their photos ;-)

Saratoga National Historic Park Engagement | Erica + Ben

Saratoga National Historic Park Engagement | Erica + Ben

Erica and Ben are quite the couple, they both love to laugh and are both easy with each other. They may have moments where they will look at each other funny, probably for one more than the other, but they don't take each other too seriously when it comes to having fun and spending time together. When it comes down to it, their strengths come out in full force and things get done. When they work hard, they also play hard. Check out the shenanigans of the day!

Being able to be comfortable with each other is part of being in a relationship, and Mike and Mat are more than just comfortable being around each other but definitely comfortable in their own skins in public.

Wing's Castle Engagement | Kim and Rick

Wing's Castle Engagement | Kim and Rick

Kim and Rick are so sweet to each other, This soft spoken and chivalrous man and this powerful assertive woman are nothing but kind to each other, and they can't help but smile at each other and with each other. I could barely hear their conversations as I guided them into positions and encouraging them to continue to talk to each other, but I could tell it was just full of love, or at least full of silly mouth noises. Wings Castle was the perfect location for their medieval looks, it was as if it was meant just for them.

LIC Landing + Astoria Park Engagement | Anna and Kirstie

LIC Landing + Astoria Park Engagement | Anna and Kirstie

Anna and Kirstie are private people, which for more intimate photos can be a small challenge, but once Anna was giving a million kisses and warming Kirstie up, it was game time and love just shown through. We took a couple of photos within the apartment that they are leaving for Philadelphia with their dog and cat. Excuse the excessive animal photos. We moved through Astoria Park and eventually ended up at LIC Landing for a beautiful skyline. Smart, easy going, and dedicated, they would go the extra mile for the other in a heartbeat.
