Engagement Session at Hayloft on the Arch, Vernon Center, NY ♥ Lauren + Jeff

There’s nothing like a little bit of love to warm you up during a Central New York Winter! We were honored when we were asked to work with local photographer Jeff Anderton and his beautiful fiancée Lauren, for their wedding at the Hayloft on the Arch.  And even more excited when they requested a winter time E-Session right there at the the same venue.  Lauren and Jeff both brought lots of love and energy with them to the session, and we enjoyed getting some really lovely shots of them inside the barn. After taking a few shots of his own, Jeff brought along his guitar and played some beautiful music for his beloved, while she listened intently atop the rustic bar! How cute are they? With a little help from lighting specialist Carl Naples, of DJ by Design, we were able to create a beautiful backdrop for some of their indoor portraits. After a break, and a yummy dinner at the Turning Stone, we came back for a night shot outside the barn. As beautiful as it is in winter with a nice coating of snow across the grounds, we are really looking forward to seeing it decorated for them in the fall, with the beautiful bride and groom and all of their friends and family! Can’t wait for the wedding! Thank you, Jeff + Lauren, for coming out to play with us in the freezing cold, joining us for dinner, and being such good sports -we had a blast! Le gach dea-ghuí,(With all good wishes) Colleen & Greg…

Wedding at Pratt’s Falls and Craftsman Inn ♥ Michele + Brad

A beautiful day was carefully planned for the wedding of Michele and Brad, and it turned out just perfect! Our first adventure with this fun couple happened back in January, when we met for their E-Session in Franklin Park. Such a fun session, that ended with us at a coffee shop! Colleen will never be heard complaining about that! Revisit their session by clicking here. With a shortage of snow, and mild temperatures for their engagement portraits, we knew we would be lucky on their wedding day as well! It was a warm summer day, and while there was some threat of rain, it stayed away for these two love birds. We started out with Michele at the Craftsman Inn, where she was accompanied by her Mom and Maid of Honor, Jessica. They helped her slip into the most perfect of wedding gowns, which was no doubt made especially for Michele! She looked absolutely stunning! Meanwhile, Greg met up with the Groom and his guys for a few candid photos at the Gorham Brothers Music, owned and operated by the Groom along with his two brothers. They enjoyed a few laughs and some goofy moments before heading to Pratt’s Falls for the ceremony. Michele and Jessica arrived to Pratt’s Falls first, and patiently awaited the arrival of Brad and Best Man, Keith. Before long, her husband-to-be approached the big tree she waited behind, shielded by her yellow paper umbrella. The couple shared their first glimpse of each other dressed to become husband and wife. After a few happy tears, and…

Caitlin + Nate = Engaged | Engagement Photography in Lake Pleasant Adirondacks NY

We were excited from the moment that Caitlin mentioned the idea of a woodsy, outdoor engagement session with her and Nate! Greg being the outdoors-man, and Colleen loving to try unique and new things, it was guaranteed that we would enjoy getting the opportunity to travel outside of Central New York, and head up to the Adirondacks! Our original plans got changed due to a soggy morning, but the Red Pines Bed & Breakfast in Lake Pleasant, NY worked out as an even better alternative! A natural, and secluded haven for travelers, turned out to be the perfect spot for the two of them. Caitlin and Nate had some concerns about being nervous and needing coaching during their session, however, it did not take us long to find out that they didn’t give themselves enough credit! They seemed very comfortable in their element, doing the things that they enjoy most, and their love for one another was a cinch to capture after only a few minutes. As often as possible, we bring the sunshine along with us, and today was no exception. Overcast skies turned sunny and bright only a short while after we unloaded our gear. It made for some beautiful images of the sky while they took the boat out on the lake. Our thanks to both of you for “dragging” us out of Syracuse for a fun adventure, and to your family for chauffeuring us around in the boat to get those lake photos! We really enjoyed the session, and can’t wait for the big wedding day!…

Adirondacks Wedding at Camp Fowler in Speculator & Lake Pleasant ♥ Caitlin + Nate » Solas StudiosJune 20, 2013 - 1:02 am

[…] Caitlin and Nate’s big day was one we were especially looking forward to this year! Their selection of an Adirondack venue for their wedding was so full of potential, that we could hardly wait to see what it looked like, decorated with love! What a fantastic place to have a wedding, nestled in the quiet woods, using the natural beauty as your backdrop! We met up with the couple in June, for their E Session, not far from where they exchanged vows in the town of Speculator, NY. If you haven’t already, see their Engagement Photos here. […]
