Ithaca Engagement Session, Cornell Plantations and Myers Park ♥ Laura & Patrick

Engagement Sessions are our absolute favorite, and Laura and Patrick’s session in Ithaca was no exception! It was a warm and sunny autumn evening and the beautiful flower gardens at the Cornell Plantations gave us the perfect pops of color to spice up their portraits.   After some fun and romantic portraits at the plantations, we headed over to nearby Myers Park to get some sunset portraits by the lighthouse. The sky gave us a stunning array of colors to use as the backdrop for some silhouettes facing the west side of the fantastic Cayuga Lake. It was an absolutely awesome little adventure with you, Laura and Patrick! Thank you for tagging along with us, and making it a very enjoyable engagement session and sunset for us! We look forward to the wedding next year! Congratulations! Le gach dea-ghuí, (With all good wishes) Colleen & Greg Be sure to watch the video below for more highlight images from their session!

Wedding at The LakeWatch Inn, Ithaca, NY ♥ Elizabeth + Marcus

As wedding photographers, our clients and our work bring us all over Upstate New York, but one of our most treasured favorite places is the LakeWatch Inn, in Ithaca. When Elizabeth and Marcus contacted us in their search for a wedding photographer, we were not only excited to have the chance of photographing there again, we also fell instantly in love with them as a couple. There is just something about them, that makes everyone who’s met them, stop and take pause. Though our first meeting was over a Skype session, everything there is to love about them came through, just in the way they looked at each other. Our first chance at meeting them was when we traveled to Brooklyn for their engagement session. If you haven’t yet seen the images from their session, you can enjoy them here. We started out with Elizabeth at the Satori Salon where the ladies received a little bit of pampering. The King Suite at Hotel Ithaca made the perfect place for Elizabeth to slip into her stunning wedding gown, before heading over to the Cornell Plantations for their “first look”. Their wedding programs predicted it exactly right: Elizabeth was the one in white, and Marcus was the one in tears. But he wasn’t the only one… We then headed over to LakeWatch for the ceremony, and we were excited to see the beautiful new landscaping and walkway that would now be the aisle for their outdoor weddings. Their ceremony was absolutely perfect, and just watching the way they looked at each other…

Wedding at The LakeWatch Inn, Ithaca ♥ Sarah + Mike – Part Two

Welcome back! We’re happy that you have joined us again to see the beautiful conclusion of Sarah + Mike’s Wedding day! If you’re visiting for the first time, you don’t want to miss Part One that was posted yesterday! We left off yesterday, with the ceremony where the stunning couple made their way down the aisle for the first time, as husband and wife! As it often happens, we usually get the pleasure of being the first people to actually refer to our couples as husband and wife, too. We loved Sarah’s giggle when we did that, while taking some photos of them after the ceremony. To keep things neat, and allow enough space to include all the ceremony photos yesterday, we opted to share the bridal party images today. We actually visited the breathtaking Stewart Park prior to the ceremony, where this group was super helpful and cooperative! Not only was there a big event going on there, and tons of people, we also had to keep an eye out for what we will refer to as “Geese Landmines”.  But they were really good sports about it all, and we still managed to have fun during their Formal photo session. After the bride and groom had a few moments to themselves following the ceremony, and we were graciously allowed access to cool off in the manager’s office, the party began! Sarah and Mike had the sweetest first dance, which was spotlit by the glowing afternoon sun! They kicked off the party with the traditions of the Horah, AND the…

Wedding at The LakeWatch Inn, Ithaca ♥ Sarah + Mike – Part One

Let’s start off this blog post with a bit of honesty. This has been one of the most agonizing blog posts that we have had to compile, ever. This couple had a wedding day for the books, in being so awesome, with so many memorable and touching moments from beginning to end. Which inevitably made it very difficult to narrow down our favorite images that highlighted the day. So for the first time, we are going to do something different, by blogging not one, but TWO parts to represent everything awesome that was Sarah and Mike’s wedding! It was never a doubt for us that Sarah and Mike would have an absolutely awesome wedding day. When we met them for the first time almost exactly a year ago, we traveled to Jersey City for their engagement session. There we also had the pleasure of meeting their four-legged roommate; the lovable Skippy! We really enjoyed getting to bond with them, and see just how perfect they are for each other. If you missed the blog post on their E-Session, you can enjoy it here. Every couple, and every wedding is unique and special in its own way, but we were particularly impressed by Mike’s involvement in the planning, and how dedicated they both were to making their day tailored especially to them! Their day started at the historic Benn Conger Inn, in Groton, where Mike and his groomsmen readied inside the main house. Sarah, Skippy, and her bridesmaids prepared for the day in the beautiful, Victorian cottage right next door. It…
