Engagement Session at Armory Square, Syracuse, NY ♥ Colleen + Michael

Colleen and Michael embarked on their journey of love at the popular Irish Pub, Kitty Hoynes. What better place to also start out their engagement session with us, on a warm and sunny afternoon? Remember back when it was warm and sunny? Celebrating their Irish Pride (we just loved that!), and their engagement, they shared a couple of pints, while sharing a few laughs. We wandered around Armory Square a little bit before heading off to Upper Onondaga Park to catch the sunset. The beautiful willow trees, sparkling pond, and breath-taking views of the city added the perfect backdrop to their session. Check out the video below to see some of our favorites from their session! Thank you, Colleen and Michael for enjoying the evening with us! We can’t wait to celebrate with you again, at your wedding!Le gach dea-ghuí, (With all good wishes)  Colleen & Greg  …

Engagement Session with Blueberries & Fishing in Fort Plain, NY ♥ Casey + Sam

We were almost TOO excited to meet up with Casey and Sam for their recent E-session, in Fort Plain, since we absolutely love when couples select a place where they can relax and be their natural selves. When they chose the homes of Casey’s Grandparents and nearby Aunt and Uncle, we couldn’t wait to spend the evening with them! It was a gorgeous day when we arrived in the Mohawk Valley, and we knew we would have so many opportunities for great shots once we got there. We started out with some fantastic shots in the woods, by their sparkling pond out behind her Aunt and Uncle’s home, and some quiet portraits by the fields.  We then went to her Grandparent’s farm, where a few portraits in the barn and out by the tractor were a must! The couple also stopped to pick some blueberries together. They were ripened to perfection, and ready to be eaten! While we waited for the sun to come down in the sky a bit, we shared pizza with Casey, Sam, and Casey’s Grandparents, followed by a delicious bowl of vanilla ice cream topped with the fresh blueberries picked from their blueberry bushes out back. So yummy! After dinner and dessert, we enjoyed a breath-taking golden sunset by the pond. We finished up their session with a bit of fishing at the pond, where Sam was able to catch a friend that Sam and Casey were all too happy to pose with! We really had such a wonderful time visiting with these two, and getting…

Alison + Jason = Married | Wedding Photography at Aurora Inn, Immaculate Conception Church and LakeWatch Inn Ithaca NY

Alison and Jason’s fairytale weekend began Friday night with their rehearsal dinner at the beautiful Aurora Inn, in Aurora, NY. The intimate gathering of their close friends and family overlooking the beautiful Cayuga Lake, celebrated their love for each other. Wine, hors d’oeuvres, and a nice dinner was served with relaxing music provided by John Joseph of Caribbean Breeze Steel Band. A breathtaking sunset at the close of the evening provided a perfect backdrop for photos of the couple and their guests. Their wedding day began with preparations at The Hilton Garden Inn, and the bride’s childhood home in Ithaca. Their ceremony took place at the spectacular Immaculate Conception Church, where tears of joy adorned the faces of their family and friends as they exchanged their marriage vows. Alison and Jason were surprised by the bride’s parents, with a special ride for their day! A baby blue Bentley was waiting outside the church for them to be chauffeured around Ithaca, complete with a driver! We followed behind them to the Cornell Plantations where we took some great formal shots of the bride, groom, and their attendants. And with one of the bridesmaids prodding, we ventured down to the Ithaca Falls, where we scooped up a few more shots of the lovely Mister & Missus in front of the falls and some swimmers. Their reception at the Lakewatch Inn was nothing short of magical! The atmosphere, that included live music from the band The Destination, was warm and inviting. Kudos to the staff at the Lakewatch Inn for providing the guests…
