It was such a lovely autumn day and we had the vineyards all to ourselves, overlooking the sparkling Seneca Lake!Well, almost! This little fella wanted to see what all the fuss was about. After a few close ups, he let us get back to work.The pretty blue skies, and the golden autumn sun helped make some very pretty portraits!Oh, and we couldn’t leave without a photo of the donkeys. The kept their eyes on us to make sure we were doing a good job.After we left the vineyards, we headed over to Sampson State Park where Teddy joined us for a few portraits by the lake.It turned out to be a gorgeous evening, even though it was pretty cold at the end. We had a wonderful time with you three, Lisa and Casey, and we are super excited for your wedding next year! It’s going to be fabulous!

Winery Wedding at Wagner Vineyards, Lodi, NY ♥ Alexa + Ryan

Alexa and Ryan’s winery wedding at Wagner Vineyards was our first wedding this year that actually felt like fall. It was just a year ago that we first visited Watkins Glen with the happy couple, along with Caly, for their engagement session. Alexa started the wedding day by getting dolled up at the New Image Hair Net Work in Watkins Glen… While Ryan was “pampered” at the Watkins Glen Harbor Hotel. (Also, be sure to watch the highlight reel at the bottom for images of the “pampering”.)After all the ladies were finished with hair and makeup, they headed back to Alexa’s parents to get into their dresses, and help the bride get into hers.And the guys… well, they did more guy things. Near water. With alcohol.Alexa made an absolutely stunning bride! And “little” Miss Caly, who isn’t quite so little anymore, made an appearance all decked out in her own pearls, in some portraits with her “Mom”.Before we knew it, it was time to head over to Wagner Vineyards for their ceremony.A beautiful reception, catered by the staff at the Ginny Lee Cafe, right at Wagner, followed their heartwarming exchange of vows and rings.Not a slice of cake to be found at this wedding! Can’t have a fall wedding without a slice of an amazing assortment of pies, courtesy of The Village Bakery.A lot of dancing and epic moves were performed on the dance floor, made possible with music from Bill at Black Tie Entertainment. It was fantastic to finally work with Bill, who had remained “elusive” through the years…

Engagement Session at Watkins Glen, NY ♥ Elizabeth + Michael

It was a gorge-ous autumn day when we met up with Elizabeth and Michael for their engagement session at Watkins Glen. We absolutely love the opportunity to photograph a session commemorating a couple’s engagement. It provides us with a chance to get to know them, and for them to ease into having their portraits taken. It’s especially nice when they select a meaningful location for their session, like Elizabeth and Michael did! They chose to revisit the location where they had their first date, and it was the perfect location to start their session! We began their session right at Lover’s Lane, and walked in and around the park stopping at some fantastic spots that showed off not only the gorges, and the autumn colors, but also Elizabeth and Michael as well! We even spotted a heart-shaped rock in the water, that made for a perfect addition to some of their portraits. We stopped at the Cavern Cascade for a nice long-exposure portrait before we headed out of the park. In recreating their first date travels, we headed next to the Seneca Lake Pier, where the setting sun gave us some wispy clouds, and plenty of color for some final portraits at dusk. Elizabeth and Michael, thank you for taking us on a nice hike with you! It was a lot of fun getting to visit the glen again, after six years, and getting to include the two of you in a great evening! You guys are a great couple, and we are really looking forward to seeing you let…

Wedding at St. Stephen’s Church, Geneva, NY ♥ Danielle + Chris

When we met Danielle and Chris, we knew right away that we were going to love being their photographers! When they mentioned a New Year’s Eve wedding and celebration of the holiday, we had no idea what we were in store for, but we can tell you now that it was everything we had hoped for and more! We started out our day with a very relaxed Danielle, and her lovely ladies at the historic William Smith Inn, in Geneva. The perfect place to stay for your wedding, if you would like a warm welcome, and plenty of hospitality! The girls took an easy going approach to getting ready, and everything was calm and serene, until… the guys showed up. I think the actual party started before they even arrived. A fun-loving group, but in no way were they short on energy and laughs. We all picked up the pace to keep up with Chris and his boys, (and also because it was 20 degrees outside). After a sweet first look session, we got a chance to do it again, since the groom was wearing the wrong tie. Chris, your wife was on the money – tie number two was definitely the better choice! After cracking the whip on the boys, we got a few fun photos inside the inn, before heading out to take some formal shots of the two love birds and bridal party on the gorgeous Seneca Lake. When it was “go” time, there were no complaints to be heard about getting to St. Stephen’s Church to…

Engagement Session at Pulteney Park and Hobart and William Smith Colleges, Geneva, NY ♥ Kara + Nick

Kara and Nick were such a great couple to photograph! If we didn’t know better, we would have thought that they had done this before. As awkward as they may have thought they were going to be, they were very relaxed, and had no problem forgetting that we were even there! The light was perfect for their evening engagement session in Geneva, and we started out near the historic Row Houses on South Main Street. We had the perfect opportunity, with the parade going on down the road, to get some shots of the two of them around town. Considering that it’s an otherwise busy area, we encountered hardly any people, giving these two a chance to be cute and romantic, with only a couple of hecklers. Making our way down to Pulteney Park, we stopped for some beautiful sun-lit portraits, before getting to the unique water fountain, that sparked some childhood memories and giggles for Nick. Before heading off to meet up with Eva, the couple’s German Shepherd, we stopped for a quick gaze at the picturesque Seneca Lake. Afterward, we took a short drive to the Hobart and William Smith Colleges, where we greeted with some VERY LOUD “Hellos!” from Eva. Though all bark and no bite, not gonna lie, we initially thought we would be leaving with a couple less limbs. I’m guessing she sensed we were cat owners, and decided to express her feelings on that. As long as she was cuddling with her humans, she was a happy pup! We finished up their session by…
