Emily + Kevin // Skaneateles, NY Wedding

I've got another wedding to share today!! I'm so obsessed with the colors and feelings these photos give, and this couple's full gallery has some of the BEST reception dancing photos ever.

Emily and Kevin got married on September 30th at the Sinclair of Skaneateles, which is such a gorgeous venue located just outside the town of Skaneateles. Any couples getting married there in the future are lucky ducks to have such a beautiful location to begin their married life together!

These guys have been together for several years, and have the sweetest now-one-year-old named Sawyer who was there for their beautiful wedding day - he even partied into the night! There are a series of photos from when Emily was getting dressed in their hotel room that MELT my heart, and that I'm sure will be treasured for years to come. How special is it to be part of your parents' wedding day?!

Emily and Kevin's ceremony was officiated by Brandi Kohl, who brought such amazing, calming, peaceful and uplifting feelings to their ceremony. It was based on nature and universal messages of unity rather than religious ones, which just fit this couple and all of their guests so perfectly. So much of what Brandi spoke about resonated with me that I kept having to remind myself that I had work to do!

The couples' closest friends were part of the bridal party, and the best thing about this group is that they are all very good friends - it made for literally the best time all day long! They had no trouble acting on my cues to be silly or chatty during group photos, and they did not leave the dance floor - except to eat pizza!

There are so many parts of Emily and Kevin's wedding day that I just LOVE. I love how easygoing it was, how it just felt like an actual party with less "to-do's", how the pizza was just flowing endlessly all night (I freaking love Toss N' Fire pizza, guys) and how these guys really paid attention to the things that mattered most to them. More, please!!

Thanks, Emily and Kevin, for having me and Olivia to capture your amazing day!!

Shannon + Cody

I'm sharing another beautiful couple today, another pair that I cannot wait to photograph on their wedding day in 2018. Shannon was one of my very best friends in high school, so it's such a joy for me to be able to witness her love to Cody and then be with them on their wedding day. I just love seeing my friends grow and create their own families!

Thank you so, so much for having me be part of this special time in your lives, Shannon and Cody!!

Kat + Dylan // Rochester, NY Engagement Session

I am SOOO excited to share these photos today, guys! I've been sharing some fiery couples with you the last few weeks, and this pair is no exception. They were only in town for a few days in October, so when the forecast called for rain I'm pretty sure we were all bummed. But, I'm so glad we went for it anyways because I'm loving the deep tones in all these photos. The Memorial Art Gallery was a fantastic location for us to begin with, and will be where Kat and Dylan get married next year! After hanging out there for awhile, we went to Highland Park for some more casual photos that showed off some gorgeous fall foliage.

I cannot WAIT to see how beautiful these two look on their big day next year - surrounded by equally as beautiful friends and family, no doubt! Thanks for including me in your love story, guys!

The Scott Family // Skaneateles Lifestyle photography

It's not often enough that I get to photograph in-home lifestyle sessions, much less inside homes that I literally can't stop swooning over. I mean... the Scott's have my idea of #housegoals for real.

Also... holy cow they are just the cutest little family ever!! Baby Paige showed off the cutest smiles and proved to be the best cuddler during this session.

Interested in having a lifestyle session of your own? Winter and chilly weather is the perfect time to snuggle indoors with your family and make some memories that you can look back on forever. Let's chat about it!

The White Family // Skaneateles/Elbridge NY Farm Family Photography

There's nothing better when a photo session combines a beautiful family, a meaningful location, and beautiful evening light! That's exactly what these photos were all about, and I am SO obsessed with every single one. Normally I choose between 15 and 20 photos to share, but I went overboard here because I could not stop... I'm sure you won't mind peeking at a few extra gorgeous photos. ALSO... Nina and Ben take the cake for most beautiful mom and dad photos during a family session. I always try to snap a few of parents together at the end of the session because it's so rare to get a good photo together once you become parents. They NAILED IT!!
