Danielle & Jeremy's Book

I had the pleasure of photographing Danielle and Jeremy's wedding last September. Their album arrived in the mail yesterday. It's so exciting to see the finished piece come together so beautifully embodied in these books, and I love this book. Danielle picked a gorgeous black, textured leather for the cover. We all agreed the material worked perfectly with the design of the book and the theme of their wedding. It is truly a one-of-a-kind piece with a timeless look and feel.

We Love to Boogie

The dance floor was on fire tonight at Meghan and John's reception. They had the perfect Fall day for the wedding and topped it off with a bash to remember. Thanks Meghan and John!

Father of the Bride

With so much deserved attention going to the bride and groom, it might be easy to overlook other key players in the big day. I always hope to capture the undercurrent of emotion between the bride and her father. After all, this is "Daddy," who in many cases was the first to spin her around on the dance floor.

I was so happy to be a part of Danielle and Jeremy's big day at Lakewatch Inn in Ithaca a few weeks back. A first impression of Danielle's father, Jim, might lend a picture of a quiet, stoic man. After leading her down the aisle, posing for a few portraits and then getting his father-daughter dance, the tears came. Anyone who has ever been a "Daddy's Little Girl" would have found it hard to keep a dry eye watching Danielle and her daddy dance.

Derek is 1!

I was told little Derek was a bit camera shy before our shoot at Hoopes Park. His big sister Erica was only too happy to spill out the smiles for the camera. Perhaps she, Mom and Dad and all the wide open space to practice his toddling was enough distraction to help him forget I was even there! So cute!

Ellen 2011

There were so many great places to photograph for Ellen's senior session, and all those places were right in her own backyard! I think the giant, ancient willow tree (Wendy's, Ellen's mom's, excellent suggestion) was so cool because of the texture of the old bark. But, I loved using the barn wood for a backdrop. It was Ellen and her beautiful smile, though, that made it all come together into gorgeousness.

Gretchen & Chris: On Top of the World

Last Saturday was, so far, the most beautiful day this summer. Gretchen and Chris got married at Park Central Presbyterian in Syracuse, skipped over to Franklin Square for a few portraits and topped (pun!) it all off with a reception atop the Renaissance Hotel. Congratulations you two! Here's a sneak peek at just a handful of my favs.

Jane & Christopher

A couple weekends ago, I was lucky to photograph another Adirondack wedding! Jane & Chris tied the knot at the North Woods Inn & Resort in Old Forge, NY. We had glorious sunshine all day until late evening when the rain poured down on the party tents. Jane chose a gorgeous champagne tea-length gown for her outdoor wedding, and, after she put it on, she made that dress look even more beautiful!
