Joe and Andrea were married at the Craftsman Inn in Fayetteville, NY, and there was not a single imperfection in their entire day. I wish I could have bottled up that weather for EVERY wedding for the next forever years! It isn’t every day I get to photograph the same group of friends, over and […]

The Sherwood Inn has been my husband’s and my “place” for lots of years. It’s where we went to hide for a night from my husband’s first teaching job and the burdens of my college schedule. It was freezing cold outside, but cozy and smelling of fresh crab bisque inside. We watched Judge Judy reruns […]

The sun shown over the gorgeous Colloca Estate Winery for Kaitlin and Brad’s one-of-a-kind spring wedding. Birds sang, the blue water, which the property overlooks, shimmered, and the land was filled with laughter. Really.

This Lake Placid Elopement was the absolute perfect way to kick off my 2016 season. I met Sam and Erin at Jim and Jennie’s wedding which you can see here, as both of them were in J&J’s bridal party. This was an authentic elopement with no one present but the judge, the couple, and the photographer.

Patrick and Kelly’s classic and elegant wedding celebrated at Traditions, the stunning reception venue on the East side of Syracuse, NY. But the day began at a cathedral in Syracuse, surrounded by friends and family, AND Kelly’s students (I know! Right?! I knew Kelly was a pretty amazing bride before this point, but after seeing all […]

I could not have asked for a better couple to end the season with than with Matt and Kristen at the Springside Inn in Auburn, NY. These two were everything: gentle, welcoming, GORGEOUS, fun, trusting, and so incredibly in love. Winter weddings are a double edged sword for this girl: they’re known to be rather […]
