For Adam + Katie’s engagement session we met in the Finger Lakes region at one of my favorite spots… Kershaw Park!!! It’s not too far from Rochester and midpoint for a few of my Central NY weddings. We first met at the Twisted Rail, where the birthday boy was having a quick drink before we started their engagement session.
One thing I love about all my friends getting engaged is doing their engagement sessions for them. It means a little more when I know the couple behind the camera because I know their relationship and back story. MacKenzie and I have been friends for a few years now so I was really excited when she asked me to photograph their engagement session.
Some couples I instantly connect with and others take a little time to warm up to being in front of the camera. John + Danielle are one of those couples who had me smiling the whole time because of how cute they are together. We bonded over our stories of how the weird world of dating apps brought us to our perfect match.
Since the beginning of this year I knew October was going to be my busiest month of sessions and weddings. I can’t believe I’m almost fully booked for 2019!! One of my couples for next year are these two, Vinny + Brittany!!! Vinny proposed to Brittany this past summer at the very location we met to take their engagement photos, Green Lakes State Park.
It's been a few months since I've been back to Webster Park this year and my goodness was it a great evening! The water was so calm and the sunset was soft and warm! Matt + Sarah also brought along the most picture ready girl I've ever met, Lillia!!!
It's been an absolutely crazy summer!!! Tons of weddings, on top of engagement sessions for my 2018 + 2019 couples... senior sessions for the Class of 2019 AND all that fun editing! Yuri + Iryna are getting married in less than a couple of weeks, but we had time to fit in their engagement session.
This engagement session was definitely a special one!!! It was a session of MANY new firsts for me! The first time exploring Hamilton College/Root Glen, the first time a couple has brought CHIPOTLE to an engagement session, and the first time a squirrel followed us around for the entire session (and we might have named that squirrel, Guacamole... no big deal).
