Jojo & Anthony || Engagement Session, Franklin Square

Jojo reached out to me to photograph her wedding as soon as she and Anthony got engaged last year! We knew each other from college, and she always knew that I would document that day for her when it happened. We finally got around to taking their engagement photos while all the trees were flowering in Franklin Square this May, and they arrived in full 1920s apparel complete with props to go with their wedding theme. To say that Brandon and I had fun photographing them is an understatement.

We picked the first beautiful weekend this spring in Franklin Square, which meant we had to work around all the other photo sessions going on around us, but the pictures tell of a story that is of just them. Their personalities really shine through in these images, and I can hear Jojo’s laughter and Anthony’s silliness. we cannot wait to photograph your wedding in September!

Peter & Lauren || Proposal, Syracuse, NY

Peter reached out to me inquiring about a proposal photographer. He gotten my name from our mutual friend Liz - I interned with her at the Everson Museum of Art & he knows her from Syracuse University! We had planned to meet up the week before he was going to propose, but that unfortunately fell through. The first time I met him was after he had gotten down on his knee in the Sycamore Hill Gardens to propose to Lauren!

Brandon and I got to the gardens early to scope the area out and act like landscapers (with huge camera, no big deal, right?). Lauren has no idea we were even there in plain sight until after! It might have started as a rainy day, but the sun came out towards the end of their engagement session we did following the proposal. The gardens were perfect for them as an architect and engineer. There were so many different structures and ruins to explore. It was truly a unique day!

If you’re thinking you want a proposal photographer - I am always available to talk! I would to capture more amazing moments like this for you!

Joanna & David || Engagement Session, Beaver Lake

I have known Joanna since about 2nd grade (I think it’s been 20 years!) so when she and David got engaged, I knew I had to do a session for her! The two of them met by chance while they were at the same bible study when Joanna heard someone say the name of her college. That encounter is what prompted their initial friendship that blossomed into more. They currently live in New Jersey (where they’re tying the knot in August & I’ll also be a bridesmaid in the wedding), but while they were home visiting family over Easter, we seized the moment for some photos!

Beaver Lake is close to where I live so we all headed over there to get some sweet photos of them by the water. There is something about photographing childhood friends that brings me so much joy. Enjoy these images, and I can’t wait to party with them near the end of summer!
