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!

Laura & Joe || Engagement Session, Baldwinsville, NY

I met Laura and Joe, and we immediately got along at our initial meeting! Joe is also a photographer so I knew that they were going to be very careful with selecting a wedding photographer, especially when they told me that they couldn't decide on anyone yet. I was thrilled when they asked me to be their photographer.

For their engagement session we met up at Abbott Farms and then headed over to Beaver Lake Nature Center to find a quieter area for more pictures. Laura and Joe's engagement session was full of love and laughter, as evident in these images. I cannot wait for their wedding next year!

Brittany & Brandon || Engagement Session

I met Brittany and Brandon from work (which is also where they met), but it wasn't until a week before we their engagement shoot that I knew I was going to be photographing them. By some string of luck and chance I became their photographer, and I'm so happy to have been able to tell their story! I had a blast walking and talking with them, and I can't wait to work with them again for their wedding!
