Arielle and Andrew are getting married next July and I couldn’t be more excited to work with this pair at the stunning Fontainebleau Inn! We met at their alma mater, far above Cayuga’s waters, at the beautiful Cornell University for their engagement session. I was thrilled to spend the evening with this pair in a place that has so many wonderful memories, bright beautiful emotions were bubbling under the surface throughout the session and I am thrilled to see what their wedding day brings (you can bet on tons of joyous laughter)!

Emily and John’s wedding was a wonderful way to close out my wedding season especially since I got to shoot at the beautifully renovated Hannum House at the Sherwood Inn. My favorite moment from their wedding was her dress (yes, the dress is officially a MOMENT) I loved the gauzy pale pink skirt that twirled oh-so-perfectly! Another high point was the Russian wedding dance which gave her so many opportunities to spin in her awesome dress. It was a nice touch that her guests were rewarded with vodka shots and traditional cookies after dancing with the bride but the absolute highlight of the wedding were Emily’s vows, I don’t often tear-up at weddings but her vows did me in…well done!

Brian and Tom did not have the perfect weather day but they did have the perfect wedding so who cares if the sun never made an appearance! Their sweet ceremony and killer reception were at Anyela’s Vineyard in Skaneateles. The best part of the wedding was the tremendous display of love and support this couple was surrounded with, it was a fantastic celebration of love (and the food by Rosalie’s was awesome, too)! I am so happy we live in a country that celebrates all types of love and I look forward to documenting so many more same-sex weddings over the years…love ALWAYS wins!

Molly and Rich celebrated their wedding day at SKY Armory in downtown Syracuse surrounded by dear friends and family on a beautiful fall day. My favorite moments from their day were both provided by Rich’s best man, he gave one of the most moving toasts I have ever had the pleasure to witness and then preformed a highly choreographed dance to Lady Gaga’s Applause to celebrate the newlyweds…all best men should strive to be this fabulous!!!! Please enjoy these images, which speak to the couple’s loving relationship to each other and their friends and family.

I recently had the opportunity to do a senior portrait session for Ben, a Skaneateles High School student. He was really reluctant to do the session but the hour we spent walking around town flew by and I even managed to get him to laugh for a few moments (I see that as a complete success when working with 18 year old boys). I never force my clients to do things that feel fake or artificial so Ben spent most of the time being serious and I have a feeling that really reflects his personality, here are two of my favorites…
