When I first decided to start a blog, It was mainly to showcase more of my work and to add to my portfolio. Somewhere along the way, I started sharing almost every session I shot here on the blog. I'm not really sure what I was thinking, that's just madness. I'll be simplifying around here, only sharing the weddings and sessions that add to my portfolio. What the heck does that mean, you ask? That means sharing images shot in new/interesting/different locations and venues, and/or sharing images that best reflect my style as a photographer (for example, I don't share a lot of my large/extended family sessions, because a majority of the shots have a more 'posed' feel to them). That doesn't mean that if your session isn't shared on blog that I like you any less!(If you're wondering, I still plan to share my favorite images from each session on my facebook page!)
With that being said, I have to share this sweet senior session with Rylee and Hannah. I love shooting best friend senior sessions, and these two were especially fun to photograph!
Sometimes, my artist soul needs to photograph someone and not have to worry about getting the 'safe' shot or making the client happy. ( Yeah, I know using the term 'artist' sounds super pretentious..) I'm glad these beautiful girls agreed to put on some flower crowns and oblige me!
I love being able to photograph such a range of different couples and weddings..
Skyler and Eric were married in a joy filled backyard wedding ceremony, on a gorgeous May afternoon. The day was filled with so many tender moments between Eric and Skyler (seriously.. they are the cutest), and lots of love and excitement from their family and friends. It's hard not to be happy for this couple.. their smiles are infectious, and the love they have for each other is so sweet.
I love when a wedding allows me to shoot at new locations and venues. Rick and Kim were married at the absolutely BEAUTIFUL and historic Fort Herkimer Church (with a war reenactment going on next door - so cool!). After the ceremony we headed to The Utica Zoo for their reception. The reception was adorned with funky, diy details (1,000 paper cranes, lace and colorfully dipped wood candle holders), as well as rustic, earthy touches that really showcased who Kim and Rick are as a couple. It was such a joy to capture this wedding.. I couldn't think of a better, more joyful couple to kick of my wedding season with!
