I photographed the SWEETEST surprise last night. Danielle and Kyle surprised their best friends Alicia and Matt with an intimate patio dinner party, complete with their favorite chef, to celebrate their 10 year anniversary. Swipe to see Alicia’s reaction 🌿 What a beautiful friendship - I’m always finding my way into the sweetest stories and working with the loveliest people! This fabulous evening was planned by Daulton of @therefinedhost (follow her if you’re not already!), with floral design by @williams_florist, rentals from @tesoroeventrentals, and custom stationery by @paige_bydesign. Dream team!

This was one of those sessions - the ones that remind me how important photographs are in our lives and relationships, that make me bow in honor of the stories that you trust me to capture. Faren & Reza were married a year ago in Arizona, but their families live in Iran and weren’t able to make it to the states to attend. Faren & Reza were hoping to visit this year, but with COVID’s impact on travel, and how hard it hit Iran, they haven’t been able to make the trip. This session was a beautiful way to celebrate one year of marriage and the family these two are building together, even when most of their family lives on the other side of the world, and it was important to them to have some celebratory images to share with loved ones far away to let them feel like a part of their lives. It was a reminder of how vast the world is, but also how small, and how simple it is to find a connection with anybody - in chatting I learned that Faren and Reza met at NMSU in Las Cruces, NM, where my brother and my cousin went! We bonded over a small town in southern New Mexico, far from where any of us are from, while taking photographs on the scenic hilltops of the Finger Lakes. Beauty in place and spirit!
Happy #fathersday to my baby’s favorite guy! (And mine too). I love watching you grow as a dad, and watching Charlie become more like you every day. Thanks for teaching our kiddo to give amazing hugs, to love the outdoors, and to jam to the good music. Thanks for reading him “The Rabbit Listened” a thousand times in a row. Thanks for making the absolute best pancakes in the world. And thanks for being ours 🖤
Happy solstice my lovelies. Midsummer, the longest day of the year, the day the light triumphs over the dark. This is a shifting of the seasons, and we could certainly use a new season and a new mindset and a new perspective. I hope your day is filled with light and joy and gratitude for what is, plus some real reflection on what could be. Here’s to ever better days ahead 🌿

The mountains are calling 🌿 I can’t wait to see all of the incredible elopemens that spring from this year’s cancelled weddings - there’s always a silver lining, and sometimes it’s a perfect day in the mountains with the people you love the most. . . . . . #mountainwedding #mountainelopement #adventurewedding #happilyeveradk #adirondackwedding #adirondackweddingphotographer #coloradoweddingphotographer #coloradowedding #emirosestudio #newyorkweddingphotographer #newenglandweddingphotographer #bostonweddingphotographer #maineweddingphotographer #hudsonvalleyweddingphotographer #hudsonvalleyweddings #rochesterweddingphotographer #rocgirlgang #fingerlakesweddingphotographer #fingerlakeswedding #buffaloweddingphotographer #hybridphotographer #fineartweddingphotographer #theeverygirl #marthaweddings #smpweddings #realwedding #destinationweddingphotographer #destinationwedding #adventurewedding #adventureelopement
