There's something about having a place completely to ourselves that I really love during engagement sessions. Not everyone is completely at ease when they first get in front of the camera, so when you add in a bunch of curious strangers eyeing them, some people take a little longer to feel like themselves. When you find a space like this park on Hemlock Lake, this isn't something we have to worry about! It was so peaceful and calm there, I enjoyed the location almost as much as I enjoyed photographing the beautiful couple in these photos! Courtney & Dan live in Boston, so since they work during the week and my weekend schedule is so crazy, it was a little tricky to find a time that worked for everyone. I'm so thankful that when we did it ended up being an absolutely perfect afternoon in the Finger Lakes. These two were so easy-going and fun to chat with I felt like I could've spent hours more exploring this beautiful scenery and photographing them. Here are a few of my favorite images from their session!
