What a year! I absolutely LOVE engagement sessions for a million reasons, a big one being all the locations they bring me to, from barns to beaches and everything in between. 2017 took me from a brewery in Hoosick Falls, to a sunset boat ride on Lake Sacandaga, to an old fort outside of Buffalo, to the various beautiful parks and neighborhoods right here in Rochester, NY! I certainly got to photograph couples in a lot of gorgeous places this year, but even better than the locations were the people in these photographs! Every couple is totally unique, and I loved getting to know each of them and learning about their love story, which brings me to the other main reason I love photographing engagement sessions; getting to know my clients! The more I get to know you, the better able I am to truly capture the essence of YOU and YOUR relationship. It is so special to have photographs to bring you back to the real emotions and excitement of this wonderful time in your lives!
All of the couples I’ve worked with have one thing in common – they are each an absolute pleasure to photograph! I don’t know how I continuously get so lucky with these incredible couples finding and hiring me, but I am endlessly grateful to them for letting me make these small works of art to showcase their love story. Some of these lovebirds’ weddings have come and gone, but the majority of them will be coming up this year and I couldn’t be more excited for this upcoming wedding season! I had a great time looking through all of 2017’s engagement sessions and narrowing it down to some of my favorite images to share with you here! Enjoy!
