Kerri & Derek’s anniversary session was definitely one of my favorite shoots of this year and I’m so excited to share some of the images!! Kerri is a fellow photographer and she shares my love of beautiful light, so I was honored when she reached out about this shoot! When she and Derek tied the knot last October, it ended up raining all day so although she has beautiful images to remember their wedding by, she didn’t end up with any of that golden hour light that we obsess over! They even decided to change back into their wedding day attire for the second half of the session, which I was SO excited about!
Kerri and Derek live in Cazenovia so both locations were local to them and new to me, but I knew Kerri would choose some spectacular places and I was right! We started out at Lorenzo State Historic Site in Cazenovia where we strolled around among the fall foliage, flower gardens, and vine-covered walls and I had so much fun capturing the love and laughter between these two, they’re completely adorable!
When we finished up there, we made our way to Red Barn 20, Windridge Estate and I immediately fell in love!! This location has everything I could ever want - from the red barn that inspired it’s name, to an old historic estate, incredible views of the sprawling hills and lakes below, grassy fields, etc! When we arrived, Kerri & Derek changed back into their wedding-day attire (Kerri’s wedding dress is STUNNING) and they looked incredible!! I was so happy when I learned that they planned to renew their vows, and I’m honored that I had the privilege of capturing such special memories for them! Here are a handful of my favorite shots from the session - enjoy!!
