kristen + nicholas | lourdes camp

I have been real bad about blogging this winter, but now that all my albums are complete and all my winter work is ready for prime time I thought it was best I start focusing on my blog before wedding season starts this weekend!! With that said, this is Kristen & Nick's wedding from last June at Lourdes Camp.

Katie & Hadley were married in her childhood backyard here in Skaneateles this past July. The day started with lots of rain :-(  which caused the ceremony to be moved to another location in the backyard.  Luckily for all, the rain finally stopped and the sun peeked upon them right at sunset.

It's nice when winter time comes and I spend these cold quiet days designing my couple's wedding albums. As I look outside the studio window I see skeleton trees, gray skies and snowflakes. Some pretty and some down right ugly. As I turn back to my computer screen, I see beautiful summer days and I smile.

I just designed Adrian and Colin's album and thought I would do a quick snapshot of their wedding.

save the date | tracy + mike

Well, this is a little embarrassing. I was just about the post Tracy & Mike's wedding from last August when I realized I never designed a post of their amazing engagement session.Ugh, I really stink at keeping on top of all this stuff! Anyway, here is the post from their September 2012 engagement session and you will have to wait a few days for the wedding one. :-)

tiptoe through the tulips with lauren + jimmy • skaneateles engagement photography

Okay, so we didn't tiptoe through the tulips, but we did tiptoe and laugh through the beautiful Sycamore Hill Gardens one summer afternoon.  I titled the post tiptoe because as I was going through the images, I was reminded of when I was a child and my father used to watch a variety show called Roland & Martin Laugh In.  One night, way back when, Tiny Tim was a guest and he sang a song called "Tiptoe Through The Tulips" with a ukulele.  For some reason that memory popped into my head as I looking through the gallery and now I can't stop thinking about it.  You have to check it out. It's a riot.

Anyway, back to Lauren and Jimmy!  We indeed laughed the whole time while discovering the gardens.  We were amazed at all the sculptures hidden here and there.  However, the one we found in the middle of the maze made us pause.  Lauren and Jimmy, you know which one I am talking about!  We just stood there looking at it, not quite sure what to make of it.  I think I might have even dropped my camera.

Well, I look forward to photographing your beautiful wedding in 2012!  Thank you for a great afternoon.

picking flowers at skaneateles town square ● skaneateles wedding photographer

Last season a new florist emerged and it was in my own backyard!  Skaneateles Town Square is our local Ace Hardware store and it's massive!  It has everything anyone could possibly need for their home and garden and now weddings!  I hope to see more of their flowers at his season's weddings!

Good luck Town Square.  You are off to a great start!

jennifer + derek ● a new beginning on a beautiful september day ● skaneateles wedding photographer

The day of Jennifer and Derek's wedding could not have been more perfect, and I could not have asked for more beautiful day to photograph a wedding.  Surrounded by close friends and family, Jennifer and Derek exchanged their vows on September 11th overlooking Skaneateles Lake at Anyela's Vineyards.  Beautifully staged by Kate Lemos Brown of Lovewell Design, Anyela's was breathtaking as you walked in.  From the flowers by Folls Flower Farm, to the tiny pumpkins that served the soup in one of the four incredible courses served by Pure Catering, the whole scene was a joy to photograph. Just amazing and lots of fun.

Once again, thank you Jennifer and Derek for letting me capture this amazing day in September!

katie + luke ● down the isle ● skaneateles wedding photography

I just finished Katie and Luke's wedding album and decided to pull some her favorites and mine and create a nice little blog post.  I know that I am out of order, but it was nice to be back in October again.  Even if only through photographs.

Katie and Luke were married this past October here in Skaneateles at the First Presbyterian Church with the reception following afterwards at the Skaneateles Country Club.  Two of my favorite venues to photograph in.  It was a gorgeous October day and my friend James Bass came out to keep me company and start with Luke and his crew.  Thank you James.  It was a riot to have you around.

Most of all, thank you Katie and Luke for letting me capture your beautiful wedding.
