One thing I really love about our job is not just meeting new people all the time, but actually getting to know the people we meet. A little over a year ago, we met Nicole and Jeffrey for their engagment session in Thornden Park.  They were such a genuine and fun couple. Nicole was bright and bubbly. Jeffrey was thoughtful and adoring. Fast forward to a year later and those traits have not changed in the least. And there was no surprise to find them surround by loved ones so similar. It was so sweet to see how touched Nicole’s brother Nathan was when he gave her a quick hug before the ceremony. Thank you so much Nicole and Jeffrey for sharing your day with us. Congratulations!

There is something about the Thousand Islands. Peaceful. Romantic.   A captain from Schermerhorn Harbor once mentioned that there are very specific requirements for an island to truly have the honor of being counted among the many islands. A true island must rise above the water at all times of the year. It must also have at least one solid tree of a certain diameter, not just shrubbery.   Very often we (or at least I) think of love a bit like a tree. It starts as a seed planted perhaps on purpose, or maybe by ‘accident’. Sunny days and soft rain come along giving it what it needs to grow. Storms may shake the sapling, but in the end, the strength gained is a blessing. Later on, we see the tree and marvel at its strength and beauty.   William’s family have a little cottage on one of the islands near Alexandria Bay and I couldn’t help but thinking that if they judge an island by the strength of its trees, their cottage will remain on an true island for a very long time. I loved seeing Ashleigh and William’s love poured out in who they are.   Congratulations to you both!

Bert and I have been in Northern New York for almost four years now.  Our little blue car has buzzed around the little back roads and has seen some pretty awesome places.  But until last week Friday, we had never taken that right hand turn into Westcott Beach State Park.  That was our loss over the years.  It is such a beautiful and fun place!   Nichole had mentioned Westcott Beach as a great location for their engagement session.  She and Ronnie were hoping to bring along a canoe.    Oh my goodness, they totally rocked it!  They are so cute together.  I can hardly wait for their wedding next year!  Congratulations to both of you!Nichole & Ronnie canoe engagement session Westcott Beach State Park Nichole & Ronnie lake engagement session thousand islands ny Nichole & Ronnie lake engagement session Westcott Beach State Park
