 “How do you really know when you are in love?”

The sparkle in the eyes each moment together. The smile that makes them beam like no one else can. The answer seems so simple and yet hard to define. You just know. And it  is a beautiful thing. Thanks Sarah & Donny for letting us record something of your love, & congratulations to you both!

This year has been full of reports of unusual weather around the country.  But the day of Brooke and Dan’s wedding dawned completely perfect in Ogdensburg, NY.  Late summer offered it’s stellar mix of warm coolness.   The girl’s began the morning with hair and makeup at Brooke’s parents home.  Brooke’s mother Pam crafted clutches for each of the bridesmaids.  Each clutch was unique and beautiful.  She also created a special one for Brooke which included bits of lace and detail from her own wedding gown.   Dan was truly the man of the day with his wedding gift for Brooke.  How can anyone resist the unmistakable blue/green box?!?   Brooke and Dan are such a warm and cute couple.  We wish them all the best!

Sometimes in life we happen to cross paths with a person who has the ability to make us laugh.   Then there are times when we meet someone who makes us smile.   And occasionally we connect with someone who we are able to really be our self around.  Once in a lifetime we meet the person who is able to do all three.   In this, Emily and Sam have found this person in each other and it was beautiful to be able to capture a little bit of their together story.  We are so happy for you!  Congratulations!  Emiy & Sam's Wellesley Island Engagement Session near sunsetEmiy & Sam's Wellesley Island Engagement Session on the peir Emiy & Sam's Wellesley Island Engagement Session Emiy & Sam's Engagement Session on a peir Wellesley Island Emiy & Sam's Wellesley Island Engagement Session in the garden Emiy & Sam's Engagement photo under the bridge Wellesley Island Emiy & Sam's Engagement Session photo from under a bridge on Wellesley Island Emiy & Sam's Engagement Session pic cuddling on Wellesley Island Emiy & Sam's Engagement Session in a garden on Wellesley Island Emiy & Sam's Wellesley Island beach Engagement Session near sunset Emiy & Sam snuggling for a photo at their engagement session Emiy & Sam's Wellesley Island Engagement Session near the water

After shooting weddings in Northern New York for several years now, we have finally taken it to the next level–a wedding at Boldt Castle!  We didn’t really put it together right away that we hadn’t yet shot on the island, since we have visited a couple of times as tourist.  Their wedding was fabulous.  Ashleigh was a stunning bride.  She and the girls had their hair and makeup done in Alex Bay before hopping aboard the Island Girl for the quick trip to Heart Island.   Ashleigh and William chose many sweet little details for their day, such as personalised totes for the bridesmaids and a groom’s cake that perfectly replicated William’s airplane .  Congratulations to you both!
