Oh goodness I’ve been meaning to share so many shots from our summer weddings but Instagram just hasn’t been the priority this year. I do love this platform though, it’s what has connected us to our amazing couples.
I wanted to speak a little on what it’s like to be a wedding photographer/videographer. It’s challenging in so many ways, the travel, the lighting situations with varied schedules, the way weddings don’t always go according to plan... but this is what makes it so great for me. Each couple and how they handle the challenges and stress on a wedding day teaches us something. We learn new ways to deal with things, new perspectives and new ways to love. It’s like a rollercoaster day for our couples and we get to be with them through it all. It can go from sometimes crying in the morning to absolute energized bliss by the end of the night. It changes us every single time.
Your stories are magic and we are beyond grateful to be blessed with these stories. Thank you thank you thank you to everyone who trusts us to capture your big celebration. We love you 💕
And here’s little snippets from Maggie and Adam’s wedding.

One suggestion I have for brides and their photographers is to head out to the top of our hill at sunset. The lake & the beautiful colours of the sky make for some amazing pictures 😍 •
I don’t know who needs to hear this, but listen. You are perfect for the heart that’s meant to love you. Don’t change the person you are. Don’t conform to something you THINK somebody will love. Don’t compare yourself. Don’t lower your standards. Don’t rush into something. Don’t forget your worth. And please. Please please please wait for the man that looks at you and cherishes you the way @d_croslin824 does me. I’ve never felt so complete. So flawless. So fulfilled. So important. And so perfect for somebody the way Dylan makes me feel. He is so pure and so selfless. He would give me the world if he could and, in my eyes, he has. I’m not saying this to “brag”. I’m saying this because I didn’t find myself worthy of someone like him until I BELIEVED and UNDERSTOOD the person God said I was. Know yourself. Find yourself. Feel worthy. Be worthy. And the man will treat you that same way. >

and it can be an 'easy' thing to say, right, to respond to hate with love.. but when you're personally encountering someone who is so incredibly enveloped in negative energy, and they are even verbally aggressive towards you- something which happened to me today.. it's incredibly frustrating.
in the past, I would have let their anger ignite mine, and reacted the same way to 'come up for myself'. and I felt it coming up again.. but I stayed calm. because I reminded myself that the people who act this way.. need love the most. 🌱 and reacting to anger with anger, will not change a thing. it will only ignite it. reacting to anger with love, now THAT can change something. 🕯
and I wanted to send that man love when I arrived back home, but I just.. couldn't. I honestly did feel a little angry, and also frustrated that I just.. couldn't.
and that's okay.
we're all still human.
and we're all still growing..
but now, as i'm about to go to bed..
I close my eyes..
I put my hands on my heart..
and I send him love.
because love is the only catalyst to change.
hate only keeps us running in circles.
I met Heather and Dave while working on a great project for them. There are so many truly interesting things about both of them, but what I loved the most is their special loving bond. Soulmates in truest sense of the word.

The Sinclair of Skaneateles used to be an old chair factory. In fact, the chairs used at the reception were made in the very same building (I know. SO cool.). When you walk in, you're immediately feasting on every. single. GORGEOUS detail. From the amazing vintage loveseat (fun fact, I literally almost bought this exact same loveseat--this very one-- and kick myself now because it's totally as comfortable as it is gorgeous), to every carefully selected chandelier, to even every wash room given as much attention as the main spaces, this venue is a wedding photographer's fantasy. But the pretty amazing thing about Saturday is that Meghan and Dann's love for one another was even dreamier than every detail surrounding this venue. There is a confidence that follows their partnership. There's this subtle and yet profound assurance that weaves its way between the threads of their exchanges that says to the world "we are one another's person and it's as meant to be as the glittering stars in the night sky." And that's pretty special and pretty profound to document. Meghan has that giant heart that lets everyone know when they're in her midst that she loves them, cares about them and will naturally always think best of others first. And Dann's collected, focused and witty person makes him the kind of person everyone wants to surround. Together, they're like a proverbial hand reach, inviting all to come along on their adventures, and everyone can't help but to follow.
Another fun fact about their day is that Meghan's grandmother helped her pick out her dress. Even though she tried on many a dress, her sweet GM knew it was the first one she tried that'd be her forever gown. I wish my grandma helped pick out my dress.
I am immensely honored to have been chosen to document their celebration. I am thrilled to have joined team D&M, and I'm overjoyed to see what lies before them as Mr. and Mrs. Whitmore!

This bride got everything right. Makeup was done by one of her best friends, bridesmaids were her sisters, Grandpa officiated the wedding, and the whole thing was hosted in the house she grew up in. And I have never seen someone smile for so many hours on end without breaking once. • • • • • • • •
Who else loves cuddling up in front of a fire?🙋♀️

Everyday gives the gift
To start again.
To wake up to a new day,
Where you can choose again
How you want to be.
So choose consciously and purposefully.
And begin creating the life your heart is beating to live for.
Remember you always have the option to reset and start again,
In any and all moments.

If we're honest, maternity sessions give me baby fever like you wouldn't believe 🤦♀️ But then I remember how much I didn't like being pregnant and just enjoy the glow of the mama I'm photographing.
I don’t take this job lightly, it’s so awesome that I get to be a part of these beautiful moments. I’m often in disbelief that this is my job and my couples invite me into their lives, trusting me and offering me this opportunity. I
love hearing love stories and all details that lead up to their wedding day, and then helping them express what it all means and share what their hopes and dreams are. I know it’s a huge day for my couples, for me it’s also a very special day that fills me up in so many ways.✨✨✨
I will always be a fan of a tram entrance and a panoramic view. Kate and Dan love Tahoe and wanted to share this beautiful part of our world with their loved ones. They exchanged their vows mountaintop @skiheavenly with all the florals designed by Kate’s mother who came from New Jersey, I’m so impressed with how she managed this.
three cheers for three trips around the sun with this guy! 🍻🍻🍻 year 3 was filled with some big steps, new places, and lots and lots of laughs.
i’m so thankful that we crossed paths to create a life full of constant pasta dinners, hiking with a bunch of snacks, owning the weirdest dogs around, trial and error margarita recipes, lazy sunday mornings, and a growing collection of halloween wigs.
I love the feeling of laughing so hard at our jokes that we can’t breathe, fixing things around the house together even if it means flooding the bathroom, and somehow making it a habit to watch the absolute worst movies on netflix.
Can we please...
Start honoring our worth
Our amazing hearts
Our WHOLE selves
And can we please stop...
Trying to fit in?
At the sake of being who we really and truly are.
Can we please stop...
Wanting to be liked by everyone?
Instead of choosing whose opinion actually matters and whose thoughts we really respect.
Can we please stop...
Shaming our bodies and our beauty?
And practice loving our unique shapes, sizes, and marvel at allll that our bodies can do.
So that we can begin living a life that is generous, abundant, fulfilling, and overflowing with joy? -
If you’re in, leave me a few 💚💚💚

In a little less than a month these photos will be a year old. How does time fly by so fast? This was my first of many shoots with Jess & Josh 💛 so fun to look back on “old” photos :) •
2 years ago today, my good friend at the time took me on my first “date”. We’d been moving this direction for almost a year.. but this day we actually went somewhere together just the two of us.. somewhere sooo romantic.. not. Our first official date was to a junk yard. Yup. And honestly I love love that it was, and the reason behind it. I had run into a deer and damaged my car severely the week before, but my kind caring talented Andrew took me on a trip to the junk yard to find parts to fix it! He bought me chipotle afterwards.. the first time I’d ever let him buy me food. Then in the parking lot as we were saying goodbye, he smiled and said “you know I don’t think I’ve actually officially asked you yet..” and then and there he asked me to be his girlfriend. I said yes, and I’ve never stopped saying yes. And I never will. .

I know it’s a long shot, but I’m praying for another #superbloom this spring.
Mrs. and Mrs. Snow // Est. October 12th 2019 ✨👰🏻👰🏻💫
One week as wives and loving every minute of it! It’s crazy but I feel even more connected and in love with @_mad_snow than I ever thought was possible. Maybe it’s just the stress melting away? But seriously though, I’m feeling beyond blessed to say “I do” to the woman of my dreams, legally and by choice, every single day. ❤️👑 💍
And y’all these photos by @jessicaardenphoto are slaying us. We can’t wait to share more of the magic! ✨ .
To you: As I said in this video the only thing I regret with all my heart is not telling you everything I had in mind when I saw you for the last time, I guess I didn’t have the courage to assume it could be the last time, and not telling you kept my hopes of seeing you the next day to tell you everything. But it never happened... Then, I sat over a dozen times to write you a letter but I never found the right words to describe my feelings, I still can't find them but one thing I know is that I owe you a HUGE thank you and a whole-hearted I LOVE YOU. I would do -anything- to spend a couple hours with you, to have my best friend, my confident and my boyfriend back; nothing has been the same without you and I honestly miss the Manuela I was when we were together, that simple, happy and stubborn girl that you used to call my baby. Nothing else but the biggest THANK YOU. @evan_marc ❤️🎬Los invito a todos a que vean el nuevo video en mi canal de #youtube , en donde les cuento como conocí a Evan y como fue nuestra relación, lo hice con todo el amor del 🌎.
