I have been hearing about the plans, the ideas, the proposal before there was even a ring involved with these two. I had the pleasure of meeting Taylor when we both worked at Second Chic, a consignment shoppe together a few years ago and we hit it off immediately. Over the years, I have heard all about Shawn. Specifically how he has always been "the one". I mean, this girl has been day dreaming about this proposal I'm sure long before Shawn had even known he was going to do it! Eventually he finally did propose, right in Yosemite Park like someone truly after Tay's heart. Fast forward a year later and I had the absolute honor and pleasure of photographing this meticulously planned union by the ever stylish Taylor Baudendistle herself. No one knows aesthetics like this girl, see for yourself! Congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Field!
Let's talk about a small world! I went to high school with Richelle back in our tiny town of Frankfort about three hours east of Buffalo. Justin is one of my best friends cousins who was born in Buffalo. Both Richelle & Justin have since relocated to Rochester where they've built a life together. However, since we are all acquainted with each other, Richelle reached out to me about her engagement session. October is her favorite month (mine too, girl!) so we sticked with a theme of fall foliage and a little bit of spookiness at the old psych center. I'm so excited for their October themed wedding next year. Can you guess what month their getting married? *coughOCTOBERcough* So without further a due, here's the happy couple themselves! Thanks again guys!
I grew up in the Mohawk Valley but have relocated to Buffalo for the past six years. I'm always ecstatic when I have an excuse to come home. And especially when its for a storybook wedding like Kaylee & Ryan's. I have fond memories of Cooperstown from my childhood, so when Kaylee told me the location; I was ready! The entire day was humble, the love they shared was nurtured and real. We couldn't have asked for a better day or location. But what I can say caught me off guard was how good a dancer Kaylee is! Her and Ryan choreographed their first dance and went from the jive all the way to the dirty dancing move. Did I mention I have a terrible sweet tooth? This was my downfall in the night because they had an ENTIRE ROOM dedicated to all different types of pastries beyond your imagination. I might have gained five pounds but gained yet another heartfelt memory that love exists in all pockets of the world. You just have to be looking for it.
