I always love an excuse to head back to my native grounds of central New York whenever I get the chance so when Josh contacted me to photograph his wedding, I was ready. Nestled into the little town of Sylvan Beach, we romped around on the beach, through the little amusement park that was closed for the season. It was charming; the day had a particular warm glow to it while these two made promises to one another on the coast of the small lake. The night very quickly turned into a huge dance party with Josh being the main star of it all! He did not prepare me for what kind of moves he had stored away for all his guests. With their art deco themed reception, drinks were overflowing, smiles plastered onto the face of every guest and a general wave of love throughout the room. Thank you to you both for having me on this incredible day!
It's always been such lovely thing to live so close to my family. Close being a relative term, but close enough for me. The Mohawk Valley has always been a coming together point for my rather large family on my mothers side. And thats because my ten uncles and aunts all grew up in this area. Now they are scattered all over the United States but always make trips back to their original home. On this particular occasion, my cousins Arthur & Shannon came down from NYC and my Uncle, Donny from Mississippi. We spent the weekend together eating fish fry's, checking out art festivals and barbecuing it up. It was relaxing, fun and just what I needed. In our small amount of time, we managed to get some family sessions done not only for my visiting cousins, but my sister Brittie, Kyle and my sort of brand new nephew Jackman. There is a cuteness overload here; so warning advised.
