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!
I've known Raelyn since I first moved to Buffalo for college back in 2009. We immediately clicked with our large group of close friends commiserating over homework, going to concerts or even just making dinner at one another's apartments. Jon soon came into the picture and then never left. He became a fixture in Raelyn's life and we couldn't have been happier for it. The two of them complete each other... no, like they really do! They decided to marry in a place that is dear to them, Long Lake in the Adirondacks. On a beautiful, sunny afternoon I watched these two make the sweetest vows to each other. Full of promises, their hopes but most of all, their abundance of love. Not only is this my job but I truly find happiness in moments like these where I not only get to witness my loved one's biggest days but also curate it for memories to come. Thank you again Jon + Rae for having me!
