This adorable family contacted me for some last minute family photos while they were in town visiting. And surprise, they are from my hometown of Utica! We chatted a bit about where we were all from and romped around in the snow. It was a quick session because it was a brisk morning but I had such a lovely time working with them. I love when worlds collide!
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.
It was such a beautiful day for these two to exchange vows. The perfect temperature and just the right amount of sun. The room was decorated with photos of the two of them from over the years they have been together (which I learned was quite many!) Micheal being the goofy guy he is managed to make everyone laugh through out the entire day. Congratulations to these two! I wish you many more happy years together.
Jessie & Brian are one of the cutest couples I have met. Also quite possibly the funnest too. They had so many people there who love and support them, it was magical to witness. They broke it down on the dance floor and literally cleared out the bar at Saranac Brewery. Congrats to these two and I wish them many happy years together.
