Connor and Jen’s wedding at the 1885 House on private Bear Lake in the Poconos was just like re-living all the best parts of summer camp….but with cocktails. And longer-than-summer romance. And Connor and Jen are the adorable couple that everyone at summer camp wanted to be (plus, they’re also really, really sweet and unique, and completely joyful).

You went to camp, right? In case you didn’t, here’s what I mean: beautiful, giant old lodge houses with mismatched chairs painted all different colors, a surprise ice cream truck, narrow dirt roads, sunshine AND pouring rain, picnic tables and a wooden disc swing right next to the lake, magical stone paths leading down to the water, a huge pitcher of fresh lemonade, tall scrubby grass, singing, walks through the woods, messy ice cream faces, and a dance party with fireworks. It was truly, truly magical, and the exact, perfect, 100% right day for Jen and Connor and all of their sweet crew.

See?  Just like summer camp. (Except, you know, better.) :)

Ohhhh, this wedding. This beautiful, windy, chilly, wild, Scottish wedding. Set at the bride’s family’s inn on Cazenovia Lake near Syracuse, and filled with all of the best details. Really, friends, the best. Like hand-embroidered, passed down through generations table linens, and single stem flowers in perfect little vases, and the tiniest of tiny vintage brides and grooms strolling through a terrarium next to the cake.

I won’t try to do it justice with more words, just scroll down and enjoy. Alex and Ryan — it was an absolute joy of a day. Thank you so very much for having me and braving that wild wind!

p.s. You two are awfully cute together. :)

p.p.s. Just getting back to blogging here after a LOOOOOOOOooooooonnnnngggg (too long) hiatus, so I’m digging through the archives a bit and will be mixing up some slightly older weddings (like this one) and shoots (that I never had a chance to post) with new ones. This will be all kinds of fun, and you will love it. I promise.

Love, love, love this wedding, set simply and beautifully at the gorgeous Keuka Lake State Park in Keuka Park, NY. Around the Corner Catering barbecued the most scrumptious dinner on-site and the amazing Rochele Lacey of Steuben Design Company was the perfect coordinator for the laid-back day on the water. So happy for Jeniffer and Steven — congrats again you guys!

I think one of the biggest honors you can reach as a photographer is when your old high school pals hire you to photograph their weddings. Seriously. Because….to be honest, they’ve seen you at your worst (I mean….high school. It’s bad.) and here they are, years and years later, trusting you with the precious details of one of the most important days they will ever have in their lives. It’s kind of amazing.

Lauren is one of those people. We’ve known each other since 3rd grade. When my family moved to Massachusetts, she was one of the first people I met on the school bus, and for 20 years, our families lived within walking distance of each other. She is sweet and kind and hilarious and even though I don’t know him as well, Rob is pretty great, too. I knew this immediately because he was willing to be up and ready at 5 AM on a weekend morning in the middle of summer to do this photo shoot. Smiling and strolling down a beach at 5 AM. People, this is love.

Lauren + Rob — you guys are adorable. Can’t wait for the big day in September! Let’s find another reason to do a post-shoot beach breakfast. :)

When your sweet little babies grow up into talking, giggling, spilling, screaming, temperamental, loveable tiny people who rule your world at all hours of the day, a really fun thing to do is to get in your car, drive away, and find someone else’s sweet little baby to cuddle & snuggle and ooh & ahh over for a few hours. And if the parents of that bundle of cute happen to be past wedding clients, even better.

Marisa & Chris — congrats on your 5th wedding anniversary! And on creating the most adorable baby ever.
Welcome to this wild, crazy, amazing parenting ride. (It’s a good one, I promise.)
Luke is one very lucky little dude.
:)
