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.
