When Amanda contacted me about possibly shooting her wedding, I suggested we get together over coffee & chat. Unfortunately they’re based in Texas, so that was a little more difficult than I had initially planned. đŸ˜‰ Luckily, the beauty of technology allowed us to Skype with each other! My gut is usually a good gauge and I immediately knew that Amanda, Bill, & I would get along brilliantly! After they officially booked me for their 2012 wedding, I received an email letting me know when they’d be visiting NY to plan and get together with me for their You + Me Engagement Session. I sent them a reply with some questions & various inspirational links to help them plan (visit the inspiration section of my website to see the same links). To my extreme delight, Amanda & Bill were inspired by a “Water for Elephants” shoot that they saw. So we put together our own vintage / travel inspired shoot!  It’s one of my favorites to date! Thank you so much Amanda & Bill for being inspired & inspiring me! I had such a wonderful time with you both!

I brought my vintage suit cases along, they were a perfect little accent!

Amanda & Bill are bargin hunters after my own heart! Look at those cool bottles! I need to get some.

Doesn’t Amanda look like she stepped right out of a black and white film? Stunning! Alternative career choice? đŸ˜‰

One of my favorites of the day!

My other favorite! So elegant!

For the last part of the session, Amanda & Bill weren’t as vintage, but we kept the trave theme going!

After Med school, Amanda & Bill plan on traveling to Africa to help those with out medical care. Don’t you love them even more now?!

Happy Independence Day everyone! I hope it’s full of  sunshine, BBQ, & relaxation! I thought i’d share with you all one of my favorite things about the country we live in. It’s beauty! America is rich with epic views and Upstate NY is no exception! I spent a lovely evening with Dori & Kyle hiking up & down Treman State Park to get some absolutely stunning photos! We had so much fun! I can’t wait until their wedding in just over a month! Have a wonderful holiday everyone!

xoxoxo,
