The Webster Duck Pond

One of the biggest honors I get as a photographer is return clients. It means so much to me! It’s also amazing to watch previous wedding clients grow into families! Creating new & beautiful chapters in their lives.
 
Not too long ago I got to document Katie & Mike’s snowy winter wedding back home in Syracuse. In just 2 short years, they’ve moved home to Syracuse & started a family! Josie is hilarious and we had an amazing afternoon exploring the Webster Duck Pond. We then wandered over to Meacham park where swings are a favorite and then ended in the most perfect way!
 
When I shot Katie & Mike’s engagement session, we ended the day at Gannons Ice Cream. How fitting that we ended their family session at the same place! Let’s just say Josie is now a fan of ice cream! I can’t get over her cute messy face! AH!
 
Not only was it a great adventure with the Rey family, but it was amazing catching up on life. So much has happened since their beautiful wedding. It’s such a joy and honor to capture this new part of their lives!
 
XOXOXO,
Mabyn

Engagement

I don’t normally suggest starting your engagement session out at a pub, but there really wasn’t anything more befitting for Katie and Mike’s fun filled You + Me session. We met, got a beer, wandered around Armory Square, ate ICE CREAM (*drool* Gannons mmmmmmmm), and oh yeah I got to take pictures of it all! That’s just one of the most prefect combinations for a You + Me session if you ask me.  A big tall order of fun while getting to know each other oh yeah and throw some awesomely cuddly, funny, romantic photos with an artistic flair please! Katie and Mike had story after story to tell me about their time in the ‘Cuse. We stopped by many of the spots where their romance first started. I can’t wait until March when I get to visit and capture their Irish wedding! It’s going to be one heck of an amazing day!

XOXOXO,
Mabyn
