I am so excited to put Kaitlin and Matt on the blog today!
I have been working non-stop and have been either in my office editing or out on a photoshoot. Life is really, really, really good right now. I love doing what I do and am forever grateful for my amazing clients who help keep this ball rolling. Photography is truly my niche, my everything and my happy place. I am so incredibly passionate about what I do and I hope that’s apparent when people are looking at my wedding and portrait galleries.
ANYWAY! I’m done being a complete sap for the time being.
Kaitlin and Matt met me at Chenango Valley State Park which is right outside of Binghamton, NY. If you haven’t been here, I highly suggest visiting. Chenango Valley not only has great spots for portraits but it also has hiking trails, two beautiful lakes and a swim area. I like to take my daughter here in the summer when I can’t make it to the Adirondacks so I can PRETEND that we’re in the Adirondacks. It’s a really beautiful place.
We traipsed around the swim area section of the park and took some really gorgeous engagement photos. These are some of my most favorites.
Laughter is one of my most favorite things to capture. It’s always easier when I get a couple who goof off with each other.Kaitlin is seriously so beautiful. I can’t EVEN. She’s going to be the most gorgeous bride. Kaitlin and Matt brought their wolf puppy. SUCH A SWEET GUY! He was so well behaved. I absolutely love it when my clients bring their dogs. I don’t even care when they’re NOT well behaved. I currently have two dogs, 5 cats and hold a wildlife rehabilitation license. I love animals and in another life probably would have been a veterinarian.
So if you’re questioning whether or not you should bring your dog to your next photoshoot with me, the answer is absolutely YES.
I LOVE Kaitlin’s dress. I asked her where she got it and she told me Lulu’s. I obviously went directly on the site to shop when I got home and saw some dresses that other clients have worn in the past. There’s so many pretty things I don’t even know what to buy first. I love a good black and white.
Sweet puppy!I’m a huge fan of natural lighting. Flash is cool when you need it but you can’t beat that natural glow look. This day was actually a touch overcast which worked out really well because the exposure is so easy to control. If you have a shoot booked and the day isn’t sunny, don’t fret. Photographers actually LOVE that. (For the record, I love shooting in high sun too. It’s just harder to work with and limits the number of angles you can use.)I had so much fun working with Kaitlin and Matt. These two are having a winter wedding and I’m so excited to be there to photograph their wedding day!
