Engagement: Courtney + Chris | Mills Mansion, Staatsburgh State Historic Site, Hudson Valley, NY

I love these two and they are getting married this weekend!!!  This set of photos makes me so happy.  The style, the couple, the water, the sun.  We tried to get this engagement session in for so long, and I'm so happy we were able to sneak it in before the wedding.  I spent an awesome afternoon with these guys at Mills Mansion (gorgeous!) and they are just perfect together.  I am so looking forward to seeing them all dressed up and happy this weekend.  Thanks guys - see you soon!!  Happy weekend everyone!

Engagement: Emily + Will | Lyman Orchards, Connecticut

So, when Emily said that she had arranged with Lyman Orchards to have us shoot their engagement session in the sunflower maze, and also in the same email, let me know that her uncle would let us use his antique car - how much more did I instantly love her?!  Come on, Emily - you killed it.  Gorgeous location, and great couple - we had a blast exploring the (entire) orchard from the sunflowers to the highest point, so much fun.  The next time I see these guys, it will be winter and I'm hoping for just a (little) snow :).  Thanks for a great afternoon guys!

Wedding: Samantha + Tom | Marist College & The Grandview, Poughkeepsie, NY

Oh man, Sam and Tom.  Tom and Sam.  I don't know if I can handle a wedding world without Sam and Tom!!  We love these guys and to be honest, I'm a tiny bit sad that their wedding is over.  That is how good it was (and definitely see the 2nd to last photo in this post for evidence).  Let me give you a little background.  First of all, Sam and Tom are a great couple - loved by everyone, happy, funny, perfect.  And they were a perfect fit for us - so excited to get married, pumped for their wedding, and Sam was so into the details and the photography.  Sam and I have been emailing for what seems like years about all the details of the day.  Flowers, sparklers, boats, signs, we are talking serious details.

And then....Sam breaks her ankle about 1 month before the wedding. It could have been devastating, but Sam, man, she handled it like a champ. That girl rallied.  They said she wouldn't be able to walk at the wedding - she did.  Doctors said she would not be able to dance at all - she laughed at them.  The girl wore a boot and brought a back-up beautiful shoe for photos and that is my kind of bride!   Everything was perfect and the day was full to the brim with love, excitement, wheelchairs, and laughs and we loved every minute of it.

Sam & Tom - you guys rock and I'm beyond excited to post some of my favorite images today for you.  This is probably my largest post to date because there were just too many gorgeous (and funny) ones, I just couldn't not post them.  Much love to you guys!!!

Also, a quick shout out to some great vendors - The Grandview, Turntable Events, and Lavender and Leaf floral designs who helped make the day great!
