Lindsay & Stefan’s Waterfall Engagement!

I’m so excited to share this adventure today, friends!!  So, these two may look familiar to you – and they are!!  Lindsay and Stefan are sweet clients of mine and friends of Derek and I :)  I’m so thrilled to photograph their wedding this summer!  But in the meantime, Stefan’s family lives in upstate New York in Ithaca, part of the Finger Lakes region.  So when they told us that they were visiting upstate, we just HAD to do this shoot!  I have been dying to shoot at Taughannock Falls State Park, and just have been so inspired by waterfalls this past year.  And of course Stefan and Lindsey were up for any adventure!

We started at Ithaca Falls, and the water was raging!!  Especially after all the snow melt we’ve had up here!  We tried to start shooting closer to the falls, and it got pretty misty, so instead we headed to this beautiful creek with the falls in the background – I just loved these trees and their beautiful roots!  Such a great spot for these two lovebirds!

Then we headed to Taughannock Falls, and started on the trail leading up to the falls.  On the way there, we passed by another creek with these beautiful sheer cliff walls – and the light started shining through the clouds.  So of course, I said “We have to go catch this!”  We climbed down into the creek area and am so glad we did!  Lindsey said these are some of her favorite photos of the whole day – and I get it, there’s nothing like beautiful light!  Finally, we made it to the falls and they were just beautiful – it’s a really high waterfall and it’s amazing how we were able to walk right up to it.  What a dream!

I hope you love these photographs!
