Kelli & Greg’s Engagement

I am so loving summer, friends!  It’s been so wonderful to enjoy time in the sunshine and by the water myself…and what an extra blessing when I can enjoy it with my clients!  I’ve been on some really fun adventures with them this season!

One sweet experience was for Kelli and Greg’s engagement!  These to are just so sweet!  They currently live in Baltimore, but are dear friends of one of my clients – and they were recommended to me.  (Always such an honor).  And I knew from the moment I talked to Kelli that she was kindhearted and fun, and that I would love working with her!  Kelli and Greg are getting married this winter in Rochester, New York, where her family lives.  But for the summer, her family spends time at their lake house on Mink Island, in the Thousand Islands!  Kelli and Greg take some time off work to drive up there.  They really love boating, spending time on the water and with friends.  It’s really their happy place (I’ve enjoyed following all their summer adventures on Instagram!)

So, when it came time to photograph their engagement session, what a better place than to meet them in the Thousand Islands!  Derek and I were so up for that adventure!  It was so fun meeting them, going on their boat, letting Greg and Derek take turns driving all to catch the magic light, drink sparkling water and learn more about them.  Could it get more beautiful than that?!  They were both so kind and generous, and I could tell what a sweet love they shared.  Then, we went back to their home, and they enjoyed a picnic and wine on the dock together.  It was just a perfect day!

We are so excited for their wedding and to be a part of their journey together!  Hope you love Kelli and Greg’s story!
