Katherine & Tommy’s Engagement!

Oh, friends!  It’s Christmas weekend and I’m sitting by the fire here while my husband has a work from home day!  I’m so excited to celebrate our first Christmas together tomorrow and then continue celebrating with our families.  It’s been such a year of blessings – more about that later!  But for now…I couldn’t WAIT to share these two and their sweet snowy engagement session!  I thought it would be such an inspiring way to start the weekend!

I met Katherine and Tommy when they were looking for a photographer to capture their engagement!   And soon after I found out that Katherine and I have a mutual friend, Kelly, who has been helping me with my giveaways this past week!  Such a small world!

These two are such an adventurous couple!  They met through a blind date, since Katherine’s sister worked with Tommy and set them up!  And of course, they clicked and the rest is history!  They just bought their first home, and are loving doing life together and with their dog Astrid!  They love fitness and the outdoors and share in that together – Kat is a yoga teacher (and an amazing one from what I can tell!)  So of course their wedding would be just like that.  They decided to marry this May in Costa Rica – which I’m sure will be so so amazing!

For their engagement session, they wanted to capture their love outdoors – so we chose Green Lakes, which has such gorgeous scenery.  And I LOVED Kat’s plaid blanket scarf (if you can’t tell I’m obsessed with plaid this winter – and so is our home!)  They brought Astrid with them for the beginning of the session so we could capture them as a family!  Then, we adventured further into Green Lakes – and they did so well despite it being chilly and windy – you can’t even tell!

Kat was a little sad that it stopped snowing when it was flurrying earlier in the day…and then something amazing happened.  On our way to our second location, Franklin Square in downtown Syracuse, it started snowing!!  It was like out of a movie kind of snow!  As my husband calls it, “Pottery Barn snow” – just enough to make the pictures look AMAZING!  Kat’s red skirt and these two dancing in the streets downtown, with the streetlights and snow – was just the most romantic thing ever!  I’m obsessed with these images and know you will be too!

I hope you enjoy their sweet story – and I wish Kat and Tommy all the love in the world as they start their lives together!
