Oh, friends! I don’t know about you but I am so ready for Spring!! But in this time of waiting I’ve been really challenged to keep seeing the beauty around me and to keep lingering in the season we’re in. And I’ve done some gorgeous winter engagement sessions that have helped me to see that beauty!! One of them was these two: Christine and Kevin. Seriously, this day couldn’t have been more perfect!
A friend of mine in Central New York referred Christine to my work and the second I met them, I was drawn to their fun personalities and love for each other! They live in New York City now, but are both from the Syracuse area. They grew up so close to each other but didn’t meet until later in life!! And of course, they clicked and the rest they say is history!
I am so excited for their wedding in the Finger Lakes this fall! They love traveling and wanted their wedding to have a taste of home and be an experience for their guests And so of course, when it came time to planning their engagement session, we planned it so they could come home to the beautiful scenery here in Central New York! We chose Highland Forest in Fabius for more of a wintery woodland feel, and it was seriously just perfect for them!
The stillness of the woods was all around us and the gorgeous light came out for them at just the right time! It was so romantic – I can’t even explain it, you just need to see for yourself! And then we wanted to end at a Christmas tree farm – we ended up pulling off to the side of the road because we saw this gorgeous barn right next to all these Christmas trees! We had such a great day together and the love that these two have shines so brightly. I can’t wait for their wedding this fall! Enjoy Christine and Kevin’s sweet story!
Ahh! And this is only the beginning!
So gorgeous, Christine!

Cuties!! We had to grab one in front of this scenery!

I couldn’t resist when I saw this chopped down tree!! It was made for a ring to rest on it! Haha.
Love the way Kevin looks at her!
That blanket just adds to the cozy feeling!
