Happy Wednesday, friends! I have been longing to blog this for awhile now, and it’s perfect timing!! Derek and I are headed to the Adirondacks tonight for our annual canoe and hiking trip – so I’m super inspired by all this imagery today!!
I have been wanting to do a styled shoot around a canoe and the Adirondacks for years! In fact, Derek and I almost modeled for an Adirondack photographer last year just to be out in the water on our canoe and get stunning images. So, after we purchased our own Old Town Penobscot canoe, I knew this had to happen!! And I knew that a wedding planner friend of mine, Kate Brown from LoveWell weddings, was also super inspired by the Adirondacks and Lake Placid herself.
I had spoke to Kari a few months before, the owner of Best View Barn, and was super inspired by their space and the idea of doing a styled shoot with them. Then I saw the pond in the back of the property and realized that it would be the PERFECT space for our canoe!
I also met our sweet model Jess over Instagram this winter, and she offered that she and her boyfriend Andrew would love to model for me! So I knew this shoot would be perfect. And even better, Jess had JUST gotten engaged to Andrew a week before our shoot!!
We collaborated with an amazing team of talented vendors, and I’m so proud of them and all the amazing people I work with here in Central New York. Such creativity is happening here and I am so blessed to be a part of it!!
I hope you’re just as inspired by our Adirondack barn shoot as I am and continue to be! Enjoy, friends!
