Friends, I have had such a great week spending time with my brother and sister in law visiting Central New York for the first time!! We took them to all of our favorite places, including these two places I went to with Amy and Mike for their engagement session! It is just gorgeous June weather in CNY right now, and I am so excited to share these photos from my first spring engagement this year!!
I met Amy and Mike through my friend Hannah of H Hawkins Photography! Hannah and Amy met years ago as co-workers and became friends. Now Hannah is one of Amy’s bridesmaids, and as a photographer encouraged her to really value her photography experience. I am so happy Amy and Mike chose me to capture their wedding! They are both super sweet people and also love the outdoors, and are planning a rustic themed wedding at Wolf Oak Acres next spring!
Mike loves to adventure, and I could tell during the engagement session the more risky it was, the more he loved it! Amy was so sweet and would do just about anything as well after Mike got excited about it! We climbed over a few fences at Chittenango Falls in Cazenovia to capture Mike serenading Amy on his guitar. Those images were so sweet and romantic! Amy and Mike had their first date at Chittenango Falls, so they definitely wanted to capture some of their engagement photos there. Mike handmade Amy’s ring, which is super impressive!
Then we went to Green Lakes State Park in Fayetteville, where we could capture more of a vibe with the water but also woodsy photos since they love hiking! They also brought a sweet little picnic setup with a book, guitar and the ring box Mike made for Amy for her ring.
I had such a great time with Amy and Mike and I am so excited to be a part of their wedding process! Here’s to the adventure of becoming one! I hope you enjoy their photographs!
