There’s something about being there for people on some of the most important days of their lives. Their excitement and joyful spirits are addicting! I think that’s why I’ve taken a liking to the Fresh 48 sessions so much. I want to say it’s lower pressure, which it is, but you still have a very […]

Alex and Rachael’s elegant wedding day reception was held at The Sinclair in Skaneateles, NY. We had the pleasure of photographing the first wedding ever at The Sinclair, so Team SHP was super stoked to return to the venue to see what they’ve been up to and what the couple’s careful planning could do with […]

It’s hard to believe that it’s been a couple of years since we’ve photographed a wedding at the Wolf Oak Acres estate. The last time we were there it was a cold, snowy October! We were happy to return for Sarah and Michael’s early June wedding because the property has such pretty places to wander […]

I’ve gotten the chance to explore new places quite a bit with my recent engagement sessions! A lot of love stories starting on college campuses and my couples wanting to relive those moments, which is super sweet! There’s not much that’s better than exploring a new place with my couples! Vikka and Chris’s session was […]

Jackie and Dan returned to Dan’s childhood stomping grounds of Skaneateles, NY to get married surrounded by family and friends at The Sinclair. They currently live in Arlington, VA, so they enlisted Megan Hiltbrand of MLH Events to help them plan their wedding from 370 miles away, and we are so happy and lucky they […]

We were nearing Spring. Basically on the edge of it! We could almost taste it. We could definitely smell it! You know, the freshly uncovered mud smell from melting snow. Yeah, that smell! I think for the pre-spring *everything is wet and brown everywhere* look outside, we rocked it! It almost looked like autumn shoot. […]

Team SHP started the season off with Liz and David’s warm and thoughtful wedding day at The Cannery in Vernon, NY. It was certainly warm in more ways than one! Not only was it on the loveliest, sunniest day of the year yet, the people surrounding Liz and David were so welcoming of us and […]

Something I’d like to get out to the world is that we’re starting up newborn sessions again! My dear friend Caron has been a photographer for many years now, and after having two kiddos of her own, being a mom to them and enjoying taking photographs of her family, she’s slowly making her way back […]
