Amanda and David's Wedding at the Avon Century Barn in Avon New York

Amanda and Dave had their Wedding at the Avon Century Barn in Avon New York on a beautiful summer day. To start the day, Amanda and her crew got ready at A.R. Beauty Bar in Livonia NY, where they had their hair and makeup perfectly crafted with a vintage flair. Once Amanda donned her first incredible dress, we made our way to the first look and wedding portraits at Vitale Park in Livonia. Amanda and Dave's wedding took place in front of the gorgeous Avon Century Barn farm house, with spectacular white columns. Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed vintage lawn games during the cocktail hour. Next, the band began and so did the dancing! Amanda and her friends were incredible swing dancers, and her sparkly dress lit up the dance-floor beautifully. Right as the skies started becoming dramatic, Amanda switched to her second dress, a stunning beaded gown. Throughout the night, Amanda and Dave were surrounded by love, dancing, great food, smiles, and an incredible, hour long sunset. Congratulations Amanda and Dave, it was an honor to capture your spectacular vintage themed wedding! Enjoy your sneak peak :)

Carlotta and Ken's Wedding at the Wadsworth Homestead in Geneseo New York

Ken and Carlie were married on June 23rd at the Wadsworth Homestead in Geneseo New York. The weather was intensely beautiful throughout the day, cloudy while they were getting ready, with a burst of bright and beautiful sun just in time for the ceremony under the mighty Oak Tree on the West lawn. The ceremony was just like Carlie and Ken, full of beauty, laughter, and the clearest sense of love you have ever felt. Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed a cocktail hour on the West Porch while Carlie and Ken had their family portraits captured among the trees. Later, a fun filled reception full of light and dancing rolled on through the night- right alongside a wild rainstorm outside- it felt like being on a boat in the ocean during a storm in a fantastic way! I know Carlie and Ken are lucky, because the rain let up for perfect portrait pockets surrounding sunset. We got incredible skies and a fog (discovered by Ken) like we've never seen at the Homestead. We took photos right into the night outdoors, they're a must see. Congratulations Ken and Carlie, we feel so lucky to have been a part of your big day! 

Chirag and Daisy's Maternity Session in the Arnold Arboretum in Boston MA

After taking Chirag and Daisy's engagement photos at dusk in the Boston commons in 2016, I was so delighted to hear from them again to capture this special moment in their lives. We met close to sunset in the Arnold Arboretum, finding a beautiful tropical looking expanse for the first part of our session. Later we explored the arboretum a bit, finding some beautiful light green bushes and gorgeous lighting. Congratulations Chirag and Daisy! I cannot wait to meet your little one!

After exploring Slovenia, and a little bitta Italy (Udine and Cividale del Friuli), we made our way to Croatia. It was wild how much hotter, brighter, and dryer it was. We could barely keep our eyes open without dark sunglasses! Here is our itinerary along with some of my favorite photos!

Slovenia Nature Adventure and Road Trip!

Slovenia is by far, without a doubt, one of the most incredible places I have ever been. I would highly recommend a spring visit, as it was before the tourist season, which made the 1.2 lane swerving, cliff flirting roads, a little less scary. Also, everything was in full bloom, and the birds were singing! Once you get there, the prices are amazing, and the food is the best I've ever had. We ate gourmet every day for around $15 per person! Here's a look at our itinerary and some of my favorite photos:

Day 1: Wake up in Zagreb, Croatia; Drive to Ljubljana Slovenia for lunch- try to catch it when they have an amazing street gourmet food festival!; Arrive in Bled; Dinner at the Amazing Garden Village - a great place for Glamping! 

Day 2: 5:30am Sunrise hike to Mala Osojnica; Drive to Bohinj lake for some amazing reflections; a hike up to Slap Savica; A wild drive to our adorable air bnb in Podmelec Slovenia in a converted farm house

Day 3: Brunch at Kamp Lazar; Hike Slap Kosjak (most special hike on the trip); Drove to Triglarski National Park in search of Cerkev Sv. Suha na Javorci but Carol's toe was injured and it was raining, so we opted out of the walk up the hill and explored some nearby mounds and ruins; Dinner in Most na Soči; Sunset in Podmelec
