I have to say that when a couple wants to hire me for their barn wedding I adore them for that reason, but when they’re as great of humans as Laura and Kevin are, I adore them ten times more! Their wedding day could not have been more perfect. Laura and Kevin got ready together down the street from the barns at the quaint White Oak House and the lighting was ideal all day. The storms passed by as we prepared for the ceremony and the air was the crisp of late summer. Guests flowed freely between the barns all afternoon and in the evening, the fire pits, where folks roasted some marshmallows and gathered for some laughs.

Venue: Historic Barns of Nipmoose, Buskirk, NY | Caterer: Mazzone Catering, Clifton Park, NY | Band: Silver Arrow Band, New York, NY

And many thanks to Tiffany Chapman for championing through the day with me, as at 39 weeks pregnant, I could not have done it without her!

Stasia and Sam were back home in the Berkshires for the weekend completing some wedding planning necessities, so we decided to do their engagement session before they headed back to New York City. Sam’s parents have a cute property on a dirt road in Great Barrington so we took advantage of the early morning light in the beautiful woods and gardens surrounding the house. I am very much looking forward to photographing their wedding at Hilltop Orchards this October!

When Christina reached out to me to document Lilyan as her first birthday approaches, I was thrilled! Erik and Brian (my husband) have been friends since grade school and I love watching our friends transition into parenthood. It’s really the greatest thing! My sweet neighbor let us use her GORGEOUS property right across the street where golden hour lights up her orchard trees, fields of wildflowers, and beautiful landscaping in the perfect setting for a family session. I think I’d let Lilyan bat those baby blues at me all night, but we wrapped up as she neared her bedtime!
