We did it! I’m a married lady. It’s been a whirlwind and a busy last few months. Our wedding was lovely and a week after it we went on our honeymoon to Playa del Carmen!
Getting married means I’ll have to spend some time on the other side of the camera! Obviously being a photographer, good wedding photographs are pretty important to me. For our photographer we went with Sarah Wintle. I have had the pleasure of working with Sarah on Auxiliary Magazine shoots; she has modeled for me for a few different features over the years. Not only is she a wonderful model, she’s a wonderful photographer, with a true talent for journalistic, documentary style wedding photography.
A couple weeks ago we met up with her at Chestnut Ridge Park for an engagement photo session. An engagement session is a great way to get comfortable with your wedding photographer and now I feel very confident that working together in reverse roles for our wedding will be a lot of fun. Here are some of the highlights from our shoot!
Wedding planning is in full swing! I have been a busy lady. We jumped right into everything and started by looking for the perfect venue. We knew we wanted something with character and beauty so it would stand on its own and wouldn’t need tons of decorations. That helped us narrow our list down to six venues. Some were managed by the same companies so that meant just four venue visits.
I’m engaged and I’m getting married! A few weeks ago my boyfriend, co-homeowner, and Auxiliary Magazine co-editor asked me to marry him during a cozy evening in on a cold winter night. It was sweet and simple and after ten plus years together, we are very excited to really be planning the wedding we have been playfully talking about for so long.
It’s winter now, but I am dreaming of summer hiking and exploring parks. Over the summer we went to Como Park in the suburbs of Buffalo, NY. We tried to follow a rather vague trail and kept loosing the path then we wandered through the frisbee golf course to an odd little lighthouse.
