I’m feeling extra grateful to have had the opportunity to photograph Kendra and Colin in the place that means the very most to them, home! I’ve always believed the more personal the photos are, the better, so photographing this in-home engagement session was a great opportunity to not only document this time in their lives, but also encapsulate this place they’ve put so much labor and love in to for the generations to come. Thanks for having me over you two!
I’m typically the one encouraging couples to get a little adventurous with their photo shoot locations, but this place was all Emily and Chris. They had visions of a snowy pine forest and hiked themselves all over western New York looking for the spot that spoke to them. They eventually landed at Erie County Forest and knew it was the place, so they got their most glamorous outfits ready for the hike (because when else?!) and then it was just a matter of waiting for the snow.
This shoot was also a special opportunity for me to test out some new equipment! Special thanks to my friend and fellow photographer, Aleksey Sergeevich, for letting me test out this beautiful lens, the Canon 135mm F2! It’s a gem for sure!
