So often in this line of work I have to ask clients to “just trust me, this will be awesome!” I sometimes get strange sideways looks and giggles as I place people in precarious places and typically situate myself in a position even more questionable. With Jessica and Gian though, it only took a few minutes to realize we were all up for an adventure!
We began at Niagara University, where the couple met as students, then crossed the street to hike in to the gorge at Whirlpool State Park and Devil’s Hole State Park along the lower Niagara River. We may have only had a couple quick minutes of sunshine, but we still had an absolute blast wandering around and getting to know each other. Can’t wait to meet all the friends and family at the wedding this summer!
Anna, Tony and I decided to return back to Griffis Sculpture Park, the site of Tony’s proposal to Anna, for their engagement photography session. Griffis features over 250 sculptures set in fields, woods and ponds throughout a beautiful hilly region just south of Buffalo, NY. I was thrilled to have the excuse to adventure around one of the oldest and largest sculpture parks in the country, but even more thrilled to meet these two – a couple with a natural, magnetic sort of love and light to inspire even the coldest of hearts (:
This was the exact spot where Tony proposed. Nice choice, my friend. (:
Anna + Tony’s personal handshake starts with peace and love. I can get down with this shake.
