Niagara Falls Wedding Engagement Photography!

Sam and Tony got themselves psyched for their 2021 Niagara Falls wedding with a trip to NY for some wedding planning and engagement photography! Sam found her dress while visiting and I found some amazing angles of these two – I say mission accomplished! We had a beautiful, hot, summer evening for wandering around Goat Island taking pictures. We started in the Three Sisters Islands area overlooking the rapids and worked our way toward the Horseshoe Falls. Niagara Falls State Park has so many different views of the rapids and the falls, I can’t wait to come back and explore other parts of the park with these two on their wedding day next year!

Photographing these shots overlooking the rapids from a nearby pedestrian bridge weren’t the easiest to pose – the rapids are LOUD and there was no way we could hear each other! We did a practice round before I went up there though and it was definitely worth the effort!

I just LOVE the way this area of the park photographs this time of day. Niagara Falls, ON Canada sits so beautifully in the mist with the sun setting behind it!

That’s all for this one! Can’t wait to photograph these two again in 2021 at their wedding at Double Tree by Hilton in Niagara Falls, NY!

Engagement Photography at Akron Falls

Hannah + Mike

When Hannah and Mike first contacted me for their wedding engagement photography session at Akron Falls, we planned for an early spring session. Well… we all know what happened with that (grrrr… ‘rona!), but as soon as photographers were able to shoot again, this session was back in the books! I had worried with this session now happening in summer that Akron Falls would be dried up, but that certainly wasn’t the case this year! The falls were active and gorgeous and so were Hannah and Mike.

We began the engagement photography session at the tennis courts in Akron Falls Park – a spot the couple frequents to play! I have to admit this was the first time I had shot on a tennis court. Since the couple wasn’t planning to actually play tennis, I wasn’t exactly sure what to do with these, but I love how they came out!

From the tennis courts we wandered down to this idyllic little lake for some portraits in front of this bridge. You’d never know we were surrounded by 20 people fishing and blasting country music! (:

You can follow the creek that feeds the little lake all the way up to Akron Falls. But we had to stop along the way for more pictures in the creek first. Such a serene setting!

Many thanks to Hannah and Mike for having me photograph their engagement session! Wandering Akron Falls with you both was a blast! Here’s hoping these two are able to start planning their post-rona wedding soon!
