couple's sessions

Although most couple's sessions are used for engagement photos,

they can be used for a variety of purposes other than the standard engagement shoot, such as:

vow renewals & wedding portraits

Whether you're renewing your vows or just didn't have enough time on your wedding day to take full advantage of

all the beauty the Adirondacks has to offer, we can always come up with some valid excuse to put your

wedding clothes back on and head out on an adventure!

proposals

Obviously you're hoping your proposal won't take the entire 90-minute session, and it won't!

What I highly encourage though is that you secretly pack a change of clothes for your soon-to-be fiancé so after

they break down in happy tears, you can do an impromptu engagement session!

Trust me, the flurry of emotions and excitement isn't something that can ever be recreated in subsequent shoots

so take full advantage of this moment!

maternity

I treat maternity sessions just like any other couple's session with the slight exception there might be just a touch more

belly-grabbing than normal. No cheesy maternity poses here!

adventure sessions

Hiking time is included in any session so while we can't get too adventurous with my standard

couple's sessions, you do have the option to add additional hours on so we can really get out into the backcountry!

Discounted rates begin at the four-hour mark and include hikes such as Mount Jo or Balanced Rock.

Six to eight-hour sessions include hikes such as Indian Head, Noonmark, Cascade, Pyramid, etc. We'll determine your hiking abilities and pace and then go from there in creating a custom package as adventurous as you two are!

the complete freedom to plan your wedding weekend exactly how you want to package

Whether you're planning a destination wedding or simply a chill weekend with all your friends and family members, this package offers total freedom to be used however you wish.

rather than give you a 24-hour timeline, think of it this way:

Friday morning, photo coverage begins as your guests embark on a early morning canoe trip.

Lunch is served cowboy-style over a pit of hot coals after your guests return from their early morning excursion. Volleyball games on the shores of the lake ensue. Friends and family spend the afternoon hitting the local trails, relaxing in hammocks, or helping with last minute wedding prep.

Friday night, a huge al fresco dinner is set up under strings of edison bulb lights. A live band plays as anticipation for the next day builds.

Saturday dawns bright and early. One group sets out for a sunrise hike. Another group hangs back, enjoying a leisurely morning of pampering. The day unfolds unhurriedly. The timeline is relaxed and things naturally progress rather than being held to a strict sequence of events.

The day ends on a high note with revelry as the two of you tie the knot.

Sunday morning, you throw your wedding clothes back on. Your dress is dirty now so who cares? We head out on an adventure and take some epic sunrise shots as you enjoy your first morning as a married couple.

Photography coverage wraps up during brunch as you soak in one last meal with those who have traveled so far to be with you this weekend. And you are so, so grateful because you know each and every guest has been photographed and you'll have these memories to cherish for a lifetime.

obviously every wedding is different.

Every couple has different expectations. venues and locations are unique.

travel times vary.

these timelines are meant to give you a

general idea of what to expect from each package and are in no way timelines

set in stone for your day.
