meryn + joel {engaged}

Meryn and Joel live in Madison, Wisconsin.  While I often travel to my clients for their engagement session, Meryn and Joel opted to have their engagement session in Cooperstown, NY where they first met and will be getting married this fall.  To say that Beth and I had a good time photographing Meryn and Joel would be a major understatement.  If you don’t believe me, just take a look for yourself…


When researching locations, I found the Farmers Museum had an old carousel, and I thought that would be fun.   Little did I know that would be just the tip of the photo iceberg.  The Farmer’s Museum is a small collection of 18th century buildings with a staff dressed in period garb demonstrating life in those times.   After the carousel, we stopped that the blacksmith’s shop and found these awesome hearts made right there on the premises.



I just about fainted with glee when we were introduced to the sheep family.   Here is a mama and two of her lambs…

Loving the love in the lovely light…

Just when I thought nothing could beat the lambs, along come the goslings…

Meryn and Joel thank you for the amazing time in Cooperstown.  We’re so excited for your wedding weekend!  xoxo, Alice and Beth
