eliza + chris {engaged}

I recently had the pleasure of photographing this engagement session with Eliza, Chris and their adorable puppy Remy in Syracuse, NY…

Could these three be any cuter?


Chris had a little surprise for Eliza.  He is definitely a keeper…

This next shot is a favorite of mine…

We concluded the session with a few romantic silhouetteish (yes, I made that word up) photographs…

If you missed my earlier post of Eliza and Chris’ little stop motion sneak peek, be sure to check it out here.

kathy + marcel {getting married}

This spring Beth and I lucked out with a beautiful day to photograph  Kathy and Marcel’s engagement session in B’ville.   Since that wonderful afternoon, I’ve discovered that Kathy and Marcel are super sweet and funny!  Turns out they live just up the street from me and I’m delighted to call them friends.


Love the blossoms Beth captured…

This is my favorite shot of the day…

In just two days these two are becoming “Mr. and Mrs!”

Kathy and Marcel, we are so excited to see you on Saturday!  xoxo Alice

So honored that the lovely and talented wedding planner Kate Lemos Brown of Lovewell Celebration Design is featuring Meryn and Joel’s  Cooperstown Engagement Session on her inspiration blog the Lovewell Post.

Embarrassing as it is, I feel a bit like the little piggy from the Geico commercial, when  looking back on this incredibly fun engagement session with Meryn and Joel and all the baby farm animals at the Farmer’s Museum in Cooperstown.

giovanna + christian {married}

On June 11th, Giovanna and Christian said “I do” amongst their closest family and friends, some of whom had traveled half way around the world to be there.  Beth and I had the immense pleasure of photographing it all.

Giovanna and Christian are the sweetest people, and they had some lovely details to their day.  Just look at these gorgeous letterpress invitations by Bella Figura at Boxcar Press…

undefinedundefinedundefinedAll the folks in the b/w image on the right below traveled from Giovanna’s home country Italy!  Not only was the group super good looking, and stylish, they were a ton of fun as well!  I tired to pick up a few Italian words for the day.  Amicci de Italiano…

Loved these beautiful bracelets that all of the bridesmaids received as favors from Giovanna…

These two are so dang cute!

Christian’s new father in law presented him with these cufflinks at the rehearsal dinner, and I love Giovanna’s dress detail and bouquet!

For their wedding favors, Giovanna had all of these porcelain vessels hand painted.  Don’t you love these photographs that Beth made…

For a very long time now, I’ve wanted to go to Italy!   Now that I’ve had the pleasure of working with my first Italian bride, I’m sure I have to go there.  I’m just hoping it is sooner rather than later.

Giovanna and Christian thank you so much for your kindness, generosity, and most of all your open hearts!  We love you. xoxo, Alice
