I've been photographing Joe's family for a few years at their beautiful lake home on Skaneateles Lake. I received a message from his sister letting me know Joe had driven up in his Mercedes van with his girlfriend and had proposed! They were looking to have an engagement session at the same overlook where they got engaged. It was perfect timing because I was photographing Joe's family that same week. There is something unexplainably sweet about doing several sessions with one family. There becomes this deep connection where I feel like it's like meeting up with old friends!
I met Claudia and Joe at the Skaneateles overlook the spot where Joe proposed on top of his van. With a strong haze and overcast weather, we weren't able to see the lake but we had some pretty incredible light. These two were an absolute dream to work with. Not only are they stunning together, but they are some of the kindest individuals I've had the pleasure to photograph. Enjoy some of my absolute favorites from their session.
