Adriana and Jordan | Engagement

Emily Grace Photography (1 of 1) copy

I met these two on a sunny day in downtown Oswego. I know, all of you oswegonians can’t believe that the words sunny and Oswego went in the same sentence. We were blessed to have picked a day where the weather was above the teens. Not only was the weather great, but I got to spend time with Adriana and Jordan. From our consult I knew working with these two would be a complete joy! Their laid back and trusting personalities make photographing them a complete pleasure. They have the type of personality where you feel completely comfortable around them. These two are gems, and I am counting down the days until their wedding!

Enjoy the images from these two wonderful people!!

Happy Wednesday Y’all!!!

Young Wedding

As I begin to write this post I can feel slight tears coming. Phew. I have known the beautiful bride for, well my entire life. Our families have been closer than peanut butter and jelly!! Both of our families have shared some truly beautiful memories together. We have done nearly all of our vacations together and spent almost every holiday with each other. Growing up, I always knew that their family loved my siblings and I, as their own children and vice versa. So, naturally it was a joy to hear about Amy bringing this new boy around. I am happy to say Ryan fit in our group just like that. Maybe it was his love for the Thousand Islands which gave him MAJOR brownie points, or more importantly the joy he brought Amy. I remember instantly feeling that he was the perfect guy for Amy. Watching their relationship flourish over the past months has truly been a delight.  Amy is one of those gals with one of the biggest and most caring hearts. I have loved seeing Ryan treasure her for the true gift she is. 

Ryan and Amy it was a pleasure to be part of such a special day in your life. I can’t wait to see you conquer this new adventure of life hand in hand. Luke and I will be praying for you and this wonderful life you have created together!! 

Enjoy the first wedding of 2015!!!!

Winter weddings are one of my absolute favorites. The dreamy light, with the light snowfall, and the fresh crisp air. I love it! But there is a part of me that is always hesitant, because of unpredictable weather of New York. Luckily for Amy and Ryan their day was nothing but true winter wonderland beauty. Amy and Ryan were champs and braved the brisk weather to do all their pictures outdoors. They totally rocked it! Don’t you agree?

Anuj and Chelsea’s Wedding

For all you late night Facebookers, here is Anuj and Chelsea’s stunning wedding. Their day was absolutely perfect. I am still swooning over their images a week later. I knew from the second I met Anuj and Chelsea they were going to be great to work with. Their fabulous engagement story, and fun two wedding adventure had me captivated from the beginning. Their fun loving personalities were a joy to be around, and I feel blessed to have been able to capture their beautiful day. Chelsea and Anuj’s love for each other was so evident and so beautiful to capture. The stunning atmosphere of the gorgeous mountain top wedding was one Emily Grace Photography won’t forget for a long time. We loved being part of your day Anuj and Chelsea! Enjoy the sneak peeks!!

Kings | Family

One of the best  parts of my job is getting to grow closer with my clients, and having the ability to step into so many families lives. I always consider it such a blessing to do any kind of session. Whether it’s an engagement, wedding, family, or senior…someone is allowing me to come into their life and capture a special moment in time. As I watch my little nephew grow bigger and bigger, week by week, it helps me appreciate family sessions all the more. Kids grow up far too fast, and I think it’s so valuable to be able to savor those young years. What better way to do so than with family pictures. I loved photographing the King family. Grady and Ethan were some of the best little boys I have photographed. They smiled and went a long with EVERYTHING. Nice work, Michele and Eric. :) It was so fun grabbing their sweet little expressions as they found all sorts of critters in the water. You guys were naturals and I loved getting to know your adorable family a little bit more.

Kamil and Veronica | Engagement

I met Kamil and Veronica in downtown Syracuse on a beautiful Sunday morning. It was a weekend that kept me running to keep up. Saturday I had a beautiful wedding at Traditions, and then a few hours of sleep and a few cups of coffee later I headed to Syracuse.  I was thrilled to finally meet Kamil and Veronica and shoot in downtown Syracuse.  I had been wanting to shoot in Syracuse for a long time. So, I was thrilled when I chatted with Veronica and we decided on Syracuse. I knew upon seeing them I was in for double the treat, because as you will quickly find out they are STUNNING together. It was so evident from the beginning how much fun they were, and just how crazy they were about each other.  They naturally fell into every pose, and patiently held every position. I LOVED my time with them. Veronica and Kamil, we cannot wait to shoot your big day next summer! Although I wanted to share every picture. I knew I had to limit myself. Enjoy your sneak peeks!

Sara and Jacob | Engagement

It was just a few days after Christmas and I opened Facebook to see that Sara had gotten engaged! What?!?!? Weren’t we just in our friends backyard pretending we were fairies and watching Phantom of the Opera? If I do recall Sara had a major crush on Raoul or the Phantom…? I have known Sara for as long as I can remember, and we truly had some great memories growing up. I can testify that this girl is beautiful inside and out. I am so happy she found her other half. Watching these two together was precious. Have you ever been around a couple and just know they love each other? You don’t need them to say it or convince you. You just know by the way they interact and talk with each other. These two have GOT IT, and it made for some adorable pictures. I loved doing their engagement pictures, and catching up before the big day. Let me tell you folks, these two are SO cute together and their wedding is going to amazing. I could have photographed them. All. Day. Long. But luckily I have their big day to look forward to. Thanks guys for being such troopers and going a long with all my ideas. I can’t wait for your big day Sara and Jacob!

Kari and Corey’s Wedding

Kari and Corey said “I do” with wonderful friends and family surrounding them. Although threatening clouds dared to ruin the day, the ceremony went on without any rain. The moment I met Kari and Corey I appreciated how laid back they were about the process. They took things a day at a time. They dealt with every situation with incredible poise and calmness. Their sweet pastor became ill just a few days before the ceremony, so with a rush they searched for a new pastor. But still with great calmness Kari informed with me ease that she wasn’t worried…..it’d be alright and all work out. Their calmness about the situation paid off, because the day went on without a hitch. They danced the night away under twinkling chandeliers  with sweet friends and family. We loved every minute of being with this couple and photographing their beautiful day.

Aymi and Peter’s Wedding

Have you ever left a wedding wanting to learn to salsa dance? Aymi and Peter tore up the dance floor with their fabulous salsa skills. Their first dance will forever be remembered in my mind. Aymi and Peter were in sync not only with their dance skills but in sync with each other throughout the day. The love these two shared was so rich throughout the day. They continually went out of their way to make friends and family from all over feel welcome. This couple was so very special and I am very excited for this new adventure they are embarking upon. They are a very sweet couple with BIG hearts.

Aymi and Peter we LOVED working with you and sharing the excitement of your day. Many blessing to you both!! Gracias por permitirnos ser parte de su día especial.

Brittany and Jeremy’s Wedding

Have you ever met someone and just loved their personality from the start? Brittany was a blast to work with from the very beginning. She has been truly kind beyond belief throughout the whole process. I knew doing their pictures was going to be a complete joy. They were so fun to work with and their wedding was a BLAST! Let’s just say they know how to have a good party. I love this couple, and I loved this wedding.

Brittany and Jeremy your little family is absolutely beautiful. I wish you all the best on this new exciting chapter of your life. Dana and I loved being able to celebrate with you. Xoxo
