hello from the east side

good afternoon!

whenever i travel and am stuck in any airport, my favorites are those with free wi-fi. :) let's hear it for something FREE!! (yeah!) my flight out of new york back to portland has been delayed a few hours, which is no problem since originally i had a 4.5 hour layover in newark... so i found myself a quiet corner with an electrical outlet and am trying to catch up on email and such while i wait. i realize it's been a heck of a long time since i've blogged, so here's a random sampling from a few photoshoots i had on the east coast this past week!

the main reason i flew here was for, of course, a wedding. booking a wedding somewhere kind of nails down a specific date that i need to arrive by, and then i tend to book the smaller shoots (families, engagement, senior pics, etc.) around that time. i first met erin and shawn early this year, and shot their engagement photos in the spring at yaddo gardens, in the saratoga region. exhibit a:

they're great. during their engagement session we talked a lot about their animals (i believe they have a few dogs and a few cats between the two of them... :)), their families, and their careers. i loved their fun, easygoing attitudes! this past friday (the 13th!) was their wedding, and as the weather in new york during the month of november can be cold (to put it mildly), they really lucked out. :) their evening wedding was absolutely perfect- here are a few photos from their day.

this trip was filled with this fabulous wedding, a few beautiful families, and lots of quality time with my own family and boyfriend. i have so much more to show you, but it looks like my plane may be taking off sooner than i'd anticipated and i'll need to quit writing for now. more to come! thanks to all the new yorkers who made this trip so awesome- i'll be back again soon!
