Arielle + Lewis | Sackets Harbor Engagement, NY

Last Saturday I took a little road trip to Sackets Harbor for an engagement session (and target run haha). I even made it back home before the sun set! Traveling for this shoot was a huge deal to me because it's the first official time I've been paid to travel somewhere and take photos as an engagement & wedding photographer. I'm so stoked and thankful for this opportunity and many more destination engagements, elopements & weddings!!

I think this shoot was the most fun I've ever had with a couple! Arielle + Lewis are pure fun and probably the nicest people you'll ever meet!! I took their engagement photos in Sackets Harbor, NY, where they met two years ago. She's originally from Salt Lake City, UT and he's originally from Charlotte, NC. They're both in the US Military. Lewis proposed on a rooftop in Israel overlooking Jerusalem. How epic is that?!

Sackets Harbor is the cutest little town and the perfect place for an engagement shoot! We took some shots on the rocks by the water and in a grassy patch right beside a historic battle field. Arielle had some of the greatest props EVER (I'll let you see for yourself below)! They even attempted (and nailed!!) the lift scene from dirty dancing, major couple points for that!! My favourite shoots are the ones where the couple is giggling to themselves the whole time and I over hear something one of them said to the other and it makes me laugh out loud too. These two are definitely in that category!!

Enjoy!
