fall sessions (october) + the “i do dash”

I know, I know. How can one think about fall in the beginning of August? Well I’ll tell you. My calendar is already filling up for September. We have 7 weddings in September which makes that month limited for engagement sessions and what not so if any of my brides and grooms are considering an engagement session in September don’t drag you feet to book a date asap.

Onto October.. Year after year October has proven to be “the it month” for weddings, engagement shoots and family sessions. Last year in October we had 10 weddings alone and just about every weekday was booked up with engagement sessions and family sessions. I’ll be honest, it was insane, I was behind on the blogs and I lost my mind a bit. This year we capped October off with 8 weddings and we easily could have booked 11 or 12. I also plan on taking on less engagement sessions and family stuff in October this year. So if you’re considering booking an engagement session for October its not too early to contact me. Also I can only take sessions from full service Elario Brides & Grooms at this point (that means we’re already contracted to shoot your wedding). We need to give our full service clients the first stab at booking. The same goes for family sessions, if you’re already a client of ours you too get the first choice at the popular fall dates. One more note on October. Our 2012 Saturdays for October are all booked up as well and we already have 5 weddings, most likely we’ll only take 3 more for October of 2012. Lastly I don’t want any of you to think I’m bragging here, I just want to educate the masses on the month of October and how desirable it is!

Here are some fall engagement sessions for ya! Edda and Mike’s was shot on Oct 7 at an apple orchard, a popular location I started shooting at back in 2006. Check it out.

While we’re on apple orchards here is one from the third week in Oct of 2009. Check it out.

In Lake George actually on September 29th last year. The foliage was prime earlier than usual. Check it out.

Last year on October 8th in Washington Park. Check it out.

October 20th in Vermont. Check it out.

Lastly this one was on November 10th which proves you can go a little into November but foliage is limited. Check it out.

One more thing! If you like to run and you’re getting married we at the New York Wedding Boutique have the perfect 5k for you! There are all types of wedding related prizes to win.
