I just love engagement sessions like this! Good light, a great looking couple and cool locations make it fun for sure. Back in the fall we tried to connect for an engagement session but the weather and my crazy fall schedule never jived. I’m glad though because there is something way more interesting to me about shooting on a warm summer night. This wont be the last time you see these two on the blog though! We’re shooting their wedding in just 8 weeks! I had a blast photographing Amanda and Kevin and look forward to photographing their big day! Thanks guys, see you soon!


The colors they picked were great! So summery.


I just love shooting in downtown Albany. It’s like my second studio I swear.

Love that cobblestone..

That good old configuration in some sweeeeeeet light!

seriously this light was bananas.

a change of clothes and some more good light.

another spot that I love..

As beautiful as downtown is sometimes its the simple things that work. Love this image!

Amanda, you’re going to be a beautiful bride. Makeup by Flawless by Tina.

Love this spot.

More good light..

All the color in this image is insane. Not to mention the hot couple.

Love the butter light!

My facebook teaser.

and of course my engagement session isn’t over until I get my token “bling shot”. See you Labor Day Weekend!
