a fun lake george engagement session with alex and geoff

I’ve been looking forward to sharing this one for a week. Like from the second I was done shooting it I wanted to blog it. Whats not to love about shooting on Lake George? Especially in Bolton Landing where in my opinion the lake begins to take on more character. Whats also not to love about some good looking people, a boat, water, a dog and some fine clothing to compliment all this? When I pulled up to the house I was stoked. Us photographers get into this state of mind when we arrive at a beautiful location. Its like our eye’s and creative juices get overwhelmed but instead of shutting down we just kill it! At least I hope I did! πŸ˜‰

I must say, I had a great time with Alexandria (Alex from now on) and Geoff. These guys were just fun to be around and easy to photograph. Like I said above the location was great but Alex and Geoff were the ones who made this session wonderful. Ok, Alex’s father, Tom also made it fun. If he wasn’t driving us around in the boat he was firing his cannon off at those big boats that pass by. True story. Although he doesn’t actually “shoot” them (it fires blanks) but the noise is enough to knock you on your ass. If you’re ever up in Bolton Landing specifically around the Sagamore (which is where their 2013 wedding is) and you hear a cannon go off you can bet its Alex’s father Tom yelling “fire in the hole!”. Too fun! I can’t thank you guys enough for having me up to your lovely home for this session. It was also great grabbing a bite after at The Sagamore. Thanks for treating me to dinner!! See you guys soon!
