When I first met with Katie and Mark, I could tell how absolutely in love they were with each other. Katie, with a zest for life and Mark with his quick smile, the two are a perfect couple. They told me how Mark had asked Katie to marry him at Emerson Park on Owasco Lake in Auburn, NY. She asked if I knew of Emerson or was familiar with Auburn and if I'd consider doing their engagement pictures there. Little did she know that I grew up not far from Auburn and spent much of my childhood there! I jumped at the chance to do engagement pictures Emerson, with its classic, roaring 20's atmosphere. Enjoy the pictures... and try not to smile TOO much!
From the benches to the wrought iron lamp posts and old time water fountain, Emerson Park has the best places for pictures.
One of the things I loved so much about Mark and Katie's engagement session is that I was able to get to know them and their personalities better. Not only do I love getting to know my couples personally, but it also helps me understand how best to photograph them. At the outset, we got a few serious pictures... but it was soon apparent that two of them just could not stop smiling at each other! And of course, this made for amazing engagement pictures!
We almost cancelled their Engagement Session at Emerson Park because we thought it was going to rain. Not only did we have no rain, but we had the big fluffy clouds that lend themselves so well to amazing sunsets!
