Giavanna Cake Smash | Syracuse, NY Baby Photographer

My baby girl is ONE! I didn’t do a cake smash session with my little man, we just had him smash a cake at his party so it was so fun to plan this one! Thank you quarantine! I absolutely love these cake smash sessions. Every baby reacts differently to cake, all sides of their personalities come out, and its too fun to watch and document. And when its your own little one, it just icing on the cake 😀

Here are some captures from her session, hope you enjoy!

Sheraton Syracuse University Wedding | Peter & Nicole

Every moment that happens in our life our sisters are always there ❤ 

Nicole you are absolutely stunning! Your laugh is infectious and you bring so much joy to everyone around you ❤ 

 

These guys were too much fun!

Photobombed Peter’s portraits haha Awesome photo op!

OMG can we just talk about these gorgeous bridesmaids…

Father daughter first looks are so so special.  Nicole’s Dad is the sweetest..

Such a FUN JOYFUL wedding party!

The guys had so much energy figured we would get them jumping! haha

Absolutely love these two together.

“Peter and I met in gym class in 2010. He was a senior and I was a sophomore. We were immediately attracted to one another and shared similar interests. We were introduced through a mutual friend and felt an immediate connection in which we had to get to know each other more. We went on some dates and the rest is history. We have been high school sweethearts since October 16th, 2010. 7 & and a half years and counting and now we are getting married!”

“I first noticed his laugh. He is one of the funniest people I’ve ever met and he has an ability to light up a room with his smile and laugh.” Nicole

 

“I first noticed her smile. I could tell she was different from other girls. She had something about her that made me want to know more.” ~Peter

 

“I love her smile because it is like a ray of sunshine, she just lights up the room and has that genuine happiness about her that is hard to find in most people. No matter how hard times get, she always has a smile on her face and when all else fails, she is the only one who truly knows how to cheer me up. She makes me see the bigger picture in life. No matter what we are doing, we always enjoy each others company and that’s all that matters. She is by far the sweetest girl i have ever met and i can’t picture my life without her. She’s always striving to be the best she can be and makes me want to better myself. I can’t picture my life without her by my side, shes my favorite person in this life.” ~Peter

“I love his personality. He can make me laugh like no other and he has the biggest heart of anyone I know. I love that he would give the shirt off his back for anyone and is very passionate and hard working. He is always working to better himself and I admire that about him. He is always there for me through the good and bad helping, supporting and cheering me on. I love that he makes sure to remind me each and every day how much he loves me and I feel like the luckiest girl in the world. He truly is my best friend and I can’t wait to spend forever with him.” ~Nicole

Stunning florals!

Nicole reaction when seeing the room was so sweet…Stephanie and the staff did an amazing job bringing Nicole & Peter’s vision to life and they worked so hard all night to make their night perfect! 

We worked with Stephanie at Justin’s, she is AMAZING! And so so passionate about her bride and grooms! So happy we caught this moment 🙂 

 

And the party begins!!!

When the bride and groom break out into an amazing REMIX dance! SO SO FUN! 

Beautiful toasts…

We just loved this special touch, a video of these two sharing their story…not a dry eye in the place!

 

WOW these DJ’s knew how to keep the party going! I didn’t even want to leave! 😀 

Best wishes to you both! Thank you again!
