Village of Baldwinsville Engagement | Melissa & Jerryl

On November 5,  2011 they both were at a collage party.  He spotted her from across the room and knew he had to talk to her but couldn’t get up the nerve right away.  However, with some encouragement from friends Jerryl worked up the courage to introduce himself to Melissa, the girl with a smile he noticed immediately, the girl he had to meet.  A casual pizza date, with hours of conversation later they connected and their relationship began.

Just over five years later on December 22, 2016, it was a wintery day in NYC, all the storefronts were decorated for the holidays and the city was lit with millions of lights.  They walked hand in hand through Central Park talking about their upcoming years aspirations, goals, and talked about doing a bucket list.  Sitting on a bench in Central Park Jerryl then told Melissa that wherever they may travel or anything they will do in life that he wants to always do it together.  He got up off that bench and down on one knee and asked her to marry him!! ❤ ❤

Isn’t that just a sweet sweet love story? I am so excited to have a small part in telling it for these two genuine, loving souls.  The morning of their engagement session was filled with laughter, joy, and love.  I thought it was fitting to start it off with a walk through the park to reminisce that day in Central Park ❤

Thank you so much for choosing us to be a part of this new adventure in your lives! Here are a few moments captured! xo Cylinda

Jamesville Beach Engagement | Sydney + Owen

They were in Nashville celebrating her birthday at the country music festival in 2014! Before leaving their hotel to explore the city of Nashville Owen asked her if she wanted her birthday present! That present was an engagement ring and of course she said yes!! They will be getting married this year in September!!

What a beautiful day for an engagement session! We spent it walking around Jamesville Beach and Sydney’s parents home. I loved getting to know these two more; laughing, shooting guns, driving golf carts, and chasing balloons!! 🙂 We have so much in common; these are all things my husband and I do so it made it that much more fun! I cannot wait for their beautiful tent wedding on this amazing property and document the day they say I DO!

Skaneateles, NY Engagement | Janelle + Peter

They both graduated high school and were taking their next step in life, college.  Moving into the dorms they were immediately acquainted since they were neighbors. Janelle + Peter quickly became friends along with many others on their floor.   A friendship that went on for a year began to become something more their Sophmore year.  Almost 4.5 years since that first day of college, an Empire State Building proposal, Janelle + Peter will say their vows in August!

In an effort to beat the rain we started their engagement session earlier at Beak and Skiff in Skaneateles, NY then we headed to Lourdes Camp for a picnic.  They rain came quick but we had fun playing in it!! 🙂  apple orchard engagement, photos, Syracuse, photography, cylinda B photography, Beek n Skiff apple orchard engagement, photos, Syracuse, photography, cylinda B photography, Beek n Skiff apple orchard engagement, photos, Syracuse, photography, cylinda B photography, Beek n Skiff apple orchard engagement, photos, Syracuse, photography, cylinda B photography, Beek n SkiffI LOVE this!  Going into their session I kept remembering our initial meeting.

Love at First Sight

I love hearing how couples meet and there is something so special about Chase and Tara’s story…They lived in the same building/quad in college but it wasn’t until 10 years later that they officially met.  It’s amazing how two people can be put in each others lives and not even know that all those years passing each other in the halls that they were glancing at their soulmate.  Then 10 years later they are put in each others lives again when Chase went into where Tara worked and they immediately hit it off and now they are becoming husband and wife this year!

Although it was -10 degrees during their engagement session it was filled with laughter, goofiness, a frostbite scare and a LOT of cuteness!

We promised Chase a drink if he braved the cold for a little bit and we had to get some shots at Al’s Wine and Whiskey Lounge!IMG_6749-Edit IMG_6758-Edit-Edit IMG_6770We loved this sign, but we couldn’t figure out the honest face face! But lots of laughs trying to come up with one! 🙂IMG_6846-Edit IMG_6868-Edit

Gillie Lake Engagement | Modern Day Meet-Cute

A meet-cute is the moment in a movie where a couple meets for the first time in a unique, unlikely way.  We are hearing more and more every day about people meeting online and that there are times these couples find their best friend, soulmate, and partner and become husband + wife! I was so excited to hear James’s + Trisha’s story about meeting online and that they found each other in the midst of their busy lives.  They are such a sweet, beautiful couple and we had so much fun trying to stay warm on this below zero winter day in Syracuse!

A Walk Downtown-Engagement Session

It was a crisp winter day in Syracuse photographing Rob + Liane’s engagement session.  When I asked them what their favorite things to do together, I just loved their response! They said “everything! Literally everything is better when your with your best friend” and that showed today! Although freezing outside, fingers numbing, faces freezing, it couldn’t take away from the moments they had together; laughter, love, and silliness between these two was infectious!  I cannot wait to tell the story of their wedding day!
