It’s not even June yet, and we already have at least ten amazing sessions waiting to be blogged! We have been shooting like crazy, and now that the weather is fabulous, we are LOVING it. We knew pretty much immediately upon meeting with Caitlin and Joe, that they were the perfect “Ayres Photography couple” – fun, easy going, hilarious – we had an awesome shoot with them, lots of laughter and good times. :)

Caitlin and Joe are Hamburg residents just like us, so we got to take them to some of our favorite spots around town, starting with our all-time fave, the South Creek trail. I have written about this place many, many times.  We spend quite a bit of time there with Lily, so we know the trails very well.  It’s nothing fancy, but it sure is beautiful.

Our next stop was the old train yard, another favorite spot of ours.  I love that this place is literally less than 5 minutes from our house, and that no one ever seems to mind us being there!  It’s definitely one of the best spots for photos in our cute little Village of Hamburg, and we were psyched that Caitlin and Joe liked it as much as we did!
I love this shot of Caitlin….she’s seriously SO beautiful.  What a gorgeous bride you will be, my dear!!
Could they be any cuter?!  It’s always so funny to me when our couples tell us how non-photogenic they are.  Seriously…almost everyone tells us that!  The truth is that if you are happy together, then there’s absolutely no way that you can possibly not look good in your photos.  Happy is beautiful…being in love is beautiful…laughter is beautiful.  :)
Our next location was a place that we had been dying to shoot for a super long time, but it just never worked out for one reason or another.  It’s another place in Hamburg (along 18 Mile Creek) that we take Lily to run, and it happens to have an incredibly beautiful waterfall, which we believed would make a fabulous backdrop for an e-shoot.  Turns out we were right!!  I adore these!

Caitlin and Joe – you guys are the best! Thank you for being so much fun and so easy to work with! We are beyond excited to be a part of your wedding day…can’t wait to celebrate with you!! Much love, J + B :)
