Jess & Joe

Can you imagine a sunny day with 50 degree weather in Syracuse, New York in late January?  For those of you who rock the orange and blue, this seems like a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, because you know how rainy and cloudy and gray Syracuse often is. I guess someone on the top floor really wants Joe and Jess to get married because this is exactly what happened the day we went to photograph their engagement! We started off the session on top of the Crowne Plaza hotel in downtown Syracuse. From the roof you could see all parts of the city. Onondaga lake, Downtown, S.U. hill, the Dome, Destiny, East Syracuse, Onondaga Hill, Solvay, Camillus... we could see it all. Visibility was high and the southern winter light was beautiful. After the photo op on the roof, we went inside to showcase the adorable
"Save the Date" signs Jess made. Later, we went for a walk around Franklin Square. The sun was just hitting the perfect position and Jess's golden yellow outfit gave the photos the perfect amount of pop. We finished off the day underneath some birch trees which is the inspiration for the wedding cake!
