Chittenango Falls State Park Engagement Session | Cazenovia, NY
Meet my 2021 winners of a free engagement session,
Jordy & Jim!
Their session was one of the most challenging
and fun times I've photographed in over a decade
behind the camera.
I knew it would be.
It was only 25 degrees and the snow was knee deep.
As soon as I pulled up,
I asked them how adventurous they were.
I will admit,
even I didn't know the level of adventure
we were about to embark on.
The steep descent down to the falls
resulted in some bloody hand wounds,
sledding on our bottoms
(without a sled)
down flights of ice covered stairs,
and inching along at a snail's pace
down slippery trails.
Once we got down there,
I decided it would be a good idea
to don Jim's heavy boots and wade knee high
in freezing temperature rushing water
with $5000 in gear in hand
in order to get one particular shot.
We weren't able to get close to the actual falls.
The snow was just too deep.
They were mostly frozen anyway.
I'm just glad none of us broke any bones.
Though one of us did tear our pants.
As for Jordy and Jim,
they were such troopers.
They trudged right along with me,
Jim even held me upright most of the way, haha.
And we laughed so hard,
I think I wet my pants,
though that may have just been snow.
Who can know?
Anywho, I'm so glad we did it
because I love these images.
I hope seeing them,
makes this wonderful couple
feel like it was all worth it.
