Ithaca Engagement Photos: Katie and Ruwan

Love

Oh, these two! Katie and Ruwan contacted me last Spring, right before I went to Africa, for their wedding this year at the Inns of Aurora. Together we scheduled their Ithaca engagement photos for the Fall in order to take advantage of their stunning alma mater, Cornell University.

We met in person one stunning October morning and they showed me all of their favorite places on campus, including the awesome concert and view from the clock tower! I’ve been to Cornell many times, however I never knew about this awesome opportunity to climb the steep stairwell and hear the organ played.

Afterwards, we snuck down the hill to the bottom of the gorge to capture the essence and beauty of Ithaca with one of it’s many waterfalls. Ithaca is Gorges, after all! Ha. Katie and Ruwan were easy going, easy to pose and the two just laugh and laugh together. It is so easy to see why they fell in love while attending college at Cornell. Adorbs!

Katie and Ruwan chose to use their engagement photos for a custom wedding guestbook, thank you notes and a very special surprise at the wedding reception. Nope, I’m not spilling the beans! You’ll have to wait and see….

I’m very honored and excited to be the one to document their wedding this summer and I had a blast photographing their Ithaca engagement photos at Cornell University this past Fall. I can’t wait to see what we create together for their wedding photos at the Inns of Aurora in May!
