Watertown, NY Elopement: Cecilia + Jonah

Up here in the north country, time feels like it moves a little slower. We don’t have the bustling cityscapes like your typical urban metropolis. But that doesn’t mean that we don’t have some amazing downtown locations for elopement photos. Firstly, not only is The Lincoln Loft & Studio a gorgeous venue right in the center of Watertown, NY, but it’s nestled right in the heart of the downtown square – meaning there are many tucked away and hidden locales for portraits all within walking distance. So if you’re in need of an event venue, it is absolutely worth while to scope out The Lincoln Loft & Studio.

Also, fellow photogs, don’t let shooting in direct light deter you! We set off in blazing 90 degree weather at 3 in the afternoon and were still able to capture some breathtaking shots. You just have to get creative, or find areas tucked away with some shade. Not only did I love creating with Cecilia + Jonah, but I learned so much about the capabilities of my new camera body/lens set up.

I recently moved from DSLR to mirrorless, so be expecting a review on that here in the future.
