A Waterfall Elopement at Taughannock Falls State Park

waterfall elopement at taughannock falls state park in ithaca upstate ny

I had been dreaming of photographing an elopement at Taughannock Falls State Park (Ithaca, NY) for I don’t even know how long. So when the opportunity arose, especially with a couple as beautiful + incredible as Meredith and Chris, I was like a kid in a candy shop.

We wanted to keep the day simple. No dramatic florals or a heavy gown… just a couple in love.

Under a canopy of trees overlooking the gorge, these two vowed to continue loving and supporting one another. They reminisced on places they’ve traveled together and memories they’ve crafted, and promised to continue seeing one another as a shelter and source of inspiration.

We laughed, shared a glass of champagne, and explored this beautiful space together. We had no timeline, no restrictions, no worries. Our time together was nothing short of magical, and I can only hope that every elopement experience I’m able to share with my future couples can be just as striking.

Thank you, Meredith and Chris – I have endless appreciation and love for you both.
