Canandaigua Lake is super close to Rochester and has so many hidden gems that are perfect to plan for engagement session or couples shoot for!

Conesus Lake is local to Livingston County and one the my favorite lakes! My husband and I absolutely love packing up a picnic talking our dogs to Vitale Park to enjoy the sunset, take in the pretty views while or dinner, and walk around the wonderful park with our pups. It is a gorgeous location for engagement photos!
Keuka Lake is an absolute GEM in the Finger Lakes Region. It also offers so many different options and things to do for your engagement session! Are you two wine lovers? Perf, let’s hit up your favorite winery and take in the views with drinks! Keuka Lake State Park is a great option to get close to the water, and even go for a swim if you’re up for it!
Hemlock Lake is probably my personal favorite lake in the Finger Lakes. The views are absolutely unreal and it is such a quiet and secluded spot. Hemlock Lake Park is the perfect spot for engagement photos because there is a beautiful trail right up against the water the gives the best view over the valley. There are also different hiking trails and open field close by!
