Traveling to the Adirondack Mountains
There are three regional airports in the Adirondack Mountains: Adirondack Regional Airport, Ogdensburg International Airport, and the Plattsburgh International Airport. If that is pricy, look at flying into Burlington, VT or Albany, NY; both of which are about a 2 hour drive from the mountains.
Sometimes you can find flights for cheaper further away and the driving time can be worth it.

hear it from our couples
"On the day of our elopement, Kelsey delivered with her amazing energy. She’s not there to stiffly pose you, she’s there to document the real moments for you as a couple and while she’ll offer direction when you need it, she’ll awe you by catching all the beautiful, genuine, special, tearful, joyful moments you’ll remember forever."
"Her organizational skills and knowledge of the White Mountain area crafted a perfect wedding day for my now husband and I. I knew I could trust Kelsey from the first meeting we had. She did the location scouting for the perfect ceremony to help allow my limited-mobility dad walk me down the aisle. The post-ceremony hike she did with my husband and I captured the most beautiful pictures that I can't wait to remember forever. I am so glad that Kelsey was the photographer for our unique intimate wedding. She puts her all into each of her clients."
"From the day we had our first meeting with her, my now wife and I knew she was the perfect fit/future best friend! We did not have a lot of direction to give and relied on Kelsey to basically create our day for us. She crushed it, we had such an amazing experience planning the day and felt relaxed and confident the entire time."
