Samantha & Aaron – Finger LAkes Wedding | Penn Yann, New York

A couple months ago, Samantha and Aaron contacted me about photographing their intimate Finger Lakes wedding in August. I was originally fully booked on their date, but due to another couple cancelling their wedding I was all of a sudden available and serendipitously had the opportunity to work with Samantha and Aaron – what an amazing silver lining!

We began the day by taking some photos at Vineyard View Winery in Keuka Park, New York. It was a DREAM location. I loved wandering through the grapevines and capturing Samantha and Aaron’s heartfelt first-look images there.

The ceremony and reception took place at Abandon Brewing Company just over the hill in Penn Yann, New York. I’d never been to Abandon before, but I was immediately blown away by the views. I can see why Sam and Aaron love it there!

I’m so happy for this amazing couple! Congratulations lovebirds!

Marcus & Brianna – Highland Park Engagement session

Wow – all of a sudden it feels like summer has come to a close and fall is upon us! I’m loving looking back through Marcus and Brianna’s sunny engagement session at Highland Park! We had so much fun walking around the park, exploring Highland Park’s beautiful greenery, and chatting away. These two are so warm, so genuine, and clearly SO in love. Cheers to Marcus and Brianna!

Brennon & Iman – Backyard Wedding in Honeoye Falls, NY

A couple weeks ago I had the joy of photographing Brennon and Iman’s beautiful, intimate backyard wedding in Honeoye Falls, New York. Brennon originally contacted me for engagement photos, but I was very happily surprised when their scheduled engagement session evolved into a wedding ceremony! It was a beautiful celebration of an adorable couple. I’m so honored to have been able to document this special day! I’m always, ALWAYS so grateful to the couples who trust me with capturing such precious memories. Wishing Brennon and Iman a lifetime of happiness and love! Cheers!

Lauren & Alex – Rochester, NY Engagement Session

Back in July I had the honor of photographing Lauren and Alex’s engagement session in Rochester, New York. We explored Highland Park and then Lauren introduced me to the Sunken Garden at Warner Castle. I love finding new romantic spots! These two were so sweet and fun to work with. It was clear upon meeting Lauren and Alex that their wedding day will be filled to the brim with joy – I can’t wait to photograph it. Congratulations lovebirds!

Taylor & Mike – Backyard Wedding in Webster, NY

This wedding season has been so different from what any of us could have imagined.  My heart breaks for all the brides and grooms who’ve had to change their plans, postpone their dream wedding, or cancel their event entirely.  As a small business, it’s been tough.  However, as in all situations there are bright spots.  Taylor and Mike decided to postpone their wedding reception until next spring, but they decided to hold a very small ceremony for their close family in Taylor’s parents’ backyard in Webster, NY.  I am SO glad that they asked for me to be there to document their ceremony.  It was pure joy to watch this kind, loving couple become husband and wife.  Taylor and Mike, I couldn’t be happy for you and I am so excited to be there for your wedding celebration in 2021!

Taylor & Mike – Highland Park, Rochester Engagement Session

Wow – life has gotten busy over here.  The fall seemed to fly by as we continued to acclimate to our new home here in Rochester, NY.  Then the holidays were upon us with all the bustle and joy that season brings.  In addition to settling ourselves in our new community, we’ve been laying the seeds for our photography business here in Western New York.  It has been so fun to meet the wonderful brides and grooms who have entrusted us to photograph their weddings in 2020!  One of those lovely couples are these lovebirds – Taylor and Mike. I can’t wait to document their special day this coming summer.  I’ve been meaning post these on the website for a while now – but as I said, life has been busy!

Dianna & John – Glen Iris Inn, Letchworth State Park Wedding

I am very excited to share our first Western New York wedding today!  Dianna and John tied the knot at the beautiful Glen Iris Inn at Letchworth State Park.  Being new to the area, we had never been (or really heard about) Letchworth.  We were amazed.  Teeming with natural beauty, waterfalls, and wildflowers this was one of the most gorgeous wedding venues one could image.  The romantic backdrop highlighted the joy and love that emanated from the bride and groom.  Their wedding was fun, sweet, and oh so PRETTY.  Congratulations again to this great couple – cheers to Dianna and John!
