Courtney & Clinton – Ganondagan State Historic Site wedding | Victor, New York

There’s a blanket of snow outside my window so today seems like a good day to post this sunny autumn wedding! I’m so excited to share a few photos from Courtney and Clinton’s intimate September wedding. Courtney and Clinton held their ceremony on a hilltop in the Ganondagan State Historic Site. Ganondagan backs right up to their LOVELY backyard so we were able to walk straight from their home to the beautiful, sunny walking trails. After a sweet ceremony officiated by one of Courtney’s high school coaches we headed back to their house for the dinner and celebration. Just before sunset Courtney, Clinton, and I took one more walk back to the State Historic Site and enjoyed taking some golden hour portraits! I had so much fun spending the day with this amazing couple and their kind family. I’m sitting here smiling as I look back through these photos and wishing all the best to the stunning bride and groom. Cheers!

Courtney & Brendan – Church wedding & lakeside celebration | West Bloomfield, New York

I feel so honored that I had the opportunity to photography Courtney and Brendan’s lovely wedding in West Bloomfield, NY. I felt an instant affinity to this couple when we first spoke on the phone and I learned that they now live near Boston, MA – right where my family and I lived for four years just before moving out to Rochester! Such a small world! The day started at the West Bloomfield Congregational Church. We snapped a few pre-wedding photos just before the ceremony, including some very sweet first-look photos for Courtney’s father! The look on his face when he first saw his beautiful daughter was priceless. The ceremony was absolutely lovely especially in the historic, elegant church setting. From there, we took a short drive to Kershaw Park on Lake Canandaigua for photos! What a gorgeous spot! As always I am immensely grateful for the chance to work with such a great couple, and witness their beautiful wedding day. Congratulations lovebirds!

Sam & Jon – Christmas Tree Farm engagement | Rochester, New York

I’m so happy to share Sam and Jon’s sweet, autumnal engagement session today! We met at Pete’s Christmas Tree Farm and enjoyed meandering through the woods and of course in between the Christmas trees! It was such a pleasure spending time with these lovebirds. I am so excited to photograph their wedding next year!

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!
