Lisa + Zach's Harro East Wedding | Rochester NY Wedding Photographer

Late last year, after a rainy, cold but successful engagement shoot in the Niagara Falls gorge, I told the story of how Lisa and Zach met. Fast forward to today, and it is apparent how much it means to each of them to be marrying the other. I just knew this wedding was going to be full of wonderful authentic moments, both heartfelt and exciting. Given ample time, we also made awesome portraits to go along with it. That there were two past brides and grooms of mine there was just a cherry on top.

Lisa was overwhelmed with joy walking down the aisle. Later, Zach was the same

The beautiful interior of St Boniface Church in the south wedge, a great place for a Catholic wedding in the city of Rochester.

Always my favorite moment of any wedding- I call it the "victory walk" and you can see the expressions of joy on both of their faces.

One of my favorite authentic-on-metal 1860's style collodion wet plate tintypes I've ever made. It'll be hard to hand this over to them.. but it will be their family heirloom.

Alicia + Tim's Engagement Photos | Rochester NY Wedding Photographer

Alicia and Tim are clearly in love,  and have a playfulness that made our engagement photo session go smooth and easy, despite drizzly rain the whole time. I can tell already that their wedding will be a blast to be at. From Mendon Ponds where we brought Chino along for a few photos, we wrapped up the session at the Genesee Brew House nearby high falls (and a drink). Enjoy!

After seeing Claire's awesome senior portraits, Alex commissioned a session of her own, and brought her easygoing personality and fun. Claire came along to assist, played some tunes for Alex, and we made some kick-butt senior portraits around Village Gate.
