I am happy to present these touching and romantic engagement portraits of Leah and Will. How they met is a cute story about how Will kept going to a particular yoga class to see Leah again, and asking to go to breakfast afterwards.. then forgetting his wallet (oops– great excuse to invite her to dinner!). They hit it off right away, and it’s obvious these two love each other and have affection for one another. It was also clear right away that Leah, Will and I are a good fit together– they wanted to book me an hour after our consultation meeting! We quickly arranged their engagement portrait session at Mendon Ponds park in time for some fall colors, a beautiful sunset, and some reading and game time back at their home. I look forward to their wedding at the RMSC in 2014, always a totally cool place for a wedding
We had some fun with the milkweeds
Weather was perfect for a sunset.
Even the deer were checking out these guys
We headed back to their home, where their favorite pastimes are reading with one another, and playing board games
Thank you for letting me document your story and your passions and pastimes together

I am glad to finally post the long-awaited wedding photos from Ashley and Mike’s wedding in Geneva, NY. A cool engagement shoot + excited clients = awesome time at their wedding, and today was no exception. The weather was perfect, leaving us lots of time for unique portraits outside, and the venue was beautiful. Thank you Ashley and Mike, it was my pleasure to work with you guys!
Hug from momma
The happy couple
Should Mike smash the cake?
Thank you again for bringing me along to your wonderful celebration.

It is always an honor to photograph a wedding of someone who was a former bridal party and/or family member from a previous wedding. Not only do you get to see them again, you also get to see your past clients and many familiar faces. This wedding had them in spades! I first met Laura two years ago when she was a bridesmaid at Jessica and John’s wedding. Last year, I ran into Laura again at Lalli and Eddie’s wedding at Glenora Wine Cellars, where she brought along her then-boyfriend Justin. It was clear right away that Justin is a tremendously friendly, outgoing nice guy, and a good compliment to Laura’s loyalty and sweetness. I even got to see the couple earlier this year at Molly + Bo’s wedding, where Laura was a bridesmaid (Molly was also a bridesmaid on this day). I got to see 6 former clients on this day!
Laura and Justin got married at St Stephen’s Church right in the heart of Geneva, NY, always a beautiful location for a Catholic wedding ceremony. Their reception was at Club 86 right in the town. Their DJ was Encore Signature Events led by the awesome Shaun Lewis– I cannot recommend these guys enough, as they put on a great party. I was assisted at this wedding by Rachel Gracie, someone whom I always enjoy shooting weddings with.
Thank you for the trust and honor of documenting your big day, Laura and Justin. It was fantastic to see your family and friends again.
