Leah and Will are such a loving, affectionate, tender couple with each other. I can feel the love and respect they have for each other– it was apparent in their engagement photos and is apparent on their wedding day. Also, anyone who has a reception at a science museum is cool in my book
The day started with a first look prior to their outdoor ceremony in Durand Eastman Park. They were both so excited to see one another! The weather was perfect and the vows meaningful. Guests participated in the ceremony by taking a flower before they sat down, then everyone put them together in a bouquet, symbolizing the friends and family’s support of their marriage. The reception was at the RMSC, with live music and a hoppin’ party. Enjoy the photos as I enjoyed documenting their wedding day.

Smiles during the ceremony
I think every couple should skip together at least once
“The cake is my favorite part” – Leah. Om nom nom!

We snuck into the museum for a few more portraits in the exhibits
Sweeeet Caroline… bah bah bah

Laura and Chris are both alumni of RIT (as my wife and I are, go Tigers!) but actually didn’t find each other until after they both finished college. We all liked the idea of heading over to RIT to do some of the portraits, then heading over to Lake Ontario for some sunset photos, as the best way to capture their life stories and their common interests. I am looking forward to being their wedding photographer later this year in Alexandria Bay, near the Thousand Islands, since they love the water, and it’s easy with such a great couple to create awesome images, like we did today.
We managed to sneak into the College of Science (Laura’s college) and take some portraits in the lobby where she spent many an hour studying.
Their respective schools
Some antique camera film goodness
We made it to the beach right at the perfect time as the sun was setting

I’ve anticipated this wedding for a long time now. Back in November 2011, I photographed Kateri and Matt’s engagement session, and they were my first booked 2014 clients. I knew it was going to be classic, fun, cool and charming. It was great meeting both of their large families and friends.. who most definitely know how to put on a party. Combine that with a stylish couple, it’s a recipe for awesome photos. Enjoy
