Megan + Jim's Sodus Point NY Engagement Portraits | Rochester NY Wedding Photographer

Take an engaged couple who are affectionate, relaxed, sociable, fun, and up for anything, and you get portraits that are totally awesome. Good thing all my clients are like this, especially so with Megan and Jim. We went around Sodus Point and Sodus NY to take these engagement portraits (even did some portraits on the pier and the beach, along with their boat) and created some real art this evening. Weather and light were spot on perfect too... couldn't have gone smoother. I look forward to shooting their wedding next year!!

Some of the fellow boaters who knew them both photobombed us when they were walking by

While this photo is nice, it also has a little extra meaning. One of the things that I do for clients is create images that have "insider meaning" for just them or their close circles of friends and family. This private knowledge adds tremendous personal value for them.

In the background of this photo is Chimney Bluffs, where the ashes of Jim's mother were spread. They grew up in the Sodus area and this location is a perfect spot on Sodus bay to commemorate the memory of her in the engagement portrait session.

Sarah + Toby's Little Theater Wedding | Rochester NY Wedding Photography

With a movie themed wedding ceremony at The Little Theater in Rochester, Sarah and Toby had a show to remember. His father was the officiant and had some touching as well as hilarious moments- I can see where Toby gets it from. They both are such fun, outgoing and engaging people that the dance floor was packed with joy and smiles all around. I am honored to have documented the celebration and preserve the memory for Sarah and Toby for years to come.

Amanda + Seth's Ventosa Vineyard Wedding | Geneva NY Wedding Photographer

From day 1, I knew this was going to be a great celebration. Amanda and Seth are kind, caring, friendly people with awesome friends and family. I got to know them from photographing their engagement photos and Amanda's sister's wedding (Maura + Kellen) also in Geneva, NY.

The wedding ceremony was at St Stephens Catholic Church in Geneva, which always lends itself to great photos. The reception was nearby at Ventosa Vineyards, with a lovely view of the vineyard itself, Seneca lake, and Geneva on the other side, only made more awesome when filled with great people.

I saw many, many familiar faces.. thank you again for referring me to your friends and family, I truly enjoy working with my clients and their friends. Weddings like this one are extra fun because the same people are coming together, in addition to working with a great band in Me and the Boyz again.. and I tell ya, Kellen's dad really lights up the dance floor ;)
