Gigi + Bill’s Letchworth State Park Wedding, September 2014 | Rochester NY Wedding Photographer

October 2nd, 2014

Gigi + Bill are a fun, adventurous couple, with a nice sense of sentiment.. they chose to get married at the place of their first date and Bill’s proposal- just off Trail 19 in Letchworth State Park (a.k.a. “the grand canyon of the east”). Following their outdoor ceremony, we hiked to the hidden waterfall that Bill proposed to Gigi while kneeling in very cold month-of-March water, then headed over to the Allegiance Bed & Breakfast in Mount Morris.

Laura + Chris’s 1000 Islands Wedding, September 2014 | Destination Wedding Photographer

September 25th, 2014

Laura and Chris got married in the picturesque 1000 islands area of NY state, in the small town of Alexandria Bay, at the Bonnie Castle Resort. It was an honor to travel to this destination to document this sweet couple’s wedding day.

We started the day at the Captain Visger House bed and breakfast, where the ladies got ready, then Laura and Chris had their first look. We then headed by boat over to Heart Island to walk around the grounds of (and take photos at) Boldt Castle. We then headed back across the St Lawrence river to Bonnie Castle Resort, where we then had an outdoor ceremony with the river and Boldt castle in the background, followed by the reception inside.

Alex + Deb’s Outdoor Wedding, September 2014 | Rochester NY Wedding Photographer

September 18th, 2014

It’s always a special treat to shoot a wedding with all my friends and family present. I have known Alex and Deb for years as they are part of my church fellowship, and have seen them progress from dating to engaged to now married. And it is an honor to document their day. The ceremony was moving and emotional for everyone (myself included), followed by good food (catered from Moe’s) and a fun reception. It also happened to be but one of three days this whole summer above 90 degrees.. it was hot out!

One of the nice aspects of the wedding is where any guest could get up and give a few words of encouragement to the couple. Here’s their reaction to one person’s advice..
