Engagement of Allee + Ryan, 21 Oct 09

Thursday, October 22nd, 2009
So we wondered, when the weather forecast says “40% chance of rain” does that mean there’s a 100% chance of rain in the area, but only a 40% chance that it will rain on where you are? Or does it mean a 40% chance in the whole area? Well, we had time to ponder this as it rained for about 15 minutes. But despite mother nature’s best efforts to mess with my mojo, Allee, Ryan and I teamed up to overcome it and get great photos at Mendon Ponds park. And in keeping with my 2010 “year of the teacher” theme, Allee is a certified teacher currently in grad school getting her masters :)

They requested the park to incorporate the fall colors– the park cooperated and so did Allee and Ryan. They were champs and did everything I requested of them, including walking out over a fallen tree suspended 8 feet above a 45 degree slope with about a 40 foot drop :) I can tell these two will get along really well for many years to come, they were very comfortable with one another, and clearly happy and in love.

This looked like I plopped them right in front of a painting:

Another great backdrop

Their balancing act

It wasn’t hard at all for Allee to ‘swoon’ over Ryan :)

And for some colors:

Whenever I asked them to do a ‘cool’ pose or ‘facebook’ Allee kept doing this.. no one knew why but it was funny either way :)

The light fog helped make this seem more etheral

And check out the bling! Nice choice!

Engagement of Jenn + Paul, 18 Oct 09

Monday, October 19th, 2009
First off, us math majors must reprezent… Jenn is a math teacher, continuing in my 2010 “year of the teacher” trend amongst the majority of my clients, and it’s rare for me to run into a fellow math major (yes, this photographer actually has a degree in mathematics). Anyway, these guys are super fun to hang around, and we had a good time taking photos at Paul’s parents house in Scottsville, followed by the site of their first date, Sinbad’s on Park Ave. It was a super nice fall day.. couldn’t have asked for better weather.

Let the awesomeness that are the photos begin…

Love fall for its colors

Jenn and paul are sittin in a tree, K-I-… you know the rest ;) (thought of this on the drive to the shoot)

Over to the very same table they sat at on their first date

Some nice standard portraits


Now being on Park Ave, I could not resist taking these guys into the laundromat.. they were good sports with all the people doing their laundry watching the spectacle :) But since they’re super cool they entertained my ideas and I think they came out pretty well.

Last one

Gabrielle + Blair Wedding, 11 Oct 09

Thursday, October 15th, 2009
Well we couldn’t have asked for much more.. the weather was dialed in perfectly for October (except a little breezy which made it feel cool). The ceremony was outside at the Bristol Harbour, an awesome venue with a grand vista view of Canandaigua Lake. Gabrielle and Blair met while working on a cruise ship as performers– which led me to anticipate an interesting reception– and they did not fail to deliver. The whole family seems to be dancers, and I never saw more moves at a wedding than this one!

I am excited to present these photos for your viewing pleasure. Be sure to leave some love in the comments :)

Lovely bride and lovely scenery = lovely photo

Blair and his groomsmen walk down to the altar for the ceremony

Gabrielle, her dad and sister prepare

Just glowing :) What a smile!



A cheeky photo ;)

Oh and a nice standard portrait too :)

Gorgeous sunset.. favorite photo from the day.. love how the cloud lines right up

Some details

Not your average cake– it was ice cream cake– gingerbread flavored ice cream.. yummy!

Of course with ice cream cake fresh out of the freezer it was rock hard and difficult to cut LOL

He had some serious moves

Aunt is getting it on!

Impromptu conga line!

And of course when “New York New York” by Sinatra plays, the kick line forms

Doing their best dirty dancing lift

And of course, with the clear weather I couldn’t resist to sneak in another aspect of my favorite photography hobby, astrophotography. (BTW The bright ‘star’ just left/below center is Jupiter)
