Cameron’s Senior Portraits, 24 Sep 10 – Rochester NY Senior Photography

Saturday, September 25th, 2010
Cameron’s mom may have found me at the last minute before the deadline for yearbook submission at their school, but she (and Cameron) definitely got lucky. We did some offbeat photos and I’m pretty stoked about this session. Authentic and unique photos are what I deliver.

Been wantin to do this for a while. Couldn’t resist with the record shop right there.

Someone called him and they chatted for a minute (this is not posed)

Natalie 3 Month Baby Portrait Session, 17 Sep 10 – Rochester NY Child photography

Monday, September 20th, 2010
I’m always excited to work with past clients again, who is 3 months old. I photographed her parents’ wedding last year (one of my favorites), and was ecstatic to meet little miss Natalie. She was just adorable the whole session, playful, happy, comfortable. She even went to sleep easily, but only for a few precious minutes before a siren outside woke her up. Thank you again for the opportunity to do a photo session with her, it was great to meet her and see you guys again!

Pretty eyes

Cute dress

Sarah + Rich Wedding, 29 Aug 10

Saturday, September 4th, 2010
It is always a privilege to shoot the wedding of friends, and weddings where most of my friends are in attendance. It is always a great feeling to do this act of service for them. It’s also a treat when my wife and kids are in attendance.. they (in my eyes) are photo gold :)Rich and Sarah have a pretty long history with one another, having dated for a while, then taking a break for a while, then getting back together. When they announced their engagement, no less than 10 minutes later they asked me to photograph their wedding. I was honored to be considered so early in their planning process– thank you, Rich and Sarah for that.

Like the other two weddings among my church, most recently Matt and Heather, the wedding had some subtle differences to most weddings that I attend. The ceremony, held outdoors at Letchworth State Park, featured several friends and family singing worship songs acapella, along with wedding guests speaking words of encouragement and faith in front of the whole group to the couple, as a sign of the community’s support of their relationship. The DJ (who MC’ed the ceremony too) commented “I do a lot of weddings, but I’ve never seen a group of people so supportive of the couple”. The love is outwardly apparent even to acquaintances of the church.

My kids were very entertaining during the reception, but I’ll show most of those pictures in a post at another time. Enjoy these photos and thank you again Rich and Sarah for letting me be a part of your important day.

The best man, the officiant (and Rich’s closest friend) and Rich.

Words of encouragement being spoken to her from one of her close girlfriends.

High five for dad

Custom made Chuckie Taylors.. that’s more Sarah’s style.

Hammin’ it up.. cute :)

And my youngest twin sons, imitating their older brother doing “handstands” haha

Something borrowed from Heather and Matt’s wedding- the bridal bouquet game… where on one side all the women line up, and on the other, all the guys. The bride starts in the center, surrounded by two guys. She hands the bouquet to one of the guys, then dances to the end of the line with the one without the flowers. The guy who is left sits in the middle, and two ladies sit next to him. Kind of like musical chairs.. and whoever is left with the bouquet at the end of the song gets to keep it. This is a pretty neat idea, and married folk can participate. It was quite funny when brother-sister combos would appear in the chairs.

Rich wrote, sung, played guitar and recorded a song for Sarah.

These next two have 1000lbs of meaning for the people involved.

After the reception, we did some couples portraits
