Julie + Spike Wedding, 23 Oct 10

Thursday, October 28th, 2010
After a great engagement shoot, I knew that shooting Julie and Spike’s wedding was going to be a lot of fun. Easy going, open to ideas, fun to hang around… I enjoyed myself at this wedding and made some great imagery for them. Coincidentally, this was also my 50th wedding. Couldn’t have asked for a nicer couple, day, or venue. Their ceremony was at Norton Chapel at Keuka College, with the reception hosted by the beautiful Esperanza Mansion in the scenic Finger lakes region overlooking Keuka Lake.

The ladies got ready at the mansion

Head over to the chapel to get married


Time for some group shots. But not before Spike has a phone conversation while we all patiently wait :)

DJ and MC service was by Showcase Sound, with the same DJ as Mark and Ashley‘s wedding

I heart grandmas with spunk

Conga lines are always fun :)

It is a tradition among Julie’s family for all of the women of the family to smoke cigars at weddings. So, we went out in the total darkness and light rain. While smoking is not cool, it certainly lends itself to some cool photos like these :)

Engagement of Elise + Derek, 17 Oct 10

Thursday, October 21st, 2010
Elise and Derek are getting married next year in Webster, but are from Ohio, so they happened to be in town this weekend to do some wedding planning… and get some engagement portraits done in the fall. Wanting some fall colors, I took them to one of my favorite places, Mendon Ponds park. Just so happened we are right at peak color this week, and I was sure to incorporate it. They also brought their very cute and well trained Golden Retriever puppy Bentley. He makes an appearance this week too :)

Thanks for the opportunity to shoot, I enjoyed it and I’m pleased with the result.

A beautiful custom made ring (good job, Derek!)

I love the connection here

Mr Bentley

Derek proposed by tying the ring onto Bentley’s collar. Elise didn’t notice right away :)

Allison + Joe Wedding, 10 Oct 10

Tuesday, October 19th, 2010
Back in 2002, Joe was a member of the NY Wing Drill Team (you can see Joe’s profile right at the top of this page) which I coached. We were National champions that year, thankyouverymuch, and apparently he was dating Allison then. Fast forward 8 years, and I get in contact with Joe through Facebook and lo and behold he and Allison are getting married! They chose 10/10/10 for their date and organized an intimate wedding ceremony at Allison’s workplace, followed by a reception at Bistro 135 in East Rochester. I’m honored to serve one of the drill team’s former cadets in this way.

Thanks and enjoy the photos

The cake smash was no surprise at all :)
