Engagement of Kristen + Todd, 25 Jun 11 | Rochester NY Engagement Photography

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

I love a job where I get to meet great people at a great time in their lives. Kristen and Jeff are just my kind of people- easy going, relaxed, open for ideas, willing to improvise yet remain genuine. A great time was had by all at the beach, followed by the park and a quick shot of them cuddling on the couch at their apartment. The smiles and laughs you see here are truly Jeff and Kristen, not by anything I did. I just put them in front of the camera.

So playful.. I didn’t even tell them to do any of these things.

Clean up real nice too

They love exploring NY in their car

The ducks were lucky (hey, that rhymes!)

Snuggle on the couch for a movie

Can’t wait for your wedding in December!

Engagement of Chelsea + Todd, 19 Jun 11 | Rochester NY Wedding Photographer

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2011

Chelsea and Todd were guests at one of the weddings I shot last year, and when they initially met with me, Chelsea was using a picture that the client had posted on facebook as her profile pic– this was a good sign we were going to be a good match. I’m glad I have the chance to work with these cool kids because they were total goofballs and up for pretty much anything I suggested. Their wedding is bound to be a blast.

We rocked this session in the village of Fairport, getting some delicious ice cream, and playing a little real-life angry birds while watching the trains go by. BTW, who doesn’t like Angry Birds.. so addictive…

.. ok I’m back from playing to post the photos for you to enjoy

Add some ice cream and silliness ensues. I wonder what will happen with their wedding cake…..

Portraits for their desks :)

Warming up


Epic indeed

Thanks for a fun time guys. See you at your wedding in September!

Sara + Camden Wedding, 18 Jun 11 | Watkins Glen NY Wedding Photographer

Tuesday, June 21st, 2011

Sometimes last minute changes work out for the best. I can say confidently that this was the case for Sara and Camden. Originally planning to have their wedding in Florida next year, Cam found out his unit may be deployed to Iraq later this year. Their wedding here on Seneca Lake near Watkins Glen quickly materialized, and the idea of an intimate wedding became a reality on the schooner True Love.

Sara and Cam quickly found me and I am fortunate to have been available at the last minute. It was truly a pleasure to meet your families and I wish you both the best as you embark on your journey together as husband and wife. Oh, and the photos are awesome… check ‘em out.

The couple

The “look” shared between these brothers in arms ;)

Final preparation before boarding the boat

Sails up

The boat captain gave the helm to Cam, and he promptly played the part haha

Moments before the ceremony was set to begin, this is the “are you ready?” look

With this ring…

… I thee wed

The True Love schooner

Small weddings are awesome- 18 passengers total

Headed back to port with some delicious light

Thank you again for this wonderful opportunity, and thank you Cam and Sara for your ongoing sacrifice for freedom.
