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

Thursday, 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.

Barett + Brad’s Barn Wedding, August 2014 | Rochester NY Wedding Photographer

Thursday, September 11th, 2014

Barett & Brad had their ceremony and reception at the new-to-weddings, but historic Wedding Barn & Event Venue in Henrietta. The women first got ready at their family’s lakeside cottage in Lakeville, where I documented the action. These guys are clearly in love with one another, with very tender and loving vows. Brad even gave Barett a special gift during the reception by singing to her a song that has meaning for them both. Something they will treasure for a lifetime.

Lindsay + Keith’s Shadow Lake Wedding, August 2014 | Rochester NY Wedding Photographer

Thursday, September 11th, 2014

I knew right away that Lindsay and Keith were a great couple to work with.. not only is Lindsay a die-hard Bills fan like myself, but they both came via recommendation from Lindsay and Doug, a couple whose wedding I photographed several years ago.

Lindsay and Keith had a fun rehearsal at Shadow Lake followed by dinner at Artisan Works (a unique place to shoot weddings in Rochester), then the day of the main event we did an emotional first look at the Strathallan Hotel, followed by the wedding photos at High Falls and the ceremony and reception at Shadow Lake.

It was a pretty relaxed rehearsal dinner, with some delicious late afternoon light.
