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.

Along with some sweet Foosball action, there’s some of Keith’s brewery’s sweet action beer available.

Maura + Kellen’s Belhurst Wedding, July 2014 | Geneva NY Wedding Photographer

Friday, August 1st, 2014

Maura and Kellen had a beautiful ceremony at St Stephen Church in Geneva, followed by a raucous party at Belhurst led by Me and The Boyz. It was wonderful to see how loving their families are and how they supported Maura and Kellen over the years, and will continue to do so going forward. It was also cool to see some familiar faces from Jessica and John and Molly and Bo and Laura and Justin’s Geneva NY weddings.
