Sandi + Pete’s Wedding, 14 Jun 13 | Rochester NY Wedding Photographer

Saturday, June 22nd, 2013

After having a great time shooting their engagement session, how could I not look forward to documenting their wedding day? Added bonus: there were a ton of people there I already knew! I am always excited to see familiar faces at weddings, and grateful for the referrals my clients provide to their friends and family.

I knew this day was going to be a pleasure to shoot because Pete and Sandi are so friendly and accommodating. The entire event was held at the newly renovated Woodcliff Hotel and Spa. There were some really wonderful moments during the day that I present to you here.

Meryl competitively skis for Penfield High school at Bristol Mountain. We headed there late on a Wednesday afternoon to sneak in some portraits. Thank you Meryl for rocking the session, and thank you to Lisa for logistic and reflector-holding support!

Kristen + Jeff’s Wedding, 3 Dec 11 | Rochester NY Wedding Photographer

Sunday, December 11th, 2011

To say my last wedding for 2011 was interesting would be an understatement. Between quite possibly the least serious bridal party ever, a broken camera, loads of smiles and tears, and epic portraits this wedding put a great finishing touch on the year for me.

I shot Kristen and Jeff’s engagement photos earlier this year in Durand Eastman park and got to know their playful and romantic spirit with each other. This day I got to meet their friends and family who were simply a hoot. The photos will reflect this.

Thank you Kristen and Jeff for a great wedding, I know you and your families will treasure these photos for years to come- I had a terrible hard time picking them because there were so many good ones, so many great moments- tears and laughter.

Excited to be getting married!

These ladies just start laughing like this when seated together- I didn’t ask them to do anything.. makes my job easy :)

Onto the ceremony at St Louis Church, in Pittsford (where I shot my first wedding as main photographer). Kristen and her dad share a tender moment

Thumbs up from mom

Married!

Details of the day

We then headed over to the Lamberton Conservatory for portraits. With the weather being exceptionally warm for December we were able to do some outside too.

My favorite portrait of the day

The reception was at the Monroe Golf Club featuring christmas and winter themed decorations. It was shortly after arriving that one of my cameras simply broke and stopped working. However, since I have 3 camera bodies I was able to pick up and keep on shooting without missing anything. This is why it is important to hire a professional with backup equipment :)

Megan, the maid of honor, delivers the funny, embarrassing stores for her toast / speech ;)

As a surprise, Jeff’s parents had paid for Paper Moon Productions to do a same-day edit and present a video of the ceremony during the dinner. Coincidentally, the last time they had a same-day edit was when they shot Kat and Josh’s wedding last year.

Fun with moustaches

They had a dance competition which was quite funny

Then it was party time for the rest of the night!
