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!
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.
Last October, Elise and Derek hired me to take their engagement photos. Naturally, they liked them so much they brought me on as their wedding photographer, and I am glad they did. It was great to meet their families and friends and have a beautiful, happy day together.
The ceremony was at the United Methodist Church of Webster, followed by a reception at the distinguished Penfield Country Club. I was followed all day by the 2-person video crew from Fruit Tree Studios (I recommend them BTW, they were nice to work with).
This was my second wedding this year with a large bridal party, and my 100% streak of un-air conditioned ceremonies this year has been maintained At least on this day the weather was comfortably in the 70′s so it wasn’t warm at all inside.
There are a lot of fun and sentimental photos in here, which I believe accurately reflects Elise + Derek’s personalities. Enjoy.
