Rachel + Adam’s Wedding, 30 Jun 12 | Esperanza Mansion Wedding Photography

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2012

I couldn’t wait for this wedding to come around- it has been 6 months since I shot a wedding as primary photographer and I was ready! Rachel and Adam were referred to me via a bridesmaid at Anna and Rob’s wedding (also at Norton Chapel)- Rachel’s sister- and as soon as we sat down we knew we were a good fit for each other. I got some great apple growing tips from Adam, so I made out pretty well in this deal ;)

Rachel and Adam got ready at Esperanza Mansion, where they had their first look (my first clients with one!). The ceremony at Norton Chapel in Keuka College was followed by a great party back at the Esperanza mansion let by DJ Joe Quatela.

I am also excited to include a couple of photos taken on film… see if you can spot them as you enjoy the photos.

According to Rachel’s sister and mom, this was very “Mad Men-ish”

K & B, 6 Aug 11 | Esperanza Mansion Wedding Photographer

Friday, August 19th, 2011

I had the privilege to 2nd shoot for Neil Cowley (makelovereal.net) at his wedding at Esperanza Mansion in Penn Yan this August. K and B are from nearby New York city but wanted a nice quiet destination wedding near their families. We started the day inside the Esperanza Mansion attic where the ladies were getting ready. Then, at St Michael’s Church in Penn Yan, the wedding ceremony followed where I got some awesome photos as 2nd shooter. We then headed back to the Esperanza Mansion and photographed their wedding reception.

I love shooting weddings at Esperanza Mansion. I grew an affinity for the place after shooting Julie and Spike’s wedding there last October. I look forward to shooting there again sometime soon. The facility is photogenic, the staff is super friendly and the food is great too :)

 

 

Behind the scenes- Neil hard at work..

 

 

The ladies started to come back from a nearby hairdresser who did a less-than-stellar job on one of the bridesmaid’s hair. They all had a good laugh about their reactions. The fact that they played off a potential disaster as comical shows the truly laid back character of these people- no one freaked out.

 

The bride’s hairdresser’s… The ladies thought it was funny how they reacted ;) The hairdresser kindly stayed around and redid her hair for her.

 

K relays a funny story

 

B checks his phone..

 

 

 

 

Probably one of my best father-giving-away-the-bride shots to date.

 

 

 

Receiving line

 

At my suggestion, we stopped at Keuka college and took some photos outside the chapel. It’s a good spot- I should know since I shot both Julie + Spike’s wedding and Anna + Rob’s wedding there two weeks apart last year!

 

 

We then headed up towards the lake with the Rolls Royce that Esperanza Mansion allows their wedding clients to take a ride in.

 

 

Finally, back to Esperanza for their wedding reception.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you Neil for the great opportunity to work together. Your clients were great to work with. If anyone at this wedding wants to see the full gallery, please contact Neil directly.

Julie + Spike Wedding, 23 Oct 10

Thursday, October 28th, 2010
After a great engagement shoot, I knew that shooting Julie and Spike’s wedding was going to be a lot of fun. Easy going, open to ideas, fun to hang around… I enjoyed myself at this wedding and made some great imagery for them. Coincidentally, this was also my 50th wedding. Couldn’t have asked for a nicer couple, day, or venue. Their ceremony was at Norton Chapel at Keuka College, with the reception hosted by the beautiful Esperanza Mansion in the scenic Finger lakes region overlooking Keuka Lake.

The ladies got ready at the mansion

Introducing..

Time for some group shots. But not before Spike has a phone conversation while we all patiently wait :)

DJ and MC service was by Showcase Sound, with the same DJ as Mark and Ashley‘s wedding

I heart grandmas with spunk

Conga lines are always fun :)

It is a tradition among Julie’s family for all of the women of the family to smoke cigars at weddings. So, we went out in the total darkness and light rain. While smoking is not cool, it certainly lends itself to some cool photos like these :)
