Engagement of Elise + Derek, 17 Oct 10

Thursday, October 21st, 2010
Elise and Derek are getting married next year in Webster, but are from Ohio, so they happened to be in town this weekend to do some wedding planning… and get some engagement portraits done in the fall. Wanting some fall colors, I took them to one of my favorite places, Mendon Ponds park. Just so happened we are right at peak color this week, and I was sure to incorporate it. They also brought their very cute and well trained Golden Retriever puppy Bentley. He makes an appearance this week too :)

Thanks for the opportunity to shoot, I enjoyed it and I’m pleased with the result.

A beautiful custom made ring (good job, Derek!)

I love the connection here

Mr Bentley

Derek proposed by tying the ring onto Bentley’s collar. Elise didn’t notice right away :)

Teri + Brad Wedding, 22 May 10

Wednesday, May 26th, 2010
I am happy to share the beautiful photos from Teri and Brad’s wedding. They had an intimate ceremony at the Lutheran Church of Our Savior in Chili, then we headed over to Teri’s grandfather’s senior living community for some photos (where I got some great group and individual shots), then finally stopping at the reception at the Wildwood Country Club in Rush. I love it when my clients give me lots of time for photos :)

The DJ at the reception was someone I worked with in the past– very professional and does excellent work as a DJ- Joe Quatela at Q Music Productions – and I had recommended him to Teri. It was a pleasure to work with him again (albeit briefly, since Teri and Brad chose my coverage times to end when the dancing started).

Sneak in a family portrait

One thing I always noticed with old family group photos (and yearbook/activity group photos) is that often in the small print sizes it’s hard to discern faces. So, I always shoot group shots two ways– wide to show the whole person, and close up, like below, to show everyone’s faces.

Onto the reception.. some details:

Everything had a purple theme.. many of the guests dressed in purple or purple/lavender accents (vests, ties, shoes etc)

First dance



This was funny. The man on the right had jokingly told Teri to “go away!”. This was her reaction :)

After dinner, the father-daughter dance

And the anniversary dance to round out the evening

Thanks for a fun time- all the guests were really friendly and I had an
easy time with everyone. May your marriage be blessed.
