Alex + Deb’s Outdoor Wedding, September 2014 | Rochester NY Wedding Photographer

Thursday, September 18th, 2014

It’s always a special treat to shoot a wedding with all my friends and family present. I have known Alex and Deb for years as they are part of my church fellowship, and have seen them progress from dating to engaged to now married. And it is an honor to document their day. The ceremony was moving and emotional for everyone (myself included), followed by good food (catered from Moe’s) and a fun reception. It also happened to be but one of three days this whole summer above 90 degrees.. it was hot out!

One of the nice aspects of the wedding is where any guest could get up and give a few words of encouragement to the couple. Here’s their reaction to one person’s advice..

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.
