A beautiful day to match a beautiful bride… A great group of friends and family, warm & welcoming. A lovely country club setting for the reception. A hopping dancefloor… all add up to a wonderful, unforgettable wedding! Congratulations to Jen & Jason, and a thank-you for making us a part of your special day.
The studio was abuzz last Tuesday, as we hosted Rochester Wedding magazine for a cover portrait shoot. The lovely ladies at RW.com brought their favorite dresses and tiaras from David’s Bridal, flower bouquets came from the incredible Lisa Meyer at Flower Power Decor, I brought in T-Love to work her magic on hair & make-up, and Heather, Kathryn, Kristen, and Holliann wanted to be brides for a day… The results speak for themselves: beautiful imagery all around.
As the snow continues to fly (I should know better than to think it’s almost over by now), I like to look back the the autumn and some wonderful engagement portraits that we shot in my favorite season. The leaves are blazing with color, the breeze has that wonderful smell to it, and the air is crisp.

As the snow flies, (and we catch up on our blogging!) we look back to the beautiful Western NY fall, and some of our autumn engagements. Congratulations again Renee and Randy!
I arrived at Tarrah’s house the morning of her wedding expecting to take beautiful photos of her and her ladies. What I didn’t expect was to hear her say, “We have a bit of a problem!” Oh oh…. Now, I’m quite used to (and take great pride in) being able to think on my feet to deal with unexpected obstacles, changing light conditions, etc., but hearing the word “problem” always gives me pause… “I sprained my ankle last night!” Ppppph! No worries, just lean on your trusty photographer, and we’ll take our time… We hobbled over to the Asa Ransom House for the pre-wedding formals, and she was thrilled. Between my shoulders, her wonderfully helpful ladies, and eventually, her new husband Benjamin, we had a wonderful, if a little slowly-paced wedding day…
…It began to rain just as we were leaving church… what to do? Straight to the reception to wait it out or go to the park where we wanted to shoot the party formals to see if it stops? Look to the trusty cell phone with internet access- I love my droid! Dial up the weatherchannel.com, look at the radar, looks like it’ll rain for about 2o min then stop for a bit, then some more rain… CHECK! We drove to the park, waited the storm out in our cars, then shot when it stopped. Perfect timing!
The reception was outdooors, under the tent at Glen Oak Country Club.
We got to know Pam & Jordan during their engagement portrait session at the Rochester Red Wings’ stadium. We scrambled all over the stadium, from the bleachers to the field, taking photos all the way… When their wedding date rolled around, we had their favorite print from the day matted into a signature matte for their guests to sign- a picture of them piggy-backing around the base path. The ceremony was in the beautiful Asbury First United Church on East Avenue, and before riding to the reception at Cobblestone Creek County Club, we quickly stopped outside our studio on Schoen Place for some formals. Flowers and centerpieces by my plaza mates, The Topiary.
