Buffalo, NY Wedding Photograhy, Samuel's Grande Manor: Matt & Cassie What a sweet fall wedding at Samuel's Grande Manor!  Matt and Cassie are so in love and it showed in all their pictures!  These two are a perfect blend of sweetness, excitement, and easygoing.  The day was started with a "First Look", which we love so much!  We consider it a true honor to bear witness to couples as they see each other for those first moments on their special day.  Emotions are raw and uninhibited and it is very beautiful to see.  Cassie and Matt were no exception!  Their moment was sweet, touching, and full of love.  Boy, do we just have the best job or what!? :) We then had time to photograph their wedding party before the ceremony started.  The wedding was emotional and included a lovely sand ceremony that included Matt's son who was also part of the wedding party. We love to see ceremonies where the families are included and brought closer.  The celebration moved inside and the delicious dinner was served followed by the incredible Paula's Donuts for dessert.  Be sure to check out the awesome heart shaped donut wedding "cake".  That was a first for us and we loved it! After dinner everyone had a great time with dancing and some of the little ones really had some great dance moves!  Enjoy their day as you scroll through their images and be sure to leave them some love at the end in the comments.

Albany, NY Wedding Photography, 90 State Events: Stephen & Sarah What a great time we had traveling to our state's capitol to partake in Sarah and Stephen's special day! They say opposites attract... Jeff and I are perfect examples of that, but Sarah and Stephen are too.  He is shy and quiet, she is outgoing and not as quiet... a fact that was stated many times through out the day by friends and family :) They met each other while attending SUNY Geneseo and love blossomed as they gained their education. We started out at the lovely Renaissance Hotel photographing both sides of the wedding party.  The wedding was down the street at the most gorgeous Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception....such a beautiful church!  We then went to the Empire State Plaza and had some fun with a most wonderful wedding party, getting some great images incorporating some cool architecture and a fun "I Love NY" sign.  Such a great time, and all before we even started the reception!  90 State Events is a spectacular place for a reception!  The history of the building goes back to being a home for Martin Van Buren (once Governor of NYS) before it became the home to the National Savings bank for 125 years and then later converted to the awesome event space it is now. You can't beat the beauty of this historic space! The food was great, the party was fun, but most of all, you could tell that Sarah and Stephen were well loved and loved each other.  Some of their friends are from our local area as well as their florist (Simply Em Productions) who went to school with them and was happy to travel to Albany to not only deliver the stunning flower arrangements, but to of course, attend her friends wedding. We hope you enjoy scrolling through their most beautiful day.  We enjoyed our time with them very much!  Be sure to leave the couple some love in the comments below.

Perry, NY Wedding Photography, Normandie Orchards: Mason & Shayna Mason and Shayna were so excited about their day and the anticipation of their "First Look".  They adore each other and it showed!  When you look through their images you will see that look of devotion every time they were looking at each other.  Such a sweet pair!  Their first look was at the home of a friend and we did the wedding party pictures there as well.  We then moved on to Normandie Orchards for their beautiful ceremony and once there, Andie takes care of all the details and coordinating so the couple doesn't have to worry about a thing.  Service at this venue is exceptional!  Soon after the ceremony, a delicious dinner was served by Vasile's Catering and not long after that the party got to rolling with DJ Jickster.  We love working with Dave and he knows how to keep the party in high gear and the dance floor full.  Before we left we were able to scoot out and get some wonderful sunset images of these two love birds.  We cannot express how much we loved photographing these two.  We felt like we were amongst family as we had done wedding, family,and  senior pictures of many of their family and friends. This is one of the many blessings we get to experience after all our years of doing photography.... Being connected to so many :)  As you scroll through their pictures be sure to leave some love for these two in the comment section below.

Brockport NY Wedding Photography, Deerfield Country Club: Kevin and Casey Kevin and Casey's wedding was not your average wedding.  They have been together for 13 years, have two cute-as-can-be boys, and have built a beautiful life for themselves and their family. The wedding was about their family.  The boys had intricate parts in all facets of the day, and the rest of their family and friends (also considered their family) surrounded them to celebrate and rejoice.  The emotions of the boys were more than they could manage at times and spilled out unashamedly more than once as they watched their parents commit their love to one another.  It was truly the sweetest thing to see.  The day was a bit cold and dreary, but before it was over the sun broke through and brightened their ceremony.  Deerfield Country Club was an amazing venue providing great scenic backdrops for their "First Look" as well as their wedding ceremony, and their service was top notch.  Be sure to leave the couple some love when you have finished looking through their blog at the end in the comment section.

Beautiful Backyard Wedding, Wyoming NY: Jon and Heather The impending rain that threatened the day, could not deter Jon and Heather from the total excitement they felt about each other and their long awaited day. This wedding day was symbolic of a new beginning, of blended pasts, and of a bright future bound tightly with love and faith.  Family and friends gathered at this beautiful property (of a close friend) to celebrate the union of two lives, two families.  Their day started with a First Look.  We have said it many times and will continue to do so, but First Looks are such a sweet and intimate time for couples to start their excitement filled day together.  We then did the wedding party pictures followed by their sentimental ceremony.  They wrote their own vows and that always makes the ceremony extra personal and sweet.  The party that followed was filled with good food (by 3 Legged Pig), good drinks, good sweets (by The Cake Place) and good fun (with HDB Productions and their photobooth).  Music was provided by Rose with R and R DJ.  Enjoy the scroll through their day.  Be sure to check out the best cake topper ever! So unique and cute! Totally loved it!  And be sure to leave the couple some love at the end in the comments.

Livonia, NY Wedding Photography, Twin Silos: Missy and Adam Picture perfect day, seems the best way to describe Missy & Adams wedding at Twin Silos in Livonia, NY. The day started with Adam and his guys at their house and from there we traveled a short distance to meet Missy at Twin Silos as she was just finishing up her final preparations before meeting Adam for their "First Look". Missy was glowing with anticipation and the most genuine laughter and smiles while all her ladies helping in anyway they could. We had set up their "first look" the previous day at rehearsal and was able to take advantage of the beautiful weather and all the golden rod in full bloom (love this time of year). Following the first look and with all the wedding party photos complete the couple was ready to begin their ceremony attended by family and friends also enjoying the beauty of the day and glorious backdrop on Twin Silos. The details and preparation for Missy & Adams day was outstanding, the flower arrangements from Bush Hill Florist were outstanding, the food from Party Man Catering delicious, Dj Dan Fischer of Ultimate Entertainment keep the ceremony and celebration on track and rocking, the deserts from The Cake Place in Avon were delicious as always, and the Twin Silos staff was on hand to take care of all the Brides and Grooms needs.

We wish Missy & Adam the absolute best for their future together and if you would like you can love this awesome couple some love in the comments. Please check out our blog archives if you would like so see more of our work.

Keuka Lake Wedding Photography, Heron Hill Winery: Colby & Lindsay The day could not have unfolded any better for this sweet couple!  Colby and Lindsay came to us from New Jersey.  They both fell in love with the Finger Lakes and surrounding wineries (which is why we did their engagement session at a winery ;) ) and knew they needed to have their wedding there.  Heron Hill Winery has a fantastic view as well as offering fantastic service, and it made a most beautiful place for their first look, wedding ceremony, and reception. Friends a family traveled from all over the country to come celebrate with them and celebrate they did.  This group knew how to party and have fun! Following the most delicious meal provided by Nolan's it took a whole two seconds to fill the dance floor with everyone having an awesome time dancing to the phenomenal sound of the band Atlas! Enjoy scrolling through their photos and don't forget to leave the couple some love in the comments as well.

Buffalo, NY Wedding Photography, Templeton Landing: Paul and Ashley We had to travel through torrential rain on the morning of Paul and Ashley's wedding, but by the time we got to Embassy Suites in Buffalo, the rain had subsided, never to return that day.  It was a fun day that began with a First Look at Hotel Henry next to Buffalo State where these two first met at a rugby party.  Rugby is a big part of their lives and capturing an image of their wedding party in a huddle on the rugby field that conjoins Buffalo State and Hotel Henry was a priority.  We have added it to the images below so be sure to check it out.  From there we traveled to Templeton Landing where they had a lovely and sunny rooftop wedding and a fun reception with details of comics and candy (His childhood love of comics has spilled into their love of comic book movies and she loves candy).  One thing that was uniquely different about this reception and touched me deeply was the father and daughter dance.  Her song of choice was "To Sir with Love".  I cried to this song in the movie of long ago, and cried to it as she and her father danced to it.  I have never before heard of it being used for this purpose (and neither had the DJ), but it fit perfectly.  Enjoy the images below and be sure to leave the couple some love in the comment section that follows. 

A big shout out to the Ashley and Paul team of vendors that helped to make their day beautiful:

DJ - Her brother, A'don Allen DJ Services

Flowers - She made her own beautiful flowers

Bride's dress - New York Bride of Syracuse

Bridesmaid's dresses - David Bridal

Tuxes - Men's Warehouse

Cake - Cake Crazy

Groom's ring - Valhalla Wood Forge - (if you're looking for a unique wedding ring check them out!)

Rings - Jared's

Between these two sets of parents there is 82 years of marriage experience! Paul and Ashley, we thank you so much for having us be part of your beautiful day!  We wish for you a life filled with lots of love and laughter, which, knowing you two, won't be hard :)

Seneca Lake Wedding Photography, Belhurst Castle: Grayson and Bernadette What an amazing day!  We are so happy we were able to be part of Bernadette and Grayson's day at the lovely Belhurst Castle! The weather was just perfect, the setting was grand and this couple has such a deep love and respect for each other that capturing their adoration for each other was easy.  Even though their day held a curve ball or two, they kept their focus on what was important and never allowed there to be anything but happiness and love to enter their day. Their first look had a last minute location change but it was truly a beautiful moment just the same. The wedding party was awesome to work with and you could tell that they, too, had an incredible love and respect for these two.  Family came in from all over the world to celebrate with them and the ceremony included the Filipino traditions of the cord and veil and the ceremonial coins known as Arras.  These coins are traditionally given by the groom to the bride to symbolize his commitment to providing for the family, but in this ceremony Bernadette passed the coins back to Grayson representing their promise to build their future together.  Be sure to check out who delivered the coins to them when you scroll through the images.  The reception held many sentimental moments, especially with Bernadette's father's speech and during their dance.  He commented it was his contacts that were causing his eyes to tear up, but we're pretty sure it was something else ;)  Before we left, we were able to get down to the docks and get some really great moments at sunset.  Be sure to scroll to the end to check a few of them out and while you're there be sure to leave this lovely couple some love in the comments below.  We'd like to give a shout out to the other vendors that helped to make their day wonderful. 

The beautiful cake was by Simply Sweets

The lovely flowers were assembled by friends and family

DJ - Whirlin' Disc

Caledonia, NY Wedding Photography at Jerris Wadsworth Wedding Barn: Karter & Taylor Cannot begin to put into words what this day was like.  Karter was our first senior photo session many moons ago!  It was really him asking us to do prom pictures in the park that led to our yearly LCS prom event.  When Coach Mac led his LCS football team to the state championship and won, we were there! We photographed his mother's wedding and his baby brother when he was born.  For those of you who know Karter, you know what an awesome person he is.  To know he found his beautiful match in Taylor makes our hearts sing.  Such a sweet couple who's love for one another is very evident.  So much joy and love surrounded this day!  Coach Mac performed the ceremony and many of the "LCS champions" were in attendance (yes, we got that picture :) )  The day went just as it should have.  Beautiful weather, lots of love, lots of friends and family all at the most glorious Jerris Wadsworth Wedding Barn.  Totally great venue with wonderful service and lots of photo opportunities! We were totally honored to partake in their day.  Enjoy scrolling through the images and be sure to leave them some love in the comments below.  A big shout out to the awesome band of vendors that helped make their day awesome: Great food (incredible apple cornbread) and cake by Colby's, beautiful flowers were done by Erie Way Florist, DJ Tommy B kept the tunes flowing, Taylor's gorgeous dress from Silk Bridal, Hair by Leah Hagstrom, and Makeup by Nikki Rogers (The ladies looked great!)

Buffalo, NY Wedding Photography at Samuel's Grande Manor: David and Keshia David and Keshia's day was one that was filled with lots of emotion!  Friends and family circled close to celebrate the love and life these two share. Two of the cutest, most well behaved little ones kept everyone smiling.  The beautiful Samuel's Grande Manor was all decked out with everything purple, teal, gold and peacock!  It was truly stunning!  Wisteria draped down the arches that covered the isle and made for a most magnificent setting for the two to say their vows.  After the ceremony we were able to squeeze in a few family and wedding party pictures and then off to dinner and the party! We would love to give a shout out to the vendors that helped make the day come together:  Samuel's Grande Manor had fantastic food as well as service; Maureen's did an spectacular job with the flowers; the cake was done by Muscoreils and DJ Spin provided the music to keep the party moving.  We hope you enjoy the images as you scroll through their day and be sure to leave them some love in the comments below.

Cody & Muriel's Bristol Harbour Wedding What a great day! Filled with fun, family & friends. The day started with us getting photos of Cody and the guys as they were getting ready at the Mountainside Lodge, a beautiful three story overlooking Canandiagua Lake. We had to rush to get to the door as a thunderstorm decided to let loose just as we arrived. It turns out this would be the worst of the rain and the rest of the days weather would cooperate nicely. It was just a short distance from the lodge to the Bristol Harbour Lodge & Golf Club where we would meet Muriel and her ladies for some getting ready photos and to set up the couples for their first look prior to their ceremony. We can't say enough about the staff at Bristol Harbour, they went above and beyond to see to it Cody & Muriel and all the guest were well taken care of and nothing was left to chance. They also worked with us to see that we were taken care of and we truly appreciate that, this venue is absolutely beautiful and so are the people that work there. Cody & Muriel's ceremony was heartfelt and beautiful, full of laughter and tears of joy. The celebration that followed was held in the ballroom at Bristol and was complete with great food, music and lots of dancing! As a final image we were able to get a sunset shot on the golf course which was the perfect way to complete a perfect day. We want to thank Cody & Muriel for choosing us to be part of their day and we wish them the very best for their future together! Please don't hesitate to leave some words of love and well wishes in the comments.

We also have to acknowledge the vendors that contributed to making this day extra special:

Bristol Harbour Lodge & Golf Club

DJ- H&H Entertainment

Cake & Deserts- Shauna Anderson at The Village Tavern

Flowers- Bradley James Design

Dress- Stella's Bridal

Tuxedos- Mens Warehouse

Michael & Gabrielle, Avanti Mansion Wedding Michael & Gabrielle's day was absolutely beautiful! Surrounded by family and friends and hosted by the Avanti Mansion with their staff of professionals, what more could anyone ask for! The day started with the ladies getting makeup done in the bridal suit by the talented Kaylen Adams of Boutique Lab, all the ladies were having a great time and there was much anticipation & joy in the air. Michael and his guys arrived shortly after and they joked and had fun as they put on the finishing touches on the back patio, it was very apparent that all the wedding party was very close and emotions running high. Michael & Gabrielle's ceremony was held on the back terrace and was magnificent in every way, the bridal party and guests could not help but get caught up in the emotion that filled the air. With ceremony complete, the guests moved to the ball room for cocktails followed by a delicious meal prepared by the Avanti kitchen and served by their awesome staff. We have to also make a note of the beautiful centerpiece arrangements (and all the flowers) by Blossoms & Treasures, absolutely stunning! Gabrielle made her very own cake and it was also stunning! she is a professional baker and owner of Gabbie's Goodies, how cool is it that the bride makes her own cake! Michael & Gabrielle's celebration was jamming thanks to the talented "master of mix" DJ Wire, having no problem keeping people on the dance floor, partying in celebration of Michael & Gabrielle's glorious day.

Have to give a shout out to the Bridal Chateau for Gabrielle's stunning dress, hair by Sheltrice Rhodes, and rings from Vales Jewelers. Please feel free to leave Michael & Gabrielle some love in the comments and if you would like to see more of our work please check out our Archives here.

Colt & Cheryl-Normandie Orchards Barn Wedding Colt & Cheryl, married on the 15th of June 2019, had a picture perfect day! We started the day with Colt and his guys getting ready at his parents beautiful home. This group was a riot to work with! They all were having fun and cracking jokes while still making sure Colt had all he needed and that details were taken care of. Although they razed each other, we could clearly see they were a tight bunch that look out for each other as well. From there, we traveled a short distance to Cheryl and her ladies. Laughter, tears and hugs filled the bridal suite at Normandie Orchards as they were putting on the finishing touches. Andie, (one of the owners and coordinator) was looking after details and seeing to it that the wedding party was well taken care of as she always does. Cheryl got to spend a special moment with her father and their very own "first look" prior to heading off to her intimate first look with Colt at Arnold and Sharon Dueppengiessers beautiful property. Their first moments together were filled with so much love and genuine affection!  Once they had their time together, we brought in the wedding party for some fun group images.  What a fun group! Back at Normandie Orchards, Colt & Cheryl's ceremony was absolutely stunning with a full house of family and friends and officiated by local celeb, Eric Kelly. Following the ceremony guests enjoyed some lawn games while socializing with a drink or two and at the end of the cocktail time, the rain decided to make an appearance and settle in for the rest of the evening. If it had the rain, the timing could not be more perfect as the couple was ready to be announced and the guests had found their way to their seats. Kramell's Catering served the most delicious country style BBQ! We have to say their BBQ is one of the best in the area and their service is top notch!  DJ Macy Paridise got the party rockin' and a large group of fun loving guests celebrated the night away with Colt & Cheryl always in the midst.

We have to give a shout out to some very awesome vendors: Special Occasion Hair Design of Rochester, Ashlins in Warsaw for the beautiful bridal party bouquets, guys suits from Macy's, dresses from Davids Bridal, and ice cream from Yummies in Warsaw, served up by Kramells Catering for the sundae bar..... Yum!!

Please send this most awesome couple your love and well wishes in the comments below and if you would like to see more of our recent images then check out our Blog Archives here.

Grayson & Bernadetten, Greenlakes State Park, Couples Session Had a great time with Bernadette & Grayson at Green Lakes State Park, they were able to bring along their furbaby Leila to get in on some of the photo action. Green Lakes is a beautiful location! We had never visited it before but had seen photos so when Bernadette suggested it for their session we jumped at the chance. If you have never been, then we highly recommend a visit. We are looking forward to Bernadette and Grayson's August wedding at Belhurst Castle in Geneva NY so stay tuned for those images with this amazing couple!

Robert & Selena, Conesus Lake Wedding, Livonia NY Robert & Selena's wedding day was very intimate and heartfelt with a small group of close family and friends. The day started at Roberts grandparents lake house on the beautiful Conesus Lake in Livonia. We received a warm welcome from family as we photographed Robert in his final preparations, and of course we got photos of all the family as well. From there we traveled a short distance to the Rodeway Inn to photograph Selena as she prepared for the ceremony along with her mother, father and sister, this was a quiet and very beautiful moment. Robert & Selena's ceremony was at the gorgeous St Matthews Catholic Church in Livonia and was perfect in every way. Following the ceremony we grabbed some quick images at the St Matthew courtyard and then off to Vitale Park in Lakeville for some time with the bride and groom before heading to Beachcombers in Conesus for the celebration! We have to add that it is very apparent in the images how much love they share and we thank Robert and Selena for allowing us to be part of such a grand day!

Have to give a big shout out to all the staff at Beachcombers! you guys did and awesome job and the food was delicious and service top notch! and The Cake Place in Avon made another delicious cake! Please feel free to send some love to Robert and Selena and wish them the very best for you their future. If you would like to see more of our recent work check out our blog archives

Ben & Erica, Wadsworth Homestead Wedding, Geneseo NY, Beautiful spring day, historic mansion, wonderful couple with family and friends, what more could you ask for on a wedding day! Ben & Erica's day began with preparations in the beautiful Wadsworth Homestead in Geneseo, NY. What a gorgeous backdrop, it seemed to fit so perfectly for them, they are a quiet couple but with a great sense of style, it was as if they were truly meant for this moment in this location. The spacious upstairs accommodations made it possible for both bride and groom to get ready without the fear of seeing each other before their "first look" prior to the ceremony. We set Ben & Erica's first look up on the north side porch area where they could have a private time and see how glorious each other looked. Following the first look, we move around the grounds for some couple's images and then brought in the wedding party for some photos, we were even able to get some family photos prior to the ceremony which enabled the couple to attend their cocktail time with guest. The ceremony was brief but magnificent in every way, and took place on the west lawn with approximately 90 friends and family in attendance. For the cocktail hour, guest were able to mingle in the spacious downstairs of the mansion and were served drinks and appetizers by the awesome staff of the Caledonia Village Inn. Following cocktails guest settled into the party tent as Ben & Erica were announced and had their first dance as husband and wife. A delicious meal was prepared and served by the staff at the Caledonia Village Inn catering. The desert table was nothing short of spectacular with so many delicious offering prepared by The Cake Place in Avon NY. The party was rocking thanks to Encore Events featuring DJ Ray Tiano "Commissioner of Remixology", also have to send a big shout out to Envy Salon in Geneseo for the Hair & Makeup, flowers by Jody Rowcliff, rings from Heritage Jewelers, Brides dress from Heart to Heart Bridal in Webster NY, Bridesmaid dresses from Davids Bridal.

We were so fortunate to be the chosen photographers for Ben & Erica's wedding day (and engagement), we thank them and wish then the very best as they journey life together. Please check out their images and send the couple some love in the comments. If you would like to see more of our photography, please check our our blog archives here.

We had a beautiful fall day at Letchworth and with that as a backdrop all it took was for Karter & Taylor to just be their playful loving selves and our cameras captured the moments. Also they brought along their pups to get in on the action and was clear the they were a very big part of the family. The wedding is coming up quickly and we are so looking forward to the day for many reasons, one of which is the fact that Karter was the very first senior we photographed and another is that we were the chosen photographers for his mothers wedding! We are so fortunate to know this wonderful family and there is no doubt that Karter & Taylors wedding day is going so special in many ways.

Be sure to leave some love for the couple in the comments and if you would like to see more of our images check our our blog archive here.

Rochester Riverwalk Engagement-Colt & Cheryl With Colt & Cheryl's wedding rapidly approaching we just have to share their engagement photos from last summer! These two are absolutely amazing in front of the camera (and off camera)! They are so very charismatic with each other and the romance they share just explodes with every image. This is by no means an act but is, without doubt, Colt & Cheryl's true nature, the body language says it all. As you scroll thru the images it will become very apparent.

We started the session at the Rochester Genesee riverwalk at the Cornhill Landing with a champagne toast just playing around with some candids and of course grabbing camera aware portraits occasionally. From there we headed over to Hedonist Ice Cream for some more fun and delicious artisan ice cream. Absolutely cannot wait for Colt & Cheryl's wedding coming up in June at Normandy Orchards here in Perry, it is going to be a glorious day indeed! 

Please feel free to checkout all the images (and slideshow) and don't forget get to leave the couple some love and well wishes! If you would like to see more of our work please check out our Blog Archives....Enjoy!

Buffalo Wedding Photography Winter Wonderland: Cullen & Jamela Every now and then we get the privilege to photograph multiple weddings within the same family.  This would be the case with Jamela and Cullen.  Years ago we were honored to photograph Cullen's sister's wedding and have remained in touch with Karissa and Brandon ever since.  We loved how beautifully decorated the wedding and reception were, fulfilling Cullen and Jamela's dream of a winter wonderland wedding.  It was truly beautiful.  But beyond the beauty of the decorations was the beauty of family, faith, and friends that permeated every part of their wonderful day. We see much through the lens, and what we saw this day was two grounded, fun loving, deeply giving families come together to support the beginning of a new family.  Many moments through the day were marked with emotion including when Cullen gave his new daughter the keys to his heart during the ceremony.... such a tender moment!  

Cullen and Jamela's day felt very much like a fairy tale wedding.  One where the princess finds her prince charming.  They chose to start their magical day with a magical "First Look" where they had an intimate, personal, moment together before they began their day of ceremony and fun.  They did this at the Ellicott Square Building in downtown Buffalo.  What a beautiful piece of architecture and what a sweet time for these two and it really had the essence of a grand castle which was befitting the royal couple.  They then moved on to the Pentecostal Temple for the ceremony and then to the wonderfully decorated Main & Transit Firehall.  The yummy food was catered by Nadine Brown, DJ Hassan kept the party rolling, and the whole thing was coordinated by Angela Mosley who did a most wonderful job keeping everything moving smoothly. 

Please scroll through the images of their day and enjoy every moment as we did capturing it!  When you get to the end be sure to leave some love for the couple in the comments.  Cullen and Jamela, we are so happy for both of you!  You have so much love and fun ahead of you.  We wish you all the blessings your life can handle and we thank you for allowing us to capture your day.

Rochester Wedding Photography: Dave & Darla's Snowstorm Wedding at St Joseph's Park Snowstorm, below freezing temperatures, and an outdoor wedding... three things we would never have wanted to mix.  That was until we had the privilege of bearing witness to, and capturing the sweetest wedding ceremony ever with the sweetest of couples!  Dave and Darla had put much thought into their winter wonderland wedding.  Their ceremony took place in downtown Rochester at St Joseph's, the city's oldest Catholic church. The only catch is that this church had been destroyed by fire in 1975 and all that is left are the beautiful stone walls, arches and high bell tower.  No walls, but lots of love from about 100 guests and a wonderfully large and fun wedding party, would keep them warm.  Lots of little surprises through out the day, including Darla showing up to her first look with Dave with no warm winter robe on, just her beautiful, trumpet style dress... BRRRRR.... and then walking down the isle to Crazy Train by Ozzy Osbourne while friends and family clapped in rhythm!  Hundreds of friends and family showed up at the Italian American Community Center to help them celebrate.  Beautiful setting, wonderful food, a great 80's band called Hall Pass and lots and lots of love made for a most perfect reception! Be sure to scroll through all the images to see all the different things they had for their day and then be sure to leave them a note of love in the comments.  "Many" years ago Jeff and I were married on the same date and we loved the idea of celebrating our anniversary with helping these two start their journey to their very own "many years" of love.  Thank you Dave and Darla for allowing us to share in your most amazing day!  We could not have found a better way to celebrate our own anniversary!

Village Gate, Rochester NY, Engagement. Ben & Erica Due to a cold and rainy day Ben & Erica chose to have their engagement session at the Village Gate on North Goodman in Rochester. We are so glad they did! Village Gate is a old factory complex that was converted to house a variety of independent stores, restaurants, salons, & offices. It is located within the Neighborhood of the Arts and is a wonderful place to get those downtown feel images. Ben & Erica are self proclaimed quiet homebody types but when they got in front of our cameras their chemistry as a couple really shined and we had a blast.

Keuka Lake Wedding Photography: Kristine and Brian Spending a few hours at Keuka Lake and Heron Hill is always a nice way to spend a Saturday.  Getting to witness two people joining their lives makes it a great day!  Kristine and Brian chose to do a private "First Look" prior to saying their vows in front of family and friends.  The day was cold, so the time outside was a bit short, but they had a beautiful place to get ready at the Manor House Estate.  The food (by Nolan's) was super yummy and the service provided by Heron Hill was, as always, simply wonderful.  Please enjoy looking through their images and be sure to leave them some love at the end in the comments.

Letchworth State Park Rainy First Look: Luis and Julia The plans were in place for a beautiful, intimate, Fall, first look for Julia and Luis.  As the day approached the forecast looked like there would be nothing but cold and rain that day.  In order to create a first look outside of the small church where the ceremony was being held and where the wedding party was going to get ready, we found a pavilion at Letchworth State Park that they were able to rent in order to have a "somewhat" outdoor first look.  Though a bit tense about the changes of her day, Julia made a most beautiful bride and had a wonderful day filled with lots of laughter and love!  Luis's quiet nature is a wonderful compliment to Julia's more outgoing and take charge personality and you could see through out the day how much their new family loves and supports each other.  Be sure to leave the couple some love in the comments when you get to the end.

Maple Walnut Farms Wedding Photography: Jared and Rachel Every now and then you get a couple that is just plain fun!  They have fun with each other, fun with others, and fun in front of the camera.  Jared and Rachel had a day that, obviously, was filled with fun.  But go beyond the fun and what we saw was a deep admiration and love for one another as well as strong family ties.  They started their day with an intimate first look ceremony.  Their wedding ceremony was moved from the beautiful grounds of Maple Walnut Farms into their beautiful barn due to the cold temperatures.  Rachel was a real trooper though because despite the cold temperatures she persisted in pictures with no warm wrap around her.  But, then again, she did have some strong, warm arms wrapping around her most of the day ;)  Friends and family quickly helped the venue convert the barn from ceremony to reception and the rest of the day was filled with food, dancing, laughter, and ... you guessed it... fun!!  Be sure to scroll down to the end where you can leave them some love in the comments!

Seneca Lake Wedding Photography at Ventosa Vineyards: Matt and Sabrina At 6' 7" Matt certainly stands out in a crowd.  But it doesn't take long with him to know that he is most definitely a gentle, loving, giant, teddy bear.  This man has a heart large enough to match his physical stature, and you can see within moments of seeing Sabrina and him together the enormity of the love he has for his bride.  And while she may be small in comparison, her love for him is not.  Their day started out as hot and steamy and the skies threatened rain.  But by afternoon, when they had their first look out in the vineyard of Ventosa Vineyards, the breeze blew the heat away and we were just left with the soft winds of warm Autumn day.  They had loving friends and family to celebrate with, a most beautiful setting, and venue that excelled at taking care of their guests.  We escaped for a bit after the ceremony to go capture some beautiful sunset images.  We hope you will enjoy scrolling through them and when you get to the end, be sure to leave some love for this most awesome couple.

Seneca Lake Wedding Photography: Jeff and Ashley What a beautiful, scenic day!  Ashley and Jeff are a relaxed, fun couple that had just that sort of wedding day.  Friends and family to support and surround them, and many laughs with a fun loving wedding party.  They started with a beautiful, intimate (somewhat.... there is an image you will see showing there were spectators :) ) "First Look".  Their ceremony was beautiful and officiated by Jeff's dad.  They had a twist on the sand ceremony... instead of sand they used glass crystals that once fired will create a piece of glass artwork for their home.  And then there was the most AMAZING sunset ever!  We had been waiting and watching and were worried that as the sun set we may lose the sky as it was just filling in with gray undefined clouds.  Then the horizon just rolled out the most dramatic sky!  The whole reception came out to the terrace to watch!  Be sure once you get to the end of the photos that you leave the couple with some words of love...
