Another reason why I love what I do. How picturesque is this family? Every year we use a different location. This one is amazing! It doesn’t look like much at first glance. But it always has the best light!!
This was Dylan’s first outdoor photo shoot and he did great! Big brother was a huge helping getting some smiles too. I couldn’t have asked for a better night for photos.
From the moment I arrived at Maple Walnut Farm to the end, Jenelle and Brandon were all smiles. They choose the Geneseo area because they met at SUNY Geneseo as undergrads and it’s the place they fell in love with each other and the country-side.
It turned out to be the perfect day for running and jumping into the fields. At some point even dancing near the wildflowers.
Congratulations Jenelle and Brandon!!

Together is a wonderful place to be…
A couple weeks ago I headed to the Sonnenberg Gardens in Canandaigua to photograph Michelle and Conor’s wedding. Throughout the day I followed them around and captured their candid moments of love and admiration for each other. There was no need to direct these two to pose. They were smiling and giggling with one another so often that it almost felt too easy. From the loving whispers to the genuine smiles that crept across their faces when stealing glances at each other—all true emotions that resulted in beautiful photographs I hope they cherish forever.
The ceremony reflected Michelle and Conor’s warm personalities. Michelle had the Sonnenberg Gardens set up so the chairs were in a circle (versus an aisle). This created an intimate environment where Michelle and Conor married under the tallit of Michelle’s father. It was a beautiful way to remember him on their special day. Michelle and Conor’s nieces and nephews also tossed flower petals around the bride and groom throughout the ceremony. The entire wedding was beautiful from beginning to end.
These two were such a fun couple to photograph. Seeing how they interacted was a beautiful testament to the love they have for each other. I couldn’t help but feel their joy throughout the day and I want to wish this beautiful couple all the love and happiness in the world.

It rained the morning of Claire and Scott’s wedding. But by the time we left for the church, the weather cleared up. And it turned out to be a gorgeous day!
Sometimes the best light is overcast, and that’s what we got. The sun peaked through and made for some magical light at the end of the night. Their day went off without a hitch. After their ceremony at St. Agnes Church in Avon, we went over to their reception venue at the Jerris Wadsworth Barn. There are so many great details within the barn and property. It was hard to choose just a few!
Congratulations Claire and Scott!!

Alyson and Joseph’s Wedding | Webster, NY
Alyson and Joseph had the most perfect day for their May wedding. We started out at Ellison Park for photos. Where we eventually met up with their dogs (I always encourage people to bring their animals:) With their ceremony outside on the deck of the Abraham Lincoln Waterfront Lodge, everyone had a perfect view of the lake.
These two are so loving, fun and up for anything.
The chose their venue because of the beautiful views of the water. And at sunset, it did not disappoint. The light was absolutely gorgeous. Thank you, Alyson and Joseph, for allowing me to photograph your most perfect day.

We had just spoken through email. It was great finally to meet Jamie and Greg in person. It was a gorgeous morning to capture their engagement session among the Spring blooms (It’s finally Spring here in Rochester). They are such a fun and truly happy couple. I cannot wait to photograph their wedding next October at Belhurst Castle!
This family has been coming to me since their oldest daughter, was 4 months old! Jen is always up for anything and everything. With 3 littles under 6 years old, they were amazing! Their kids are just the cutest and well behaved:)

We had the perfect night for Alecia’s senior photos!
