Beth & Jerry Tie The Knot | Hermance Family Chapel, Wintergarden by Monroe’s Wedding, Rochester, New York Wedding Photography
“I love you for all that you are, all that you have been, and all you’re yet to be.” -Unknown
Beth and Jerry brought their closest friends and family together, to the beautiful Hermance Family Chapel at St. John Fisher Chapel, to witness them tie the knot. It just so happens that Jerry is the architect of this very chapel. It was beautiful to see these two start their marriage at a location that is so meaningful.
After the wedding, everyone gathered at The Wintergarden by Monroe’s for the reception. Beth completely fell in love with this space. She described it as a beautiful indoor venue that feels like you are outdoors with its large windows, greenery, and the glass ceiling. As time passes you are able to watch the night sky take over through the glass ceiling. This completely transforms the mood of the venue from bright and airy to dark and romantic. It is truly magical.
Throughout the night guests enjoyed dancing to the band The Swooners. Guests also got to indulge in some delicious cake that Beth so cleverly used to display table numbers. As the night came to a close, guests didn’t leave empty-handed.
Last fall when I had a session with Beth and Jerry they included their two lovely dogs. The love they have for their dogs was brought to their wedding when guests could take a few treats home for their own fur babies too.
I had such a fun time photographing this wedding. Beth and Jerry are a beautiful couple inside and out. I wish you both a lifetime of love and happiness.
Congratulations Beth & Jerry!

Rebecca and Marc were so giddy on their wedding. The giggles in between photos were priceless. Rebecca and Marc fell in love with their reception venue as soon as they laid eyes on it.

Alice & Will’s Vineyard Wedding || Fairport, NY Wedding
Making memories with you is my favorite thing to do.
When it came to wedding planning for Alice and Will it was all about telling their story and choosing the elements that felt right. In order to tell their story, they decided to start their day at Alice’s parents’ house. It was the place she grew up and a place that holds so many memories. Now, it also holds the memory of where Alice and Will had their first look.
The story continued as everyone gathered at the church where Alice’s parents are members. It was a beautiful ceremony that told the story of Alice and Will’s journey as a couple. Once the ceremony had finished the wedding guests headed to Casa Larga Vineyard for the reception. Casa Larga is a beautiful indoor/outdoor space that Alice and Will fell in love with when they went to visit. The space was picture perfect. I love a good vineyard wedding…love + wine = the perfect pairing. 😉
At the reception, the guests danced to live music by Silver Arrow Band while indulging their sweet tooth on some cake from Wegmans and an incredible ice cream bar by Chapels.
Alice and Will’s wedding conveyed their love story brilliantly. I’m so happy I was able to capture their enduring smiles from behind my lens.
Congratulations Alice and Will!

Rebecca and Chuck’s Wedding Day | Webster, New York Wedding
“True love stories never have endings.” –Richard Bach
Preparing for a wedding is a lot of work! Most couples are busy until the day of the wedding with last minute details. However, those little details tend to be my favorite part of wedding photography. I enjoy learning about my clients and seeing how the couple incorporates their story into their special day.
A couple weeks ago I got to reunite with Rebecca and Chuck. A little over a year ago I was lucky enough to photograph their engagement session with their two dogs. I loved getting their fur babies involved in their engagement photos. This time around I got to capture more of Rebecca and Chuck’s life story.
These two held their wedding at the beautiful Webster Golf Club. The wedding party was transported by school bus from venue to venue. It was a cute way to incorporate Rebecca’s true passion for teaching into their special day. I really love seeing the little details come together. One of the most memorable moments from this day was watching Rebecca’s bride tribe become overwhelmed with excitement when they saw her standing in her dress for the first time.
With the love and support that I witnessed from family and friends at Rebecca and Chuck’s wedding, I know their bond and love will only grow stronger and stronger.
Thank you for letting me capture these milestones for you, Rebecca and Chuck!

The day started out a little rainy but cleared up just in time for Russ and Allison’s Disney themed wedding at Ravenwood Golf Club.
Allison did an amazing job with the details. The guests seating chart to the roses in the glass (think Beauty and the Beast). No stone went unturned. From their cake to their socks, Disney was the way to go. Closer to the end of the night we went outside once the rain cleared, again. The guys changed into their Hawaiian shirts and the girls put their Mickey ears on. They were such a fun loving couple to work with!!
Congrats Allison and Russ!!

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.
