Julia and Rocco’s Engagement Session
This session has been long in the making. I had been in touch with Julia and Rocco for a while, going back and forth in correspondence, and I couldn’t wait to meet them in person for their engagement session!
Now that spring has finally blossomed, outdoor sessions are more beautiful than ever, and I’ve really been enjoying all of the natural beauty and fresh air. For this engagement session, we started at Genesee Valley Park. It was a perfect overcast evening. There’s a unique split tree there that’s so pretty to use as a backdrop, and it adds a fun detail to the photos. I want these images to be memories that couples cherish forever, and interesting locations always make them a little more distinct and memorable. Plus, they can go back there and reminisce over that time in their lives.
Julia and Rocco are such a warm, personable couple. I enjoyed chatting with them and getting to know them a little better (now I’m even more excited about their wedding next June—I feel so honored to be able to capture that for them!).
After the split tree photos, we went to a spot a little further into the park along the same path where the canal and the river meet. I personally love this location because it’s actually marked as Curtis Point after Julia’s grandfather! Nature didn’t disappoint, and we got some great photos there, too.
Finally, we went over to the University of Rochester to catch some trees in bloom. It also happens to be where they went to school, so it’s extra meaningful to them. It was so sweet watching them talk about old times together there.
These two are so fun and up for anything. I truly enjoyed meeting them, finally! I can’t wait to photograph their big day!
