We are Lori and Erin, best friends. If you were to ask us “what’s the most important part of your lives?”  we would passionately tell you that it’s our relationships— with family, friends, and furry loved ones. It is the reason why we love taking photographs — because we are grateful to help you treasure the relationships in your life.

We love providing you with more than just what you look like. We incorporate your passions, personalities and especially your relationships in your images.

We love adventure. We'll stand on ledges or roll in the dirt to get the perfect shot. It's so much fun to try new things, especially in our photographs.

We're professional, but also creative dreamers - fun and easy going. Our favorite shoes are flip flops. We like to dance, badly, but always enthusiastically. 

We love traveling to new places and meeting new people. But we also love a glass of wine at home on the couch, or game night with friends.

We're grateful for our grandparents who spoiled us, parents who raised us, siblings who make us laugh, husbands who support us, and our children and fur babies, who inspire us. We are fortunate, and so thankful.

These people are all the reasons we are who we are, and why we do what we do.

We believe that it is our mission to help you treasure the relationships in your own lives.

We love capturing and revealing genuine connections while you remain present in the moment.

We just happen to use our education, experience and cameras to do that.

Erin Perrotta: Wedding Planner

My perfect day includes a good cup of coffee, a good book and being with my family. Preferably on the river in the 1000 Islands. If not there, anywhere that I can go barefoot and not get frostbite is perfect.

I love to travel, but I hate getting there. Winter and I don’t get along. When Spring arrives, softball is my sport of choice. I have a sweet tooth (I'm working on it), a Facebook addiction (I'm working on it), and a true love of adult coloring books. (They really are relaxing). Watching Parks and Recreation is my most recent binge watch on Netflix.

I grew up with a fun, boisterous family and I’m lucky to have most all of them - grandparents, parents, siblings, cousins and even second cousins relatively close by. Have you ever had your family of 50 come over for Thanksgiving dinner? I have, it’s an experience. Time spent with family or with friends is everything.

I have a husband who supports my "why", and a son who motivates me to fulfill it every day. Reading books at bedtime is my favorite time of the day with my son. It’s the only time he sits still long enough for me to hold him anymore.

I’m reminded daily, that all too soon these times will be but a memory. So I take the pictures of our moments. But I'll also soak up every snuggle, every laugh and every kiss, along the way, while I can.

Lori Coleman: Portrait Specialist

I love to travel. Some of my favorite adventures have taken place in New Zealand, Croatia & Ireland. I’m also on a quest to visit all of the states, 33 and counting…

I love to start my day with yoga. I love that its a workout that also clears my head and helps me focus.

My dogs are sweet, lovable, snuggly little mutts that I can’t imagine being without. Shoutout to Lollypop Farms, where we got them both!

I have 5 nephews and 4 nieces that are some of my favorite subjects.

RIT will always feel like home to me. I have such great memories of my time there, plus it’s where I met my husband. At an RIT hockey game is the only time my husband and I cheer for the same team.

I’m a huge Packers fan and have made the trip to Lambeau field (aka football mecca) to watch them lose to the Lions. I’m not allowed to go to live sporting events anymore. 

If it’s a nice day, I’m outdoors: shooting, hiking, biking, doesn’t matter. Being outdoors makes me happy. If it’s a crummy day, I’m probably curled up on the couch with my pups, a book and watching Hulu. Or practicing archery in the basement.


Giving Back

We are truly thankful for the lives we lead. To us, what we do goes so much further than just pushing a button on a camera. We're privileged to have careers that allow us to celebrate love and life on a daily basis. So we give back whenever we can.

We are proud members of the following organizations:


Both Erin and Lori are also past presidents of Greater Rochester Professional Photographers.
