Cobbs Hill Engagement Session: Danielle and Ryan

Hooray for warm and sunny days! Danielle and Ryan's engagement session got rescheduled TWICE before we finally had the night we wanted. All that rain last month gave us a challenge - but we persevered!

They love a good sunset and being outdoors with their pups Lexi and Gage. Side note, as a puppy, Gage helped Ryan propose to Danielle - so naturally we included him in their engagement session.

It was a busy night at Cobbs Hill Reservoir, as it was one of the first 80 degree evenings of the year, but they didn't seem to mind.

They are a beautiful mix of sweet and silly together. They make each other laugh at the right moments and fit together perfectly. I can't wait to witness and capture their Statler City wedding in Buffalo in just a few months!

Until then, enjoy this little peek at their love.

Rebecca & Orion: Rochester NY Engagement Session

Orion and Rebecca moved here from Alabama together for school, they love being outside (even in the snow) and trying new cuisine together. I heard their Southern accent and just knew they'd be the sweetest couple. I wasn't wrong. They're meant to be husband and wife. 

Their engagement session brought us to downtown Rochester NY, first to The Old Toad. I have a fondness for that pub, as it's where my own first date with my husband was. Ah, memories. I digress... 

The way Rebecca's eyes sparkled when she smiled at Orion - so crazy beautiful. We also hit up Cobbs Hill Park for a little fun in the snow. Whether cozied up in a pub or dancing in the snow, they fit perfectly together.

See what I mean?

Tristin: Graffiti Senior Portraits, Pittsford Sutherland High School

Tristin is in her senior year at Pittsford Sutherland high school. She's also an artist, and has many interests ranging from the ukelele to fishing.

She wanted something unique and fun, so for her senior portrait session we went on an adventure! We found some amazing, somewhat hidden graffiti in Rochester, where she rocked every outfit she brought like a #girlboss.

We had so much fun, and I really believe that shows clearly in these images. Check them out and leave Tristin some love in the comments.

Have a great senior year girl!

Paul and Stephanie, featuring Row! Rochester NY Portrait Sessions

I'm not gonna lie, I was pretty excited to meet Row! Isn't she adorable? She's also soft and sweet. And of yeah, of course I wanted to see Paul and Steph again, too. :)

I've known Paul and Steph... hmm, maybe 8 years or so? We met at RIT where Steph now works as an advisor to photo students. (Small world, huh?) Paul is busy conquering the world of Mobile Apps creating with his many online education initiatives. Check out some of his work here:

We met up at one of their favorite places, Joe Bean Coffee Roasters, for a few photos before taking Row to the park for their holiday portraits. It was certainly an adventure, as Row wanted to say "hi" to every dog she saw, but it was a lot of fun and we laughed our way through it all.

I'm really excited about what we're putting together for their wall. A collage of 3 images on metal... it's going to look amazing!

Until next time,


Tony: Rush Henrietta Senior Portrait, Cobbs Hill Senior Pictures

Tony and Junior (his dachshund) were so easy going, it made for a easy breezy session at Cobbs Hill. No pun intended, although it was really windy up there! We had a great view of the city with the early fall colors. Tony rocked the formal look, and the casual outfit.

And bringing Junior along just made the session complete. There's never a bad time to include your four legged friend in your high school senior pictures. Especially when they give cute kisses like Junior did!

Enjoy the rest of your senior year Tony!

Maddy: Maplewood Rose Garden, Cobbs Hill Senior Session

Maddy - seriously with that smile? And those eyes? She's so perfectly adorable and sweet. She describes herself as "Funny, sarcastic, preppy, kind and bubbly." What a great description!

She's super involved too. She's a Varsity Volleyball Captain, Vice President of her Student Council, on the Student Senate, a Camp Counselor and a Youth Ambassador.

Maddy is also willing to go with the flow, which made photographing her senior portraits a breeze. When it started raining, she was willing to play in the rain under an umbrella.

We ended up with a great variety of images - everything from playing in the flowers to singing in the rain. We even got some athletic shots in her volleyball uniform.

Thanks Maddy for a great morning session! Go Brighton Volleyball! ~ Lori & Erin

Rich & Lisa: Village Gate, Cobbs Hill Engagement Session


They have known each other since high school, and have been together for 3 years. In all that time, Lisa and Rich continue to make each other laugh every day. Whether at each other, or their two adorable pups Maxim and Mia - who of course made a special appearance in these engagement photos! It just so happened that on the night of their session, it was a 90 degree day. But they were all troopers as we got started on Cobbs Hill. We continued on after that at Village Gate Square. Salena's Restaurant was the scene of their first date, so it was a lot of fun to stop in for a drink and a few great images there as well.

Despite the heat, it was a fun session! We can't wait to see what their May 2015 wedding brings. My initial guess...less heat, but still a lot of love to share. Can't wait! ~ Erin
