Finger Lakes Wedding Photography, Ventosa Vineyards: Christine and John

There are very few things we cannot control on a wedding day. The weather is top on that list. And while it wasn’t a heatwave, or raining - it was incredibly windy on Christine and John’s wedding day. But as all weddings do, the show must go on and so it did.

From the first look to the last dance, John and Christine were all about sharing their love - both for each other, and for everyone that came to celebrate the day with them. Their bridal party was super fun, and their families were the absolute sweetest, handling the windy atmosphere with laughter and grace. It was a beautiful day for the sweetest couple.

Congratulations Christine and John!


Ventosa Vineyards Wedding: Jesse and Kristen

From the start, working with Jesse and Kristen has been amazing. They’re the kind of couple that exudes genuine happiness together. It was refreshing to witness and capture their Finger Lakes wedding at Ventosa Vineyards.

Because of all of our work together in advance, everything had been perfectly planned. We felt relaxed and at ease all day which created a great atmosphere for their celebration. Their first look was just one of the highlights of the day for me. Jesse’s reaction to seeing Kristen for the first time was priceless.

I’ll let the pictures do the talking now, but congratulations Kristen and Jesse. Thank you for showing us your real selves and for allowing us to give these moments back to you in our photographs.

Geneva NY Wedding Photography: Club 86 with Kelley and Paul

Nearly 30 years ago, Kelley’s parents married in the same town, same church and held their reception in the same wedding venue in Geneva NY. When Kelley and I spoke about their wedding, I could feel the sentiment in her voice when she mentioned it.

What an honor.

Kelley and Paul met in high school, and have been on the road to each other since. As a singer / songwriting team they’re working their tails off traveling between Nashville and Pittsburgh chasing their dreams.

It was a beautiful day for their Seneca Lake wedding. Between the heartfelt notes to each other before the ceremony, the sunshine and the lake breeze, and the venue filled with family and friends it was everything it could have been and more.

And at their own reception, Paul and Kelley performed one of their own songs. It was such a touching moment, personalizing their already amazing day to perfection.

Paul and Kelley - Thank you for opening up your hearts and being your amazing selves on your wedding day. It was truly beautiful to witness and be a part of with you. Congratulations!

Cobblestone Creek Country Club Wedding, Victor NY: Shelly and Dylan

Though they went to high school together, it wasn’t until they worked together that they officially met. Together for six years, and now married for a few weeks Shelly and Dylan say they’re home bodies and old souls, loving on their puppy and each other.

Their late spring wedding was perfection compared to the onslaught of rainy days Rochester NY has seen recently. Between the sunshine, the blue skies and the colors all around us, it was a beautiful day.

After the bridal party was dressed and ready to go, we headed out onto the golf course their sweet little first look, followed by bridal party photographs and finishing up just in time to get their ceremony underway.

They said “I do”, and headed into the cocktail hour and dinner. And then the fun really swung into high gear with a party on the dance floor like no other. Everyone seemed to be out there early, and stayed out there all night long. It was impressive and exactly what they were hoping for!

Congratulations Dylan and Shelly - thank you for letting us be a part of telling this chapter of your history!

Ellison Park Rochester NY Engagement Session: Jessica and Keaton

This spring has been a game of dodging rain drops on the daily. It’s caused us more than a few rescheduled portrait and engagement sessions. So when their night came, and it wasn’t raining for just a few hours - we took advantage of it. It was cold (think winter engagement sessions in Rochester type cold), but Jessica and Keaton weren’t going to let that stop them.

They laughed through their shivering and went with every idea we gave them. As the daylight faded into night, we created beauty out of what could have been dreary Friday night. Thank you Jessica and Keaton for the laughs, the fun and trusting us to capture your relationship.
