Rena: Fairport High School Senior Photos

People tell her she has an amazing smile and gorgeous eyes. They're not wrong. Rena's also super fun to be around, creative and has a beautiful soul.

Her senior portrait session had a little bit of everything! We did a combination of urban and rural, to show multiple sides of her personality. We even included Tripp, the family dog in some images, and also photographed a great, three generations portrait with mom and grandma!

We had a really nice evening, despite the wind, and Rena just rocked the whole shoot. I love the colors and expressions, and man was this fun! Leave Rena some love in the comments if you enjoy these images as much as we do.  :)

Ashlyn: Senior Portraits in Canandaigua NY

Ashlyn in 5 words: Friendly, happy, bright, fun, & exciting.

Ashlyn is a senior at Pittsford Sutherland, but wanted to venture a little farther away to make her senior photos unique. Canandaigua has such great architecture, murals, and the lake, of course. What more could you ask for? We had a great day exploring the area and making some fun images. Check it out!

If you are looking for a unique twist on your senior photos, give us a call! 

And Ashlyn- have a great year!

Grace: Senior portraits at Sonnenburg Gardens & Eastman Theatre!

Grace describes herself as relaxed, classy, simple, original, and fun. I'd have to add sweet, talented and humble. We began her session at Sonnenburg Gardens in Canandaigua and finished at the Eastman Theatre in downtown Rochester. Although we could have spent all day exploring the gardens of Sonnenburg, Grace plans to study music education, so getting some time at the theatre just had to happen with her senior session!

Grace just rocked that red dress at Eastman Theatre. I loved listening to her play while passers by complimented her! It was truly a fun and gorgeous evening with a great girl. 

Oh, and if you are looking for some live music at your next event, check out the Grace Frarey Band! 

Thanks for such a fun session, Grace! Have a great summer!

Monica - Fairport Senior Photos

She came to me with an idea. Monica said, 'Can we shoot in Canandaigua?' I'm always game for anything, and it turned out to be an amazing place for photos. We walked around downtown, incorporated the murals and architecture, and ended up down by the water. It was a wonderful evening, and we had so much fun. Monica is the Stage Manager this year for Fairport High School, so she surprised me by being a natural in front of the camera! I loved her red shoes, fabric filled suit case and bubbly personality. blog_0162.jpg blog_0160.jpg blog_0161.jpg blog_0158.jpg blog_0159.jpg

Monica-- thank you for a fun session! Have a great year!

Ben & Brittney : Canandaigua NY Wedding Photography

The day they got married was also their anniversary. Wait, what? It's true, Brittney and Ben have been together for 11 years, and engaged for 2 years- both on the very same day in May. And now, their wedding anniversary falls on that very same date every year. I guess you could say they'll never have an excuse to forget their anniversary!

The day was gorgeous, a slight breeze with and a beautiful view at their home in Canandaigua. The ceremony and reception were both held overlooking a pretty pond on the property. It was nothing short of beautiful.

Some touching and fun moments came out of their short ceremony - including one during the ring exchange where the cute, little ring bearer proudly let everyone know what his job entailed. Their reception was casual, fun and pretty. Everything was what it should be for Ben and Brittney -complete with bonfire, dancing and a great sunset.

Congratulations to a wonderful couple, on a fantastic wedding day!  ~ Erin
