Rochester NY Proposal Photography: Jenn and Steph

Jenn called me a few days before in hopes that we were available to capture this momentous occasion in their lives. A scavenger hunt was afoot - and Stephanie had no idea it was about to happen.

Jenn had selected locations based on moments in their relationship for Stephanie to find her next clue, as well as their parents. She had gathered everyone together so that she could propose to Stephanie in the most romantic way possible.

The scavenger hunt ended at the Strathallan in Rochester NY, where Jenn got down on one knee and proposed to Stephanie. It was truly a beautiful thing to witness and share in this time of their lives.

Jenn and Steph, I wish you nothing but the best for a future of adventures together. Congratulations on your engagement!

Genesee Brew House Engagement Session: Jill & Travis

In talking about their engagement session, Jill asked me if I had any tips on how to be more natural in photographs. I gave her some ideas, but I’ll be honest - they didn’t need them.

From the very start at their engagement session at Highland Park, Jill and Travis were perfection. Laughing, snuggling, and more laughing. Perfection despite the bone chilling temperatures that often accompanies a winter engagement session.

After a stop at the park, we hit up the rooftop at the Genesee Brewhouse. The wind was chilly, but they danced and flirted, and laughed some more. They bring out each other’s silliness, which is exactly their natural state.

I’m already looking forward to their wedding day, just to see them laugh again.

The Playhouse, Swillburger Rochester NY Engagement Session: Helen and Tim

Their perfect evening is a good beer and sitting home together playing video games. Everyone has their thing together, and for these two it’s gaming. Naturally, the first idea that came to mind for their engagement session was heading downtown in Rochester for an engagement session at The Playhouse. Conveniently, this was also where they had their first date.

It was super perfect - from skee ball to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. They laughed and played and fake pouted when the other person beat them in a game. Along the way, we photographed who they really are as a couple.

After a drink and some games, we headed outside to Highland Park for a quick outdoor portion to their session. It was cold, but the light was perfect and they kept each other warm. We’re loving these Rochester winter engagement sessions lately. It seems to be making a come back, and we’re all for it!

Enjoy!

George Eastman Museum, Winter Engagement Session: Kyra and Alex

Believe it or not, with a little snow on the ground a winter engagement session can be just as beautiful as any other time of the year. We’re so glad that Kyra and Alex were up for the challenge while they were home for the holidays.

Kyra’s smile widened every time she looked up at Alex. Cuddling close (and a warm cup of coffee) helped to ease the cold in their extremities at their engagement session in Rochester NY at the Eastman Museum. Her red coat gives the images a perfect pop of color and was a great outfit choice for an engagement session during the holidays!

If you’re recently engaged and want to fit your engagement session into the winter - we’re game if you are! Aren’t Alex and Kyra amazing? Enjoy a few of our favorites! (With a cup of coffee if you have it!)

Corbett's Glen Engagement Session: Christina and Adam

Sweet. Adorable. Snuggly. Loveable.

But enough about their puppy, Larry.

We've been looking forward to this engagement session for a lonnnngg time. I think they have been too. They waited for the summer (it's their favorite time of year) to come and for their goldendoodle puppy to be ready.

But before all that, they waited for each other. Because of the wait, Christina and Adam are a perfect fit together. They're both educators. They're smart, sensitive and funny.

They remember down to the aisle (18a in Wegmans) where they had their first kiss on one of their first dates. We thought it'd be funny to recreate that scene, but Corbett's Glen, where they got engaged, won out.

It was such a fun morning with the three of them. We mostly laughed at Larry and his super cute playfulness. It was hot and humid for an engagement session in Penfield NY, but you'd never know it from looking at their awesome expressions and love.

Congratulations Adam and Christina, we're so happy that you've found each other, and cannot wait to be part of it all with you!
