The Wedding Highlight Reel 2018: Rochester NY Wedding Photographers

What an amazing year 2018 was for our wedding couples. Normally our wedding season begins in the spring, but not last year. In 2018 we actually had our wedding season start in January with a windy 50 degree day for Ryan and Stephanie. So you can imagine how many amazing moments we were able to capture.

The thing you’ll notice most about them, is that they’re full of emotion, love, family and friends and fun. Nothing makes us happier than capturing these real moments for you.

The emotions shared are real - tears of joy, laughter and excitement. The moments are real - they won at the casino, they danced and played air guitar with broomsticks, the flower girl chased the flower petals that blew away. The bridal parties were always fun and supportive.

It was truly an amazing year, filled with wedding couples that we believe we were meant to meet and share their day with. It’s always an honor to be asked to photograph these moments that truly cannot be replaced.

So if you were one of our 2018 couples - thank you for your trust and for being amazing human beings. We’re honored and grateful for you every single day.

2017 Wedding Review: Finger Lakes NY Wedding Photographers

When your wedding season begins with a couple stopping for pizza and ends with a dozen adoptable dogs at a cocktail hour - you know you're doing something right.

Simply put, 2017 was an amazing year of weddings.

Here's just a few reasons why:

1) They were unique: Our first wedding of the season, and we're stopping for pizza. Cristin and Michaela also threw the most amazing reception at the Rochester Museum and Science center, including an epic bridal party dance off throw down.

2) Vineyards: Whether it was a sunset ceremony at Knapp Vineyards, or quiet time together at Casa Larga, Ventosa Vineyards or even Becker Farms. The grapes were a gorgeous, prominent part of many of our wedding images this year.

3 Sunsets: Because oh golden hour magic, how we love thee so.

4) Relaxed elegance: Our couples added so many fun, relaxed touches to their elegant wedding days and portraits. Like s'mores, campfires and hanging out with very friendly horses at The Wadsworth Homestead in Geneseo.

5) Cocktail hour on a boat? Why yes, please! Amanda and Vince's Lockport Locks boat cruise was one of the most unique ways to host cocktail hour that we've ever experienced.

6) New Venues: We were so lucky to capture weddings at some new places this year. The Wintergarden by Monroe's, Becker Farms, Shadow Lake, Statler City and so many more. From Rochester to the Finger Lakes to Buffalo - it felt like we were always experiencing somewhere new!

7) Puppies! Matt and Ellen killed it with hosting Rescued Treasures Pet Adoptions during their cocktail hour at the Port of Rochester. Because who wouldn't want to play with puppies at a wedding?!

8) Playfulness: We loved that our couples were up for fun. You might think being silly can seem out of place at a wedding - but what better way is there to enjoy the day?

9) Realness: Above all the rest, what an honor to see real emotions, true friends, love and so much joy from our couples and their families. Soooo many genuine reactions in wedding day photographs. It reminds me of how much trust is put in us on such a beautifully important day. I mean, really when a groom cries, my heart melts.
