Artisan Works, Rochester NY Wedding Photographers: Carol and Jeff

Carol and Jeff created a wedding day where fun was the top priority.

We began at Corn Hill Landing for their first look with the city skyline behind them. It was sweet, and fun and included their bridal party towards the end. From there we moved on to Highland Park and the Sunken Gardens in Rochester for bridal party photographs and time together with each other.

After the fun and festivities of photographs, we headed to Artisan Works for their ceremony and reception, which was nothing short of lovely and full of real emotion.

There were a few bumps in the day, as there always are - but we’ve learned that these two are capable of pivoting with style and grace. And in the end, the day was fantastic - because Carol and Jeff, got married.

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!

Shadow Lake Wedding Photography, Penfield NY: Christina and Adam

Photographing Adam and Christina’s Fairport wedding felt like coming home. In more ways that one. And not just because we were only ever 10 minutes from home at any given moment.

It felt like home because of the people - these two, and their families are practically family to us. Their wedding kicked off our season with not only the best weather imaginable for an early April day in Rochester, but also the best people and awesome vendors.

We felt peace throughout the house when we arrived, even the flower girls were calm and ready for the day ahead. Because we had planned everything together so thoroughly, all there was left to do was enjoy the day.

And they did. The ceremony at Church of the Assumption in Fairport was love filled and emotional. We met up with Larry (their goldendoodle) and a crowd favorite for his close up on the canal in Fairport. There was even enough time for a snack from McDonalds before heading over to Shadow Lake for their reception. (Which if you haven’t seen their renovations and are looking for a Rochester area wedding venue - stop in there for sure.)

It was the perfect wedding to begin another year as wedding photographers in Rochester NY. We had waited for this day with them for so long. To witness it and be part of it meant everything to us and left us feeling inspired for the season ahead.

Congratulations to you Christina and Adam - thank you for enriching our lives with who you are, individually and together.

Rochester NY Elopement: Josh and Kellyanne

They love the woods and outdoors - zip lines, ropes courses, hiking. So naturally, Josh proposed to KelleyAnne on the top of Mt. Monadnock in New Hampshire. Kelleyanne had an idea that his proposal was coming earlier on Mt. Wachusett but Josh thought the mountain was too small.

Their love is full of happiness and laughter. There was no lack of either on their wedding day at The Edward Harris House in Rochester NY. With close friends as their witnesses, they said their vows to each other - laughing the whole way.

Congratulations Josh and Kelleyanne! We wish you a life full of adventure and even more laughter!
