It may not be the New York Times, but it's still kind of exciting to see your face on the cover of the newspaper. Not being under the "Arrests" or "Obituaries" column, well that's even better! Erin and I are super stoked to be highlighted in the Fairport-East Rochester Post this week. Check it out, and see if you recognize anyone. Now, you can say you know famous people!

Photographers Start New Partnership
About the Business
Wedding and portrait photographers Lori Coleman and Erin Perrotta each previously owned separate businesses, which offered clients many of the same services recently merged to start Lori and Erin Photography in Fairport. Here, they both share more about their new venture.
The movie, TV program or song that best portrays what your business is like: Wicked's "Defying Gravity," It's a song about being strong, and overcoming challenges. It reminds us that this is an amazing journey we're on with no limits to what we can achieve together.
Stroke of luck or moment of inspiration that made your business possible: We met at a Greater Rochester Professional Photographer's meeting in 2009. We each owned our separate businesses at the time. We quickly became friends, and have worked together ever since! Over the past year, we realized that we work best, when we work together instead of as competition.
Besides your business, the community's best kept secret is: There's always something to do, in every season! You just have to get out and enjoy it!
This item is always in your fridge at home: Both of us have the same answer- Milk! And maybe a bottle of wine for when friends stop by!
If you could have dinner with one person, living or dead, you'd choose:
Erin- I'd love to spend some time with my great-grandmother again. She was an amazing woman, and no famous person would rank higher than that!
Lori- My Aunt Michele. I admired her for so many reasons, but I really wish we could just chat about our dogs.
