{ Couple Portraits } Rochester, NY modern couple and engagement photographer

Are you a fan of D'Marie Photography on Facebook yet? There are special contests and promotions ONLY offered on the fan page, so make sure you join! This couple won a contest for a FREE session!

The weather couldn't have been better, and we tried out some great new locations.

The more I look at this one, the more it is becoming my absolute favorite from the day!!

I don't get the opportunity to shoot with a lot of barns, but they are always awesome backdrops!!

I love a good candid moment.

I make all of my clients rock a serious look for at least a few shots! :-)

Our last stop included some RR tracks, and another one of my favorites from the session!

It was so great to work with you guys again. I hope you love them so far! I'll be in touch soon!!

{ Spring Wedding } rochester, ny modern wedding photographer

Wedding season is in full swing, there's no looking back now! I've mentioned before that I have only accepted a very limited number of weddings myself this year (for personal and business reasons) but I am 2nd shooting a dozen or so with Chelse from EIEIO Photography (Glow Photography)! [ ]

The weather wasn't super cooperative on Saturday, but the bride & groom had great indoor venues so it didn't matter!

Ceremony at Chapel Hill downtown... stunning architecture but still a small, quaint feel in the seating. WOW!!

Portable studio lighting for the formals - don't worry if your venue is black as night, I've got you covered!

When there is a balcony for me and a videographer in the aisle below, his little on-camera light works wonders on the recessional. Favorite bride & groom exit shot ever!

Uh, too cute for words this little guy with his sock monkey!!

On to the City Atrium. Just a block away from the County Clerk, and similar but it has gorgeous natural light! (no grand staircases though, so it's a trade off)

Here's a fun outtake of Chelse hard at work, hee hee.

And one of the whole group while I was up on the 2nd floor. It's so sweet how the bride & her two sisters are all holding hands!

Reception at the Webster Golf Club, and lots of fun with the photobooth!!

What an awesome start to the season!!

{ Twin 3 year portraits } Rochester, NY modern child & family portrait photographer

A family I met last fall came in for the kids 3 year portraits... I can't believe how much they've grown in just a few months!

I love the special bond between twins:

The kids individually, showing off some personality!

A quick outfit & backdrop change! (I love this feature of sessions this year... it's your time, do whatever you want with it! 3 outfits, no problem!) Man did I get a workout for this shot. We played a version of musical chairs to get them both to sit at the same time. Love the genuine smiles!

One last outfit change and a promise of "please just stand here for this last shot & you can be DONE". :-) The serious faces ROCK!! I would want a big 16x20 of this one because it is just TOO COOL!

Thanks for coming in, it was great to work with you again!! And I'll be seeing Mom & Dad later this month for their couples session, woo hoo. (Facebook contest winner! Not a fan yet? Search D'Marie Photography and look for the gold leaf logo!)

{ Corporate Portraits } Rochester, NY modern headshot photographer

A great company that I've worked with a few times before came in for updated headshots a week or so ago. The ones on their website are a few years old and they've added some new personnel as well. It's a lot of pressure when I'm shooting for a website... these images are going to be viewed many, many times and could be the first impression for a potential client!

This is the CEO, a wonderful guy!

A few other executives:

They also needed a group shot...something modern and casual. Maybe my favorite group shot ever!!

Need some new headshots for your business? Let me know!
