{ Wedding: Sarah & Andrew } rochester & fingerlakes weddingphotographer, ny

Ceremony & Reception location: Bellhurst Castle
DJ: Rick from the Music

Sarah was a stunning bride and knew just how to rock that bird cage veil!

Absolutley beautiful...

A HOT July day, over 95 degrees with lots of sunshine for an amazing outdoor ceremony.

The sky was perfect on their special day...

Even with the scorching heat we were able to capture some gorgeous formal shots in only 15 minutes...

What a couple.

Everyone needs a few of these fun shots too...

Personal details were everywhere... Sarah even brought in blue lighting to add the "WOW" factor to their reception. In all the times I have shot there, this was the first time I'd seen anything like it!

Quite the modern trend these days are some delectable cupcakes at your reception, and these were delicious.

A memorable evening followed with some great group shots, tons of dancing and second dress for Sarah!

Sarah and Andrew, may you have a lifetime of the love and laughter...

The perfect guy; the perfect venue; the perfect dress. Make it all matter.

{ Wedding: Rachel & Jeff - Woodcliff } rochester, ny wedding photographer

Ceremony & Reception:Woodcliff

DJ: Scott Mucica of Go Sound Systems

Favors: homemade at the bride & groom's pizza shop, Mac's Pizza and Grill

Another near miss with the rain, Rachel & Jeff's day was PERFECT. A bit of sunshine led to some amazing photo ops, with the perfect amount of cloud cover for the formal photos.

(Did you know photographers prefer to work when it's cloudy vs. sun? The light is softer so there isn't as much squinting :-)

The entire event was held at Woodcliff and it was spectacular! Rachel had a 2-floor suite to enjoy preparing for the "BIG DAY!" Her small wedding party of two made it relaxing and enjoyable...

An outdoor ceremony on the back lawn, formals in the garden, cocktail hour around the pool, and an elegant reception inside.

What a great idea for guests.... a LEMONADE STAND to enjoy while waiting for the ceremony to begin. The bride's cousin was in charge and it was a huge hit!

I work hard to fit photography into your schedule, not the other way around. Rachel & Jeff wanted to accomplish all of the formals in 45 minutes- family, bridal party, and bride & groom images. With a very cooperative family, and small bridal party, this was easily accomplished!

Just a few of the gorgeous bride & groom photos we were able to capture in 10-15 minutes! Then they got to enjoy cocktail hour for a bit with their guests before dinner.

Who doesn't love a few personal touches on a priceless day?

Delicious, homemade favors for the guests... YUM!

A beautiful, touching, and fun evening followed at the reception!

Rachel and Jeff, May you enjoy each and every moment of your forever...


The perfect guy; the perfect venue; the perfect dress. Make it all matter.
