High School Senior Session - Katelynn

Katelynn's Session at Canandaigua Lake


I'm still catching up on blogging about the wonderful class of 2018 students I was able to work with this summer, so now I have the privilege of introducing Katelynn to you!

She was so pleasant to work with and her family is just fantastic. We had a blast creating these images for her at Canandaigua Lake:

A Proposal Caught on Camera!

 Christine & Theo

When Theo first reached out to us, he asked us if we would take part in a huge surprise for his girlfriend, Christine. Well, we just love being a part of surprises so of course we jumped on board! The plan was to tell her he had won a photo session from a golf tournament and during the session, he would propose to her. 

He went all out for this special occasion and rented the Arbor Loft to ensure that weather wouldn't be able to interfere with anything.

The surprise worked and everything was pulled off flawlessly. We were thrilled to be entrusted with documenting such a beautiful event!!!

These guys were so awesome to work with! As you can see by their smiles and silliness, they are so happy and easy-going, which made photographing them a joy! It was a privilege to be a part of their special day and it was a day full of laughter for me as well :)

I had the privilege of photographing Kailey and Steve's wedding on a beautiful June day at the Cobblestone Wedding Barn. As you'll see from the images, this couple and their families and friends are full of emotion - smiles, laughter, and the occasional tear. Their happiness is evident and beautiful to observe and I'm so glad I got to be a part of their special day. Not to mention, it's the first wedding I've photographed where the bride's dad showed up in a helicopter!! Check out their images below:

Indian Wedding - DoubleTree Hotel, Rochester, NY


I had the privilege of photographing this stunning Indian wedding held at the DoubleTree Hotel in Henrietta, NY. Divya and Amit not only share a love for each other, but their families were so involved and showed so much love to each other as well . It was a beautiful and touching event to be a part of! The couple is just adorable and the guests all had a fantastic time. Check out their images below:


Makeup Inspiration from some of our lovely brides!

We love professional makeup artists and here's why:

Pro makeup artists know how to apply makeup that will look good on camera. The difference between a bride who had professional makeup done and a bride who did her own makeup is always noticeable in photos.

A good pro makeup artist knows how to factor in lighting and will bring out a bride's best features. 

And why wouldn't anyone want to look her best on the day she gets photographed more than any other day in her life?!

Check out these beautiful brides and their gorgeous makeup for inspiration!
