Amanda and Brian were absolutely the sunshine on a cloudy wedding day. These two are so happy and so in love, it was such a fun day! We started out at Bellezza Salon and then headed to finish preparations at the Wadsworth Homestead in Geneseo. What a gorgeous estate, inside and out! Everyone was buzzing around getting ready, it was a really happy and excited atmosphereI love this shot so much… bridesmaids have many duties, not the least of which is making sure deodorant is dry!

Erica and Pete are such a sweet couple! We had a wonderful engagement over the winter and they are so great together! They kind of met via facebook: Pete had his eye on Erica and friended her, and for the first date asked her to his fraternity formal. She was nervous about going to the event with someone she’d never met, but clearly it worked out!
Erica was so calm the morning of the wedding. Love her happy expression contrasted with her sister’s, lol! There was a lot of lacing up the back of the wedding dress, I’d be daunted too!
We did a first look across from the Sherwood Inn in Skaneateles.
Ormond Entertainment crafted a fantastic party, everyone was having a great time!
MVP was a very very easy choice… the garter toss seemed like it was going to be pretty standard but as soon as Pete threw it this guy came majestically leaping across the scene looking like the Michael Jordan silhouette. I mean look at that form! And the height! Incredible. Plus I love that Pete looks like he’s giving some major speech, and you can see the garter just to the right of Pete’s ear. God I love this shot!
Thank you so much for letting me be part of your day Erica and Pete, it was a great one!!
What a fantastic season 2014 has been so far! I have had the kindest, most adorable couples. Aliya and Justin were certainly no exception. These two are so sweet. They wanted to read cards they’d written to each other before the ceremony, but didn’t want to see each other. The hotel we were at didn’t have a lobby so finding a good corner in which to do this was a bit tough! I was glad to find this out-of-the-way and very simple spot for this shot, it worked out pretty well and Aliya and Justin were able to have a private moment before the ceremony.
We have a first in the ongoing Wedding MVP competition… I am almost certain this is the first time an inanimate (mostly) object has snagged the title. One of Justin’s good friends, Kevin, was unable to be at the wedding because of work so Aliya had a life sized cardboard cutout made of him. Kevin was the life of the party! He showed up at the ceremony and reception and he got a bit handsy with the guests but that Kevin is such a charmer… how could you even be mad?
What a long wait I had for Rob and Allie’s wedding! Rob got in touch with me last January and he and Allie were so kind and engaging, I really could not wait for this day! Since they were planning from out of town we didn’t officially meet until the wedding. Rob and his groomsmen were looking fresh!
When we started with Rob and Allie’s wedding pictures, one sunbeam came out and you’d think it was the apocalypse… I started yelling for them to get over to the fountain, dropped half my gear on the ground and ran over to get some sweet backlight… love it! We got so lucky with that little break in the clouds!
We headed to the Lodge for the reception, it looked gorgeous as always! Thanks to Wildflowers for the lovely floral arrangements and Visa Versa Entertainment for some nice lighting and a killer party!
What a gorgeous day for Kylie and Jeff’s wedding! Kylie found me through Kylee, and it is now my mission to photograph all the Kylie/e’s in central NY! Kylie and Jeff have been together for about 8 years, so this wedding was the kind where everyone is already friends… so much fun! Look at Kylie’s lovely dress!
The wedding was at Turning Stone Casino, there are some really pretty views from the tower so of course I wanted to incorporate that into some of the detail shots. Thankfully these gorgeous Badgley Mischka shoes can hold their own next to such nice scenery!
What a perfect day we had for Sarah and Mike’s wedding! All week it showed storms for Saturday, but it magically changed the morning of the wedding to partly cloudy. We really lucked out, it would be such a shame to miss out on the gorgeous wedding ceremony spot at Bristol Harbour! Big thanks to Elizabeth and Jen of Elizabeth Duncan Events for putting together a perfect event!
But then they’re so cute, I just have to! Sarah and Mike met at an education conference and immediately hit it off. Mike, fearing Sarah was too good to be true, predicted their connection would flame out quickly. When he read that entry from his journal during his vows, I let out a legit guffaw. It was super cool. Trust.
Another highlight of the vows was when Mike was listing Sarah’s wonderful qualities and included “You’re a Steelers fan, but you’re not a terrible person.” HA HA HA. Oh man. As someone who once had to attend a Steelers fan club meeting for a shoot (and also has eyes/ears) I totally feel that. So funny!
The reception was fantastic thanks to Rich at Encore Events, such a great mix the dance floor was packed all night! MVP was secured within the first 15 minutes or so of open dancing… Joanna busted out the sweetest 90’s moves to the likes of Heavy D and Digital Underground. There was an intensity and sense of a higher purpose behind those moves I haven’t seen in a long while. It was spectacular.
