Leslie and Dan’s wedding was one that was full of heart from the smallest details - right up to the biggest ones. Leslie and Dan both come from families who have Farmed for several generations. Farming is what brought them together and so it was only fitting that the best place for them to celebrate this special day was right on their farm. It truly was breathtaking to experience this wedding, from the tent tucked away into their field to the pond and the the pasture - their property is beautiful.
From the bottom of our hearts we are honored to share our version of this wonderful day . We loved being there to capture the details, the love, and the joy as friends and family members embraced, laughed, danced and celebrating the love that brought them all together on this perfect day.
On an August afternoon, down a stone lined path and through beautiful gardens Rachel and Nick celebrated their love for each other and got married surrounded by everyone they love.
This Sonnenberg Gardens wedding was equal parts beautiful, heartfelt and fun! The gardens were a beautiful backdrop for this love story to take such a huge new step. Friendship seemed to be the theme of the day as we learned what amazing friends Nick and Rachel are to everyone they know - and in return, the support and love from their friends flooded over them on this very special day. As the night rolled on, this became one heck of a party as the dance floor was buzzing all night!
We are so excited to share this look at such an amazing wedding day!
Amanda and Justin are getting married October 20th 2018, and we couldn’t be happier to be photographing their intimate garden wedding in the Buffalo botanical gardens. Being a couple that started out on opposite ends of the country, this wedding will bring together families from far and wide for the first time to celebrate. Justin’s family will be coming from Texas to take part in the day.
Julianne and Aaron are one of those couples that are so clearly best friends that it’s hard to picture one without the other. They wear their love for each other in their smiles and the way their whole faces light up when they’re together. We already knew going into this wedding how wonderful Julianne and Aaron were, and it was really inspiring to meet their family and friends and see the group of people surrounding them with so much love and support as they celebrate such an amazing time in their lives.
Maureen and Rob are two fantastic people and we couldn't be happier for them that they are engaged! Their love is so effortless; it's a friendship, its laughing, it's passion - it's all of the things that make a relationship great. We really enjoyed this session as we walked around Rochester - stopping at the Genesee Brewery where the two enjoy going on dates, Rochesters Cornhill area, and a last stop at Swift water. It was a session full of silliness and personality and all of the things that make these two so wonderful, and so perfect for each other.
We were so excited to witness this wedding day - years in the making. Jessica recalls fondly the way she felt for Matt even back in her teen years. She has had a love for him that was sparked years ago and even though their lives briefly took different paths, destiny brought them right back to where they were always meant to be - together.
The story of Matt and Jessica is one of strength and attests to the depth of their love and the power it has.
We met with Aaron and Julianne in Letchworth State park this summer only a few weeks prior to their wedding. The couple love hiking and exploring nature and especially Letchworth, as its our local treasure here in Mt. Morris. It was a beautiful day and as we hiked with them, talked with them, and saw the depth of their love for each other - we became more and more excited about their upcoming wedding. Their compatibility and chemestry was undeniable and we loved hearing the story of their engagement. We had a lot if fun getting to know them as they reminisced about their pasts and shared their plans of all the things their future might hold.
Ben and Michelles wedding was truly like stepping into a fairytale. They planned every bit of the day to feel magical! Their wedding so perfectly captured their fun personalities and after a day of celebration, and the sun set - the pair twirled around the dance floor as husband and wife you could see their happily ever after playing out right before our eyes.
Cheers to one of my best friends finding the love of her life!
Cheers to a man who stepped into 3 girls lives and showed them unconditional love!
Cheers to a family made up of people who choose every single day to work together, grow together and love with all they've got.

Matt and Jessica have a silly and fun love which keeps them happy and laughing together - but they also have a deep, strong love that has been their backbone as they have faced some of lives toughest moments together; truly relying on each other for support. They have created a bond that has seen them through hard times and also brought them some of their happiest moments and memories. We couldn't be happier for these two sweet souls as they celebrate their engagement and plan for their upcoming wedding.
Tyler and Kaylee met at work and feelings quickly grew. It didn't take long for Tyler to not only fall in love with Kaylee, but to open up his heart to Kaylee's son Archer as well. The three of them make a pretty adorable family and as they celebrate their happiness with an engagement and wedding planning - we couldn't be any happier for them!
We met up with these two beauties at the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens to capture some of that newly engaged glow.
Alan and Racheals love story started years ago, and hundreds of miles away when the pair met in a small bar. Falling in love and having Ethan made this duo a family and started them off on an adventure that would fill their lives with more joy and happiness then either one could have ever dreamed for when they said their first "hello". Their life is a blessed one - they work hard for the wonderful things they have, and they cherish their family, friends and each other.
The day was truly filled with joy. In a beautiful country barn, Alan and Racheal had a rustic country wedding that brought friends and family from near and far to laugh, dance and celebrate. We felt honored to be there to capture the day as these two said their vows and cemented the love and appreciation they have for each other by sharing a last name.
Cheers to Alan, Racheal and Ethan - The Hall Family
The right place at the right time is how Courtney and Jason's love story starts. The pair both frequented Brickwood Grill in Rochester NY and eventually met and started dating - flash forward to the present and they are now planning a spring wedding in April of 2019. We had so much fun exploring around Rochester's Village gate and we feel lucky to be documenting such a sweet and silly love.
Chris and Rachel are truly one of the most devoted couples we have ever photographed. Their support for each other and dedication to the life they are building is front and center in their relationship. Life for Chris and Rachel became a whirlwind as they quickly fell in love, became engaged, bought a home and filled it with their puppies. Knowing their love for each other was so strong made photographing their wedding that much more special.
At Hickory Ridge Golf Resort in Holley NY, these two exchanged their vows and promised their forever to each other. It was a beautiful ceremony and a fun and exciting reception and we are so excited to share it here!
Bryan and Julia met while working together. When Julia first saw Bryan, she said she new she was in trouble. Bryan was shy, and waited three months before he finally spoke to her. When they finally went out for the first time they decided to go for a hike in letchworth, and it must have been fate, because over a year later we walked through the park with them together, her in a wedding dress and him in a suit.
Every detail of the day was wonderful from start to finish, and we feel so honored to have been there to capture such a perfect wedding! Julia and Bryan completely adore each other and they wear their happiness all over their faces. Congratulations to you Mr. and Mrs. Wood!!
We first met Ian and Kahlie when they responded to a post we made to help find homes for some neighborhood kittens - so, if that doesn't prove to you that they are awesome right away i don't what will. They came and gave one of the kittens a great home, and we followed them on facebook and instagram to keep up with pictures of the cat, and also because we just instantly felt like they were super cool - and we weren't wrong. Both of them being artists, we are always inspired by the work they post, and enjoy seeing the newest things they are creating.
We really enjoyed our time strolling around their neighborhood in Rochesters South Wedge. They are creative's, who live a pretty rad little life, with their cute-as-hell apartment full of antiques, art and their fuzzy friends as proof.
We feel so lucky that the world brings people like this into our life.
- Check out some photos of two of the coolest people we know being 100% in love!
As friends and family started arriving to Terry Hills Golf Course the whole room was filled with excitement. Guests found their name and seating card in a card catalog - which was a perfect touch to Scott and Jessica's book themed wedding.
We love weddings that are filled with both sentimental moments and laughter - and Scott and Jessica's perfectly illustrated both their fun side and their sincere love for each other. With a room full of friends and family, it was clear that the room was filled with people who were abundantly happy for Scott and Jessica.
Margaret and Colin's wedding was one that honestly took our breath away so many times throughout the night. It was elegant and romantic, but also so much fun! The beautiful Inns of Aurora were breathtaking - From the regal properties down to the view of the lake, it was such a dreamy setting for a wedding. Friends and family filled the rooms of the lakeside homes, and filled the air with excitement and energy as so many wonderful people came together for such a treasured day. Many people traveled great distances to share in celebration as Margaret and Colin exchanged their vows and became husband and wife. Dancing filled the night, and laughter danced across the lake as everyone shared joy and excitement!
This lovely fall day in Letchworth State park was filled with colorful foliage, a very full Genesee river creating a roaring waterfall and the laughter of Taylor and Kyle as they danced through the woods and shared stories with us. We love that they met in high school and six years later, they still adore each other so much!
Nothing is better than being able to capture a love story that we believe so much in. Our friendship with Chris began so long ago and we can still remember hearing about his first date with Leanne and eventually having him open up to us about Leanne, and how strongly he felt for her. Through the years we have felt inspired by them; seeing how they've pushed through the challenges presented to them, and watching them not only hurtle those obstacles, but do so with ease and confidence knowing that they had each other to lean on. Chris and Leanne - you are powerful people and we know nothing will get in your way! We love you both very much and we are so proud to know you and to say that you are our friends!
We couldn't be more excited, to share Tanya and Ryan's blog. These photos mean a lot to us. Tanya and Ryan are such a gorgeous couple but they are also fun, sweet and absolutely smitten with each other. As photographers, we couldn't ask for anything sweeter than two people full of emotion and landscapes that take our breath away; Romantic woodlands, fields of wildflowers, a meadow with a beautiful old oak tree and golden sunshine, and a giant fallen tree were the backdrop to this lovely afternoon.
A perfect summer day, a beautiful couple madly in love, family, friends, flowers everywhere and lots of dancing!
The Fitch wedding was one for the books! As butterflies were released after there ceremony I couldn't help but feel completely in awe of all the work Kelli did to make her day absolutely perfect. On top of serving our country in the military, serving our community as a state trooper and supporting her fiancé as he finished up the Academy to become a state trooper himself - she found the time to make homemade jam for all of her guests, beautifully and artfully arrange her own flowers and fill her wedding with all the dreamy details that made the day so uniquely their own.
In the end, the most beautiful part of this wedding was the love story that inspired the whole thing! Kelli and Andrew are wild about each other and thats something we were happy to be celebrating!
Molly and Brian's wedding was so beautiful. Set on a valley top golf course, the views were breathtaking. The sky wanted to rain, but held out through the wedding, making a beautiful cloudy sky. Inside, the vintage decor, and handmade centerpieces and details were so pretty. An early 20th century typewriter sat, fully functioning, for guests to enter little messages into. Black and white photographs of Brian and Molly's childhood were a focal point of table settings, and with them the nostalgia that ensues swept over the guests - most of whom have known Brian or Molly their entire lives. It was so wonderful to watching as these two families came together as one around Brian and Molly.
Sean and Andrea have spent 9 years together! They were introduced by close friends and soon fell in love. They are the kind of people who build strong friendships and truly cherish the people in their life. They appreciate the love and the support system they have in their friends and families who have been by their side through the toughest of times and now they are excited to get the chance to share new happy memories as they get married surrounded by the wonderful people in their life.

Lizzy is working on her Nursing degree while Brendan serves our country and though they may be taking individual paths, there is no doubt that they are both heading towards the same dream and we just think their strength and commitment to each other is absolutly beautiful!!
Enjoy this couples session in Vitale Park
What better way to celebrate 8 years together than a wedding?
Brenelle and Mike have already made years full of memories, they share a home, a dog, and they have an adorable daughter named Lucy. This wedding was about celebrating all they have already built together, and dedicating the rest of their years to continuing to keep this love story one thats full of romance, family and laughter.

When we first met Michelle and Ben, we were really excited to hear about their wedding plans! What could be more exciting than a fairy tale wedding?! Ben and Michelle are planning a Disney Tangle themed wedding in a castle in Tonawanda NY.
We really enjoyed spending the day with them as we photographed them throughout Letchworth park and after seeing how much they adore each other, we can't wait to cry at their wedding!
Colin and Margaret met and fell in love on the campus of the University of Rochester so it was fitting to have their engagement pictures taken there.
We had a great time following them around while they strolled the courtyard, spent some time in their favorite part of the library and walked along the Geneseo river. We love their adventurous spirits and their fun and playful love for each other.
Margaret and Colin are planning a September wedding at the beautiful Inns of Aurora.
Felix and Emily's big day is one that had our hearts completely mush. These two are so in love, and so in sync that it really is hard to imagine that they have ever lived without each other. Felix was so attentive to Emily throughout the whole day, always one step ahead of her. When she cried - he wiped her tears, when she was ready to have fun - he was right there with her leopard print flask.
We love Emily's style, and her wedding put that full on display. Her beautiful blush dress paired with her leather jacket, biker boots and skull earrings perfectly illustrated Emily's personality. It was this tough exterior of Emily's that had Felix wondering is she hated him the first time they met - but if you ask Emily at what point in their relationship she knew he was the one she'll tell you "The minute I saw him for the first time."
Heather and Michael were married on March 5th in an intimate and emotional ceremony in Pittsburg PA where the couple lives. A few days later the pair packed up and adventured on a little road trip to Buffalo NY with their little girl Brooklyn. We felt honored to be photographing their love, and excited just to be seeing them. We loved getting to meet Brooklyn as she fluttered around the Gardens with her little flower crown, and having time to visit with Michael and Heather as we took pictures.
The Buffalo Botanical Gardens is one of our favorite places for photography. Its actually one of our favorite places to BE. We are plant nerds and so we love greenhouses in general because we enjoy being around so many beautiful plants. The light coming through the conservatory is a photographers dream and so we were so happy to escape the cold Buffalo Winter day while taking photos in this sunny green oasis.
