Rachel and Olivier's Ithaca Wedding

Ah, back to work after a few weeks off, and what a way to start!  Rachel and Olivier (or, Doctor and Doctor... seriously, I think almost everyone in the wedding party is, or will soon be, a doctor... infact, I think I accidentally became a doctor just from hanging out with them all day.  Good…

My little sis is a Mrs!

Whew, it's been a crazy couple of weeks here!  My sister Maureen got married on Saturday the 19th, and I had just about forgotten what it was like to be on the other side of a wedding! :) It was my first time as Maid of Honor, and it's quite a job, but worth every…

Cristyn and Mark's Honeoye Falls Wedding

I'm always a little extra excited for a wedding where I've done an engagement shoot with the couple.  It's always a fun time to get to know eachother and get used to being photographed- we learned at their engagement that Mark has a special talent for posing! Their wedding was just beautiful, the ceremony was…

Tiffany and Victor's Rochester Wedding

Tiffany and Victor got hitched at Deerfield Country Club in Brockport this weekend.  The ceremony was planned for outdoors, but they decided to play it safe and have it indoors after the hysteria-inducing weather forecasts (gale force winds! torrential rain! hail! four horsemen!  Well, maybe not the last one.)  The weather turned out to be…

Browsers and colors!

Hello Firefox users!  I just recently switched from Safari to Firefox and love everything about it... except the color.  Which, of course, to me is very important!  The color was dull, muddy and kinda greenish, but someone just posted this awesome color profile switch on my favorite photography forum, and it takes about two seconds…

Corinne and Matt are married!

I had the pleasure of photographing Corinne and Matt's wedding in Skaneateles this weekend. It was a great celebration full of friends, family and cool details. I feel like a broken record, but the weather was again grey and rainy early in the day but it cleared up nicely after the ceremony, which was extra…

Michelle and Rob are married!

This weekend I traveled to New Hartford, NY to photograph Michelle and Rob's wedding. Once again we had clouds and rain, but it cleared up in time for the ceremony and pictures at Yahnundasis Golf Club. It actually rained for about 30 seconds on the five minute drive from the church to the club! I've…

Fun in Prison

Finally getting around to posting a few pictures from my trip to Philly/NYC... on day one, we took Matt and Kerri's Saab convertible (I named it Saabtimus Prime because when the top goes up and down it's just like a transformer...) to the train station and headed into the city to go the the American…

Cristyn and Mark

I met up with Cristyn and Mark, who are getting married on July 5th, to do a quick engagement shoot at Mendon Ponds. We had some great "golden hour" light, and had plenty of 4 legged company watching us shoot... a few dozen deer and one squirrel that I am pretty sure was trying to…

We ended up with a beautiful, sunny and sliiiiightly crisp Saturday, much to everyone's relief... The wedding was at Chapel Hill, which is so beautiful inside. The ceremony was…

Hidden Pictures

Do you guys remember the magazine Highlights from when you were kids? I looooved the "Hidden Pictures" pages, where you had to find... uh, well, hidden pictures in a drawing. Well, I found this shot on my friend Frank DiMeo's blog from the Revolution Workshop and had to post it here. I count at least…

Museums

I was recently assigned to photograph the opening of a new exhibit at the Rochester Museum and Science Center. I was excited about it because I love natural history museums... those were always my favorite field trips when I was little. The new exhibit is called "Expedition Earth: An Ever Changing Planet" and one of…

Ooops, it's been a while since I've posted! I have been keeping really busy working on weddings, meeting with clients and freelancing. I want to show you guys what I've been listening to while working lately... Rodrigo y Gabriela is easily the album of the year (okay, so it was released in 2006, but I…

Danielle and Trevor are engaged!

I'm really excited about my next two posts for a couple of reasons: the first is that I had so much fun shooting these engagements, and the second is that I shot these earlier in the fall and they're proving very helpful in my complete denial of winter. :) Danielle and Trevor will be married…

Hey, baby!

Catching up a bit here... this is a session with little Jack at 4 months (I think he's like 8 months now...oops!) He is such a handsome little guy, and is totally used to being a model now. I was at his house just a few weeks ago, and as soon as I walked in…

End of the Revolution

Okay, final post from the Revolution workshop... we did some cool stuff on day two: China Town, DUMBO and a nighttime rooftop shoot! Loved it. Shooting on the bridge was so funny... we caused a bit of a scene. We had a good-sized crew to start with, and other people kept stopping to watch, and…

Judi and Erik

Judi and Erik were married at St. Paul's church and had their reception aboard the Harbor Belle... this was my first water-bound reception! I was a little more worried than I usually am about falling over and breaking all my equipment :) but everything was just perfect. We also had a bit of time to…

Wendy and Erik at Colgate Divinity School

Another beautiful weekend, another beautiful wedding! Saturday started out a bit dreary but by the time the ceremony rolled around it was crisp and pretty clear... which is why I love October in New York! It didn't hurt that the day before I'd made the drive up from NYC, and the foliage was absolutely breathtaking.…

Dierdre and Mike in Watertown

I had the honor of shooting Dierdre and Mike's wedding this past weekend in Watertown. It was an unusually hot and humid October day, and Mike was the closest to passing out that I've ever seen anyone... it was a combo of nerves and heat, but it was so cute to see Dierdre reaching up…

Sarah and Chris at Belhurst

Sarah and Chris were married at Belhurst Castle on Sunday. They are such a cool pair- I love my couples! Chris wrote their Buddhist ceremony, and the guys all wore 100% hemp outfits (hemp is one of the most versatile, abundant and strong fibers around!) Their families, from Massachusetts and New Jersey, came together in…
