Ashlee + Tony [married]

I have no idea how I get so lucky.  Adoring couples, gorgeous weddings, perfect weather, you know, the stuff dreams are made of.  Their dreams, my dreams, we all end up blissfully happy!

Ashlee and Tony (who's brother's wedding I shot last year) were married this past Saturday at St. John's in Spencerport.  I was beaming when I first met with Ashlee and Tony who had mentioned something about a horse, and a mansion.  I LOVE different, out of the box, not the normal wedding type ideas.  I get inspired, creative and excited when I'm not shooting in the same location time after time.  Before the ceremony and after the Hyatt we quickly headed over to Ashlee's mom's house to capture some moments between her and her horse.  Unfortunately, Ashlee in full sparkly wedding attire, and the few of us on edge because the ceremony was supposed to start in 15 minutes, had been sensed by the horse and I knew I only had a few clicks to get what I could.  We then headed over to St. Johns for the ceremony.  Afterwards we were privileged to shoot at the Strong-Todd mansion (yes as in Henry Strong, first president of Kodak, has a large hospital named after him).  A complete DREAM, I wish I had hours with them there.  Time was not endless, they had a party to attend, and off to Blue Heron we were.  Lora Ann Photography second shot for me, love that girl, I just have to figure how to get her Nikon images off the cards with my Canon only skills.  and now I'll shut up and post some images....

Stephanie + Patrick [married]

I cannot explain the gorgeousness that happened this past Saturday. Steph and Pat were married at Locust Hill on a perfect overcast day, morning rain for good luck and just the right amount of sunshine to make your heart smile. What I adore so much in wedding photography is the moments, the feelings, watching the nervousness turn into pure joy. I love being a part of what makes two people, two families, come together and share their love with each other. Tears of joy excite me, sometimes too much.

Where do I begin?

I am amazed that an ENTIRE year has almost passed since my last post. I'm actually quite embarrassed. How am I supposed to share with you all of the wonderful things I have been doing and show you the wonderful people I have met along the way if I'm not posting about them?!!!
I'll start with a few of my favorite kid and family sessions.....
