Eagle Vale Golf Club Wedding | Rochester, NY | Ted & Lisa

Ted and Lisa are truly the shining example of sweetness. From the moment I met them their love for one another as well as their families just radiated. Their souls full of kindness and devotion. You could see the excitement pouring from them as we talked about their day and the plans they had in motion.

Their wedding day was no different. The Lord blessed them with a beautiful autumn day. The leaves and sun held a golden sparkle. The sunlight beamed gloriously through the stained glass windows as they united in holy matrimony.

Ted and Lisa said “i do” at the Greek Orthodox Church on South Ave in Rochester NY. The over joyed families celebrated the night away at Eagle Vale Golf Club. The evening was filled with fabulous entertainment provided by Turner Music Productions. The lovely flowers and center pieces flawlessly designed by Genesee Valley Florist and the festive cake was accompanied by an extravagant ice cream bar from Moonlight Creamery.

Ted and Lisa I wish you all the happiness in the world. May your lives be filled with constant joy and devotion to
each other.



Mr & Mrs Rhow

Where to even begin? The Rhow family has been near and dear to my heart for many years now.  It was such an amazing joy and honor to capture this special day for this extremely special family. I am over joyed that Brad and Alyssa tied the knott on June 23, 2012 at Shadow Lake Golf and Racquet Club. The day was absolutely perfect.

Keuka Lake, NY | Esperanza Mansion | Mr + Mrs Rockefeller

Many years of Joy and Happiness to you both. Love you guys!

Visual Explorations: Day 1

Often times I walk down Gibbs street hearing sweet music wishing I had a camera in hand. Finally I timed it right. This sweet old man serenades most local Java patrons. I wonder what his story is? His training? Did he attend the Eastman School of Music that he plays just outside of? What is his name? I am so fascinated by him, but I am so taken by the sweet melody mixed with coffee….oh I love coffee. What a perfect mix to one of Rochester’s perfect days. It is not often we have sun and melody at the same time.
