Beautiful, Joyful, and Authentic Wedding Photography for Rochester, NY and Surrounding Areas


Personally, I’ll take timeless and authentic over trendy any day. I believe authentic moments always make for more relevant, beautiful, and personal photographs. Because of this, it’s very important to me that your wedding pictures say something real about you and who you are as a couple at the beginning, on this day, together.

Below are some of the things I’ve learned in my 12 years as a full-time wedding photographer for couples in the Finger Lakes, Syracuse, Buffalo, Rochester, NY and beyond.

Photo-journalism- The most wonderful wedding pictures happen when couples and their loved ones are just having an amazing time just being themselves. Occasionally I’ll bring you and your friends into beautiful light, but mostly I’m anticipating moments and making great photos as they happen. This approach is really captures the spirit of the day.

A relaxed portrait-style approach is best- With portraits, I’ve learned that couples really appreciate being given some direction; it helps them feel more confident which really shows in pictures. With that said, I also believe there should be room and encouragement for people to be themselves. A little bit of direction, using a light approach with posing while allowing room for the spontaneous makes for wonderful pictures of real people.

Lastly, being a wedding photographer is my privilege and my joy. And joy is an important part of what makes me, me.  You can bet I’ll do everything I can to help you have a great time and savor all the joy with those you love on your wedding day. Just like beautiful photos, joy deserves to be shared:)

So, is this ringing any bells for you? If so, I’d love to talk more about your plans!
