Natalie and Andy had the most perfectly intimate wedding at The John Joseph Inn, located in the heart of the Finger Lakes Region, just east of Cayuga Lake and North of Ithaca, NY.  This was Michael’s and my first time shooting at JJI, and we hope it will not be the last.  The venue has a very special way of making you feel like you’re at a backyard wedding, the backyard of a beautiful home converted into an inn with a to die for wrap around porch that is.   And of course the barns and other homes, apple orchards, and lush landscaping on the property make the whole thing pretty much perfect.  We thought the scene suited Natalie and Andy’s laid back approach perfectly.  These two were nothing short of incredibly FUN and HILARIOUS.  It was like having laughs with old friends all day long.  Aside from Natalie’s show stopping totally unique wedding dress, and Andy’s perfectly tailored suit with matching perfectly manicured beard, we couldn’t help but let our jaws drop after seeing the finished product of Natalie’s hair and make-up job.  She did it herself people!!! We know, it’s amazing.  As always, we couldn’t be happier for these guys, and wish them all the very very very best in the future.

Rochester NY Wedding Photographers

In July Michael and I had the PLEASURE of photographing Emily and Scott’s wedding at the Genesee Valley Club in downtown Rochester NY.  The way that these two managed to make a very glamorous sophisticated and elegant event feel so down to earth and intimate was really remarkable.  It had the feel of a classic old world formal wedding, but with so much heart and soul. Of course it was all made possible by the incredible talents of the fabulous ladies over at Simply Beautiful Events. They always give it 150%, and are such a joy to work with.

Rochester NY Wedding Photoraphers – Genesee Valley Club Wedding

Needless to say we were VERY excited when Jennifer and Adam booked us to shoot their wedding at the Hotel Lafayette in Buffalo, NY.  It is one of the most unique and beautiful downtown indoor wedding venues in Buffalo, if not all of western New York State.  If you’re looking for old world vintage charm in the form of a hotel refurbished to its formal glory, this is the place.  But that’s just the half of it when it comes to this wedding.  Jennifer and Adam were a true dream to photograph.  Not only because they were as fun as they were gorgeous, but because Jennifer made it very clear that they were true fans of our work, and that she and Adam were so beyond thrilled to have us on board.  That kind of enthusiasm is contagious, especially on a wedding day.  These two were nothing but kind and generous and as sweet as could be the entire day.  And when you couple that kind of demeanor with a gorgeous venue, a truly beautiful July day, and an incredibly handsome couple, it just doesn’t get any better.  Oh and we of course can’t forget to mention the oh so perfectly picturesque Butler Mansion, where we did the majority of our formal picture taking(aside from the hotel of course).  It was such a perfect spot.  We wish Jennifer and Adam all the happiness and joy that life is bound to bring their way.

Just when we thought we were done with wedding party pictures, the groom and his g-men insisted we make a pit stop before the ceremony and that’s when this happened . . .

Rochester NY Wedding Photographers

The Metropolitan Building in Queens, NY is hands down one of our favorite venues ever.  Every time we go back, we fall in love with it just a little bit more.  And this time with Danielle and Matt was no exception.  The vintage factory, turned furniture rental facility, turned dream photo shoot location, turned wedding venue keeps you discovering new wonders with each visit.

Danielle and Matt put on a warm, cozy, intimate, heart felt, and of course very beautifully styled and designed event.  It was so much fun to photograph them.  We wish them all the best.

Special thanks to Kate of Green Apple Weddings and Events for helping to make the day so easy and such a pleasure.

We’ve had a little trouble keeping up with the blogging as of late, since this season is crazy insane busy for us.  But we’re not complaining.  All our couples this year have been so fabulous, and Meghan and Mitch are no exception.  Their Radiance Spa at Sweet Briar Geneseo wedding was nothing short of elegant, heart felt, and fun.  Meghan’s taste for all things old and beautiful fit in with the vibe of this venue perfectly.  I mean check out their centerpieces people.  Talk about putting your heart into the decor of your wedding.  It was of course also a wonderful bringing together of two fabulous families.  We wish them all the best in the life they have started together.
