I had been putting the brakes on wedding photography ever since I started my business. I had a million silly reasons why, but Adriana gave me the push - and I've fallen head-over-heels in love. It would have been impossible not to!
Adriana and Mychal's love story has quickly become one of my favorites. Truly, I keep tearing up editing photos from their beautiful day. The vows they wrote to each other and Ellie, the love notes Mychal had chronicled for months before proposing, even the way he looks at 'his girls' - ALL of it is so absolutely precious.
We beat the rainy forecast with lots of time inside a lovely old farmhouse.
and had a beautiful (dry!) outdoor ceremony. It all happened in perfect timing- including a stunning rainbow shortly after the ceremony!
Your family and friends are fantastic (and seeing Adriana's dad's expression while he walks her down the aisle has made me cry more than once), and you put such thought into every detail :from the handmade bouquets, the 'cannoli cut', and the amazing food truck, to the yummiest homemade cookies I've ever tasted - the details of this day took my breath away.
Thank you for making me fall in love not only with wedding photography, but with you three as well!! <3 <3
Congratulations to my beautiful first bride and her handsome groom!! I am so thrilled for you two as you begin this next adventure!! So, so much love to you!!!
And, yes, I am now booking Rochester area brides looking for laid-back, luxury wedding photography! If you're in love and starting to plan your 'ever after' I'd love to chat!
This summer has nearly whizzed by and I didn't want it to end without sharing some special first birthday moments that I had the pleasure of capturing!
My time with Riaan and his family was such a joy! Friends and family had traveled from all over to help celebrate this adorable birthday boy! It was evident how very loved this little one is! <3
Before the party began, we were able to document all his wonderful family with a few portraits of each family member with the birthday boy- aunts, grandparents, great uncles - everyone had their time to cuddle!
Mom and dad had a few quiet minutes with Riaan (and their pup!) , and OF COURSE, our favorite new one year old had his own little portrait session!
It was such an honor (and truly so much fun!) to capture all the laughter, music, details, and cake smashes that made this day so special!
Happy, happy birthday to the cutest first birthday boy around!!
