Friends Lake Inn - Rochester, NY Wedding Photographer - Greg & Crystal

Friends Lake Inn - Rochester, NY Wedding Photographer - Greg & Crystal

Ah, where do I even begin? I have known Greg and Crystal for probably over 12 years and that’s how long they’ve been together. High school SWEETHEARTS. I was so excited when they reached out about their elopement in the Adirondack mountains which fell right on their 12 year anniversary!

Can you believe it? I can’t believe I’m writing about my own wedding shower. I just want to start off this blog post with a little admiration of my bridal party because they planned this ENTIRE weekend for me. One of my bridesmaid’s family hosted my shower at their house and I’m so incredibly thankful for that.

Talk about models. I get excited every time I look at this session! I’m so grateful they hired me, because I can’t over how cute they are. Priscilla’s first email to me explained how important photographs are to her, and even though Moise doesn’t like being in front the camera, she knows how ROMANTIC he is and was excited to find a photographer who could capture that.

Greg & Crystal | Sunsets, Rooftops & Cities

I'll be honest, I have some pretty amazing/beautiful friends. Greg's family has been in my life since around 2005, and Crystal snuck in there just a few years later. I've always been jealous of just how perfect they are (I think you will too after looking at these images) but what I love most about them is how comfortable their relationship is. Greg and Crystal have been together almost ten years this coming June (A DECADE!) but you wouldn't even know it!

The two of them are in-stoppable! They have been each others support system through high school, higher educations, new job changes, and whatever else life throws at them! 

We started our photo shoot at the George Eastman House. Surprisingly this was my first time shooting there! I'm not really sure why I waited so long, because it is breath taking. After frolicking through the gardens, we ended our shoot in downtown Rochester, NY. A fellow photographer friend took my photographs at this location, and I couldn't help but try it on my own. Sunsets, rooftops, and cities are a perfect match if you ask me. 

PS: Crystal is an amazing make-up artist at Scott Miller in Pittsford, NY. You should definitely request her for your make-up needs!
