Ravenwood Golf Course - Rochester, NY Wedding Photographer - Melissa & Peter

I don’t think I need to remind everyone how hot it was outside on July 6th so let me tell you how PERFECT it was instead. The forecast all week called for rain during our portrait time. I was prepared with 10 white umbrellas and one cute, clear bubble umbrella for the couple. It started to rain pretty heavily while they were getting ready in separate rooms but I remained positive as I knew we were going to get beautiful images regardless but I could tell Melissa was disappointed.

Wayne County Fairgrounds Wedding- Rochester, NY Wedding Photographer - Brittany & Adam

Brittany and Adam were married at the Wayne County Fairgrounds Floral Hall building where they held their ceremony and reception! This was my first time there and it was gorgeous, perfect for a rustic wedding. Everything was painted white from the bridal suite, to the reception hall itself (a photographers favorite color!) and made for great lighting!

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.

Why You Should Consider a First Look // Rochester, NY Wedding Photographer

I absolutely LOVE first looks and I’m ready to tell you why in this blog post! A lot of brides I talk to tend to write them off because they get caught up in how “un-traditional” it is. I can talk about it, because my entire life I always thought I’d be one of those brides! I wanted a REACTION…I wanted my future groom to be so surprised and overcome with joy when I walked down the aisle that he bawled at the first sight of me!
