A Timeless Rochester, NY Wedding Editorial with Charming Details Set in a Historical Estate.

August 31, 2022


The vision for this shoot gathered some of the most talented vendors from the Rochester, NY, wedding market to create an elegant scene of romance amongst the polished property of the Colgate Divinity Estate & Chapel. We were striving for a classic aesthetic infused with a striking color pallet and just a touch of modern. An ethereal gown by Lovely Bride, a simple, flawless bridal beauty look by Dominique Fess & Angelina Palermo, and delightful florals by Tarry Grove are just a sampling of the talent included in this gallery. Calling back on the imagery evoked through classic love stories, this shoot is one of timeless romance and thoughtful details.

Of all the talented vendors from the Rochester, NY, wedding market that came together to bring this beautiful wedding editorial together, the cake from Sweet Dreams 716 stood out to me. The simple, elegant monochrome color scheme, paired with visually stunning texture, made this cake a statement piece for the editorial.

It’s amazing what a talented group of wedding vendors can create. It was a privilege to work with some of the best wedding vendors in Rochester, NY, for this wedding editorial. You find inspiration from other Rochester, NY, Weddings by clicking here.

At home near the Lake. Ever-focused on the beauty of life's simple moments. 

I’ve spent years refining an approach that allows me to sincerely honor the moment — knowing when to step in and adjust a subject or environment, and sensing when to stand back and allow a moment to just be.

With me, your photographs will be an intentional representation of this time of your life — imagery that will make you feel like it was just yesterday, and yet, feel forever untouched by time.
