Sandy & Patrick

I've been a photographer in Rochester for about two years, and this work gives me endless opportunities to discover the city's little treasures. The Rochester area is full of hidden nooks, beautiful gardens, dreamy parks, and beautiful architecture -- most of which I probably haven't seen.

The Maplewood Rose Garden is one of those charming little spots. I recently had the pleasure of running around the garden with Sandy and Patrick to capture their engagement photos. These cuties are getting married in November, and I already can't wait to work with them again. I had so much fun during this session (...I'm pretty sure I kicked my shoes off at one point).

My approach to photography is always natural and candid, but I do tweak my approach based on the couple or individual. So, when I started getting to know this fun-loving pair, I knew that we'd be moving and laughing through the whole evening. Their images were the perfect combination of loving and lighthearted -- truly my favorite blend.

Cheers to summer and running around outside! I have a few sessions coming up that I'm super excited about. Can't wait to share more of what I've been up to.
