Christmas Eve at Christ Church

I have recently been engaged by the Christ Church in downtown Rochester to provide photos for their website and other promotional and documentation purposes.  Irene and I went to their midnight mass on Christmas eve.  It was a wonderfully musical event. It is a great space, just loaded with history and also is the home of an organ that is a replica of a 1776 organ from Lithuania.  More photos can be found HERE.

John's Chimney

Ever wondered what the state of your chimney is? Getting water in your home and you are in search of the source? Considering working with a mason and you need good images to discuss what needs to be done?

Give me a call and I can take pictures for you from above. 

Little Henry

We spent time with a special little guy, Henry.  He and his parents, Sarah and Mike were just great. Henry tolerated over and hour of shooting, wardrobe changes and finally when we wanted to get a few shots of him asleep he obliged without a fuss. He was just a delight to work with.

Bat Mitzvah for AllyRose

The ceremony was at Temple Sinai in Penfield. The architecture of the building is quite unique, find information about the building here. The wall behind bima is all glass giving the sense of being outdoors. For a photographer it is a great place since there is tons of natural light given that the ceiling is all glass. Following the ceremony a reception was held at the Daisy Flower Mill. Great day and an honor to witness AllyRose passing this milestone in her life.

Matt and Elizabeth

Irene and I had a great time with Matt, Elizabeth and their daughter Maisy. She was a real trouper, we were out in the cold for about 90 minutes. Cute as a button! Highland park came through with the foliage.  Go HERE for the complete set.

Sammy's Birthday Hay Ride

20141017-_MG_7101It is kind of crazy that I have lived in Rochester since 1982 and have never been to Power's Farm Market.  Erin arranged to have Samantha's birthday party there this year.  It was a blast and everyone had a great time. Running around in the huge corn teepee, and the night time spooky hay ride.  Go HERE for the complete set.

Kevin's Chimneys

20141012-DJI00372A friend is concerned about the state of the pointing on his chimneys.  I grabbed some aerial shots for him to use to determine any work required and when talking with a contractor. For more click HERE.

Jan

20141010-_MG_6687Jan was looking for some shots for her website.  She asked me to capture her as she would look to someone she were working with.  We had a really fun session, she is so full of life and joy.  Further shots can be found HERE.

Gail Thomas

20141003-_MG_6518On the evening of October 3rd, 2014 Gail had an opening of her exhibit "Contemplation" in the Williams Gallery at First Unitarian Church of Rochester.  Gail is inspired by the beautiful natural forms and colors that abound in both natural landscapes and in the human form.  She explores them in her artwork using the mediums of paint and pastel.  Irene organized the opening and I captured some photos for Gail.  The complete set can be found HERE.

First Unitarian Gardens

20140910-DJI00304For an interesting and unique perspective I took shots of the Gardens behind the First Unitarian Church on Winton Road.  For the rest of the shots look HERE.

Larissa and Rob

20140902-_MG_4817One of my favorite places to shoot is Linear Park in Penfield.  Larissa and Rob wanted an outdoor location for their 'save the date' photos and they also like Linear Park.  We spent some time along Irondequoit Creek and then on the trail that runs along the creek.  They were are a great playful couple.  Their wedding is in May of 2015, should be fun, they have chosen the barn in Rush as the venue. The rest of the shoot can be found HERE.

Erin and Nick's Wedding

20140901-_MG_4404On a beautiful day Erin and Nick became husband and wife at the White House in Webster park.  The outdoor wedding could not have been nicer.  Samantha and Ethan stood up for Erin and Nick and their cousins Madison, Julia and Sasha were the flower girls.  Everyone looked great.  For more go HERE.

St Joseph's Park

20140806-DJI00128Experimenting with the DJI Phantom to capture great aerial shots of St Joseph's Park in downtown Rochester.  The combination of the perspective and time of day provided some great photos.  More can be found HERE.

Window Issues

20140803-DJI00097The DJI Phantom is wonderful for accessing difficult spots to determine if there is house damage that needs to be addressed.  This homeowner knew that he had some issues with an attic window.  This shot shows the extent of the issue.  A great tool when talking with a contractor about how to remedy the situation.

Death Takes a Holiday

20140317-_MG_0181The First Light Players at First Unitarian Church of Rochester put on Death Takes a Holiday.  These shots are from their dress rehearsal.  All of the shots are HERE.
