Wandtke Wedding

We did the wedding of Katie and Ben today in Canandaigua. The ceremony was held at St. Mary's with the reception at Steamboat Landing. I shot the wedding with Jess and my good friend Brody Wheeler, who is a photographer from Darien, NY. As with most of the weddings this season, we had a bit of rain to start the day, but by the time we got out of the ceremony, the skies were clear.

Johnson Wedding

Amanda and I photographed the wedding of Quinn and Natalie at the Inn on the Lake in Canandaigua. They're from Flagstaff, Arizona, so next January we are planning to do a Trash the Dress session with them in Sedona while I drive from Vegas to Phoenix in between two conferences. Their wedding was great in spite of the heat. The warm evening on the lake is what makes summers so spectacular in the Finger Lakes.

Fish Tales

Daryn and I went fishing on the north end of Canandaigua Lake today. We caught a bunch of rock bass and a few other assorted specimens. At around 3:00, I picked up my 12-year-old neighbor Zach at the pier. He wanted to go fishing on the boat so bad. I told him if he could get a ride to the pier, I would pick him up. He ended up convincing my other neighbor to take him down there after school. So I pick him up and what does the little stinker do? He catches the biggest one of the day! He caught a 17" 3 lb smallmouth bass. As long as we are telling fish stories, here is a photo from a few months ago when Daryn and I went up to Sandy Creek in Hamlin. Once again I was outfished and here is the photo to prove it with Daryn holding a beautiful brown trout.

Thanks Casey

Friday's shoot with Annelise and Dan was made much easier with the help of my little friend Casey. She was very helpful with her horse Cotton, who was a little free spirited at times. Casey is also the goalie on my daughter's hockey team. Thank you Casey, your help was very much appreciated.

Down On The Farm

Annelise and Dan, who were married at Belhurst a few weeks ago, put there wedding clothes back on for one more stomp in the hay. We went to my friend Marcia's house and did some photos with her horse Cotton. Everything went great until Cotton brought Annelise under a low hanging branch and in her attempt to duck low, she did a 4 point dismount into the dirt. No worse for the wear, she hopped back on the horse and finished a great session.

Another Soggy One

If it's good luck to rain on your wedding day, this season's brides and grooms are going to be the luckiest ever. The day started out with crystal clear skies for Jason and Sarah in Clifton Springs. There was not a cloud to be found. By the time the ceremony was over, the sky was dark and thunder was rumbling in the distance. We just finished the receiving line when the storm was on us with bolts of lightning striking so close the thunder was ear splitting. Luckily, Sarah and Jason had a room at a beautiful bed and breakfast on Main Street in Clifton Springs, called The Clifton Pearl. We went there with the bridal party to take some photos and then headed over the the Clifton Springs Country Club for the reception.
