This Rochester engagement took place downtown and at the couple’s historic home. The home of Kodak, this New York city has never looked better.
As a destination film wedding photographer I spent several years in the area. The rich history of this place is told in the skyline and in historic buildings. That is there we find Amanda and Evan, who met at Oak Hill and started that a relationship they are building their lives upon.
When Evan knew he wanted to propose, it was right around the time the were buying their house. Not just any house, but the historic Whitney Allen home. He waited until he could propose outside the house and it will forever be the setting of the greatest moments in their lives. For a house with so much history, they are building upon it.
On a fall morning we met to capture engagement photos both at home and on the rooftop of a downtown building. The view of the river are amazing, you have to scroll down and see them. The mix of locations gives us a glimpse into life now, a city that is both past and present, and the generations building it.
I loved that we could stop for champagne in the kitchen, visit the garden and see all the spaces they were making their own. There is nothing like that new house feeling. Well, maybe the just married feeling?
The rooftop view of downtown Rochester doesn’t get any better. I love the soft light and overcast moment on film. While the whole session is shot on film, for wedding days we like to adopt a hybrid approach.
After a walk through the quiet city streets (it was Sunday, plus Rochester can really feel small sometimes, in a good way) we wrapped up. Next, their wedding at Oak Hill with Celebrated Events.
To start the process of working together, contact us and if we are available you will have a chance to talk with Mary and learn more about her approach.
