Cornell Wedding

Cornell University is not only one of the most highly respected universities in the United States, but also one of its most beautiful. At the heart of campus is Sage Chapel, a beautiful small chapel that fits in well with the historic architecture across campus. Though it offers a steep challenge to photographers being one of the most dimly lit buildings one could imagine, it is a favorite among Cornell alumni.

I had the joy of photographing Cassie and Jacob during their beautiful wedding ceremony on Cornell's campus. They made the very wise decision to have their reception at the Ithaca Farmer's Market, another beautiful venue that overlooks Cayuga Lake and even offers a dock that guests can enjoy the sunset from. It too offers a similar challenge to Sage Chapel however and that it is extremely dark once the sun sets. I was able to setup my Profoto B1 lights around the dance floor and create a sweeping soft light that maintained vibrancy and contrast while making everyone on the dance floor look amazing.

Classic Rochester, NY Wedding

Had the pleasure of helping with another amazing couple's special day, this time in Rochester, New York. This time we had some classic wedding moments, like the big Catholic church ceremony, an incredible Father of the Bride speech and even a quick bride and groom portrait session under the marquee lights of the Eastman Theatre. 

A beautiful couple in a timeless wedding so I attempted to keep things simple and clean and use available light as much as possible throughout the day, even at times when it could be seen as a little harsh. Would love to hear your thoughts and always couples looking for a wedding photographer in New York, do not hesitate to email me with inquiries.
