I had the opportunity to help Mike and Heather celebrate their first wedding anniversary by capturing some beautiful and loving images of them. I've had the pleasuring of knowing Mike and Heather for a while now and I've always been inspired by the obvious connection they share. It was no surprise that their gallery is full of infectious smiles and genuine laughter. I couldn't help smile back at them behind the lens during this session. As a photographer, I provided minimal direction because these two just wanted to be close and looked effortless together. 2018 brings a new adventure in a new city for them so I suggested we shoot at their home and around their neighborhood to capture memories of their time in Rochester. If you are familiar with Rochester then you know the Park Ave area offers endless possibilities for shooting locations. We just walked around the neighborhood with a few choice locations in mind and let the rest happen naturally. Our session was fun, laidback, organic and full of laughs. We got lucky with some seriously stunning evening light. Congratulations on your first year of marriage and thank you for sharing all your smiles and laughs with me.... and a few beers after shooting.
