Weddings & Events at Artisan Works Gallery – a unique Rochester wedding venue
As many of you know, one of my favorite places to photograph weddings in Rochester is at the very unique Rochester wedding venue: Artisan Works art gallery! It is the most unique wedding venue in Rochester and Western NY.
I have been a member for years and now I am a corporate member!. There is nothing quite as gratifying to an artist as supporting other artists and having a place in town to go get inspired. Over the years, I’ve probably photographed over a dozen weddings at Artisan Works art gallery for all sorts of couples. Straight wedding, gay weddings, large weddings and small weddings, Artisan Works has something for everyone. They also use the best caterer in Rochester, Madeline’s Catering!
When Victoria mentioned that the Artisan Works website was being redone, I stepped up to take some new images for their website. Secretly, I just wanted special access to photograph the place without the demands of photographing a wedding!
Photography inside Artisan Works is no small feat. It is probably one of the worst places for a wedding photographer to work, as the lighting patterns and colors change every 5 feet! There is also the added bonus and distraction of all of the artwork. Photographers really need to watch the background and be responsible for everything in the frame. Which can be hella fun!
My favorite part about weddings and events at this funky art gallery is the food with Madeline’s Catering! She is up for any challenge and even the old standbys are beautifully presented and reimagined.
