Fall Engagement Photos at the University of Rochester with Megan & Mike

Love

Wow, I laugh so much when I’m taking portraits of my clients. I don’t know how some Photogs get such romantic images, since my clients always want to play. And laugh at me. Maybe I’m the instigator? Who knows. All I know is that I have a blast running around the City of Rochester with my couples and they always say “that was more fun than I expected!”…

Megan, Mike and Emma met me near sunset at the University of Rochester, since it has special meaning for them. I always want my locations to have meaning. Especially since Megan & Mike are moving to Michigan right after their wedding… So, we hit up the UofR and then crossed the Ford St. bridge and ended up at Corn Hill Landing, right near their house.

The sunset over the Ford St. Bridge wasn’t as strong as I hoped it would be. Sometimes the light just fills up the Rochester skyline with a bright warm glow. I think it was too late in the season for the stark sunset I was wanting. However, using the warm lights that illuminate the Genesee River Trail down at Corn Hill Landing, I was able to recreate the sunset feel and show a few trees that have changed their color. Shockingly, I was able to grab a few images of Mike and Megan being romantic too…

While we were photographing, I met a super nice couple who was taking a stroll along the river. They were nice enough to sit on this bench and let me test my settings on them. Turns out they are fellow Irishmen. Such a nice couple, and have been together for 31 years!

We had so much fun together that we headed over to the Tap and Mallet for a post engagement session beer. When I walked in, I ran into Melissa & Dave (July wedding)! Super cool running into them! There were some other friends there too and I hung out with them after my drinks with Megan & Mike. When I go to the Tap & Mallet, I feel like Norm from Cheers. Is that a good thing or a bad thing??
