I loved being able to drive out to Rochester for Sam and Connor’s engagement session. It is so fun exploring new places and discovering the hidden gems of each city. Going to the George Eastman Museum as a photographer was an incredible experience. Being the world’s oldest photography and film museum, it’s a historical landmark in Rochester, New York, and provided the perfect backdrop. One of the things that made this session so special was the obvious connection between Sam and Connor. From the stunning architecture to the lush gardens and the heartwarming love between this couple, everything about this shoot was perfect.
This was one of the most unique and fun engagement sessions I’ve ever had the pleasure of photographing. Not only did Sam and Connor have fantastic chemistry and contagious enthusiasm for each other, but the backdrop of the George Eastman Museum added a layer of charm and sophistication to their photos.
They were dressed to impress for their engagement session and looked every bit of the perfect match that they were. Sam wore a stunning white dress, while Connor looked dapper in a classic suit. What struck me the most was that they were so natural in front of the camera. These two were complete sweethearts and made my job as a photographer so easy and joyous.
We explored the venue and found some hidden gems that provided unique and stunning backdrops for their photos. The ivy-covered walls were the perfect setting for some intimate and romantic shots. The immaculate gardens and the natural beauty all around provided a sense of calm and tranquility. As I watched Sam and Connor saunter through the picturesque garden, my heart warmed with joy. Throughout the session, the natural light, golden sunshine, and exquisite greenery of George Eastman Museum framed the perfect backdrop for Sam and Connor’s timeless love.
I was struck by how much fun Sam and Connor had with each other. They were constantly making each other laugh and just enjoying each other’s company. Whether it was Connor twirling Sam or Sam playfully tugging at Connor’s arm, these two were complete sweethearts. Not only did they look amazing together, but their personalities and love for each other truly shone through in every photo. Plus, I couldn’t get enough of them staring lovingly at each other and stealing kisses! Not to forget Connor jumping right in for the goofy poses!
My favorite moment during the session was when I asked Sam and Connor to do something goofy that they do at home. Sam instantly went for Connors’s belly button, and he said, “Nooooo!” His crying out in mock horror had Sam and me both bursting into laughter.
Sam and Connor are getting married in August up in the Thousand Islands. I can’t wait to photograph their wedding ceremony at Boldt Castle and their reception at Riveredge Resort. I have no doubt that their wedding will be just as beautiful and full of love as their engagement session.
Sam and Connor, thank you for having me photograph your engagement session. It was an absolute joy to capture the love and playfulness you two share. I’m honored to have been a part of such a special moment in your lives. Congratulations and cheers to you both!
