rounding out our whitney and man trilogy are these images taken on the day after their wedding, just before we headed over to do their aftermath session in the cemetery. we love doing aftermath sessions, especially when we have awesome couples like whitney and man. for any bride out there that wants to get images like these but gets worried when they hear the term “trash the dress” we want you to know that the intent of these sessions is not to destroy your dress. although it may get a little dirty, the level of trashing is completely up to you. our aftermath sessions are all about having fun, taking your time (which you don’t really get to do on your wedding day), and creating great images with you.
we started this photo session at warner castle in rochester new york. the grounds around it gave us an amazing backdrop for man and whitney’s awesomeness.
as we were shooting at warner castle, a gentleman came up the driveway in this sweet 1951 studebaker champion deluxe. he stopped and chatted with us a bit about our session and we all geeked out asking him about his car. (sidebar: i used to own a 1966 fairlane and a 1968 vw bug. i have loved old cars since i was a kid. it all started with the 1956 ford f100 my uncle owns. once i saw that, i was hooked. ok, back to the post.) james, the owner, was kind enough to hang out and tell us all about his car while we gawked. then, to our giddy delight, he offered to let us use his studebaker as a prop. he must have seen the drool running down my shirt.
whitney looked like a hollywood actress arriving in front of the red carpet. simply stunning.
man puts the stud in studebaker
i LOVE this next shot that april took.
if this isn’t the best looking couple you’ve ever seen i will eat okra, and i hate okra.
one last note before we say aloha oi to james’ 1951 studebaker champion deluxe. this car was immaculate, down the the finest detail. the ike and dick campaign button on the glove box was the cherry on top.
before going any further, we want to send a big thank you to james for not only letting us borrow his beautiful car, but for taking time out of his day to talk with us. he was more than generous with his time and as an added bonus, he shared all kinds of cool bits of rochester history with us. mahalo james!
one added bit of nostalgia for kim and i is that we met in hawaii at a club called studebakers. ever since then, whenever we see a studebaker, we have a little schmoopy moment. i love that girl.
we thanked the fine gentleman for letting us use his beautiful car and headed off to continue whitney and man’s aftermath session in the cemetery. as the last light of the day faded behind the tree line in the cemetery we started to pack up our gear. just then, whitney and man invited us to dinner with them at one of their favorite restaurants, hose 22 firehouse grill in rochester. they explained that it used to be an actual fire station but has now been converted into a restaurant. it sounded awesome on all accounts. one, we love old fire houses. two, we didn’t want our time with man and whitney to end. three, we were driving from rochester to boston right after we finished this session and there was no way we were making it without eating. it was a win, win, win.
we walked in just in time, about 20 before the place closed. man and whitney instantly drew attention from other patrons and from the staff. during dinner (which was awesome btw) the owner, craig, came over and congratulated them on their marriage and then offered to let them upstairs into the old fire house living area. there’s no way we were passing that up. once most of the other customers cleared out we headed upstairs where man and whitney got to throw on some old firefighter’s turnout gear.
now i know what you’re thinking. man and whitney were so hot that they caught the bricks on fire. for insurance purposes, i can not confirm that, but what you’re seeing in the background on this next shot is not just kim’s editing. those are actual burn marks on the wall. they may be from man and whitney’s hotness, or possibly from when there was a fire in the old firehouse (insert irony here). either way, they look rad in the photos and i’m glad the owner didn’t have the wall fully cleaned after the fire.
speaking of the owner, he and his family were super cool. they gave us all the vip treatment and even offered to move stuff around for us to get a clean shot. if photographer ratings for restaurants count, we give hose 22 and it’s staff an A plus.
did man and whitney rock this shot or what?
as an added vip bonus, the owner let man and whitney slide down the firehouse pole.
whitney and man, we love you guys! thank you so so much for everything. like i said in my previous post, our trip to new york for your wedding was one that we’ll never forget. we are forever grateful to both of you. i meant it when i said that we didn’t want our time with you to end. we loved every minute with you two. from the moment we met, you both treated us like we were part of your family. i want you to know that we will smile and think of our time with you whenever we look at these images, and the one’s we took along the trip there and back.
congratulations whitney and man! try not to burn any structures down with your hot hot heat.
this last shot btw, sweetest picture ever.

Oh my these are stunning! I’m in love with your work and this couple!
I have to say my favorites are the fireman one’s! SO fun and they are so cute in that gear! How awesome for the owner to allow you guys to get some shots!
Wow, oh wow! What a serendipitous session from beginning to end, y’all! Beautiful couple, great stories, awesome images! Love the last one and April’s Studebaker shot. Fabulous!
! Love the shots of the bride in the car. Love the close crop nuzzle. Beautiful.
Those in the fire station are pure FIRE.
Amazing! Love all of them!!
Awesome images, guys! I love the fact that you got to shoot in Raa-chaa-chaa! Ok, that’s Rochester for the folks who aren’t from there. Awesome city with a lot of character and you guys nailed it. B-E-A-utiful!
I don’t know how to express myself!
I really really LOVE THESE!
it’s a master piece! :D
amazing job as always!
You guys are the best. Some of the best photography I have ever seen. Very creative!
Wow this session is FAB-U-LOUS! Yay for couples who trash the dress or not [= With photos like these who wouldn’t? I seriously can’t choose a favorite, but I love all the castle ones and the last one!
Oh lordy these two are gorgeousI I LOVE #3 and 3rd from the bottom.
I love the picture of them in the back of the Studebaker! What a sweet gentleman to offer his car to you, and such a beautiful one too! Yay! There still are good people in the world.
choosing a favorite was difficult, my favorite is the b&w fire house one! they look so hot! hee hee, get it hot ;)
I have to say I seriously think these are the best wedding pictures ive ever seen!!! Them in the back seat, my fav!!!
Ok, so I had been waiting to see the cemetery sesh since the very first sneak peek, and it was everything I hoped it would be. Only you guys can make a cemetery look like the hottest, trendiest setting for wedding photos. But, then I see this set with the studebaker, and they just blew my hair back!! AMAZING shot, after AMAZING shot, after AMAZING shot…LOVE THEM ALL :)
I love the pictures in the fire gear..too cool!
I really love em’ all, but if I have to choose It’s a toss up between the starry sky one on the cemetery post or the last one on this post. All gorgeous! Good luck to the couple!
My fav from the wedding post is the b&w kissy face one. The big cross at night and the last cemetery one and the 3rd one on this one :) Good luck!
Big enlargement worthy? All, but if I have to pic one, I love the 7th one in front of the castle! Good luck!
Every single picture looks straight out of a magazine. My goodness these two are the hotness! My favorite would be any of the big cross ones, but my favorite is the…yes i just stopped to scroll back through, this is tough. The one’s of them in front of the car #11 any of the 3. Sorry that’s the best I could do :)
The hottest yet sweetest couple. As part of management at Hose 22, we were so proud to have these two there, and the photo’s are so spectacular, absolutely beautiful! Last shot? Your right guys, sweetest photo ever. Congrats!
These remind me of old hollywood, the couple is so beautiful and glamorous. I loved every picture from their wedding, to the cemetery to these! 4th from the bottom :)
i picked several favorites in scrolling down, but hit the end and that was the one! such an awesome set of shots for this beautiful couple!!
Firstly I love this brides dress! Secondly I LOVE the picture of them kissing inside the firehouse, definitely my favorite. This session is so fun it makes me wish I did an aftermath shoot!!!
OMG even more amazing pics of the beautiful and uberphotogenic couple!!!! I’ve gone with the concensus both times for my favorite pics, but let me tell you…so so so so hard to choose! Congrats to the fantastic couple!!! You have been blessed to find one another and truly lucky (& thankful I’m sure :)) to have had the best photographers ever!!!! :)
Amazing as always. And that last shot… damn…. that last shot. MONEY!
What fantastic, beautiful and fun pictures. I vote for the one of of them kissing out in front of the Studebaker. The long shot with the green trees in the back. The car adds some flair and just love the background as well. Would look fabulous blown up and hanging in their living room. They look so in love. Congrats to them!!
wow!!! pure awesomeness once again!
The opening and last picture in this group is AWESOME!!!! Love the fire fighters boots/helmets witht he kiss!!!! So good! Definitely my favorite…although it was still REALLY hard to choose because they’re all fab!
Seriously so amazing you guys! So loving ALL of these. But I LOVE the ones of her getting out of the car, perfect!
My fav is the last one. =)
Amazing. Love the car shots and them wearing the helmets!
I adore their wedding, the cemetery pictures are art, and this last one is stunning. I chose #11 the big one and the b&w kissy one from their wedding. How lucky to have so many beautiful works of art from their wedding.
The ones in front of that big cross are incredible, she looks like america’s next top model in those! They’re a gorgeous couple, and so cute together! A favorite? You’re kidding right. I can’t pic just one, but if I must it would be…the black & white cross one. That one blows me away.
SO GLAMOROUS! Very Hollywoodesque! The shots with the Studebaker are so Hollywood! Love! I love #11 the bottom left :)
I have to choose?!! No fair! Hmm…9,10,11 & 12 here, any of the ones on the cemetery and I mean any! The wedding ones are a tough choice too, I really love the dramatic shadowy ones and the castle one with the blue sky. There happy ;)
Black & White firehouse shot! So stunning!
YOWZA! Beautiful everything! the car, the cemetary, the hollywoodness, the firehouse…oh and yes that last one i love! =)
How do i say it? These are amazing. I love the use of props and you have an amazing skill of capturing those vibrant colors. great job!
Every single one of their photos are INCREDIBLE! I’d hire you for 3 sessions too!!! Wow. No words.
