whitney and man’s wedding at st michael’s of rochester was a public exaltation of their love for each other, their reception at eagle vale golf course, a jubilant celebration with family and friends.
in the aftermath of that joyous day, in a quiet place, there lay a wife and a husband, in love, no longer to be alone in the darkness.
it was in that spirit we spent the following day with man and whitney in a place where in the aftermath of life, love remains.
we saw this place the day before, as we drove by it to do whitney and man’s bridal party portraits and were instantly intrigued. never before had any of us seen a cemetery so large. graveyards have always been a place of great sorrow to me, so it may sound odd that while walking amongst the nearly 400,000 dearly departed of mount hope i did not feel sadness, nor did i feel fear as the sun began to fade into darkness. i felt the overwhelming strength of love, and family.
as seen in the photo above, love is eternal, and death does not always “do us part.”
man and whitney, you guys are so hot that you burned my eyeball on this set. i had to shoot with my left eye the rest of the day.
a couple things to note about this next image. first, whitney looks absolutely amazing. second, the location where this was taken is down in a little sort of valley. there is a whole row of mausoleums there that face each other. if you look at the mausoleum behind whitney you’ll notice there is nothing on the steps. after taking this shot we walked about 20 yards further down the row and continued shooting for about 15-20 more minutes. we were within sight of this mausoleum the whole time and saw no other people anywhere near us. as it began to get dark we decided to head back to our cars. to get out of the little valley we had to walk back down the row of mausoleums and exit the same way we came in. as we did, we noticed a large candle, burning, on the top step of this mausoleum. i’m not saying this place is haunted, but our pace did pick up a little.
this one’s for man. it’s what happens when you go to mcdonalds and order a large pepperoni pizza.
just for fun i thought i would show everyone how kim, april, and i see things.
this next shot is by me…
next is kim’s shot…
and now we have april’s shot.
in the spirit of friendly family competition, who’s shot do you like the best? VOTE NOW!
these last 3 are my personal favorites of the day.
