Honest imagery you can feel.

Hey hey, I'm honored you're here

My name is Garrett, but you can call me G.

I'm a traveling wedding and elopement photographer based in Rochester, New York serving easygoing couples who want truthful photography with an earthy, yet luxury feel. You know that fuzzy feeling you get when you're completely in your element or when you pause to relish in a special moment and freeze it in your brain forever? Well, that's what I'm here to document - not the manufactured stuff. I mean the slow moments at your favorite spot on the coast, tearful vow exchanges, your dearest people, and ultimately - you thriving in your happy place. Telling your story starts and ends with you, so let's furnish this chapter of your life with imagery that doesn't skip a beat.

The EXPERIENCE

I adapt my artistic style
to your unique connection.

"Wow. I am absolutely blown away by Garrett's work...

From start to finish, he made the process easy. With open communication and quick responses, Garrett was always available to answer any of my questions. The day-of, Garrett was a joy to work with. He was direct, efficient, but also allowed my husband and I some time and space to soak up the day. His final product speaks for itself. His immense photographic talent shines through the light, color, and attention to detail in his work. He perfectly captured how elated we felt on the day and now its documented forever <3 My family and I can't thank Him enough!!"

"I run a wedding venue and I've had a few couples use Garrett...

and I really loved how professional he was and his work was absolutely phenomenal! When I finally got engaged, Garrett was at the top of my list and I was so happy when he was available on our date! Unfortunately, our wedding planning took a turn for the worst when the pandemic hit, and Garrett was so patient and understanding when I changed things on him at least 2384784564 times. Fast forward to our wedding day and every guest was so impressed with him and how he was everywhere snapping candids and portraits. My husband and I definitely are not the most photogenic, but Garrett made us so comfortable and relaxed! The pictures turned out absolutely incredible! He sent us a couple of sneak peek pictures at 12am right after our wedding! Then we received the entire gallery within FIVE days!!!! I don't know how he did it, but he's clearly a magician! So if you're looking for the greatest photographer, who will make you laugh and capture everything you're looking for, all while being extremely professional and in your corner the whole time (even during a pandemic), Garrett is your guy!"

"Garrett did my wedding photos and I am thrilled with the outcome...

From the very beginning, he communicated well with us which really kept us at ease. On your wedding day, he makes you feel like a million bucks, keeps you laughing, and doesn’t miss any details.. from centerpieces to portraits, to family photos.. everything came out beautiful 😍 Highly highly recommended!"

"Garrett is absolutely amazing! I would recommend him to anyone and everyone...

My fiancé and I booked him for our wedding and engagement session. Our engagement session felt like a date in itself. We laughed, we danced, we kissed, and we loved...Our pictures came less than 2 weeks later and I was thoroughly impressed with the outcome. He gave us more pictures than promised, which meant so much to us. Throughout the session, he told us every pose to do, face to make, motion to perform, etc, until we became more comfortable and natural. He even brought the music along to set the mood. The pictures are breathtaking and I cannot stop looking at them. I have already received so many compliments on them! Book him!!! <3 You will not regret it. We cannot wait for the wedding now!"

EASY, EARTHY IMAGERY FOR EVERYONE DOWN TO EARTH.

"Garrett impressed us right from the start. We sat down and he showed us his precious work and he was just so friendly. We booked him not too long later! His communication from there was beyond fantastic. With all the changes during the pandemic, he worked with us so well on everything (postponing, locations, etc.). We got a second shooter through him and I highly recommend! He got all of our photos to us before our one month of our wedding and even provided super quick sneak peeks. I wanted a few pictures in time for Christmas and he made those happen! He provided a wonderfully crazy amount of pictures and we’re so grateful! He was so professional and fun the day of. Garrett was truly one of my dream vendors and now a great friend!"

"Garrett did my oldest daughter's senior pictures a few years back, so when it came time for my youngest daughter's to be taken, we knew we had to ask Garrett again. Of course, he came through with gorgeous photos that were EXACTLY what my daughter wanted. Kids these days want unique photos and have crazy standards and fortunately Garrett was able to deliver. I can't stress how easy Garrett is to work with; he puts you at ease, offers lots of suggestions, plays music you like the background, all of which produce beautiful photographs that we will treasure. Additionally, he asked us what kind of background we were looking for, did some research and then offered us several locations to consider. That coupled with perfect weather granted my daughter exactly the photos she wanted. Thank you, Garrett!"

"0/10 would not do again...but only because we only intend to get married once lol -- Our experience with Garrett as our photographer was absolutely wonderful! Words cannot sum up how much we would recommend him as a photographer (and a friend!!). His desire to bring the best of every individual to light inspires and we were astounded by how amazing the photos turned out. Watching him work you can clearly see how intentional he is with capturing the beauty in each moment. He is an excellent communicator and extremely thoughtful. Taking photos can be awkward but not with him!! He makes it so fun, capturing everything he promised to and more!"
