A Love Letter To My Home Town: Rochester, NY

As I sit here, editing a set of images from my last wedding, I can’t help but feel a surge of emotion as I reflect on our journey together. You’ve been more than just a city to me; you’ve been my muse, my sanctuary, my eternal source of inspiration. From the cobblestone streets of the East End to the tranquil shores of Lake Ontario, you’ve woven your magic into the very fabric of my being.

Growing up amidst your embrace, I learned to see the world through the lens of your beauty. The lilacs in Highland Park, with their delicate fragrance dancing on the breeze, will forever be etched in my memory. And oh, the rivers that flow gracefully through your heart, whispering secrets of generations past.

With every click of my shutter, I strive to capture the essence of your soul – the vibrant tapestry of cultures, the timeless beauty of your landscapes, the resilience of your people. Each photograph is a love letter to you, a testament to the bond we share and the memories we’ve created together.

But it’s not just your outward beauty that captivates me; it’s the spirit of community that thrives within your streets. From the bustling markets of the Public Market and Park Avenue to the quiet serenity of Durand-Eastman Park, you embrace all who call you home with open arms.

So here I am, pouring my heart out onto this page, grateful for the moments we’ve shared and eager for the adventures that lie ahead. With my camera in hand, I’ll continue to explore your every corner, seeking out the hidden gems and celebrating the beauty of everyday life.

Thank you, Rochester, for being my home, my muse, my eternal source of inspiration. Here’s to the memories we’ve made and the ones yet to come.

With love,

Valerie Marie
