We had the most beautiful time with Jill & Chris on their wedding day! We started at The Hotel @ The Lafayette for the girl’s prep, before Chris & Jill’s First Look. As excited I was for them to see each other, I have to admit, I was really excited to see their son Chase’s reaction too! His face lit up with such joy as he ran towards his mama! Steve captured the perfect shot of this, and it was one of my favorite moments of the day. After the bridal party photos in some of our favorite nooks of the Theater District (because who doesn’t love a stop at Shea’s and the amazing Jessie & Katey mural?!), we headed back to the Lafayette for their ceremony & reception. Those chose such a stunning spot for their ceremony, right inside one of the Pearl @ Lafayette courtyards. The sunlight streaming through and endless string lights made for a beautiful backdrop to their laughter-filled vows. They were simply giddy, half of the crowd was tearing up, and Chase took a nap right in the middle of it all! Afterwards, we headed right upstairs, and they kicked off a huge party, and wild night of dancing. We had a blast, and loved being a part of their day!

Meet Molly & Bill! They are the sweetest, most fun-loving pair and I’ve really enjoyed getting to know them at past weddings I’ve shot (shout out to Mark & Kristen, Carly & Dave!) Once we had a chance to sit down, and have a consultation for their own BIG day, I knew that I had to be their photographer! Their epic sunrise-on-a-rooftop & beers-on-a-beach e-session really set the bar high for the wedding photographs, yet, they somehow managed to top it! They took us to Buffalo’s most gorgeous venues for their photos, including The WestinEllicott Square Building, The Admiral Room, Hotel Henry, and Statler City! Throw in a fabulous bridal party, a perfectly sunny day, and a stop at a Westside firehouse, where they popped champagne 100′ feet in the air, and Steve & I were very happy photographers. Scroll down to relive their beautiful ceremony (including the sweetest first look between Molly & her father), glamorous portraits, and wild reception (with jaw-dropping decor by Buffalo Floral Art)!

Thank you, Molly & Bill, for inviting us to be a part of your day! We LOVED being there to celebrate with you! XOXO

We were lucky enough to spend a sunny Saturday hanging with Eilish, AJ & their crew! We were back at The Hotel @ The Lafayette for their prep with Salon Elizabeth and celebrations in the Marquis ballrooms. (Sidebar… Many people ask me if I ever get tired of shooting there, since my office is on the first floor and I end up booking many of their weddings. The answer is NO! Every single couple is so very different, and I love seeing how they personalize the spaces and make them their own! Plus, the staff at all four banquet rooms are so wonderful to work with, and keep it fun for us, each & every time. Plus plus… the entire building is gorgeous & I love it so!)

After a fun morning of getting ready, Eilish & AJ had a stunning ceremony inside St. Joseph’s Cathedral. Buffalo is full gorgeous churches, and this one might take the cake. Afterwards, the timeline allowed for an abundance of bridal party photos (whoo hoo!) so, we headed to City Hall, Theater District, and Hoyt Lake, with a quick stop for lunch at Expo. We headed back to The Lafayette for a big, beautiful party full Disney-themed everything! AJ & Eilish even handmade all of the centerpieces themselves, including cutting down the bottles to create cute candles, and they loved getting to see it all finally come together.

Enjoy a peek into their day, including all of the fun bridal party photos, the Cindrella dress, the big laughs, the sweeping special dances, and let’s not forget the incredible sprinkle shoes! Thanks so much, AJ & E, for having us a part of your day! We LOVED being there with you!

Summer is just getting started, and so is our major portrait season! I loved kicking off my family sessions last week with this sweet crew. Meet Lindsey and Jason, and their little men, Hunter & Noah! Lindsey is also a portrait photographer, and it was so nice to treat her to an experience on the other side of the lens. They chose a low-key session, sipping smoothies at their favorite place on Elmwood, Ashker’s Juice Bar, and some playtime and snuggles in Bidwell Park. They were all so great to photograph (and the faces that came from that little baby… I couldn’t get enough!) I look forward to more shoots like this throughout the summer 🙂 Email today to book yours!

We kicked off our 2017 Summer season with these two, and man, did it set the bar high for the year! Sam & Adam were cracking each other up all day long, and their happiness spread all around. It was a carefree, fun-loving, easy day, and we really enjoyed being a part of it. We started with prep photos before heading to their beautiful ceremony at St Peter & Paul in Williamsville. Afterwards, we journeyed to City Hall for portraits. The weather called for rain all day, we were pleasantly surprised to see they very wrong. The cherry blossoms around Niagara Square were bursting with color, and the skies were blue, and warm sunshine was coming through; it was a dreamy backdrop for us. We wrapped up in front of The Hotel @ The Lafayette, before kicking off their wild reception inside. After some sweet first dances, Nik Lite took the stage and kept the party going all night long. It was a perfect start to another wonderful summer of Buffalo weddings!
