Rick & Veronica Get Hitched!

I did Rick & Veronica's engagement session last year at Chestnut Ridge and immediately could tell how close they were. They so graciously had me back for not only their first wedding; thats right, they had two! The amount of details and DIY put into this rustic yet elegant wedding at Knox Farms was truly fantastic. Throughout the day, neither of them could keep the smile from beaming off their faces; even if it was 90 degrees. But don't worry, they supplied us all with Freeze Pops to cool down. From the horse drive carriage rides to the surprise fireworks off in the distance, this was truly a night to remember. Thanks for having me be a part of it! Congrats to you two! 

Heather & Carl's Wedding at The Sonnenberg Gardens

I met Carl & Heather last year for their engagement session here in Buffalo. These two are quick witted and most definitely perfect for each other. During our shoot, Carl was cracking jokes to ease their way into having their photos done. I could expect no less on their wedding day. I had such a blast watching them interact and really appreciate one another. Not to mention, everyone really broke it down when some N*Sync came on (I, included). The entire day felt so surreal with the majestic setting of the gardens which to my surprise and glee, were jam packed of picture-esque locations that we couldn't possibly hit them all. But I think we did a pretty ok job. Congratulations Heather & Carl! I'm looking forward to seeing what the future holds for you two.  

Heidi & Brad's International Wedding

Last winter, I photographed Heidi & Brad's small ceremony down at the Pearl Lofts. It was intimate and small but full of love. This time around, it was a beautiful warm day; friends and family flew from all over the world to celebrate their special day. It was classic, timeless and an absolute pleasure to be a part of. Did I mention there was a doggie too? Big thanks to Wilbur for his cooperation and cuteness. And also a special appearance from the biggest rainbow I've ever seen. Congrats to the happily married couple Heidi & Brad! 

Jean & Will's Winter Wedding

Every couple I work with is different and wonderful. Some are detail oriented and precise while others are laid back. I love the diversity of people I work with and couldn't be happier with how Will & Jean's day played out. It was sweet, humble and filled to the brim with joy. Congratulations to these two sweethearts, may the years bring nothing but happiness.

Lake Tahoe, My Second Home

I have visited Lake Tahoe many times over the past few years and the reason why is simple. My best friend moved there back in 2012 and I've gone out every year since. Two years ago, I went out as normally planned but brought my other best friend out with me to experience the beauty of this place. She became transfixed as most do and moved out there almost immediately. Now this is great for my two friends but terrible for me since now my two best friends live on the other side of the country. Last week I decided to go out and see them. It's always a blast but disheartening when I have to leave knowing I won't see them for quite some time. Here's some photos I took while exploring the vast beauty of this winter wonderland. Oh, and there's dogs too.

Veronica & Rick's E-Session at Chestnut Ridge

You know when you just click with people? Thats how it was when I first met Rick & Veronica just four days ago. We had a quick consultation over coffee and I think we both knew we were a great fit to work together. These two wanted to get some wonderful fall foliage engagement photos in, so we dived right in the following Sunday. The weather was a bit windy but all in all, it ended up being a gorgeous day. Take a peek to see more from our day down below!

Kristie & Micheal Get Hitched at Glen Oakes

It was such a beautiful day for these two to exchange vows. The perfect temperature and just the right amount of sun. The room was decorated with photos of the two of them from over the years they have been together (which I learned was quite many!) Micheal being the goofy guy he is managed to make everyone laugh through out the entire day. Congratulations to these two! I wish you many more happy years together.

The Brant's Elope!

Jessie & Brian are one of the cutest couples I have met. Also quite possibly the funnest too. They had so many people there who love and support them, it was magical to witness. They broke it down on the dance floor and literally cleared out the bar at Saranac Brewery. Congrats to these two and I wish them many happy years together.

Ashley, Patrick, Hank & Bernie's Lifestyle Shoot

Working with Ashley's family and friends over the past month has been so great and honestly a ton of fun. First with FarmFest, then Nick & Lisa's wedding and now their own family session. They really liked the candid work I do and wanted to emulate that through this session so we chose to go the route of a lifestyle shoot. Basically we all just go to hang out and play with Little Hank and the cutest golden, Bernie. Also, I can't stand how stinkin' cute Hank is. But I'll let the photos speak for themselves. Here's the Lewis's!

Nick & Leah's Engagement Session

Our time together shooting was short and sweet but it was nothing less than filled with laughs and love. These two were perfect at making each other smile and were genuinely super happy together. I can't wait to photograph your wedding next year you two!
