These two really made the end of my season an absolute pleasure. Rich & Grace are both very humble and kind hearted. Their love for each other wasn't boastful but swept through the room like a gentle breeze. There were no big events or loud gestures, just a simple ceremony with a small group of friends and family to witness one of the best days of their lives. I had such a wonderful time capturing the natural charisma of these two and I couldn't hide the excitement on my face when I found out there was a make your own sundae bar. What can I say, I have a sweet tooth that I won't be ashamed of! Thank you again Grace & Rich for having me on your special day!
In addition to my own business, I shoot for a company called Lasting Impressions based in Clarence, NY. I started with them just shy of four years ago and have been growing ever since. I learned many techniques, the lay of the land per say and the overall ins and outs of photographing a wedding during my time working with them. Kathy & Tony are the owners of this business and in the short four years that I've worked for them, they have become people I admire and consider friends. Our time together will be cut short with my move this October but I can't thank them enough for the opportunities they gave me with my time here. Anthony is their son and Lexi, their new daughter. The joining of their two families was one to remember and one I won't soon forget. The love that circulated throughout the room was immense and overall, everyone had a wonderful time. So without further a due, Congratulations to the new Mr. & Mrs. Gagliardi!
One thing I love about Buffalo and our community is that we always strive to keep the arts alive. That's why I was so happy when the Nickel City Theatre Group approached me about photographing their annual Charity Gala at the Saturn Club. It was great to see so many people get together in the name of Theatre. There was a live band, raffles, auctions, wonderful food plus drinks and of course, some opera thrown in right at the end. The night was a huge success and I was glad to be a part of it.
