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.
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.
I was so honored to be able to photograph Jenny & Mike's big day. And if there's anyone who can blow aesthetics out of the water, Jenny is your girl. She and Mike both run Auxiliary Magazine, which I have also had the special honor of being featured in over the years that Jenny and I have worked together and formed a friendship. Everything about this day was perfect, down from the delicate flowers strung throughout her hair, from the handmade screen prints for their tables, all the way to the magnificent cake. Even the music was distinctly theirs and unlike so many other weddings. I can't thank those two enough for letting me be in charge of such a large task and also for allowing me to witness seeing you two marry, who are truly, very in love. Congrats!
I have never seen more people dance in all the weddings I have shot. Nick & Lisa decided going against getting the traditional DJ and hired a live band to play for most of the night. I don't even know how to describe what genre they were, but they had the entire crowd on their feet! These two were such a fun bunch and we had the best time shooting their wedding. It was a little untraditional but thats what we loved about it! No seating charts, open dinner, art deco decor and the live band, I could keep going. At some points, I honestly felt like I could have been in The Great Gatsby (I think thats what they were going for, so job well done!) But enough gabbing, here's the pictures!
Britt contacted me this month because a friend of hers recommended me for a session. (Thanks Heather & Carl!) Now, we might have done this a little backwards. Britt & Seaver had a small ceremony this winter but opted out of having a photographer. They regretted this decision and came to me hoping we could recreate their magical day. Spoiler alert, we did! Britt was such a firecracker and I can tell Seaver keeps her grounded. They work so well together and I'm so happy to share these wonderful images with the rest of you.
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!
Brian & Jackie are one of the sweetest couples I have met in quite some time. From the moment they did their first look, I could tell how in love they were and especially how easily they could make each other laugh. These two did away with most of the traditional parts of a wedding and stuck to the basics to ensure that the most fun was had. The reception got wild and I had an absolute blast being a part of their day. Best of luck to you both!
