Sydney's Class of 2015 Senior Photography Session

As the end of summer rolled around, and wedding season was winding down, we had the joy of meeting up with Sydney for her senior photography session. Although Class of 2015 commencement ceremonies had come and gone, Sydney was no less excited about her senior portrait session--and neither were we!

We started the first part of Sydney's shoot at one of our favorite places, Tifft Nature Preserve. The late afternoon sunshine created beautiful pools of light in the trees, along the paths, and among the tall wheat-like grasses. Perfect for such a lovely young lady!

For the second part of our shoot, we were in search of an urban flavor to offset the nature scene. So we made our way in and around downtown Buffalo, finding some of Buffalo's various graffiti and art walls to set the scenery. Sydney's personality was just bursting with effervescence against the vibrant colors of this urban landscape.

Of course, our shoot just wouldn't be complete without a Buffalo landmark to wrap it up. So over to Main Street we went, where Shea's Performing Arts Center was all lit up for "Curtain Up" week. Now isn't that a fitting analogy for senior year? The curtains close on Act One, the scene changes, the next act begins...and you just can't wait to see what's next! Congrats to you Sydney, as you step to the next scene in your life! :)

Presenting Autumn's Class of 2016 Senior Portrait Session

Senior Year is a big deal. So why not kick it off with a little end-of-summer fun? That's what Autumn did for her Class of 2016 Senior Portrait Session. From the urban brick and mortar alleys of Downtown Buffalo's Historical Cobblestone District to the tall grasses of late summer at Tifft Nature Preserve, Autumn rocked every shot of her session! Her clean & simple styling was perfect--but wait til you see those eyes! :)

After a quick outfit change and a short drive down Route 5, we were ready for the second part of Autumn's shoot. We loved every minute of it!

Autumn - thanks for choosing us to photograph your Class of 2016 Senior Portrait Session! We wish you the best in your senior year and in your bright future ahead!

A Summer Day on the Green: Tony and Theresa's Diamond Hawk Golf Course Wedding

On a warm Saturday in June, Tony and Theresa gathered their families and friends to celebrate their marriage together, and what a beautiful day they had! These newlyweds were so easy going and pleasant that they made photographing their day a piece of cake!

We met the two of them early that afternoon for their ceremony in Hamburg. Theresa was all smiles on the limo bus with her girls while Tony was inside with his groomsmen, fastening boutineers in final preparation before the ceremony would begin.

After the ceremony, we all headed over to Diamond Hawk Golf Course in Depew. Before the reception began, we ventured out on the green by way of golf carts for some fun shots with the bridal party. What a ride!

We were happy to have Kelsey Watroba of Kelsey Gene Photography as our assistant for this wedding, and we are pleased to feature some of her photos here on the blog. Thanks for coming along for the ride, Kelsey:)

The tall grasses in these summer fields were just perfect for photographing these newlyweds. These images are simply, beautiful!

The time had come for the bride and groom to make their reception entrance! As it worked out, were able to steal them away for a couple of golden hour shots just before sunset.

Once the bride and groom officially opened the dance floor, the party did not stop! We love seeing everyone have such a good time!

From Garden to Ballroom: Julian & Priscilla's Ballroom 384 Wedding Day

On a brilliantly sunny day in May, after much anticipation and planning, Julian and Priscilla gathered their friends and family together to celebrate the start of their new chapter in life together. What a pleasure it was for us to be there to photograph their wedding day and all its beauty in beautiful downtown Rochester.

We met Julian and his groomsmen at the Strathallan Hotel, looking sharp and proper. With his brother at his side and close friends at the ready, he was prepared for anything and everything the day would bring!

Over at East Avenue Inn and Suites, Priscilla had her company of women surrounding her, keeping her calm, cool, and smiling. What a beautiful bride!

Julian and Priscilla decided they would have their first looks at each other at the picturesque Warner Castle and Sunken Garden of Highland Park. These two were all smiles upon seeing each other's face for the first time that day. Nothing's more beautiful than that!

What a joy to capture their expressions as they viewed their guest signature book together for the first time, reliving the images from their engagement session

This distinguished bridal party really brought the gardens to life with their vibrant colors. The ladies, stunning in lavender, stood out like gems. And the gentlemen, well...just dapper!

Finally we were off to City Grill's Ballroom 384 where all the guest were gathered for the ceremony. The venue lighting and decor were perfect accents for the occasion. 

While the Ballroom underwent transformation for dinner, the guests were off to enjoy the cocktail hour in the Grillroom and on the patio.

A little later in the evening, it was time to head back over to the Grillroom for first dances. The bride and groom kicked off the party with not one, not two, but three dances - a slow dance, a salsa, and an old school jam. From that moment on, the dance floor was packed and everyone was dancing the night away! 

Julian and Priscilla - thanks for having us capture your wedding day memories! it was our pleasure to again work with your family and ensure you have memories to treasure for years to come. We wish you both every happiness as you continue life's journey as husband and wife!
