Amanda and Brian’s big day finally came in 2021 with a fall wedding reception at Tewksbury Lodge on the Buffalo River. Unfortunately they had to postpone a few times from their original date in 2020 but when the day for their big celebration finally came, it sure did feel exciting! They had a Lord of the Rings inspired wedding with beautiful details throughout. We did portraits outside at their church, downtown in the Cobblestone District, and at Resurgence Brewery. It was a fun filled day full of laughs and happiness!
Lauren and Robert had planned a small wedding right from the start so luckily had to make no major changes to their wedding day. They had a beautiful and intimate day at Hotel at The Lafayette in downtown Buffalo, NY. The Courtyard Room was the cozy setting for their reception and its courtyard was the perfect romantic setting for their ceremony. The bride got ready at the hotel which allowed us to take portraits on the balcony in the front of the hotel, a wonderful setting! For bride and groom portraits, we stayed near the hotel and walked across the street to Lafayette Square. The whole day was centered around family and it was classic and just right, and most importantly full of joy.
Spent part of my Mother’s Day this year capturing this proposal! So beautiful and amazing! When Andy reached out to contact me and told me his proposal plans I just couldn’t say no to photographing it. Lulani’s Tables set the scene with a stunning picnic set up on the edge of Hoyt Lake in Buffalo’s Delaware Park. There was a gorgeous table setting, pillows and blankets to get cozy with, lots of delicious food, champagne, and even a checkers game. I just had to get a good handful of details. Then Andy and Daisy arrived and Andy popped the question right away. There were so many smiles and kisses and so much laughter and joy after that. It was so clear how happy and in love they both were. We did some portraits and then I stayed for a few to capture as they dug in. Love this set, had to share a ton!
When I was contacted by Daulton of The Refined Host to photograph one of the small gatherings that would make up 2021’s Nichols Annual Auction, I knew it was going to be a stunning event! I am in love with balloon arches and was even more excited when I learned that Buffalo Balloon Co. would be putting one together for the party. The decor was a perfect mix of fun and school spirit colors with elegant and sophisticated touches. I have been finding photographing events and parties really enjoyable as I love party planning and decorations!
Julie and Nick decided to cancel their 2020 wedding plans and reception but they made the best of it with a stunning spot for their ceremony and portraits. We met at Niagara Falls City Hall on a Friday and they had an intimate civil ceremony. Despite the fact that the day wasn’t what everyone had in mind there were smiles and laughs all around. With the historic building as a backdrop, we were able to capture many beautiful bride and groom portraits.
