You're engaged! Now what? Well, now begins the fun and admittedly overwhelming process of choosing your wedding professionals to handle the fine details of your day. So what about photography? It's not just about "good pictures". This is an investment into your memories. One of THE ONLY tangible connections you'll have to take you back to your wedding day. With that said, how will you choose? How will you know you've found the right person? Carefully selecting the photographer to tell your story is one of the single most important decisions you will make when planning your wedding. (Sure I may be biased but read on because there's good reason!) Whether you're planning a Buffalo wedding or traveling to tie the knot, there is a common thread in every wedding: family. If you cherish and value family and connections, then we need to talk. It is the single most important piece of the foundation my business is built on and over the years I've come to discover that my clients value these things equally as much as I do and even more. And that, is a recipe for a meaningful, impactful and successful relationship. So, what's next? Read on to find out more about our values and what we stand for. If you think we would make a great team on your wedding day, reach out and we can set up a time for you and your beloved to come to the studio for a casual meeting!
Find what you love to do, do it, and you'll never work a day in your life. I used to think this was just a dream for the average person. Not anymore. I have made it my reality. I am extremely passionate about photography and most importantly, about weddings. I feel blessed and truly thankful everyday that I am 150% in love with my career and that I get to do what I love. There is something magical that happens at a wedding. A sense of mystery as the day unfolds. I get to witness the true and raw emotion the day offers and capture those fleeting moments to be revisited and relived again and again. You have this wonderful, beautiful love story that is truly and uniquely YOURS. As a Photographer, I want to tell that story through my imagery, not just capture "pretty portraits." Your images should reflect who you are as individuals and more importantly, who you are together. I believe firmly that what you do in life should be an extension of who you are. Photography is just that for me and the passion I have for it shows in the stories my images tell.
I tell each and every couple I work with "it is not just the quality of the work that you are booking when you choose a wedding photographer, it is the person as well. Find the right balance of each and you've found your match!" It's much like marriage in a sense! Your wedding photographer is with you each and every step of the way throughout the big day, witnessing some of your most intimate and personal moments as the day unfolds. The last thing you want is to be stressed on your wedding day because you are uncomfortable. Booking a photographer with the right personality will allow you to have a carefree and easy going wedding day. As your Wedding Photographer, I work very organically, working with you to create beautiful, lasting, natural portraits you can be proud of. Plus, I'm pretty fun, relaxed and casual. Stress free!
Experience! You want your photographer to be experienced, not just doing this as a side job or a weekend warrior! This is your wedding afterall! It doesn't matter how long a person has been photographing if they've never done a single wedding in their entire career. Weddings require special attention when it comes to photography. An experienced photographer knows what it takes to get the shots that matter AND to capture them in beauty and style. I have been professionally photographing weddings for nearly 8 years now, photographing 20+ weddings each season in Buffalo, Rochester, and Western New York. Not only does experience play a part in the quality of your images, it is necessary to know the ins and outs of a wedding day so the important moments are captured and not missed and those little but big moments that take place that you may not notice are captured as well.
