We couldn’t be more thrilled to finally be getting Amanda and Josh’s engagement shoot up on the blog.  We actually just saw them this past weekend again at another client of our’s wedding.  We love it when sets of friends hire us, and we get to see everyone so often.  We started things off at The Pan American Grill located right next to the Hotel At The Lafayette, a wedding venue we know all too well.  We couldn’t believe how quickly the camera began to love Amanda and Josh.  They were naturals from the moment we started.  Things got so steamy and intimate, we almost felt like we shouldn’t be there! But it was AWESOME!!  Afterwards we hit up Gallagher Beach Pier, and the magic just kept rolling. We finished things off at one of our favorite Buffalo NY spots, Delaware Park.  This place is becoming our home away from home, and we love it!!  Can’t say enough amazing things about this couple, can’t wait for next summer.

Buffalo NY Engagement Shoot

Needless to say, we absolutely love shooting at the Hotel At The Lafayette in Buffalo NY.  Our sister city over there by Lake Erie has really treated us well over the last year.  And the incredibly rewarding and heart warming experience of photographing Amanda and Brian’s wedding just made us love that city even more.  How could you not love this couple.  Check out Brian’s reaction to Amanda coming down the isle. Priceless.

Hotel at the Lafayette Wedding

Michaela and Victor have been a pair of our favorites from the moment we met them.  Their wedding day at the Colgate Divinity School was nothing short of perfect elegance and beauty. You really just can’t go wrong at such a gorgeous venue.  But they really personalized the day by doing things like asking all their friends and family to join them in singing Kips Wedding Song To Lawfawnduh from Napoleon Dynamite, at the end of their ceremony, right there in the church.  It was totally and utterly incredible.

Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School Wedding

Natalie and Andy had the most perfectly intimate wedding at The John Joseph Inn, located in the heart of the Finger Lakes Region, just east of Cayuga Lake and North of Ithaca, NY.  This was Michael’s and my first time shooting at JJI, and we hope it will not be the last.  The venue has a very special way of making you feel like you’re at a backyard wedding, the backyard of a beautiful home converted into an inn with a to die for wrap around porch that is.   And of course the barns and other homes, apple orchards, and lush landscaping on the property make the whole thing pretty much perfect.  We thought the scene suited Natalie and Andy’s laid back approach perfectly.  These two were nothing short of incredibly FUN and HILARIOUS.  It was like having laughs with old friends all day long.  Aside from Natalie’s show stopping totally unique wedding dress, and Andy’s perfectly tailored suit with matching perfectly manicured beard, we couldn’t help but let our jaws drop after seeing the finished product of Natalie’s hair and make-up job.  She did it herself people!!! We know, it’s amazing.  As always, we couldn’t be happier for these guys, and wish them all the very very very best in the future.

Rochester NY Wedding Photographers

In July Michael and I had the PLEASURE of photographing Emily and Scott’s wedding at the Genesee Valley Club in downtown Rochester NY.  The way that these two managed to make a very glamorous sophisticated and elegant event feel so down to earth and intimate was really remarkable.  It had the feel of a classic old world formal wedding, but with so much heart and soul. Of course it was all made possible by the incredible talents of the fabulous ladies over at Simply Beautiful Events. They always give it 150%, and are such a joy to work with.
