Melissa and Brian's Wedding at Pearl St Grill & Brewery in Buffalo, NY

Melissa and Brian were married on a sunny, stunning summer day in Buffalo, NY. We started the day at the Lofts on Pearl, in a beautiful, open brick room overlooking Pearl Street. Melissa got ready with her mom, grandmother, and bridal party in sun filled room. Melissa’s wedding gown was the perfect princess dress, and was complimented by the stunning pink bridesmaids dresses in various tones and styles. Once dresses were donned, the ladies went outside to meet their limo bus. 

Melissa and Brian first saw each other at their beautiful church wedding at Watermark Wesleyan Church. Melissa’s dad walked her down the aisle, as Brian looked at her beaming. After exchanging their vows, Melissa and Brian took their first photos as husband and wife in the church. 

Next up- a photo tour of Buffalo! We explored Wilkinson’s Point and Gallagher Pier, where we encountered stunning clouds and beautiful water. The wedding party braved the heat to capture stunning shots in the Tift Nature Preserve. Afterwards to cool off the party hustled to The Draft Room for a few pints! Right before the reception, we hopped out for a few romantic portraits by a beautiful flower mural in downtown Buffalo.

The reception took place at the Pearl St Grill & Brewery, where Brian and Melissa had a whole floor (and 3 ballrooms) to themselves and their guests. The decorations were modern, thoughtful, timeless, and beautiful- we were amazed at the number of details and special touches they had planned throughout the space. The rest of the day was loving and beautiful with emotional speeches, father-daughter, and mother-son dances. The couple also displayed their fun sense of humor, with a “Monster Mash” and a Oczepiny! 

The day was stunning and we were honored to be a part of it. Congratulations on your wedding Melissa and Brian, and we hope you enjoy this preview!

Kylie's Senior Portrait at the Wadsworth Homestead in Geneseo NY

I cannot believe Kylie is already a senior! I have been imagining this photoshoot for a long time, but it really snuck up on me! 

Kylie is an amazing person- talented, smart, extremely kind, silly, with a quiet confidence. She loves deeply, and I cannot wait to see what she does in this world. 

We did Kylie’s senior portraits at the Wadsworth Homestead in Geneseo, NY, exploring the outdoors, including gardens and fields throughout the golden hour. At just the right moment, we went indoors to capture her en pointe, in the perfectly lit hallway- these are a must see!

Kylie- I am so excited for all of the adventures I know are ahead of you. I love you and I will always be cheering you on from Geneseo!! Congratulations on becoming a senior!!

Sarah and Graham's Wedding at Friendly Crossways in Harvard, MA

Sarah and Graham were married at Friendly Crossways in Harvard, MA on a warm summer day. While Sarah got ready in a quaint air conditioned room, Graham braved the heat on the beautiful second floor. You would never guess, but during a surprise rainstorm, we did the first look indoors, which I think ended up being very lucky as we were able to capture the unique atrium. Next, Graham and Sarah were married at the foot of the forrest and a great boulder. The sun peaked through as they said their vows surrounded by their beaming and tearful wedding party. After the ceremony, guests carried their elegant wooden chairs to the tent and enjoyed cocktails and lawn games. The reception was full of energy- with a larger than life DJ. As the sun set, and the turkeys grazed in the surrounding meadow, Sarah and Graham’s family and friends danced the night away. Congratulations Sarah and Graham! We hope you enjoy this sneak peak- we had so much fun capturing your wedding day!

Matt and Gareth's Wedding at the ViewPoint hotel in York, Maine

Matt and Gareth were married in the most wild-spectacular-wedding-weather we have ever seen, at the ViewPoint Hotel in York, Maine. The day started out with blue skies and fluffy clouds. Matt and Gareth got ready with their friends and family (who set a record for most helpful and efficient wedding party!) with tears sitting right behind their eyes. The sun came out valiantly as the ceremony began. Matt and Gareth spoke heartfelt vows (not a dry eye in the house) against the backdrop of the stunning ocean, rocks, and the famous Nubble Lighthouse in the distance. After the ceremony, we took formal photos against stunning landscaping and the ocean. Throughout cocktail hour, guests enjoyed the lawn games, hammocks, and drinks as the cloud rolled in. Enter epic skies. Gareth and Matt were gracious with their time- ducking out to capture portraits across the variety of skies throughout the evening. Rain poured down, followed by 6 (yes 6!) incredible rainbows. Sunset resembled patterns of Aurora Borealis - one of the most spectacular wedding sunsets we have seen. Matt and Gareth shared their first dances, followed by the most tear jerking speeches of love, hardship, and acceptance, that we have ever heard. As we tried to rapidly dry our eyes, guests enjoyed a delicious meal. As soon as the band began, the dance floor was full of energy, incredible moves, and a lot of laughs- some of our favorite dancing photos ever. Matt and Gareth’s wedding was one for the books- and a day we will never forget. We hope you enjoy this highlight reel, congratulations Matt and Gareth! -Lauren & Crista

Taylor and Tom's Engagement Session at the Wadsworth Homestead in Geneseo, New York!

I met Taylor and Tom right before the New Year, on a sunny wintery day at The Wadsworth Homestead in Geneseo, New York, for their engagement session. Taylor and Tom were ready to jump right in and brave the cold air, as we explored the West Lawn. After a few minutes, their big white blanket came to the rescue to warm them up a bit. After a swing ride, we went back to the house to warm up and take some photos inside. Tom and Taylor were as sweet as could be, getting cozy inside and staying warm together outside. Luckily, we found some snow in the shade garden area, before visiting the horses and barns in the front. Taylor and Tom were a joy to work with, and we cannot wait to capture their wedding at the Homestead! Congratulations on your engagement, Tom and Taylor, we hope you enjoy this sneak peak!

Kerry Ann and Jason's Wedding at the BeechWood Chapel and Hotel

Kerry Ann and Jason got married at the BeechWood Chapel and Hotel in Worcester, Massachusetts on a sunny winter day. The BeechWood Chapel is a wonderful venue for a classic, winter wedding, as they have a chapel right in the hotel, on the same level as the cocktail hour room and reception space. Kerry Ann and Jason’s family filed in to the stunning stained glass lit chapel. The ceremony began with beautiful song, sung by all. After exchanging vows, Kerry Ann and Jason were congratulated by their families. The cocktail hour was full of laughter and photoshoots, including a brave one with Kerry Ann and Jason outside! Finally, the reception was highlighted with moving speeches, fantastic dancing, and love all around. Congratulations Kerry Ann and Jason, enjoy this sneak peak!
