Jessica + Cody

Jessica and Cody had a beautiful wedding at Pearl at the Webb. We used the exposed brick the venue offers and city surroundings for photos. Jessica got ready in the lofts right above the venue and they were just amazing. 

Jessica and Cody are dear friends of mine and it made this wedding so special to be part of. Getting to know this family better really warmed my heart. You could tell every single person there was excited to celebrate the big day!

I'm so grateful to have such amazing clients and friends.

Kristina + Daniel

Daniel and Kristina had a beautiful rustic wedding at the Toad Hill Tree Farm in Lockport. This Christmas tree farm was the perfect setting for a early summer wedding. The day was filled with cowboy boots, and perfectly executed DIYs! Dan and Kristina's first look was so amazing to capture and gave us so much time to work with for formals. You could immediately tell how much fun family and friends were having at this wedding. Between the dancing and the s'mores bar, there was something for everyone to enjoy. 

I really enjoyed getting to know Dan and Kristina from their engagements through the wedding day. I'm grateful my job allows me to meet so many incredible people, and visit so many unique venues.

Sara + Paul

The girls and I started the day at Giambra Hair Studio, getting ready for the day. The salon was busy and handled the entire wedding party with ease. After we were off to the venue to start the day! Sara and Paul had a beautiful wedding at the Four Points Sheraton in Niagara Falls. The reception followed inside with views of the water surrounding us. Sara and Paul were a pleasure to work with right from the start. After shooting their engagement photos a year ago I could quickly see what a strong relationship they had. It was a pleasure to get to know their family and friends.

Samantha + James

Samantha and James had a beautiful wedding at The Red House in Cassadaga, NY. The day was filled with fun, laughter, lawn games, and dancing.... a lot of dancing! They opted to do a first look early in the afternoon allowing us to photograph formals before guests arrived. First looks take planning and some coordination between the guys and girls. This one went so smoothly and was just amazing to watch. Family was peeking through the doorways to witness the moment, and their excitement was heartwarming. 

The Red House is an incredible venue. One of my favorites to date, and just the style SMW Photography lives for! The home was filled with antique furniture and the barn was lit up beautifully. Samantha and James had an energy that was truly beautiful. I'm so grateful to have started the season off with such amazing clients. 

Thanks so much for allowing me to capture your day!

Ashlee + Anthony

One of the things I love most about engagement photos is being able to really explore the areas we choose to shoot in. Ashlee and Anthony had no problem doing this, and I can say we definitely took quite a stroll. Aiming for a mix of nature and "BuffaLOVE", I believe we accomplished the goals of this session well! 

Location: Canalside Buffalo, NY

Buffalo Pride

What an incredible weekend its been. I tell people all the time, that I'm lucky because my job allows me to capture love in every aspect of the word. While photographing weddings I always see the connections between a couple and there family/friends. Pride gave me the opportunity to experience love on the largest scale I could have imagined. As soon as I stepped out of my car I was embraced with so much kindness and community, which warmed my heart on a whole new level. 

Thank you so much to the Pride Center of WNY for giving me the opportunity to capture such an incredible event. You can also view their Facebook for more photos and information! 

 

Nina + Kenny

Sometimes spring comes with quite a bit of rain. Nina and Kenny decided to celebrate spring inside the Erie County Botanical Gardens for their engagement session. What better surrounding then the beauty that surrounds you in this building. We were so lucky to have a break in the weather to get outside and explore the gardens. These Sabres fans were incredible to work with, and I can't wait to work with them again during their October wedding! 

Safra + Chyna

One of my favorite things, is being able to photograph people I see everyday. After working with these ladies, it was fun to go out and do a fun photoshoot. The gloomy rain helped make Forest Lawn Cemetery the perfect location to explore. Photographing friends is wonderful!

Stephanie + Bruce

Steph and Bruce had such a fun engagement session! It was also really nice to photograph a couple with so many mutual friends, and who attended my old high school. Although Winter didn't provide a ton of snow for engagements this year, we made the best out of the cool temperatures. I'd say this E session had lots of adventure. Hiking through the trails of Chestnut Ridge, finding some not so popular places to photograph these two in there element. I give two thumbs up to Steph, for not only be adventurous, but also doing so in heels!!!
