ENGAGEMENT SESSION AT THE JAPANESE GARDENS

One last image (for now) from Nadeen and Gino's engagement session. This was also done at the Japanese Gardens. Just a bit off the beaten path.

We love Japanese Maple Trees. So, it was so great to see these giant Maple Trees in bloom. Look at the color! Nadeen and Gino look perfect in front of them. This image was just fun and no direction at all. It was the two of them in their own moment! With such a pretty back drop. I even love the lamp post off to the side!

I can't wait for their wedding in October!

CHERRY BLOSSOM ENGAGEMENT SESSION

What a beautiful day we have for Nadeen and Gino's engagement session last week. It was the only day it did not rain. Thank goodness because Gino was coming in from out of town and we didn't have much wiggle room to move it.

We did their engagement session at the Buffalo History Museum and Japanese Gardens. We had to catch some of the cherry blossoms before it was too late. Luckily there was only one other photo shoot going on at the time. And it was one of our friendly photog friends. We both made sure we stayed out of each others way and we all got amazing images.

This is one of my favorites. Gino and Nadeen in their own world and surrounded by the cherry blossoms. And I love Nadeen's dress! It was perfect for this part of the shoot!

THROW BACK THURSDAY ENGAGEMENT SESSION IN CENTRAL PARK

We are taking you way back to Leyla and Michael's engagement session in New York City. We spent a few days with this lovely couple and photographed them all over the City.

This was Central Park day! We originally had a few different locations on mind for the Park, but did not realize at the time, how far away each place was. We only had a few hours to shoot, as Neal and I were flying home that day. So, we decided to just "go with it". Then we stumbled on this area of the Park. This was actually right near the giant fountain that is in almost every movie that has Central Park in it. 

There were amazing archways. When we walked to them, we had no idea there were mosaic tiled murals covering the walls and ceiling. Placing Leyla and Michael right in the middle was a must. I love the stairs in the back ground with all that natural light pouring in.

I am so happy Neal went into the archives and found this image!

Williamsville Private Residence Engagement

Here is another gorgeous image from Kristen and Chris's engagement shoot at a private residence.

I really really like this image. Yes, it was super cold, but the sun was out. I love the the rays of light and hazy color from the sun pouring through. It looks so pretty with the setting and red color of Kristen's shirt. The stone walls and rod iron fence also add to the beauty of this image.

Kristen and Chris were so great to photograph. We were all having such a fun time. I like this simple smile for the camera pose for this. This is definitely one of those photos that would look great on the wall!

We can't wait until June to photograph Kristen and Chris's wedding!

Glen Falls Winter Engagement

Hello everyone! I know I missed posting this past Thursday and Friday. I was feeling under the weather and was told I needed to rest. Neal always tells me I need to relax and rest. If you know me, I do not rest, even when I am sick. I have a hard time relaxing for more than an hour. But, I felt I needed to catch this cold before it got worse. And I do feel better! Thanks Neal!

So, on the absolute coldest day in January (so far), we photographed Kristen and Chris's engagement session. The high that day was 14 degrees!  We went to a private residence, with an amazing view. We were planning to do photos inside. But, once we saw the view and surrounding area, we ventured outside really quick for some shots. We lucked out that it snowed the day before and made the grounds look even better!

We were so happy there were a ton of pine trees in the area. We didn't have to worry about bare branches on the trees. And we got some great color.

So, here were are with Kristen and Chris! Don't you just love it! You can't even tell they were freezing! They were keeping each other nice and warm! We got some amazing images that day!

DOWNTOWN ENGAGEMENT SESSION

We recently did Christine and Ron's engagement session in Downtown Buffalo. And of course it had to be super cold outside. But we had so much fun!

We started their shoot at Niagara Square and Buffalo City Hall. We headed toward Statler City for a quick street shot. This back ground is always so cool. I love all of the street lights. And people always honk their horns at the happy couple! In a good way hahhah! 

I have to say, Christine and Ron did so good. It can't be easy to do something like this with so many cars and people watching as they go by!

OUTSIDE OF ELLICOTT SQUARE BUILDING

We are back with Keith and Dana outside of the Ellicott Square Building for their engagement session!

Not only is the inside of Ellicott Square Building amazing, but so is the outside. Look at the architecture. The detail is beautiful. How could we not go outside for a few photos.

Once again Keith and Dana's outfits worked great outside as well. It was time to change up the pose too! I really like this. So pretty!

Engagement Ellicott Square Building

Wow! We recently did Keith and Dana's engagement shoot at Ellicott Square Building. This location is gorgeous. Especially, when the couple is all dressed up!

We love the elevators in Ellicott Square. The gold antique color went perfect with Keith and Dana's outfits. We had them sneak into the open elevator and have a nice moment together. We were almost spying in on them. Good thing nobody hit any elevator buttons haha. Thankfully the doors stayed open the whole time we needed them to be! A gorgeous image!

IV STALLIONS ENGAGEMENT SESSION

We are a little late today with the post. Sorry readers. We had an early newborn session. Here are Kim and Ryan from their engagement session this week!

We started at the IV Stallions Sports Bar, where they met. Ryan was bartending and Kim plays indoor volleyball there. Ryan saw Kim at the bar and wanted to meet her! We decided to do something similiar for a photo.

We had Ryan back behind the bar for this one. He already made Kim a drink. Now it was time to flirt! 

Kim and Ryan had such great chemistry too! They were full of natural laughs and all about having fun! This was an awesome location for them. So much meaning behind it.

ENGAGEMENT SESSION ON THE WATER

We had such a fun engagement session with Kaitlyn and Dan the other night. We started off at Niagara Sqaure and ended up around the Canalside area. 

While walking around Canalside, the sun was beginning to set and the color of the sky was so pretty. We started walking toward the water and away from the hustle and bustle of the area. Well, little did we know, while passing the Naval Yard, it was a "Pokemon Go" party of people. I have never seen so many people on cell phones in my life, all walking around with their faces in ther phones!

Anyway, after making our way through the gamers, we made it to the boardwalk. Neal told Kaitlyn and Dan what he wanted for the shot and where to stand. Well, of course some tourists taking photos stood right where we needed to be. They were trying to take a giant selfie. Dan, being such a nice guy, offers to take the photo for them. They were so thankful. Little did they know, we really just needed them to move, before the colors in the sky vanished.

And here we are! We ended Kaitlyn and Dan's shoot with this gorgeoue image. And no, those are not bugs in the back. A giant flock of seagulls happened to fly behind them right as Neal started clicking! Enjoy!
