FIVE YEAR WEDDING ANNIVERSARY SHOOT AT SALVATORE'S

Hey Monday...it's been a while. Neal and I have had a lot of things going on and posting has been really tough. Our creative juices are flowing and we are continuing to come up with awesome, new ideas. 

But, today, we say Happy 5 Year Anniversary to Vanessa and Anthony. Vanessa was our first, Disney bride you may remember. Well,their anniversary was April 14th. We are just finishing up their photo shoot (hopefully in time for Vanessa's Birthday on Tuesday).

For their photo session we went back to where the "Big Day" took place at Salvatore's Italian Gardens. We had, and always have a great time photographing Vanessa and Anthony. She wanted to go Roaring 20's style with outfits too. How fun! We can always count on Vanessa for a theme style shoot! And thank you to Anthony for going along with it too! 

Vanessa and Anthony have not been back to Salvatore's since the big rennovation and addition of the Delavan Hotel & Spa! They were amazed and so excited for the changes. It fit the photo shoot perfectly. 

This was one of my absolute favorites from the session. So fun for Anthony too! And hint hint, do you notice the pictures on the walls? We had to incorporate the amazing journey we have endured and captured with Vanessa and Anthony! We can't wait for the next adventure!

SPRING IS IN THE AIR

Spring was definitely in the air yesterday. The weather was amazing. I hope everyone got to enjoy the outdoors at some point! After the weekends Spring sessions and editing like crazy to deliver everyone's images by Monday, Neal and I enjoyed the day off and the weather!

Here is another gorgeous image from the Spring/Easter sessions at Neal Urban Studio. I love these girls! They were so cute! In between set changes, there was a lot of twirling! Well, I was twirling and Neal was moving the props.

This is one of our favorites from this session. Look at those smiles! And I loved their dresses. We didn't use that many props for this image. We kept it clean and neat. The vintage bike was perfect! All eyes on those cuties!

SPRING PORTRAIT

I wanted to post one more image from Gabby(that's just one of the nick names she has) and Wendy's Spring shoot at Neal Urban Studio.

We were not planning on using the blue couch for the Spring shoots. But, Gabby is a King Charles Spaniel and it seemed fitting to bring it in for a picture. And she even has her own portrait on the wall. What royalty! Fit for a Queen! In this case, 2!

I love the interaction between Gabby and Wendy. Gabby just loves to be with people and loves attention. I mean, look at that face. How can you not want to snuggle!

FITNESS SERIES

So..... It's Wednesday. Middle of the week and I am sure everyone can't wait for the weekend. Today's images are from a personal project Neal wanted to do. Time to let the creativity flow! Neal had a fun fitness shoot idea he wanted to do. It ended up turning into a series of images!

The amazing Anna and Jordan! Look at those bodies! (I think I need to work out with Anna).Even though it was a photo shoot, they were still motivating Neal and I to stay fit. And in a really fun way. What an awesome couple to photograph. We had so much fun with them. They kept us laughing the entire shoot! 

We take you to a private residence, old school, personal gym! It was the perfect location for this shoot. I mean, come on. A Bowflex! Do people really still use those? A Gold's Gym workout poster! Anna and Jordan loved it! They even got a mini workout in!

For Neal, personal projects are always a must. It's a way to free the brain from stress and just let the creative ideas flow. It's not often we get to do things like this either. I am so happy that Neal's vision came to life! And we had so much fun creating it!

TIME OUT SHOT!

We are back with Gabby and this time Neal at Neal Urban Studio!

This was definitely a time out moment for the shoot. Gabby just loves Neal and he can't get enough of her! Neal was shooting Gabby in the set. All of a sudden, Gabby strolled on over and jumped into Neal's lap. This is pretty normal when we are all together.

I told Neal not to move and grabbed the camera from him. It's not often that you see Neal or I in a photo. It was only right to capture this!

MISS GABBY & WENDY!

Hello everyone! Hope you had a wonderful weekend! Meet Gabriella Elizabeth and Wendy!

They came to visit us at Neal Urban Studio for the Spring/Easter Minis! This shoot is very special to us as Wendy is Neal's mom! Owner of Let's Do Wine and Buffalo BrewShop! Home brewers and wine makers, go check it out!

I love this image! A little back story about the rockers. The small chair belonged to my father when he was little and was passed onto my brother. Then I took it for the studio hahah! The large rocker belonged to my Nani! I asked if we could have it. We have a whole family affair going on in this photo!

Gabby is the sweetest dog ever. She is so mellow. In between photos, she jumped off the rocker for belly rubs. She loves them! A belly rub = take 5!

As we mentioned before, there are so many things we can do for these Spring/Easter Mini Sessions. You will love the images! Contact us to try and snag one of the last spots!

SPRING SHOOT FUN!

Meet the Allen children! Aren't they the cutest?! They came to Neal Urban Studio over the weekend for the Spring/Easter Mini Sessions.

They were such well behaved kids. They listened so well, that we got to do so many different combinations with the set for them. I absolutely loved their outfits too! They went perfect with the set. Pretty much all color combos and patterns go with this set. The Allen kids are definitely ready for Spring! I also think they are ready to start their modeling careers!

We have just a few slots left for the Spring/Easter Mini's! Contact us today to grab a spot! You will be so happy you did!

THE GUYS!

And now Frank and his guys!

Same location as the ladies at the Albright Knox Art Gallery. But, we decided to use the stairs instead. A bit less bright and airy. The guys were just as much fun to photograph as the ladies. A great wedding party! The guys had me laughing the whole day. It was actually a little tough to get them to give a serious face for a photo. As you can tell from the groomsmen on the left. He still has a giant smile. I love it! And look how fun their glasses are.

Frank got into "model" mode haha. Once again I didn't have to tell him how to pose. I think he practiced before the wedding!

MOM HELPING WITH THE WEDDING DRESS

Today we take you back to May 2016! This image is from Katie and Frank's wedding.

Katie got ready at her parents house. And what a gorgeous house it was. Look at how cute the hallway leading upstairs is! I love the color of the walls. The door leading out to a second floor balcony had so much light coming through. It was a great place to hang the dress. Katie's dress fit perfectly there.

We also thought this would be a good image to call mom in to help with the dress. Doesn't she look gorgeous! I just love this!

SPRING/EASTER MINI SHOOTS

I know I have neglected the Blog this past week, but we were busy in studio creating this amazing set for our Spring/Easter mini shoots! 

We are so excited for this set! We were inspired by the TV Show Fixer Upper with Chip and Joanna Gaines. I just love their farm style remodels and of course SHIPLAP!! I want to do something like this to our house (one day). Neal and I actually hung out in the set while waiting for clients to arrive for meetings the past few days! I almost took my book to the studio to read for a bit on those chairs Sunday!

We wanted to keep everything clean and neat for the set too. Everything is easily removable, so we can create some different looks for families. Neal posted some of our set ups on FaceBook Saturday if you want to check those out! 

If you have never done a photo shoot with Neal Urban Studio before, this is a great one to schedule for! We have a lot fun and you will get beautiful images.

The photos will be bright and airy and just in time for Spring!
