Michaela and Jamie are just the sweetest couple and I love their adorable little pup, Chewie. Any Starwars fans out there? My boys thought is was the best name ever, because according to them, he looks like a miniature version of the real character. I am so appreciative for Michaela and Jamie' s flexibility in meeting me while I was back in Buffalo. I was checking the weather all day before my flight from Orlando, and the weather outlook was not favorable, to say the least. The temperature also dropped 20 degrees on this particular day. Luckily, it cleared up and we made it happen in this beautiful area full of spring blooms! A.k.a. not the original, chosen location. I really don't think it would matter where they where photographed, they are such a kind and lovely couple and that would show through anywhere! I can hardly wait for their wedding in January!!!
I love engagement sessions. It is so great to get to know a couple before their actual wedding date! Amanda and Matt are truly the sweetest couple, so kind, and just beautiful people. And, can I please have Amanda's hair?! Gah!! I had so much fun with them at their beach session. I can hardly wait until their summer wedding next year! For all of my friends in Orlando, here is proof that there are beaches near Buffalo and that it is not always snowing!! Only for about 7 months! Ha
Mary Catherine and Alex will be getting married in Tuscany in a few short weeks. Before the big day, they knew they needed to have a civil ceremony in the U.S. Since they were coming all the way from London, why not have all the wedding festivities during one trip?! With family in NJ and Buffalo, they somehow managed it! Engagement Party in NJ, check. Bridal shower in Buffalo, check. Legally become husband and wife, check. Next stop, a fairy tale wedding in the Italian countryside! Living the dream, these two! Congratulations Mary Catherine and Alex! It was a beautiful celebration and I was so happy to be a part of it. I hope you have the most wonderful wedding in Tuscany and I wish you a lifetime of happiness together! Ciao!!
Caitlin and Mike met the traditional way, at a bar on Chippewa, close to seven years ago. They discovered they couldn't live without each other about two years ago and made it official with their recent engagement. I'm obsessed with her sparkly, solitaire ring with that thin gold band!! Simple, elegant, gorgeous. Caitlin and Mike share a love for all things in the Queen City. They are passionate about living downtown so the most fitting setting for their photos was scenic, downtown Buffalo. Their outfits were perfect with a hint of red and blue symbolizing their upcoming summer wedding. Dying over that berry colored dress for Fall! Once we finished wandering through the Theatre District and the harbor, there was just enough light left for us to climb the stairs to their rooftop with the most amazing skyline views. We all may or may not have huffed and puffed our way up there, but it was so worth it! Below are some of my favorites from this fun engagement session!
Pinky promises and piggy back rides...I just love LOVE! This adorable pair is so much fun and so in love! Hearing about the proposal was so romantic and the bond these two share is amazing. Here are a few of my favorites from their playful engagement session!
There is something about Autumn and what seems like constant precipitation, but you can't beat cozy-ing up on a cool and misty Fall day. I love this relaxed and laid back couple and had a great time catching their laughs and sweet glimpses at one another while dodging rain drops :) Stephanie and Jon totally made the best of a wet and chilly October day and snuggled and laughed through it! Can't wait to capture their big day next July!!!
Lizzii and Mike got engaged at Chestnut Ridge, so it was the perfect place for engagement photos! I was so happy when the sun finally peeked through the clouds as it was setting. I'm sure they thought I was insane while I waited for perfect light, but I hope all the extra long poses and kissing weren't pure torture! Lol. Congratulations to this fun loving couple, I can hardly wait for your August wedding!!

Julie has been one of my best friends for years and her fiancé, Tommy, is an amazing guy. I was super excited to have the opportunity to capture this special time in their lives. Not to get all mushy, but I am so happy for her! They are so cute together. Lots of love and laughter in this relationship! Julie happens to work at one of the most picturesque places in Naples, the La Playa Beach resort...so why not take advantage of such an amazing locationt?! Tommy and Julie were pretty game for anything. We had fun being totally goofy and laughing hysterically. So lucky (especially after hearing about the frigid weather Buffalo temps that week) to have a perfect night with great weather and a gorgeous sunset. I have so many favorites, it was hard to choose which ones to use! Jules, hope you love these as much as I do! xo
Kind of obsessed with her shoes!
They were all about having some fun with this...I never stopped laughing!

She said Yes! It was an early wake up call, but I'm so glad we did it...The light was incredible! What a gorgeous engagement shoot. Their adorable and lively dog, Jackpot, made an appearance as well. Jack showed up in his bow tie, ready for the big day. :) Andy got pretty creative and proposed on a Sunday morning by surprising Melanie with Mayer Brothers donuts and had her beautiful ring in the donuts. I’m so happy for you guys! These two make such a fun couple, I can’t wait to celebrate with them at their wedding in May!
