Specializing in Wedding Photography, Boudoir Portraits and Engagement Pictures in Buffalo, Rochester and most of Western NY

Wedding Information!

If you want your wedding day captured perfectly, without you having to worry about a thing, you are in the right place.

I specialize in heartfelt, joy filled, romantic weddings. I am passionate about love, laughter and memories. I want your grandchildren (in many years, obviously - no rush!) to look back at your wedding pictures and be able to feel how much love you shared on your wedding day. I want your great-grandchildren to flip through your wedding day album and say “wow, I look just like great-grandpa did when he was my age!” I want your family to look at your pictures one month or one year after your wedding and immediately be taken back to your wedding day - to be able to smell the flowers, hear the music, and feel the connection between you both, as well as your families.

My favorite thing about photographing weddings is that in twenty or thirty years down the road, the pictures of your wedding day will still be there, reminding you of the way he made you laugh during your vows, or how she cried when she read the letter you wrote for her. I love that photographs capture the seconds that felt like hours, and the hours that felt like seconds.

I am located in Buffalo, NY and travel all around Western New York for weddings.

The Difference

I want you to worry less and enjoy more, so I have tried to take the worry out wherever I can. My wedding packages all include exclusive timeline customization - so I will help you plan your timeline in a way that relieves all the stress and worry of the day. I also believe that wedding pictures should be seen. All of my packages include low resolution files so you can share them online until your frenemy Susan from high school blocks you, and your Aunt Debbie stops asking to see more. But more than that, I believe they should last. Weddings all come with heirloom wedding albums, so you can pull out your wedding album even after your computer crashed and you lost all your digital files (hey, I keep those for 5 years too, so don’t fret too much!) I also don’t limit the number of final images you receive. I go through and curate your final gallery to perfection, and then edit every single one of those final images to make sure you walk away with all of your memories in perfect quality.

Frequently Asked Questions


What is your Style?

Heartfelt, joy filled, and romantic. Those seem to be the words that resonate the strongest with me when I think of the weddings I photograph. I love to stay out of the way as much as possible, but give direction when needed. I try to meld my directions in with your day, so you don’t look back and remember a bossy photographer for your day, but instead remember laughing with your loved ones. For editing, I like true to life, classic edits. I don’t want you looking back at your wedding pictures and saying “oh, remember when having everything black and white except the flowers was a trend?” - I want you to look back and remember the day, not the trends.


What are your prices?

Wedding days range from 2500-6000 depending on hours, how many photographers, albums, additional portraits, etc. To get my full price list, please send me message so I can be sure I’m available on your wedding date, and send you my full collection list!


How much time will I need?

Ideally, I will arrive 2 hours before the bride needs to be leaving for the ceremony (or first look), and will stay at least an hour after open dancing starts. If there are sparklers, or lanterns, or something else happening later on, I'd love to stay for that too! If you aren’t sure about timing, you can always just reach out and let me know how you have your day planned so far and I can help come up with a unique timeline just for you! 


Can I add a 2nd photographer?

Yes, you can absolutely add a second photographer onto your wedding day if the service you’ve booked does not include one (most do!).  I have found that not all weddings require second photographers, but sometimes it's nice to have one anyway! To determine if you will need a second photographer, you can either contact me with your wedding details, or check out this blog post


How much experience do you have?

 

I've been doing this since 2008.  At this point I've captured a bit over 200 weddings, tons of engagements, and a whole lot of love. I have worked in churches where they only allow me in the balcony, and ceremonies where there are no lights (and even the windows have been darkened), to enhance the candle lit path.  I have shot in the rain, snow, fog and really bright sunlight. I've encountered almost every shooting situation I can think of (except underwater.... if you are having an underwater wedding, I have no experience to speak of, but am totally willing to try!). I am a "roll with the punches" type of girl, and don't really stress over much - I just figure out a way to overcome it, and make the end result beautiful.


How do we reserve our date?

I require a signed contract and $800 non-refundable retainer. That’s it, and the day is yours!  


What are your travel fees?

I do not charge travel fees for weddings unless it requires an overnight stay (anything over a 2 hour drive). I also do not charge travel fees to Cooperstown, NY or the immediate area (I have family there that I’d love to see and stay with!).

However, I do charge travel fees for portraits outside of Erie County (or 30 minutes from my house in Boston, NY), so while a wedding in Rochester will not have travel fees associated with it, if you desire to do your engagement portraits in Rochester as well, a travel fee of $50 will be applied.  


Do you do portraits?

Yes, I do family, engagement and senior portraits. To see prices or book your session, please go here:

I am not taking maternity or newborn portraits at this time, but can send you the names of some amazing maternity and newborn photographers in the area!


Do you cover LGBTQ Weddings?

First, can I say I’m sorry you even have to ask that? Or ever had to ask that? Yes, I cover all weddings and all the love. I’m a person that loves a person, and so are you. That’s all that matters, or should matter.
