Beautiful Spring Wedding In Western NY | Jessica & Steve

Jessica & Steve are MARRIED!! You may recognize these two from their engagement photos that I took back before the world’s current situation was a problem in our area. I remember having felt lucky to get their session done because not long after, I was not able to photograph anyone for a while! Jessica & Steve continued to plan their wedding through all of this chaos and uncertainty, made whatever adjustments they needed to, and were able to stick with their original date! When Jessica first told me their wedding date was in April, all I could do was cross my fingers that we didn’t get snow! April weddings in Buffalo are always iffy because you never know what kind of weather you’re going to get! Wednesday we woke up to 3 inches of snow, and Saturday we had a gorgeous, sunny, 60 degree day! They really lucked out with beautiful weather for both their engagement photos AND their wedding day!

Jessica was so easy to work with throughout the whole planning process, making my job of creating their timeline so simple! She put such a wonderful group of vendors together for her day, and I’m so thankful for that! The florals were gorgeous, the DJ was so helpful in keeping the reception timeline photo friendly, and everyone worked together to make sure their day was amazing!

When I arrived to Jessica’s Mom’s house that morning (which is actually the house I grew up in!), hair and makeup was almost done, making it so much easier for me to keep everyone on schedule. I also felt so grateful to have such an easy bridal party to work with! This allowed us to get their bridal party photos done in what felt like less than 10 minutes, and use the rest of portrait time, for their first photos as HUSBAND & WIFE!!! 🥰 We were able to use the water like they had hoped for, and the photos that resulted are some of my all time favorites in my portfolio! As I took them, I just new they were going to be amazing, and they really are! I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do as you scroll through.

To Jessica & Steve, and their families – I want to thank you all so much for allowing me to be such an important part of your wedding day, and trusting me to capture these important memories for you!

I deeply believe that the experience you have with your wedding photographer can make or break how you feel about your images. Since 2018, I have been making sure my clients not only get the images that they want, but that they feel well taken care of throughout the process as well.
