2018 Buffalo Weddings Recap

A selection of our favorite photos from every wedding in 2018

As we began to look back on the 2018 Buffalo Wedding Season, it became clear that we covered a lot of ground! 2018 was most definitely one for the books, it’s been a year of hustle, focus, and growth. It’s also been a year filled with learning, connecting, and loving. I am so thankful for every bit of it. As we start the journey into 2019, I wanted to take some time to reflect and look back on 2018. As we sifted through over 100,000 images (no joke!) that we took in 2018, we selected some to represent the highlights of the year…. we meaning mostly my lovely assistant Gabby 🙂

I just have to say that I can’t believe how lucky I am, that wedding photography is my career. There is nothing quite like being there to document the happiest day of people’s lives. I am so grateful for each of the couples whose weddings we, as a team, photographed this year!! I can’t thank these couples enough for trusting me with capturing their day.

I am so excited to share with you photographs from our 2018 weddings. Looking back at these images brings me so much happiness and gratitude!

Brittany and Nick’s ‘Rock the Dress’ Photoshoot!

Can I just say ‘WOW’! This dress… this sunset… just perfect. I had to include these fun photos from our shoot with this couple at Woodlawn Beach State Park!
