Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Speaking of LOVE, this day is the perfect day to post this blog for my newest newly-weds, Taylor and Korey!
The bride was SO energetic, joyous, and wonderful from my first shutter click to the last. Even though it was a slightly mild 40 degree day in January, their wedding was one of my first winter wedding of year. The happy couple had planned a SNOW wedding… Unfortunately, mother nature had other plans; it was rainy and windy! You know how unpredictable Buffalo NY weather is. It was evident that a great deal of planning went into the day. Taylor and Korey were chillaxed all day long. There was no drama and not a soul complained once about the weather. Everyone had so much FUN, especially ME!
I first met Taylor at a salon called Hair Reformation. She works with amazing team of beautiful ladies! I had my hair done there last year and I still get compliments from total strangers everywhere I go. Thanks girls!
The rich burgundy colors and navy suits complimented her bridal bouquet amazingly, certainly a dream come true for any photographer!!
Taylor and Korey wanted their first look to be very intimate; only two of them at Babeville Buffalo NY where their wedding reception and ceremony would take place. My second shooter / daughter Halle and I stayed far away give then some personal space. The moment was very emotional and they shared misty eyes. The groom was overjoyed to finally see his beautiful bride in her gown after so a year of anticipation.
When we arrived at the Albright Knox Gallery in Buffalo, NY, the rain showed no signs of relenting. There was a steady mist falling, a strong breeze, and the sky was completely overcast. We camped out in a confined, covered space to grab some shots with outdoor lighting. I was nervous that Taylor and Korey may be stressed out when they arrived… but they walked up with HUGE smiles on their faces and umbrellas in hand! I knew that these shots would become the favorites of the day, despite the dismal weather :) And they are fantastic!!
Taylor and Korey, thank you so much for choosing me to be a part of your incredible wedding day celebration! I am so, so grateful for you both and I hope you enjoy some of my favorite images! We love you guys!
