Penn State engagement session:: Abby & Marvin

Since it’s where they met, and is soon to be their alma mater as they go from undergraduate students to proud (and married!) college graduates in just a few months, Abby and Marvin knew they wanted their engagement photos taken at Penn State University. I had never been to a campus so big and it was fun to explore a bit and let them share with me about their life at Penn State, their plans for their future, and the excitement they have for their upcoming wedding. I can’t wait to join these two back in Western New York this Summer…they are truly one of the warmest and most adorable couples!
And of course, they wanted a few photos with some of the most iconic and memorable parts of Penn State… the Lion, and enjoying some ice cream from the Penn State Creamery!

A Classy Winter Wedding: Jon & Melissa

Genuine, vibrant, welcoming, generous, joyful. From the few hours I spent with Melissa and Jon on their wedding day, it was easy to see what kind of people they really are. Melissa greeted me with a hug, and the rest of their wedding day felt like I was catching up with old friends, sharing small conversation with everyone there. Most of the time of course, I was shooting, but the warmth that flowed from the love Melissa and Jon share made the day feel like a small and intimate family gathering when it was really a large celebration with people who traveled huge distances to be there for them. Isn’t that precisely what a wedding is about? Joining lives and hearts and families, all the while sharing in and supporting two people who connect the larger groups together? Melissa and Jon, you are truly one of a kind and I’m so grateful for the chance I got to capture your wedding day.
Their wedding took place at the beautiful Franklin Plaza in downtown Troy, NY.

Dedario Family at home: Buffalo Lifestyle Family Session

A few weeks ago I got the chance to visit with and capture some casual portraits for this family in their home. The Dedario’s are clients I have worked with multiple times and I’m so grateful for their support of my work, and the opportunity to see how this family has changed and grown over the past couple of years. The small moments are what matters and I’m glad this family has some of those captured for them.
