A few years ago at a wedding I was photographing, I remember taking a picture of one of the maids of honor and her boyfriend. I remember this wedding so well, it was one of the first weddings I shot when I first started my own business, and all of those clients will always hold a special place in my heart. I remember being moved by an emotional speech from the co-maids of honor and thinking about what a beautiful friendship these girls clearly had. Little did I know that a few years later, I would be photographing another wedding with these three ladies in it, this time with that couple who I snapped a picture of as the bride and groom!
Brittany and Scot’s wedding was on a beautiful summer day at Becker Farms and Vizcarra Vineyards in Lockport, just outside of Buffalo. It was my first time photographing a wedding at this venue, and I cannot wait to shoot there again! The first thing that comes to mind when I think about this wedding is that everyone was just SO NICE. Brittany, Scot, both of their families, and their bridal party were all extremely kind and welcoming to me and were such a pleasure to photograph! There was so much joy in the air that pervaded the whole day and I absolutely loved photographing it.
Becker Farms has all the scenery that a photographer could hope for! From the old red barns, to the vine covered walls, to the acres of vineyard, it was perfect! I got so inspired by the setting that at one point during bride and groom portraits Scot said “you’re kind of like a mad scientist,” and although some might not take this as a compliment, I thought it was probably a very accurate description of the way I shoot when I’m excited -- I can't help it!
Brittany + Scot - I’m so thankful that you two trusted me to capture this day for you. It doesn’t take long to tell that you are both thoughtful, kind, and just genuinely GOOD people who deserve nothing but the best and I hope your future holds exactly that! I hope you love these photos and can always look at them and remember what a perfect wedding day you had.
