Paul and Kerry are getting married this summer at Becker Farms, and we’re so excited that we get to be a part of their wedding day!  I know I’ve mentioned this before, but Becker Farms and Vizcarra Vineyards is definitely one of our favorite venues.  We love the atmosphere, the laid-back country vibe, the amazing food, and the wonderful staff, who always treat us with such kindness and hospitality.  Paul and Kerry want their wedding to be a relaxed and comfortable celebration of their love with their family and closest friends, so Becker Farms was definitely a great fit for them.  We can’t wait!!

P and K decided that they wanted to meet up at Becker Farms for their e-shoot, too, and that was fine with us, considering that we’re such huge fans of the place.  ;)  It’s beautiful all year round, but it’s especially beautiful in late autumn, when the vines are loaded with grapes, and the apples are starting to fall off the trees and scatter.  We started out in the vineyard.  If these two were nervous about being photographed, we would have never known!  They were so genuinely happy and having a great time just being together, hanging out in the vineyard.  Their love for each other was so obvious, and it made us even more excited for the wedding day!

Paul made this awesome Save the Date sign himself!  He’s so crafty!  We took some real, card-worthy shots with the sign, I swear….these two were my favorites, though.  ;)
The barn across the street from the main farm is one of our favorite spots.  It started to rain, so we just ducked in there for a few!  
I’m sure everyone recognizes this location by now.  We’ve shot here quite a few times now, but it’s such a gem!  Every time we go back, we see something different and amazing.
I love this shot!  You both look positively dashing here, guys!!  ;)
Since the rain wasn’t letting up, we needed to find another “covered” location, so we headed into Lockport, and grabbed a few shots by the locks.  This spot is one of our new favorites!  Can’t wait to shoot there again!

Paul and Kerry – thanks so much for spending some time with us! It was great to get to know you a little bit as a couple…you are so much fun! We are so excited for the wedding, and look forward to capturing many wonderful moments and memories for you!! Can’t wait! Much love, J + B :)

We had the absolute pleasure to be a part of Kaitlyn and TJ’s wedding, on a chilly but beautiful October day! They are both such wonderful people, and they really made us feel so welcome the whole day. Even though it was cold, rainy, and ridiculously windy, there was nothing that could dampen their spirits. They were both so excited to marry their best friend, and it showed in every photo. We are so happy to have been able to capture these moments for them! :)

I started out the day at Kaitlyn’s parents’ home.  Kait ran a little late at the salon, so I spent the extra time I had with this gorgeous girl!  Isn’t she beautiful?!  She is such a sweetheart!

Kait soon returned with her mom and sister, and started getting ready!
Then, we were off to Zion Lutheran Church for a very beautiful ceremony!
Due to the weather, Kait and TJ opted to just have photos done right in the church, which was fine with us!  It was really a beautiful space to shoot in!
Our next stop was Samuel’s Grand Manor for a super fun reception!  Kait and TJ booked The Ayres Photo Booth, so we got that all set up during cocktail hour, and it was ready to roll soon after!
After two beautiful and heartwarming parent dances, the dance floor opened up, and things got wild!  It was a fun dance floor for us to shoot!  Everyone really seemed to have an awesome time!  :)
The Ayres Photo Booth was in full effect, and everyone really seemed to enjoy that, too!  Good times were had by all!!

Kaitlyn and TJ – thank you so much for choosing us to be a part of your wedding day!! We had a wonderful time! You two are such a sweet, adorable couple, and we wish you all the happiness in the world!! Much love, J + B :)
