Although there are many, many things I love about being a wedding photographer, one of my most favorite things is getting to experience and explore all sorts of gorgeous locations that I would otherwise never have seen. That was absolutely the case with Margaret and CW’s shoot, which took place at Margaret’s family’s beach house in Canada. I didn’t grow up in Buffalo, so I never really knew that having a beach house in Canada (just across the border) was kind of a “thing” that Buffalo people do; but, now that I’ve seen it, I can totally understand why! It’s absolutely stunning up there!! When I stood on the shores of Lake Erie (the Canadian version) to photograph Meg and CW on the sailboat, I could see the iconic Buffalo windmills looking ever so tiny, and I thought about how many times I had previously stood right next to those huge windmills, wondering  just exactly what was on the other side of the lake.  I would always point across the water and ask Ben, “What’s over there?”  He would always just say, “Canada,” a typical one-word Ben response.  But, now, I know exactly what’s over there.  :)

Meg and CW are getting married in just a couple of weeks, and we’re so excited to hang with them again!!  They were so much fun, and so easy to work with, so happy and in love – exactly the kind of couple we like to spend our time with.


Margaret and CW – thank you so much for spending some time with us (and for putting up with the 9 gazillion photos I insisted on taking of you in the sail boat)!! We had a great time working with you both, and we’re looking forward to lots more fun and laughs in just a couple of weeks!! Much love, J + B :)

Ashley and Pete are getting married this summer (in just a few weeks!!), and we are SO excited to be a part of their wedding day!  We met up with these two lovebirds in the quaint little town of Hilton, NY, where they currently live.  They wanted to do a few shots at the park right across the street from their house, where they spend quite a bit of time.  Having your engagement photos taken in a place that has special meaning to you is always a great idea – that way, you’ll be able to look back at your photos in ten years, twenty years, fifty years, and remember not only how happy you were, but also the special places where you spent time together!  :)

Ashely and Pete also reserved a rustic local vineyard for us to take photos in!  It was so, so pretty!!  

Ashley and Pete – thank you so much for hanging out with us, and showing us around your hood!! We had such a great time getting to know you both, and we’re SO excited for your BIG DAY (coming up super soon)!!! Much love, J + B :)

    Pete + I had such a great day with Jen + Ben. They were very easy going which made us so comfortable for our first photoshoot. They captured very beautiful “real” pictures of us and we can’t wait to spend our wedding day with them!

    Ashley & Pete are such a friendly, warm and content looking couple. I don’t know them & their pics make me feel …. well …. satisfied with life. You did a fine job of capturing them.

    They look so happy and the photos are just gorgeous! I love the black and white where they have their arms around each other and are looking straight at the camera.
